Hi and thanks so much for visiting!  We are Sam (Samantha) and Steve, and we are a husband and wife team of award winning wedding photographers based in Bicester, Oxfordshire, but working across the UK and beyond. We always work together as a partnership at weddings, and specialise in a natural, unposed, observational style of photography, also known as documentary wedding photography.  

We normally cover the whole of a wedding from getting ready in the morning (both of you) through to at least one hour after your first dance. (Often longer, as we love a good party!) Our goal is to provide a photographic record of your day; who was there, what happened when, who did what. We do this in an informal, relaxed way, without interfering or controlling. We often get mistaken for guests on the wedding day, as we mingle amongst your guests, looking for key moments.

Our couples usually tell us their favourite photographs from their wedding are the ones they didn't know we had taken!

2019 has been our busiest ever year for wedding photography

Here’s a short slide show of some of our weddings so far in 2019. Turn up the sound……

If you are dreading the thought of spending your wedding day posing for hours in stiff group shots and forced poses, we know what you mean.  We have been guests at these kind of weddings too!  Thats why we don't work that way as wedding photographers. Instead, we work in the background, listening and observing, capturing those special moments that made your wedding day unique and yours.  We never try and take over or tell your family and friends what do.  We use small, quiet, non intimidating and un-obtrusive cameras by Fuji. And we never ask you, or your guests to "say cheese". Ever. Promise.  

So, if you are looking for wedding photographers that won't take over your day, will ensure you spend as much time as possible on the day with your friends and family, and will provide lasting memories of the whole of your day; you may have come to the right place!

We are proud to be the 2019 Guides for Brides Customer Service Award Winners for Photography!

Amazing! Sam and Steve are so lovely and really helped us achieve the most perfect memories in our photographs of our big day. We cannot say thank you enough!

From the point we first talked to Sam and Steve about photographing our wedding they were incredibly helpful in answering all our questions and making sure our wedding would be a unique experience. On the day Sam and Steve captured all the moments we saw and those we didn’t. Their approach was never intrusive but always in the right place and our guests have commented how great they were and an integral part of the day. We can’t thank them enough for helping make our day so special from start to finish.
