Hello I’m Elle.
My first love was photography. It started when I discovered my Dad’s neglected 1960’s nikkormat and took and after school class. By the age of eleven that camera and I were inseparable. I was twelve when I developed my first roll of film.
Freezing moments in time is an art I have been crafting all my life.
After studying fine art and illustration I spent my 20’s working in fashion, but my first love was always close by.
In 2010 I quit my job and started Yellow Bird Photography.
My style is informed by my background in the arts and a lifelong love of fashion and film. I combine portraiture with striking cinematic composition and a more casual story telling style.
On the whole I stand back and document the day as it unfolds. I tune in to the things I love. Light, colour, pattern, nature will all have a role. The rest is you. No two weddings are the same and it is you who makes them unique. Who you are together.
I will help you to feel open and relaxed, in turn your photos will be authentic and heartfelt.
My services start at £1200 for 6 hours (half day suitable for intimate weddings and elopements) or £1800 for 10 hours ( full day).
Lets talk if beautiful photography is important to you but you don't want it taking over the day.
If you’re looking for images that capture all the feelings without being cheesy
If you want pictures that represents the spirit of the time without looking quickly dated.
And most importantly if you want photos with soul that make you feel something every time you look at them for years to come...
More on me. I enjoy digging around in flea markets and second hand shops in seaside towns. Barcelona, live music, camp fires, good food and good humour. Before I had children I travelled at every opportunity and I lived in Japan for two years.
Travelling the world, being exposed to different cultures, customs and landscapes opened my eyes and fuelled my creativity. But family, friends and our shared experiences are what makes my world go round and these days. Now, I’m just as happy exploring the countryside with my family in our bell tent.
