I've been photographing weddings since 2007 and am always blown away by the gorgeous things that my couples write to me and about me... it's very humbling and a real buzz at the same time. Making people deliriously happy with their images and giving them beautifully wrapped memories is a huge gift to us wedding photographers. Each and every wedding that I shoot, I immerse myself in it, I spend time chatting to my couples before the wedding, and hours pouring over the images post wedding. I have a stack of hand written thank you cards, which are all very special, it's a great feeling to know that you've done a good job and really captured the essence of a wedding.
Anyone reading this and looking for the most incredible photographer for your special occasion, look no further. You have found her!
Having researched online and asked for recommendations, I feel very fortunate that I found you Sophie! People mainly told us about their horror stories with pushy and demanding photographers. Few had talked about a ‘click’ with a photographer. And a ‘click’ between us all is what definitely happened with Sophie.
Firstly, when I saw her photographs I cried. She tells a story – and it’s not a posed story, or a forced story. There is emotion jumping off the page when you look at her gallery. I knew Jes, my now husband, would get on like a house on fire with her. Soph just seemed to instantly ‘get’ what we were looking to create. No hours of couple and family photos, moving to different locations when all you want to do is be with your friends and family. No ‘look this way, hold that, stand there’ type of experience!
I listened carefully when Soph said that she was just like a wedding guest, the only difference – she would have a camera around her neck! Soph said that we would not even know she was there. I wasn’t too sure about that part – as for me, I am not keen on being the centre of attention, however, Soph was right, I totally forgot she was with us. From the moment Soph joined us at the house when the girls were getting ready, she just blended in. It just felt like another friend had joined us.
We have no idea how she has taken so many natural, spontaneous shots of everyone and none of us realised. Soph has single handedly captured our entire day just like reading a wonderful book that you can’t put down. Our images are gorgeous. She has caught the emotion, the fun, the reflection – everything.
We cannot recommend Sophie highly enough. She is the best money you will ever spend! Her photos are magical and will give you memories to last a lifetime.
Thank you so, so much Soph for all you did for us, and for making our wedding the magical day that it was.
With lots of love from us to you - Susie and Jes xxxx
"We spent quite a while looking for a photographer and after meeting with Sophie we knew that she would be perfect and her style of photography was exactly what we were looking for.
Her fun personality put us both at ease on the day and made us feel very comfortable throughout, such a lovely person.
The finished pics got sent to us so quickly after the wedding, which was a great surprise to come back to from our honeymoon.
The photos are absolutely perfect , each one holding so many amazing memories, which we will look back on for years to come .
Thanks again. T+K xx"
"We absolutely loved having Sophie as our photographer for our big day! She was so much fun and made us feel relaxed and at ease. Sophie really captured the joy of our wedding day, we LOVE the photos! She’s also been super helpful ever since with editing and printing. I will be recommending Sophie to everyone I know who is getting married and wants a lovely and talented photographer!" Jo and Doug, Wickwoods Country Club
"Just to say we LOVE the photos. In my mum’s words, they are 'outstanding'! Neither Danny or I are known for being particularly comfortable in front of the camera but there are so many lovely shots here. I can't stop looking at them! Thanks so much again for everything. My sister is also over the moon at the gorgeous photos of her kids and there's a particularly beautiful one of my Nana that I will treasure forever. THANK YOU.” Emma and Danny
“A huge thank you for all your efforts on our special day, it meant a lot to have a friendly face with us. Your photos really are fantastic and we can’t wait to fill our various photo frames and album. Thank you so much” Sophie and Ben
“Sophie, I'm actually emotional from it all! You've told the story from start to finish. You've captured everybody's emotions effortlessly... I'm touched and speechless, you're a true star!” Davina and Purvin
"Sophie is just amazing. We looked at lots of different photographers, but once we spoke to Sophie and looked at her images, we knew she was the right fit for us. We are both fairly camera shy, and it was really important to us that our photos were as natural looking as possible.
Sophie’s photojournalistic style really worked for us, she made us and all our guests so comfortable; she was completely unobtrusive but reactive at the same time. And the photos are just beautiful! We could not be happier with them.
Seriously, if you’re in Sussex or London and want gorgeous, natural photos, Sophie’s your woman!" Sophia and Jack, Pangdean Old Barn
"Sophie was completely fabulous. The images she took of our wedding at Ockenden Manor in Sussex exceeded our expectations. Sophie completely captured our day with wonderfully natural photos. Not only was she extremely professional, but she was also helpful and supportive on the day. We will treasure these wonderful images." Jane and Gerry, Ockenden Manor
"Wow Soph, we could not be happier with the images from our wedding, thank you so much!
You not only captured the feel of of our super emotional day but the photos really reflect the individual personalities of our guests!
Thanks again for working with us at such short notice and for being a special part of our day. Bernie & Lou Streeter. X" Bernie and Lou, Ockenden Manor
"Sophie is so down to earth, friendly & fun, she made us feel at ease running up to the wedding & on the day, it was like a friend was taking them. A lot of my guests commented how nice she was, joking around with them and she was everywhere getting pictures of us and our guests and now we have so many lovely pictures that really do tell the story of the day.
I would highly recommend Soph and just want to say a big thank you for everything, we are so happy with the end result & it was a pleasure meeting you." Nat and Dan. The Coach House Brighton
"Sophie was responsive from the off and came all the way to meet us and see our church and venue before the wedding. She is warm and friendly and we felt comfortable and knew that she would be an asset on the day.
At the wedding itself, Sophie was discreet but also chatted to us and the guests naturally to get the best smiles. She was a joy to have around and I would have no hesitation in recommending.
Sophie is super talented and also a lovely person to be around - thoroughly recommended." Jess and Steve, The Bingham Riverhouse, Richmond
"Sophie snapped us getting married in January 2015 in Stoke Newington. I knew she was going to be good when she said she'd get there early to get a feel for the area! As a result our pics are truly atmospheric and full of context and meaning.
Sophie blends right in, so you completely forget she's there, and she picks up on all the subtleties and humour of the day too, so naturally.
When it comes to capturing the moment, she's just got it. Comes more than highly recommended." Saskia and Gerry, Stoke Newington Town Hall
"Sophie achieved the impossible by making two camera-shy and awkward people feel completely comfortable and it shows in every shot.
Our wedding day was the happiest and most magical day for us, you wonder if that can ever really be caught on camera but Sophie did just that.
We look at our wedding photos all the time, they bring back such happy memories and what’s amazing is half the photos came as complete joyful surprises as no one noticed Sophie taking them! Choosing a photographer is not just about the end result of course, they are part of your day and Sophie fitted in so well with all our guests and clearly put every one at ease meaning she got beautifully natural shots. So many of our guests were thrilled to see photographs of themselves and their family that they love…we only have to go to their homes and see those photographs on display to know that.
Sophie’s amazing photographs transport us back in an instant to the happiest of days, we will treasure them. Thanks Sophie. Sophia & Dan
"Sophie was fantastic from initial email to our finished, edited photographs. We chose Sophie because of the quality of her pictures and her storytelling style.
One other important thing to review is Sophie being there on the day...she was fantastic, so bubbly and warm...always there but never once felt in the way or intruding on anything.
My husband hates having his picture taken but likes a laugh so Sophie appeased him throughout the private shots of just us (which I requested!).
I love photography, but how anyone can stay on their feet for that long, with lots of equipment and still be happy and helpful I don't know!
Anyway - look no further, just book Sophie, she will be amazing." Jude and Dave, Old Luxters Barn, Henley
