HAMPSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY THAT’S A LITTLE DIFFERENT TO THE REST
Well hello there from across the tinterwebs! I’m Lauren Hughes (LaHu!) and I’m a fine art Hampshire wedding photographer with a contemporary edge and a relaxed approach! You’ll find no stuffy cliche’s here.
I’m about keeping things natural, low-key and informal. This is so I can capture all those little moments of candour with my distinctive style and a touch of sexy light. Raw emotions, real moments, epic backdrops and Grade A exquisite light are what inspire me! Come Meet Lauren
“I could not recommend Lauren more if I tried! She was was amazing! Put everyone at ease, was so professional but so friendly! I felt totally relaxed with her. She took a lot of stress out of the day, we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and the photos are awesome! Lauren is a lovely, lovely person and is extremely talented! Thank you so so much for being a part of our day, we were extremely lucky to have you there!”
– Naomi and Chris, Silchester House Wedding
“On our first meeting we hit it off instantly and felt like we’d been friends for years. She puts you completely at ease and for someone who doesn’t like being in front of a camera this helps massively. x“
– Rebecca and Rob, Elvetham Hotel Wedding
I’m there 100% for you! Do you want to dance in the rain lit by a string of lights or elope to a distant land? Maybe you’d like to snuggle under a blanket toasting marshmallows, with your beau, or pitch a tent and throw a massive festival party for your guests. Whatever your vibe…I’m all in!
I’m there to capture every beautiful moment of your wedding day and all the fun, crazy, emotional, weird and wonderful bits that go along with it. Wedding Photography is all about storytelling. It’s the moments in between ‘The Moments’, the real feels and preserving those memories in timeless contemporary imagery to last lifetimes.
Finding the drama in each moment truly inspires me. I never underestimate the honour given to us photographers. To be invited, to share in such an intimate event with you and those closest to you, is a pretty special thing!
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN HAMPSHIRE
I know just how fortunate I am. To be creating fine art wedding photography in Hampshire is a real special thing! It’s such a beautiful part of the world, surrounded by many other gorgeous counties.
I cover; The New Forest, Southampton, Winchester, Portsmouth, Alton, Basingstoke, Gosport, Waterlooville, Farnborough, Fareham, Portchester, Eastleigh, Andover, Havant, Fleet, Hook, Petersfield and Hartley Wintney.
Hampshire is one of the most appealing counties in the UK. It hosts some of the beautiful wedding venues; The Four Seasons in Dogmersfield and The Elvetham, between Hartley Wintney and Fleet. Clock Barn is one of my personal favourites near Whitchurch.
I’m Welsh made but now Hampshire based! I study Archaeology (yup, this makes NO SENSE but was great fun!) at Uni in Bournemouth but moved to Hampshire about ten years ago and never left! It’s really become my home. I run consultations in person with my couples either at my home office, in a cosy corner of a lovely pub or in the comfort of their own homes.
I wouldn’t know how to sell you something if my life depended on it. I’ll just turn up and be me, you just turn up and be you and we’ll see what happens.
During your consultation we’ll meet me, in person, because there’s no better way to see if we’re a good match. It does quite often feel like a blind date!! ha ha! I also have the opportunity to know more about you as a couple and about your plans for the wedding day. And you’re certainly welcome to pick my brain for hints and tips. It’s a black hole of interesting tid-bits and priceless knowledge form years of capturing weddings.
Some of my couples are busy so they find it difficult to meet. On these rare occasions we Skype or FaceTime to have a relaxed chat about your wedding photography. And I say rare because I encourage my couples to find some time for coming to meet with me. I actually suggest you meet with a couple of your favourite photographers, in person. This is because you just don’t know who you’re going to find a great rapport with, until you’re in the same room. And it’s vital that you have a great relationship with your wedding photographer as you’ll spend most of the big day with them so trust is vital.
Having been in the industry for many years, I’ve worked with some absolutely fantastic human being and fabulously creative suppliers. There are a select few that I trust and adore. Therefore, if you’re looking for; an amazing florist, a creative dressmaker, a beautiful bridal boutique, the perfect wedding venue, invitations and ‘Save the Date’ cards to wow your guests etc. then give me a holler!
I can put you in touch with amazing wedding suppliers. I love these guys because we have so much in common; we’ve got a style that stand out from the rest, we offer a super personal customer service experience and we will always go the extra mile for you.
