I love sharing good news and wonderful prizes with you, and today I’m thrilled to be partnering with award-winning wedding photographer, Margaret Soraya to offer one lucky couple FREE wedding photography, anywhere in the world!
I’m a huge fan of Margaret’s work and it goes without saying that she’s one of my handpicked Smashing Suppliers. She specialises in capturing moments, expressions and emotions in a gentle and unobtrusive manner, and having photographed almost 400 weddings she’s seen a huge variety of wedding styles and worked with all sorts of gorgeous couples.
Based in the beautiful highlands of Scotland but shooting weddings all over the UK and beyond, Margaret regularly photographs weddings in Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, and the USA. During the quieter winter months she works as a travel photographer and takes on commissions all over the world meaning she is no stranger to travel and is comfortable with photographing your wedding wherever it may be.
Her primary focus at any wedding, be it a large lavish wedding at an exclusive high end venue, or a small couples-only shoot, is to record emotions and real expressions and to produce striking images that are full of love and laughter. She works in a quiet, unassuming manner and is continually seeking out special moments.
If you’re getting married between 1st March 2017 and 1st October 2018, I highly recommend you enter the competition! Margaret would love to shoot your Jewish (or Jew-ish) wedding, so don’t miss all the giveaway details below.
If you’re not fortunate enough to win, Margaret would like to offer you 10% off your wedding photography if you then decide to go on and hire her.
Why Margaret Soraya would love to shoot your wedding… in her own words
I am an experienced photographer who specialises in capturing the small moments in all their glory, and Jewish weddings provide an exceptional stage to do this. The meticulous planning, traditions, music, and genuine loving family interaction between young and old allow me to create stunning vibrant portraits of the day.
My unobtrusive methods ensure photos capture the genuine feelings of people and show them in natural interactions, which are not forced or staged. ”
