Remembrance photography

At funerals and remembrance services we work quietly in the background to capture discrete images using available light. We work with tact, sympathy and discretion and photograph as much or as little as you wish. A high-definition sound and video recording of the entire service, or just the eulogy and readings is available as an optional extra. The images we capture will help to bring back memories in the future, can be shared with those unable to atttend on the day and become priceless for future generations. We are often asked to send photographs and video recording to family members living abroad. Each image is hand corrected and viewable on the password-secure Client Area of this web site where prints and digital images are available to purchase at sensible prices.

Professional insurance

For our clients' peace of mind and for the reassurance of the venues we work at we have fully-comprehensive insurance policies with Royal Sun Alliance Insurance plc.

The policies provide public liability indemnity of up to £2 million plus an additional £2 million cover for product liability and professional indemnity of up to £75,000.

Two-photographer coverage

Clients have the choice of one-photographer or two-photographer coverage.

With two of us we can be in two places at the same time; for instance a lady photographer with the bride or partner getting ready for the day and a second photographer at the church or venue as everyone arrives.

Two photographers deliver double coverage; the ceremony from two camera angles and twice as many photographs throughout the day including many more natural, informal images.

Two photographers speed through family group photographs - one organising the group, the other capturing the image - allowing you more time to spend with your guests.


Kind Words

Read what some of our clients have been kind enough to say about us:

Wedding photography

Flexible coverage designed around your plans for the day. Choose full- or part-day with one or two photographers, the option to have a lady photographer with the bride or partner getting ready for the day and a second photographer at the venue as guests arrive, and/or a high-definition sound and video recording of your ceremony and other key moments.

Your wedding day

Before the day we chat through your plans and ideas, and if you wish we can meet for photos in the studio or at a scenic location.

On the day we capture your story with a blend of formal and informal images together with those must-have timeless moments you will treasure forever.

Afterwards, full post-production with each image individually hand-adjusted and colour-corrected. This process takes several days to complete and when finished your images are available to view on a password-secure gallery accessed through the Client Area of this website.


Our style

Relaxed, informal and fun-filled - the best photographs are of people happy and enjoying themselves. We work quickly and efficiently making sure you have time to spend with guests.

For much of the time you wont even notice we are there. However, if you have made an investment in professional photography it makes sense to set time aside during the day for us to provide you with a complete record of the day's events including a fabulous set of portraits of the two of you together as a newly-married couple.

Although most of your photographs will be in colour there will be some classy black & white ones too and we always have more than one camera to hand to make sure we never miss an important moment.

Albums, prints and digital images

Choose from a wide range of albums, prints, digital images, canvasses and enlargements. Albums, prints and digital images can be incuded with the booking, or purchased separately afterwards at sensible prices. Luxury albums from Graphistudio, Mario Acerboni and Jorgensen are available to order, and we also offer our own range of hand-designed traditional and storybook albums. Parent albums are also available. The on-line shopping facility is accessible through the Client Area of this web site.

Welcome to our web site.
are a long-established photography business known for our customer service and attention to detail. With a friendly and fun approach we offer more than just great photographs; most importantly we provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that your photography is in safe and expert hands.

Same Sex Weddings

It is always a special occasion when we photograph a wedding with two brides or two grooms. In a sense there is no difference between a bride and groom wedding, but on the day there is always that bit more individuality, just a bit more personality.

If you choose our two-photographer coverage we can provide a lady photographer to be with the brides before the ceremony, or a male photographer to be with the grooms, and in either case a second photographer at the venue as guests are arriving with double coverage throughout the day.

And we provide total flexibility to ensure full coverage of your day whatever special plans you have!


Asian and African Weddings

We have photographed many Asian and African weddings in temples, gurdwaras and churches throughout the UK.

They are always spectacular events, usually with hundreds of guests, often held over several days and hugely enjoyable. Our record to date is a wedding with 800 guests!

As well as photography we can also provide videography, and we have plenty of experience of all the traditional elements of Asian weddings including the Mehendi, Nikah and Walima, and the organisational skills necessary for the family group photographs.

Key-moment videography

Clients can choose to have a high-definition sound and video recording of their day's key moments such as the ceremony, speeches and first dance. After post-production the video is presented on a DVD. Remember though that you might need to pay a licence fee to the church or minister for us to record the choir and the music.

Our photographers

Business owner Steve Fryer is our main photographer and began by selling images to magazines and newspapers, then trained in wedding photography and is now a full-time professional photographer. He is supported by Diane Fryer, specialist wedding photographer and album designer, and by associate David Maynard who has a wealth of experience in social and commercial work. With more than one photographer on the team we can provide short notice coverage and a back-up photographer in the unlikely event of a problem on the day.


Commercial photography

If you need commercial photography please get in touch.

Products, places, people, events, business portraits and headshots are our speciality. We can usually provide short-notice availability for urgent local assignments and will travel to any UK or European location by arrangement.

With full in-house post-production and printing facilities we can provide fast turnaround times. For instance digital images are normally available the same day and printed images can be collected or despatched within 24 hours.

Family photography

Choose a studio session, a sitting in your own home, or a fun visit to a scenic location.

On the day we capture the widest possible selection of images including a mix of formal and informal in both colour and black & white.

After post-production your images are available to view in the password-secure Client Area of this web site. Prints and digital images are available to buy at sensible prices, and because we print in-house on professional photographic paper you are assured of a high quality product.


Passport photography

Rules for passport photographs are much stricter than they used to be.

Each nation has slightly different specifications for image size, head size, position of eyes and background colour, and the rules about babies and young children also vary from nation to nation.

We have the specifications for all nationalities and produce images guaranteed to be accepted as part of your visa or passport application, and our photographs can also be used for other types of identity card including driving licences.

Come-to-you photography is available for busy people, senior citizens and anyone with a mobility difficulty.
