One such lenswoman, who's work gives us little butterflies in our tummies, is Lisa Jane. A proud alt-girl with a down to earth demeanor, Lisa's work celebrates the texture of your wedding day in a creative yet realistic manner. Expect dreamy play with depth of field, clever crops, perfectly framed compositions, dramatic use of shadow and natural light and secret shots from behind doorways or through glass.
Lisa immerses herself in the beauty of your day, artistically preserving it's tactile beauty for generations to come to appreciate. She owns the art of memory making.Lisa has a growing reputation for her relaxed and fun attitude, enthusiasm and ability to blend into the festivities. She strives to make everyone feel relaxed and limits that dry style of direction that can produce half baked static group shots and stiff couple portraits. Instead, Lisa has a friendly approach, something which is evident in her joyous portfolio. There is not an awkward bride or gawping groom in sight amongst her visual anthology of love and happiness.
We caught up with the lovely Lisa Jane to find out what makes her tick, the highs of running your own creative enterprise and just how she produces such beautiful images...
Why did you decide to set up your own business?
For me, photography has never just been about a pretty picture, it’s the memories it can conjure, the stories asking to be told. It’s been a way for me to show people how I see the world and the stories I want to tell, and all those forgotten moments that come flooding back at just the glance of a photo. I never intended to be a wedding photographer and just kind of fell into it. I used to think it was very stuffy and traditional. However, upon trying it out I discovered this world of awesome couples and their weddings! They allowed me to do what I do best, tell a story,
What's been the coolest/best moment of your career so far?
I've been lucky enough to travel the world with my photography, which has been pretty amazing. I was named one of the 30 Rising Stars, which was a massive achievement for me. But if I'm honest, I love the fact that couples connect with my work. I get to create memories for them which will last a lifetime. That's what it is all about for me.
Who or what inspires you?
I get a lot of inspiration from films - Royal Tenambaums, Lost in Translation, Almost Famous, Blue Valentine. Some of the inspiration is visual and some is the connection and relationships. On a wedding day, I'm always looking for that connection.I get a lot of inspiration from music, and love it when my couples tell me all about the songs at their wedding. Certain songs can just capture a moment perfectly and I suppose that is what I am always trying to with my photography.
What words would you use to describe the trends for 2017?
For me, my couples seem to be really investing in laid back celebrations, shedding some of the traditions and really focusing on having fun - filling their days with their personality.
We cannot wait to see Lisa's colourful photos in person next Month at the Old Truman Brewery, and we can't wait to meet you too. If you haven't purchased your TICKET yet, you still have time, but don't delay or your might miss out!
