Birches & Pine photography was established by James Watson and Rich Jones; two professional photographers with a unique mix of styles and skills to bring to the table. James’ formal photography education and experience in portraits combined with Rich’s travel and landscape photography background means you can expect the best of both worlds when you hire us to shoot your big day. While James is drawn to capturing those stunning portrait shots, Rich is searching for those candid moments that so often get overlooked. With the two of us combined, you can be sure that every special detail of your wedding day comes together to create a gallery of something more than just your typical wedding photos - we bring the story of your wedding day to life.
It all starts with meeting the two men behind the lens - Rich and James. Our main aim is to make you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. The last thing you want is to feel as though there are two strangers at your wedding, taking photos of you. This means that we spend the time getting to know you, with an informal meet up before the big day. While you may scroll through our photos and feel as though you like what we do, for us it’s about more than that. We know that the best photographs come from those who feel as relaxed as possible with their photographers, which is why it is so important to build a relationship and have fun together. We want your wedding photos to reflect your personality which is why our tagline is, “Wedding photography that’s about you.”
You will also get your very own pre-wedding shoot before the big day, too. This provides the perfect opportunity to get to know us, and for us to get to know you! We’ll ask you about your story, where you met, how you fell in love, and all of those little “in-jokes” that only you and your significant other share. By the time your pre-wedding shoot is over, you should feel totally relaxed - and have had a few laughs along the way.
As your big day rolls around, we will be there with you every step of the way; capturing all of those special moments that will feel over in a flash on the day itself. Having two professional photographers, with our unique mix of styles, will ensure nothing is missed. While we do take the ‘formal photos’ for the mantlepiece and family album, nothing is overly staged or planned. Instead, we like the photos to look natural and unposed, reflecting your personality as a couple, telling your story, and creating beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
Birches & Pine is based in the West Midlands, but we travel all over the country (and the globe) to capture couples’ wedding days. Whether you’re getting married in a castle in Cumbria or on a beach in Bulgaria, Birches & Pine Photography offer a range of package options to shoot your big day.
