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?
"We just can't thank her enough and would most definitely recommend her." Jane & Jon

My Style

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.

"Sharon brings out the genuine happiness out of everybody she photographs, resulting in incredible candid photos, even in posed ones! She's amazing, stop reading this and hire her!" Sarah & Matt

"All apprehensions went away from the first time we met Sharon. She is so good at making everyone feel comfortable in front of a camera. She is also a ninja - often times, I didn't even know where she was! I am so incredibly grateful for Sharon. I would recommend her a million times over" Steph & James

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!

Client Testimonials

Kind Words

"I was the Celebrant for a wedding where Sharon was the photographer. As an officiant it is very important that the photographer is sensitive to what is happening in the wedding ceremony whilst collecting the best photographs for their client. Right from the very beginning it was obvious that Sharon was fully aware of what was important to her clients and what she wanted to achieve for them. However she was also keen to know if there were any ways in which she could ensure that the ceremony went smoothly. I was able to trust her completely. And the photographs were brilliant - totally capturing the mood of the day. Highly recommended all round".
Ruby Beech - Celebrant
