I almost didn't have a Wedding Wonder of the Week this week.....how did Wednesday sneak up so quickly!?.......but thankfully Jade saved the day! Today's 'Wonder' is an incredibly talented photographer - her pictures perfectly capture that bubble of excitement between couples in love.......you'll see what I mean.
So I give you Jade Langton Evans Photography...........
- Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
I have always loved art and beautiful imagery for as long as I can remember. It has always been a part of who I am. I became interested in photography when my art teacher encouraged me to photograph as part of a project I was working on. I began to fall in love with photography and went on to learn more about developing in the dark room. I became most interested in capturing “moments” my inspiration being Jaques Henri Lartigue and Henri Cartier Bresson. I became in love with capturing special moments of love, laughter, happiness and smiles.
My company Jade Langton Evans Photography I specialise in wedding and portrait photography for couples, families, babies, bumps and children. It makes me happy. This is how I feel. “Photography is my life, my passion and my love. Capturing beautiful moments within weddings and portraiture brings me great happiness and joy. It is art, it is love, it is expression of the heart. My work speaks for itself to those who love feelings and emotions.
I am greatly honoured to be apart of documenting ones intimate moments and life stories. I am in love with what I do and I hope to inspire others and stand out to those who want me to photograph their story.”
- Are you married? And if so will you share some of your details?
Yes I am married! Very newly actually! I married my gorgeous hubby just last year April 2nd 2010. We became best friends first and both share a huge love of food! We fell in love and the rest is history, I couldn’t imagine my life with anyone else. He really is an amazing person, so patient so full of love! What more could any girl ask for! The wedding plans were a bit mad and I organised everything! It was great though, spring wedding, lemon bridemaids dresses, designed my own dress and had it custom made beautiful! Lots of food, people we love. Amazing photographer, cellist who played beautifully! And I wore my wellies :)
- What attracted you to working in the wedding industry?
I firstly enjoyed taking my camera to weddings I attended and from then I had several friends who asked me and it went from there really. For a very long time I knew that my passion is photographing people and it was a big leap from working another job to it actually being a photographer in business. But its amazing doing something I love. It really doesn’t feel like work most of the time! The other reason.. I LOVE weddings! Its really great when I get to have a chat with prospective bride and grooms and chat about their special day. All their details and themes I just love! But most of all what an honour to be able to capture lasting memories as the wedding story of brides and grooms. I feel special to be a part of the wedding day and really capture the spirit that’s there, the happiness of the couple and the celebration of their future life together.
- What is your favourite part of working with bride & grooms (to-be)?
I love the engagement photo shoot, it’s a really great opportunity to meet beforehand and go to amazing locations, get some great shots, Have a good laugh and make it all about them. Getting to know each other I always find makes it so much more relaxed on the wedding day.
I especially enjoy themed shoots with the couple as this can make it really about them and really reflects their personality and happiness as a couple.
- What is your most favourite wedding theme at the moment?
Gotta love vintage! I really do! Little tea cups with flowers, bunting, lace,
I also love just really quirky themes that people have to which makes it all about them. Anything personal to the couple makes it more exciting.
- Top wedding tip?
Don’t get stressed! That’s a biggie…I did majorly! Enjoy..the planning and don’t let anyone else tell you how to do your wedding! :) It s all about you..
- What do you think the next big wedding trends might be?
I think people are getting more wacky with their ideas and its becoming a trend in itself. I've seen some really mad weddings like on Halloween for instance where they dress all halloweeny down to venue and facepaints..so who knows!
- Where can we find your fabulous company?
I am based in
Shropshire, but I will travel anywhere if you love my style! :)

- What are your plans for the future?
I’m always thinking up new ideas, learning new things; my main thing which I will always do is to keep inspired. Keeping my mind with lots of creative ideas helps me to keep things flowing. The photos I create, especially for portraiture are creative pieces of Art. I’m also hoping to do a lot more trash the dress session and have a lot of fun creating art for people to enjoy in their home.
I'd like to say a huge thanks to Jade for sharing her story and these gorgeous photos with us. And for getting it all over to me in record time - you're a blog saver Jade :)
Hope you've enjoyed......
Love Kate x
