OUR PHOTOGRAPHER EXTRAORDINAIRE
We browsed through Sharon’s website and read what other couples had written. Seeing the variety of pictures really helped us finalise what we already knew! We did not want a photographer that was “traditional” and Sharon’s love of colour/quirkiness fitted perfectly with our Mexican Fiesta theme! It was also lovely to not feel like “just another client to book” When it came to our “engagement” shoot, we were really nervous. I lost sleep over what to wear on the day until Sharon reminded me to … BE MYSELF! We met up in a beautiful woodland area and Sharon explained how she worked. She shoots in a way that when you look back at your pictures, you can remember exactly what you were feeling at that moment! That really stuck with us! Having the pre-shoot really helped us to look forward to the wedding and Sharon was just such fun! We really couldn’t wait to see her again! It was our honour to be include Sharon in our seating plan. Sharon made everything flow smoothly and even remembered our families names, to be able to be creative for 10 hours or more, you need yummy food to fuel that! One of our favourite shots of us is being surrounded by the colours of the smoke grenades that Sharon brought along! What a fantastic surprise – she always thinks outside of the box!!! So unique and fitted in perfectly with our colourful day! Arrrribaaa! Looking back at our photos, I realised there were many parts of the day that we would have missed. Sharon arrived early at the venue and captured the stunning decorations and table pieces before it was ransacked! Tears of joy and laughter were shared looking at all the images that Sharon worked so hard on! Mega. So happy to have amazing images captured of our friends and family in their element, dancing and enjoying themselves! Such wonderful memories – what an honour to have met such a splendid, talented human being! Sharon bloody Cooper. Our Photographer Extraordinaire. Not just another service for our wedding. But now our FRIEND. We cannot wait to have many more reasons to book with Sharon again as there is no one else we would rather share special occasions with! Sharon is BRIGHT, BUBBLY, ENERGETIC, ENTHUSIASTIC & CHEEKY! But most of all, she really simply is, THE BEST! (I HOPE YOURE SINGING IT!) There aren’t enough words to describe how grateful we are to have met you and for you to have the hardest job of capturing our personalities through a lens – but you bloody did! We real life love you, lovely Sharon! Thank you forever – THE ROBINSONS. xxxx Louise and Ross, The Cloisters, Letchworth

SHARON WAS TOTALLY ON OUR WAVE LENGTH – WE CLICKED
We first met Sharon at Tie the Knot wedding fair – we travelled up from Surrey to the event as we were looking for something a bit different and special. And we were lucky enough to meet Sharon who was totally on our wave length and we clicked from the off. On the day of the wedding Sharon breezed in to the cottage I was getting ready in and became part of the bridal party! Helping me with my flowers, entertaining my niece and capturing some wonderful moments with my bridesmaids and family. We weren’t keen on the ‘posed’ shots and Sharon completely understood, she put us at ease and I’m so glad we did them, as they are just stunning! Throughout the day and night Sharon DID NOT STOP!! I’ve never seen someone in 5 places at once and I have no idea how she managed to get all the amazing shots she did. Our guests loved her and some even thought she was a friend. I can’t recommend Sharon enough – she is so passionate and incredible at what she does and she makes everything so personal. She’s absolutely hilarious too and such a great personality to have doing one of the most important jobs of the day. Thank you Sharon for EVERYTHING……we will miss you!!

YOUR CHARM ALLOWED US TO RELAX
We knew from the moment we saw your website that we wanted you to be our wedding photographer. Your sense of joy, fun, whimsy and humour were exactly what we wanted to infuse our event with. During our Skype chat, we felt we “clicked” with you and that you “got” our weird, slightly irreverent sense of humour. We just liked you! On the day, we got so much more than we could have hoped for. Your presence was a wonderful addition to the party. All our guests loved you, and we both loved having you around. Despite both being total haters of stereotypical and cheesy couple shots, your charm allowed us to relax and enjoy posing for our pair photos. They turned out so beautiful and far from being awkward, the moments of real connection away from the crowd, turned into some of our most treasured memories. But apart from loving your presence on the day, you were just lovely I the “aftermath” as well: we loved your little social media sneak peeks and snapshots in the subsequent days, and adored browsing the first few edited shots so soon afterwards. When your final box arrived, it made us sooo happy! It was so thoughtful! And it was wonderful to catch up with you on Skype after we viewed our blog post. Next we are going to get them put into a few phonebooks for ourselves and our families. It ‘ll be wonderful to have your photos at our fingertips! Sharon – it’s a pleasure to know you and your creativity and a privilege to have your artistry as part of our lives Love Mareike and Toby Collis, Old Luxters barn/Vine, yard, Oxfordshire XXX

I’VE NEVER LIKED PHOTOS OF MYSELF BUT I HAPPILY SH
We had the most incredible wedding day, and Sharon captured every detail of it beautifully. Neither of us are comfortable with being photographed, we simply wanted to enjoy our day without any fuss and have some nice photos to remember it. Oh boy, did we land on our feet when we found Sharon!! Full of colour, and laughter, Sharon’s photos jumped out! Most importantly for us, we could see how relaxed the people in her photos were: natural and no awkward poses: genuinely capturing a moment. On our wedding day, Sharon smiled and shimmied along all day. Sharon took control with tricky bits like organising the family for the formal photos but the rest of the day she was a photographer ninja!! She let us relax and enjoy our day to the fullest, and because of that our photos are simply magic- I’ve never liked photos of myself but I happily show everyone our wedding photos!!!! All the little details and surprises Sharon arranged along the way were little rays of sunshine in the inevitable stress of wedding planning. Even being height of peak season, our photos were with us much quicker than expected- proof it really happened! We’ve already recommended her to several friends & family, and we can’t wait to have an excuse to have Sharon take more photos in the future. Thank you Sharon! Zoe and Ben Woburn Sculpture Park

YOU MADE US FEEL REALLY SPECIAL
We can’t thank you enough. The whole experience was hugely enjoyable. At the pre-wedding shoot, you made us feel at ease, laugh and think about what we were looking forward to as well as what was important to us about the wedding. It was one of the most enjoyable parts of our wedding preparation. As a result, we felt more relaxed about having the photos on our wedding day than we ever imagined. On the day itself, we had high hopes. You exceeded those. Again, you helped us to enjoy our day; we genuinely loved the moments we were together with you. The guests also commented on how friendly and warm you were throughout the day. Everyone felt comfortable and enjoyed your company. During the wedding and in the days that followed, there were so many little things that you did which were really touching. The photos themselves were absolutely wonderful. We’ve had so many people saying how beautiful they are, how happy people look and how they capture moments perfectly. We couldn’t agree more. Looking through the photos makes us so happy and remember how wonderful our day. Again, not only were you (and your colleague) responsible for capturing our day, you were a huge reason it was so good. You made us feel really special. Thank you. Love from, Vikki and Tim xx Victoria and Timothy, Hatfield House Old Palace, Herts

Photographer ninja!!
Sharon is the most wonderful, genuine person and we instantly clicked. We both dislike having our photos taken and all we wanted was to enjoy our day without feeling like we were on show and have forced cheesy smile and re-take lots of shots. Sharon’s photos are so full of life and colour. She has a skill for relaxing even the most nervous person and capturing natural smiles and moments, always in the right place at the right time. I hate my photo being taken but I show everyone our wedding photos. In the lead up, Sharon took the time to get to know us and was so thoughtful with excellent, expert advice when asked. She helped with putting together timings for the day and made the effort to learn family members names and important details, which was amazing in helping things to run smoothly. On our wedding day, Sharon felt more like a friend. She helped calm me as I got ready, expertly and effortlessly fixed things before they became real problems, such as the bottom of the bouquets were wet as they’ve been in water. Bear in mind your photographer will spend all day with you, on one of the most crazy days of your life.. having the right person makes all the difference. Sharon took control with tricky bits like organising family photos but was a ninja capturing the rest of the day. It meant we could relax and actually enjoy our day, and still have the most beautiful photos. All the effort and thought Sharon put into capturing our day shines through, and we will treasure our photos forever. We felt so looked after and in safe hands, and even after the wedding the excellent care continued. (Ps. we have so many amazing photos but shared this one as we didn’t want to show faces.)
