Full Description
Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, and unlike the cake and the flowers, the images from your day will last forever. You want to be confident you can look back over the images with your Grandchildren and while they laugh at the fashions of the day, you will look at the image and be right back in that moment. I love weddings, but what girl dosen’t?! I love the details the bride has spent ages picking out, the decorations, the shoes, the hair accessories, the favours, the lights. Everything that makes the day specific to the couple. I love standing back and capturing the moment the couple become Mr & Mrs, I love watching the pride in the faces of the families and I love the emotion that you can only get on a wedding day. I want to mingle with your guests and capture them soaking up the wonder and enjoyment of your day but I also know when to step back and just let things happen. I'd love to capture the precious memories from your wedding day. Pop me a message and we can meet for a chat.

We have beautiful photos!
We have had the absolute pleasure of using Stephanie for our wedding photos and a variety of family shoots and can not recommend her highly enough. As a result we have a house filled with beautiful photos that capture the true essence of us! Not only is Stephanie an incredibly talented photographer but she is a truly lovely lady which only adds to the quality of her photos as she puts people at ease and makes the shoot an enjoyable experience (not an easy task when working with little people and my husband and I who really don’t like having our photo taken!!).

This lady is amazing!
This lady is amazing! From the first meeting I knew I could trust her with our day and she certainly didn’t disappoint. We have had so many comments on how lovely both she and Sarah were and how they didn’t hardly notice them there and as for the photos, they are perfect! Could not of found a better photographer and would recommend having Stephanie as your wedding photographer to everyone

The images she captured were priceless
After having a brilliant family photo shoot with Stephanie, we booked her for our wedding recently. It was just a small, intimate wedding but the images she captured were priceless. She is so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to Stephanie we have some beautiful memories of our day. Thank you Stephanie!

Relaxed and unobtrusive.
We had such a wonderful day with Stephanie, and she captured some unique and beautiful photos. We were all made to feel relaxed and the photos were unobtrusive. She also came up with some creative and fun ideas for photo opportunities which we thoroughly enjoyed. She was amazing with the little ones and got fab photos of our little boy who is 18 months old. Nothing was too much trouble, and she was so helpful and kind at every step of the way from tailoring our package and timings, to making us laugh for fun snaps, to solving any problems or issues. We love our pictures and will come back for the next event, or family shoot without doubt.

We would definitely recommend Stephanie
We recently booked Stephanie for our wedding photography and she was excellent, far exceeding our photography expectations. She not only blended into the reception unobtrusively among our guests, but managed to organise and get beautiful photos of all 124 of us, the reception, church service, friends and family – she charmed and captured everyone, from the 2 year olds to the 80 year olds, including the family spaniels! We would definitely recommend Stephanie’s services for wedding photos, we have a beautiful album of memories, the fun, events and personality of the day have been captured perfectly and without intruding at all on our day. Thank you very much Stephanie.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

Photographing a wedding as we travelled up the Thames on a huge boat. It was amazing.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed Stylish Classic Memorable Approachable

What about your business are you most proud of?

My industry awards and accreditation

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

Make sure you incorporate time to be together on the day. It goes so quickly. Time alone together to take it all in and enjoy the magic of the day is so important.

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

The bride has small paper flowers within her bouquet and the paper used was from her Mum’s favourite book. A very subtle but very personal touch.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After enquiry I will send the couple an email detailing the packages I offer. If they then like to meet I will bring along some samples from previous weddings and also discuss their plans for the day. Should they book me we have further catch-up calls / meetings before their big day. If it’s a new venue, I will also visit the venue and speak to their point of contact re the times on the day etc.

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

A photo of just the two of them. Alone. In an area of the venue they love.

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

Six men (the groom and his groomsmen) playing bagpipes along Westminster Bridge in the shadow of Big Ben. It was so much fun and drew a huge crowd!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Depending on the couple, we can either embrace it and get fun shots with umbrellas in the rain, or utilise the inside areas of the venue to capture some shots.

Describe how you got into photography.

I have always been a keen hobbyist and when my career in financial services ended I decided to turn my hobby into a career. Best decision I have ever made. I love capturing memories for people.
