Full Description
  • I’m Helen Lisk, a photographer based in in the South West and I have been photographing weddings full time for over six years. Creating beautiful images for people is something that I absolutely love doing and weddings are such a perfect opportunity to do this.  Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and everyone deserves to have a really wonderful set of images to hold those memories. Photographs that don't just show how things looked, but really capture the essence of the day. Really great images of the important people and the interactions between them, the laughter, the fun, the tears. Natural and genuine shots of you as a couple together, just being yourselves, captured in the most beautiful way, together on your wedding day. Images that you can look back on for years to come and remember how things felt at the time.  If you are looking for relaxed and genuine photography that you hardly notice happening, that reflects things as you actually remember them, and that provides you with a truly beautiful record of your wedding day, then let’s have a chat about your plans. I’d really love to hear from you!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Creative, natural, real, inventive, unique!
What about your business are you most proud of?
I am very proud of the great relationships I've created with my clients.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Please take time to make sure you get this decision right – start looking early and avoid making a last minute panic booking. Photographers get booked up very far in advance, so make sure you leave yourselves plenty of time. Look at lots of photographers, make sure you see full weddings from start to finish, and go with the one who really wows you with their images but also feels like someone that you will be comfortable with. Above all, go with your heart and choose the photographer who feels right for you.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My main aim is to present the real story of your wedding, to show the genuine emotions and moments that occur. I will mostly photograph your day in a reportage style, capturing what is actually happening and providing a record of the real elements of the day. I will also include some portraits of you as a couple, which will involve more direction, and I am happy to carry out some formal groups as necessary.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I will usually arrange to meet up with you both and have a chat through your photography requirements and wedding details – I love to hear about everything you are planning! If you live a long way away it may be more convenient to do this via Skype or FaceTime, or we can chat over the phone if you'd prefer. This is a really good opportunity to talk about what you would like to include in your photography, and any particular requests you may have. We can then also schedule your engagement photo session if you are having one. I am always happy to answer queries at any point, and I will always get in touch during the week before your wedding, just to have a final chat before the big day.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The photos with the people that matter to you. These don't have to be posed or interrupt your day, but make sure you have a selection of images that help you remember all those important people that shared your day with you, and so that you can see how much your day meant to them. A good photographer will always do this for you.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
I will always discuss bad weather plans with you before the wedding, so that we all know what plan B is! But I also enjoy working with the weather, and if you don’t mind being a little adventurous, the light just after the rain can look really stunning! Even sheltering in a torrential downpour has tremendous romantic potential. I carry white and ivory wedding umbrellas, old throws to cover muddy ground and protect your dress, a range of professional lighting options, and basically refuse to be beaten by the British weather! But I absolutely promise not to force you outside if you'd rather stay in. When we had record rainfall during this wedding, we just found some fantastic indoor locations for the photos instead.
