Kelly J Photography – Alternative Somerset Wedding Photographer » Alternative wedding photography and natural outdoor portraits in Somerset, UK

  • Welcome toKelly J Photography |pleased to meet you
  • Thanks for visiting my website, I'm so pleased that you've found me.

    I'm a documentary style wedding photographer who proudly calls Somerset my new home. Originally from North Wales I have travelled all over the country for work. I love getting to know couples and being involved in a little piece of their story. My style is unobtrusive, relaxed and natural. I like to capture moments as they naturally unfold in front of me. Quirky and bohemian weddings are my ultimate favourite.

    In addition to weddings I also photograph portrait sessions on-location, so if you'd like a family/couple/baby portrait shoot please get in touch.

This session involved three things that I love; 1) A couple who likes to do things their own way 2) fun props and 3) Oddfellows as a location! If you’re gonna have a quirky engagement shoot, there’s no better place to do it. With eccentric design, stag heads, an upside down room, Alice in Wonderland decor and animals dressed up in people clothes; You really can’t go wrong.

Danielle and Andrew are also tying the knot here in August and if the engagement shoot is anything to go by, I can’t wait to see what they have in store for the big day!

Nature is amazing, I love it so much. Nothing really makes me happier than being in a forest with the sound of the wind whistling through the trees, or running around like a crazy person in heavy summer rain.

When I take peoples pictures, I try and bring the environment into those photographs too, as the location is an important part of any shoot and inspires me in lots of ways.

I didn’t want my love for nature to stop at just the photoshoot however, I wanted it to translate through the whole experience a couple has with me. I desperately wanted to bring nature in to my products while keeping them as eco-friendly as possible. So here’s my brand new natural photography packaging for wedding clients..

As you can see, I’ve ditched the plastic casing and filling and replaced it with a beautiful engraved wooden box which contains a wooden USB. The box is filled with natural moss and scattered rosebuds and a few sample 6″ x 4″ prints are carefully tied together with twine. A little selection of chocolate treats are sent in a small hessian bag and all cards are made with recycled paper.

I ordered the gorgeous wooden box and USB from Wooden Banana – who specialise in natural photography packaging. They have several box options, including USB only boxes, square boxes and a box for USB and discs. You can even order a sample to see how your logo would look on a box.

The business and thank you cards were ordered from Moo.com (get 10% off your first order with this link) who have recycled paper options on lots of their printing products. Look for their ‘Green Business Cards’.

I found the Hessian Bagsfrom a UK company on Amazon and the Moss/Rosebuds came from florist in Hampshire.

If you have any more ideas on how I can keep my business as natural and eco-friendly as possible, please let me know. I’m always open to making positive changes that will help the environment.

This wedding was totally unlike most weddings I’ve ever been to. There was no cake cutting, instead they had a whole table of homemade cakes for people to just help themselves. There was no first dance, instead they had an ‘everybody first dance’. The bridal party played with nerf guns during the group shots. It was incredibly casual and that’s what I loved about this rainbow themed wedding.

Lara and Ben got hitched over the Easter holidays in The Bluebell Centre and whilst it was raining the entire day, nothing stopped this wedding from being bright, colourful and full of personality. The tables were prettily decorated with Daffodils, china cups and mini chocolate eggs. The barn was filled with bright coloured bunting and fairy lights and Lara and Ben had made 1,000 rainbow coloured origami cranes for the ceremony.

There was something even more special at this wedding that the guests weren’t anticipating. During Ben’s speech they announced their pregnancy with twins!

Also, isn’t that dress just wow!!

I love taking my camera somewhere new and last week it came on an adventure with me to Stourhead House and Gardens in Wiltshire. It took us a long time to get round everything at Stourhead, mainly because every two seconds there was something I wanted to stop and take a picture of. Lots of architectural detail, hidden grottoes and temples in the gardens, not to mention all the beautiful flowers and wildlife. I could so imagine photographing a wedding here.

I’d definitely recommend a day out here and see it for yourself. These pictures don’t even do justice to the scale of the more than 2,000 acre gardens that surround the lake. If it’s this good in Spring, I would love to see it in the Autumn.
