Frances Carlisle Photography-1001

 

This afternoon I am excited to be getting to know London wedding photographer, Frances Carlisle. Frances is a photographer with a relaxed and fresh style, who captures timeless photographs of precious moments.

Just wait until you see her beautiful work…

 

Hi Frances, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?

 

Hey! I’m Frances, and I’m a wedding photographer. I live in London with my partner and our little boy. After our son was born, I had a complete career change. I wanted to be more creative, had fallen in love with photography – and, well, weddings are such happy, joyous, gorgeous events – why wouldn’t you want to photograph them?! I also get to spend more time with my son, so it’s a perfect situation.

I loved my previous job running a charity for Latin American women in London. As a result I love all things Spanish and Latin American and can often be found sipping good Colombian coffee and speaking in Spanish!

What do you love/dislike about your job?

 

I love working with people and it’s always been the central element of my job (past & present). Photographing a wedding, it just feels such an honour and a joy to be part of the happiest day of someone’s life. Having run a charity with very little budget, I don’t stress easily, so when emotions run high, I’m calm and collected.

Like most photographers, I prefer to be behind the camera – I love the creativity involved, and I love looking through a lens and seeing the beauty and emotion in people’s faces. I’m a giver, so when people fall in love with their photos, I’m one very happy woman!

I so love looking at a photographers selection of their favourite images. Amy’s portfolio is up there with the best I’ve seen, gorgeous moments captured and presented with such love and attention.

Photographer Amy Lewin is here today to share all about her work, her dedication to her clients and of course some amazing imagery…

 

Hi Amy, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?

 

Hello I’m Amy. My background is in Design; I studied for a design degree at Nottingham Trent University then worked for Ted Baker before training to be a textiles teacher. I balance my time between teaching at a beautiful school in Lincolnshire with my photography and I could not be happier. Outside of teaching and photography, I enjoy a good walk on the north Norfolk coast, dining out on lovely food, a good beer and baking many many cakes. One of my biggest loves is my cat Enzo, the calming and relaxing purr machine. My biggest love however, is Andrew, my husband. I enjoy a good DVD box set or action film such as Sherlock or Iron Man and Avengers. I like to loose myself in Vogue and Molly Makes as well as creating sketchbooks.

I am thrilled this afternoon to be catching up with one of my favourite wedding photographers, the brilliant Mick Shah.

London Wedding Photographer Miki Photography create some super amazing imagery and I have been delighted to share many real weddings photographed by Mick on WWW, have a look here.

If you are on the hunt for the perfect photographer I can whole heartedly recommend Mick, who is not only the type of person you would want around at your wedding, but has a real talent for capturing memories.

 

Hi Mick, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?

 

I’m a husband and father and it’s actually because of this that I got into photography. I was a full-time musician for 5 years and loved it but felt that time in my life was coming to an end and around that time my wife got pregnant and just kept nagging me to get a camera for when the baby was born but I was so insistent it was a waste of money and I could do just the same on my iphone ha! In the end she literally dragged me to the camera shop and we bought a camera. I figured I wanted a hobby that I meant I didn’t need to travel (ha again!) so started practising. Naturally all my mates were musicians and they all needed ‘promo’ shots, live band shots etc so I started practising on them and loved the whole image side. But then my son was born and I started capturing him and my wife interacting with him, and it was amazing – there was something about the connection that was sooo powerful and gave much more meaning to the image.

What do you love/dislike about your job?

 

I love meeting new couples, hearing their stories and working with them to achieve a body of images that really represents who they are but hopefully in the best possible way! I honestly look forward to every wedding and have to pinch myself sometimes that I get paid to do this.

How did you get into photography and into the wedding industry?

 

A Manger of a singer I had done some work for was getting married and so since I had never done a wedding before and he had a pro photographer booked already I asked if just for a laugh if I could tag along. It was at that wedding where it kind of all came together and I had that ‘eureka’ moment! It’s difficult to explain but there was all the ‘buzz’ of doing a live gig coupled with the emotional connection of the bride and groom and all their family similar to that connection of my wife and son. Capturing all of that just made sense creatively. When the photos came back the response I got was amazing and from that I got my first wedding ‘booking’ and then more referrals etc and the rest is history! I now shoot mainly weddings not just in London but the whole of the UK.

What do you aim to achieve for your clients?

 

I always strive to give 100% to all my clients whether it be an intimate, larger, traditional or alternative wedding and produce unique images they can be proud of and feel show off who they are as a couple, their personality and their love for one another and capture the ambience and ‘energy of the day’.
