First Look is a relaxed, unobtrusive and fun approach to wedding photography. We provide images that capture the real feel of the day, whilst you enjoy it.


Are there two photographers at every wedding

Yes. Sam and Ollie are both present at every wedding, subject to availability upon booking.

What's your turnaround time?

We tend to supply all final images within a month of the wedding, but we send over a small selection shortly after the wedding to keep you going!

Where do you travel to?

Anywhere, we're more than happy to travel! For weddings further afield we do charge travel expenses.

How many weddings do you shoot per year?

At the moment, we've got an unofficial limit of about 10 per year. We both run a commercial photography and video production company called SO Visual, which takes up a lot of our time in the week, so we try not to take up too many weekends with weddings if possible. We love shooting weddings, and shooting a smaller amount scratches the itch, whilst allowing us time with our families.

Fancy a pint?

100%, every good wedding shoot includes a pint.

How long are you there for?

If it's a full day, it'll be bridal prep to first dance, which is up to 9 hrs (typically 11am-8pm). If it's just the essentials, this includes 5hrs coverage.


We had Sam and Ollie for our wedding in August and they did such a fantastic job, they listened to what we wanted and made us so relaxed on the day. They captured our day perfectly. So happy with all our pictures and would highly recommend.

Sam and Ollie are fantastic! Can’t recommend them enough! The pictures are amazing quality, and really good shots! Captured some really amazing candid moments on our wedding day! We booked with First Look for our 2020 wedding but due to covid we had to re-arrange our plans. We split our wedding over 2 days (2 different years). Sam and Ollie were fab about it, super accommodating and understanding. Both sets of pictures look like they were taken on the same day! Amazing consistency. We highly recommend First Look for your wedding photography! You’ll get some outstanding pictures, from quality to style of pictures!

We used First Look for our wedding earlier this year, and cannot recommend them enough. From the pre-wedding intro, to the beautifully presented box containing our memory stick. They understood exactly what we wanted, and we’re so happy with the photos. Thanks guys!

Emily and Andy

Sam and Ollie were brilliant throughout our whole wedding day! The photos were awesome, and they were great fun, really friendly, and made everyone feel so at ease. Couldn't recommend them highly enough!
