Good to meet you

    We're your potential stalkers for the day, collecting quality blackmail material on your family and friends

    ...or as most wedding photographers say “capturing timeless memories on your special day to treasure forever”.

    If we’re honest; we’re mischief makers, not the zany “quirky” in your face types but if the groom is about to be stitched up by the groomsmen, we’re probably in on the joke already. We love it when the bridal prep soundtrack is explicit gangster rap and your mum has to tell everyone off for swearing or when the bridesmaids cause an absolute scandal on the dance floor.

    We love creativity, colour and when couples go their own way and do what makes them happiest.

    We meet some of the nicest, most genuine people who trust us with their photography. We like a dark sense of humour and when people pick something random like The Pixies for their first dance or walk down the aisle to "Jump in the line" from Beetlejuice. Our favourite ceremony had personalised vows, with the groom writing his very own sci-fi story about how he met his bride.

    Since you're considering letting us into your lives on such an important day that you need a photographer, it's only fair that we tell you a little bit about ourselves.

    Let’s face it. Wedding photographers are weirdos.

    They turn up on the day, befriend a bunch of strangers and photograph them when they’re vulnerable. They love it when people cry, or fall over or generally do something weird because that make the best photos. We’re no different to other photographers in that respect.

    We’re probably worse, actually.


    Long story short…

    We have had to make a few changes to our business so when you book Cluskey Smith Weddings, your primary photographer is Alex. Jenni has taken a step back from photographing weddings due to our growing family and caring for our autistic little boy. She is still very much part of the business, taking care of bookings and orders from home. If you would like to know more, we wrote about it here.

    TLDR Cluskey Smith Trivia

    • We met in Spiders Nightclub in Hull, 2006 and got married in Prague, 2015.
    • We’ve been photographing weddings since 2010.
    • Our favourite cocktail is a Black Russian (do not give Jenni a Mai Tai unless you want to hear her terrible array of foreign accents).
    • We have a little boy who’s middle name is Trouble, his favourite songs are Peace in Mississippi by Jimi Hendix and for some inexplicable reason, Flashlight by Parliament.
    • We have a baby girl with the brightest smile and is an avid fan of house music. Having two children is wild.
    • Our cats are called Winnie and Beetlejuice.
    • The song Toto Africa follows Alex literally everywhere he goes (yes, really).
    • Jenni’s alter ego is Wednesday Addams.


    • Alex spirit animal is Ron Swanson.
    • We once did shots of “monkey snot” with Dara Ó Briain from Mock the Week (rock and roll innit)
    • Alex’s guilty pleasure is listening to Taylor Swift (much to Jenni’s disapproval) UPDATE “Shake it off” apparently isn’t too bad.
    • Our favourite films include The Crow, Dazed and Confused, Empire Records, The Blues Brothers and Dogma
    • We recently did one of those DNA ancestry things: Jenni who thought she was Italian is actually mostly Greek. Alex is mostly Czech and also is in fact more Italian than Jenni. Probably not very interesting but it explains why Jenni always felt the film “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” was basically a documentary about her family.
