Summer Love Associate Photographer // Meet Roxy

Roxy Wallis on capturing a moment

Summer Love Photography Associate Wedding Photographer  Roxy is a trained midwife, a mum of two and a lover of beautiful moments. Her father was her inspiration for photography and he prompted her passion. When Roxy first   began experimenting with photography, he would laugh at her for cropping the heads off or capturing too much sky above the subject. However, to this day she still likes to include pretty skies in her photography. “My father always encouraged me to own a ‘proper’ camera and not to just use a phone which got me practising and playing with the art of photography.

 Summer Love Photography is proud to have Roxy as a second shooter and she is also available for her own weddings this year. Her favourite moment of a wedding day is the couples photos when the bride and groom get to relax and really look at and talk to each other. “It gets so busy on the day but when the couple take a walk together, stand together and get close, you can really see all the emotions spilling over from the ceremony.” Roxy loves to get creative in this moment as a photographer.

 When dealing with the pressure of playing such a lead role in the most important day of someones life, Roxy calms herself by remembering the joy of her previous clients and lets this carry her through each event. That gives her the confidence to carry on. “Im not a naturally outspoken person, I find it hard to shout to a group.” As a result she uses a more quiet assertiveness to arrange group photos. The couples trust in which they place in her is what she is most proud of as a wedding photographer. Being such a pivotal moment in the bride and grooms lives, Roxy feels honoured to be entrusted with capturing that.

Roxy is Summer Love Photography’s newborn specialist photographer and is in the process of setting up her own natural light home studio. She loves to grab the fleeting moments of a newborn on camera. “Those precious few weeks pass by in a sleepless haze and all too soon they are a distant memory.” This is why it is a passion of hers to make sure its documented. Being most proud of her lifestyle images with families, she loves capture people in their own home with their newborn as an alternative to her planned home studio.

I like to work outdoors if possible as I much prefer natural light over studio lighting.” Roxy would describe her style as a mix of lifestyle and naturally posed with a contemporary feel. If Roxy isn’t photographing clients, you can find her photographing her own two boys, and her husband- much to his dismay! In her spare time she also loves to pursue Instagram’s beautiful feeds for inspiration or explore Pinterest.

Below are Roxy’s five favourite images and why she likes them taken as a second shooter and newborn specialist of Summer Love Photography. You can also find more examples of her work here – PORTFOLIO

I love the soft tones in this and how cosy it feels, although not quite as cosy as the baby will be in there!

I just love a happy confetti shot and this one oozes joy.

The mistletoe in the trees, the sunlight, the peaceful moment all add to a perfect moment in the middle of a busy wedding day.

I love how natural this candid snap of a wedding guest is and the summer vibes that it has!
