About Us

steve&ruth   Hi. This is our About Us.  We are a Husband and wife team, just two ordinary people, who love wedding photography and videography.  Our names are Steve and Ruth and this is our full time job.  Actually I don’t think either of us see it as a job. More a voyage of sharing a magical day with Couples we photograph and film.

We have lived in the Lake District for a number of years. Although we will travel anywhere to photograph weddings, we always look forward to returning to the hills, mountains, rivers and lakes of Cumbria.

Life is a collection of moments that all add up.  Three unforgettable moments when I witnessed the birth of our three daughters, humbled and ecstatic at   the same time.  Stressed when we moved around the UK twenty six times due to the work I was doing.  Elated when we finally made the decision to move to the Lake District and stop ‘climbing the career ladder’.  Emotional when each of our three daughters got married and chose to live in the Lake District as well.  Regretful when Ruth and I got married that we didn’t book a professional photographer as we do not have any images to look back on.

Excited when we travel to join couples who are getting married because it is a magical moment we can share in their lives.  Cosy when we sit at home enjoying the amazing cappuccino coffees that I make!  Laughter and joy when we look through the images captured on the day remembering the fun we have had fulfilling our ‘job’.  Satisfaction that we are making other couples very happy and giving something to cherish for life.

So this is the business bit if you really are interested in what we do!

If you were to ask any of the Couples we have worked for to summarise our service all would say friendly, fun, nothing too much trouble, and iconic images.

Have s good look through our Blog. It shows that our style is a mixture of contemporary fashion and traditional glamour. We capture intimate moments and the little details that matter so much.

With three of our own daughters married we understand the stresses, cost, excitement and journey of the wedding day.  We can contribute to a calmness on the day of the wedding. We understand exactly what is happening and how to take the stress, particularly of timings which invariably run over, out of the equation.

Your wedding photographs will possibly be your only reminder of a very special. A once in a lifetime day that meant so much to you both.

We have carried out and been booked for wedding photography at Cumbria’s top wedding venues. These include the Inn On The Lake Ullswater, Broadoaks Country House Hotel, Linthwaite Hotel Windermere, The Daffodil Hotel Grasmere, The Villa at Levens, The Belsfield at Windermere, Lodore Falls Hotel Keswick, Castle Green Hotel Kendal, Langdale Chase Windermere, Cartmel Racecourse Cartmel, Mitton Hall Lancashire, Eaves Hall Lancashire, Leighton Hall Carnforth, Belsfield Hotel Windermere,  The Midland Hotel Morecambe, Stonecross Manor Kendal and The Samling Windermere and wedding venues in Ulverston, Leeds, High Wycombe and London.  This level of experience means that we can attend any venue and ensure the best locations for wedding photography are chosen for your day.

We will make sure your wedding album captures the passion and excitement of your complete wedding day. Supporting your wedding photographs with handcrafted Wedding Albums as well as a USB presentation case.

I am a qualified member of the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWWP).
