Hi I’m Sharon – a very experienced Lincolnshire Wedding Photographer I got started in photography with an experience many you may have also had. I took my then 18 month year old son into a local Mothercare store for a set of “bargain” priced photos. Yes, you guessed it; he hated the experience and screamed the house down. However, being the doting mum, I bought all the pictures anyway and realized I could have done better myself. I was off and running , went to college and got some training, and eventually created “Little Cherubs ”
For years I was doing strictly children portraits, but was being asked more and more to do weddings. I decided it was time to give more people the opportunity to use my services and changed names and business direction and became Symply Photography. I put a fun spin on the spelling to match my initials SYM. Everything can’t be based upon Search Engine Optimisation these days!
My love for wedding photography has continued to grow as my clientele has grown. My son -who is now 28- got married recently so I can totally connect with the emotions of the day. You can usually find me offering comforting hugs and tissues to the brides mum at the moment she sees her daughter in the dress, ushering along brides with an eye on the clock, whilst keeping abreast of those little details that for those of us that enjoy a wedding every weekend become second nature.
A broad sense of humour often bears fruit, for example when I see the brides dad bounding from bathroom to bedroom in just his boxers (Dave and Jeff – you know who you are!) I laugh. A lot.
My couples will tell you that I take the time to know you and your story before I ever put you in front of the camera. I want you to feel like you’re being photographed through the eyes of a friend, not some acquaintance behind a camera.
“Sharon, you were the perfect photographer for our romantic wedding, and we would recommend you without hesitation. Your professionalism and sheer love of the work you do shines through in the finished result and we’re absolutely thrilled to bits with the memories that you’ve helped to perfectly capture for us. “

I have been mentored, and taught by some of the top photographers in the country – Damian McGillicuddy, Trevor Yerbury, Brett Harkness, Chris Chambers …..I know my craft.
If you are looking for someone who brings experience and personality to all that she does, I won’t let you down – you will be thrilled with your photos if you choose me to be your photographer (and if you’re not – well you don’t pay – and I leave the country hastily!)
If you want to have a chat about your photography over a cup of coffee – or a glass of wine contact me here.
