Hi, we are the Dales.

We are a husband and wife team. We've been shooting people for money since 2008...with cameras, obviously! We absolutely LOVE what we do, we love meeting new people and we love creating new memories.....memories that we hope will last a lifetime.

As of 2019 we have been fortunate enough to photograph over 450 weddings.

We are happiest out walking our dog Hazel on the beach in North Devon and love the outdoors in general. Our families and friends are also super important to us and love spending time with them. Usually around our big table eating and drinking, singing a few songs and generally enjoying the laughter that comes with it. Martin loves coffee, Loula loves tea and we both love cake!

Photographing people is the best 'job' in the world but doing it on their wedding day, a day so full of joy, laughter, love and emotion is just amazing.

holy shit you're getting married card

We have been working together as a team for over 10 years!

Yep, 10 years and still having fun...we know what each other is capable of and that's what makes it easy. Louise covers the morning with the girls, photographing the dress and the shoes and the atmosphere and Martin makes sure the boys are dressed properly whilst photographing their shenanigans! We are always at opposite ends to each other making sure we've got it all covered. We take loads and loads (and loads!!) of natural shots throughout a wedding day as well as some group photos; we make this bit quick and easy with Louise doing all of the organising whilst Martin gets the easy bit and just takes pictures.

We also love to have a little bit of time with you as a newly wed couple

We love this part of the day because its usually the point where you realise that...you just got married! We sneak you off away from the guests for a few photos, we are always careful not to keep you away from the party for longer than necessary.

We also photograph, speeches, cake cut and of course the first dance!

All of the above are covered by both of us, again from different angles and perspectives to give a full and varied story. We usually stay a little bit after the first dance to get some of you and your guests smashing out some grooves.

What people say about us.

“Martin & Louise were just amazing, thank you so much for the laughs the support but most of all for the amazing photographs. We will treasure them forever”

“Well, what can we say except, thank you...thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the AMAZING photos, we had the best day ever and you were a huge part of it...so, thank you.

Love xxx”

“As soon as we met Martin and Louise we knew that they were the photographers we wanted to capture our day. Their photographs are just amazing!! They work so well together and have such a great eye for what makes a great photo. We met them for a pre-wedding photo shoot and it was such fun! They captured so many great moments on our wedding day and the loving, happy atmosphere of our day really shines through. They are such a great couple and made us feel so at ease. We can't recommend them enough!

Martin & Louise were everything we wanted our wedding photographers to be and more! Would recommend them to anyone! They were fantastic, felt like they were guests rather than photographers and our photos are fantastic even though we only had one hour without rain! They helped us to feel relaxed especially after the groom literally came out of hospital on our wedding day after having his appendix removed! They were fantastic with our two children and the guests loved them”
