African wedding photography & films - it's all about the atmosphere...

To truly capture an African wedding it can't just be a pretty picture, it has to have soul.
The couples we work with know that the memories of a wedding can't be summed up by smiling sweetly to the camera. Memories are not just seen, they are felt, and it's that feeling that guides our African wedding photography & films. The greatest memories of your wedding are not always ceremonial, they're not always planned or predictable. To us the greatest moments happen when you least expect them - funny, heartwarming and brimming with personality. That's why we work moment to moment, embracing the spontaneity and using our vast experience to make sure, whether shooting photographs or films (or both) we're always in the right place at the right time. Nothing posed, nothing staged, just real, powerfully unpredictable moments captured with a creative eye.

Capturing the warmth, beauty and fun of the occasion.

African weddings are some of the liveliest events we've ever been so lucky as to be a part of. They mix a fun, vibrant party atmosphere and celebrations with truly heartfelt, touching and emotional ceremonies, making them some of our favourite weddings to photograph and film. African weddings bring together a community, and we love to capture not just what the bride and groom got up to but all of the guests. When you look through your album or watch your wedding films we want you to feel the love in the room, to be taken back to that place and remember the greatest celebration of your lives. Every film we make and photograph we take is unique to the couple in front of us. We never try to recreate what we've done before, we want to truly immerse ourselves in the day and capture the feel and personality of your wedding. Even with 20 years experience behind us we've never photographed a wedding like yours before and we never will again.
