Beautiful Photography from Amy Scaife
* * * BIG NEWS!! For 2018 we are living and working in Vancouver, Canada! Back in London Jan 2019 * * *
So. Many. Photographers.
There sure are a lot of us here, all vying for your attention. So what sets me apart? Why would you pick me?
I am calm in the chaos. Quietly observant, picking up the small, sweet details and those big bursts of laughter. All the things that make your heart burst on the day but pass by in such a whirl that it’s now gone midnight and the red light of the last taxi has twinkled out in the distance and you think to yourself, ‘What just happened? Did that all just happen? Did someone press fast-forward when I woke up this morning?’.
But it’s ok, because I caught it all on camera, how wonderful you both looked, how elated you were as you looked at each other. Pictures that your future selves, your friends and grandchildren will smile and sigh, ‘wow you look so beautiful and happy!’ over.
I am experienced, creative, good humoured and reliable. I will listen to what you want and work hard to make it happen. I will take some time to get to know you a little. I won’t make you stand in a field clutching a vintage camera and a bird cage unless you are indeed a vintage camera and bird cage enthusiast. I will deftly herd your excited & distracted family and loved-ones through the formal portraits, and leave you time to enjoy your reception.
And I’ll have a great time doing it too. Because I love a good wedding, and yours will be the greatest!
Bright, warm, creative storytelling.
Weddings are one of the few traditions left where we get together and celebrate each other, unity and hope for the future. I love their pure optimism. The multi-generational appeal. I especially love how they are becoming ever more inclusive, Hooray for legalised gay marriage! Weddings that hold also special appeal are those that pay thoughtful attention to the unique aspects of the couple, and those that bring in, mix and mash up interesting wedding traditions from across the globe.
Love it. No travel costs within the M25, for further afield and abroad, talk to me, we can work something out.
Starting Price: £850 for a half day (4 hours), includes online gallery & USB.

Any captured the vibe of our wedding so perfectly and it wasn't the easiest wedding to shoot! Two venues plus a walk down to the seafront, but she managed brilliantly and we couldn't be happier with the results. Very highly recommended :) thanks Amy! X
Amy was fantastic, considering we really had no idea what we wanted, hence gave her very little direction, the photos were a stunning representation of the day. The USB "suprise" was awesome!
We couldn't have asked for any more than the photos Amy took on our very special day! From our first meeting, weeks before the wedding, we knew that Amy was the right person, she had more ideas than us! Amy even took the time to go to our wedding venue and look around for the best places to photograph. On the day Amy was professional and friendly and blended in with all our guests. The photos captured the day perfectly, from the ceremony to the reception drinks, the speeches and the food. We have had many comments from our guests about Amy's photos, my Mother has looked at them MANY times and has said she cries every time as they capture the day brilliantly! We have even had guests ask us if Amy was a personal friend of ours! I can highly, highly recommend.
Amy was fantastic. She worked really hard all day and the photos she took are amazing – she completely captured all the fun, laughter and emotions of our wedding. The photos for us were so important I felt from the start that we were in good hands. She 100% knows what she is doing and how to capture the atmosphere. She has given us invaluable memories of our day....as alot of it was a blur! I recommend her highly. Jane x
Amy was BRILLIANT. She is a super talented photographer. Totally captured the vibe and atmosphere. She gave us lots of lovely pics of guests and family in moments when we didn't even realise she was snapping. Basically, not in a bad way... but I didn't even notice she was there for most of it! We didn't want anything staged but she still managed to ensure we got all the shots we could ask for - and more. She was also really amenable to any questions or requests or adds afterwards. I could not recommend Amy more highly - you will have no complaints.
Amy is a really talented photographer with a great eye and a joy to have around on your wedding day. She captured beautiful moments in a very natural way and also quite discreetly, without interrupting the flow of things which is exactly what we had wanted. Thanks very much!
A huge thank you to Amy for capturing our wedding this year! Amy simply did a superb job! The shots are creative, natural, multi-dimensional and totally bring us back into the sights, sounds, smells and full experience of our wonderful wedding day. We were mostly interested in photography that told the real story of our day - the joyous moments, the laughter, the bloopers, the tears, the pride, the dance moves - and she certainly delivered. And, to our surprise and delight as a camera shy couple, even the orchestrated photos turned out beautifully! Thank you so much Amy and big time recommendations to those looking for a wedding photographer with natural flare and true talent :-)
