Two is greater than one…
As a couple ourselves we aim to help make your “Big Day” as happy relaxed and special as it should be. It’s what we wanted for ourselves, and we want to help create the same for you!
We have dedicated our careers to full-time wedding photography, and are professionally qualified, insured, and highly experienced in our field, with over eleven great years of photographing weddings right across London, the Home Counties and Europe.
We love working with people and believe that shows through all that we produce. Our enthusiasm never dims, in fact it has grown over time. Wedding photography is a passion for us, and we are well known for giving 100%. So…
If you want the story of your day captured with artistry in a contemporary, natural and spontaneous style – no problem
Or you feel you’d like some truly striking shots that look as if they’ve come straight from a quality wedding or fashion magazine, without you having to train as a model – no problem!
Perhaps you’d like a mix of these, or a more traditional approach, once again – no problem. You dictate, and we create.
And of course we’re sure you will want lots of great shots of your guests, magic moments, and all the little details that make the big day so unique, again – no problem!
It’s “no problem” because we bring our creativity and personalities to any and all of these approaches, and after all, we know absolutely that it is YOUR day first and foremost, and we want you to be delighted!
Perhaps those are some one of the reasons we are “Time Out” recommended Wedding Photographers. We are also trusted to regularly work with well known brand sensitive clients such as Ralph Lauren, De Beers Diamond Merchants, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
In early April, with a few months to go before our wedding, my now-wife and I burnt the midnight oil searching for the perfect photographers. Some time around 1am on a Saturday night, we had our 'Eureka' moment. Coming across David and Joanna, we knew they were 'the one'.
Shortly thereafter, we met David. He's a warm, professional, lovely guy, who put us at ease immediately. In the run-up to the big day, he answered all our silly questions with great patience, and even went up to our church and wedding location, to get a sense of the light and shade, etc.
On the day itself, Joanna and David were brilliant. Discreet during the service, but taking every shot you could wish for (in colour and sometimes in black and white). After the service, they managed to corral our family and friends for great group photos (no easy task!) and then led the wife and I off to our more personal couple shots.
Being introverted by nature, Lucy and I don't find it that easy to let people into our personal life - so it is with considerable respect that I can say we felt completely at ease with David and Joanna photographing us in a romantic location near our church. We saw all the final photos last week and nearly wept with joy over these photos in particular.
Thank you, David and Joanna. You are brilliant.
With absolute sincerity to anyone reading this review, look no further. You have found the photographers you need. Lucy & PeterWe say - "Look no further"
So if you need high standards of quality, creativity and personable service, then come and meet some like minded people.
Whatever kind of coverage you’re looking for, whatever style you value – Be 100% confident for such an important day.
We wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Amazing Wedding Photographers!”
After trawling through dozens of photographers for our wedding, we chose David and Joanna and were not disappointed. We were attracted by their style and the bonus of having two photographers to ensure all angles were covered. We booked David and Joanna immediately after our first phone call enquiry – there was no need to keep looking. David’s humour as well as knowledge and professionalism made us feel at ease. We felt that David’s relaxed and humorous personality suited our personalities and that of our family and friends. We wanted a relaxed, family atmosphere and felt David and Joanna would suit that perfectly. We had an amazing engagement shoot at Alexander Palace. David gave us valuable tips for taking the perfect shot which we used on our wedding day. The photos were beautiful! Communication with David and Joanna was excellent. We had a call with David before the wedding to discuss all details of the day including the schedule and any specific shots we wanted. David brought up things about the day that we hadn’t even considered which helped us to make sure our day ran smoothly (we’ve never planned a wedding before so it was great to get insight from someone who has been to so many!). On the wedding day, David and Joanna didn’t disappoint. They were professional, timely and brought their humour and friendly personalities. When appropriate e.g. during the service, David and Joanna were discreet and nonintrusive. When needed, David and Joanna did a great job of rounding up family and directing group shots. We’ve seen some preview shots and are they are beautiful! We can’t wait to see the others. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend David and Joanna! Thank you for helping to make our day special and to run smoothly!

“Exceptional photographers – look no further”
David and Joanna are not only two very thoughtful and lovely people, but they are exceptionally talented photographers. My wife and I are extremely pleased that we opted for Big Day Weddings, after an exhaustive search for the perfect photographers. Being an admittedly fussy person when it comes to anything like art and photography I can honestly say I was blown away by the photos they took. They even managed to get a photo of my uncle smiling! That is praise indeed. My wife and I will always treasure the photos they took – the beautifully composed ones of us taken after the ceremony, the black and white ones they took in the service (as well as colour), and the family and friend group shots. We could not be more pleased. Look no further.

Dear David & Joanna
From the start David and Joanna were absolutely brilliant. We arranged an engagement shoot to meet David and try to shake off some of our pre-wedding photoshoot jitters… we honestly couldn’t have felt more comfortable on both the engagement shoot and our wedding day. David and Joanna really went out of their way to support and advise us and helped us relax into the experience. We have so many beautiful shots – we really are spoilt for choice! I was so nervous about the pictures but they are just stunning. David and Joanna capture both posed and natural shots between them which makes for a gorgeous collection to remember your special day. I have, and will continue to, recommend them to family and friends as they just seem to have the golden touch!! We have had so so many compliments on our photos and to make it all even better David sent them over to us really quickly. Flawless! To David and Joanna: We’re so lucky to have found you and I know many more brides and grooms will continue to benefit from your talent and passion!!! Thanks so so much for everything x

“Great and fun photographers!”
Where do we start? Thank you so so much! You’ve captured our day beautifully! Going through the photos have helped us re-live it all over again! Every single photo is shot to perfection, great angles and extremely clear with great colour! We loved all the special effects and filters you’ve put on too, especially the one with Kym “showering” herself! 🙂 You have captured all the special moments, especially the ones that went very quickly – such as our dip towards the end of the first dance (as we couldn’t hold that position for long! 🙂 We absolutely loved working with you both, you’ve made us feel at ease behind the camera, right from the moment we did our engagement shot. It really helped us relax during the day. David you have a great way with making people laugh and have fun! We had many comments from our guests on what “cool” and “fun” photographers we had at our wedding. It was great to see everyone else was having a great time with us too. Thank you again! We’ve already recommended you on to a couple that are looking for great photographers at their wedding!
