The Best Thing About Memories Is
... and the best thing about being a photographer is being able to capture those memories for you to enjoy, forever.
It may sound clichéd, but I truly believe in this philosophical statement. My name is Helen and I live near Honiton in Devon with my husband Stephen and my son. I guess that's the point of my business - all three of my children are now grown up.
When I got married, we had the choice of moving to a big city for the benefit of my husbands' work, or staying in the countryside. It was the latter we chose, because we wanted our children to have a tranquil life - a life of experiences that only somewhere like Devon could provide. For the most part, their life has been one of fun, joy and adventure, but children have a habit of growing. Before you know it, they've grown so much that they've flown the nest, so creating precious memories through photography is key to holding onto them once they've left.
That's why I love photography.
MORE ABOUT ME...
Southwestern England is a beautiful place to make those memories, and when not taking photos, one of my hobbies is exploring and visiting the coastline and the national treasures on my doorstep. I have also been fortunate enough to have travelled to many countries over my life, both with and without my children. In fact, it was while I was on a cruise that I found myself starting my photography journey by taking a simple photo of a sunset. That one, single sunset started my whole business. I was taken down a road uncertainty over what to do and how to do it. I know that to find success (or even greatness) in anything, you need to have the courage and drive to take the first step. I drew inspiration in my photography from the works of Serge Ramelli and Jason Lanier, slowly developing my skills as a landscape photographer whilst also discovering my interest in portraiture.
One of the best experiences I've had recently was during my recent visit to Italy, where I enjoyed some top-up training from an internationally-recognised wedding photographer. It was a fantastic experience and I came away with renewed creativity and the drive to be the best in what I do.
Learning from the brides I meet and listening to their stories allows me to achieve greater understanding of their desires. This allows me to express my creativity by delivering photos that visually convey those stories. I want you to have a photographer who cares about your needs and concerns, and who will do everything possible to make your special day and the planning of it as smooth as possible. I know planning a wedding takes time and energy, and this is one thing that is in short supply for everyone. I want to help you with that, if you will allow me; whilst I can't plan your wedding for you, I can be with you through the process and guide you on your way. I am happy to be there to answer questions you might not even know you need answering, and even help to link you up with other wedding suppliers.
So, if your wedding needs a caring and driven photography with top-of-the-line training and years of practical experience in the field, I may just be who you are looking for. If you'd like to see some examples of my work, please do check out my gallery page. I'm also just a phone call or email away if you&apo;sve any questions - please don't hesitate to contact me if you&aposd like a chat.
IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU
This is YOUR day, and I am there to capture the joy and fun of that day, not to intrude or limit the time you have with your family and friends with long photoshoots. I know that you want to spend as much time as you can with your loved ones. I will take as little time out of your day as possible - for example, setting the equipment up before calling you over, which means that you can spend more time with your guests.
On your Special Day, your wedding is the only one I will have booked, and your wedding will be my sole focus.
I don't share your day with anyone else. This is YOUR day only!
ONLY THE BEST
You need to ensure your photographs are professional and polished.
I am a member of the Guild of Photographers and am equipped with professional quality equipment.
LOVE YOUR SHOOT
Photography shoots shouldn't be stressful or boring
I love my photography and make sure your session is fun and relaxed and captures all the joy of the day.
I WOULD LOVE TO BE PART OF YOUR BIG DAY
Photographing your event is just as exciting for me as it is for you. If you would like to talk to me about my portrait or wedding packages, GIVE ME A CALL. I would love to hear from you.
A big thank you to all my clients who have taken the time to send me their comments
