Relaxed, romantic and timeless. Lover of beautiful light and genuine moments.
I always want you to feel something when you receive your collection from me. I want the day to come rushing back to you; the sights, the sounds, how you felt.
Have you ever looked back at wedding photos of your great-grandparents? Or sat and watched your parents wedding video? It's so wonderful isn't it - that little glimpse into these special occasions that happened in your family history. It's an heirloom in it's own right and yours will be just as special, not only immediately after the wedding, but in years to come too.
This is always on my mind when I'm documenting your wedding; how much of a privilege it is to capture these moments that will only increase in value over the years. For this reason I strive to create imagery with a timeless quality that will stand that test of time. The laughter, tears, stolen glances - I want to capture it all.
I love warmth and emotion in imagery and I love capturing real, genuine connection between people so that when you see your films or photos, you feel like it truly represents you. I put my whole heart into creatively documenting your most treasured memories.
ON THE DAY
I always want to be as unobtrusive as possible. I like to quietly capture your day without you even noticing where I am for as much of the day as possible. You certainly never have to worry that you're going to be bombarded with cameras all day.
One of my favourite compliments is when couples say I was 'invisible' on their wedding day. It's during these moments of being almost 'invisible' that the most genuine and heartfelt moments are documented!
With that being said, when the time is right I do really love to get creative to produce those wall-worthy images for you. Don't worry, there's no cheesy posing, I'll just prompt you to get the very best reactions and interactions.
Your couples shoot is all about the two of you taking some time out from the day to take it all in whilst I work a bit of magic around you. It's time to have some fun, make some amazing memories and just enjoy your (very) newly wedded bliss.
ABOUT MY COUPLES
- My couples are easy-going, ridiculously in love and always up for having a good time,
- My couples go with the flow of their day and trust that I'll be documenting their special moments beautifully. They don't mind running through a field or dashing outside halfway through their meal because the sun is looking amazing. They know it'll be so worth it.
- My couples value how significant this day is and they want to celebrate in style.
If you’re not afraid to let loose and be yourselves, unapologetically - then I reckon we’re a great fit!
I live in Hampshire with my wonderful husband and he's my biggest fan (apart from my Mum)! Shona Nolan Photo and Video was formed on a bit of a whim when I decided to try and make a career out of a long-standing hobby. To my surprise, and through the power of 'word of mouth' from my first couples in 2017, it quickly took off and now I'm incredibly lucky that I'm able to capture love stories full time.
I love what I do and the biggest satisfaction from this job comes from the feeling I get when I hand over your films or photos. Knowing that I’ve been a tiny part of one of the biggest days of your life, and have been able to preserve those memories for you forever, is so special to me.
