And thank you for visiting Lisa Elem Photography. I'm a UK based wedding and event photographer. I regularly travel between Essex and Cornwall and cover the surrounding counties, London, throughout the south of England and beyond. I hear the Seychelles are quite nice!
No matter whether you're planning a town hall do, traditional church wedding or humanist celebrant-led ceremony in the woods, I'd be thrilled to be chosen as your photographer. My job is to give you a collection of unique, beautiful, funny and heart-warming photos to help you remember that amazing day you married your favourite human. Also, I love weddings.
PHOTOS TO REFLECT THE MOOD - I'd describe my preferred style as documentary rather than overly posed - quirky and fun, often colourful, sometimes serious, moody and of course romantic. Being a fan of all things vintage I love the look of film and the timelessness of black and white. Your final gallery will include a selection of carefully chosen images which look their best in black and white alongside the majority in colour. I aim to photograph your wedding naturally but will happily provide direction where needed to get the best from your portraits and family formals - and organize your guests for one of their favourite parts, the confetti run.
I believe you should look at a whole range of photographs from different weddings - both indoors and out - before deciding if a photographer is the one for you. Please feel free to browse my galleries where you'll find weddings in barns, marquees and more formal venues. These are almost all genuine couples and real weddings because I'm guessing you're real? And want to see what your real wedding photos might look like?
ABOUT ME - I love parma violet gin, real ale, old things, cows, donkeys, armadillos, pangolins... (and just about any ancient looking creature in a shell). I speak French and Spanish and play the ukulele and piano - all equally poorly but if you've any non-English speaking guests or your band's van breaks down I could step in. Or maybe not... I've had a camera since I was ten years old when the only decision I had to make was whether to buy a roll of film with 24 or 36 pictures. I began taking photography seriously about nine years ago. Number of photos in my current editing catalogue - 43,405...
I highly recommend booking your photographer and other main wedding suppliers as soon as you can but I'm sometimes available last minute or can find somebody who is so never hesitate to get in touch.
Falling into wedding photography was my happy accident and I'd love to share your day.
