FERN PHOTOGRAPHY – ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
We live to adventure, to learn and to grow. We cherish new experiences and meeting interesting and excellent people, like you. We travel the length and breadth of the UK photographing stories of love. Near or far we’re excited to be part of your new adventure.
HOW WE GOT TO HERE, NOW…
Fern Photography started in 2011 by Dan and Matt. We wanted to create wedding photographs that were real stories for real people.
Our first weddings were unconventional, mostly in the dark by firelight. The importance of storytelling for these couples connected with us as photographers. We felt wedding photography should be about a couple’s story and their wedding journey and not about the photographer just wanting to create portraits for their portfolio.
Back then storytelling wedding photography was just emerging. We were kind of making it up as we went along. In a way that was the perfect way to do it too. We didn’t approach weddings from any traditional template so everything was possible and nothing was considered taboo.
We are specialist wedding photographers and have been working professionally as wedding photographers for +10 years. We love big, extravagant weddings, small intimate elopements and everything in between. We offer a personalised photography service with a natural approach to your wedding day. We focus on the real moments of joy taking place at your wedding. At your wedding we don’t hide, we blend in like a friend. We dress like guests, chat with guests and act like guests. Our aim is to fit right in with your friends and family like they were our friends and family. No cheese, no stuffiness, no demands, just maximum effort and maximum fun!
How I cater to offbeat weddings
SPEAK WITH HONESTY, THINK WITH SINCERITY, AND ACT WITH INTEGRITY.
As wedding service professionals we strongly believe in operating a business that is inclusive, open and transparent. We publicly state how we do business and how we manage our customer interactions so that we can hold ourselves accountable for our actions.
TREAT COUPLES AS PEOPLE
We are a progressive and inclusive company. We believe everyone deserves the right to celebrate their relationship however they choose and with whomever they choose; we will always photograph that celebration with respect and understanding.
We don’t make our decisions to photograph or present our work based on gender, creed, culture, race, sexual orientation or physicality. We believe in the importance of focusing on both (or sometimes more than both) people in the relationship, as well as the community that attends the celebration, rather than the traditional image the industry currently promotes. We choose to celebrate difference and individuality and we promote realistic body images in the work we produce.
We want to take care of the environment and will do our best to be as green as we can. We endeavour to operate a paperless office, use low power equipment and green energy suppliers. Where possible and practical we will also travel in the greenest way we can such as car-sharing to jobs.
