I’m Sacha, People and Photography are my passion. Growing up I loved to take holiday photos to create albums for friends and family, I still love to look back on these albums, re-living the memories. When Andy and I started ALS photography it was a dream come true to create those lasting reminders of happy times for our customers, seeing their delight when they see their portrait or wedding images for the first time is so rewarding and one of the best parts of my job! My love of travel has taken me around the UK and the rest of the world, seeing fantastic sights, meeting people from countries far and wide. I truly believe that I have the best job in the world, working in partnership with my husband allows me to combine my creative flair with meeting new people and capturing special moments for memories that last a lifetime. When not photographing you will mainly find me hanging out with our family and good friends and I love nothing more than catching up over a lovely meal and a glass of fine red wine!
Hi! I'm Andy, Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Back before the digital age, when I was a youngster, I'd save my pocket money to buy my first SLR camera and then head out to shoot everything I deemed worthy of a click. Fueled by my teenage hobby of surfing I developed a desire to travel, experience and document the different landscapes, nature and cultures of the world. Travelling to some of these amazing countries helped me appreciate our own beautiful back yard with its diversity of coast, seascape, mountains and rolling countryside! As I honed my photography skills, I discovered a love for photographing people, so to us, it was the obvious and natural avenue to explore! So that was it, I changed the dusty steelworks for the cleaner environment of many gorgeous locations and venues for outdoor portraits and weddings and A.L.S Photography was born!
