I’m a thirty year old mum, wife and photographer: my 3 full time jobs. Yorkshire tea, smelly cheese, design, nice hotels and apple products are at the top of my love list and I’m so determined to succeed that I sometimes drive myself crazy!
My Wedding Photography Style
I shoot clean, strong imagery with an emphasis on capturing emotion and composition. Im always looking for a moment or an unusual way to view something, so when people look at it they see it in a way they never expected. I try to find something amazing in every single image I take and that may be a viewpoint, a colour, strong lines, great light. These things are always at the top of my agenda.
I attract a lots of creative couples planning DIY weddings, inner city weddings or couples who just want natural, vibrant, interesting images. They’re usually really connected with each other and interesting too which makes for photographs full of life and character. Even if a couple is slightly nervous about being photographed though they always enjoy it in the end. I’m confident enough to say I could make any couple feel at ease. My ideal wedding would be one with lots of visual stimulation but that could be in the details, the colours, the guests, the scenery, the character of the couple, or even complete simplicity. I’m a sucker for an outdoor wedding too. A fairly rare occurrence in this part of the world!
Why Book Me?
I’m naturally artistic, I understand colour, composition and good quality, and I seem to have developed the ability to keep everyone calm and organised which can be a lifesaver I tell you! I get on with absolutely everybody and I can turn my hand to almost anything. I end up taking on all sorts of roles – personal bridal dressing assistant, official wedding time keeper, master of ceremonies if required… and I love it.
My biggest achievement to date is having my work featured in You & Your Wedding Magazine which you can see here. It really was one of those moments where I was ripping open the magazine at the counter of Tesco, telling all the staff to gather round! Scary and utterly amazing all at once. Also being a Fearless Photographer makes things kinda cool and getting shortlisted for Best Photographer in the regional Wedding Industry Awards is also a great achievement. I’m up for winning next time so it’s going to be a fun year!
Why I Love Being A Wedding Photographer
I thrive off the pressure of the day and the rewards are endless. Being with a couple during one of the most important moments of their lives is an unbelievable privilege. I also secretly love a great speech and often shed a small tear… I honestly couldn’t think of a better job in the world.
I use social media to attract new business and communicate with my potential and existing clients. Please follow me on Twitter and like my Facebook page to receive updates on my new work and help me expand my business. Thank you!
