Hi and welcome to Justin Krause Photography & Film.
We are based in Somerset in the South West of England and are available to travel all over the UK and internationally. The business was originally started by myself, Justin and I capture the majority of weddings as a solo shooter. My wife, Emily, also a super talented photographer, can be available for certain dates and locations to help with Wedding Photography when we need two photographers. Together, Emily and I have an incredible 10 year old Daughter, Matilda, who has also caught the photography bug (in between Roblox and being a Tween), has her very own DSLR and has even undertaken her own paid baby sessions! We also have a group of trusted freelance photographers, video content creators, graphics designers, web developers and experienced (and importantly - legally) CAA Approved and Qualified Drone/UAV Pilots who we can call on when required for wedding work and who we work with over at our Commercial Photography & Film Production House, IMPACT 20twenty. We approach all of our work from the perspective of everyday life, bringing enthusiasm and positive resourcefulness that we hope you can see reflected in our work.
The last few years has seen our business head in exciting directions and from strength to strength. We’ve captured weddings all over the southwest of England, around the UK and even further afield. From Wessex to Waterloo, Cornwall to Kensington, Mayfair and Soho to Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Kent, West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire to Snowdonia and Anglesey in North Wales and the Western Highlands and islands of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland to Corfu & Crete in Greece and across to Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and the Canadian Rockies and we've made many life-long friends along the way!
We have recently added incredible Wedding Films to our portfolio by linking with a couple of fantastic film makers aswell as shooting them ourselves when we aren't booked to capture the photography. Our freelancers can work to our style for additional wedding, portrait and commercial work if myself and Emily are already booked elsewhere.
Meet some of the Team (and Behind The Scenes)
Genuinely caring about every wedding and portrait session we do and learning everything we can about each one (what makes you tick, if you will), ensures a level of attention to detail that's second to none. We love and embrace the fact that every wedding and every portrait session we're booked for is unique. We use this love of all we do to capture and bring out your true personalities through our imagery. Creating and portraying your story in the given time we have is ingrained in us and we love seeing the reactions - the smiles, the cheers, the laughs and tears (of happiness) - our work receives!
Wedding Photography is a huge part of our business and has been branded "Photography by Justin & Emily" for a number of years, however, with the addition of more creatives to our team we will be dropping this after 2020 with it all staying under the Justin Krause umbrella - it's just less confusing for everyone! If you're looking for wedding photographers...we've been in your shoes. We know exactly what planning a wedding is like! You can literally ask us anything about weddings.
With 11 years of being in the wedding and portrait industry we don't like to bang on about it because to be honest, as amazing as it all is, we just love taking photos and film of amazing people having the time of their lives, no matter where on the planet it is and having fun ourselves! We know that we simply aren't everyones photographers, just as not every couple looking for wedding photography is our couple. But since you asked... We have been recognised at the Wedding Industry Expert Awards having been awarded Best Wedding Photographers in our area for 2 years running, featured in Vogue Magazines sister global wedding magazine, BRIDE and in a number of other publications, nominated at the Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards, and as a Peer for those fledging businesses starting out in the wedding photography industry and even nominated and a Finalist at the Muddy Stilettos Lifestyle Awards. Apart from a baby being born at a wedding and one of the important people not turning up at a wedding I'm fairly sure we've seen it all! ....and yes...this COVID pandemic is getting unbearable. We have poor couples who have postponed three times now!
