– Relaxed and Natural Lincolnshire wedding photographers –

Hi, we’re Sam & Louise!

We’re Lincolnshire wedding photographers and we’re also married….to each other! We specialise in relaxed, natural wedding photography that’s both fun and creative. Our documentary style and photojournalistic approach is unobtrusive and formality free! At the heart of what we do we’re story tellers, eager to capture every exciting moment. From belly laughs to bouquet tosses, first kisses to first dances. We want to be there to document it all! We love working with like minded love birds who prefer a more candid approach. No stuffy poses or fake smiles- promise! Laid back couples seeking timeless wedding photographs that are anything but traditional are what we’re all about.

If that sounds like what you’re after, you can read more about our approach to photographing weddings for additional peace of mind. You can also get to know us behind the camera too. Hopefully we’ll be a great fit for your day! We’d love to chat some more about your plans, so get in touch and let’s chat weddings.

Our Credentials: Where it all began

We photographed our first wedding together way back in 2011. It feels like yesterday, but somehow we’re now 8 years down the line and wondering how our little pipe dream ever became something more. At the time we were pretty much fresh out of university and a little fearless. The kind of fearless that comes with having no mortgage, bills and no real responsibilities! We wanted to give weddings a try but we hated the the awkwardness and forced formality that traditional wedding coverage seemed to offer. Convinced there was an alternative, we decided to give “our way” a go.

We’ve now been trusted by almost 300 couples to capture their wedding celebrations. It’s an adventure that we’re so thankful to have been on together. Over the years we’ve been commissioned to shoot weddings all over the UK and overseas. We’ve also picked up several awards along the way! You’ll see a small collection of our blog and magazine features as well as our industry awards to your right. 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!? 

Who knew relaxed, fuss free wedding coverage and booking yourselves two new best mates for the day would become so popular? However, blowing our own trumpet is definitely not our strong point. As such, we’d recommend getting to know us behind the camera, a little better instead. You can follow us on Insta for behind the scenes fun and an occasional witty caption.

What’s so special about Lincolnshire wedding photographers Sam & Louise?

We all know someone with a fancy camera. In truth, almost anyone can take a half decent photo these days. But let’s be real for a moment. Whilst cameras and photography courses are more affordable than ever, there are some things money can’t buy. Money can’t buy experience or expertise. It can’t buy creativity, initiative or skill.

If you want something more than a few basic photographs you’ll need experienced story tellers who can anticipate moments building. You’ll need someone who knows 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 photographs that truly tell a story; pictures 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- by then it’s already too late. You need someone who creates opportunities where others see obstacles. That’s key. That’s us.

We’re fortunate to receive upwards of 350 wedding enquiries each year. Sadly we can’t shoot them all! Generally speaking, we accept anything from 25-35 weddings per season. How many weddings we accept ultimately depends on the location, our availability and whether we feel we’ll be a good fit for your day. Capping how many weddings we shoot ensures there is enough time and flexibility in our schedule to dedicate to the awesome couples who choose us to be part of their story. As a result, we’re able to offer service that’s second to none! If you love what we do, we’ll always try to make things work for you so please do not hesitate to get in touch if we can be of assistance.

“You two are fucking diamonds!”

Excuse the language but our wedding photographs are absolutely incredible! We cannot believe just how well you’ve captured our 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 have 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.


“Sam and Louise – chicken legends!”

In retrospect calling a vegan wedding photographer a chicken legend isn’t the best start to a review but bloody hell they are good. Being a typical groom I wasn’t as interested in all the fussy stuff  as my fiancé would have liked. So when Tash suggested we up our budget for Sam and Louise I wasn’t having it. I was adamant that we just use the same fella my cousin had and leave it at that. A photographers a photographer I said but she went and booked them anyway. I was dreading having photos taken especially having someone with me and the boys whilst we were trying to get ready. I thought i’d be standing there like a tit shaking peoples hands and gormlessly looking into a camera but Sam and Louise left us to it. We didn’t even know they were there half the time and when we did have to go off for pictures together it was actually a relief. I hate to admit it but Tash was right. I didn’t want to put my hand in my pocket originally but in retrospect I can see what we were paying more for. You pay peanuts and you get monkeys. What we got with Sam and Louise is a million miles from what I thought we were booking. Our photos are more than I ever thought they could be. They are of all of our favourite people having a laugh not just posed cheesy smiles. I don’t know how they did it but they seemed to be bloody everywhere and I know how much Louise helped Tash in the morning as well.  You will never regret booking these two.


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

Throughout the whole process their communication was fantastic. When first speaking to them 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 are 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 Lincolnshire 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 so so 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 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. We couldn’t of wished to find two lovelier people to make these memories possible for me and my husband.


“We love them”

We love love love our wedding photographs. So many of our friends have used Sam & Louise that I was worried we might end up with similar photos. I know that sounds silly but it was a genuine concern especially because our venue was quite similar to one of my bridesmaids. The reviews from friends all spoke for themselves though and I couldn’t find anyone who’s photos I loved as much. We have been blown away and I don’t think we could have ever asked for more from them. They arrived earlier than we expected and stayed later than we thought for example. Our photos reflect our day 110% and I feel silly for ever worrying. Sam & Louise have been a blessing throughout from emergency last minute recommendations when my MUA let me down to being calm and collected on the day when things weren’t going to plan with timings. The photos are exceptional in every way. Book them and book them now! It will be the BEST thing you do for your wedding.


“We couldn’t have asked for better photographers or better photographs”

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. (Feedback for Lincolnshire wedding photographers Sam and Louise)


“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)
