We're Rob and Rebecca, a husband and wife team from Redcar on the North East coast. 
We like travelling, adventures, cats (especially ours) and pineapple on pizza - you can't tell us we're wrong, it's great and you know it.
We're people photographers, and we absolutely love it! There’s so much to love, but the best part is getting to know the people we work with; finding out what’s important to them and what makes them tick!
Natural light is our jam, using the scenery around us and the light available to get creative and produce stunning photos you're going to want to hang on your wall. We want you to feel amazing and we're going to do whatever it takes to make that happen!
Our style is super laid back and relaxed, we aim to put you at ease in front of the camera to create authentic photos that show your personality. We want you to have a fun time and forget we're even taking your photograph - totally carefree. Plus, we've already had our wedding day so we know exactly how you're feeling!
If you're looking for a pair of photographers to help capture your memories for years to come, drop us a message and let's hang out!

Rebecca

Way back when, my mum bought me my first toy camera, and since then I was hooked. I used to carry a little film camera everywhere with me on our family holidays, then my mum showed me her old SLR and I knew I needed one of my own. I studied photography at college, and was totally in love. I went on to become a pharmacist as I am also passionate about helping people, though I always carry a camera with me still.
When life settled down I made it my mission to make photography a big part of my life again, and I’ve never looked back!

I absolutely love wedding days. They’re so full of love and happiness, and it just spills over to everyone there! I’m usually the chatty one of the two of us, I’ll be arranging your group photographs and talking you through your portrait session. I’m normally the one with the slightly mad ideas, and have to ask Rob how we can create images that are a bit different to the norm. 
 

FAVOURITE PART OF A WEDDING DAY

Having a little 1-on-1 time with you guys after your ceremony. It’s that massive sigh of relief meets giddy smiles moment, and I absolutely love being around for that!

FAVOURITE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPH TO CAPTURE

Confetti time! Takes a bit of work getting everyone lined up, and instructing guests how to throw confetti, but getting that perfect shot of all the multicoloured madness makes it all worthwhile!

BEST PART OF BEING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

All of it! I love getting to know you and learning all about your day, I love being there on the wedding day seeing how all the plans turn out, and I love reliving it all over again when we edit the photos and send the final images to you.

STRANGE FACT 

I’m really into country music. It’s my mum’s influence, I even went to line dancing classes when I was younger.

SUPERPOWER

Bringing people into our nerd culture. My gateway is making people play Dungeons and Dragons, no-one who has ever played it can say they don’t like it!

Rob

I got into photography when I got my first "proper" camera - on something of a whim. 

I did a degree in engineering and I love photography because it's a science-y art form - that is super cool to me.

 

I'm happiest when capturing real reactions and emotions - you'll often find me half-hidden, waiting to strike.

I love hearing and sharing stories and creating memories with our couples that will last for a lifetime.

From me, you can expect a creative perspective and a view into the other half of the morning preparations!

FAVOURITE PART OF A WEDDING DAY

When the music plays and the couple first see one another as they come down the aisle.

So many amazing and emotional photographs!

FAVOURITE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPH TO CAPTURE

 

I love doing the portraits of the couple, being able to spend time with you and capture some really authentic photographs as well as some fun, creative ones. It's also a great time for you to chill too!

Extra fun if we have smoke bombs or sparklers or something to play with.

BEST PART OF BEING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER 

 

Meeting amazing people, hearing their beautiful love stories so far and sharing their happiest day with them.

STRANGE FACT 

I have too many hobbies - honestly, ask me about them.

SUPERPOWER

 

I have a bit of a green thumb - I love being in the garden whether it's the back garden or the allotment.

Behind the Camera

WE FIRST MET AT SCHOOL WHEN WE WERE 11 & WE'VE BEEN TOGETHER SINCE WE WERE 16

WE HAD A LORD OF THE RINGS THEMED WEDDING!

WE SHARE OUR HOME WITH INDIE, OUR FEISTY RESCUE CAT

WE LOVE BOARD GAMES & SPENT MOST OF OUR UNI DAYS PLAYING DUNGEONS & DRAGONS (and we still play!)

OUR FAVOURITE TIPPLE IS A GIN AND TONIC (LET'S HAVE A DRINK TOGETHER AND CHAT ABOUT YOUR WEDDING!)

We love travel and exploring new and exciting places. Our list of places to visit is forever growing and we can't wait to get back out on the road and start the next adventure!

Our dream destination is Japan and we'll get there one day.

We'd love to hear from you if you're planning an elopement - why not take us along with you!?
