Asian wedding photography

Asian weddings, being rich in tradition and custom are particular favourites of ours to capture. We travelled to Delhi for our first some years back & now have many as regular features within our UK bookings diary.

LGBTQ+ wedding photography

We are LBGTQ+ friendly and committed to capturing stories of love and connection. Do get in touch to share your plans of how you intend to celebrate. We’d love to be there to capture it all!

Family & Lifestyle Photography

Change happens in the blink of an eye. One minute children, the next they’re leaving home. An annual portrait, family reunion or holiday break are ideal times to give us a shout, bringing our unique mix of natural, documentary & portraiture to the day!


Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and we could not ask for them to be anymore perfect. Me and my Husband are not the best in front of the camera, but STS didn’t make us stand and pose all day, they really captured the natural emotion of the day. Just like it says ‘Subtle, Emotive and Raw’. We can’t thank you enough!

They have a very calming presence on the day and are never intrusive. In fact, most of the time, we didn’t realise they were even taking our photograph at all, which is exactly what we had hoped for! They’re quite clearly passionate about their work and that is something you cannot buy. They will go above and beyond to capture your day in a truly beautiful and perfect way. We will always recommend them to anyone that asks.

Wow! I cannot rate STS photography of our wedding highly enough.
Their full set of pictures is more than just a generic wedding album. It’s like an entire story book of the day which doesn’t only capture the main events or smaller details of the day but also captures the emotion felt through every part of it in the most natural way.

100% track record of 5 star reviews for STS is no surprise and absolutely well deserved

We could see from the website that they had done Indian weddings before and so had experience in the different ceremonies and nuances of an Indian Wedding. We knew they was the right people for our wedding! Calm, and clear about their style and that was exactly what we wanted! Their documentary style photography really captures how your wedding looked and felt. We could not have been happier with the photos they took of our wedding! Nothing was too big an ask.

Thank you for giving us wedding photos that we will cherish for a lifetime..

Absolutely blown away by the amazing images captured by STS. We literally can not stop looking at them! The most amazing days of our lives have been recorded in a way that we feel truly captures the spirit of the occasions, most incredible of all we didn’t have to strike a single awkward pose, the events just flowed as they should while we all had an incredible time STS just did their thing, and WOW didn’t they do it well. Thank you!
