LUCY J TOMS - PHOTOGRAPHER
I'm a Documentary Photographer specialising in Weddings & Portraits, which I shoot all over the UK & Europe. I live in Suffolk with my husband, Patrick, our 2 dogs (Max & Mungo), 2 cats (Tatty & Lula) and Daisy the Goldfish...
"Oh Lucy these are SO SO SO SO WONDERFUL!
They make me so happy and you capture everyone so WELL. You are A GODDESS!"
Sadly I'm not a Goddess... but I have spent more than ten years photographing weddings, telling the story of the day as it happens, with clean and beautiful images. I can't help but smile when I'm behind the camera, which is reflected in the photographs, capturing the emotions and reactions of couples and guests alike. I spend time before the wedding finding out as much as I can about you and your day, so that all you have to do is enjoy it with unobtrusive reportage photography.
My Wedding Photography Packages start at £1,500 and along with the USB of your individually edited photos and online gallery, I also offer beautiful Fine Art boxes of professional prints as well as Fine Art Albums.

Whether you're after a gorgeous Family Photo, Actor Headshot, Professional, Corporate Shoot, Environmental Portrait or Pet Portraits - I'm here to help. I work with you to suggest ideas for the shoot, wardrobe and the location - whether it be at your home, workplace or favourite hangout. I bring lighting and backdrops when needed to enhance your environment and build the story and scene around you. I spend time on the preparation, to come up with creative ideas for the shoot and work on the post production, to deliver final images that you (and I) are proud of.
