Information For Symply Photography

Let me share a secret no one else will tell you. When thinking about your wedding photos remember they aren't really for you.

Sure you’ll enjoy them, hang them on your walls, and relive your wedding day while sipping on champagne and eating the rest of your wedding cake on your first anniversary.

But there’s more to it than that.

Your wedding photos are for your children to discover one day. For your grandchildren to learn how your story (and theirs) began. They’re part of the legacy that will forever live in your family.

I hope to create that legacy for you and make you look amazing too!

Top Wedding Tips

Don’t rely on a guest to be your only photographer. They won’t fully enjoy the day and may not produce the results you were quite after. It's not something you can go back to and retake.

Make sure you and your photographer click! You'll see the photographer more than your groom, so chemistry is vital. If you can't meet in person, Skype.

It is your wedding day - be kind - but don't try to please everyone - unfortunately it’s impossible!

Better than we could have even dreamt off!
Highly recommended! Sharon provided a professional and supportive service from the moment we booked her, through to receiving our photos.

We loved our engagement photo shoot, and Sharon used this time to get to know us a couple and made us feel at ease in preparation for the wedding pictures. Sharon invited us to a pre wedding meeting to ensure we got the exact photos we wanted. She talked us through the day and offered great tips!
On the day, Sharon was perfect! She captured every photo we wanted - and lots more too! She was organised and professional, she knew how to get the perfect picture. She was very unobtrusive and made sure we could just enjoy our day! Fabulous!
The outcome of the photos was AMAZING! Better than we could have even dreamt off! We can't stop looking through the images and reliving the special moments! Her photos of the church and aisle shots have been a huge talking point amongst family and friends! Beautiful and high quality!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! A huge thank you

Review from Celebrant
I was first a Celebrant for a wedding with Sharon of Symply Photography in 2015. As an officiant it is very important that the photographer is sensitive to what is happening in the wedding ceremony whilst collecting the best photographs for their client. Right from the very beginning it was obvious that Sharon was fully aware of what was important to her clients and what she wanted to achieve for them. However she was also keen to know if there were any ways in which she could ensure that the ceremony went smoothly. I was able to trust her completely. And the photographs were brilliant - totally capturing the mood of the day. Highly recommended all round.

Fantastic photos and truly incredible end results!
We had given Sharon at Symply Photography the momentous task of capturing our wedding day and she did so in fantastic style. Can’t thank Sharon enough for all her hard work not only on the day but the planning and printing of our wedding album as well. Fantastic photos and truly incredible end results! We would highly recommend Symply Photography to anyone for any occasion. Thank you so much for all you have done Sharon.

Brilliant! Could not recommend more strongly!
Brilliant! Could not recommend more strongly! Sharon was fantastic and the photos she has taken captured our wedding day perfectly. She blended into the background so many times and managed to take so many candid photos that we didn't even know were being taken - often these were our favourites because they are so genuine and honest. We had some posed family photos and Sharon was great at negotiating family members and ensuring everyone was where they should be. She was never far away and gave some very appreciated hints and tips that made the day run smoothly. She acted as a pillar of support for us throughout the wedding and produced such a beautiful wedding album that we are so proud of. We could not have asked for a better photographer; Sharon is amazing at what she does and her photos are proof of that. The time and effort that she invested in us after the wedding was amazing; she got to know us so well and we will definitely be using her for other occasions in the future.

Sharon made me feel so at ease and comfortable on the day
I Can't recommend Symply Photography enough. Sharon is just fantastic. We had our wedding May this year and we have just been to pick up our Stunning Photo Album. Sharon made me feel so at ease and comfortable on the day with taking photos and even just being a happy friendly face. You can see the passion that Sharon has for her job through her way of her warming words Aswell as her fantastic skill at capturing all the great memories of our special day and may others. Highly recommended

Viewpoint from a mature couple
Being a more mature couple than most bride and grooms, we wanted a photographer who was professional, experienced and would be at the wedding almost un-noticed.

Sharon was all of these things, and more. She captured the mood of the day in an amazing way and her bubbly personality was well received by all of our guests. The photographs all had both a natural and excellent quality and Sharon dealt with any queries, before, during and after the wedding without any fuss.

We would recommend Sharon without any hesitation

Sharon was everything we could have wished for - and more
We were quite daunted by the thought of choosing a wedding photographer as our wedding photos were important to us, knowing they were what we would have to look back on. However I can honestly say Sharon was everything we could have wished for and more. On the day she was very professional and organised and ensured she captured our requested shots. Sharon also made us feel at ease at pre and post wedding meetings and was very accommodating and flexible with the offered wedding packages. Her experience in the industry was immediately clear. We are still trying to choose photos for our album as there were some really lovely shots so have yet to see Sharon's creation but we have every confidence that Sharon will create an album to exceed our expectations. We would highly recommend her photography services.

She was the only photographer not wanting payment upfront,
From the moment we met Sharon we knew she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. She made us feel quickly at ease like we were just sat having a chat with friends. Sharon showcased a beautiful range of her artistic work to us to allow us to focus on what we wanted for our own wedding and gave us lots of ideas that we had also never thought of.

Sharon arrived in good time on the wedding day and made no hesitation in getting to work; even taking pictures from her car! Sharon worked discreetly around the ceremony and meal taking many memorable pictures that we ourselves didn’t realise had happened. She organised us very quickly and professionally for the formal photos and took us to lots of discreet and hidden places of the uphill Lincoln area we did not know existed.

Sharon worked very quickly to professionally edit our photos to a high quality and standard. When we went to visit her again to see them, we both ended up crying (with tears of happiness of course!) because of the quality of the moments that had been captured. We managed to work out our photos for our album and Sharon again, using her professional insight and intellect, constructed us a beautiful album where we can cherish the memories of our special day forever.

Sharon comes with our fullest recommendation – professional, personal and dedicated to completing a fantastic job. She was the only photographer not wanting payment upfront, that to us, made us realise straight away her personal integrity and pride in her own work being nothing short than outstanding. It was a pleasure having Sharon there to capture all the special moments of our day.

Sharon was the only person I would trust to do the job.
When it came to choosing a photographer for my daughter's wedding, Sharon was the only person I would trust to do the job.
Sharon put my daughter and her husband completely at ease when they met her the one and only time before the wedding (they live in the US but had heir wedding in the UK). Sharon understood completely what my daughter wanted and she came up with very creative ideas on the day. I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for - the photographs are stunning and it's been so hard to limit the number for the albums! Thank you Sharon, we have so many photographs to look back on a wonderful day!

one of the nicest people you could possibly wish for on your wedding day
After a little while of searching for a photographer, we were worried we weren't going to find anyone who would get 'us', we spoke to many other photographers who insisted in holding engagement shoots in very false surroundings like 'in the woods' or 'at the beach', but my Husband and I are more often then not, found under the bonnet of the Land Rover when it breaks!

So when we found Sharon, we were over the moon! Sharon totally understood and got our vibe! We were made to feel 100% comfortable about our shoot and booked a package that suited our budget which was all very well explained and very open so there were no surprises.

Communication was top notch and Sharon arrived in good time ( you do not need to pester or chase Sharon up on anything!) and she was there to keep me calm before I trotted off down the aisle - on the day - I must Say it was like a million degrees C and Sharon made our photos look effortless! All of our wish list photos were taken, and Sharon's very good at taking organic natural shots which shows in our album as our guests, and us, hadn't realized the camera was still rolling!
Our group shots were great and well organised and all of our guests commented on Sharon's professionalism and how nice she was through out the day!
The Photos were turned around in super quick time too!

We have this evening had the great pleasure in choosing our album which has been full of laughs!
We also booked a 'rock the frock' and to anyone thinking about it? Just do it, especially if you have horses - my shoot will remain in my heart forever - I had a very tender moment with my best friend which was beautifully captured forever in my wedding album.

Sharon is fun, caring, professional and is one of the nicest people you could possibly wish for on your wedding day - you will not be disappointed.

Hi I’m Sharon – I have the best job in the world. I feel privileged being part of the wedding celebrations and I love watching the emotional reactions afterwards when couples view their photos for the first time. Ive been a photographer for a long time (before digital cameras even!)- so have a wealth of experience. Nothing fazes me. My kids have grown up now so to fill the gap I have two crazy golden retrievers and two very aloof cats. Oh and a much adored little two year old grandson who calls me Nanny Fizz due to my hapit of opening Prosecco whenever its appropriate (and sometimes when it isnt!) Apart from taking photos I'm at my happiest in the mountains or near the sea - which is a bit rubbish as i live in the middle of rural Lincolnshire which has neither! I would love to hear from you! If you think we’d be a good fit then say hello… and talk weddings with a glass of fizz!
