We are The Leapes….Martin and Charlotte/ Charlotte and Martin.

We live in Coventry with our daughter Martha and our cat BamBam. We got married on a Monday in May this year, which we inadvertently booked nine years to the day of our first date. Call it serendipity, we believe strange cosmic forces aligned and that we’re meant to be. Our first date was a Chrome Hoof gig at the Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath, Birmingham. We go to lots of gigs, love art, design and architecture.

The Leapes was born out of a mutual love of photography and a desire to spend more time with each other, we genuinely love working together and have the best fun. Our style, if we had to define it could be described as combining documentary, street, still life and portraiture to tell the story of your day with a beginning, middle and end, borrowing tricks from great cinematographers and filmmakers.
