MATTERS AS MUCH AS THE END RESULT
MATTERS AS MUCH AS THE END RESULT
First and foremost - congratulations!
You're one step closer to your next chapter AND I'M SO EXCITED TO POTENTIALLY BE A PART OF THAT!
“Sophie is such an amazing photographer and person. She really gets to know you and what you want from your photos. To say we don’t like the camera, she made it so easy and it says it all in the results. Sophie went absolutely above and beyond on our day!” - Beth & James
You enquire and tell me all about your wonderful plans and check my availability. We have a chat and a consultation (I want to know all about your story) and your date is secured with a signed Wedding Agreement and a £350 deposit. I send you my welcome pack featuring a 44 page magazine full of planning tips and tricks, recommended suppliers, and timeline advice and the excitement begins!
If you've added an engagement session we'll find the perfect location and book it in. It's a great chance for us to get to know each other, help you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and take some beautiful photographs!
A month before the big day, we'll get together to go through your timeline and sort out the final details. Then on your day I want you to relax and be present. Trust in me that I'll be capturing your day to an amazing standard and enjoying every second.
As the wedding buzz is starting to return to normal, you'll receive your online gallery and be able to relive it over and over again. Keep an eye out for the post - your fine art prints will be on their way too! I have your gallery with you within 4-8 weeks and some sneak peeks within 48 hours - I get as excited as you to see them!
Photos are like mirrors.
If you feel weird, uncomfortable, awkward – the images will show it. If you don’t trust the person following you around all day with a camera – your gallery will show it. I want you to enjoy the experience of working with me as much as you love your beautiful photo’s at the end of our collaboration. I'm not a photographer who will just turn up on the day as a stranger, I want to genuinely learn your story, break down that barrier that let your real personalities shine. With your trust, we'll make it happen!
friend, and fine art photographer
Your wedding day will be a day of moments. Those hilarious, emotional, calm-before-the-storm hours getting ready with your closest friends. The first time you see each other at the ceremony, hearts skipping a beat, butterflies in your stomachs. Your first kiss, your first dance. And all the little moments too. The hand-squeezes under the table, the stolen glances, the secret kisses. They’re all the moments you’ll want to relive again and again, because they’re what’ll make your day so special. And they’re the moments I want to capture for you.
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, when to direct your bride tribe towards the prettiest window light for your dress reveal - 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.
KIND WORDS FROM MY COUPLES...
"Sophie was the perfect photographer. From our first contact she was so friendly and professional and seemed genuinely as excited about our wedding as we were! We had an engagement shoot which is such a great idea to get to know each other. These photos were gorgeous and we knew we were in safe hands for the summer! Sophie's style is relaxed and romantic, which really suited our wedding. The coverage on the day was great, with every element being captured from pretty details to all the big moments. The photos are the perfect record of our day, including its sweep of emotions, as well as being completely stunning and making us all look fab! We can't wait to fill our new home with the prints and would definitely recommend Sophie to everyone!"
WE WOULD RECOMMEND SOPHIE TO ANYONE
"Honestly you were literally one of the best parts of the wedding and you helped make it perfect! These are so beautiful it made us cry. I don't know how you manage to capture so much of the emotion. You made sure we always felt relaxed, you knew your way around the wedding like a pro and you captured the most beautiful moments. Your wedding will be so beautiful and I just hope you manage to find a photographer who can live up to the incredibly high standards you set. Thank you so much for everything!"
HONESTLY YOU WERE ONE OF THE BEST PARTS OF OUR WEDDING
“Sophie is such an amazing photographer and person. She really gets to know you and what you want from your photos. To say we don’t like the camera, she made it so easy and it says it all in the results. Sophie went absolutely above and beyond on our day! Where do I even begin saying how satisfied me and my now husband were with Sophie's work on our marriage ceremony! She is everything you would need on your special day; professional, made us feel extremely comfortable, never ran out of ideas and understood us very well! The turn around was super quick, I have never expected to get my photos that fast and to completely fall in love with each and every one of them! Its impossible to choose! I would highly recommend Sophie and would work with her again any day!"
Sophie is such an amazing photographer and person.
"Sophie was simply amazing. She is incredibly detailed, not just in her photos but in her planning which made all the difference. Sophie was always there with purposeful recommendations which turned out incredible results. It's clear from her photos and herself throughout the whole process, that she cares just as much about her subjects as her shots. We couldn't be happier!"
It's clear that she cares just as much about her subjects as her shots.
"I love them! You’ve honestly taken some incredible photos, better than we could ever have imagined so thank you! You have captured photos that we hadn’t even known had happened so great to look through them! All my family and Ollies family have commented on just how lovely and extremely professional you were! They were so impressed that you just moved around taking photos without anyone noticing and so have got some lovely photos of people just being natural, it’s exactly what we wanted and so we can’t thank you enough - we will treasure the photos forever! Thank you for everything!"
You have captured photos that we hadn’t even known had happened
"We had the privilege of Sophie shooting our maternity/bump shoot and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. The photos are amazing even better than we would have ever imagined and certainly brought a tear to our eyes when we received our images. - Thank you Sophie. If you’re thinking of booking Sophie for your wedding or maternity shoot please don’t hesitate as you won’t regret it. Her work is fantastic and to top it off Sophie herself is a lovely person too! She immediately puts you at ease which helps if you’re camera shy, which then allows her to capture the most fabulous images. We will definitely be using her again in the future!"
SHE IMMEDIATELY PUTS YOU AT EASE WHICH HELPS IF YOU’RE CAMERA SHY, WHICH THEN ALLOWS HER TO CAPTURE THE MOST FABULOUS IMAGES.
"Sophie is an absolutely fantastic photographer and you shouldn’t think twice if you’re thinking about having her photograph your wedding! Sophie really does put all her love and care into the photos she takes. Being a cinematographer myself, I’m quite quick to spot a bad image or lack of creativity, but you’ll find none of that with Sophie. She finds a magical balance between capturing the emotion of the event while taking superb stunning photos.
Our only wish is that we could get married a second time so we can use Sophie all over again! She’s been incredible right from the very start and all the way to the finish 💙 Thank you Sophie!!"
I love how you captured the atmosphere and emotions in all your photos
"Eeeeek Sophie!!! Thank you so much for these, we love them!! Thank you for getting so many natural pictures of people smiling and laughing. You really were just the loveliest person to have photographing our day. You really did make it easy and I'm not the biggest fan of having my pictures taken! They're all lovely and have brought smiles to our faces and tears to our eyes. We love them ALL!"
you were the LOVELIEST person to have photographing our day
"What can I say? I cannot thank you enough for Saturday! The photos are honestly stunning and they have got us so unbelievably excited. Throughout the entirety of the morning you made both myself, and my wedding party feel extremely at ease. Your style of photos, and your supportive presence are just two of the hundreds of reasons as to why you are so brilliant at your job. Ross wants to thank you individually for making him feel so comfortable during the couple shots. He normally hates photographs and feels awkward posing for long periods of time. However, the way you styled us and subtly told us where to go and what to do really helped his confidence and allowed us to get a number of gorgeous shots that just encapsulate our special day so perfectly. Your work will be displayed in our home for many happy years to come, and that means the world to us. Thank you so much, you are incredible at what you do!"
YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOS, AND YOUR SUPPORTIVE PRESENCE ARE JUST TWO OF THE HUNDREDS OF REASONS AS TO WHY YOU ARE SO BRILLIANT AT YOUR JOB.
"Wow!! We definitely have lots of very beautiful shots! We will be proudly hanging them on our walls and treasuring them for the rest of our lives! Your stunning shots captured the whole feel of the day. The moments we didn't see but you did, the laughs, the happy tears, the hugs, the love, the funny moments all captured from another view - they're priceless. I can't stop looking at them. You fit seamlessly into our wedding, never interrupting intimate moments whilst having the unique ability to seem to be everywhere at once capturing beauty across the whole venue. We can't thank you enough!"
we will be treasuring them for the rest of our lives!
"Sophie is absolutely incredible! We had an engagement shoot with Sophie this Autumn and she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! She has also been so patient with us because of all the changes we had to make to our booking because of Covid. Sophie made the whole experience so enjoyable and the edited photos came back super fast! Her photos are absolutely stunning and her attention to detail is just incredible. I couldn’t recommend Sophie enough and I will definitely be using her again for my wedding and for other events. (I’ve also recommend her to my friends!) Thanks so much Sophie!"
SHE MADE US FEEL SO COMFORTABLE. I COULDN'T RECOMMEND SOPHIE ENOUGH
she made us feel confident and comfortable. the end result is stunning
"Harry and I are so happy with the way that Sophie captured our special day. She made us feel confident, comfortable and gave us directions when needed - Her level of professionalism throughout was much appreciated. The end result is stunning and we are grateful for the time and energy that Sophie put into this (we actually hiked a small mountain for the main shoots). We highly recommend Sophie!"
"Our wedding day photos are absolutely beautiful and way beyond our expectations!! When I saw the photos of St Wilfrid's and all of our guests there, it made me cry! It really was so special to get married there and your photos are absolutely stunning 😍 You have captured the whole day perfectly and they are photos we will treasure forever! I've already looked through all of them 3 times. It was so lovely to have you both with us on the day and we really would love to catch up as friends over cocktails if you are up in Liverpool. Thanks again for everything, it's been so lovely to get to know you over the past couple of years and we look forward to seeing more of your incredible photos on Instagram. Love Kate & Ed xxx"
our photos are absolutely beautiful and beyond our expectations
"Sophie... we c0uldn't have met a nicer person than you and you just made our day so special. You were just the best, you made us feel so relaxed and comfortable and made our wedding day so special and everything we wanted. When we got our photos back it was like we were reliving the day all over again. We now have those memories forever all because of you capturing it so perfectly. You are just amazing! So so talented, these photos are just unbelievable. We're so in love with them. Thank you so so much!!"
you are just amazing, these are unbelievable
"I had seen Sophie's pictures pop up on my social media, so when I got engaged I knew exactly who to contact. I am so so pleased that I did! Her photography style is beautiful, the contact that she had with us throughout all of the preparation stages was exceptional, and the day itself couldn't have been any better photographed. We had sneak peeks THE SAME DAY, along with the final gallery available to view very soon after. I loved them all!! If you are looking for a photographer, look no further. You will not be disappointed!"
THE DAY COULDN'T HAVE BEEN BETTER PHOTOGRAPHED
We are in love with our wedding photos and there are so many we didn't even realise that Sophie was taking
"Where do I start... We are so grateful to Sophie for capturing our special day. Sophie was amazing throughout, from our engagement shoot, to the big day. We are in love with our wedding photos and there are so many we didn't even realise that Sophie was taking. We had a very grumpy toddler on there day and Sophie still somehow managed to capture the character and some fabulous family shots. We will forever be grateful to her."
