Full Description
I want to capture all the emotions of your wedding but in an informal, fun, unobtrusive way. Most couples dread the thought of their wedding photos and see them as a necessary evil but I can promise that if you choose me to be your photographer you won’t feel like that on the day. My customer feedback over and over again is how amazed my couples were with the choice of photos – mainly captured without them even knowing I was there, and how much they enjoyed having them taken even when they did know I was there! I won't keep your guests waiting around for hours, and I won't keep you from your guests for hours either. I get the job done with humour - but also with efficiency. It breaks my heart when I hear how some couples are let down by their photographers, or are disappointed after the event. So I uniquely offer you this - you don't pay for your photos until you have seen them. Not 6 weeks before the wedding has even happened. If you don't like them - you don't pay. In 25 years of taking wedding photos though - it's never happened!

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Sharon Mallinson
Hiya First of all congratulations ! It’s hard to know who to choose for your wedding though isn’t it? As for photographers -there are literally hundreds - so I’m honoured you’ve stopped by to have a glimpse of what I can do! The one thing a web page can’t help with though is the personality of the person behind the camera. And in truth it’s going to be how you get on with that person that is crucial if you want no stress photography! So please call and say hello. X

f we could of left you more stars we would have
After a little while of searching for a photographer, we were worried we weren't going to find anyone who would get 'us', we spoke to many other photographers who insisted in holding engagement shoots in very false surroundings like 'in the woods' or 'at the beach', but my Husband and I are more often then not, found under the bonnet of the Land Rover when it breaks! So when we found Sharon, we were over the moon! Sharon totally understood and got our vibe! We were made to feel 100% comfortable about our shoot and booked a package that suited our budget which was all very well explained and very open so there were no surprises. Communication was top notch and Sharon arrived in good time ( you do not need to pester or chase Sharon up on anything!) and she was there to keep me calm before I trotted off down the aisle - on the day - I must Say it was like a million degrees C and Sharon made our photos look effortless! All of our wish list photos were taken, and Sharon's very good at taking organic natural shots which shows in our album as our guests, and us, hadn't realized the camera was still rolling! Our group shots were great and well organised and all of our guests commented on Sharon's professionalism and how nice she was through out the day! The Photos were turned around in super quick time too! We have this evening had the great pleasure in choosing our album which has been full of laughs! We also booked a 'rock the frock' and to anyone thinking about it? Just do it, especially if you have horses - my shoot will remain in my heart forever - I had a very tender moment with my best friend which was beautifully captured forever in my wedding album. Sharon is fun, caring, professional and is one of the nicest people you could possibly wish for on your wedding day - you will not be disappointed. Best wishes. Josie and Andy Mac and Lenny - horses. Betty and Jess - Range Rovers ;-).

Sharon made me feel so at ease
I Can't recommend Symply Photography enough. Sharon is just fantastic. We had our wedding May this year and we have just been to pick up our Stunning Photo Album. Sharon made me feel so at ease and comfortable on the day with taking photos and even just being a happy friendly face. You can see the passion that Sharon has for her job through her way of her warming words . Aswell as her fantastic skill at capturing all the great memories of our special day and may others. Highly recommended

Sharon was the only person I would trust to do the job
When it came to choosing a photographer for my daughter's wedding, Sharon was the only person I would trust to do the job. Sharon put my daughter and her husband completely at ease when they met her the one and only time before the wedding (they live in the US but had heir wedding in the UK). Sharon understood completely what my daughter wanted and she came up with very creative ideas on the day. I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for - the photographs are stunning and it's been so hard to limit the number for the albums! Thank you Sharon, we have so many photographs to look back on a wonderful day!"

Best Photographer for our Same Sex wedding
From the moment we met Sharon we knew she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. She made us feel quickly at ease like we were just sat having a chat with friends. Sharon showcased a beautiful range of her artistic work to us to allow us to focus on what we wanted for our own wedding and gave us lots of ideas that we had also never thought of. Sharon arrived in good time on the wedding day and made no hesitation in getting to work; even taking pictures from her car! Sharon worked discreetly around the ceremony and meal taking many memorable pictures that we ourselves didn’t realise had happened. She organised us very quickly and professionally for the formal photos and took us to lots of discreet and hidden places of the uphill Lincoln area we did not know existed. Sharon worked very quickly to professionally edit our photos to a high quality and standard. When we went to visit her again to see them, we both ended up crying (with tears of happiness of course!) because of the quality of the moments that had been captured. We managed to work out our photos for our album and Sharon again, using her professional insight and intellect, constructed us a beautiful album where we can cherish the memories of our special day forever. Sharon comes with our fullest recommendation – professional, personal and dedicated to completing a fantastic job. She was the only photographer not wanting payment upfront, that to us, made us realise straight away her personal integrity and pride in her own work being nothing short than outstanding. It was a pleasure having Sharon there to capture all the special moments of our day."

Everything we could have wished for and more!
We were quite daunted by the thought of choosing a wedding photographer as our wedding photos were important to us, knowing they were what we would have to look back on. However I can honestly say Sharon was everything we could have wished for and more. On the day she was very professional and organised and ensured she captured our requested shots. Sharon also made us feel at ease at pre and post wedding meetings and was very accommodating and flexible with the offered wedding packages. Her experience in the industry was immediately clear. We are still trying to choose photos for our album as there were some really lovely shots so have yet to see Sharon's creation but we have every confidence that Sharon will create an album to exceed our expectations. We would highly recommend her photography services.

The photographs all had both a natural and excellent quality
Being a more mature couple than most bride and grooms, we wanted a photographer who was professional, experienced and would be at the wedding almost un-noticed. Sharon was all of these things, and more. She captured the mood of the day in an amazing way and her bubbly personality was well received by all of our guests. The photographs all had both a natural and excellent quality and Sharon dealt with any queries, before, during and after the wedding without any fuss. We would recommend Sharon without any hesitation.
