We love Somerset and we love capturing weddings in our stunning county! From Somerset and the southwest, throughout the UK and worldwide we are pushing the name of Somerset and it's relaxed ethos international. We love to travel and capture Destination Wedding Photography having captured weddings, portraits and commercial photography from Europe to North America and Asia but closer to home, Newborn and Family Portrait Photography is a huge staple of our portfolio! We are also undertaking an increasing amount of Commercial Photography and film work which you can see on our main site at JustinKrause.co.uk.
If you're here it's likely you're looking for a Photographer in Somerset or you're planning a trip to Somerset and you're looking for things to do in our stunning county.
In the future we hope to see this site become a great asset for those looking to visit Somerset; to aid with the county's tourism using the photographs we've taken whilst living here. You'll find links to many sites and more will be added along the way.
Somerset has so much to see and do from the rolling hills to the levels to the unspoilt sand dunes and long sandy beaches of Brean and Berrow, Steart and the amazing rocky beaches around Kilve (where prehistoric fossils can be found if you're lucky!).
If it's history you're after then you're spoilt rotten. Legends of Merlin and King Arthur at Glastonbury to King Alfred the Great, Medieval Castles in Taunton and the ever impressive Dunster to the ruins of Farleigh Hungerford Castle and Nunney Castle are just the tip of spear. Then there's Bath, a World Heritage Site since 1987, a separate entry entirely! Somerset is also the site of the last pitched battle on English soil at Westonzoyland - The Battle of Sedgemoor.
Somerset and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty go hand in hand. There is so much beautiful landscape and scenery in Somerset - from the marshlands and Somerset Levels , multiple hill ranges of The Quantocks, Mendips, Blackdowns, Poldens and Brendans to Exmoor with the stunning Lorna Doone Valley , Valley of the Rocks , Tarr Steps and idylic villages such as Porlock, Lynton & Lynmouth . We've taken photographs in so many of these places and this site is an opportunity to compile them all in one place....eventually.
Did we mention Glastonbury Festival?

Our main photography work covers weddings, portraits, events and commercial work not only around Somerset but also all over the UK and internationally. If you know anyone getting married, anywhere in the world, please show them our work on our main page here (we have great incentives for those who refer us).
Above is some work we captured for the owners of Windmill Retreat. They wanted to show the tranquility of the area where there were to build their holiday homes. Our photographs above are some of our favourite we've taken and the resulting holiday homes from the Windmill Retreat are spectacular - 5* luxury accommodation in Somerset. We're hopefully working with them again soon!
The footage above was shot in and around the location of our Studio at Currypool Mill, just outside of Cannington, near Bridgwater in Somerset. The stunning orchard is available for us to use for photoshoots.
