Under the Spotlight – Jodie Chapman

selfportrait

Oh you lucky lucky things, I’ve got another amazing photographer to share with you again today – and it’s yet another one from the UK. I have to say, hasn’t the UK being storming it recently!? There us so much talent out there, I just wish I knew about all this lot when I was getting married! I’ve been lucky enough to feature Jodie Chapman’s work on the blog before, and with features in national wedding magazines and all over Blog Land she is certainly one to watch.

Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Jodie Chapman and I’m a wedding and portrait photographer who strives to create beautiful and timeless imagery that will still look fantastic ten years from now.

Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to work in?

I am based in the southeast of England but will travel anywhere in the world! For example, 2010 sees me photographing weddings all over the country as well as the South of France.  I recently photographed a pre-wedding shoot in New York City and am currently in consultations with a client about a bridal shoot in NYC towards the end of the year. I love to travel and consider it a privilege that a bride and groom want to fly me out across the globe to capture their special day.

European Chic

Damien & Nadia live in London (although Damien is originally from France) so they chose to have their engagement session in the UKs capital. Haven’t this pair got that European chic feel? Fabulous fashion indeed.

A Little Help From My Friends

I was already brimming over with excitment to feature this wedding by one of my newest Scottish photographic discoveries Mirrorbox Photography, but then I found out that this blue dress bride was actually one half of the talented team. A true Rock n Roll photographer if ever I’ve seen one – she only even went and had her own Rock n Roll wedding!

“Being a wedding photographer myself I knew how important the photos were going to be at my wedding.  I am one half of Mirrorbox Photography.  I worried about asking my business partner Sequoia to take the photos as she was also going to be a guest at the wedding but I really didn’t want anyone else to shoot it.  She was the only wedding photographer I knew would take the amazing photos I wanted and thankfully she happily agreed.
Asking friends to get involved became a bit of a theme to our wedding.  In fact when we put together our guest list each person had a skill we could utilise next to their name.  This was not only a way to cut costs dramatically but it was also a great way to get people involved.  We knew that we wanted our wedding day to be very personal to us and to all our closest friends and family that would be there. 
My husband and I with the help of our creative friends designed and made everything from rings to invites to flowers, we even made our own champagne! I designed my own dress, which I then had made at Che Camille in Glasgow; an independent design studio featuring local artist’s work. My headpiece was made by Williams Chambers Millinery.   The bridesmaids also designed their own dresses. 
I didn’t want Sequoia to be working all night so I utilised a small room off the main hall to our venue and turned it into a self portrait photo booth, setting up lights and a camera with a trigger release.  This proved to be great fun on the night and even more fun looking through the results after.  This was also another great way to get people involved.”
