We're gay. Will you shoot our wedding?
Yes, of course!
We're secret agents / minor royalty. Can we stay anonymous?
No problem. Lots of couples we’ve worked with have been keen to stay unGoogleable, which is why you won’t find their names on the site.
What happens if your camera breaks?
We’ll get one of the others out and carry on. You won’t know anything happened.
Why are two photographers better than one?
Because we can be in two places at once, which is otherwise only achievable by magic. Rachel thinks Chris is the better photographer. Chris thinks Rachel is the better photographer. Chris is definitely better at shooting over high walls. Rachel is probably better at helping you get your veil unhooked when it’s snagged on your bra clasp.
We're having a tiny wedding and only want you for a few hours. Is that okay?
Yes please. The shortest wedding shoot we’ve done was three hours; the longest was three days. We’ve shot weddings in town halls, cathedrals, registry offices and a field by a river — whatever you’re up to, we’d love to be there.
My mum really wants a posed group shot but I'm not really into that sort of thing…
One she’ll send all your great aunts framed copies of for Christmas? Amazing. We love those – here are some of our favourites.
Can you make us a wedding album?
Yes please. And some ridiculously cool photo books, and handy thank-you cards, and fine-art prints. Let us know what you’d like, and we’ll make it for you; here are some ideas for printing your wedding pictures.
I love my local printing place. Can I print my pictures there?
Of course. We’ll give you all your files full size, fully edited and ready to print (wherever you like).
Why are you handy to have around at our wedding?
If you’re wondering how to choose a London wedding photographer, ask how good they are in a nuptial crisis. Things we’ve pulled out of our camera bags for brides in distress: emergency deodorant, blister plasters (large for heels, small for toes), Vaseline, perfume (Jo Malone’s English Pear + Freesia, usually), hair slides, safety pins, a mirror, ibuprofen (because by the time the cake’s been cut and the bouquet’s been thrown, there is no such thing as comfortable shoes). Rachel also once zipped a groom’s sister into her ambitiously tight dress in the ladies’ room minutes before the ceremony.
Where do you live?
Sometimes we live in Los Angeles (Christopher’s American) and go to London a lot. At the moment we live in London (Rachel’s English) and go to Los Angeles a lot. September Pictures’ UK HQ is the Amethyst House in leafy West Hampstead. It’s nice here, and there are apple trees, and we have a part-time pet fox named Fernanda, and her five kiddos.
Where did you get married?
We were wed at the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts in Los Angeles. It was magnificent.
Where did you honeymoon?
Morocco. Essaouira, Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains – if you’re going, please do ask us for tips. We still can’t stop talking about it.
