Symply Beautiful, Relaxed Photography
100% satisfaction guaranteed.
Yes – but what does that mean?
It means that I am so confident you will absolutely love your wedding photos – that I don’t ask for the outstanding balance until you have seen your photos – (although I do ask for £200 deposit to secure your date).
Go around all the other wedding suppliers and photographers and ask if they will do that – I can pretty much bet that everyone will want your money BEFORE the wedding has taken place. My business adviser, and other photographer colleagues are horrified I do this – what a risk they say! What if they don’t pay?
Well- all I can say is that I’ve been doing this for 25 years now – and I’ve been paid every time 🙂
Why Symply Photography?
Overall Style: My images are relaxed, crisp, and timeless. Above all, I love capturing the humor and joy of each moment.
Editing: I aim for a clean, natural editing style. Instead of photos with heavy editing (which can quickly look dated), you will be able to love your images your whole life!
Shooting Style: While photographing you, I provide expert directions that flatter your body, and then I use prompts and simple games to make you forget all about the camera. I know just what to say to help you relax, laugh, and feel completely comfortable
Before the Wedding
Long before the photos even start, I’m here to help. I love to use my 25 years of wedding experience to guide you, and I always respond to your messages quickly!
During our very first meetup, I’ll create a timeline for your wedding day so that you can see how the day will unfold. I’ll show you the package options that fit you the best, and answer any questions you might have (as well as a few you haven’t thought of yet).
As we get closer to your wedding, I’ll provide you with my handy Wedding Day Planning Page, which will help to gather up all the information we need to make your day run smoothly.
From “what time do I start hair and makeup to be ready for photos?” to “who should be in the family group ?”, I will walk you through each step of the day.
At the Wedding
I use prompts, games, and enthusiastic, simple directions to help your photos feel (and look) natural and relaxed. I apply that same approach to the photographs with your family. And what about the candid moments that go by in a flash?
I’ve trained my ear to pick out those bursts of laughter before they happen. I’ve learned that asking “what do you think- doesn’t she look beautiful?” will make even the toughest dad start to tear up. I know just when to tell you to “turn a little bit that way”, because I see in the corner of my eye that grandma is coming over to hug you, and I want the light to hit your smiling face juuuuust right as the moment unfolds.
I’m well-practiced at being in just the right place, at just the right time.
And those first dance photos – give me some fancy moves and I’ll catch them!
