How far do you travel?
I'm based on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border and mostly work all across the South but I'm happy to go anywhere your wedding will take me. I love an adventure and I've shot weddings in Italy, France, Denmark and New York City baby!
What's the booking process?
If you fill in my contact form you'll be pinged a brochure with my pricing right away, and I'll get back to you asap with my availability for your date. Once you're ready to book there's an online booking form and a £500 booking fee secures your date in my diary. BOOM! Make a big tick off that wedmin list babes!
But help! I'm super awks in front of the camera!
Don't worry, 99% of the couples I work with tell me they're the real life Chandler Bing. Over the years I've become a bit of a specialist at working in a relaxed way which will put you at ease. I promise there'll be no awkward posing to give you the ick. I also pride myself on working super quickly. I won't keep you from your guests for long and I'm a bit of a ninja with the family group shots so you can spend less time with me and more time with your mates enjoying yourself! Win!
I honestly cannot recommend Lydia enough! Not only is she so lovely, but she is also incredibly talented. From the first enquiry Lydia was responsive, and made us feel comfortable. On our wedding day, it felt like Lydia was part of the family, she is such a natural photographer then we even forgot at times she was there to take pictures! The result was just these wonderful images that we truly will cherish forever. Even after the wedding, almost every guest mentioned how wonderful Lydia was and how refreshing it was to be present at a wedding where photography felt something happening in the background as opposed to being intrusive, it really did add to our day, she put us all completely at ease. I feel incredibly lucky that we had Lydia as our photographer on our wedding day, it is something I will always be thankful for, there is not a day I do not reflect on our wedding by looking at our beautiful images! We couldn't be happier and honestly can not fault one single thing.
Lydia was the perfect photographer to capture our wedding. She put us at ease with her relaxed and smiling presence, and took amazing photos without us even noticing! From discussing the plan before hand, all the way to delivering the final photographs, it was easy and fun. She was always on hand to advise and keep us calm. The photos themselves were more than we could have hoped for - she is talented, experienced and a true professional! Would 100% recommend to all!
Lydia Stamps is pure magic - we chose her to photograph our Wedding day as had seen her work at two other friend's weddings and she came highly recommended, and she did not disappoint! The photos are gorgeous, we loved the relaxed style and her advice and direction on the day was so helpful and got us exactly what we wanted. Lydia listened to our hopes for the photos and made us feel completely at ease and confident that we'd get what we were after, and something that was 'us', and not just run of the mill standard wedding poses. She was a pleasure to work with and a lovely, fun and positive person and I would recommend her to everyone! :)
I really cannot recommend Lydia highly enough. Her portfolio speaks for itself - she is a hugely talented photographer and captured so many beautiful moments at our wedding - but she really goes above and beyond. With Lydia we had a fountain of knowledge, a seasoned wedding expert full of advice when we needed it. She was so professional and organised, but also so friendly and personable, and really put us at ease. She did a brilliant job of being discrete, we barely knew she was there and yet there are so many wonderful candid photos to prove that they were! When our photos arrived we were completely blown away! Not only is Lydia a great photographer, she’s a lovely person and a delight to have involved.
Lydia took the most wonderful photographs of our wedding day - we are so proud of them and they're now framed all over the house! Lydia was absolutely brilliant on the day, with perfect natural shots highlighting all the best bits of the day, our friends and family and the venues. It felt like having another friend there with us who totally put us at ease throughout. We couldn't recommend her more.
