Magpie-Eye is a one woman band featuring myself as photographer, producer, planner, researcher and advisor to all you amazing brides and grooms out there with a vision for your wedding day. I specialise in alternative, destination weddings but I love shooting wherever your dream takes me and genuinely get excited hearing about your plans. With 7 years production and 20 years photography under my belt I have tons of great contacts and suggestions at the ready should you need/want them.
Why not check out my freebies and see if there’s anything helpful there to get started.
My style of photography is mostly creative, relaxed and stylish. I aim to tell a story through photographs, showing not only the all important events but the time, place, character, details and anything else that catches my eye. However, I also really appreciate the value in a strong iconic portrait, especially at weddings, and love creating stylish but relaxed shots of groups and individuals should this be something you want.
As an ex music photographer I really do pride myself on capturing those fleeting moments and providing exciting images that you will be want to share and look back on for many years to come. Check out my previous work with touring bands and musicians here.
Having honed my skills on 35mm cameras, before the digital photography revolution (lets just say it was pre-millenium!) I strongly believe this has had a huge effect on the way I work. Composition, natural light and the all important ‘decisive moment’ are ingrained in the way I shoot.
Whilst I do offer a range of packages mainly due to popular demand I passionately believe that everyone’s needs are unique so please feel free to make use of the ‘request a quote’ form, with no obligation, and let me know about your specific requests so that I can provide a more accurate quote based on your needs. I would not want anyone to think photography is beyond their means so if you let me know your budget I will always let you know what I can do for it but please do bear in mind wedding photography over-heads are huge – more on that here.
Weddings are among the most exciting, dynamic and rewarding events to photograph. I love the ‘characters’, the details, the dress, the flowers and as a photographer I even love it when things don’t go exactly to plan! Laughter at weddings is inevitable but the laughter that comes from long standing friendships and relatives is something really special.
Many thanks for reading and please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
