Photography by Marion Frances
'Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.' Marion's job is to capture those precious intimate and spontaneous images, which will bring you joy for years to come. Marion is there to tell the story of your wedding and works closely with her couples to achieve the best possible results.

On the day, she blends in and works in an unobtrusive way – the best way to get great results.
Some of the most wonderful compliments KCB Images receive from brides, grooms and their guests is that they barely noticed they were there. As a husband and wife team, their job is simple; to focus on being part of your wedding party and to ensure they observe and capture all the emotion only a wedding day can bring. From the immense pride of a father as he gives his daughter away and the sheer exhilaration when a bride says ‘I do’ to the rush of excitement as the bride and groom take to the floor for their first dance as husband and wife.

Little Red Book Photography
A photography duo, there will always be two people at the weddings which Little Red Book Photography shoot. It’s a great way to continually develop their candid style, as well as a great way to capture twice as much fun, love and tears. You know, all that great stuff that makes a wedding. David and Mac used to work separately, but found that they spent increasingly more time second-shooting for each other. Perhaps it was inevitable that they would get together as a single business – cue Little Red Book Photography.
