Hi, I'm SJ!

A documentary wedding photographer based on the Isle of Wight but travels across the UK and beyond to capture authentic, timeless images for couples that want a relaxed vibe.

Whether you are having a London Wedding at Claridge's, a Chateaux Wedding in France or an alternative diy celebration in your home town, my approach is always the same.

To tell your love story!

I aim to capture your day exactly as it unfolds without the photography holding it hostage.
No awkward poses or hours away from your guests. It is the small intimate details and moments that make up the big memories and I document them all.

I capture the laughs and tears, the hugs with Nan's or shots with Gran's, fingers touching and holding hands.
Morning swims, dinosaur masks and dancing in the rain. Dresses hung up, donut trucks and rings exchanged.
I capture stolen glances, beaming smiles and a tender touch.

Wedding photography is not just about taking a picture, anyone with a mobile phone can do that.
It is about truly capturing human connections, emotions and creating something you can feel. Images that transport you back to a moment and make your senses spring to life.

I have been lucky enough to photograph hundreds of weddings over the past 9 years and the majority of which right here on the Island I call home.

I grew up exploring the beaches, downs and woodlands and to see it become a Wedding destination in itself is a true joy.

I get to share all of my knowledge of the area and natural beauty with our couples and have been privileged to photograph almost every venue the Island has to offer.

So if you are booking your wedding on our beautiful Island not only do you get a ready made destination wedding photographer but a few extras too.

A calming voice when the nerves kick in, an extra pair of eyes on the running toddlers, a tour guide, an organiser, timekeeper and mover of people or furniture.
I've been known to lace up a corset dress in a moment of crisis and soothe a baby in a moment of need.

Most importantly you get a champion that is invested in you as a couple, your day and your story; and in many cases a new friend!

I cannot express enough how happy we were with Steve's photography and professionalism. From the moment we met Steve we knew he was going to be good! He listened to everything we wanted on the day and was so helpful adding suggestions which we hadn't thought of. Sorting out details for the big day was so stressless, Steve was very reassuring and nothing was too much trouble, we could contact him with any concerns and he calmed any storms brewing! On the day Steve took the most amazing pictures, he was everywhere but in a way that was totally unobtrusive, he blended in beautifully. There were so many lovely pictures we were honestly blown away, with the right balance of group pictures and totally natural ones which truly captured our special day.
