Based in Witham, on the old Roman road between Colchester and Chelmsford, David and Sandra Islip have previously travelled right across the UK and extensively abroad, in the process capturing nearly 2000 wedding events between them. As professional partners, the Islips excel in creating elegant and sophisticated shots while not being afraid to disclose their clients' personalities.

Photographing weddings is their abiding passion, and thus they are devoted to providing a relaxing and enjoyable experience for their clients as well as producing gorgeous photographs. David and Sandra fully understand how important the chosen venue is to their client, and so make the most of their surroundings when capturing a memorable record of the bride and groom's big day.


David Islip FBIPP and his wife Sandra Islip ABIPP are an extremely professional yet friendly wedding photography team. Having obtained an excellent level of qualification from the British Institute of Professional Photography and Guild of Photographers, as well as multiple WPPI International Awards of Excellence, the Islips are recognised as truly excellent practitioners. What sets this photography team apart from most others is the fact that you don't just get one highly-skilled photographer to capture the special day, but two! David and Sandra photograph every wedding together, ensuring that not a single significant moment will be missed.

The Photos

David and Sandra Islip's wedding photography is contemporary, sleek and elegant. Every single image wonderfully encapsulates the spirit of that wedding; the happiness, the joy, the humour, the love. The Islips are consummate masters at putting marrying couples and their guests at their ease, creating the relaxed, tender and beautiful shots every bride and groom would wish for.

Not only will couples receive wonderfully intimate shots of themselves enjoying their first moments as husband and wife, but they will also find a selection of candid images of their family and friends, individually and in groups, all enjoying the celebration. These often revealing narrative photos, mostly unposed, are full of personality and will be a great reminder of the merriment had by all.

Drawing on their wealth of experience, David and Sandra are extremely skilled at harnessing and making best use of all available natural light, to combine with the most advantageous areas of the venue in producing a range of naturally beautiful photographs.


David and Sandra Islip offer their brides and grooms a straightforward range of three standard packages to choose from. These offer graduated levels of coverage and presentation in order to suit the individual requirements and budgets of potential clients.


Their classic Storybook package will capture the complete story of the day, from the bridal preparations through to the speeches and the First Dance. This package includes both a printed storybook and a digital copy of all photographs that are fully printable.

The Standard Storybook is priced at £1875.
A Smaller Storybook is available at £1650.


The All-Inclusive package contains all the essential elements of the Storybook as described above, but with a few more luxurious extras such as real leather bindings for the storybook, a carrycase or storage sleeve and two 20x15cm Parent Album storybooks.

The All-Inclusive package is priced at £2450.


Finally, David and Sandra offer a Digital-Only package that's ideal for smaller occasions. Three-hour coverage will be provided at a single location within Essex, and all edited images will be supplied on a USB stick for you to print independently at your leisure.

The Digital-Only package is available at £850.

Extra items and Storybook options allow you to extend, enhance and tailor your package to your exact individual requirements.

    The best wedding photographers we know. David and Sandra done such a great job for our wedding four years ago that my sister booked them for her special day on Friday. Absolutely outstanding work and amazing couple. Thank you xx

  • Janine and Richard

    We choose David Islip photography to capture our magical day because David took an interest in our day he asked about us, what we wanted and about our wedding day, he gave me a quote based on what we required. Other photographers didn’t ask anything about us or our day but just gave us a price, I felt David made a quote feel more personal and he already cared about us and what we wanted. On the day David and his wife were amazing, they created an extremely relaxing and calm atmosphere. I wouldn’t hesitate in using their services again in the future, we are so so happy with our wedding album (I’m just looking at it again now and it makes me smile so very much how our day was captured so beautifully).

  • Lisa & Ross

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for photographing our wedding in July. The pictures are absolutely amazing and even looking back at them now make us smile. Any time anyone needs photographs we will be recommending you two! Even our guests commented on how great you both were.
