Your Wedding Photographer

Sarah Illingworth

I've been photographing weddings and events for ten years. One of the reasons I first picked up a camera was to help positively change the way people see themselves, and this still holds true today for every wedding and portrait I capture. I came to photography with a natural talent for composition and a fascination with harnessing light - fancy camera kit has always simply been the means to an end.

"It's a choice - there are two different sorts of photographer: those obsessed with the technicalities and those obsessed by the subject." Mario Testino

It is a combination of beautiful photography and my empathy and understanding that is most cited by couples as their reason for choosing Mirror Imaging Photography as their wedding photographer. My style of photography is elegant, clean and crisp. Whether you love clear light or ambient light style, the images are recognisable by their clarity and colour. Many people say they feel uplifted looking at my photographs, which is the best compliment! You can read an abundance of couples' testimonials under the 'Thanks' section of the website, as well as my approach to wedding photography in: The Mirror Imaging Difference.

My weddings have been featured multiple times on wedding blogs and in national and regional bridal magazines, including Wedding Ideas Magazine, Perfect Wedding Magazine and on the front cover of East Midlands Wedding Magazine. In their December 2014 issue, Perfect Wedding Magazine invited me to join their featured Guest List. View the Press page to see a selection of featured articles.

Authentically capturing the sincerity, emotion and connection between two people is what makes Mirror Imaging different from other photographers. This requires empathy, understanding and support, which we give all our couples in spades. It’s also our meticulous planning for each wedding that sets Mirror Imaging Photography apart. I’m a complete perfectionist and so my couples get exceptional value not just in terms of the finish on my images but also the time I invest in each of my weddings.
