Tony & Carol | Oakhouse Photography
Hi, we’re Tony and Carol and we’re passionate about photography, and about Oakhouse Photography! Our business came into being at around the same time as the birth of our son, who is now 8 years old. We decided to follow a life long passion for photography as we love working on location in natural light. We even love the challenges the British weather throws at us!
Family is important to us, and so photographing weddings and family shoots is a real pleasure. We live in Kent with our two children. Our relationship was cemented over a shared love of Häagen-Dazs ice-cream. When Tony proposed just after midnight one New Year’s Day it was a definite ‘yes’, and we married two years later at The Archbishop’s Palace in Maidstone. Our winter wedding was perfect, other than our vintage wedding car breaking down in Maidstone’s one-way system! We were 45 minutes late getting to the blessing and arrived in a taxi!
