ABOUT ANNA B

Anna B Profile pictureAnna B Photography family

I’ve been a professional photographer for a good ten years now. It’s a job I kind of fell into, snapping photos of my kids and then realising how happy it made me. Prior to that I had a job in the corporate world and it was only when I took maternity leave that I realised my love for the camera and a need to learn more – that this was actually my passion – and so I took course after course to get better until I started my own business.

It’s a career that has taken me around the world, working in a variety of genres from the corporate and commercial to fashion and society stuff. Now based in rural Surrey with my husband and three children, I specialise in wedding photography. I’m really not exaggerating when I say that wedding photography is awesome. All the candid moments between loved ones, families and friends, it’s such a huge spectrum of feeling to capture in only one day and it’s this super-charged atmosphere and responsibility to document the day that makes me love it so much.

I’m especially delighted when working with couples who want to have a good time on their wedding day, who don’t let the wedding overtake them and who want to have fun with their favourite people around, whilst I casually document every moment in a relaxed and informal way – for a bossy photographer I am not! 

When I’m not working I’m a keen runner and am partial to the odd 10k here and there and more recently I’ve really gotten into interiors doing up our family home (talk to me about fabric, furniture, paint colours, yes really do…). Of course, my three kids keep me super-busy trying to keep track of all their sporting activities but once they’re in bed I love collapsing onto the sofa to enjoy a good box set with my hubby and a glass of wine. We also welcomed a new puppy to our family, a black Labrador called Lola. She’s absolutely nuts and I’m learning that when it comes to children, pets and decorating your home, pattern and colours are your friend, so I’m embracing that philosophy with gusto. 

Creatively, I am always trying to push the boundaries and with camera in hand tell the story of your day without posing or anything too contrived. Hopefully, the pictures on this website will give you a good idea of the kind of photography I produce. Whilst most of my work takes place throughout London and the South East I am definitely open to shoots further afield, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you like what you see.

I’ve had many incredible testimonials over the years but this one, from Carly,  is one of my favourites:

‘I suspect Anna was some sort of ninja in a previous job, as I didn’t notice her presence at all and she has an incredible ability to capture ‘moments’ naturally with an amazing use of light

Be prepared to find me in some odd positions throughout your wedding day, often found lying on the floor or climbing trees…
