Hi we’re Lee and Karen, together we make Willo Photography

So you know we’re a husband and wife photography team, but you might want to know what we are all about too. We love getting to know our couples, and it makes us smile when we rock up on your wedding day to see loads of the same books on your shelves, stacks of vinyl or even that you have the same kettle as us. It could be just one little thing or a load of big things, but we know connection is important. If your guests see you having a laugh with us we will get the best out of them. 

We’re not here to convince you how edgy and alternative we are to try and impress you. We’re us and you are you! We used to be Rock and Roll, now we’re a little bit more sausage roll.  Parenting and Netflix are cool though… right?  

What matters most though is that we’re both super-friendly, love a laugh, love people, love weddings and love taking photographs, but it does help to know what makes us tick. We got married in 2013 and never fell out of love with weddings. Three years later, our lives got flipped turned upside down in the best possible way, as we became parents through adoption to our beautiful little E, who has grown into the most loving and feisty four-year-old in the world. Our spare time is usually spent as a family and seeing the world through her eyes.   

about Lee…

Has been told he looks like Barry Gibb and Jack Black’s lovechild. We’ve also recently had Matt Berry too which is a new one – most of these are probably down to his really great beard which requires stroking at least 130 times a day. He is borderline obsessed with chicken wings and gardening. A retired drummer and reformed wild-child who loves George Harrison, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Plant and Shirley Bassey in equal measures. Will sit and watch shows about serial killers, classic horror movies and rambling history documentaries for hours on end. Spends too much time watching funny videos on his phone, and owns way too many records. 

Lee is 100% guaranteed to charm the socks off your aunties at your wedding.

about Karen…

The owner of blonde mega-fringe which hides a multitude of sins. Went brunette once in 2007, it lasted 3 days. Has been borderline (no pun intended) obsessed with Madonna since 1984 but has a huge affection for all forms of classic pop music and a not so secret love for 90’s RnB and musical theatre. Bookworm. Will be a cat lady until she dies, even though we no longer have a cat. Ravenclaw. House Lannister. Loves slasher flicks, chick-flicks and old Hollywood, and can hold entire conversations using only Mean Girls memes. Spends too much time on Instagram, usually posting photos of our little girl E or things we’ve made. 

Karen is 100% guaranteed to ugly cry at your wedding.

That’s pretty much what makes us Willo Photography, in a nutshell. We’re all about peace, love and family, so wedding photography is pretty much our dream job.
