Who are you and what do you do?

We are Bloomwood Photography and we are wedding photographers

Brief description of what we offer…

No two weddings are ever the same, and we don’t treat our clients the same. Our style is contemporary with a vintage feel, capturing photographs to tell the story of the day.

More detailed description of what we offer…

Based in central Essex, we photograph weddings across the region, and tailor our services to your requirements for truly beautiful memories of your special day.  With both female and male photographers, we capture shots from preparations and throughout the day, and aim to make you feel as comfortable as possible without being intrusive.

Our style is contemporary with a vintage feel, capturing natural photographs to tell the story of the day, as well as the traditional group shots with family and friends.  We spend time meeting with you and getting to know you in the build up to your wedding, and offer guidance as to the photography we offer, but ultimately tailor our services to make a bespoke package for your requirements.

Typical process with a couple…

We meet up initially to discuss your wedding photography and for you to view albums and galleries of previous weddings we have photographed.

You would then have an engagement shoot, this is a great chance to spend some time with you in a more casual environment, and get you used to being in front of the camera lens.  We then meet four weeks before the wedding day to go through the final schedule for the BIG day and in order to find out exactly what you want from us, there isn’t time to be wasted on the wedding day itself, so preparation time is well spent to ensure that we capture all the photographs you want.

What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?

The first thing we would say is that not all wedding photographers are the same… have a look around and talk to people to find out what styles you like and what you expect from your wedding photography.  A wedding is a personal experience shared with friends and family, and the photos that record all of the moments and little details are just as personal.  We get to know every couple who let us be a part of their wedding and building a relationship is an important part of getting great photographs. If you get on with your photographer and trust them it allows for a far more relaxed and enjoyable wedding day… and a happy couple makes for better photographs.

Most Proud of…

Since starting the business I’m most proud of the relationships we’ve built up with many of the couples that we’ve photographed – many of whom I would now call friends. We always feel very lucky when couples choose us to be a part of one the most personal and special days of their lives.  We spend time getting to know the bride and groom before the wedding to ensure they are relaxed on the day, and we get to see things that not even their family and closest friends do.

Many of the relationships we develop don’t end after the wedding day… we are often then asked to capture the weddings of their family and friends too.  We genuinely get to know people and that means they are comfortable around us and let us get the best shots! We often become a ‘photographer for life’ and we get asked to photograph other events such as family parties, christenings or even newborn portraits.

This makes us proud as we get to see the enjoyment people get from our work – not just on the day itself, but over time as they look back too.

Personal message…

Hi, I’m Emma.

I eat, sleep, dream photography!

I love looking at photographs that bring back great memories, and knowing that’s what I do for other people is really rewarding.

If you want to speak with me or would like to see some of my work, then please get in touch… I would love to hear about your plans 🙂
