We are a couple who share a passion for mid-century design and style.Our approach to photography is discreet and derives from our passion of early documentary giants such as Cartier Bresson, viewing life as a series of fleeting moments to be recorded forever.We can work as you wish; disappearing into the background to photograph the day in a reportage style, or working with Jeni to co-ordinate yourself and your guests into your pre-arranged poses and moments. Jeni is on hand has a second shooter to capture the smaller details of the day. Our Approach:
Documentary style, capturing natural moments. Inspired by early 20th century photojournalism. Passionate about capturing the human spirit combined with being drawn towards quirky moments, and aspiring to frame images with an abstract approach. Always striving to make each wedding different by shooting it with fresh eyes, and steering away from the cliches of wedding photography. Discreet approach in a photojournalistic manner, not trying to force moments but waiting for the moment to happen.
Things we love:
Connecting with people and being on the journey with them. Creating powerful and long lasting memories that are real and over time will become more and more powerful as a lasting tangible window into that day.
Meet or at least chat on the phone with your Photographer and see if you get along well. It really helps if you feel comfortable talking and get along. Think about what style of Photography you want. Black & white or film or just straightforward? Reportage or posed? Do you want your Photography to be in the background or the foreground of the day? You might want a mixture and this is often the case so sitting down and having a chat about what you want is very helpful. How much time do you want to dedicate to couple shots and group shots? Do you want to prioritise time with your family and loved ones over too much time with the photographer or do you want more involved photography.
We travel worldwide. We charge for travel expenses and overnight stay based on rates of the journey. UK travel is 45 p per mile outside of London and £60 overnight stay
"Soon after we got engaged, we quickly found ourselves facing a mountain of choices that few soon-to-be-married couple are ever prepared for: guest-lists, locations, dates, menus, music, florists, etc... and where to begin?! We were pleasantly surprised that there was one choice we had no problem making right from the start, even though it seemed somewhat crazy. We wanted Hanson as our photographer and since we live in California, proposed to fly him and Jeni out for the job. We knew that Hanson's discerning, artful eye and unique vintage sensibilities (and equipment!) combined with his talented assistant Jeni's effortless ability to manage groups of people with charm and ease, was just the combination that our wedding needed and no one else would suffice. The stars aligned in such a way that our “crazy” idea turned out to be a definite and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Hanson and Jeni were more than just photographers at our wedding, they were part of the magic that made that entire weekend special and we'll always remember them fondly for it. Thank you Hanson Leatherby Weddings!"
"Hanson was wonderful from our initial contact and first meeting through to our wedding day. He was professional, friendly, and calm, and the photographs of our wedding day are absolutely perfect. In the run-up to the wedding, Hanson was very helpful, listening to what we had in mind for the day and responding quickly to any queries. On the day itself, he was simply brilliant - putting everyone at ease for the group shots and unobtrusively capturing beautiful, natural images before, during, and after the wedding ceremony. His photographs perfectly show the joy and happiness of our day. We couldn’t be happier with Hanson’s work and we’re so glad that he was our wedding photographer."
