Can't recommend these photographers enough. They captured our day so beautifully, were so helpful in the run up and and enhanced our day by taking us a on a quick hike to Winnat's pass.

Nikki & Ian

The best day captured perfectly.
I cannot recommend Oliver and Lauren enough.
For a couple that really dislikes the camera, we absolutely love our gallery.
Thank you both, so much 📸

Maria & Marek

Oliver and Lauren are fantastic, they become part of the family. Their communication is spot on, making sure you get what you want out of the day and ready for it all. Great Jamie Dodger discount 😉. They capture the most beautiful shots, thing you just don't see. I am so pleased they did our lockdown wedding and can't wait to see what out 2022 blessing will hold. Thank you both for part 1, cant wait for part 2!!!

Straight away we knew Oliver was the photographer for us! He made us feel relaxed from the initial meeting and was a calming influencer on the day of our Wedding, especially when we were all getting ready in the morning! He made sure to capture the perfect shots and got some amazing photos of me and my husband who absolutely hates the camera! We are delighted with our photos and would recommend him to any couples booking their wedding! Thank you again! X

The energy and charismatic attitude these pair offered and held the entire day was beyond words. ❤ I honestly believe you won't find a better photographer than Oliver!
