SMP Weddings, Sussex | About Me | Sophie Mitchell

SMP Weddings is a two woman team made of myself, reportage wedding photographer, Sophie Mitchell, and Studio Manager, Kate Gee. As a wedding photographer based in Sussex, I have been privileged to attend weddings across London, Brighton, Sussex, Kent and Surrey and have shot in some of the UK’s finest and most beautiful venues, including Blenheim Palace, The Mandarin Oriental, The May Fair Hotel, Woburn Abbey, to name a few.

Find out more about wedding photographer, Sophie:

Hello, I'm Sophie, a Sussex based wedding photographer, living in the idyllic and utterly beautiful village of Cuckfield, West Sussex - 20mins north of Brighton, 45 mins south of London. Born in 1977, I’m the youngest of three girls, mother of two boys and wife to my first love. I shot my first wedding in 2007 after leaving a career as a TV producer to study for a photography degree. I love being a wedding photojournalist, and I am constantly using my experience of documentary making in my storytelling and my very unobtrusive way of working. Photojournalism is all about clever observations, decisive moments and crafting beautiful stories; weddings are absolutely full of them. Your wedding day is this heady mix of euphoria and emotion, so having the right wedding photographer is fundamental. I remain unobtrusive, and never interfere with the dynamic of the day; I’m constantly looking for an interesting perspective, the perfect light, the decisive moment. I think it’s only fair since I immerse myself in my clients’ lives that I divulge a little about myself and the things that I enjoy, so check out my blog article here if you want to know even more!

And here’s more about Studio Manager, Kate:

Kate is the SMP Wedding’s front of house, exuding warmth and a love of all things weddings. Kate is the first point of call; she will answer any initial questions regarding your wedding photography needs, and will generally be an oasis of calm and capability in what can sometimes be an overwhelming time.
Kate will respond to all initial wedding enquiries, put together quotes, set up the pre-wedding consultation meeting (this is where we get to meet and chat about the wedding), liaise with clients in the lead up to the wedding and if required put together wedding albums. Kate is a writer with experience of working on the picture desk at Hello magazine so has a wonderful eye and sense of narrative.
At SMP Weddings I shoot in a very intimate way, telling the story of the day through a reportage set of images. Kate’s role is to ensure that this philosophy is carried out from initial enquiry right through to the delivery of the images, ensuring that all SMP Weddings clients are given a very bespoke and intimate service throughout – your happiness is our primary goal. So, where to go from here?
