About us

We first met at the start of 2014 through a mutual friend on social media and instantly got on as we a shared so many of the same interests and we were both keen photographers. Lee was a approached to shoot a friends wedding and asked me if I would like to help him out. Our first official wedding together.

We enjoyed it so much we decided to enter the crazy world of wedding photography and our new business was born.

Hi, I’m Graeme. The ‘Humpston’ part of Humpston and Bull!!

I’ve always been a bit of a nerd when it comes to tech but I didn’t get my first DSLR until 2011 for when my first child was born; I was instantly hooked. When I first started out I photographed almost everything from landscape to motorsport, still life to portraiture as I enjoy all aspects of photography but it was portraiture that really inspired me. I find it so rewarding when you capture an image that literally tells a story without a single word.

Want to know a little more about me, here are some of my favourite things:

  • My Fiancee Lois and my children Eddy & Greta 🙂
  • Anything Apple – Self confessed geek!
  • Never say no to some fine food & nice wine
  • Motorsport – definitely a bit of a petrol head
  • Spotify – Dare I say it but whats a CD?!  We don’t even have a CD Player anymore!
  • Netflix – Defo like a good boxset (if Paw Patrol isn’t on)
  • Being out and about in the countryside and tackling the odd mountain.
  • Skiing, I have only been once but can’t wait to do it again.
  • Cycling with the family – proudest dad moment watching my little boy riding without his stabilisers for the first time!

and I’m Lee! The ‘Bull’ side of the partnership (If you hadn’t already worked that out using process of elimination!!)

I liked photography from an early age but I didn’t buy my first SLR untill I was about 18. Since then, I caught the photography bug good and proper and now I just love making pictures. From working in award winning studios and doing yearly nursery shoots to Photographing some big named DJs in nightclubs, I have come to settle in wedding photography. Its more rewarding than anything I’ve shot before. Making people cry with happiness when they see their pictures is a blessing and it gives me the biggest buzz!

Here’s a little bit more about me

  • I live with my wife to be, Adele & daughter, Erin
  • Currently planning my own wedding for 2018
  • My working background is design & large format print
  • Certified Photoshop user
  • I’m also a self confessed Apple geek (I have Graeme to blame for this)
  • Favourite food is Chicken Tikka Masala
  • I enjoy nothing more than a cup of tea and a good film
  • I ran the Derby Ramathon a few years ago. 13.1 miles!

Group Shot

The concept is primarily aimed at Wedding Photographers but donations and involvement are welcome from other wedding industry suppliers, wedding bloggers, and also clients.

The Wedding industry is valued at well over one billion pounds in the UK alone; the actual cost of the wedding, photographer, honeymoon, and then on top guest expenses and trade events, you can see how it easily adds up.

There are hundreds of articles online about the breakdown of cost so I won’t go into that, but with 250,000 weddings each year just a simple tenner from each wedding we play a part of could make a huge difference. To be clear, I’m not asking for £10 from each wedding or even from each of you reading this, I simply want to convey the potential…

Each wedding will have a collection of suppliers; photographers, dresses, cars, make-up, florist and venues, to name a but a few, if each of us just dropped even £1 per booking it would all add up. Imagine, £10 x 250,000 weddings, that’s £2.5 million quid without breaking a sweat!
