>> Hi, we are Jim & Kerri <<
// The faces behind Dearest Love photography are Jim & Kerri, Hi! We are two best buds, (no we’re not a couple and we’re not married, although everyone always assume we are, so we will forgive you if you thought we were!) Kerri is more like Jim’s annoying little sister! We are a photography duo based in Worcestershire, capturing epic weddings, family, portrait, pregnancy, new-born and special occasions.
// We met at Hereford Art College whilst studying for our photography degrees back in 2007! (Man, that makes us feel old!) We became best buds and worked well due to Jim’s technical geekiness and Kerri’s arty creativeness. We joined forces officially in 2012 and formed Dearest Love Photography. The name came together inspired by a vintage love letter. We love capturing love, and our photos are all about love, so there it is. The name has stuck with us all these years (10+!)
// We love creating photos and memories that are a little bit different. Quirky, dreamy, chilled out, epic love stories are our JAM. We love capturing people’s unique personalities and enhancing everything great about them.
If you’d like to work with us, please drop us a message!

The absolutely exceptional, kind, calming, lovely Kerri and Jim from Dearest Love Photography are the most brilliant photographers you could possibly ask for; neither my husband or I particularly enjoy having our pictures taken, but Jim and Kerri put us completely at ease, and captured so many moments that weren't posed at all but that are now our fondest memories of the day. We also really enjoyed spending the day with Kerri and Jim, they offered lots of really helpful guidance without being intrusive.

The lovely Kerri from Dearest Love recently photographed a wedding at our venue (Belcote Farm) and we were blown away with the result! Kerri is professional, friendly and a joy to work with. She captured the most stunning photos of the couple, making the most of our tipi venue and capturing some really creative shots around the farm that we would never have thought of! Will be recommending her to our prospective couples and hope to have her back soon!

Where to begin, the whole journey from our first contact with Dearest Love to receiving our Wedding Photos has been an absolute dream.
We met Jim and he instantly made us feel relaxed, the engagement photos were perfect and we knew that we wanted him to shoot our wedding. On the wedding day, Jim was incredible. He has such a friendly and calming vibe. The photos are absolutely incredible and we will cherish them forever. Jim came to us as a photographer but left as a friend. We would highly recommend.
