Hi, I’m Camilla and I’m a Dorset Wedding Photographer!We may have already met, we may have spoken over the phone or email. You might already know a little bit about me. However, I wanted to tell you some of the things that make me so passionate about wedding photography and my wonderful couples.
Being a creative person, I have always loved photography. Creating images truly captured my heart during my travels in Indonesia and Australia. It was during this 18 month trip that I discovered that my photographs could tell a story. A story that I wanted to share with my friends and family back home.
My hobby grew into a real passion and I became more and more enthusiastic about photography until I finally signed up to study at The Arts University Bournemouth. It was there that I had my first experience with film photography. I was completely romanticised by the process of really ‘making’ an image. The journey from clicking the shutter, to development, to scanning and printing seemed magical to me.
I graduated from AUB with double distinction. From that moment on my feet haven’t touched the ground. My job means I get to photograph wonderful people on the happiest day of their lives. I visit stunning venues all over the world and meet new friends every day.
I am so lucky to do a job that I love so much.
When I’m not behind the lens I can be found jumping in puddles with my husband and son Max and daughter Ffion.
We live in Christchurch, Dorset so spend a lot of our time either on the beach or in the New Forest.
My other loves are food with friends, wine, great movies and traveling to new places (which is why I so love photographing destination weddings)!
Why shoot do I shoot on film?
“I’m in love with the way it looks”.
There is a soft beauty to film that cannot be matched by digital. It renders skin tones perfectly which is why it is oh so flattering. Film images have a dream-like quality which is perfectly suited to weddings. Film is soulful and everlasting.
I shoot on a combination of medium format and 35mm cameras. Oh, and I do shoot digital too when the light is not right for film.
