Hampshire Wedding Photographers

Hello, we are Carol and Paul Tansley. We are based in the tiny village of Headley in North East Hampshire, right on the border of Surrey and West Sussex. Our wedding photography is all about natural, emotive images. Images shot in the moment. Real, moments, not posed ones!

Real Moments | Not Posed

We are Documentary Wedding Photographers (aka Reportage style). Specialising in capturing the story of your wedding day unobtrusively with beautiful, candid photography. Natural photography that truly captures the emotions you were feeling at the time, in wedding photographs that you will enjoy for years to come. We love to shoot couple portraits too, if you would like them, but we never let these take over your special day or ask you pose awkwardly.

Just let us know details about your special day and we’ll create a bespoke quote for you.  If you’d like to know more about us, head over to our About page.

Documentary Wedding Photographers

We bring a wealth of photography experience to your special day, having shot over 300 weddings in Hampshire and the surrounding area in the last 10 years. Paul has many years of experience as a professional photographer. Having previously spent 18 years as a fashion photographer, shooting fashion and wedding magazines in London. Carol's background is as a graphic designer. She spent 7 years as Art Director of Wedding & Home magazine, we have fond memories of our many fashion shoots together. We've been a couple for the last 26 years, having met on a fashion trip.

However, we never rest on our laurels and continually strive to make our work even stronger. As creative photographers we pride ourselves in always pushing to create the best images we can from each of our couples' unique days.

Sam & Dave Wedding Portrait

"Paul & Carol were, without a doubt, one of the best decisions we made with regards to our wedding suppliers. Their style, unobtrusive and natural, was exactly what we were looking for. The photographs tell the story of our day beautifully, capturing emotions that just can't be staged."

Let us tell the story of your wedding day

Your day will be unique, whether you are getting married in one of our local Hampshire venues or in nearby Surrey or Sussex. Our relaxed style of unobtrusive wedding photography will capture that uniqueness. We don't shoot by numbers, just repeating what we've shot before. Of course, we'll photograph the obvious things - walking down the aisle, the speeches etc. - but it's the in-between things, the small moments, the personal things, that will make up the majority of your photos. Those are the special unique moments that are important to us as they only happen at Your Wedding. They are determined by your relationships with your relatives and friends and how you feel on your special day. Weddings are also about images of your family and guests laughing and having fun as much as they are about photos of the couple. Good wedding photography is about storytelling. So that those memories are captured for you to enjoy for many years to come.

This is what good documentary wedding photography is all about. We use all of our photographic skills, when taking pictures. Whether it be observation of light, using Sony A9 silent cameras, great lenses and the experience to know when to wait for a moment to unfold, to create beautiful images from those natural parts of your day.
