Abi + Ollie had a wonderful country wedding in the Gloucestershire countryside – in Abi’s family home’s grounds no less! Rustic in parts, every detail was well-thought through and beautiful. Shooting it was a pleasure.

Early this year, on a slightly grey February day, I had the huge pleasure of shooting the engagement shoot of these two bright things on Hampstead Heath. They’ve since been married in San Francisco – one of my all time favourite places in the world. Perfect. Congratulations guys!

Daniel and Lewis had a beautifully simple wedding day with the ceremony at midday followed by a stroll around the grounds of York House in Richmond. Choosing to keep the guest list low, only two close friends were invited to the day, so I count myself very lucky to have been there to capture such a lovely, intimate celebration.

 

Our year in pictures – 2015

Our year in pictures – 2015

It’s been a year of firsts for Story + Colour – first engagement shoot in Paris, first Indian wedding, first wedding abroad in Cyprus, first trip to… Peckham. This little dream we had about owning our own business three years ago has really come to life and we’re loving every minute. On top of the international travel, our work has taken us to the Cotswolds, West Sussex, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, London, Surrey and Devon. We’ve managed to get our new website up and running which not only shows the photography at the heart of Story + Colour, but also the design of invites and various bits and pieces that we do along side it.

Thank you to every couple who has put their faith in us this year – we cherish each and every one of you and it has been such a pleasure to work along side you and be present on your big day. Your relaxed natures, sense of fun, massive smiles, epic dance moves and tears of happiness have inspired us for the past 12 months. We can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store and look forward to the people we will meet and the places we will visit along the way. Here are just some of our favourite images from 2015.

Happy new year! Laura and Dan xx

Cat + Oli // Paris engagement shoot

For me as a photographer, shooting an engagement shoot in Paris is a big deal and a definite high point in the life of Story and Colour.

Unfortunately, my only experience of Paris is from at least 12 years ago, so we took our lead from Cat and Oli who had already planned our route, starting of course at the Eiffel Tower! We then wandered the Parisian streets and eventually made our way up to MontMartre, with the most amazing views of the city and then devoured a well earned cup of coffee in the artist square.

Cat and Oli were great to work with and the whole day felt more like hanging out with friends rather than being on a shoot.

Ellie approached us with the idea of a family photoshoot to celebrate her dad’s 60th birthday, at his urban allotment in Caledonian Road, London. Urban vs nature is one of our favourite photographic subjects, stemming from many student projects rooting around forgotten, overgrown car dumping grounds and delapidated power stations. So off Dan went!

Warning: contains seasonal veg, oodles of sister love and a ridiculously cute baby…

Leo and Jemima are two of the coolest people we know. Their giggles and playfulness is infectious – being around them is super fun, and super exhausting! Capturing these guys on camera is something that happens regularly, being our niece and nephew and all… but when we were asked to do a proper family shoot on a boiling hot summer’s day we jumped at the chance. Here’s some of our favourites from the day.
