Rangefinder rising star

Award Winning Documentary & Reportage Wedding Photographers Duo

UK & Destination Documentary Wedding Photographers

Welcome, we are Janina & Jawad Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars! Parents, best friends, travellers by heart and as our day jobs we are 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! We are not only travellers and food lovers and not your usual photographers, but we are storytellers, we document your day as and when it happens, capturing genuine moments and emotions with your favourite people.

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!

If you hate having photos taken – we hear you! Only image we have together is just a selfie we took in Italy.

Documentary Wedding Photographers

Award Winning Reportage & Documentary Wedding Photography

Documentary wedding Photography

Documentary, natural, reportage photography and cinematic videography has always been our passion for many years and we are so fortunate to be able to do it for living. Janina has featured in TOP 50 UK photographers by GoHen magazine, and Jawad has won many WPJA documentary wedding awards whilst falling in love with cinematic wedding videography. Between us we have won numerous awards such as This is Reportage, Top 50 This is Reportage worldwide photographers, Top 10 UK documentary wedding photographers 2022 by Photographers keeping It Real, Wedding Photojournalist Association TOP 100 International Photographers, Top 20 UK documentary wedding photographers, Masters of Photography UK & IR, Best 100 UK wedding photographers by SLR Lounge and most recently Janina and Jawad also featured TOP 100 Wedding Photographers by Your Perfect Wedding Photographer second year in the row. Recently we have been invited to join elite group of World Best Wedding Photos.

Our aim is to capture each wedding to not only show how it looked but how it felt to be there because photographs are so much more than just a ‘picture’. They are frozen in time moments.

As documentary wedding photographers we enjoy capturing the love, the fun, the crazy stuff that happens at the weddings. Kisses, belly laughs and tears! The bad dance moves, the good dance moves and auntie Belinda doing the worm at 1am! So in the future, when looking back at your photos you can step back in time and feel all the excitement, love and happiness from the day again. We want every image to feel authentically yours. As a reportage and documentary wedding photographers our aim is to capture all the important moments, unposed. Weddings are extremely personal and our job is to create a beautiful story from it, that is unique to you. We ultimately document you and your guests having the best time of your lives!

Photography is a story I fail to put into words
