Sussex Wedding Photographer of the year: Ebourne Images
I'm an award-winning wedding photographer in sunny Eastbourne. I feel blessed not only to have the gift of art but the sensitivity to capture life's emotions and memories.
With a first class Fine Art university degree and an Associate qualification from the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP), you can be assured your wedding memories are in safe hands. The qualification means I am among the elite 5-10 per cent of wedding photographers not only in East Sussex but in the whole country too.
The natural look is my preferred style. This means that nothing should be more important than your marriage and the incredible adventure you will be experiencing on the day of your wedding. My wedding photography captures the story of your big day and brings smiles to the faces of the happy couples.
I have been able to use my skills at many of the finest wedding venues in Eastbounre, Sussex, across the whole UK and Europe, including: The historic Stonehenge, the iconic St Paul's Cathedral, the super high-end Hoar Cross Hall, the charming Upwaltham Barns, the the ultra-stylish Ashdown Park Hotel and the luxury Ikos resorts in Greece.
Being an artist requires dedication and imagination. I have twisted myself into some weird and wonderful positions to create that perfect wedding imagery. The years of yoga has proved very handy! I have dangled out of a two-seater plane at 2,000 feet to capture a Pilot wedding. At the wonderfully bonkers venue of Fawley Hill, I had my ear licked by a curious alpaca as I lined up a shot. Anything can happen on the day :-). Either way, I will bring out the best in you and your carefully chosen surroundings.
I was told that I was born a photographer and my background in fine art and paintings will benefit you as it gives depth to my photography. I have always been imaginative, be it with a camera or a paintbrush. I started drawing from the early age and my life-long love affair with the camera started when I was only ten years old. Photography is in my blood. As a little one, my dearest toys were a film camera that belonged to my Dad and a self-built camera obscura. My playground was the photographic darkroom within my loving family house.
Natural and candid wedding images will provide the majority of your shots from your wedding day. I can compliment these with some stylish, lightly directed pictures, when requested. This allows me to create a more pleasing composition, using available light and natural poses. Each wedding image will be taken with the greatest care and attention. Most importantly, I put you at ease in any situation.
Every aspect of your wedding is as important to me as to you. I appreciate that you will have spent a lot of time and effort bringing your wedding vision to life. Hence it is pivotal that every little detail is lovingly captured and transferred into the final set of your wedding images. All delicately processed so your wedding photos will stand the test of time.
The feedback from happy bride and grooms confirms that my approach to wedding photography allows you and your guests to relax and enjoy your day: “Maria’s level of service from start to finish exceeded our expectations. We were blown away by the wedding images produced. We didn’t want posed photographs so Maria had the challenge of capturing the day ’in action’ which she did amazingly. She was unobstrusive. We couldn’t believe it when we received the photos and saw how many special moments and artistic shots she’d captured. Our album is the perfect momento! Harriet x"
I present your wedding photography in the best possible way. We live in a digital world but wedding pictures are not meant to be hidden on hard drives. Therefore, all of my wedding photography packages include a luxury, lay-flat, wedding album. The books are hand finished by skilled bookbinders in the United Kingdom. I aim to create a true piece of art to cherish forever.
I take many wedding images on your big day. I carefully curate these and provide you with about 400-500 images. I then work my magic to produce beautifully edited professional photographs. I use several editing softwares making sure each and every image is album ready and flawless. A true piece of art to cherish.
To put you at ease: I constantly study the art of wedding photography to ensure I'm modern and relevant. For each wedding I use a combination of lenses, two top of the range camera bodies with two memory cards in each. This enables me to produce range of images: intimate close ups capturing the wonderful range of emotions and wider shots depicting momentous occasions and theatrical backgrounds forever. I am also fully insured.
Do you like what you see? Please contact me to check my availability. In order for me to provide a highly dedicated and bespoke service to each of my couples I only take on a limited number of wedding bookings each year.
