Wedding photography full of love, colour and joy from Annie Lovett Photography
For Annie Lovett, photographing weddings is all about immersive, joy-filled natural storytelling.
Whether you’re planning a country house wedding, a festival wedding, a farm wedding, a woodland wedding, an adventurous highland wedding, or a destination wedding, the relaxed, creative approach is still the same – capturing you and your friends and family all having a great day.
Annie works as naturally as possible, documenting everything as it happens, from getting ready in the morning to partying the night away, from artistic portraits to candid comedy moments, to all the little details and all the fun and love in between.
With no formulas, stiff direction or cliché poses, she loves couples who buck the most ‘official’ or traditional expectations of what a wedding should be and put together days (or whole weekends!) that are filled with colour, love, and creativity.
“For me the perfect shot isn’t something that’s pristine or straight off of a bridal magazine cover. In fact, it’s anything but. It’s about freezing a moment. A couple giggling through their vows. A hand on a shoulder as a sign of support. Smiles and cheers through confetti. A kid jumping in a puddle. A big tear-filled bear hug. Belly laughing during the speeches. A grandparent owning the dance floor. Anything that’s genuine and filled with people, life and soul. Something that evokes emotion and brings back wonderful memories. That, for me, is what makes the perfect photo – and this is why photographing weddings is such a special and enjoyable thing to do.”
The only time she will provide light direction is during the group photos (which don’t have to be stiff and boring!) and during portraits of the two of you (which are more a glorified walk and chat around your venue and surroundings). The rest of the time, she is observing, shooting, chatting and mixing in with everyone – framing your wedding creatively and naturally, just as it is, as her clients confirm:
“Annie, Oh my goodness!! I honestly do not know where to start! Thank you so so so so much for the absolutely INCREDIBLE pictures! We are so completely over the moon with them and couldn’t be any happier! You were wonderful. You were calming and kind and easy-going and unobtrusive – everything we could have wished for. The photo’s are freakin’ perfect!! Thank you again, you are an absolute credit to your art!”
Annie is based in Edinburgh but travels all over Scotland, the UK, Europe and further abroad to photograph weddings. If her relaxed, creative approach appeals to you, check out her website and get in touch, she’d love to hear from you!
