"First and foremost, Sophie’s photographs are absolutely stunning - we just can’t stop looking through them! They capture the essence of our day so perfectly and Sophie somehow managed to be everywhere at once, but never got in the way and was very discreet the whole time. The light and colour is beautiful, even in very difficult conditions such as the dark church or a dance floor filled with artificial light.
Secondly, and just as importantly, Sophie went to a huge effort to fit in and it was a real pleasure spending time with her on our wedding day: it’s a very personal and special time and could easily be ruined by a pushy or socially awkward photographer! Sophie made everyone feel very relaxed around her, which of course makes for much better photos! Her judgement, sense of humour and social skills are exactly what you need in a wedding photographer, and I would not hesitate to recommend Sophie to anyone”.
Whether you are hosting a charity ball, a book launch, a wedding anniversary party, a monumental birthday party, a family reunion, a christening or just a party for the sake of fun and celebration, SMP Weddings are available to photograph every moment.
I approach event photography in exactly the same way that I do with wedding photography, with a reportage style. Regardless of the size or venue, I will always focus on the essence of the event, photographing so as to bring it back to life with my images and telling the story in the most creative way.
Based in Cuckfield, Sussex, I usually photography events in the surrounding areas of Kent, Surrey, Brighton and London. Here is a small selection of some of the amazing events I have been lucky enough to cover:
