Award winning Wedding Photographer of the Year, he captures the personalities of everyone present so intuitively that you will barely notice his presence, yet the photographs will show that somehow he was everywhere, not missing a single treasured moment.
Award winning ‘Wedding Photographer of the Year’ Keith Appleby heads up our team of five unique talents. We all share one common goal – to provide our clients with images that will truly exceed their expectations. We capture the personalities of everyone present so intuitively that you will barely notice our presence, yet the photographs will show that somehow we were everywhere, not missing a single treasured moment. A former advertising and fashion photographer, Keith and his team merge all these disciplines together and manage to pull off the impossible… to provide their clients with a perfect mix of images from their day.
Unobtrusive, discreet and relaxed. We understand that you want a great set of photos from your day with a minimum of interference. We shoot in a documentary and reportage style without forgetting that some fuss-free family group shots are an important element, too.
Our style is relaxed and spontaneous and whatever atmosphere you seek at your wedding we will capture. We do not have a ‘one formula fits all’ approach and we treat every wedding as the unique occasion that it is. We will take as many photographs as there are opportunities – some candid, some classic. We work calmly, quickly and unobtrusively ensuring that your day remains exactly that – yours! We love taking pictures of people having fun and believe that our enthusiasm and sense of humour comes across in our pictures. We aim to fit in as a ‘guest’ with a camera rather than an outsider.
Digitally. There is a myth that somehow film is ‘better’ or more ‘artistic’. This is a complete misconception often used by some photographers to promote their ‘artistic’ abilities. Whether a photograph is artistic or not depends on the eye and skill of the photographer and not whether the image was captured on film or digital. Believe it or not those photographers who shoot on film actually convert the final images back to digital, which seems to defeat the purpose.
We use professional Canon & Nikon 35mm full frame DSLR cameras.
We shoot in colour and convert a percentage into Black & White.
Engagement shoots are available as an extra.
We advise couples to take a package with one of our bespoke designed storybook albums as it will be a magnificent keepsake and last for generations. Sadly there is a trend today for couples to forgo the album and choose a package with just the high-res digital files as their primary keepsake. We believe that this is short-term thinking and not the best way to preserve those treasured memories. Our Wedding Storybooks are simply the most elegant, stylish and durable keepsakes available anywhere and will become a timeless expression of your love.
The images are available in our secure online client area usually within 10 days of the wedding. A hardback preview book with all the images from your day will follow soon after. How far in advance should couples book you? The earlier the better!
Each couple who book us will complete our basic booking form which includes all the information we require.
I like the soft and whimsical look of off-the-shoulder wedding dresses. Whilst you may want to cover your shoulders at a formal ceremony this can be presented in a classical way that adds a nice twist away from the stiff and starchy meringue style of bridal dress.
The use of Drones to capture aerial shots. Currently this is primarily used by videographers at weddings, but I expect this to become more common as an ‘added extra’ for still photographs too.
Initially from a website and/or recommendation from a friend or wedding planner or venue manager. Thereafter you should ‘feel’ something when you look at the photographs. If they touch an emotion in you then you’re on the right track. Try and meet your photographer beforehand to check that there is a connection and that he or she will fit in with your plans for the day.
