Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Lisa Lucas LRPS, and the proud owner of Lisa Lucas Photography. I specialise in luxury wedding photography, but I also photograph Tudor and Medieval reenactment, being part of a Tudor reenactment group myself.
What’s your favourite part of a wedding?
I enjoy the start of the day, everybody getting ready, they’re all so excited for the day ahead. And it’s early on that I have the privilege to explore the ceremony and receptions rooms, depending on the venue of course, before the guests arrive. I can use this time to capture all the gorgeous details.
What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?
Make sure you meet your photographer before you book them. You may have visited their website, and fallen in love with their images, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to get on. Your photographer is the one supplier who will spend the entire day with you, so you as a couple must both feel comfortable and relaxed in your photographer’s company. If you don’t get on, if you don’t completely trust them to do the job, then it’s going to show in the photographs.
What keeps you passionate?
Other than absolutely loving photography and weddings, I simply adore meeting new couples and joining them on their planning journey to their ideal wedding. A wedding may have the same basic elements, but every single one is different, and I get so excited hearing about plans and seeing them come to fruition on the day.
Do you like to keep up with trends? What’s your biggest trend to watch currently?
I’m extremely passionate about my couples taking away a gorgeous photobook of their images, so I include one in my photography package. In my opinion, there’s nothing quite like sitting down together, with a glass of fizz and looking through a book at your images – an online gallery just isn’t the same. The trend for having a photobook seems to come and go, but I will always offer one.
What’s next for your business?
I’m very excited for 2017 as I continue to build my business, invest in myself as a female entrepreneur, and work with wonderful couples on their luxurious weddings. I’m also looking for my first couple who are having a Tudor-themed wedding – with my passion for this period in history, it would be such a pleasure to photograph.
How do we book/use your services?
Drop me a message if you’d like to arrange a consultation meeting – remember to always meet your photographer – and I won’t let you book me unless we meet. I’d be delighted if you feel you’d like to book me at that first meeting, at which point we sign a written contract and a non-refundable booking fee is paid, which reserves your chosen date, and you’ve booked yourself a wedding photographer.
