Hello, I’m Charlotte Jopling, a professional wedding photographer based in Derby and working throughout the UK.
I don’t take traditional, stiff, awkward wedding photography. When you look at them, you want your wedding photos to bring back all the emotion, laughter and tears that really happened on the day, not memories of hours spent posing whilst the fun went on without you! I will be there for all the big moments, the mischief, mingling with your guests, documenting everything naturally in an unobtrusive manner. I want to tell the story of your wedding as it is.
I photograph in a documentary/reportage style and combine it with my background in fine art to create wedding pictures that tell a story, in the style that you see here on my website. I’ll be there from first popped cork (or cup of tea) during the morning preparations right through to the dad-dancing shenanigans. All the personal choices you made to make the day reflect who you are, I want to bring out in your photographs.
When I’m not photographing weddings I like to adventure outside as much as possible, normally with a camera! Living in Derby means I’m never too far from either end of the country and I often venture to Cornwall to get my coastal fix. I love dogs. BBC Radio 6 generally covers all my music tastes.
So back to you; what’s your wedding going to be like? Whether it’s an intimate ceremony or a large celebration, your favourite people are going to be there sharing a momentous day with you. And you’ll want to remember it forever. When the day is over, you can be happy knowing that I’ve recorded it creatively for you and you’ll get to relive it all very soon. If this sounds like the what you are looking for, let’s chat!
