Storytelling Wedding Photographer & Filmmaker

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I’m a wedding photographer and wedding filmmaker, based in Birmingham and documenting weddings locally across the Midlands, Cotswolds and Peak District as well as further afield around the UK.

I offer full coverage wedding photography and wedding filmmaking collections, as well as a hybrid collection that includes the production of a fun and detail packed 3 minute music driven ‘highlights’ film alongside your full set of wedding photos.

I often film and photograph solo but on busier days or when shooting hybrid my husband Ed joins me to film and photograph alongside me, offering full coverage.

The Look & Feel of 35mm Film

I love the look and feel of analogue film, especially the colours, the texture, and the dreamlike, nostalgic feeling that film conjures up, and this is reflected in my style and approach to equipment when documenting weddings. In the fast paced world of weddings I shoot on digital cameras that can handle the darkest churches to the brightest summer days, using a combination of modern lenses and lenses from the film era adapted to digital.

In post-production, I echo the colours, texture and mood of contemporary 35mm film, giving your wedding images and films a timeless, magical feel. I deliver all images and films in high resolution (4K for films). It really is the best of both worlds!

Relaxed, Natural Storytelling

Above all, my approach to wedding photography and filmmaking is very relaxed. I really enjoy searching for and capturing all the little details, emotions and fleeting moments of a wedding day, and I love to do this in a way that keeps things fun and easy for you, your family and your friends.

Whether I’m filming or photographing your wedding, you can be sure that I’ll be quietly working away behind the scenes capturing all the little details and moments to help you relive your wedding day for years to come.
