Hello there!

We're Al and Phil - a team of two professional wedding photographers based out of Leicestershire with the aim of melting into the background of your big day to capture beautiful, natural moments for you to treasure.


​Photography is our passion. We love to create images of laughter, celebration, romance and the odd moment of mischief. Add in the beauty of hand developed film photography, for another level of timelessness to the photographic memories of your day. But, it's not just about photographs. We work with you from the outset to ensure your wedding is as fun and relaxed as can be - it's a personal service! After all, we're practically honorary guests at your wedding!


Leicestershire is our home, in the heart of the Midlands, but that doesn't stop us from venturing across the country or escaping with you and your loved ones to far-flung lands - we are big fans of adventures, elopements and destination weddings. 


What’s more, we believe it’s our responsibility to ensure our impact on the environment is as low as possible, so you can rest easy knowing that we’ve done our bit whilst planning for, and capturing, your big day (find out more)


Welcome to our website - grab a cuppa and have a browse - we hope you like it.

Documentary Wedding Photography in Leicestershire and Beyond

Craftsmanship with a Camera, Created with Character

“The photos are absolutely beautiful, we love them and can't thank you enough! I love the fact that I can see ones of Leigh when he's getting ready too. You captured the moments great!

- Kirsty and Leigh Laffar

So, who are we?


We thought that this would be a good time to let you know a little bit more about us, but we aren't going to waffle! Here are some all important quick-fire facts:


Al is a champion of analogue photography and vintage cameras. His prized possession is a 1960's Hasselblad similar to that which went to the moon. When not out with his camera, you'll usually 

him in search of artisanal food or enjoying his vinyl collection.


Phil doesn't sit still. In the words of his Grandma, he has a "round bottom"! He's happiest when out and about exploring with family and friends - with his camera of course. That's when not rock climbing, surfing, playing hockey or finding top nosh to eat.


If you'd like to discover more about us and whether we're your cup of tea, click the link below. If you do, you'll also get to see what's behind that camera that Phil is holding...spoiler alert - it's his face.
