Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Josephine Gray
Welcome and congratulations! How wonderful to hear you are planning a wedding! I believe that a wedding photographer is not just about the day which is why I include a pre-wedding consultation, research fully your venue for light/ locations at your specific time of year, offer a post-wedding consultation and generally keep in touch! I will be with you every step of the way and you can contact me at any point if you have any questions, concerns or bright ideas. xxx Josephine

Location & Contact Details
St Albans, Hertfordshire, England
I travel anywhere to capture a wedding, based in Hertfordshire means I am central to cover all areas, Essex, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Kent, Hampshire, Dorset, London the South East, Devon, Cornwall, UK and beyond. Destination weddings too.
What is your most memorable wedding?
All my weddings are unique, special and memorable for different reasons: I absolutely love being part of your wedding day and capturing fabulous photos for you....Katy for her laughter and sense of fun and being at Pembroke Lodge, Richmond Park, with the deer baying all evening, Sophie serene and pretty at Broxbourne, Chloe in her gorgeous princess gown and train, Carol for her tears and sense of humour, Ian & Jommie for their vibrancy, Sue and Brian because Sue has been so unwell and so it was a very special day to celebrate all the good things so far, and so the list can go on and on - each one unique and so special.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
natural, relaxed, romantic, captured in the moment, style and including a guided / naturally posed, complimentary portrait session for bride and groom with each booking.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I understand planning a wedding can sometimes be a challenge - I do my best to ensure that photography is something you do not need to worry about. And I do this by keeping in touch between booking and wedding date, by researching/refreshing your chosen venue for light and location at your particular time of year, and by offering advice and posing/guidance tips especially for those who are not usually very keen to have their photograph taken, so that on your wedding day, you are relaxed about photography, and can enjoy your day.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Photographing weddings is not like any other type of photography - there are no second chances, lighting conditions can change by the second, and you will want to be sure that your most significant and special parts of your wedding can be captured for you. Choosing a full-time professional wedding photographer is the best way to ensure that you have beautiful photographs of your day to cherish for now and for the future.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Each wedding I have photographed has been a unique love story, shared among family and friends. Each special day has its own personal touch, perhaps in the way of remembering absent friends or family, or by weaving the hobbies and interests of the bride and groom through the theme of the day, or simply by the choice of colours being the bride and grooms favourites or the choice of flowers in the bouquet, or the bride and groom portrait photo session being in a location that has special meaning for the wedding couple - each one special. Every wedding magnificent and memorable and different from the last.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Please get in touch, I'd love to hear all about your plans for your day. Let's check availability and please ask any questions about the process or any help or advice you may need. When you are happy to go ahead, then the booking can be confirmed and your date held on the receipt of a booking deposit fee.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Just the two of you, and your photographer, to capture some lovely natural photographs of you both naturally just being together. Plan to include 30/40 minutes for a more personal portrait session - it can give you a break from all the whirl of the wedding day and a chance to relish some quiet moments together as newly weds.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Every wedding is unique, and so all photographs are original and a unique capture of the special moments that happen that day. I am looking forward to creating a fishing theme into the portraits soon.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
No need to worry - rainy days are no problem - I am skilled and trained to capture lovely photographs whatever the weather. Bring flat shoes or even wellies and hitch up your skirts for a few outside photographs that wont ruin your shoes! It is all part of your unique wedding day story. Have a few plain pale umbrellas handy as they can add a splash of fun to the photographs (I usually have some on board anyway)
Describe how you got into photography.
My grandparents and parents were portrait photographers, my cousins, and sister are artists, my children study graphic design and art. My life has always been surrounded by creativity and art and photography has always been a passion in my life.
