Hi there...
I'm Sadie the lady behind the lens. I'm a Suffolk Wedding Photographer, family portrait photographer and commercial photographer working in and around our beautiful county and throughout the UK.
I absolutely love what I do,  working with passionate and creative people and capturing their stories. 2021 marks my 15 year in business, what a wonderful adventure it has been, capturing over 300 weddings, hundreds of family portraits and showcasing many business brands. I am also very lucky to be recommended by some of Suffolk's and Essex's most stunning  wedding venues , Houchins, Dove Barn, Easton Grange, Tudor Barn, Butley Priory, All Manor of Events and Alpheton Hall Barns.

Being a wedding and portrait photographer really is a wonderful privilege , I get to photograph couples and families celebrating with their loved ones on the most wonderful day of their lives. I am really proud to have been photographing Suffolk weddings for 15 years  and I can't imagine doing anything else. 

If current events have taught me anything, it has made me realise how much I love photographing weddings, to make the most of whats around you and to treasure those amazing times together and relish every minute. 

When I'm not photographing weddings or portraits you will most likely find me at the beach eating chips barefoot on the stones or wondering through the woods with my wonderful if not slightly bonkers family. I love running it keeps me sane !, well sane (ish) and I seriously can't live without tea. 

If people ask what I do , I simply say photographer and storyteller.  






So... Big Fish ? why the silly name ?  If like me you love movies you need to give Big Fish by Tim Burton a watch, it explores the idea of a story that grows into a tale and becomes a myth that is retold over and over blurring the lines of truth and fiction. Also I have a very long silly name and I thought Big Fish sounded better !

Q&A

What do you charge? 

How do I book ? 

Get in touch

 Do you take formal group shots? 

 Do you shoot on your own ?

 How far in advance do you get booked?

I like to keep things simple, so I have 1 Full Day Package at £1,200 that can be tailored. I also offer a Mini Wedding Package perfect for ceremony only coverage. 

Yes group and family shots are an important part of the day, but you don't want to spend a long time doing them. I will help and guide you leading up to the wedding and on the day to get the best out of these shots.

Simply get in touch and I can confirm my availability to secure your date a £250 deposit is required with the remaining balance being due 2 weeks before your big day.

I am often booked 18- 12 months prior to a wedding date, 2021 is now fully booked and 2022 is filled up fast, so get in touch. I'd love to hear from you. 

I mainly shoot on my own, I have been working this way for 15 years and it means that I can capture lots of candid images because people aren't so aware of a lens on them.

We all need a little inspiration, guidance and motivation at times. Whether your starting out in the industry or you've been around the block a few times. My 121 mentoring sessions are a brilliant way to get to grips with your business and workflow. 

Before the sessions I'll send you a questionnaire to find out the parts of your business and photographic areas that you'd like to develop and build on. I will then tailor your session to develop and build your skills and understanding within those areas. . After the sessions you'll receive a recording of the call along with any examples of editing or workflow.

Is a fun, practical after school photography club aimed at Primary school aged children .

A unique practical workshop aimed at high school children and their parent who would like to develop their creative and practical understanding of photography.

Snap School is an after school photography club, aimed at Primary School Children aged 8 and over. Each week we focus on a different aspect of photography and explore it through fun practical learning.

It's totally practical, we'll be using cameras or tablets throughout each session. I will also bring in other equipment to, from studio lighting, prisms, reflectors & more.

Photography is a great skill for life and it has many educational and wellbeing benefits. Self esteem and confidence are boosted by learning a new skill and it develops questioning, problem solving and in turn develops understanding.

Each week you'll collect a badge and at the end of the 6 weeks there is a certificate to show you're a totally awesome photographer.

How often do you get to learn together ? This unique totally practical location based workshop gives you the opportunity to develop a new skill and interest that you and your child can continue to explore and build on.  It's aimed at children aged 12+ and their parent/guardian who want to start to get more out of their camera kit.




To get the most out of the workshop both parent and child will need a camera of sorts , ideally one of you would have a DSLR and the other a compact , even a mobile phone as a second camera would be fine.


The workshops take place at various Suffolk locations from coastal destinations , like Shingle Street, Bawdsey and Old Felixstowe, to urban spaces such as Ipswich Waterfront and wider countryside landscapes. 

The 3 hour workshop explores camera settings, shooting modes, design and composing and exposure. By the end of the workshop you'll have a real insight into what you and your camera can create. 

My workshops are always fun and informative, after the workshop you'll receive a PDF download of the workshop content and you'll be invited to join a private facebook group , if you'd like to continue to share your work and progress.
