About Samantha Lowe Photography
Specialises in a natural, storytelling style of wedding photography. She is not about awkward posing or barking directions but looks to capture details, feelings, the who, the where, the why. She captures celebrations not formal portraits. She will jump right in to your family for the day, laughing with you, crying with you, being accepted as part of the furniture rather than standing out as someone who makes people feel awkward and shy. She allows the day to unfold before her, rather than setting things up, capturing you interacting naturally with your friends and family so that essentially, you enjoy your special day rather than feeling like you are doing a 12 hour photoshoot. Most couples would like some romantic, couple shots of the two of them (the ones that you want to put on a canvas for your wall) but again these are taken informally, concentrating on real feelings rather than posed grins. She will only occasionally ask you both to look directly at the camera, it should be about the connection between the two of you, and big grins straight down the lens do not tell much of a story. Family shots, group shots, however you want to brand them, still have their place at most weddings (it keeps the older generations happy) but a predetermined list of about 6-10 groups is a comfortable amount and they are taken care of logically and efficiently to ensure people don't get restless. Equally, it's your day, and if you want to do away with these completely then Samantha is totally on that boat with you!
Her website allows you to tailor make your collection to suit your style and budgets, giving you the freedom to choose how long she stays with you on the day and whether you would like to add a beautiful album to your digital files.
How she works
Her style of photography suits couples who are looking to have a relaxed, laid back wedding where the emphasis is on having fun. It suits those who dont particularly feel comfortable being photographed. It suits couples who are looking for a happy medium, a predominantly documentary style with a small sprinkling of family groups shots to keep the relatives happy. It suits couples who want to feel something real when looking back over their photographs, not just admire how they looked. It suits couples who are looking for a friendly, down to earth photographer who is polite, well mannered and professional.
