Now, you’ll have to forgive me for blowing my own trumpet here but I’ve realised, we never give ourselves enough praise, do we? So here I am, about to shout about myself from the rooftops! Well, I’m going to let my couples shout for me but you get the idea!
I’m going to take a punt and say that you’ve got this far into my website because you like the look of my wedding photographs. That’s the first tick in the box on your hunt for a wedding photographer. I’m always super excited to really get to know my couples in the run up to their wedding as on the day itself we spend so much time together. With that in mind, I want to ensure you that the whole experience of being with me, from booking right up until sending you your final wedding gallery is an amazing experience.
I can tell you all about how I work on the day. I can describe the way I see myself but really you need to be hearing from couples like you, people who have spent time with me at a wedding.
These lovely couples have all been where you are now and these are just a few of the reasons they chose me to be their wedding photographer.
A Sense of Calm
I pride myself on keeping a cool head. This, plus my decade of experience as a wedding photographer, means nothing will phase me on your day. Meaning that the two of you will be able to relax and enjoy yourselves knowing that you’re in safe hands.
“We will be eternally grateful to Rachel for capturing a superb selection of happy, natural, warm and memorable moments of our wedding blessing and celebration. Rachel not only brings her unique style and artistry to your occasion, but also her genuine professionalism, discreet sense of calm and a very inspired eye. A truly lucky find!“- Charlene and Alun
It’s key that I blend in on your wedding day. I love capturing people’s emotions and natural reactions, to really invoke the essence of your day in my photographs. I can only do that by being unobtrusive and inconspicuous. Rest assured however that I know when to step up and make sure that those more formal family group photographs happen quickly and efficiently!
“All of the photos are beautiful without exception. On top of that Rachel is the master of blending in and organising people without making anyone feel uncomfortable whilst also being just the right amount of feisty with non compliant guests. A lovely human and amazing photographer – highly recommended!”– Julia and Mike
“On the day, Rachel was really calm and unobtrusive, but knew when to give us a polite nudge to get out for our couples shots when the sun was shining to get the best possible results. Thanks Rachel – we are so pleased to have such a lovely set of photos to remember our day by.” -Kathryn and Richard
Along with my documentary approach to weddings I love to bring a sense of style to my photographs. To give you timeless and artistic images that you can look back on for years to come. For me it’s all about timing, about really thinking when to click that camera shutter. The composition, the light, the emotion…when I get a perfect combination of those I know I’m onto a winner!
“Rachel was fantastic, I honestly can’t praise her enough. When we were looking for a photographer, I really felt that you got a sense of people’s personalities from their photos. I just loved the way Rachel used a photojournalist style to capture little moments, and the gorgeous luminous quality to her photographs. She was so lovely, too, even when I got a bit stressed just before the ceremony.
We also did a pre-wedding shoot with her, which definitely helped on the day. Neither of us particularly enjoys having our photo taken, but she made us feel so comfortable, we almost forgot she was there”. –Theodora and Nigel
“Rachel is a truly gifted photographer. She has a thoughtful, artistic and unobtrusive style and managed to capture our day perfectly. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and we really enjoyed working with her.” – Laura and Jonathan
By the time your wedding arrives I want to know you both well. My aim is to be at your wedding as a friend, not just your wedding photographer. Over the years I’ve photographed so many weddings and so am on hand to help with anything – from general chat all the way through to advice on your day.
“Rachel was amazing to work with right from the start! She was very knowledgeable and really helped in planning. To top it all off the photos were fantastic. A real joy to work with!” – Sharan and Keerthana
“Rachel is really friendly and calm. We were really pleased with the photos she took of our wedding and she gave us great advice on the run up to the day.” – Jess and Mo
