Thank you for visiting our site.
We are Claire and Karen, wedding photographers and friends, who together, make up littlebox.
We work alongside each other at each wedding to capture natural, beautiful images of your special day. We shoot mostly informal observations in order to tell the story of your day.
We prefer this candid, unobtrustive approach rather than staging anything but of course we would be happy to cover some more formal group shots, if you would like them. We tend to shoot without flash as we far prefer the quality of natural light.
Together we are constantly looking for pictures that capture the emotion, the personalities, the special moments and the details of your day, striving to shoot those unnoticed glimpses as well as the more obvious ones.
We believe our strengths lie in our partnership, our calm, friendly yet professional approach.
Working as a pair enables us to have more creative freedom. It allows us to be in two places at one time, to see things from different angles, shoot from different perspectives and use different creative approaches yet still managing to keep a low profile!
We’d love to set up a pre-wedding consultation, free of charge, to meet you, have a chat and for you to determine whether we would be the right photographers for you.
Karen has been involved with photography for the last 30 years. After studying at Trent Polytechnic in Nottingham and attaining a BA hons degree in photography, she went on to travel widely ending up in Australia and working as a freelance photographer's assistant.
Upon returning to the UK, she continued to assist a variety of London advertising photographers and gained a huge amount of experience over the years in studio work, location work and studio management.
She married a photographer in 1999 and started a family, at which point she moved into the realms of child and family portraiture building a large base of loyal clients.
Having being asked on several occasions to shoot weddings, she eventually took the plunge, found that she enjoyed it and has gradually built up a wedding portfolio.
Together with Claire she opened littlebox.
Claire initially worked in Architecture and then Publishing and Design. In 1998 she gave up work to start a family and whilst off work decided to return to college to pursue her life long love of photography. She launched her own photography business in 2011. Before long, clients were requesting Claire to cover their weddings and she loved it.
She teamed with Karen deciding that they should take a dual approach to the wedding format and has never looked back.
