Hey! I'm Sophie
You’ll often find me in my kitchen trying to replicate a Mary Berry recipe or figuring out why my house plants look like they've had better days (oops). I’ve probably watched every true crime documentary on Netflix and my special super-power is making you feel at ease in front of the camera.
I live for travel! Croatia, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, Italy, you name it - all have my heart and there's nothing more romantic for me than getting to photograph two lovers in an intimate destination wedding.
I have a degree in Film which influences my work so much. I love being able to make couples who have never been photographed professionally before feel like the stars of their own romantic film, and have images that tell their story in the most beautiful way. Photography and wedding traditions change and evolve, but like the films that I love, my photography is timeless, romantic and emotive.
Although I do have to be honest with you, as educated and pretentious as that all sounds, one of my favourite films is actually Legally Blonde… Guilty pleasure, what can I say?
LOVE IS THE GREATEST ADVENTURE
WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO
When I was younger, our garage that held our family photographs flooded. That’s when I realised just how important photographs and memories are. Flicking through the sodden Polaroids and old holiday snaps evoked such emotion inside of me and I want my clients to feel the same nostalgia with their images as I did that day. If you can find your images in 40 years and have every memory come flooding back (pardon the pun) that’s the real power of connection and photography.
Wedding faves: roses, intimate ceremonies, destination elopements, chocolate cake and pink... lots of pink.
It’s just as important to me that we’re the right match before working together. The relationship that I have with my couples is really special to me. I am not the person for you if you're looking for a photographer to simply turn up on your wedding day and snap. I want to be here to help you throughout the whole process.
I’m always happy to hop on a phone call or a video chat so that you can ask me any questions and we can get to know each other. Nothing beats a real face to face conversation and connection. Let’s talk!
WANT TO KNOW MY SECRET SAUCE?
I grew up in front of the camera. Shhh! I’ve been in your exact position; when I felt my best in pretty dresses and professional makeup, and when I felt my worst with grease on my hair, no-makeup and blackened teeth - yep. I’ll let you enjoy that visual image for a second...
I can make any camera-shy person feel completely relaxed in my presence. That’s a promise. A fact. I even put that skill above my camera talents, and I’m proud of that. Don’t take my word for it - ask my couples.
I have the perfect mix between fly-on-the-wall documentarian and honorary bridesmaid. I know when to steal away your bouquet and stage some precious detail shots. When to help prompt and direct you to bring out your true personalities in our couple shoot. And most importantly - when to sneak around undetected capturing allll the real emotions throughout the day.
I’m not a documentarian. I’m not a fine-art photographer. I’m both. I feel as much pride when you tell me what an amazing support I was on your day, as when you tell me you love your images.
