Hi, we are Purson Photography and Wedding Films, Shawn & Laura, husband and wife and that's us with our daughter Olivia.
We met back in 1998 when starting to work at our first part-time jobs and have been together ever since! We have been together for over half of our lifes! Don't want to give our ages away but you can do the math. This gives us a strong bond and something that verges on telepathy that come with spending over 15 years together!
We fell in love with weddings whilst planning our own wedding. Always passionate about photography we considered the profession while planning for our own wedding back in 2008. We started by covering friends and family weddings and then moving on from there. Our portfolio is now extensive and we have worked all over the country covering couples very important days. We’ve been involved in the photographic industry for over ten years and have been fortunate enough to cover over 500 weddings. We’re lucky enough to have won a few awards along the way and had the privilege of teaching and mentoring many aspiring photographers.
What do we love about our jobs?: The excitement of the day, the emotion of it all, the buzz, the details, and most importantly that awesome feeling as two people make one of the most amazing, exciting yet mind-boggling and sometimes even ‘scariest’ decision in their lives, and the fact we get to share it together.
we boil our style down to 3 different words: Love, Friendly & Beautiful.
‘Love’ – for me that’s what a wedding is primarily about, and what we are trying to capture the essence of: two people who love each other enough to say that they want to spend the rest of the lives together, surrounded by all the people most important to them.
‘Friendly’ – Every wedding is unique and personal to the families involved. Our job isn’t only to photograph the events but we help, support and advise along the way. We know many of our couples have never done this before and we make sure we can help with our knowledge and expertise. It’s not all about the end product but also making sure that you have the most amazing wedding day possible. You should relax be yourselves, have fun, and just enjoy it – and then allow the pictures to reflect that. Don’t worry we’ll be mostly blending into the day capturing it all as it all unfolds and only step in where we’ve agreed or if it’s really needed.
‘Beautiful’ – We specialise in an unobtrusive documentary style to allow you and your guests to relax whilst we work. We’ll take you away for a short time where you can relax and have some time alone whilst we create some beautiful and unique photos for you to treasure forever.
If you like the sound of all the above, seen examples of work on our photography or videography sections, please drop us a line and we would be thrilled to hear about your day and how you feel we could be a part of it.
If you wish to find out more about us, arrange a meeting, or make your booking please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
