Hi, Let me start by introducing myself, I’m Jen
I have been a Photographer for over 14 years now, I started out for the first 4 years as an amateur photographer, I Photographed Children, Horses and Dogs, I was holding down a job as well as going to Higher education to get the qualifications I needed to turn myself into Professional Photographer.
Two years into my amateur photography I was lucky enough to be commissioned to photograph a wedding in Winchester for a couple from Southampton.
I was totally bowled over at how much I loved this line of Photography, having to think on your feet, things changing in an instant, working with ever changing naturel light, and seeing things form a different view. I wondered if this would be the case for studio photography so I gave that a shot as well, however it wasn’t to be. I didn’t really enjoy it as much at all.
I find that my work is entirely about my love for shooting with available light and that was all there was to it.
Working with my strengths and improving my weaknesses (an on going education which inspires me) over the next two years I finally managed pass all the qualifications and gain enough experience to be able to get into the wedding photography business as a professional.
Over the years I have taken a quieter and more back seat approach on the actual wedding day itself. I have come to learn that the more naturel the interactions among the Bridal party and guests, with me being un-noticed is a far better outcome than being present in the forefront of the wedding.
I still get asked to Photograph children and pets at times and I find it so much fun. Children and pets can really make you smile with the things they come pout with and do.
In my spare time when I am not out with my dog walking and having fun, I could be found tucked up with a good book both educational and fictional.
Most clients describe me as Fun, Organised and amazing. My friends agree, they may also say I can be humorous, warm and courageous sometimes too!
I’m passionate about Photography because it allows me to capture the true beauty and memories of people in a classic style that never goes out of fashion.
My wedding photography service is something very personal to myself because I photograph a story that unfolds in front of my very eyes.
It’s truly an honour and a thrill to become part of the lives of each new couple that I work with every year, and to be chosen to capture the memories of the most important chapter in the story of their love. I accept a maximum of 15 weddings per year in order to form a relationship with every couple to provide them with an amazing, highly personalized experience and the best quality Photographs of their unique Wedding Day.
A pre-wedding consultation is a great way to get a clear idea of what you would like and how you envisage your wedding day going, many people have an idea of what they want and I don’t wish to disappoint them.
I’m a photographer with lots of imaginative ideas that’s fed on photographing people’s very different personalities. I really try to hone in on the fun photographic style that captures everyone. This helps people to forget that there is a camera there at all.
My aim is to bring you uniquely beautiful and contemporary photos of your unforgettable day So that you can look back at your album and remember it as if it were not just a memory but like it was only yesterday.
In the run up to your wedding I like to meet with the Bride and Groom for an engagement shoot (optional) so that we can get to know each other, putting any camera shy fears to one side.
As well as the main details we will also discuss the finer points for the day and anything you feel you would like to me ask about.
I want you to know that on your wedding day you can just sit back and enjoy, in the knowledge that you can trust me to have it all covered for you Leaving nothing for you to have to think about After all it’s about you, “The Bride & Groom” and the happy guests. I realise Weddings are very much about getting to know people as well as thinking on your feet. For me its also about, Meeting people and new experiences because no two weddings are ever the same. People’s personalities make your wedding photography if you get to know them and use this in your imagery, not forgetting to plan plan plan.
ALL wedding packages come with two photographers so that nothing is left to chance. The 2nd photographer can concentrate on those candid images that everyone forgets. This really adds to the fun of the day. In a nutshell, we can capture everything from the romantic poses and family portraits down to the little things that you may miss in a fast paced and very busy day.
I offer bespoke wedding digital albums, contemporary wedding books and a wide variety of products from canvases, photographs, framed choices and my new metal prints or acrylic blocks. You’ll definitely be spoilt for choice.
