we're the lawsons


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


We’ve been capturing people laughing their heads off since 2005. We’re driven to create beautiful, timeless images that really mean something. Not to get too deep but this isn’t just about you guys, it’s about your whole family.


Two time winners of best photographers in the north west (yay us!). Our work has taken us all over the world and has been featured in many publications. So, if you really love each other and you want pretty pictures of the day you got married, get in touch.

cosy jumpers

& cups of tea

The secret of any happy marriage, obviously. We met 17 years ago through a friend at university and bonded over this mutual love of tea and cosy jumpers. Having such a solid foundation for a lasting relationship, it was no surprise that we got married a few years later. Like all the best British weddings, it was wonderfully rainy.


Time flies when you're having fun. We’ve now been married for twelve years and live in a wonky little cottage in Lancashire with our latest creation – a six year old human called Albert. We also work for our two extremely posh cats, Hugo and Theodore. Having a kid means tea rarely cuts it anymore, so we’ve moved on to coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.

be yourself

let your weird out

The images we create are unique to each wedding. We’re not simply taking pictures of people, but about them; but what they're feeling, who they are close to. These are the little stories we love to tell.


People are always asking us how to get the best pictures and the answer is really simple - chill out! If you're having an awesome day, so will everyone else, and that's all the material we need.


A wedding is a crazy rollercoaster of a day. It's a day to be absolutely yourself, surrounded by the people who love you. Be chilled, be present, don't sweat the small stuff.


Although it may seem strange to have a camera following you around, there’s no need to feel self conscious; our job is to make you look awesome, your job is to have the best day ever.
