I'm Sadie the lady behind the lens. I'm a luxury documentary Wedding , family portrait photographer and commercial photographer living in Suffolk but working throughout the UK.
I absolutely love what I do, working with passionate and creative people and capturing their stories. 2022 marks my 17 year in business, what a wonderful adventure it has been, capturing over 350 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 16 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 being a photographer. How documenting life events and treasured moments are such wonderful experiences and to be able to do that on a daily basis is a real privilege . Making 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.

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.
