Together we have shot at wedding venues up and down the country and indeed across Europe. We are experienced destination wedding photographers. We have consecutively been awarded the best wedding photographer in the East of England award in 2015 and 2016. As wedding industry award winners we are well known throughout the industry and are recognised as being one of the top 5 wedding photographers in the UK.
It’s lovely to be professionally recognised as one (well, two!) of the best wedding photographers in the UK. Or amongst the Best UK wedding photographers if you prefer.
When it comes to the cost of a wedding photographer we are not the cheapest. We do not aim to be cheap, instead we aim to provide value for money. We are priced sensibly and fairly according to our time and skill investment. Reviews for Sam and Louise photography are unanimously positive and we are fortunate to have hundreds of happy couples.
Wedding photographers Suffolk based Sam and Louise are available for wedding commissions and private mentoring. Also offered are couple shoots. Other photography requests considered on an individual basis although we tend to fill our calendar with weddings 18-24 months in advance. We do not currently offer wedding photography workshops.
Some of the things we love most are alternative weddings, wedding first looks, pets at weddings- especially dogs at weddings. We love wedding bands and amazing wedding flowers. Jaw dropping wedding cakes and incredible wedding food are always winners too. You also cannot go wrong with quality wedding entertainments. A live band goes down a treat with wedding guests!
Some of the things we are best known for is our unique and wow night time wedding photography. We specialise in this and are proud to bring an alternative take on traditional wedding portraiture.
Traditional is something we definitely are not. We do not offer traditional, posed wedding photography. Instead Sam and Louise photography offer alternative, contemporary wedding photography. Sam and Louise offer natural, creative and fun wedding photography. We have a distinct style that focuses on the real moments and natural emotion of the day. This is so important to us and is an important element in our work and portfolio.
Something we always recommend is booking a professional wedding film maker or cinematographer. These are more commonly referred to as wedding videographers. Our preferred wedding film makers are Unique visuals wedding films. They produced our wedding film last year but we have also been working alongside them since 2011. They have become great friends of ours and share our laid back, natural approach to capturing a wedding day. We cannot recommend them enough.
When booking a wedding photographer or a wedding videographer we recommend that you see many examples of their work including full wedding galleries or films. This will help you to decide whether you like their style throughout the course of a wedding day. You cannot always tell from an online portfolio if someone is for you. Seeing a full gallery or film is also usually what sets a top quality photographer of videographer from those who are cheaper. From looking at online portfolios it can be easy to compare packages on a like for like basis, but the devil is in the detail. Cheaper photographers or videographers work may not be of a high standard throughout the full day due to one of the many challenges faced by professionals when shooting a wedding. For example, mixed lighting, low lighting or time management issues. If someone is cheap there is usually a reason.
