Deborah Bayliss is a professional wedding photographer whose work takes her throughout and beyond the West Midlands region.
She is also a qualified teacher, a skill set that often comes in handy on a wedding day!
Originally from Cheshire and more recently based in Staffordshire, Deborah specialises in reportage photography, preferring to capture the Big Day in as candid and natural way as possible. She enjoys the challenge of helping couples feel comfortable in front of the camera and is as happy working with a traditional remit of family portraits and group photographs as she is tearing up the Rule Book and going for something a bit more …‘organic’!
"There aren’t many of us who really like our photographs being taken but most, even the blinkers and frowners amongst us have at least one photograph of ourselves that we like and quite often it's one that's been taken without us realising that we actually quite like.
"Smiling only hurts if you're trying too hard so quite simply, the trick to a beautiful image is to be as relaxed and comfortable around the camera as you can."
Deborah actively encourages her clients to spend some time at the pre-wedding meeting, usually held at the reception venue, incorporating a 'practice' shoot which helps the bride and groom to gain confidence in being photographed and try out different ideas for vantage point and setting.
Her aim on the day is to make the photography fun and relaxed and actively encourages guests to take their own shots.
"I love chatting to a friend or family member with a keen interest in photography and sharing tips, techniques and ideas for something a bit querky or different. Everyone has at least a phone with a camera these days and by the time the wedding party has sat down to the wedding breakfast, there will already be a dozen images on Facebook! I never fail to be totally fascinated by the variety of different ways in which a single day can be viewed and captured!"
