Weddings

 

You could say that I’m a sentimental, emotionally literate, nostalgic sort of girl.

You could also say that I love weddings because I believe in marriage. And you’d be right.

My style of wedding photography is best described as authentic, creative and pretty storytelling. Some people call that fine art documentary photography. What does that mean? It means that I like simply beautiful images and elegant details and I am drawn to genuine moments and flattering light. It means that most of the time I am recording moments as they happen in a natural way but I will photograph the details in a feminine, classic way. Other words for my style of photography that you might have come across are photojournalism, reportage, candid, storytelling, editorial and lifestyle.

I am an approachable people person first. My sociable nature allows me to blend in with your guests to record those unguarded moments of people being themselves. Some of my clients have been surprised to find that I come from a legal background. Others have noticed that my professional training, high standards and experience with client care sets me apart from other photographers. It means that working confidently and methodically in a discrete and respectful way comes naturally to me but more importantly that I’ll really look after you.

It is important to me that as well as photographing the people and moments that make your day uniquely yours, that the style and location of your wedding is reflected in your photographs. The biggest compliment we received at our wedding was that it had a tangible sense of place. That’s not a phrase you often hear but it meant the world to my husband and I. This is what I want people to identify in your wedding photographs. I know how much thought you have put into all of your choices and how you’ll want to see this in your final collection of images.

People book me because they look forward to their wedding being recorded in a style that they love, so I’ll offer light direction during the part of your day when we’re creating portraits of you and your families. I strive to create the kind of portraits you and your loved ones will want to frame and enjoy for generations to come.

I am based in Southwell, near Nottingham but travel all over the East Midlands, the UK and abroad.

 

Wedding day coverage from £1500

 

When I photograph a full wedding, your coverage starts from your final preparations on the day of the wedding right through to the speeches or the first dance and into the evening. You decide how long you’d like me to stay.

There is a choice of albums, prints and digital files. For the full experience you can have an engagement session and a second photographer at your wedding. The decisions are uniquely yours. Whatever you choose, you’ll receive the same first class service and beautiful luxurious images.

 

Intimate Weddings from £550

 

I specialise in shorter coverage and smaller weddings. Not everyone wants or needs their photographer to be there all day.

Are you planning an intimate wedding or elopement? Do you just want 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours coverage? I love this kind of wedding.

If the style of your wedding or the size of your budget means you’d like to find a photographer doesn’t just offer full day rates, I can put together something bespoke for you.

Your Album and prints

 

10 inch

6 inch

 

I offer UK made photograph albums from Folio in a range of luxurious covers and beautiful prints from my chosen professional lab, to share your story.

When you are investing in professional photography I do not believe that you are only paying me for the ability to scroll through files on your phone or computer. I believe that you are paying me to create an end product that will give you something tangible to hold onto. Something to look at not just now but with future generations and to pass on to people who aren’t even born yet.

Albums and prints are in my view the only reason that you should consider having a professional photographer. They are luxurious in the way that they look and feel, I only use the best, but they are not a luxury reserved only for other people. You deserve them because your printed photographs will be as important to you as they were for the generations before you. Something I’m told regularly by my clients is that even after viewing their images on my website they were surprised that their pictures were even better when they received their album and prints from me. An image, however beautiful, achieves barely a fraction of its true worth unless and until it is printed. And printed well.

What my experience, both personal and feedback from previous clients, tells me is this. A usb, whilst great as a back up, will inevitably be relegated to the back of a drawer somewhere, rather than for making the piles of prints and albums you think you’ll have time to make. Even for the keenest among us, who do find the time to choose, design and order our own albums and prints, I can almost guarantee that the quality of what’s available to the public will not be a patch on a professional product. I know, because I’ve tried them myself.

So, after the day has been and gone, let me take the hassle out of future proofing your memories for you. Things of beauty that you’ll want to bring out, hold onto and share.
