Surrey Wedding Photographer

Eleanor Joy Photography

Hello, I’m Eleanor, a creative wedding photographer living in Surrey with my husband and dog. 

I haven’t always been a wedding photographer. Once upon a time, I was a little baby: born to a vicar and a french teacher. When I became a child, I developed my love for people and an admiration for human interaction. When I became an adolescent, I was given my first camera and that is when I’d say I became a photographer.

The camera came everywhere with me: throughout Europe, Australia and Africa. It was by my side at school, sixth-form and university (BA Graphic Communication, Bath Spa). I’ve now been photographing weddings since 2013 (which is when I graduated University) and it’s part of who I am. It draws together all things I love in life and it thrills me to know the images I take will be passed on for generations to come.

My love for wedding photography is sustained through everyone and everything that inspires me. I enjoy meeting new people, going to new places and discovering new stories. My passion for story telling and creativity rolls into a desire to make beautiful colourful images that will last the generations.

I’d like to be remembered as someone who made the world a little bit brighter. I like bringing joy to others and on your wedding day I will help you in every possible way to achieve your desired images.

Apart from wedding photography, I enjoy reading, spending time with friends and family, going on walks with Michael (my husband) and looking after Summer (our dog). I also grow vegtables on an allotment with my friend Flora.
