Full Description
Shiralee, that's me. I also answer to Mum and Nanny and have lived in Fobbing, Essex for the past 40 years. I love to capture those memories and fun moments of weddings in Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent and London, even as far away as Scotland. In fact the whole of the UK. Are you looking for a female wedding photographer who: Is unobtrusive and relaxed, with a natural style to her wedding photography? Captures the flow of the wedding day with portraits and groups in the mix? Who WON'T Go Home After the First Dance? Let's Party! If that's a Yes...Let's chat!

What is your most memorable wedding?

GOSH! All the weddings that I have had the pleasure of photographing over the years all hold a place in my heart for one reason or another. All weddings are so different I couldn't possibly choose.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unobtrusive, Understanding, Patient, Fun,

What about your business are you most proud of?

I started

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

Make a little time for yourselves

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

A bride had a handkerchief embroidered by her Mum and her Nan with her wedding date on it

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The first contact is normally made via email, a phone call or social media. After checking if I am available on the couples wedding day I like to make arrangements to meet so the couple so that they can see my work as framed prints and modern photobooks. This can be at the couples home or in a hotel lounge or in my office.

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

Some photographs with the older members of their families

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

This photograph was my idea. The Groom being towed along behind the Bride on her galloping horse ( I am a very good photo-editor)

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

We can normally get photos done between the showers or if it is 'in for the day' we can always photograph inside

Describe how you got into photography.

I started my photographic career by photographing my children and their ponies. Which I did for many years. I soon found my real passion was photographing Weddings. I love nothing more than freezing moments in time. Back in 1995 was given the opportunity to photograph for TA1 Motorsport. I was employed as a traveling photographer which involved traveling to all of the Race tracks in the U.K. My photographs were used in Race Car Magazines. Which was a fabulous job my weekends were free so I could follow my passion for Wedding Photography. In 2007 I started to work as a Senior Photographer for a Regional Newspaper during which time I photographed all members of the Royal Family and photographed lots of things most photographers don't get the opportunity to photograph. My photographic journey has taught me to stay calm when others may be panicking.
