Meet

The photograpHers

 

Hello and welcome.

Firstly, thank you for stopping by and taking a look at what we do. We are both professional photographers (Karen-Marie and Doug) based in Cambridgeshire and also married. We have been photographing Weddings, Portraits and commercial work since 2009. Karen started out with Portraits and Doug was into wildlife photography. After suffering a clot on the lung out of the blue at the age of thirty, Karen quickly changed her career as a nurse in the operating theatres and went into shooting weddings. It was a wake up call. Life is short so do what makes you happy. She also entered some of her Portrait work into a competition and won out of hundreds of photographers. The prize was a years bespoke Photography course with business training. Perfect timing ! It wasn't hard to persuade Doug to join her. When we started out professionally we hoped someone may just like our work. It quickly took off and here we are now with countless weddings under our belts. We have met so many wonderful people, genuine lovely couples and families and also along the way, singers, actors and footballers. We have had a blast. It is Karen who now has gone full circle and enjoys capturing all the new babies.

Doug (known to his friends as Dougie) has gone on to have front covers on magazines such as Country Life and has sold commercial images all over the world. He has also written tutorials for photography magazines but prefers to be behind his camera rather than a computer. He grew up in Pembrokeshire and is also one of the nicest guys you could meet. Very humble, very kind. He makes a mean sourdough and is currently learning piano. Karen-Marie is very easy going, and extremely calm. She is great with children. She also likes to style shoots and works with her clients to get the look they are after. She will take the time to find out what her clients want from the shoot and then will help create it. She loves her garden and everything flora related. She practices yoga and also paints. She grew up in Suffolk in an arty family surrounded by brushes in jam jars but also spent five years living in America which influenced not only her photography style but her appreciation of good customer service. They love to travel and are often found in Cornwall and Scotland.
