Relaxed Natural Creative Wedding Photographer
“SARAH BLENDED IN SO WELL! OUR GUESTS ASSUMED WE’D BEEN FRIENDS SINCE SCHOOL! “
I'm a Fine Art Photographer working nationwide and abroad, providing Wedding, Boudoir and Family Portrait photography.
My signature style is bright, beautiful and romantic imagery using natural light and wonderful surroundings to create heartfelt and romantic photographs for you to treasure forever.
My warm and friendly nature allows you and your guests to feel comfortable and happy in front of the camera. It's a characteristic that I'm very proud of and results in authentic, not staged photos!
Over the past 5 years, I've won several awards and regularly feature in top wedding magazines and blogs such as Brides and Love My Dress.
It's very important to me that you receive a bespoke and quality experience, therefore I take a limited number of bookings per year.
I have a zoology degree from the University of Leeds
I volunteered for a wildlife conservation organisation in Botswana and it changed my life!
I LOVE no makeup days!
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! I could eat eggs benedict or peanut butter porridge any time of day!
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
We were lucky enough to have most of my childhood recorded in images and videos by Mum. We get to reconnect with special memories and dear loved ones
For me, when I hold a photo, my senses and imagination are triggered. Smells noises and voices all come back to life.
It's my dream for my clients to be plunged back into the midst of their wedding when looking the albums, 50 years on
I GOT YOUR BACK!
I'm not just one of your wedding suppliers, I'm a pal who you can rely on to reapply your lipgloss, put sun cream on your bridesmaids and be your advocate.
You won’t be forced or shouted at but guided and reassured.
I pick the best light, the rest is you.
Let's have some fun together! Be yourselves!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
How do you achieve such a natural style?
I use my trusty weddings timings form to gather important information about your day, such as church location, group shot lists and all of the special details that you are excited to share with me.
It's packed full of tips and tricks that I've collected over the past 5 years of shooting weddings all over the world and helps you to get the most out of your wedding photography!
Knowing that all of the details are safe with me can allow you to relax on the day and pretend I'm not there. Your weddings guests will follow suit and you'll have gorgeously natural wedding images for life.
This is your day!
Do you have a contract?
Yes! It's full of helpful things to consider and with my years of experience, you will have all you need to know at your fingertips!
How do we book?
Booking is secured with a non refundable £300 booking fee
Full balance is due 2 months before the big day
A second shooter can be added for an extra £200
For further afield weddings, I ask for hotel & travel costs to be covered, nothing more! This ensures that I am in the local area on the morning of the wedding so there is no worry about traffic! It also gives me time to check the route from the church to the venue :)
What happens once we've booked?
Your big day is coming and you're dreaming of stunning photos that capture your wedding.
A couple of weeks before, over Skype or a cuppa, we go through my bespoke wedding timings form. Here you can share everything with me from the smallest details to the biggest plans, along with your wedding timeline. (I love weddings so I love this part!)
The aim is that I will know when and where things are happening so that you can forget all about me and allow me to capture all of those special, unnoticed moments!
We are a tad camera shy, is that a problem?
After you’ve been showered in confetti and congratulations, we’ll take some time away. You’ll get the space to enjoy being together and revel in the once in a lifetime high of being just married! And I’ll capture every magic moment exchanged.
By stepping away from the crowd, you get a chance to pause, breathe and let it all sink in. This quiet time of just the two of you, the most intimate and peaceful part of the day. And a welcome respite after the service and before the party and family photos!
Don't worry if you are feeling a bit nervous about this bit! It's fun and I promise, I'm an expert in making you feel comfortable and relaxed around the camera!
Do we really ignore you?
During your day, I’ll be in the background
Capturing the moments of raw emotion
The spontaneous laughter
The times that you may not notice but will last forever
