Hello! We are James & Kerrie, husband & wife wedding photographers who are the best of friends. We have been together over 12 years after a simple click on a Dating website (yes Kerrie ‘liked’ James first!) led to our first date back in 2006. James moved to London four months later and we have been inseparable since. We have been photographing beautiful weddings together for almost five years now and feel beyond lucky to get to work together doing our dream jobs. Our journey in wedding photography started after a holiday to Turkey in 2012 where James fell back in love with taking photos. James has always owned a camera but really wanted to take it to the next level. He was asked by friends to photograph their wedding in Italy in 2013, he asked Kerrie to second shoot for him….and the rest is history! Finding the perfect wedding photographer can be a daunting experience, we have been through this exact experience ourselves. We are passionate about helping couples to find the right wedding photographer for them through our fortnightly blogs to our monthly Facebook lives, (we’d love for you to join us!) where we are on hand for tips & advice to help you along the way to help you plan your perfect wedding day.

We have recently relocated to Somerset as we have fallen in love with those South West wedding venues!! James is originally from Somerset and we have both been dying to move to the South West for a few years, we absolutely love photographing weddings in the Countryside! From Devon weddings to Somerset weddings, the rolling hills and open space, it’s where we really come alive. Being a wedding photographer in Somerset really is a dream come true. Not to mention all those lovely farmers markets & coastlines we can visit, Kerrie really wants to have a go at paddle boarding so any recommendations on locations much appreciated! When he’s not behind the camera, James loves to cook. He starts planning what to cook for our evening meal as soon as he wakes up! You’ll find Kerrie either on Social Media swooning over the latest wedding trends (she’s obsessed!) or relaxing in a corner listening to a podcast with a lovely scented candle burning.  We love to go on adventures together, and try to visit our favourite Greek island Corfu whenever we can. We have found our little slice of Heaven in the North of the Island, maybe we will tell you where over a cappuccino or two.

We love to photograph pretty detailed oriented weddings, with lots of pastels and tons of florals & foliage (you can never have too much foliage!). Our style of photography is a mix of documentary and lifestyle. We photograph in a very natural, relaxed way that lets you be you and enjoy the moments instead of any awkward posing. We curate parts of your wedding day, to move you into beautiful light, or ask you to walk hand in hand across a beautiful field, or simply guide you into a natural pose so we can create some beautiful couple portraits for you. Being a wedding photographer in Somerset and the South West is a dream come true for us! Every wedding is unique and we love hearing all about our couples plans & dreams for your big day, we feel so lucky to be a part of such a special day in your lives.

We post regular videos on our social media to give you a ton of tips and expert advice, from helping you to feel comfortable in front of the camera to what family photos you need to get so come and join the team! 

We can’t wait to hear all about your day!
