Hello again and welcome to a brand new week! Did you see last week’s post from Annabel introducing our new series of ‘from the heart’ features? I so hope that if you’ve got something you’d like to share with our community that you send in your thoughts, opinions and ideas because we’re really looking forward to hearing from you and welcoming more of our readers to these beautiful pages. We shared our first post yesterday and have been bowled over by the response through blog and social media comments as well as private emails as well – we are delighted that the post reached and resonated with so many of you.
Anyway, I wonder what the next seven days have in store for us all. If you’re looking for your wedding photographer then I might be able to make you smile right now as I introduce you to the lovely Claudia Rose Carter, her artistic and honest storytelling style wedding photography, and share details of an exclusive discount offer that both you and your wedding budget are going to love…
Claudia Rose Carter is an artistic wedding photographer based on the very outskirts of East London. She works all over the world and has photographed weddings in the US, Egypt, France, Italy, Spain and Norway as well as capturing plenty of celebrations all over the UK. Claudia Rose has over a decade of experience and became a wedding photographer thanks to a job in a music studio in Edinburgh. She also happened to take photographs of the bride in her beautiful floral wedding dress below, which we featured on Love My Dress in November 2013. Images from which went viral across the web almost immediately afterwards.
“I left school early to work in a music studio in Edinburgh where I grew up. Through the studio I became friends with a group of the musicians who worked for the in-house wedding band. A few socials later and I was acting as a roadie for them each weekend. My boss bought me a camera and asked me to get some backstage / promotional shots that he could use in marketing material and so my love of documenting began. That was eleven years ago now and I’ve been full time as a wedding photographer for five of those!”
For every wedding and every couple, Claudia Rose Carter records the celebrations in a way that’s unique and personal. Say goodbye to formulaic shots that have been taken time and time again and say hello to genuine images that capture feelings and moments that you’ll never repeat.
“My intention is to capture the day as genuinely as possible; I don’t approach a wedding the say way twice as each couple and each day is completely different. Through my photography, we should showcase who you are as a couple, not what post I’ve perfected. For me, getting those honest and unscripted photographs is what I pride myself on and I have to make myself part of the day. I photograph your wedding from the inside out.”
Inspired by nature and spending her time away from the camera keeping fit and eating well, Claudia Rose admits that her Pinterest boards are absolutely overloaded. She’s a woman who’s very clear on who she is and what she loves and this clarity is certainly something she brings to her bold and truthful wedding photography:
“My couples are also those who trust themselves. They are people who believe that their wedding day means that they are able to spend the rest of their life with their best friend and isn’t just about the one celebration. They don’t mind too much about stressing over flower arrangements if they can create interesting table decorations with DIY plant pots or herbs and they are confident in putting their stamp on the day and simply having a good time.”
And how could you fail to have a good time with Claudia Rose Carter by your side? If integrity, passion and natural emotion are what you’d like to see in your wedding photography then this wonderful woman will present you with images you’ll look at with joy for years to come.
