– Authentic storytelling for laid back lovers –

Hi, we’re Sam & Louise!

We’re a pair of documentary wedding photographers in Lincolnshire. We specialise in natural wedding photography with a creative twist. Our approach is totally relaxed and formality free. At the heart of what we do we’re story tellers, eager to capture every awesome moment. From belly laughs to bouquet tosses, first kisses to first dances. We want to be there to document all of it! We love laid back couples seeking wedding photographs that are anything but traditional. Stuffy poses and fake smiles aren’t us at all- we work best with like minded love birds who prefer a more candid approach. If that sounds like what you’re after why not get to know us a little better and read more about our approach to photographing weddings. If everything sounds good, get in touch and let’s have a chat! 

What’s so special about these Lincolnshire wedding photographers?

We’ll be honest- almost anyone can take a half decent photo these days. Fancy cameras and photography courses are more affordable than ever, but there are some things money can’t buy. Money can’t buy experience.  It can’t buy creativity, initiative or skill. If you want something more than a few basic photos, you’ll need experienced story tellers who can anticipate moments building, who know weddings inside out. Weddings are a unique beast and sadly not every fabulous photographer turns out to be a fabulous wedding photographer. If you want great wedding photos that tell a story and photos that capture a moment in time you’ll need someone who’s completely invested in your day. You’ll need someone who wont just sit on the sidelines waiting for things to happen as by then it’s already too late. You need someone who takes initiative and seeks out opportunities. That’s key. That’s us.

We’re incredibly fortunate to receive, on average, around 350 wedding enquiries each year. Sadly we can’t shoot them all! We accept a very limited number of wedding commissions each year in order to ensure we have enough time and flexibility in our schedule to dedicate to the awesome couples who choose us to be a part of their story. We generally accept anything from 25-35 weddings per season, depending on the location and our availability. Wherever possible we will try to make things work for you, we’d love to be part of your story. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if we can be of assistance, we’d love to hear about your plans.

Our Credentials: Where it all began

We shot our first wedding together back in 2011 and it’s been one big adventure ever since! When we started out we were 20 and 23, finding our feet in what felt like a sea of old blokes posing brides awkwardly in front of big windows. We loved photography but that really wasn’t ur style. We knew it wasn’t what a lot of modern couples wanted either. As a result of this, convinced there was a better way, we decided to give “our way” a go. Bright eyed and bushy tailed we hoped to sell our contemporary approach to anyone who’d have us. 8 years later we’re now finally coming up for air, wondering where the time went! It’s been quite the whirlwind. Who knew relaxed, fuss free coverage and booking yourselves two new best mates would be so popular?

Around 250 weddings later, we’re still pinching ourselves and wondering how our little pipe dream became something more. Over the years we’ve been incredibly lucky to have been commissioned to shoot weddings all over the UK and overseas. We’ve also picked up several awards along the way and you’ll see a small collection of our blog/magazine features and industry awards above. We are also humbled to have been named as one of the 5 best wedding photographers in the UK. That’s not too shabby is it!?

Blowing our own trumpet is definitely not our strong point, so why not get to know us, behind the camera, a little better? If you like our work who knows, we could just be the right photographers for you too! You can also read more about our approach to shooting weddings if you’d like.

Testimonials

“Sam & Louise are simply amazing”

They are so lovely and literally fitted into our wedding seamlessly. I think great photographers shouldn’t be seen and honestly, I could not remember a moment they were in our faces. The photos are stunning and they love their job so much. With Sam crawling on the ground to get the perfect photo and Louise keeping everything in check when needed. I felt like they were part of our special day and not someone we paid to be there. (Wedding photographers in Lincolnshire)
