Sarah picked up a camera much later in life than Jeff but her style and approach have already drawn comparisons with the great British documentary photographer, Tony Ray-Jones, and the legendary American street photographer, Garry Winogrand. Her fascination with people is reflected in her multi-layered compositions which often contain character, humour and juxtaposition. On the wedding day she likes to start the coverage with the groom and his party allowing the viewer to get an insight into an often ignored part of the day.

Sarah believes that each wedding has its own personality and a photographer’s pictures should reflect this. She never shoots to a formula and doesn’t direct or stage the photographs.

“As a photographer I am always drawn towards people; their personalities and relationships. A photograph has the ability to capture the essence of a person in a fraction of a second. When others see my pictures I want them to recognise not just the faces but also the mannerisms and characteristics of those caught in the frame. I don’t look for the obvious photographs, but try and bring something different to the coverage which often involves humour and a sense of irony.”
