WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER KENT

I love love! And I LOVE a wedding – I love everything about them – the planning, the excitement, the nerves.
All of it.
And I love to photograph weddings as they happen – I want you to enjoy every moment of your wedding day, not stand for hours posing (who wants to do that?), so I keep it simple and let the day unfold in front of my lens. From the getting ready to beyond the first dance, I want to ensure you have all the moments to look back on for years to come.
It is true that your wedding photographer should be one of the most important decisions you make about your day, after all everything else is eaten, packed away or used on the day.
You wedding photographs are the thing you keep forever. Invest in your memories.
Investing in your memories will mean that your wedding photographs will transport you back to your wedding day every time you look through them – moments you wished went on for eternity, moments you never knew happened, a smile, a look, a tear, all there for you to look at again and again and again.
I want to tell your story. Naturally, heartfelt, elegantly, timelessly.
I get to you a couple of hours before the ceremony. I love all the preparations – getting to know you all and capturing the giggles, the corks popping, the make up, the hair – the whole essence of the morning.
If you have arranged a second photographer too they will photograph your intended whilst I photograph you. Your partner won’t be able to see any of this, so it is great for them to have a small window in to what was your world on the morning of your wedding day when they see all your wedding morning photographs
I will be there ahead of you – I want to capture the guests, the anticipation, the clock checking and nervous coughing whilst your entrance is eagerly anticipated…….
When you arrive, I will ensure the nervous glances and the tears of joy are photographed so you can look back on them forever. From the moment you walk down the aisle through to your first kiss I will photograph all of it beautifully.
JUST THE TWO OF US
Well, three of us normally….one thing I have learnt from the many weddings I have photographed is that people are not normally a fan of styled photos. But I have also learnt that couples barely get to spend 5 minutes together on their wedding day.
So whilst your guests mingle and enjoy a drink we will sneak off to take some timeless images of just the two of you. Couples love this time as it is a welcome moment of calm when you can stop, breathe, and even sneak a kiss or two.
“I was fortunate to be let down by my previous wedding photographer just shy of 8 weeks before my wedding, this led me to be in touch with the lovely Estelle. From the day she contacted me, the lead-up, the day, and after she was amazing. Professional and hilarious, there was never a dull moment. My pictures have come back better than I could’ve imagined. She’s truly talented in all photography. My wedding day was just perfect and she captured every aspect of it. I’ll forever treasure these photographs along with all my family and friends. I cannot speak more highly of this wonderful, patient, talented woman. 5* in everything. Thank you so much, Estelle. Forever Thankful, Forever Grateful”

Why not add a second photographer to capture the groom party as they get ready too?

““If you want a photographer who can not only take the most amazing photos but also make you laugh and feel at ease then this is the lady for you! Estelle took my wedding photos and put me at ease from the minute she arrived for the prep photos and not only that but kept me on track all through a very overwhelming day. My husband and I are thrilled with the photos, they really show our personalities and S.O.H and we couldn’t be happier with them. I can’t recommend her enough. 10/10. Thank you, Estelle, you’re an absolute star””
