Reel Life Photos

When brides and grooms come to choose their wedding photos, they look for expressions they like, so this is what I aim to capture – natural rather than too many posed pictures. Over the years I have photographed weddings all over the world, twice in Australia, France & The Ice Hotel in Sweden, five weddings in The Gambia, a Punjabi wedding in Norway, a Bedouin wedding in Jordan, a beach wedding in The Seychelles, two weddings in Cyprus, a Christian Orthodox wedding in Egypt, a mixed Sikh-English wedding in Cyprus, a Catholic-Hindu wedding in Southern Ireland, cultural weddings in Pakistan and Nigeria, and many unusual weddings all over the UK: Humanist, interfaith, an outdoor wedding in the woods in Leeds in the middle of winter, Chinese weddings with huge 14 sitting banquets and traditional tea ceremonies, African weddings where the couple begin dancing straight after their church ceremony, and hundreds of Asian weddings with all their colourful traditions spread over 3 or more days. So wherever your wedding is, whatever faith, culture or style, I am up for it! My husband Jorge, is our multi-skilled cameraman and video editor, so you can also have us as a team. Our last wedding abroad was in Iceland – for just a bride and groom, on top of a mountain – so we never know where we will be capturing happy moments next.
Enjoy looking at the thousands and thousands of wedding pictures we have on Reel Life Photos Facebook Page, and get in touch if you fancy having a happy wedding photographer share your dream day.

How would you describe your style?

Happy, natural, with a sprinkling of posed pics - as that is the only way the bride and groom ever stand near each other, other than during their vows, meal, and first dance. I always look for patches of light - be it sunlight of artificial light to get the best out of our couples

What do you love about weddings?

I love the drama, the passion, the emotions - and often have tears in my eyes as the bride and groom say their intensely personal wedding vows - the families and friends all happy and excited - and the visual feast of colours and light as the day evolves, so count me in! (Name on the table plan too please and veggie meal so I can be full of energy all day long!) xx Elaine

What advice would you give to couples looking for their perfect wedding photographer?

Research the name and company of your chosen wedding photographer, so see what you can find out about them online before booking - even checking the third or later pages on Google. If you can't meet with them, at least chat first so you get a feel for their personality, to make sure you will enjoy their company and get on well on the day. Try and look at whole weddings they have shot too, rather than just a select few images. Don't just ask the price and walk away. Remember that photographers are people with feelings too, so a brief reply to emails they send, even if you have chosen someone else, makes all the difference to life and happiness and don't give up hope if then person you want appears outside your price range; many photographers will help you if you show how much you really like their work , and some even offer staged payments after the wedding to spread the cost. After all, once the food has been eaten and the day has flown by, the joy of looking forward to reliving the memories is something most couples treasure. I still look at my late parent's wedding photos taken by my grandfather (also a wedding photographer) and see how young and beautiful they once were...
