UK Wedding PhotograpHER & WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER
Hello, my name is Stéphanie and I’m a documentary wedding photographer and wedding filmmaker based in Birmingham in the UK. I love telling stories about people, places and their relationships with one another through film and photography. To me, films are like magic as they add extra layers on top of still photographs in the shape of people’s voices and mannerisms. There’s nothing quite like being able to watch and hear someone you love speak, laugh, and see them move. Sound can transport us back in time and evoke such strong emotions, and nowhere is that more apparent than on your wedding day. As for photography, I love the challenge of freezing moments in time; firing the shutter at just the right moment to capture a story in a single frame.
Contemporary wedding photography and wedding videography is about more than simply documenting an event. As well as recording the formal proceedings, I love searching for and capturing the most beautiful, funny or emotional moments, and weaving the pieces together at the end of the day into films and a set of photographs that showcase everyone in their best light.
Weddings are often one of the only times that extended families come together in one place. It’s one of the many reasons I love documenting them as there’s so much going on. Your wedding is a chance to celebrate as two and to begin a new chapter in your life together, but it’s also an opportunity to celebrate your relationships with your family and with your friends. It is my hope that when you look back at your wedding photos and films in years to come, that you don’t just remember your wedding day, but that hearing the voices of your family and friends and seeing your interactions with one another evokes a lifetime of memories.
March 2021 | A brief note about the pandemic
At the time of writing, the UK government’s roadmap for ending lockdown suggests that social restrictions on events such as weddings shall be lifted by 21st June 2021 at the earliest. Of course, a degree of uncertainty remains. It is a stressful and uncertain time to be planning a wedding and I understand that you will have lots of questions for potential photographers and videographers about contingency plans, insurance, rebooking postponed events & deposit policies. If you’re interested in booking me to film or photograph your wedding for you in 2021, please do get in touch and let me know as much as you can about your wedding plans and I will do my best to answer any pandemic related wedding questions you might have.
