Colourful Creative Documentary

Vibrant storytelling

Fay and Shane-77

“I spent ages looking for a photographer, there’s so much choice but I’d say 85% of the photographers I found offer the same kind of thing, and it wasn’t what we were looking for. I decided one night to look for a photographer that would travel rather than someone local to the west midlands and that’s when I found Babb Photo. I looked through Laura’s gallery and fell in love with the images. The photos I saw were creative and captured feeling.  I remember when I contacted Laura she was away so couldn’t get back to us straight away and I spent the weekend torturing myself looking through her galleries, reading her blog and falling more and more in love with her work. Luckily for us when she got back she replied to let us know that our date was free.  Laura was amazing to work with, and we loved having our photos taken.”

I might have welled up a little bit when I read Fay and Shane’s feedback.  They were so warm and lovely to work with.  From the moment I first met them in London to talk about their wedding plans over a cup of tea they were really welcoming, and I loved every minute of their wedding at Fazeley Studios in Digbeth, Birmingham.

Their wedding ceremony was really special as they got married on the anniversary of Shane’s parents wedding, in the same church where Shane’s parents were married.  The vicar made a point of showing the marriage certificate from Shane’s parents wedding all those years before.

They then went on to a laid back BBQ reception and we spent some time hanging out in Digbeth, creating some portraits.  Here’s what happened.
