Some of our regular followers might have remembered one of our Real Brides Wedding features Jenny & Dave? No? Well not to worry, you’ll be able to catch another glimpse in this post from Hayley Scott Photography. She captured some wonderful images of their wedding day that I knew I wanted to feature her work someday. Wedding Day Photography is a big part of peoples wedding days, it’s the part the captures your day for all to look back over and so has to be the right choice, so we asked Hayley for a bit of her advice.

Q: Tell us a little bit about Hayley Scott Photography. Why you started and how long you’ve been going?

I have always had a passion for photography for as long as I remember. I have been doing photography since I was 16. Can’t believe that is 12 years ago. I used to work for a portrait studio company and worked there for about 4 years. Unfortunately the company ceased trading and I didn’t have the confidence for financial backing behind me to follow my dream so I ended up working in an office and trying to build up my portfolio on the side photographing family and friends. I met my fiancé in 2010 and he was so supportive in pursuing my dream and it wasn’t until I had my first son in August 2013 that I finally took the plunge to start Hayley Scott Photography and haven’t looked back since.

Q: What inspires you and your photography?

The people I photograph. Every couple is special and unique and love that they ask me to be a part of their wedding day. It is such a privilege. I love capturing those special moments from father of the bride seeing his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time to first dance as husband and wife. It’s these special moments that melt your heart and makes me happy that I am giving them memories to treasure forever.

Q: What should brides to be looking for when choosing a wedding photographer?

They choose a wedding photographer that they feel completely comfortable with. They are going to be a big part of the day and you don’t need the added stress worrying that you’re photographer is rude and bossy to you and your guests. I have seen these a few times as a guest at weddings. Your photographer should make you feel relaxed and make it fun too.

Q: What advice can you give couples when it comes to the photos for their big day?

Try not to stress as it can show in the photos. I ask my couples to give me a list of any special photos they would like me to get on the day prior to the wedding so they don’t need to worry about tying to remember which ones they have missed and trying to organise the guests.  Also try not to worry about the little things going wrong because at the end of the day your marrying the love of your life and that’s the most important thing.

Q: With so many wedding photographers to choose from what makes you stand out?

I have often been told by my couples that when they receive their photos, they are amazed how I have captured some pictures they didn’t know were being taken as I am discreet and don’t impose in those special moments. I don’t just take photographs, I capture the emotions as well. I also feel that I am not just a photographer but an extra pair of hands, if needed to help the day run smoothly from sorting out buttonholes to entertaining children.

Q: What’s your biggest achievement so far to date? (doesn’t have to be wedding related)!

I feel my biggest achievement would have be having the confidence to become my own boss. I cannot believe how far I have come in 2 years and it is thanks to my supportive family and friends believing in me that I could do it. It is also thanks to my lovely clients who some I have stayed good friends with. I can’t wait to see what the next few years has to offer.

Q: Have you made any New Year’s Resolutions & What were they? (just for fun)!

Quite a boring one but my fiancé and I made a promise to try and go on a date night at least once a month. We have 2 sons, a 2 and half year old and a 6 month old so you can imagine we don’t get a lot of time for each other. We actually get married in July this year so I get to be on the other side of the camera for a change. Very excited.
