FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I always get a buzz when it comes to transport! This has included running onto Marlow Bridge to pause the traffic and arranging with boat and bus companies for me to jump off early or late to capture photos 'on and off' to get the variety in storytelling that people think they'd need two photographers for!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, fun, candid, natural and timeless.

What about your business are you most proud of?

All of the kind words from couples make it rewarding as well as winning awards. My biggest achievement overall would be building my business from nothing after photographing a friend's wedding to earning living as a full time self-employed photographer.

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

If you're at the early stages of planning view lots of real weddings to get ideas for the type of venue you like, wedding day season and decorations. Once your venue is booked choose your suppliers early to secure them for your day. With my photography you can finalise your choice of package and timings 2-3 months before your wedding.

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

I love seeing all the creative table names linked to the couple's interests or wedding theme. Everything from places, castles, sporting venues, films, bands, Beatle's albums, flowers to reindeer names!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A detailed overview can be read on my website or please contact me to meet for a coffee. www.dianefrazerphotography.co.uk/overview

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

Couples should always tell the photographer about any extended family or close friends who are important to them or have travelled halfway around the world to be there. Unique combinations like this wouldn't be on the photographer's group photo template list. I always run through couple's requests at a pre-wedding meeting.

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

I had to photograph the groom and groomsmen getting ready to catch a chandelier falling from the ceiling! The Groom was an Only Fools and Horses fan! No-one (or the venue!) was harmed in the making this photo!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Make the most of it! It can create fun opportunities with umbrellas etc. For all days when the ground is soft I'd recommend a change of shoes (colourful wellington boots) for the bride for going outside for portraits to avoid heels sinking.

Describe how you got into photography.

Inspired by my Infant school teacher, I always wanted a career in art. I chose to go down the photography route whilst in Sixth Form. I've been a professional photographer since I graduated back in 2005 and chose to specialise in portraiture as I love meeting people. Once I had photographed one wedding I loved it! I've now photographed over 100!
