This month I would like to introduce you to Sophie Duckworth, who in my opinion is one of the best wedding photographers out there- thats a pretty strong statement isn't it!
I have had the pleasure of working with Sophie several times now and I am always bowled over by her professionalism, calmness on a job and skill of always getting the shots no matter the situation.
We asked Sophie to write us a blog piece about what she is often asked by her clients. I then received what you are about to read, which in my opinion is full of passion and love for what she does, so pretty fitting for the month of February. I hope you fall in love with her like we have............
"Having been in this business for close to six years, I’ve been asked a number of questions from my couples, but the one that stands out is ‘what do you need from us in terms of the photography?’. The answer is simple, and always the same. Be yourselves. A wedding is not a photo shoot, it will probably be the most important day of your life so far, it marks the start of a marriage. Yes, it’s a brilliant excuse to bring together your closest friends and family and to have a right good knees up, it’s the perfect opportunity to find your dream wedding outfit, be it a dress from that designer you’ve been cooing over since you started your wed min research, or a bespoke suit from those ever exclusive tailors. For flower lovers like myself, it’s probably the only time you’re going to blow a large sum on the most beautiful bouquets and centrepieces, go big or go home I think is the phrase?
When you begin to add up what’s involved in creating your dream day it all gets a bit overwhelming. It’s hard to stick to budgets when suddenly you discover that Marryoke is possibly the best thing since sliced bread, as well having that precious five-minute wedding video to reminisce over.
