Natural . Creative . Timeless

Essex wedding photographers – Sam & Louise photography

Hi, we’re Sam & Louise! We’re a husband and wife wedding photography team in Essex. We have been shooting weddings together since 2011 and we specialise in natural, creative wedding photography. Our approach is totally relaxed and formality free. For us, there’s nothing more exciting than capturing the fun, laughter and spontaneity that weddings provide. That’s why, for the last 7 years we’ve chosen to specialise in wedding photography. Aside from engagement shoots, weddings are all we shoot, so we know them inside out! We’ve loved every minute of it so far! Over 200 “I do’s” later, we’re now widely renowned as being one of the best husband and wife wedding photography teams in the UK. In recent years we’ve even been named as one of the top 5 wedding photographers in the country. How about that then!?

Our Story

We have been shooting weddings together since 2011. Neither of us ever planned to become wedding photographers- it’s just been one of life’s amazing happy accidents! During this time almost 200 couples have trusted us with the task of capturing their wedding day. As a result our photography work has been recognised both nationally and internationally. We have been fortunate to receive several awards for our photographs and our work is regularly featured in leading UK wedding magazines and in online publications.

Our style blends creative artistry and photojournalism. What this means is that our primary focus is capturing the true essence of your celebration without unnecessary interruption or intervention. We want you to spend as much time as possible enjoying yourselves, taking it all in and having the time of your lives. All the while we’ll be there on the sidelines dipping in and out, capturing moments that will ultimately tell the story of your day. Our wedding photography is natural, relaxed and most importantly cringe free.

As one of the leading husband and wife photography teams in the UK, with us you get two full time, professional photographers each with their own skill set and expertise. The result is seamless, complimentary coverage of your day with the assurance that no detail or moment will go overlooked.

Natural wedding photography // Relaxed & fuss free coverage

Our style is primarily photojournalistic. This means that we spend most of the day floating around unseen, dipping in and out of moments. The great thing about the way we work is that it means you’re free to enjoy your wedding from prep to party with minimal interruption. We allow proceedings to unfold naturally. We don’t do cheesy poses and theres no disappearing off for an hour for photos. For us, it’s all about capturing the fun filled, genuine moments as they happen with some creative stuff thrown in too.

Whether you’re planning a big barn wedding, an intimate elopement or your very own music festival wedding in tipis, we’ve got you covered! Our coverage remains relaxed, fuss free and totally informal throughout. If you’re looking for a creative, contemporary wedding photographer who does things a little differently, we’d love to hear from you and chat about your plans. We’re available for wedding commissions all over Essex, or wherever your heart desires! You can find more examples of our work in our wedding gallery or alternatively over on our blog.


“You two are fucking diamonds!”

Excuse the language but our photographs are incredible! We can’t believe how well you’ve captured the day! There aren’t enough superlatives in the world to throw your way! To say we are delighted is an understatement.


“I don’t think we could’ve picked any one better”

I cannot speak highly enough of these two. Their natural talent & technical knowledge is unquestionable. As well as being undeniably gifted when it comes to capturing memories, they’re kind, funny and passionate people too. I don’t think we could’ve picked any one better for our couples shoot. I’m forever in debt to them and their ability. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!


“Sam & Louise: the best friends we never had”

From the moment I first started e-mailing them I knew i’d found the right people for the job. They made us laugh and feel comfortable at every stage; their vision matched ours. They made us feel like old friends when e-mailing! We didn’t want them to leave our wedding;they didn’t want to leave. Just an amazing couple of people.


“I honestly, genuinely can’t praise Sam & Louise & their outstanding work enough!”

Throughout the whole process their communication was fantastic. When first speaking they were so warm & friendly. When arranging our engagement shoot they couldn’t have been anymore helpful. They made us feel calm & relaxed. We had a great time exploring ideas for our photos so when it came to the wedding we had such fun! Both our engagement & wedding pictures are AMAZING! Lovely couple, amazing talent!!


“Sam & Louise were amazing”

From the moment we first contacted them to after the wedding and receiving our photos, we could not have faulted their service. Their commitment to our wedding made us feel like our wedding was really important to them too. Great communication throughout the whole process. They made us feel so relaxed on the day and really blended in. No one even knew they were there! They then presented us with the most beautiful photos, better than we could have ever hoped for!


“Sam & Louise are a rare pair of gifted memory collectors”

From our first conversation online I was struck by their professionalism and vision. Their obvious photography talents as showcased on their stunning, contemporary website reassured me that we had found our perfect wedding photographers. Dreamy, high quality images and most importantly totally captured every couples story. Ours, was no exception. Even now we still cry happy tears looking at our day through their lenses. Magical! (Feedback for Essex wedding photographers Sam and Louise)


“Sam & Louise are fabulous”

From the beginning of the process they were friendly, supportive and professional. They reply to emails incredibly quickly and are always very reassuring. On our wedding day they were a calm presence and our guests commented on how discreet they were. Sam and Louise listened to everything we asked for and most importantly the photos are absolutely beautiful. They truly captured the day and the photos were returned so fast. We honestly can’t recommend them enough.


“An amazing, unique and personal account of our wedding day”

Sam & Louise were discreet and professional throughout our day and captured shots of every aspect beautifully. They have provided us with photos that tell the story of our day and we received so many compliments. The quality of the images is exceptional!


“It’s not just a job, it’s their passion”

They made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. They take the time to get to know you as a couple, and capture your relationship through the lens. It’s easy to see that for them it’s not just a job, it’s their passion and this reflects in the amazing photographs we now have of our wedding. Couldn’t of wished to find two lovelier people to make these memories possible for me and my husband.


“We couldn’t have asked for better photographers”

They were amazing from start to finish. From planning the day in the first place, to being happy to answer my millions of questions, to the actual day itself. They were friendly, professional, dedicated and the shots they captured are stunning. We are beyond delighted with the service they provided and can’t recommend them enough.

“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.
