Helen & Nick
We're not just a team at work but a married couple, so we know the stresses of planning a wedding, and we also have the disagreements that go along with planning the big day. :)
Our background has always been in the creative industry, so we both see photographic opportunities from all angles. We like to be as unobtrusive as possible. This is your big day, so we don't like to take you away from your guests for too long. We like to capture those moments that not everyone gets to see and those moments that you want to treasure for a lifetime together.
We love hearing from past, present and future couples, so do get in touch. And we'll look forward to catching up over a brew!
(no sugar, just milk)

The definition of a dream team! From start to finish both Helen and Nick were nothing but pure joy and laughter whilst remaining professional at all times and totally wowing us! On our wedding day they provided both of us with an amazing and easy flowing experience which we were so grateful for and were also amazing with our guests of all ages, aswell as providing us with some words of wisdom! I would recommend Helen and Nick to anybody and already have a few times! We are both so thankful to have so many stunning photos to remind us of our day!

Professional, experienced, and friendly Photographer

It was an absolute pleasure to have Helen as our photographer for our Wedding in Keele Hall. She was amazing and her easy going and approachable attitude made it stress free, which is exactly what you need on your big day! The pictures from our day are fabulous and capture how incredible it was - we wish we could do it all again! Thank you Helen xx

Kate & Chris

We used Helen and Nick for our wedding and cannot recommend them enough. Neither me or my husband are keen on having our photos taken. Helen took the time before our big day to get to know us and make us feel at ease whilst understanding from us what kind of photos we wanted. Your photographers are such a big part of your day we were extremely pleased with the service we received and the photos we have.

I have since revisited Helen to have some photos taken with our daughter.

Highly recommended

Helen and Nick were both amazing capturing our memorable wedding day. They both got different angles of the day which were brilliant seeing them. They both made us feel relaxed on each photo, and even edited some photos of our children has they had ice cream on their clothing. And the price is great too.

Look no further!

Helen and Nick are simply amazing!
If you want someone you can trust, someone professional but also someone you feel completely at ease with then look no further.
We felt comfortable throughout the whole day and enjoyed every minute and that is down to Helen and Nick.
We were that impressed that we have since used Helen for our baby photoshoots and family photoshoots.

You are honestly such an amazing pair and we will be forever grateful for our gorgeous pictures.

I鈥檓 always recommending Helen and Nick - honestly, look no further!

Our wedding - August 2019

We were recommended Helen when looking for a photographer for our wedding. From the initial consultation, Helen was professional, friendly and understanding. She took on board everything we said about what we wanted our wedding photos to be, and they turned out exactly as we imagined.

On the day, both Helen and Nick were amazing. They captured every moment and without any fuss or disturbance of the day. Helen even helped to button up my wedding dress when nerves were getting the better of the bridal party. All the small details really contributed to us having such a fantastic day.

We received preview pictures whilst on honeymoon and this made us really excited to receive our photos. When we did, we were blown away by the images and memories that Helen and Nick had created for us. The slide show was paired with music from our wedding day, a beautiful touch.

We couldn鈥檛 have asked for better from our wedding photographers and would recommend Helen to anyone getting married.

Super professional service through a personal lens

From the moment I met Helen and Nick I knew I had made the right choice for photographers for my wedding. The service they offered was bespoke to my needs and the results were breathtaking.
Both Helen and Nick captured elements and moments of our wedding that we would never have seen nor imagined were possible.
Helen listened to everything we wanted and delivered so much more!
Please don鈥檛 hesitate to book them - you won鈥檛 be disappointed.

Amazing Photographers!

Helen & Nick photographed our wedding at Keele Hall in the summer and were absolutely amazing. They were hugely supportive throughout the planning process and even did an engagement shoot in advance which was a wonderful chance to get comfortable with being photographed professionally.

They are both so friendly and talented, they helped us pick the style that suited us and guided us when we were unsure. The photo's came out fantastic and so professional they didn't miss a thing even things we didn't get to see. All our guests who have seen the photos were blown away and we also loved our slideshow they put together with key songs from the wedding day - such a thoughtful touch!

You won't regret booking Helen and Nick - thank you again for everything!
