Hey, my name's Lu and Light of Wild was born out of a passion for storytelling, travelling to new places and connecting with new people. People who break the norm, who live life a little wildly and who aren't afraid of love & adventure.
If you're planning an intimate wedding or elopement somewhere you love surrounded by those you love then it would be great to hear from you!
I'm UK based but I will fly anywhere in the world to join you for your wedding day adventures!
"WE'RE THE ONES WITH MESSY HAIR, BARE FEET AND A WILD SPARKLE IN OUR EYES"

For Wild Hearts & Adventure Seekers
I'd describe my style of photography as a little moody, dark and grainy. I shoot for the shadows so if you're after light and airy then I'll be honest, that isn't me! With my love of being outdoors then I am creatively inspired by festival weddings, mountain elopements, forest gatherings, beach weddings, tipi weddings or rustic barn receptions.
Chilled out, owner of an inner wild child, adventurous. You aren't fussed about formal staged shots, you just want your day captured as it happens. Natural moments over set up ones mean most to you and you will embrace your wedding day and all the spontaneous moments that make it unique to you.
Pah, who cares about the rain, lets dance in it!
You are up for stuff I suggest on a whim like, 'Hey, see that old dilapidated building, go stand inside it, the light is good and you're going to look awesome!' OR, 'Shit, see that hill, let's go climb it, stand on top and let the wind blow you all over the place, it's gonna look amazing!".
As you can see, I get pretty excited about the potential of a beautiful image and I love working with couples who share that enthusiasm because lets be honest, this effort we put in now is for you to record a beautiful chapter in your life and your relationship. One that you will cherish for years to come as will your children, grandchildren and family thereafter!
You think travelling is the best thing ever and you have loads of stories to tell. You might feel a bit awkward about having your photos taken by the way and that's totally cool, you won't be the first and you won't be the last to feel that way but you will soon realise it's actually pretty easy just being you because that's all you have to bring to the table.
Building trust and friendship is killer for us to create cool stuff. You will feel more comfortable having someone who's more like a mate shooting you so I love to get to know couples before the big day. What makes you tick, what you've done off your bucket list and still want to do. It helps me shoot your day unique to you if I know your quirky habits and a little bit about who you are!
It also means that in the process, you will naturally get to know me a little too which means that come the day of your wedding you will feel like I'm an extra guest joining in the party.
.......and yup, that means I will be on hand to make you coffee or something stronger when the nerves kick in. I'll take you outside for a moment to catch your breath when everyone else is busying around you and I'll be on hand to pass tissues to your teary eyed Mum when she catches a glimpse of you in your dress for the first time.
I am not intrusive on the day of your wedding, I meander through your guests and watch every little part of your day unfold with eagle eyes and camera ready. I am a skilled hunter of moments. Moments that involve you or moments you didn't even know happened because you were too busy having fun.
Either way, your story will be told authentically, creatively and with my heart just as invested in your day as you.
Your love, connection and all of the above are the perfect ingredients for us to click and create something pretty dammed cool!
