we are the lawsons


More specifically, we're Pete & Laura and we're wedding photographers.


We’re driven to create beautiful, timeless images that really mean something. After all, your wedding isn't just about you, it’s about all the people you've chosen to invite to this amazing day.


While we revel in the creative process and in capturing your day as beautiful art, the heart of our images comes from you - your joy, your emotions.

to be blunt

it's not about the dress

It’s about the people, the party, the atmosphere you create. Our favourite images are almost always those happy accidents where life happens and we’ve put ourselves in the right place at the right time.


The most important part of our work is observing and understanding who and what is important to you; to capture and preserve those memories and emotions that are individual to your wedding. All you have to do is embrace this crazy wonderful day and so will everyone else.



What is our style?

Documentary wedding photographers, creative wedding photographers, reportage?

Don't put us in a box! We love unstaged moments. We don't interfere with events unfolding before us. We're obsessed with gorgeous natural photographs.


But we do love a few minutes with you guys. We get too excited when we spot a fabulous location, or amazing light. We're even more thrilled when our couples put their trust in us to act on our impulses and accept that the corner of a construction site might be an awesome place for pictures where we can all giggle like kids.
