WEDDING ADDICT WITH A PASSION FOR CAPTURING PEOPLE AUTHENTICALLY
How lovely you would like to find out a little more about me.
I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in the beautiful little village of Broadway, Worcestershire in the Cotswolds. We moved here two years ago to live out our best country bumpkin life and can honestly say it hasn't disappointed.
I have worked in the Wedding and Event industry for over 10 years now and am very firmly the type of person you would describe as a wedding junkie, and I have no shame in admitting that. The buzz, the emotions, the energy - I mean who wouldn't want to surround themselves with that every weekend, right?!
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Way back in 2010 (oh god I don't feel that old!) I completed a degree in photography and went on to work for a photography studio in Birmingham capturing all the wedding love. During my degree, I did what every budding photographer does and photographed - everything and anything. One thing became glaringly obvious during my art exploration, it was always about people, emotions and interactions, and here when I could very firmly summarise, I loved authentic moments.
Qualifying from university I was very happy at the photography studio for a couple of years surrounded by all the wedding joy before a little travel itch kicked in. Luckily for me, one interview led to the other and I found myself working overseas as a Wedding Coordinator for 3 blissfully, sun-kissed years before returning to the UK to work as a Wedding and Event Manager until the lure of the camera was too strong to ignore.
It was no longer enough to just plan weddings - I wanted to document them again. I found myself just wanting to explore life and love that little bit more, photographing moments in time as they happen - raw and wild - and immortalising those moments forever is just magical. Photographing weddings is where my heart lies, in fact capturing the emotion of a wedding is what really gives me goosebumps. I knew this was my passion, this is what I wanted to wake up to every day.
So I made the leap! I put the time and effort in to invest in myself, refreshed all my skills, updated all my equipment and worked with as many talented wedding photographers (including my big brother!) to build my portfolio before Charlotte Burn Photography was born. So here I am, and despite the difficulties (hello Coronavirus) I have the pleasure of doing what I love every day and once again documenting love stories.
WEDDING MANAGER + QUALIFIED PHOTOGRAPHER = PERFECT MATCH
I know what you are about to feel before you do
Having surrounded myself with the wedding world for the last 10+ years, trust me when I say, I know what is coming up next. I know when your emotions are going to kick in, when you may need a quiet moment to yourself or when you need an excited groupie. I am more than just a wedding photographer - I am a wedding BFF, an unexpected but welcomed bonus bridesmaid to help you through the best day of your life.
