We are so pleased that you have found us and are honoured that you are considering us to document your wedding. We are Oxford based, UK and destination photographers and enjoy creating beautiful heirlooms to cherish forever and feel privileged to meet and have fun with so many lovely coupes along the way.

We have worked together for many years, have a shared vision and influence and inspire each other. You can book either of us or both of us to document your wedding or celebration. Our style is glamorous elegant reportage and we see ourselves as mirrors of the day, reflecting your vision and personality. Photographing you should be effortless whether you are completely camera shy or are happy in front of the camera. We believe that you don’t have to turn your day into a photo-shoot to produce beautiful pictures and you can leave it to us to bring out the best in you.

We would love you to get in touch and hear about your plans for your day. whether you are holding a simple celebration or grand occasion.

BIOGRAPHY

Susie and Harley have a background in press (photo-journalism NUJ)  and Fine Art and have worked discreetly and privately for a number of clients in the private eye.  Over the years they have photographed the Queen and British Royalty, World and UK politicians including prime ministers Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair and David Cameron. As advertising and commercial photographers, they have also worked for  numerous global companies, design agencies and interior clients (they adore photographing people and architecture). Their work has taken them round the world for notable client Bloomberg TV, has seen them photographing on the catwalk at London fashion week and photographing major projects for British Aerospace (BAE systems). Recently their still images from the promo shoot for the new Kiefer Sutherland series ’24’ set in London were used for the world advertising campaign. Their images were seen on billboards globally from LA,  downtown Dallas, New York to Paris and London.

From rockstars to palaces, private island to the pub down the road they have been photographing weddings for over 20 years. Becoming wedding photographers was a very happy accident and there has been no looking back. Their wedding imagery has been extensively published. Susie and Harley are the only UK wedding photographers to have had their own brand range of greetings cards on the high street, Barker Evans (with leading card company Woodmansterne). They were original founders and creators of the Wedding Bible brand with globally renowned wedding designer Sarah Haywood (see Published) which has received critical acclaim over the years. Whilst they parted after the initial publication of the Wedding Bible and Planner to pursue different ventures they recently curated and created the imagery for the new Wedding Bible Planner. They also contributed images to the new 2015 re-designed and updated edition of the the flagship Wedding Bible Book.

Currently they are working on a couple of major personal projects due to be published in 2017/18.
