Full Description
I'm Becky Harley, a natural wedding and portrait photographer based in Hertfordshire. I love natural, documentary-style photography, and I love to focus on the special moments and emotions between people, so my images aren’t really very posed. For your couples shots (and for your engagement shoot), I offer simple direction to allow your happiness and relationship to shine through. I like to spend my time at your wedding capturing the essence of what your day is all about, including the details, flowers and pretty things, as well as the funny, tender, and emotional moments between you and your guests – and all the little things you might have missed during the whirlwind that is your wedding day!

Simply the best
Becky is incredible! Despite having to reschedule 3-4 times because of COVID, Becky was extremely accommodating and even worked up until her due date to schedule us in! She was creative and very professional and made my husband and I laugh and feel so comfortable during our shoot. Can not recommend her enough!

Becky is so lovely and has such a talent for capturing the natural emotion
I've worked with Becky on a few occasions at the Engage weddings wedding planning parties and she is so lovely. She captures all the natural moments and emotion with such skill. She really cares about her couples so it's no surprise she's booked nearly every weekend.

Really enjoyed working with Becky
Enjoyable and relaxing to work with, brilliant at staging for photos, keeps the journey of working with her company moving along with gentle reminders of key dates and 'to do's' - very useful when extremely busy with so much else! Excellent presentation of engagement and wedding photo books... and so much else besides. Really enjoyed working with Becky from beginning to end.

She captured our wedding perfectly
Becky is a very friendly and makes you feel very at ease in front of the camera. She captured our wedding perfectly, really capturing the essence of the day. Becky was very efficient in ensuring that the things we wanted photos off were taken i.e. table décor, formal photos with family and friends etc. I love that Becky's photos are natural and not posed for. Becky has been absolute delight to deal with and her service has been outstanding. I would highly recommend Becky as a winner as she really did deliver on our wedding day with our photos. We can't stop looking at that. We now have beautiful photos to look back on and remember our very special day.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

It's really hard to pick just one, but I always enjoy rustic barn weddings, or weddings in marquees. I love to see how each couple put their own spin on a blank canvas! There was one in a little village hall that was a converted barn, which had some gorgeous pops of yellow to brighten up a drizzly day, the flowers, bridesmaids dresses and even the bride's dress brought a lot of sunshine to the day!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Timeless, relaxed, natural, fun, bright

What about your business are you most proud of?

I love the fact that I can document the most special moments in couples lives, and capture the joy and happiness of a wedding day.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

As a recent bride myself, I know what you're going through! Make lots of lists! (I love lists!) And try not to stress about the little things, everything will come together on the day!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A wedding I shot at recently had a Star Wars theme running throughout the whole day! It wasn't really obvious or too geeky, but incorporated into all the other pretty details and elements of the day. They walked out of the ceremony to the Star Wars theme, all their tables were named after Star Wars characters, there were lightsabers on the dancefloor (some AMAZING evening shots!) and the cake was totally epic - Han Solo and Princess Leia on top, and characters depicted in icing on the back!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once you've booked me (I ask for a 40% booking fee and return of a couple of forms) we'll be in touch to arrange your engagement shoot - this is offered complimentary in both of my packages. Once we've had the engagement shoot I provide all images on an online gallery for you to download. Then, depending on your location, we'll have a pre-wedding consultation 6 weeks before the wedding where we'll go through the day plan and I'll note down all the info of how the day will run and any specific thing you'd like me to capture. I always like to have a quick phone call in the week before the wedding too, to make sure everything's running smoothly and check if there are any last minute changes to the plan!

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I think if it's possible to do it logistically, getting a confetti shot is a fantastic addition to the album.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I mentioned this above but I'd say capturing shots of the bride and groom with lightsabers is a pretty unusual one!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

A lovely white umbrella! Seriously, they make for some lovely shots snuggled up under a brolly!

Describe how you got into photography.

I've always loved photography from a really young age - my parents used to give me disposable cameras to take photos, and I recently found an album of pictures I took at Disneyland Paris - aged 4! Photographs have always been important to me as I grew up, I loved to take my camera everywhere with me. Then when I got married I loved the whole world of weddings so much that it was a natural progression to move into wedding photography! I love having the opportunity to share such a special day in so many people's lives, and to create special images that will be treasured for years to come.
