Full Description
You’re probably overwhelmed with all the wedding information out there, but don’t worry you’re not alone. I’m here to help! I’m Laura – a wedding, couples and lifestyle photographer. Being Sussex-based I’m surrounded with some super gorgeous venues but I’m also very lucky to be able to travel around the UK and overseas too. Photography should reflect the moment and the feelings you had right at that very point. The value of it is precious and it should transport you right back to that time in years to come. If you’re looking for a photographer who doesn’t do cheesy awkward moments but does just capture the beauty, the fun, the love and everything in between, then I’m your girl! I work all across the UK and internationally with a base 8hrs cover starting from £1600 (depending on the time of year and distance travelled) with a fixed hourly rate of £200 thereafter.

Better than imagined
We hired Laura based on her excellent photography, editing skills and the way she was able to capture people in their natural element. We then fell in love with Laura as a person after our first meeting with how easy she was to talk to as well as her brilliant personality. On our wedding day, Laura did an amazing job in keeping my (now!) wife calm in the morning, as well blending in with our guests effortlessly throughout the day whilst continually working. We even hired Laura’s husband (Chris) for half a day as a second photographer to ensure every angle was captured! Both of them were incredible and made us feel at ease and natural in front of the camera so easily that it felt as though we have known them for years. The results of Laura’s work has also blown us away, it is better than we could have ever imagined in terms of the quality of the photos and we have incredible memories for life. We had the perfect wedding day, and Laura didn’t just capture it, but added to it too.

Amazing!
We hired Laura as our wedding photographer and it was the best choice we could have made. She produced the most amazing photos of our day which captured the atmosphere and joy perfectly. Laura not only gave us wonderful photos but she also was such a helpful and happy influence for the whole day. Laura brought so much professionalism to her work, knowing the best places to go for photos, where the lighting worked best and what time to sneak off to capture the perfect sunset photos. If you are still deciding on your photographer I would 100% recommend Laura!

Amazingly talented wedding photographer who will tell the story of your day with perfect pictures
Laura is more than just a wedding photographer, she is the fairy godmother of wedding photographers. From the second I made contact, to sobbing over the beautiful images she has created, Laura has been amazing. On the day, Laura made sure I stayed calm, looked gorgeous, had time with Neil and also that I even managed to eat, all whilst taking beautiful photographs in a non obvious way! If you have found yourself looking for the most incredibly talented photographer, you have just found her.

Photos and moments we will cherish for a life time
Laura was truly an amazing presence at the entirety of our wedding. Brilliant photographer who really put her heart and soul into getting the shot. She captured such special moments which we will cherish for a life time. She has a lovely personality which made all our guests feel so comfortable with having their photo taken, even telling us on the night and weeks after how great she was. She also calmed my nerves a lot, talking me through the parts of the day and helping me to just be in the moment. I would recommend Laura again and again. If you're looking for a photographer to enrich your wedding day and produce beautiful photos, she's your woman.

Magical moments captured forever
From the moment we met Laura, we knew that we had chosen well! She instantly put my future husband (someone who loathes having his photo taken) at ease before the day and captured the most special moments of our day just perfectly. Throughout the day, Laura made sure that my now husband and I were not too overwhelmed and took us away from our guests for some "time out" to soak up the atmosphere of the day just the two of us. Laura found the most beautiful places at our venue to capture the perfect shots, and our golden hour photos are just magical. While we had some formal photos for the mantlepiece, the majority were informal, capturing the laughter, warmth and love from all of our guests! I absolutely highly recommend Laura to capture the most special day of your life.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Honestly, there are just too many to mention! Each one has it's own thing - it might be awesome styling, a couple being super playful, a rocking ceilidh, grandad getting you in the face with a bucket of confetti, a heartfelt speech or a simple touching moment with a gran. It's all about the moments that make it memorable to each wedding. :D

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, intuitive, creative and honest with a traditonal nod.

What about your business are you most proud of?

That after 11 years in, I still love every wedding I capture and I still get giddy excited with every couple I meet. Every wedding is unique and I love the anticipation that brings because it allows me to capture the day uniquely.

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

Oh gosh, there are so many! With photography? Meet us beforehand - it makes such a difference to your day and ultimately your images when you get the first meet weirdities out of the way. On the day, trust us and just play - we can take a photo but we need you to bring you...call it a teamwork effort! Generally? Ask your suppliers for advice because they are goldmines of info. For the majority of couples, it's their first time walking down the aisle but a good supplier gets married easily 30+ times a year. They know so much more about what works, what doesn't and what can go wrong!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Anything that is putting the couple's personal stamp on the day - it's important to make the day truly yours and it makes for great conversation! I've loved gold dinosaur tablecentres, couple outfits with a twist, full on riots of colour throughout, mad ceilidh dancefloors and whisky/cigar bars, to name a few.

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

It's totally traditional but get that group shot of everyone, so you can look back when you're old and recall all the faces and characters that made up your day. It will quickly help evoke memories even beyond your wedding day and that's important.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Acceptance! You can never control it, so run with it, get the brollies out and make something of it as it's all part of your day and your memories. There are always photo opportunities when you least expect them.

Describe how you got into photography.

Once upon a time, we bought an awesome puppy and the rest was history! When we meet, I'll tell you all about it! :D
