The lady behind the lens.Meet Rebekah...
I’m Rebekah Thomas LSWPP, a wife to Stephen and a mum to my two daughters (Harriet and Bethany). I am also the owner & photographer of Rebekah’s Studio. My favourite things in life are my family, friends and cake (chocolate brownies being my absolute favourite cake!) I also love being able to share beautiful moments of two individuals and I feel honoured to get to work with such wonderful people each day.
Located in Honiton, Devon, however I photograph weddings throughout Dorset, Devon, Somerset and Cornwall. I have been a professional photographer since 2008 and photographed over 100 weddings.
After passing my photography GCSE and A-Level courses in 2004 and 2006, I then began commercial/studio photography in 2008 where I was employed by a local company to produce images for publications and websites. In 2011 I made the decision that commercial photography was not the career for me, so I started working along side wedding photographers to gain experience and to receive further training in wedding photography. In 2012 I felt I was ready to start my own business and run my own studio. It has has been a long journey with lots of struggles and bumps along the way but I couldn’t be more thankful with where I am now with my business.
I am a qualified photographer with the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and a qualified photographer with The Guild of Photographers.
What does LSWPP mean? – Licentiate qualification from the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.
My Style and How I Work
As someone who has already planned their own wedding, I know how important it is to have as much of the stress taken away from you, as possible. One of the biggest complements I have received from a Bride was “I didn’t even realise you were there” . This really typifies my approach to wedding photography.
My wedding photography style is very relaxed, and I capture the fun, emotion and beautiful details which have been added to make your day extra special to you and your partner.
During the newlywed portraits and any formal group photographs that are required I will work closely with you, and your guests by giving you all directions on how to pose naturally and relaxed to achieve the very best images.
As we live in the UK, the weather can be slightly unpredictable, in case of wet weather I come prepared with professional lighting equipment which can be used inside the venue to create beautiful images.
