Stu and Anna from Cooper Photography

About

Stu’s style is all about making people feel at ease with great communication and relaxed direction. For us, it’s all about working quickly making people feel relaxed and getting gorgeous natural pictures. Looking amazing in your pictures is our top priority and we’ve found that the best way to achieve this is by using traditional film cameras. Colour film has a look that digital just can’t quite emulate. Anna’s style is much more reportage and involves her blending into the background to capture the day. She’ll be there to document the special moments and atmosphere, capturing people when they are unaware so that it’s beautifully natural. We understand how the other is thinking creatively and how our different visions compliment one another. If Stu is setting up a full-length, Anna will know to zoom in and capture the expression, bringing together two very unique images but from the same moment. This synergy is at the heart of our signature style.

We are blessed that we get to work together and do what we love every day; there’s not many people are that lucky and it’s something that we are truly grateful for. We’ve been married for 11 years, working together as Cooper photography for over 13 years. When we first met we quickly bonded over our love of art, interiors and anything retro. Whilst we love to travel, especially for weddings, our favourite place is home. We live in Hampshire with our two children, Nathaniel 12 and Marnie 8, and our cats Bella & Flossy. Life here is pretty sweet. We live a short distance from the New Forest and the beach and 1 hour from London so we get to enjoy everything the south coast has to offer – especially beautiful locations for photo shoots!

Tell us what makes your business special.

We are Anna and Stuart Cooper and you can probably tell we absolutely LOVE capturing weddings. Just like you, we value time and quality and with two photographers were able to give you all the time and freedom you need to enjoy every moment of your wedding day. We are always in tune with what’s happening around us so you never have to worry that we’re not capturing all the important details and moments. Time is precious and we want you to enjoy every second of your special day and the photography to fit around you – were just there to capture the emotion and the story. This philosophy is reflected in our style. Much like the crackles on a vinyl record we like our images to have that special something – movement, softness, a raw organic feel. Our style is natural, classic, fine art. We believe your pictures should be timeless. You won’t find any drones or smoke bombs in our portfolio – only natural soft romantic images that are gimmick-free and will still look incredible in 10 years time.

Why do your customers fall in love with you?

Our long experience in this industry has taught us exactly how to approach a wedding day. Our clients love how we blend in and quickly build a positive rapport with all their family and friends. This enables us to get the very best from people and to creatively capture the story of their wedding day. After the wedding, our couples are always astonished at how many moments we capture especially the ones they might have missed.

Myself & my Wife have just spent a very emotional hour going through our wedding photos for the first time, Stu & Anna have done such an amazing job capturing the whole story of our wedding day in such beautiful pictures we are both over the moon. We were so happy on the day with how professional they were at trying to get the many photos we had asked for, whilst all the while seemed to be just in the background happily mingling with our guests. We can’t say enough good things about Cooper Photography if you look at their work you can clearly see what an amazing eye they both have but as important we think they are both lovely people which made our whole experience with them feel personal which is what we really wanted. Thank you so much, Stu & Anna, you’ve made us both very happy!

We wanted our wedding to have some element of connection to a part of our lives. We also wanted a venue which would be unusual and memorable for our guests. That’s when Boon started thinking about the possibility of having it at Winchester College, where he spent many happy years at school.
