'Can't thank you enough for yesterday it was just perfect really couldn't have asked for any more we are both so
grateful and really didn't stop smiling all day! We had such fun walking round Oxford with you! We really will cherish these photos and memories forever.'
We're Vicki & Helen the V&H behind V&H Wedding Photography. We've been best friends for over 20 years, housemates for 11 and photographing weddings and families together for the past 6. We have a cat called Cassie, a crazy kitten called Calypso and a Bulgarian rescue dog called Benji. If you follow us on Instagram can guarantee cute animal content.
We love all forms of photography, being creative, pizza, Buffy the vampire slayer (ask us about the ultimate geeky way we met!) and Weddings! so if you are planning a Buffy themed, Italian catered big day we are 100% there (possibly in costume) we are also terrible at being in front of the camera ourselves so 1. we know exactly how you feel and 2. it's taken 4 years to finally get around to doing our own photoshoot for this website!
We also love music photography so if we are not shooting weddings you'll find us either in a field at a festival, or at a local gig taking photos of our favourite bands. We really think our experience in other forms of photography brings something unique to our work and you can check some of our other photography out here and here.
We are very grateful we get to run our own business together doing something we both love and are so lucky that our strenths are so complimentary. Vicki is great at thinking up ace promts and geeing up the group shots while Helen is the expert at spotting the children playing up a tree or looking cute covered in cake. One of us can be taking formals while the other gets the candids of your guests or scouting out shoot locations. On top of that you get multiple angles of the key moments and one each of us for prep. The effect really comes through when you look through the whole story of your day.
Our number one piece of feedback from the people we have worked with is that we make everything so much more relaxed, fun and enjoyable than they ever expected. Our philosophy is that it's your wedding and you should feel totally at ease throughout the day. No dragging you off for 3 hours of portraits while everyone eats the canapes! Our priority is you enjoying your day as well as getting the photographs that really matter and we use our experience to make sure that happens as effortlessly as possible.
We did ask Cassie to partake in the photo shoot but apparently she doesn't get out of bed for less than £250k and a years supply of Dreamies
