Lina and Tom Wedding and Film Photography Logo

We’re wedding photographers who love moments
big or small

From the morning preparations for both of you to throwing shapes on the dancefloor – we’re true wedding photographers who will capture the real and complete moments of your day and night.

It’s always been that way since the very beginning for us, who first said that a wedding coverage could end at the first dance? Who decided what came after, all those utterly joyful moments away from the formalities, wasn’t worth capturing?

 

We shoot how it feels, as well how it looks

Every single wedding we photograph is totally unique because of the awesome clients who choose us and their own individuality.

We welcome all orientations, ethnicities and religions, what matters to us is that you let us in to experience your love and beautiful moments. 

You plan to only do this once, right?

So we know what a big deal it is that you put your faith in us as your wedding photographer.

You trust us to understand you; trust that we’ll capture amazing moments, trust we’ll edit and store your images properly and trust that we’ll be safeguarding your amazing memories for decades to come.

We’re honoured that many wedding planners and events professionals trust us with their exclusive clients too.

Trust

Joy

This trust is key for us in allowing your personality to shine through by capturing natural moments – and that’s so important, whether it’s for couple portraits or grandma in the corner swigging her champagne.

The joy in our work is bringing out those family traits and quirks – something you’ll immediately recognise in the photos, yet we’re not trying too hard to be funny or shoehorn in gimmicks.

 

Our approach is true to you and the moment.

Film Photography

Tom started in film in his early teens, shaping his technical skills and still has a passion for it. He’ll bring along his original film Canon AE-1 film camera and shoot 2 rolls of black and white film during the day to add to your digital wedding photography, provided as digital files in your gallery, allowing a different perspective embracing the nostalgia of film.

FAQ

Such is the strength of our partnership, we do not offer one of us for a wedding. Even the couples who have booked us as elopement photographers will tell you the power of two! And plenty of solo photographers will say one is all you need, but in reality, you get much more coverage of all those moments you’d miss with just one and without having someone running around the place.

However if you are having an intimate wedding of 30 guests or less, it is possible to book us as a photo and video team. Let us know if you are interested in this option on enquiry.

If you are planning a proposal or require something like branding photography, it’s possible to book just one of us (although for proposals we do still recommend two for the angles!)

This is an issue which many British photographers will be ignoring but it’s not an issue for us as we’re European nationals.

We understand the value in your wedding photographer covering all your pre wedding and post wedding events for consistency, so we offer a date holding fee for weddings that are going through the booking process, which then become part of the event fee.

We believe in quality not quantity and there are many factors such as size and location, whether it is single or multi day which can make a difference in the final numbers. We tend to shoot in excess of 15,000 images between us on a single day, which usually results in circa 8-10% being delivered as finals. We experiment throughout the day so we delete duplicates, things that didn’t work out or if we’ve caught you in a less than flattering angle. It’s fairly typical of us to deliver around 100 shots per hour of shooting, but again it’s more about quality than quantity and you should trust we will deliver the important memories of your day. Saying that, we also don’t believe in cutting corners on the delivery just to keep the editing numbers down. They are your memories after all.

The images are delivered in an online password protected gallery for you to download as much as you wish, and you get a private view before they are opened up for you to share with your guests, who can then buy prints if they wish or download a social media version.

Of course. Group photos are the perfect way to capture all your loved ones in at least one place during the wedding, and these are the pictures that tend to span generations – consider these your legacy images! We just do them quickly and in a relaxed more informal manner – especially if we’re in 35 degree heat!

In over 400 weddings we have never missed one due to illness as we take care of ourselves particularly in the height of the season. However should this happen we have spent years building an extensive network of equally brilliant photographers to make sure your wedding was covered.

We personally only shoot photos for weddings over 30 guests, as we believe in the power of two photographers, but we’re happy to say we work with a hugely talented videographer to capture your day in film, and most importantly we work really well together. It’s very important your photographer and videographers are of the same style and ethos, so you can ensure the magic is captured without compromise.

This said, we can provide one of us on photo and one on video for weddings of less than 30 guests and small non-wedding events, pre-wedding shoots, proposal photography and other lifestyle photo shoots. Just let us know on enquiry.

All our fees include our travel and accommodation. When we learn about your location and plans our quote will include this so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Just book and we’ll be there!

Due to our limited availability each year we can cannot hold dates without an official booking but feel free to contact us for more information in the meantime.

Make sure you have contacted us to check our availability, and then we can jump on a call (or if you’re near Herts/London let’s meet for a drink) to have a chat. Ideally we prefer to chat first as this is the start of our journey with you, which is why you see the trust and connection we have with our clients through our images. Then we take a booking fee and start getting excited with you.

For weddings over a year away we split the remaining balance into two payments, one half way through and one around 6 weeks before your wedding day. Closer dates pay the booking fee then the balance at 6 weeks to go. For short notice bookings we reserve the right to request full balance on booking.

On the wedding day itself, our coverage is unlimited, we’ve never believed in set hour packages as who are we to decide what is worth covering at your wedding? Our clients love that we are right there enjoying the dancefloor with you. For smaller weddings or elopements we will work with you to determine if there are specific hours, but generally we keep shooting whilst we feel there are memories to capture. When shooting a rehearsal dinner as part of a destination wedding abroad, we would usually cover around 3-4 hours, but again it depends on what you are doing.

 

As for food, we do appreciate being fed whilst you are eating as we won’t photograph you at this time, but would rather not leave the building to get a hot meal which is necessary to keep us on top form. This is because our hours tend to be longer than most, so a good meal will keep us going. We  really don’t want to be having to leave your wedding at any point to grab something to eat, we would worry about missing something!

Yes we are fully insured with public liability and professional indemnity insurance, as well as any necessary travel insurance. We do recommend all our clients get their own event insurance too to prepare for any eventuality.

The joy of modern weddings is that no two are the same, therefore we prefer to gain as much information about the event before confirming our rate, but as a guide, we recommend your photography budget is at least £5k. We have special rates for elopements and intimate weddings too, so please give details on enquiry.
