SMP Wedding Photographer | Sussex | Reportage Photography

Welcome to SMP Weddings, the home of reportage wedding photography and photojournalism in Sussex.

As a documentary wedding photographer, I place intimate story telling at the heart of every wedding I shoot - the story, the people, the setting, the detail, the pride, the joy, the laughter, the love.

Wedding photography to me is all about creating a timeless set of images which will take you right back to the moment. The aim is to create images which are informal yet intensely atmospheric, with an intimacy that can only be created through a reportage style.

My photojournalistic approach to wedding photography involves listening and watching what’s happening around me without ever intervening or directing; I operate with discretion, remaining unobtrusive at all times. I photograph the day as it happens, anticipating moments and always looking for an interesting perspective.

Documentary photography is all about clever observations, decisive moments and crafting beautiful stories; I can't think of any other subject that I would rather document. I consider it a huge privilege to be invited into people’s worlds on a life changing day, a day when all the people they love most in the world are all in one place to celebrate two people finding each other.

I believe in marriage, I believe in making a promise to one other person, and that a wedding day can come in any form. Each wedding is unique and every couple is different, and from that stems limitless opportunities for creative storytelling and interesting observations. I genuinely consider myself lucky that I absolutely love what I do.

Some Kind Words

    “Sophie was recommended to us by a friend and I am so pleased she was there to capture our day in her unique contemporary style. I have received so many compliments on the beautiful images she tool, which really captured those special moments for us, our families, and all our friends. Her advice in putting together our book was invaluable and we now have a lasting memory of the flow of the day and everything that made it unique for us (including the polish vodka toasts!). I would not hesitate to recommend her again for her professionalism, talent and laid back manner. She has since become a good friend and will take some pictures of our baby later this year!”
