Hello there, I’m Rebecca and I live in Kent with my husband Mark (an über maths geek) and our cute cat Misu (if you’re wondering, his name derived from my favourite pudding Tiramisu).
What totally makes me tick is telling a story and this starts by putting you at the heart of what I do, hearing about the dreams for your big day and how you would like my photography to be shaped around that. You could say this is my mission, to capture you, being you having the best day of your lives.
I love capturing love. It is a total treat to work with folk to create elegant, soft, natural images with a creative twist. Photos are so important, the still frames that are our connection to our past and our legacy for the future.
One of my first jobs was processing 35mm film at Lawn’s in Broadstairs so photography and I have had a long history! I am lucky enough to teach folk photography and advise on employability in higher education.
I love walking in deserted woodland and I am easily distracted by nature, birds fascinate me (not-so-closet RSPB & Woodland Trust member!) and I adore being outside, seeing, listening and just being. I did a geography degree so being good to our environment is important to me. I am a coastal bird and have a beach hut each summer to enjoy spending time the coast, ice cream in my hand and paddling in the sea. My favourite colour is turquoise and all shades of soft minty blue – I love the colour of blackbird eggs!
Music is my life blood. I always listen to spotify (click here for a list of my favourite tunes to edit to), sing and play piano and sax. Mark and I play in The Railway Swing Band, raising money for local charities and had a ball playing in a function band too! Our first dance was one of the first songs we play in the band we met in, Billy Joel’s Just the Way you are and we walked out of our ceremony to Higher & Higher by Jackie Wilson – happy tunes!
You could say I am a cardigan-wearing-craft addict, always crocheting, sewing and making which includes my handmade packaging. It is made from sustainable sourced materials and one of my albums is completely eco-friendly too!
My work has been featured on leading wedding blogs (RocknRoll Bride, Offbeat Bride, Whimsical Wonderland Wedding, English Wedding, Wantthatwedding, Under The Vintage Veil). Mollie Makes (an international craft & DIY magazine) published some of my work in their wedding special in 2012, The Times Newspaper featured an image of a couple in their wedding announcement section and locally my work has been recognised by Your Kent Wedding who used my image on their Nov/Dec 2012 and May/June 2013 cover. Kent Life has also published a beautiful wedding and some sunsets images too.
I am an obsessive Yorkshire Tea drinker so if you want to meet up and chat, just drop me a line and the tea is on me!
