My story as a female wedding photographer in St Austell
Getting to know your wedding photographer is an important part of planning your wedding, so this is a little bit about me.
Before I purchased my first DSLR in 2007, photography had always been a hobby of mine.
As a child I was given a Halina 35mm film camera and I used to take it everywhere; I was always ready to capture something interesting.
Being surrounded by beautiful Cornish scenery, I felt inspired to expand my knowledge with an emphasis on capturing seascapes and landscapes.
This is still one of my favourite pastimes (when I have the time!)
How I got into weddings
I created Tracey Warbey Photography in 2014 when a work colleague asked me to photograph her wedding at Knightor Winery.
The following year I gave up my job to concentrate on building my business and I am now fortunate enough to be able to do this all year round.
Over the last few years I have been selected as a finalist in the South West Wedding Awards, which is always such an honour.
I’m very fortunate to say that I really do love my job. Living in Cornwall means that I am able to shoot in a variety of locations.
From woodland ceremonies to farm weddings, intimate cliff top weddings to beach weddings, Cornwall has so much to offer!
I would describe my style as being documentary, therefore relaxed and generally using natural light.
My aim is to capture special moments between people.
Building a connection with the people that I meet, enables me to capture them at their very best – relaxed, happy and enjoying the moment.
Building this trust, I believe, allows me to deliver beautiful images.
I offer a service which can be tailored to suit each couple depending on the number of hours coverage required.
From intimate elopements to smaller ceremonies or even larger scale weddings, I would love to talk to you about your day.
From the bridal preparations, through to the first dance and beyond. I can be there to capture it all.
The family and friend group shots…
So what do I like to do when I’m not shooting a wedding?
I would say spending time with my husband and my children has to be number one. I have two girls, so they keep me on my toes!
I’m also a lover of a good box set (Stranger Things, Breaking Bad – in recent years) or a good film.
I’m a fan of all kinds of genres, including comedy and sci-fi.
I love music and keeping fit by getting outdoors but I also love to go out and eat… I mean, who doesn’t?!
So that’s a little about me, if you would like to tell me a little bit about you and your wedding day plans, please do drop me a line or call.
As a St Austell wedding photographer I would love to hear your plans for your wedding in either Devon or Cornwall.
