Wedding Photography Portfolio

Are you adventurous, outdoorsy, different? Are you looking for a wedding photographer to match your personality? I’m Sarah and I’m a wedding photographer with a passion for all things outdoors. It could be micro-adventures through to epic winter days out in the mountains. Small dog walks in the local woods to miles of single-track mountain biking. This passion for being different, for breaking the mould translates directly into the images I love to capture to ensure you have photographs from your big day that really screams your personality.

I was born and raised in the Peak District, I love the great outdoors and I love shooting weddings in our stunning countryside. We have some of the most beautiful venues in The Peak District and the surrounding counties, with beautiful hill and moorland backdrops. Just imagine taking your wedding dress up to the crags of a gritstone edge where very few brides have ventured and having a photo to encapsulate that! See below for my portfolio of just these kind of photos.

I cover many locations – Derbyshire, Cheshire and South Yorkshire including Buxton, Hathersage, Chesterfield, Sheffield, Leek, Congleton, Edale, Castleton, Bakewell, Ashbourne, Hartington, Hayfield and many more.

Creative Wedding Photography in and around The Peak District

You’re probably sat in work or on the sofa, scrolling endlessly through wedding vendors, when you’d much rather be out having an epic adventure? If that sounds like you, keep reading!

It might seem like finding a photographer is another chore. However, your photos will be one of the few things that you have long after the wedding day. They will allow you to re-live the special moments of a day that inevitably will quickly pass by. Not all photographers will be suited to you, each have their own style. Choosing the right one to suit you and your personality should be a big consideration. Don’t just select the one with the lowest price or because a friend had them a few years ago. Choose someone you want and trust to make your special day into perfect photos. Factor this in when booking to ensure your images are captured as you want to remember them.

What To Look For?

Not all wedding photographer’s are the same, in fact most will have their own unique style built over many years of experience. Don’t just look at the price, look at the photos and also the photographer. Inspect what you will be paying for and that it matches how you wish to remember your day. Does the photographer’s personality align with yours? There are countless styles of photography such as candid, traditional, documentary, adventurous and many more. Think how you want to want to remember your big day. Next, think about how the photos look, not just in the style of shooting but also how they are processed. Whilst unedited photos suit some people, others prefer a particular style of final editing. Editing and processing is a large portion of a wedding photographer’s work and ultimately represents an equal portion of the end result. Please take a look through my wedding photography portfolio on Instagram or Facebook for examples of my work which I have captured from over 8 years of experience.

My Wedding Photography Style

My style of wedding photography is discreet. I like to do my job without being noticed or disturbing the flow of the day. This doesn’t mean i’m tucked away in a corner, I will always be around taking photos but being discrete allows me to capture natural and beautiful shots of people enjoying your special day. I take lots of candid shots to document the day as it is, though I do like the take the couple aside for a short portion of the day to capture the ‘hero shots’ of just the two of you. I love shooting beautiful, outdoorsy locations whatever the weather. My photography incorporates a mixture of natural light and flash to achieve my desired effect.

Prices & Packages

I have two wedding photography packages which can be seen on my Wedding Photography Prices page. My most popular package covers the preparations, the service, group and couple shots right through to the cutting of the cake and the first dance.

Nervous and Camera Shy?

Don’t worry! With all my wedding packages, I offer a free engagement shoot prior to your big day. This allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera, get to know me and also ask any questions you may have about your big day.

We were lucky enough to find Sarah when searching for a photographer for our wedding last October, I came across her website and straight away could see how talented Sarah is.

Sarah went above and beyond on our wedding day, even saving the day when my sister (who was also bridesmaid) lost a contact lens in her eye!
On top of all of this she produced a set of amazing images which captured our day perfectly, my husband and I are not massively keen on being in front of the camera but Sarah was able to make us feel comfortable for posed images and also captured some incredible candid shots of ourselves and our guests which we will treasure forever.

Sarah is a genuinely lovely and extremely talented lady, I have already recommended her to a friend who is getting married soon and will continue to do so!

Samantha Summers

Sarah is a truly amazing photographer. She has an eye for detail and captures moments that others miss. What we received following our wedding was not just a catalogue of wonderful photographs, but a pictorial story of the day. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for that little bit extra from their wedding photographer. She’s also really lovely and relaxed and puts even those guests who hate having their photos taken at ease. Highly recommended.

Jannine Lomas

We recently had our wedding and Sarah was our photographer. I cannot say in words how fantastic our photos are. Sarah has a great artistic style and her attention to detail is second to none. Her commitment to get the perfect shot is amazing.(balancing on a lock gate!) I would highly recommend her, I only wish we could do it all again. She is so friendly and it was great to meet her on our engagement shoot and get to know her, so she wasn’t a complete stranger on the day. Thank you again Sarah.

Sarah was fantastic from the start for our Wedding reception. It was just a small, evening reception as we got married abroad and Sarah tailored packages and prices to suit. She was so tentative on the day, ensuring we got all the shots that we wanted and also stayed longer than planned to wait for late family members! The turnaround was incredible.. As she was going on holiday she managed to process and edit them all and post on Monday (reception was on the Saturday 2 days before) and received a beautiful little parcel on Tues with an adorable USB in a little vial. Couldn’t be happier with the quality of the photos both posed and candid. Absolutely stunning- especially ones of our nieces and nephew having the best time on the dance floor! Thank you so much Sarah for the truly stunning photos. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Daniel Wheelton,

Sarah is such a lovely woman who saved our wedding after another company let us down. We had engagement photos where she got to know what type of couple my and my now husband are and became our friend. On our wedding day she was amazing and took some extra photos and she was not pushy in any way. We had a VW camper that we had photos out in that look stunning. The best thing is we wanted a very natural wedding and photos to match and that is what she did. I would recommend her to anyone I know that needs photos doing for any occasion.

Emma Spencer,

We have just received our photos from our recent wedding and we are absolutely blown away. They are fantastic!
Sarah was brilliant from the start and we felt so relaxed!
You have such a great talent – thank you so much!!! X

Rachel Bennison,

We couldn’t be more pleased than we are with our wedding photos.
They are absolutely stunning and show that Sarah is a true professional.
She spent most of our day with us, from the getting ready to the first dance and was a quiet, calm, patient presence all day.
She managed to capture so many brilliant moments with a mixture of formal and informal pictures that all look amazing.
We are absolutely delighted and couldn’t recommend her more highly.
Thank you so much Sarah for helping us to have so many perfect reminders of our wonderful wedding day.
Many many thanks
Debbie and J xx

Debbie Michaelis,

Such an amazing lady feels like we’ve made a friend for life xx

Kirsty Bradbury,

We got married in August this year and happened to find Sarah by chance online. She was extremely helpful, professional and approachable and talked us through everything. We had our engagement photo shoot and we were amazed at how they turned out, she managed to capture the light in such a magical way. On the big day she was very discreet but extremely helpful in keeping me calm and directing guests for group shots. We loved her approach as we were not keen on too many posed shots, she got some amazing pictures of guests enjoying themselves. We could not recommend her more for your big day, you will be in very safe hands!

Sophie Taylor,

Sarah was highly recommended to us by a friend to photograph our wedding back in September 2016. From the moment I contacted her all the way through we had an excellent experience with Sarah. Our engagement shoot was wonderful, we were both a bit rubbish at having our picture taken but Sarah asked us what look we wanted to go for and it was wonderful! We had a good giggle and the photos were AMAZING! The service we received up to, on and after the wedding day was great and we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you Sarah for beautifully capturing our big day xxx

Rebecca Wolstenholme

Sarah was our wedding photographer and was nothing short of fantastic. From the first contact we had with her she was professional and friendly. Sarah is really easy to get on with and it felt like we had another friend at the wedding, who was also a talented photographer! Nothing was too much trouble and Sarah stayed as long as we needed her to. Our guests commented on how hard she worked and we agree, she never stopped! She has some great ideas for shots and listened to what we wanted, as well as scoping out some potential locations for shots before the wedding, really putting lots of effort in to making sure everything went smoothly on the day. Our engagement shoot was cold and windy, but she never complained and carried on in her calm way. We have some stunning photos to remember our day by and would use her again for any future photoshoots. I also have to add she turned around the photos so quickly and they arrived on the cutest USB, it’s the little things that make it all extra special
