Afternoon gorgeous peeps and what a lovely one it is too! This weather is making me so excited about the summer and all the awesome weddings taking place this year at our lovely venues. Not long now until wedding season officially starts in May! If you are a May bride then I hope everything is going well in the last stages of your planning. We’re here if you need us so please do drop us a line if you need any help and remember to check out our festival wedding directory for details on some of the UK’s best outdoor suppliers.
Talking of which, we are sharing one of those very suppliers with you today! Ladies and Gents, allow me to introduce you to Sally of Rose Images. A documentary style wedding photographer who promises to capture your wedding in a fun, natural and unobtrusive way – you won’t even notice she’s there! She describes her style as being relaxed and colourful and loves to capture both creative and candid moments as they happen. One thing I noticed straight away from the images we are sharing with you today is the happiness in the faces of each couple Sally has captured. Special moments like these are the ones you are going to treasure for the rest of your married life and it takes a good photographer (who can get themselves in the right position without being in the way) to capture these moments.
Here’s our Q&A with Sally all about her photography style, how she got into capturing weddings and what you can expect if you were to book her for your wedding day….
Tell us a little about yourself?
Hi! I’m Sally Rose, I’m 29 and living my lifelong passion of photography working as a professional photographer in London. I live in South East London – right next to Greenwich.
Along side weddings I also shoot Fashion & portraiture. I love that my job is so varied – It means that I never get bored and it keeps me on my toes. I couldn’t be more grateful for the career I have. I absolutely love what I do.
Apart from photographing I also love traveling and being in the sun! I have a huge list of places I want to visit, but fell in love with Australia. I’m also a huge fan of festivals and love the idea of this as a wedding theme!
Despite chasing the sun most of the year, I absolutely love Christmas and all things festive (my favourite film ever is Home Alone).
If you had a chance to go to any music festival, which one would it be?
Well I’m a huge fan of Glastonbury – I’ve been going every year since I was just 18 months old! My dad used to have a stall there and so I was brought up attending Glastonbury – I’ve only missed a 2 years and that was in order to shoot a couple of weddings! This will always be my festival of choice!
I would also love to go to some more abroad weddings – Coachella looks amazing and Burning Man is definitely on my bucket list!
What made you decide to start Rose Images?
Back when I was still studying photography I started doing the odd wedding for friends and family and I started to get asked more and more. I realised I wasn’t half bad at it! Plus I really enjoyed them – it made sense to start focusing on this more and so I started Rose Images. I’m so happy I did.
Tell us a little bit more about your photography style?
When it comes to capturing your big day my aim is to provide you with beautiful photos that you can cherish forever, whilst at the same time making sure not to be too intrusive on the day. My style is relaxed, natural and colourful. I like to take a documentary approach and capture both creative and candid moments as they happen, showing real moments that reflect your big day. Each wedding is unique and I love show this through my photography from the tiny details to the big moments. Along side capturing the candid stuff and I love creating special portraits of you both – again making sure to keep these natural and relaxed – almost as if I’m not there.
I love to travel so should your wedding take us further a filed – I’d more then happily come with you.
What are some of your favourite memories + experiences from previous weddings/couples you’ve worked with?
Ah I have so many! I don’t think I could pick a favourite! What I do know is that pretty much all of my favourite memories / experiences include lots of laughter. I love happy couples – it’s lovely to see people smile and capture those moments on camera. I also love being creative and working with couples that trust me to get great shots.
If our readers were to book you for their wedding, what can they expect?
Well most importantly then can expect a photographer who really cares about their wedding and dedicates themselves to the day. I never want to miss a moment yet make sure to remain unobtrusive at the same time. I’d never dream of taking over your day – I like to blend in and capture the real moments that tell the true story of your day.
I offer two main packages ‘Silver’ & ‘Gold’ – However I completely understand that every wedding is different and so both packages can be adapted to suit your needs.
I also offer additional items such as extra hours, printed wedding albums, engagement shoots.
What’s your best piece of advice for couples who’re trying to choose their photographer?
Well the most important thing is to make sure you like the photography – this is the key element!
Alongside this I also think it’s important to make sure you get along with your photographer – you’ll be spending the whole day with them! Choose someone you trust too. I always encourage a pre-wedding meeting and include this in all my packages.
Finally, what’s your life quote/motto?
Never stop learning
Time for some lunch in the sun me thinks!
