We are Helen & Noel, a married couple living in Braintree. We met online in 2002, back in the days of freeserve chat rooms and good old dial-up. We spent a couple of months talking online and then Noel travelled from Macclesfield down to Essex to meet face to face for my birthday weekend in The November. We hit it off straight away and quickly realised our shared passion for photography.
I travelled to Macclesfield to spend Christmas with Noel, it was so hard leaving on Boxing Day, but I had to be back at work the next day in Braintree. Noel travelled to Essex again for New Year and made the move to Braintree in January. He proposed on Valentine’s Day and a year to the day when he first visited we got married. It was a wonderful day, filled with fantastic memories. We still look at our wedding photos and reminisce.
Over the years we developed our skills mostly with wildlife and the occasional wedding or celebration for friends and family and realised we loved it ! There is nothing like the buzz of sharing and capturing the love on a wedding day.
In 2016 we took the plunge, setting up H N Photography.Uk and photographed our first paid wedding. We have never looked back.
Our wedding day was wonderful, but after several years of photography we have come to realise, if we could do it again, we would change a lot of things. We are not just photographers and turn our hand to many things on a wedding day, whether helping with ties or cravats, pinning on buttonholes or running minor emergency repairs to attire and accessories. We still learn something new from every wedding and often adjust our service to reflect this.
We only met our photographer once before the day and although he did a great job we did not feel we knew him and were not completely at ease when being photographed. We have found that having several meetings with our couples, they are much more relaxed on the day and feel they can approach us for anything. Many of our couples have told us it is more like having friends at their wedding, rather than just being a hired photographer.

Excellent service, you won't find a better couple that make you feel at ease and take the worry out of the day. Loved the photos and DVD, can't thank them enough for the all round package and price.

Helen and Noel are 2 amazing photographers!
Such ease to deal with!
They are a lovely couple and easy to get along with! Covered loads of things before the wedding so we could get on with the day!
They went above and beyond on certain things from providing props for photos to making sure my late mother was as part of my day in my photos and dealt with with it in such a caring way thank you!
They remembered members of the wedding parties names even when we were talking about the wedding when photo were handed over a month later!!!
They deffo give a personal touch to there work!
They fitted in well at the wedding and they even took me and my husband away for our shots together not only for the photos but to have time together and to catch our breathes and relax a bit between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast! That was deffo needed!
The photo outcome ..... they took absolutely beautiful photos! We love them all!!!!
Thank you so much Helen & Noel! Thanks for spending and capturing our special day for us!

We organised our wedding short notice and on a tight budget. Photos were not top of my list initially and with only days to go, I suddenly realised I may not get any quality photographs of our special day. Helen and Noel came and helped us at the last minute and we couldn't have been more pleased with how friendly and helpful they were. They went above and beyond with the service that they provided to us and we were so overcome with emotions at watching our DVD, especially as we didn't even realise we would be getting one - so it was a fantastic surprise! The quality of the pictures are excellent and they have a knack for capturing those little details and special moments, whether intimate, artistic or even comedic. Our photos take you on a journey and you feel as if you were there. Helen and Noel have a real eye for details, even the simplist photos have such great depths and the colours are amazing. Helen and Noel were very sympathetic to our needs and the needs of our guests. Infact our guests all commented on how approachable and patient they were. To quote one guest "usually wedding photographers are really rude, but your guys were great!". We were impressed with how quickly they learnt everyone's names, which is especially helpful with children. We got excellent value for money, infact I really think they are underselling themselves, and with two photographers you get double for your money regardless! I would whole heartedly recommend them and we are looking forward to doing a family photo shoot with them at some point soon. Thanks very much, we will never forget what you have done for us, you are a part of of our wedding memories now!

Helen and Noel are so professional and so easy to work with. They did our wedding a couple of years ago and a portrait shoot last November for us. This couple are so committed, making sure you get exactly what you want, nothing is too much trouble. We still look at our wedding pictures now and are so happy with the quality and the memories are brought back alive every time. Their prices definitely do not reflect their professionalism, quality and attention to detail.

Helen and Noel were suggested to us for our Silver Wedding anniversary as they had recently done a friend's wedding photography.

One word sums up these two, commitment. They are an amazing couple, both professionally and personally. Always communicating, always thinking of how they can provide the best service, take the best shots, yet still remain 'invisible' during the event.

They listen to you, work with you, to get the best shots, rather than decide how it's going to be. They took the time to get to know the family, and guests. Who is who, and how best to capture those relationships. Helen and Noel understand that the pictures are how YOU see and remember your special day, not how the photographers saw it. They become part of your team, not just contractors. And, for us, they became a part of our special day. make them part of yours too.

They have done a fantastic job with our wedding photos. They do not take lightly the faith placed in them to preserve the memories of a landmark moment. It is touching to see the passion they have, and that they have an almost personal desire to capture the precious moments for us. Thank you both XXX

Helen and Noel photographed our wedding recently and they were absolutely brilliant, they were really helpful on the lead up to the day making sure they checked all our venues out, on the day they were professional, friendly and a joy to work with, they really made the effort to fit in with all our friends and family, made myself and my husband feel relaxed and comfortable on our day, which really added to making our day special and one we will never forget! Helen and Noel are a wonderful couple and I would wholeheartedly recommend them for anyone who was looking for photographers, it really shows in the way they work that they love what they are doing

H N Photography.Uk Q&A

H N Photography.Uk Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Don't follow hard and fast rules. Move around a lot, watch the magic unfold. Keep in the background and allow people to behave naturally and fully enjoy the day without even realising they are being photographed. Sometimes, shoot the moment, rather than the posed subject, and with two photographers we can do both. Connecting with your subject and having spontaneity.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

Most importantly, finding out what the client wants and expects. What their likes and dislikes are. Preference for black and white or colour images. If a wedding shoot, who the main players are and the shots that are important to them. Whether they are comfortable in front of the camera or not. What their concerns may be.

What do you love most about your job?

Meeting people, forming a connection with them and sharing one of the most magical days of their lives. The reactions from people when we hand over their final images.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Friends and family and our passion for delivering good quality images. The compliments we received from people about how our photographs looked natural, faces were not washed out by over-use of flash.

Why should our clients choose you?

We listen to our clients and work with them to capture the events as they see and experience them. Use of available light wherever possible to create natural, bright clean images. Two photographers are better than one. Being a couple you get both male and female perspectives and ideas. Creating a bond between us and our clients is key to them being relaxed and comfortable with us.
