A bit about Ben…
Ben never started out as a wedding photographer. After school, he packed his bags and headed off to uni to LCM with his sax, to study music. He gained his degree he toured all over the world in bands, taking in some amazing places. These include Scandinavia, Japan, The Azores, Indonesia, Europe, Kazakhstan and Russia.
After we got married in 2008, he picked up a camera and photography is now his main passion whilst still playing his sax during the wedding breakfast. Ben has a fantastic eye for design and he is incredibly determined. Most of his days are spent editing photos and planning the next crazy idea for a photoshoot and how to make it work!
He loves food, possibly more than anything! Also, our dogs, tattoos, Michelin starred food, cake (and lots of it!), white chocolate, Breaking Bad, scuba diving, skiing, music, saxophones, tequila and he hates brandy and whisky!! He also loves fun people, funky weddings, milky tea, Canon cameras and prime lenses, cooking and (I hope)…ME! Oh yeah, he thinks that Michael Jackson is still the undoubted king of pop.
And something about Hannah…
After getting my business degree at Loughborough University, I initially entered into the property industry. To this day I still have a bit of an obsession with houses. This has resulted in me project managing our own mini-grand designs build as we speak.
I am definitely the more organised one of the two of us! I do all the organising for our photography business and if you email us it will nearly always be me that replies. I’m there to make sure that Ben heads off in the right direction on the way to a wedding as he’s usually got his head in the clouds, thinking about the next set of photos! 🙂 While he’s out shooting weddings, I’m beavering away in the office. Usually working on photoshoot plans, designing wedding albums and keeping everything running smoothly.
I love Ben, our crazy dogs Scampi & Bella, food, great restaurants, walking, crumpets, crisps, watching a good box set, reading, a good cup of tea, bunches of flowers, occasionally a little tipple of dessert wine, homemade courgette carbonara and meeting lovely new people. Oh and I’d love to own a monster truck one day!

And a brief summary of us…
Hi, we’re Ben and Hannah and we have an awesome job – Fact. We’re wedding photographers!
Ben and I were married in 2008, we’ve spent our time since then building our business and starting our self-build project here in Doveridge.
We have two dogs at the moment, Scamp our Labradoodle and Bella our Newfiepoo (google it!). I’m sure the future includes more dogs and one day the dream is for a small holding with lots of rescue animals!
So, what else do you need to know…? Well we love weddings throughout the UK and all over the world and you’ll get extra bonus points from Ben if your wedding is close to an awesome scuba diving site 😉
We’re super relaxed and have a easy going approach to taking photos.
We know that most people hate having their picture taken (I know we do!) so we make it fun, not ‘posey’ and formal, whilst still aiming to give you something special that your friends and family aren’t going to be able to capture on the day. We’re always on hand to help keep things running smoothly so you can enjoy the day – let’s face it, that’s the important bit!! 🙂
But more importantly, we’d like to know more about you, so get in touch here!
