“We really loved the photos and how you were able to capture every moment. Everyone loved having you around. You honestly only have amazing compliments from everyone. Thank you for being so easygoing and friendly, thank you for making our wedding such an easy process and for capturing our day to such a high standard. We’re so happy that we chose you!” – Shahanaz & Naz.
THE EXPERIENCE MATTERS AS MUCH AS THE END RESULT
Photos are like mirrors. If you feel weird, uncomfortable, awkward – the images will show it. If you don’t trust the person following you around all day with a camera – your gallery will show it. I want you to enjoy the experience of working with me as much as you do with your beautiful photo’s at the end of our collaboration.
“We’re so awkward and shy on-camera”. Sound familiar? I get it – me too! Would you believe that I’m yet to meet a couple who haven’t told me this? That’s why getting to know you is so important to me and starts from our very first coffee or phone call. Every single couple is different and I want to adapt how I shoot based on each and every one of you. Whether you’re adventurous souls wanting to jump into the sea, or shy folk who need some of my terrible jokes and relaxed prompts, capturing the essence of who you are and your personality is my main priority. Making you feel comfortable and at ease is my superpower.
I don’t take it for granted that I’m there on your wedding day. I know how important it is to you – and it is to me too. My care doesn’t stop at the photographs. I’m always here for a check-in, wedding advice, or even a cuppa if you’re local. Getting to know each other helps you be even more relaxed on camera, and that’s when the magic really happens.
I call my approach ‘style and story’.
My story documentary approach is at the heart of what I do. It’s so important for me to capture the intimate moments that can be so easily missed in all of the excitement. By getting to know you so well, through our meetings, social media interactions and our pre-wedding shoot, when it comes to your day you’ll be so familiar with me that I’m able to capture the perfect candid shots undetected and authentically. I’ll be an extended member of the bridal party.
I also think it’s important for you to have timeless portraits of you both to treasure. As a lover of old films, one of my favourite things about what I do is sending couples their portrait shots and having them tell me that they feel like movie stars. Making you feel good is so rewarding to me, and is always at the core of my work.
HOW IT WORKS
GET IN TOUCH
I can't wait to hear all about your wedding plans! I want to hear allll the details - I love a good wedding chat. Dresses, music, food - I'm all ears and open to recommending suppliers.
You've enquired, I've replied. Now we get to know each other! We can chat over emails, phone calls, or Zoom. Once you've signed your wedding agreement form and paid a deposit, you're all booked in and the fun stuff starts!
If you've added an engagement session to your package we'll get that booked in and find the perfect location. It's a perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other, help you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and take some beautiful photographs!
THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
Around a month before the big day, we'll get together virtually or in-person to go through your wedding day timeline, sort out the final details, and you can ask me any last minute questions or advice that have popped up.
YOUR WEDDING DAY
This is the time where I really want you to relax and be present. Trust in me that I'm going to capture your day to an amazing standard and enjoying every second. I've got you.
YOUR WEDDING GALLERY
As the wedding buzz is starting to return to normal, you'll receive your online gallery and be able to relive it over and over again, and see all the in-between moments that you missed. Keep an eye out for the post - your fine art prints will be on their way too! I have your gallery with you within 6 weeks and some sneak peeks within 48 hours - I get as excited as you to see them!
“Sophie is such an amazing photographer and person inside and out. She really gets to know you and what you want from your photos. To say we don’t like the camera, you made it so easy and it says it all in the results 😍 You went absolutely above and beyond on our day!” – Beth & James.
SOUND LIKE A GOOD MATCH?
It’s so important that you feel comfortable with me and trust my process so that you can relax on your day knowing that you’re in safe hands. It’s such an honour when someone chooses me to be a part of their big day. If it sounds like we’d be a good match – let’s talk!
