WEDDINGS CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT THEM TO BE
So I thought I’d share a little about what I think they’re all about. And what I’ll be looking for on your big day.
My main aim is that when you look back through your photographs you aren’t just reminded of the moments but you remember how you were feeling in those moments. I don’t really like to pose people or tell anyone to repeat anything, all those photographs would achieve would be to remind you of me… And that’s totally missing the point in my opinion. I much prefer to try and capture everything as it unfolds.
ALL THE EMOTIONS
You can’t pose emotion. Whether it’s tearing up saying your vows or cracking up listening to the best mans speech, I want to capture it all! I love that a wedding day inspires the whole spectrum of human emotions. From thinking about the people who you wish were there to being so grateful for all the people who are. Laughter and tears, proud parents and gushing grandparents, silly kids messing about and couples getting swept up in the joy of the day.
Laughter is the best! Weddings are a pretty important, but they can also be hilarious and exciting.
AND HILARIOUS INDIFFERENCE :/
PHOTOS OF YOU GUYS HAPPEN NATURALLY ALL DAY LONG
GETTING STUFF CHUCKED IN YOUR FACE!
AND GETTING YOUR DANCE ON!
OR WE CAN GO FOR A LITTLE WANDER
A lot of couples portraits will make themselves naturally throughout the day, but it’s usually good to take 15-20 minutes out of the day to escape the madness and go for a little wander. We can get some lovely natural photos of you guys having a bit of a breather, and remembering what the day is all about.

I’LL CAPTURE ALL YOUR LOVELY DETAILS IN ALL THE NICE MOMENTS
Details are part of the personality of your day and I love how they create a colour palette for the set of photographs I create. I do try and get some of the details on their own, the wedding breakfast all set up before you enter and the buttonholes all laid out in the morning. But I love when a detail can be captured in a moment as well. Like this bride looking ecstatic behind her bouquet.
BEAUTIFUL RINGS AND GORGEOUS BOUQUETS
IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU THOUGH! IT’S ABOUT ALL YOUR PEOPLE HAVING THE BEST TIME
You’ve invited everyone you care about to share your day. From people you see all the time to those you wish you could see more. I’ll try and capture them all! You also can’t be everywhere… So hopefully I’ll be able to have a nosey around and capture what everyone else is getting up to and fill in some of the gaps.
SOME GROUP SHOTS HAPPEN THROUGH THE DAY
But we can of course do the traditional group shots, it’s great to keep this part of the day as short as possible and not let it eat into precious celebrating times!
I’LL TRY TO GET ALL THE FUNNY MOMENTS
Capturing so many fun moments and everyone letting their hair down is what I love. People not taking themselves too seriously, brides stuffing their face with cake and kids breaking the rules!
FROM ALL THE FUN ANGLES
Moments are the subject, but I’m constantly looking for creative ways to capture those moments. Interesting angles, fun reflections, use of depth of field, or lighting to enhance those moments. I want your images to each stand alone as pieces of beautiful imagery. To create images throughout the whole day that you’ll be able to proudly frame on your walls, not just the portrait images of the two of you.
SO ALL YOU NEED TO WORRY ABOUT IS HAVING THE BEST DAY EVER
AND MARRYING YOUR PERSON!
AND THEN AFTERWARDS
you’ll receive as many images as I think tell your story. This is usually between 600 and 800. Each image will have been individually edited and enhanced by myself to make sure they’re all given the unique attention they deserve.
I hope you’ve survived my little ramble about how I approach capturing your big day, looking at my style and the things I look for. Hopefully it’ll help you decide whether I’m the right fit for you guys!
Please get in touch if you’d like more info, I’d love to hear more about your big day plans.
“Lucy’s creative talent & enthusiasm was so obvious when we met her for the first time; we felt completely confident about her photographing our wedding. On the day, our guests commented on how lovely Lucy was as she subtly bounced around capturing so many clever shots. Our day was very colourful and the way she captured this was beyond my expectations…just perfect. She worked her socks off for us, and we couldn’t be more grateful.” VIEW GALLERY
