“Martin and Penny, I just don’t know where to begin, other than asking if you are indeed real life wizards! You are AMAZING AT WHAT YOU DO!!! I absolutely love the photographs and have spent the entire morning pouring over them and reliving our wedding! Thank you so very much for all the work you’ve done … I’m over the moon with them and can’t WAIT to show my friends and family! You were both absolutely brilliant on the day and herded us all well. Your photographer’s eye is outstanding … and I’m chuffed to bits we found you! We will look forward to receiving the USB stick in the post and sharing a few pics on Facebook with friends too. Thank you again for your expert work you two … you make a wonderful duo!
Thank you both again, from the bottom of my heart … I always said the photos were the most important and now they’ve turned out to be just about the best money I’ve ever spent in my entire life! THANK YOU!!!” Lucy
“We chose Tino&Pip because we desperately didn’t want the stereotypical ‘wedding photos’ with uncomfortable, staged group shots or for our guests to feel uncomfortable with a lens in their face all day. We found Tino&Pip and after one look at their website we knew we had found just what we were looking for. Tino&Pip bring the word ‘cool’ to the world of wedding photography and run with it. Our photographs look like something out of an incredibly hip magazine and Martin & Penny’s ‘photographer’s eye’ is outstanding. Just when you think they must have seen every angle or photo opportunity in the room they bring even more out the bag. To work with, they are an absolute delight. Their joy of other people’s weddings is so evident. They 100% listen to what their client wants … they listen with their eyes wide open! Thank you Penny and Martin for creatively and cleverly allowing us to relive our wedding day again and again by simply looking back though our incredibly shot photographs.” Lucy&Dylan
A Quirky Brighton Engagement Shoot Following a Rap Battle Proposal!
We’re pretty proud of the fact that we managed to plan the majority of our own wedding in about three months, but on Saturday we shot Jackie&Adam’s wedding after they’d spent just two months putting everything together! Somehow in that time we also managed to squeeze in an engagement shoot around Brighton, taking in some of Jackie&Adam’s favourite spots around the seaside town.
These guys were so great during the shoot – they have so much fun together, and really wanted to make the most of Brighton. Jackie is from Texas, and when she starts to feel a little homesick, finds JB’s Diner the perfect comfort (if you ever find yourself in Brighton, you really have to try their mint chocolate chip milkshake, it’s seriously amazing!). We also went in search of some graffiti, but found most of their favourite artwork had been covered up. Despite that, we managed to find some other pretty spectacular murals in the North Laines! Thanks so much Jackie&Adam – hope you guys are enjoying a spectacular first week of married life!
Kind words from Jackie&dam about their engagement shoot
“We absolutely love them. They’re beautiful, they capture our personality and somehow make us look completely glamorous. And they’re absolutely gorgeous scenery-wise. It made us a lot more relaxed about both the wedding and the photos of it.”
With rather busy schedules and a reasonable drive to reach each other, we resorted to Skype for our first meeting (and probably spent half our time looking at ourselves in the inset screen to make sure we didn’t look like a couple of dufuses!). Over the very vocal approval from Beth&Tom’s dog Brody, we could see their great style and love for each other, and we couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding!
Tom and his groomsmen all had the most amazing sleeve tattoos (save for best man Ed), and when we chatted to Tom he explained that the plan was for the guys to all roll up their shirt sleeves to really show off the artwork on their arms. It was pretty incredible. Being a summer wedding, they felt that suit jackets would be uncomfortable and unnecessary, and they looked pretty stylish without! Beth and the bridesmaids all had their own stunning tattoo work too, and their love of ink really flowed through the wedding, from the decor in Beth&Tom’s flat, to the stationery, table names & cupcakes. The bold designs and colours really set off well against the barn reception venue!
Unfortunately the weather in the couple of days prior to the wedding hadn’t been kind enough to let Beth&Tom’s ceremony go ahead in the beautiful woodland at their venue, but they decorated the inside of the barn beautifully. As we wandered around the old farm buildings at the venue, we had no problems finding quirky backdrops and unusual angles for shots of the two of them!
“One of the real highlights of the day was the time spent having our photos done – Penny and Martin have such a brilliant, relaxed approach that Tom and I both felt really comfortable and just enjoyed spending time together while they took our pics. Everyone always says that you need to try and snatch a few moments together on your wedding day, we felt that we ended up with a whole hour!” Beth&Tom (Read the rest of their testimonial here).
Thanks so much guys for you and your guests being so relaxed and welcoming – we had an amazing day!
“The photos look awesome! Thank you so much, they really are better than I ever expected! Ailsa and I are so happy with them!”
“Penny and Martin were amazing, we hardly even noticed them snapping away all day and the photographs are exactly what we wanted, they have captured the atmosphere and told the story of the day perfectly! Perfection comes to mind and they were so lovely too!” Ailsa&Ian (for Love My Dress wedding blog feature).
