NORTH EAST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

We’re husband & wife / best friends, who also happen to be award winning photographers; passionate, professional North East wedding photographers with a creative, relaxed & distinctive documentary style and a love for a fun filled, party wedding!

Based in County Durham, up in the North East of England, photographing weddings across the country including County Durham, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland, Yorkshire, Scotland, Lancashire & Northamptonshire to name a few.

YOUR PERSONALITIES, YOUR GUESTS, YOUR PARTY

We love weddings, and hanging out with you and your guests, and as such, our Wedding Photography is driven by you, your personalities, your guests, your party. Not by a series of shot lists created from previous weddings and each and every wedding we document is different, each with their own uniqueness, driven by their own vibe & personality.

We want to document the atmosphere & essence of the day, utilising creative lighting, unorthodox angles, reflections, framing and bold colours, to create compelling, unique fine-art images that exceed that of more traditional wedding photography.

CREATIVE, ARTISTIC, UNOBTRUSIVE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

We understand that for most people, they hate having their picture taken. We make it as relaxed as possible and much prefer blending in as if we were just another pair of guests, capturing your day as it unfolds, along with the feeling, the fine details, the love, emotion and the expressions without intruding or unnecessary posing.

We don't spend the day directing, bossing you (or anyone else for the matter) around, or try to instruct you in anyway - we document your day as it unfolds, by letting you guys relax, and do your thing with your nearest and dearest! Have a look at our 'Best of Highlights' to get an idea of how we shoot.

We strive to create compelling, emotive and original ideas that tell the story of your own unique day; when you are who you are, no fake smiles, no clichés, nothing 'cheesy', no 'staged' scenes; Just honest, emotive, real moments in time, captured forever!

As sought after wedding photographers with such a unique style, we've been lucky enough to document weddings at so many beautiful weddings across the entire UK and many of the most exclusive North East wedding venues! Have a look on our ‘Love Letters’ page for some of the amazing reviews our couples have left for us!

FUN & DOWN TO EARTH

We're a fun & down to earth couple and place a great deal of focus on building a rapport with our couples - this really helps us to be able to 'get you' as a couple; combined with our fun & relaxed way of shooting, it really helps our couples relax and it shows through in our wedding photography.

Thank you both so so so much for the day! You honestly both felt like great friends we had always known. We know we wouldn't have had a better photographer for the day than you guys.

We had such a fab day, and it wouldn't have been half the day it was without you guys and we know you have captured every moment.

STORY TELLING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

We firmly believe that anyone viewing your wedding photographs should be able to feel the atmosphere, the vibe of the day, not just a bunch of photographs randomly taken during the day! We take an artistic approach to story telling, using light, angles, and colour to capture individual moments in time to tell this wonderful story.

We use our imagination to creatively capture a magical, authentic story of your day as it unfolds; using a blend of contemporary & creative signature imagery to not only capture the beauty of your day, but tell it's story through Candid Moments, Real Emotions & Real Connections - this allows you both to be awesome and truly experience the magic, the emotion and moments that make up your day - not forgetting the little details that you've spent so much time creating that help stitch a wedding together.

It was magical and we both loved having you there. It's hard to describe but it felt like we were pals from the moment we met and that made it all so much fun and a delight to be around you.

Oh my god these are SO SO GORGEOUS! Really happy with them, they're even better than we'd hoped  You've really captured the atmosphere of the whole event (as well as making us both look very fit, so thanks for that!) - just been trying to pick photos to put up on facebook and ended up putting almost all of them on, I just couldn't pick favourites!

You were both absolutely brilliant, I'll definitely be recommending you to everyone who gets married in the future - thanks so much for making our day even more perfect and for giving us such wonderful memories that will let us remember that happiness forever.

Anna-Katharina + Gary - Rowallan Castle, Ayrshire, Scotland

Craig and Andrea photographed our wedding in October last year. and it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

We love all of our pictures. Those that the pair took during our engagement shoot, as well as those of our big day at Rowallan Castle in Ayrshire.

Craig and Andrea offer a very personal service. We got to meet them over drinks before committing. Throughout the process they were incredibly kind and friendly.

On the day itself they were unobtrusive and mingled with our guests, but somehow still managed to capture every little moment from various angles.

We also had two videographers. And all four of them worked together in unison to give us the best results possible.

Craig and Andrea went out of there way to make our dreams come true. Craig even smuggled in some smoke bombs after I mentioned that I loved similar pictures he had taken with other couples. Craig & Andrea also skipped deserts to ensure we got some beautiful sunset pictures.
