Full Description
My passion for working with people and desire to take beautiful photographs complement my natural ability to capture spontaneous moments as they happen and always get the best out of my subjects. My approach to your shoot will be personal and enjoyable. I like to capture a real feel for what is going on and record things as they happen. Whilst making everyone feel comfortable and confident with the use of some very casual posing and using the most flattering of natural light where possible, you will feel at ease and calm throughout, safe in the knowledge that your best side is always taken care of.

Amazing photos!!
Philippa was fantastic both in the run up to our wedding day and also on the day! She was very calm and extremely personable with several people commenting after the day on how nice she was! This meant everyone was very relaxed and happy around her and during group photos. She also kept us going during our outdoor photos in 2 degrees! We wanted two photographers in the day so she worked with her colleague, Charlotte and they worked really well together! This enabled us to have lots of photos from all angles and covering different areas at the same time. Our photos are amazing, capturing every moment of our day and all the emotions! Thank you Philippa for photos that will always remind us of the day!

Wedding Day!!
When booking our wedding photographer, it was important that I clicked and built a rapport with them. After speaking to a few photographers, I knew Phillipa was the one for us after one phone call. On the day Phillipa was great and captured every moment perfectly, she was fun to be around and words cannot describe how amazing she made me feel on the day. The feedback from family and friends was amazing too in that they loved having Philippa as our photographer. I hate having my picture taken but Phillipa made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I cannot recommend Phillipa highly enough

Philippa was the most amazing photographer for our big day!
Philippa was the most amazing photographer for our big day! Nothing was too much for her, she also integrated well with all our guests. Her knowledge of our venue and all the places to get the best shots possible was also a very nice touch for me and my wife knowing that we are going to have the best wedding album ever!

Blown away by your pix!
Philippa! I honestly don’t know where to start..Phil and I are completely blown away by your pix and just totally thrilled with them. A thousand times better than we could have ever dared hope. To say you’ve done us proud is to put it far too mildly. Just can’t believe how you managed to get ALL the shots we talked about + far, far more... Have just loved scrolling thru them to take us back to that magical day which you captured so expertly and creatively. Really brings it back so vividly - will enjoy looking at those pix over and over in the years to come. Rounding everyone up was like herding cats, so maximum respect to you for getting all those pix with people looking in the right direction! And to capture pretty much EVERY single guest. Thanks a million - P and I so appreciate all your energy, great humour and skill in capturing our special day. You really made it fun, which helped everyone relax.

We're so pleased with the photos!
We're so pleased with the photos! A huge, heartfelt thank you for all your time, energy and attention-to-detail on Saturday! It was absolutely brilliant to have you there to capture our day. Your smiles and reassurance throughout was so very much appreciated - particularly during the 'getting ready' part and ceremony, where I was more than a little nervous!

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

I flew to Florence to photograph a 3 day wedding and it was the most beautifully fascinating experience.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, friendly, informal, creative, honest.

What about your business are you most proud of?

My referrals are high and my business relies heavily on these. I think it must be a reflection of the way I work.

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

Connecting your suppliers no matter what they are helping with. It will make the often tricky decision process far more enjoyable.

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

The bride and groom mingling with guests making sure they talk to everyone.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

It is important to meet straight away so I either welcome people to my studio in London or I will happily travel to them with books and albums. I then leave them to make their decision for a few days and once that decision has been made meet them again at their venue to discuss where things are happening. I don't like to over plan because I think you can miss the magic of spontaneity on the day by doing this but having a look at favourite spots and a rain plan always helps!

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

A naturally caught shot of the marriage ceremony. It is priceless.

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

The bridal party jumping in the air in-front of an altar in Florence!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Wellies, they look great with a wedding dress!

Describe how you got into photography.

My father gave me an Olympus OM1 - my first film camera - when I was 16 and I haven't looked back since.
