Tom Wishart & Murray Lambert – Wedding Photographers

Wedding photographe­rs are the storytelle­rs of your special day, capturing the moments that will be­ cherished foreve­r. At one thousand words Photography we like to think of ourselves as a duo of talented professional wedding photographers: Tom Wishart and Murray Lambert.

Tom Wishart

I’ve always had a passion for photography, thanks to my mother who was a photography teacher. She introduced me to pinhole cameras when I was just three years old. My training as a photojournalist has given me a deep appreciation for capturing the authentic essence of people and their emotions. As part of the one thousand words photography team, I really enjoy experimenting with innovative techniques to incorporate into my wedding photography.

Murray Lambert

My true passion is creative photography, which I developed during my photography studies at Falmouth University. As an experienced documentary photographer, I’ve had the honor of capturing moments around the world, but I’m grateful to call Swanage, Dorset my home. I’ve committed myself to refining my skills as a documentary wedding photographer, collaborating with Tom as part of the one thousand words wedding photography team.

We­ are dedicated to immortalizing your love­ story through natural and timeless images. We do this through de­eply appreciating the ge­nuine essence­ of people and their e­motions. We take pride in our ability to capture­ the true spirit of your wedding day.

As proud me­mbers of the one thousand words photography, we bring a wealth of expe­rience and expe­rtise in innovative technique­s to create stunning wedding photographs that re­flect your unique style and pe­rsonality.

Wedding Photographers In Dorset – A Perfect Duo

We aren’t just two Dorset wedding photographers who happen to work together – we’re best friends. We have a deep love for the beautiful Dorset countryside and Jurassic Coast where we live. Exploring the hills and beaches on our mountain bikes, and going camping together are cherished hobbies of ours. It’s not all about wedding photography. As parents ourselves, we find great joy in raising our families in this seaside town. We also volunteer our photographic skills to support our local community, charities, sports clubs, and independent businesses.

What Brides & Grooms Say About Wedding Photographers

About Trusted Wedding Photographers

“one thousand words wedding photography did an outstanding job of capturing our special day.

Leading up to the wedding & Murray were really good at communication, we had to delay twice (thanks Covid) but the guys were great with the rearrangements. Afterward kept us up to date on when we’d receive sneak peeks and final photos.

They were an absolute delight on the day, Tom was promoted to an honorary bridesmaid as he was on hand to help out with flowers and hair and was definitely “one of the girls”. We trusted them 100% on the day and were totally open to their suggestions and we have been rewarded with the most amazing photos. We have so many that are our “favourite” we really are spoilt for choice.”
