Full Description
Hey! I’m Elaine, the often witty, ever-so-slightly kooky girl behind Elaine Williams Photography. I adore photographing wedding days as they unfold, snapping the quiet moments and the more chaotic ones. Wild oversized bouquets and wilder confetti throws are my jam. Sound like your cup of tea?

The images you captured are just magical
Thank you so much for being the best & loveliest photographer we could have ever asked for. The images you captured are just magical - I think you are both a ninja & a genius! Having a camera in my face & around me all day long was one of the things I was most apprehensive about when we started planning out wedding. However with you behind the lens it was a pure pleasure & that was all down to how lovely you were. Thank you forever! All our love, Laurie & Michael.

Thank so you so much - we love them!!!
Thank so you so much - we love them!!! We has such a fun day (it ended with hot tub fun and dancing on the tables until 3am...!) and we were so glad you were there to capture our service and us on that day as it was so much more than we imagined it would be! Thanks once again - it is our first morning of our honeymoon so we looked at them over our first breakfast in Aruba!

I'm crying looking at them!
I just wanted to say the biggest THANK YOU for our wedding photos! I have zero control so I opened them immediately and have praised you to every person since! They are absolutely outstanding!!!! How beautiful, autumnal, farm beauty and romantic they are! They are absolutely perfect! I'm crying looking at them! I honestly love that you captured the day from start to finish - not just the wedding but the atmosphere, the vibe, the chilled out aspects, the wee dogs, the candles! It's like stepping back into the day and reliving not just the main moments but every single delicious minute! I also love that the photos are not just a standard "wedding" style - you captured moments in mirrors, or through doors, behind glasses and in the most wonderful candid way. Thank you so much from both Eliot and I!

her attention to detail is fantastic
Elaine was brilliant!!.. she made us feel so comfortable during our photoshoot and understood exactly what we wanted…the finished product was absolutely stunning and memories we can cherish forever. It’s been a joy to share them with family and friends. No moments of the day were missed and her attention to detail is fantastic, particularly with colours/flowers. All our friends and family were captured looking happy and reflecting the fun we all had. Thank you Elaine!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

modern, contemporary, storytelling, reportage, documentary

What about your business are you most proud of?

the support I provide couples not only on their wedding day, but in the months leading upto it.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Consider your timings carefully to ensure you have enough time on the day to enjoy it and spend time with family and friends.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

When a couple first gets in touch, I'll work with them to ensure the package is the right fit. It's also super important to me that I'm right for them! The best photographs happen when I've build a relationship with the couple before their wedding day, rather than turning up like a stranger. So in the months before the wedding we'll stay in touch over emails, or grab a coffee if local.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Every couple should prioritise candid, natural photographs. I'm told so often that couples don't like having their photograph taken, or always look awful. I find that by keeping things relaxed couples are more at ease and soon relax into what feels natural for them.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

don't worry about it! We can't control the weather so we'll deal with it on the day. It's always good to have some nice wedding brollies on standby just incase.
