Full Description
Time really has flown and it's hard to believe that my career now spans 20 years! So much has changed in that time from film to digital and now many more photographers offering so many styles of photography. This gives a lot of choice to couples which can be a good thing but the saying is that it takes ten years to become an expert at your craft. I like my images to speak for themselves but it is said that I have an ability to create compelling, natural, yet flattering images either for a family portrait shoot or for a wedding, which has kept me in demand for almost two decades. My style combines natural reportage with a touch of classical. My work is regularly featured in national publications and magazines. I'm a qualified Master Photographer (LMPA) and Associate Member of The Royal Photographic Society (ARPS). I've been entrusted to capture weddings for other photographers and film makers and enjoyed such a wide range of wonderful and memorable experiences with my work. It's important for couples to be on the same wave length as their chosen photographer. It's also important to understand that a wedding isn't a photo shoot but capturing the day as naturally and spontaneously as possible whilst creating a beautiful story in images that will be cherished for years to come.

A superb artist
Wendy Aldiss possesses that rare combination of great technical skill coupled with beautiful, elegant artistry, which is perfect for not only weddings but all celebratory events. A superb artist as well, my family has used Wendy on many occasions. Each time she has created long lasting memories, for which we will be ever grateful.

Incredible snapshots of our day
Wendy went above and beyond taking the most amazing photos that really did capture the spirit of our wedding last July! Wendy was friendly and professional and great at gathering and instructing our guests to photos whilst seamlessly blending in. Importantly for Charlie and I (who are laid back planners to say the least!) Wendy was incredibly flexible, adaptable and creative with her ideas. We love all of the photos and it was almost an impossible task whittling down photos for the album. Would definitely recommend Wendy.

Captured moments we weren't aware of.
Wendy did a beautiful job of capturing our wedding, especially given the difficult circumstances of non-stop rain all day! The group photos and pictures of key moments in the day are lovely but it was also a wonderful surprise to find that Wendy had captured lots of moments that we weren't aware of. Wendy herself was a pleasure to deal with - organised and authoritative on the day but also friendly and personable. I couldn't recommend her enough!

Captured so many wonderful moments.
Wendy photographed our wedding so wonderfully! We were so excited to see the photos and they captured so many wonderful moments, that we would never have seen without her skill. The venue had a series of small gardens and she did such an amazing job of capturing the scenery as well as people enjoying themselves. Thank you so much, Wendy. We will forever treasure your photos.

Capturing moments to last a lifetime
We knew we wanted Wendy for our wedding the moment we met her. It was important to us that our photographer got to know us as a couple rather than just taking staged photos and this is exactly what we got. She was so lovely from day one. Neither myself or my husband like having our picture taken or being centre stage and so it was quite daunting but Wendy assured us that pictures would be a story book of moments captured and she definitely delivered. We hardly noticed her on the day( in a good way )and couldn’t be happpier with some of the incredible moments she somehow captured from love, emotion, friendship, family and just outrageously happy. Thank you x

Her photos always take my breath away!
I have known Wendy for quite a few years now. We first met when she photographed our beautiful wedding at Monkton Barn. Since then she has taken some gorgeous photos of our family as it has grown over the years starting with the children as newborns right through to our latest photo shoot which included three generations of the family. Wendy puts you at ease when taking your photo, especially the kids, they love her! She has an eye for capturing everyone's character and her use of light is stunning, the end result is always something you'll want to look at forever. Her photos always take my breath away.

FAQ
(7)

What is your most memorable wedding?

I can't pick just one!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, timeless, artistic, unobtrusive, warm.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm proud of having established my business 20 years ago and that I'm still as excited and inspired by photography as I was then. I've made wonderful friends through my business which has enhanced my life and that of my family - a wonderful career!

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

I can't think of a favourite. I often see wonderful imaginative and creative touches as couples don't feel constrained by tradition as they once did.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Couples either email me or telephone. We arrange a meeting which is invariably an evening during the week at my studio in Marlow. I discuss wedding plans with them and show examples of my work, albums and discuss the way I work. This is usually a fun evening, with coffee/tea, biscuits or a glass of wine!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Don't worry about the weather, it's the one thing you have no control over. The rainy weddings I've photographed have also allowed for some creative, fun and evocative brolly shots!

Describe how you got into photography.

My love of photography started when my children were small and we lived in Singapore and Indonesia. They were wonderful places to explore my creativity, using an Olympus OM-2 and experimenting with different lenses. Back in the UK, an enthusiastic friend who had been a fashion photographer for Vogue suggested that I take it further. I studied at Henley College and had my own darkroom at home. To my surprise, I started getting commissions. My tutor suggested that I enter the Kodak Awards and, to my amazement, I won Kodak Open Portrait Photographer of the Year 2000 UK. This catapulted my business and I was soon shooting four commissions a day. As time went on, I was asked to photograph weddings. As I dipped in, I but found that I loved it and I’ve since won numerous awards for my creative wedding photography. Happily, it’s now a large part of my life. I’ve engaged in continual professional development over the years gaining my Associateship to the Royal Photographic Society in 2006. I’m also a qualified Master Photographer. There’s been a lot of progress in the industry since those analogue years, but while the process has changed the eye hasn’t!
