Elegant and Understated UK Wedding (15)

Alex and I have known each other for 14 years but we didn’t get together until university. We have a shared love of house renovation so Alex rather fittingly proposed on the last night we had in the first home we had renovated to actually live in together.

Meet a Wedding Photographer in Ilkley, England: Jenny Maden Photography (5)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Jenny Maden of Jenny Maden Photography, based in Ilkley, England! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

A friendly face who works to achieve very natural and relaxed photography, which ultimately ‘tells the story’ of your wedding day (including the moments that you may actually have missed yourselves).

My approach is very relaxed. At times I slink in to the background to document what is going on around me….and at other times (typically during the couples portraits) I work directly with my couples to achieve beautiful but genuine images of them together, as a married couple. I really take time to get to know my couples as its really key that they feel at ease with me and in front of the lens. I work to capture expressions and moments that are real and authentic – this is really key. As we chat and joke, I am constantly watching the light, the image composition and the angle in which I’m shooting, to ensure that the final images are polished and flattering – as well as natural.
