Reel life photos were very good to work with. Elaine took time out to get to know everyone who was going to be photographed. She was very friendly and outgoing.

Elaine was simply brilliant - a real pleasure to work with. I wanted a photographer who was able to capture the original moments for my wedding. Elaine did this perfectly. My album is beautiful and the lovely box gives it that added touch. Will be booking again for my Civil Ceremony.

we recently used Reel life photos for our beautiful wedding . our day was perfect and now thanks to Elaine I have beautiful photos that I can look back on and remember. we have been married three weeks and already have seen a few hundred pictures Elaine has posted . it was amazing to arrive at my wedding reception that evening get to find her and my husband had already managed to have me two beautiful pictures printed and in frames as a surprise for me. my father who I nearly lost in October and who managed to ditch his wheelchair and walk me down the aisle provided me with another beautiful moment which Elaine has recorded every moment of. she was fun , caring and has become somebody myself and my husband would class as a freind.. she did all of this on our very tight budget as she understood our family's needs . I feel so blessed to have had her as out photographer and would recommend her to everybody to capture the most amazing more. ends of your life

Elaine, you put us at such ease, renewing our vows in a big way..34 years, same day, time, bridesmaids and church...all the stress disappeared. On seeing the photos on the screen saver you made us, for the first time. I cried, and smiled at the same time. A life time of memories, with a promise of renewal. You’re an artist, a kindred spirit and blessing. You saw the once in a lifetime importance of everything we did, you saw the love we shared and you found the girl in me :0).
Kindest regards,

Elaine has covered several events with us at Crossley House in Halifax.

I have yet to see a photographer who captures moments the way she does.

I have no doubt the diversity and countries around the world that she captures in a single month is more than most people will see in a lifetime!

Review of Reel Life Photos by Sarah Phillips

Elaine is a lovely lady, full of energy and life. She photographed my wedding in 2011 and was a pleasure to have around. She was in evasive, and managed to capture the most precious moments of my day! She even managed to get a smile out of my dad! (Not easy) the photos she took were natural really captured the feel of our day, the images are perfect quality, and so stunning. I wasn't going to have a photographer, but when I spoke to Elaine, I realised that all I would have left was memories with no pictures to capture it. Each picture Elaine took tells a story, be it funny, or extremely romantic, or even nervous!! I wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend Elaine, a down to earth passionate person, Elaine has given me the most wonderful gift of memories that will last a lifetime.
Thank you Elaine,
Love, Sarah xx

Elaine made our wedding day a great experience for me and my husband. She was positive, cheerful and so pleasant that we were put at easy and she brought the best out of us as a couple in the pictures. Everyone who has seen our couple pictures have told us that they should be on a magazine cover. She captured even special moment and made it a great memory for us captured on film. Love you Elaine x

Elaine made our day a really enjoyable experience, I hate having my photo taken at the best of times especially if I'm required to pose but Elaine captured natural moments on film without people even knowing she was photographing them. Elaine is a lovely warm, friendly lady and I will definitely be recommending her to everyone I know. So many thanks from Stephen and Clair Pritchard. X

Elaine was absolutely fabulous, crazy and wonderful! Exactly my kind of person, and EXACTLY the person to take the photos for our Big Day! She was continually snapping away throughout the entire day and evening... Whilst chatting to guests and making everyone feel at ease. This enabled her to get real life shots and real life situations.... Laughter, fun and love were captured in every shot! We would not have chosen any other photographer and would certainly recommend her. Five stars ✨ all the way. Thanks again Elaine xxx

Elaine has been out of this world for me. She did my wedding photography 5 years ago in the Gambia. It was such a blessing to have had her there. Looking at my wedding album...i still feel like it was only yesterday! Quality of the photos were superb and my husband and I still get the loviest comments on the album as well as the wedding. Thank you so much Elaine for your hard work then and patience. I am so glad that she continues to capture priceless moments for people and would recommend her with no reservations. Her work speaks for itself. Thank you for being part of the beautiful journey with us. 5 stars all the way�����.

Reel Life Photos Q&A

Reel Life Photos Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

As an artist and a wedding photographer with 18 years experience, I would say being a great observer, so that when you r "camera eyes" spot a great expression, a good composition in an interesting light, that you are ready and the camera settings are correct at that moment in time. when you press the shutter. In the case of weddings, it is also the ability to get on with people so everyone feels you are part of their day., just like a family member or well-loved friend

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

The first question ALL brides ask me is "How Much?" but they often forget to tell me when, where, and what they are looking for AFTER having already fallen in love with my work! So maybe instead of asking a question, they could start by looking at some of the 50,000 photos I have online - mainly on our Facebook page, but all over the internet too? Am always happy of course to answer any questions, such as, do I have aback up camera, backup plan, can I hanf

What do you love most about your job?

I love making people happy! Sharing what could be the best day of their lives after all their planning, its lovely to help give all our brides , grooms, and their families a great wedding experience with loads of happy memories to look back on through the images I capture. As I am an artist too then my vision is well-honed, so we all get to enjoy the wedding day ! I also love that many of my brides stay friends with me via Social Media, so I get to know when they have a welcome addition to their family too!
My job has taken me all over the world taking wedding photos, so am very fortunate!

What inspired you to start your own business?

My son was my inspiration, as he also became a professional photographer (not doing weddings though!) so he encouraged me to believe in myself. My paternal granddad was also a wedding photographer, but I wasn't aware of that at the time. My great granddad also had his own darkroom (for developing films - the traditional media for black and white photography in those days ) .

Why should our clients choose you?

If you want a fun wedding and a great experience - as well as a record of you day in pictures - and video if desired - I just want to make my brides and grooms happy! After 18 years as a wedding photographer nothing will faze me! xx Elaine
