Award Winning Documentary & Reportage Wedding Photographers Duo

Welcome, we are Janina & Jawad Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars! Parents, friends, and multi award winning documentary wedding photographers.

We want you to relax, have the most amazing wedding day and not be worried about posing for photos! With us there is no cliché, no cheesy posing. We are not only travellers and food enthusiast, and for sure not your usual photographers, but we are storytellers, we listen, we observe creatively document your day as and when it happens, capturing genuine, unique moments and emotions with your favourite people. As documentary and natural wedding photographers we know that best wedding photos aren’t necessarily the perfect pictures, but these which makes you feel. Ultimately, your wedding day is about having fun and creating lasting memories. We tell the story of your day in a relaxed, natural and most importantly, fun way.

We met photographing a wedding together and decided to combine our strengths. Jawad is a good driver and Janina is a patient passenger so together we will go anywhere for our couples. Destination wedding photography has taken us to stunning weddings across the UK, Scottish Highlands, Italy, Spain & Poland. We love having good laugh and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Life is too short! With us you are investing in our presence as your dedicated creatives throughout your wedding day and sometimes friends for life! We don’t simply reserve dates to hire any photographer to cover our weddings, and we certainly don’t provide a standard set of cookie-cutter wedding photos. What you receive is our undivided attention and creativity fully devoted to capturing your wedding uniquely. We wholeheartedly put our biggest effort to make your memories truly exceptional.

If you’re camera-shy, rest assured that we empathise! Even our only joint picture is a casual selfie from Italy.
