A Thing Like That, founded by Rebecca Rees, create the most beautiful, contemporary, modern and progressive wedding photography. Rebecca photographs weddings all over the UK.
Hello, I’m Rebecca. I started my career in London working as the Picture Editor for Vogue.com. This is where my love for fashion photography grew. Several years later, I moved to Dubai to head up the picture desk for Harper’s Bazaar magazine. After many years working for magazines, in 2014 I decided it was time to leave the world of nine to five and follow my original dream of starting my own photography company.
My background in fashion photography has most definitely influenced my style, but the three words that are constantly repeated in my head when I shoot are natural, contemporary and fun. I aim to capture all the details, big and small, as well as the fleeting moments, and even scenes that you may have missed at the time, all of which will contribute towards the story of your day. It’s important to me that for much of the day I am as unobtrusive as possible, in order to capture the most natural shots, allowing you and your guests to enjoy the day and even forget that I am there. I am also very happy to spend time with you to capture beautiful and natural portrait shots that we can all be proud of.
Before your wedding we will discuss exactly what you want from your photographs and map out the day from start to finish. When your wedding day comes, you won’t have to concern yourself with making sure I’ve got that detail shot of your ‘something borrowed’ or the candid photo of your grandparents dancing, you can leave that to me.
I’m based in the South-West UK, but I can and regularly do travel. I’ve travelled everywhere from Beirut to Singapore for my job, and hope I will continue to enjoy the opportunity to shoot in new and interesting places.
I chose them as I saw a wedding that they had done, which was featured on Love My Dress. That blog post sold it to me, as the images were amazing. They specialise in candid shots, and I loved the relaxed nature of the images I’d seen

Rebecca from A Thing Like That Photography did the photography for the wedding and we can’t recommend her enough. The photography was one of the most important things for us and we knew it would capture the spirit of the day, and all the little moments that we might miss.
Harrison found Rebecca’s photos quite early on and knew straight away she would be able to do just that. She even made the effort to come and meet us for a coffee beforehand to break the ice a little, and she put us at ease immediately. We’re so happy with the photos, they’re exactly what we wanted and more and we have had so many compliments from guests at how impressed they were with how Rebecca blended into the day.

I used to work with Becky at Harpers Bazaar Arabia so already knew she was a legend. She left the magazine to go back to the UK and start her own photography business, so I’d been keeping my eye on her progress and work and loved everything she was doing. As soon as we booked a date, Becky was the first person I emailed as I not only love her work and her style of photography, I couldn’t think of a nicer person to be with us on the day. She rules so much. I love how she doesn’t do the traditional staged wedding shots, but has more of a documentary style to her work and we completely trusted her. She captured the day in the most perfect way and all our friends were obsessed with how lovely she was too. It felt like she was a part of our friends and family.

You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
