About One Thousand Words Photography

Hello, we are Tom Wishart & Murray Lambert. We came to work together through a love of creativity and a shared passion for providing stunning, evocative wedding photography that is a notch above the ‘norm’.

We believe that a good wedding photograph is not only a moment captured forever…it should convey the beauty, emotion, the drama and the detail. Our instinctive, unobtrusive approach allows us to observe these moments as they are about to happen and capture them as they unfold.

Our ‘style’ is actually a blend of styles; landscape, portrait, event, documentary, still-life, HDR and experimental photography. We are known not only for our unique, creative style but also for our personal customer service.

Through correspondance, meetings and engagement shoost we like to build a friendly relationship with you before your wedding, helping you to relax in front of the camera and feel comfortable with us being around on your big day. As we are lovely people to boot this isn’t a problem!

We love our job, we love working together and we love take stunning photographs at weddings, making brides look as fabulous they feel.

We are based in Dorset and Hampshire and regularly photograph weddings all over the UK.

    Best photographers imaginable!

    Tom & Murray were amazing.  From the moment we met them, they were cheerful and helped us to feel at ease.  On top of that, always went above and beyond and left us with lovely photos to remember the day.

    On the day, they were perfect and captured all the photos we were looking for, and a load we didn't even know we wanted!  The photos are AMAZING, and we can't thank them enough for the wonderful memories.  

    We would definitely recommend these guys to anyone looking for a lovely team of photographers for your wedding day.  The way they work together is brilliant and the results are awesome (and they're a good laugh!).  I also can't recommend enough, the benefit of having two photographers who work so well together - they don't miss anything!

    In summary, these guys work brilliantly together, nothing is too big an ask and the photos are perfect.

    Best photographers ever

    As soon as we got engaged, we knew that we wanted one thousand words as our photographers. They offer something so different and special that others don’t- first off all they make you feel so at ease on your wedding day that you don’t have time to feel nervous, secondly they’re very handy extra bridesmaids :) Tom and Murray were so kind and fun to work with and we can’t rate them enough, having two of them meant that you had pictures from different angles. Tom and Murray were considerate to us when we needed time to ourselves and whisked us away to the beach for an hour to have some time to ourselves and reflect on our day. They slotted into everything so well, especially when they arrived at my parents house and began photographing us. I seriously can’t recommend them enough, they were one of the best bits of our wedding day and our photos were just incredible. You guys really are amazing and daaam’ they can work a camera and find a good angle- especially if you’re not a fan of photos yourselves!
