Get to know us

Husband and wife photographers, parents and born storytellers.

Christina was born into a family of creatives.  As she grew her mother nurtured her to help discover and bring out the best of her creativity.  As a teenager she would draw or paint everyone and everything that stood still long enough, and carried a sketchbook with her where ever she went.  She was given her first camera at the age of 8 and her first SLR at the age of 16.  She fell in love with film photography, the darkroom and the beautiful gift to be able to freeze time, to capture a moment and to be able to return to that memory whenever she chose.

Nigel’s passion for photography was born from his love of world travel and exploration.  At 22 years old, with just a bag on his back and a passport in his pocket he left the uk with a mission of self discovery, keeping a journal of his thoughts and taking photographs to preserve his memories.  Those images, the process of seeing the moment and then preserving it for the future had an astounding effect on the person that he was developing into.

We found our art and our passion for our craft living separate lives and our desire to learn more brought us together.  We met at Sunderland University thirteen years ago and became inseparable, kindred spirits.  We were married almost ten years ago and are parents to two wonderful children, Charlie and Emilia.

We are a family, we live, we love and we laugh together.   As parents we watch our young ones grow, developing every day and our love for our children inspires us to take better photographs.  They have taught us to look not with our eyes but with our hearts.  The passing of time has helped us realise and understand the inherent value and the enormous power of the photographs that we take.  To stop time, to preserve the memory, to capture their life stories and the ability to return to those moments when ever we wish.

We began photographing weddings together shortly after becoming a couple.  We were drawn to the beautiful occasion that brings families together and allows us to bare witness to a display of open emotion, unity among loved ones and rare moments of intimacy, we follow our instincts and our hearts to tell their story.  The ability to share these experiences with others is priceless.  It is an incredible honour to be present and part of such a significant moment of these two individual’s lives.

Over the past 10 years we have had the extreme honour of photographing weddings for couples from all over the uk and beyond.  Each and every one reminds us of the wonderful gift that we have been given.
