Art & Life with Darren Hendry and Sarah Hendry

Today we’d like to introduce you to Darren Hendry and Sarah Hendry.

Darren, Sarah, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
There was no real grand plan behind how we started our business; one day we had one of those out of the blue conversations about how mundane and utterly uninspiring our lives were at that point. It was a bad case of wake up, work, eat, sleep, and we were really over that and wanted out. We spoke about doing more in the way of photography work and got really excited at the prospect that we could turn something that we loved doing into a business and make money from it. So, we stuck an ad up on our local advert website that night, got our first wedding booked up a couple of weeks after, shot it together, and have never looked back!

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
We’re photographers who predominantly shoot weddings, but we also dabble in a bit of fashion and portraiture too. Meeting new people, getting to work in the most amazing locations/venues and capturing happy couples’ sure beats working in an office from 9-5 every day.

You could say our style is very non-traditional and pretty offbeat. Our approach to shooting is simple; we’ll keep it mostly documentary (you can’t beat a good caught-off-guard expression), capture the action as it unfolds throughout the day, avoid cheesy clichés and let everyone have good old knees up without any interference from us. Essentially, we want to provide all of our client’s timeless photos that are different from the norm but really capture the essence of their day in the rawest way possible. We’re constantly pushing ourselves creatively and are incredibly passionate about telling unique stories for each couple, so we aim to go into each wedding with a clear mind and eyes wide open. If we could describe our work in four words they would be the following: Natural. Emotive. Creative. Honest. We’re also suckers for some awesome light.

In your view, what is the biggest issue artists have to deal with?
Comparing ourselves to others! Comparisons break down your self-confidence and inevitably you don’t ever progress in what you do because of the doubt you feel. We’ve had to switch off from social media at times as we’ve been completely guilty of this. It happens to all artists – whatever their field – whether they would like to admit it or not.
