About Sam and Ollie

Photographers Based in Stafford, Staffordshire.

Since 2012, Sam and Ollie have worked internationally offering photography based services to a wide range of commercial clients as SO Visual Ltd. During this time, they were mindful of the wedding industry but aware that due to the nature of wedding photography they would need to slowly build their own style and approach, and not launch until completely satisfied that their service was something they could be proud of. In the wedding industry this is quite a difficult task! Taking every opportunity to gain experience they were able to learn how to maximise coverage with two shooters, develop their own editing style and create a portfolio that showcased what they can offer. 

In 2019, First Look officially launched! Sam and Ollie provide a relaxed, and unobtrusive wedding photography service. Wherever possible, they blend in to capture the real feel of the day, and when it does come to the bride and groom shots, they ensure this is done in a chilled out, timely manner with no pressure in any sense. In this day and age, with so much going on and so many guests to speak to during the day, they know couples don't want to be taken away for hours to be photographed! With SO Visual being well established and thriving, First Look is loosely limited to around 10 weddings per year. For you the client, this means you're not just another date in the calendar, you're getting a personable experience from two photographers that want to be there . For Sam and Ollie, it means they can have fun doing something they truly enjoy, provide a high quality service with a fast turnaround and also still have plenty of time with their families.
