SOMERSET WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I’m Kelly, a Somerset wedding photographer based in Shepton Mallet. I’m originally from North Wales (on the border, near Chester) so I often still shoot weddings up there too. I’ve been a wedding photographer for 6 years now and it’s been a blessing; I get to meet lots of new people, all the time, I get to be a part of the best day of two peoples lives and best of all, I’ve made the most amazing friends.
My work has been featured on Rock N Roll Bride, Boho Weddings, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, English Wedding Blog, Bespoke Bride, Marry Me Ink, Cwtch The Bride, The Wedding Community and more.
My wedding photography style is natural, informal and fun. I specialise in alternative & DIY weddings but I photograph every kind of wedding, as the most important aspect of photographing a wedding to me, is capturing the personality and individuality of each one – No two weddings are the same and that’s what I love about them.
ALL IN THE DETAILS
After months of crafting your wedding and picking out all the little details to make your day perfect, I’ll be there to capture all of it. The centre pieces, the flowers, the handmade bunting..
PORTRAITS & POSING
My approach is less about stiff awkward poses and more about you interacting as a couple. It should feel like you’re just hanging out together but with a few directions from me in between.
Having me around in the morning not only gives me a chance to photograph you getting ready as well as the dress, the shoes, flowers etc. but it also serves as an ice breaker, meaning by the time the ceremony comes, you’ll already be used to having a camera around and some of your guests will feel more comfortable in my presence… which always makes for great photos.
I like to be as discreet as possible during the ceremony, whether you have it in a Church, a hotel venue or outside. I reserve picture taking for the most important moments so you won’t be distracted by clicking noises all the way through the service.
Candid photos are my favourite part of any wedding. I love taking documentary style images to show the true happenings of the day. The laughs, the tears, Grandad getting tipsy…
My approach to capturing natural moments is to be a fly on the wall and take pictures without people realising I’m there. I also like to get to know your guests throughout the day which makes it easier for me to blend in.
There is a much more relaxed atmosphere during the reception than any other part of the day. This is the perfect time for candids! Not limiting coverage also means I don’t leave as soon as the first dance is over. I stick around to photograph as many guests dancing as possible, as well as any surprises you have planned. If you need me there for a sparkler exit or evening fireworks… no problem!
