Defining what ‘i’m about’, or indeed what a Photographer is even about, is not the seemingly straight forward task it might appear! It’s multifaceted and hugely effected by circumstance, emotion, personality and landscape; after all, it’s one human’s artistic interpretation of what they see through their lens. My simple mission is to create and capture beauty, using the scattered wonder which is all around us and in us. If the client is comfortable, the images are inevitably going to be authentic and true to them, so I really seek to create an atmosphere which encourages the client to be as fully themselves as possible. Each shoot naturally becomes a collaboration and exchange of artistic impression and expression, which cannot help but ignite fresh inspiration, creativity and personality, thus making my job so epic. Every shoot is a wondrous new opportunity to meet new people, explore ideas and spaces, interpret, improvise and draw out the unique character and feel of the day. It truly is a privilege to be invited and trusted to capture the most precious of memories and I hope to make the experience both as awesome and as chilled as possible.

If I had to define in a few words the style in which I work, it would be relaxed, artistic photo journalism. I studied illustration before discovering photography as a career path in 2012, and I believe it has had a big impact on the way I create images. I love documenting as honestly as possible, preferring to let events unfold naturally without dictating or manipulating situations. I will of course do my best to move unsightly distractions, and present the best composition I see, giving direction during weddings with tight time frames, and portraiture. The aim is to be sensitive and thoughtful, rather than bossy and obtrusive.

I look forward to hearing from you and meeting you!

Testimonials :

 
"We sought out Debs for our own wedding after a recommendation from a friend, and, spurred on by the knowledge that she is a quite astoundingly joyful and heartwarming person, we managed to persuade her to shoot our wedding. It was like having a professional photographer with you and at the same time a friend who gently encourages us to try out new things, push the boat out a little, and laugh lots and lots while doing it. It was a complete pleasure and seriously good fun, to have Debs there in the thick of it during our wedding, and we feel like we have come out with a friend with whom we have shared an quite an extraordinary day. A rare talent. And then there's the photography..." George & Sarah Darrah 
"Deborah is a truly talented photographer but there is no need for me to say this.  Her beautiful photographs speak for themselves.  However, what they can't tell you is what a truly lovely person Deborah is to have with you on the big day. Happy, calm, kind and always respectful of the bigger picture, she was a wonderful addition to our wedding. I am so grateful to her for capturing what really was the happiest day of my life. Looking back through her pictures brings such joy. I will always treasure them." - Tassilo & Claudia Seilern 
"We are absolutely over-the-moon with our wedding photos and are so thankful to Debs for these beautiful lasting memories of our special day. In the months running-up to the wedding Debs was organised, clear, and quick getting back to us about any queries we had (as well as being absolutely lovely!). She made a real effort to meet us in person and get to know as much as possible about our wedding and what sort of photos we were hoping for. On the day itself Debs was so relaxed - this made it very easy for us to feel comfortable in front of the camera and obtain some gorgeous natural photos without them feeling 'staged' at all. Many of our guests commented on how lovely and chilled our photographer was - something which isn't always a given at weddings! The attention to detail continued even after the day, when we received a personalised box of prints which was beautifully wrapped with a personal note. And all only a month after the wedding! We cannot thank Debs enough for capturing our day so perfectly - we would recommend her to anyone :) " - Lawrence & Bethan Sadler
"We booked Debs to be our wedding photographer after seeing the stunning photographs she took of her sister's wedding and we are SO pleased we did! Debs did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding day and was super professional throughout. We absolutely loved having her there with us to capture each moment and she made us both feel very relaxed. We will treasure our wedding photographs forever and show them off at every opportunity. Everyone comments on how beautiful they are and we cannot thank her enough for the memories of our very special day." - Ozzy & Lucy Elsayed
"It was a real treat spending time with Debs on our wedding day. She was incredibly patient, calming and smiley throughout the day, despite the bitter cold and whirlwind of activity. When taking group shots she was warm but assertive, which is the ideal combination in my eyes! We chose her partly for her ability to take artistic, soft and natural shots, which sets her apart from most wedding photographers. Debs is a joy to be with and we highly recommend her in capturing your precious memories." - Jack & Louise Champness
'From the first meeting to the last contact Debs was a delight to be in touch with, using her own natural flare and eye for photos while amazingly working with our desires and requests we were really happy with her presence at the wedding and the photos we have received.' Max & Anna Matlali
