'Working with Rosie was lovely, from start to finish. I highly recommend her as a professional, creative and compassionate photographer. Thanks, Rosie!!'  Jenny

I'm Rosie, the Photographer from Rosemary Després Photography. I'm a Professional Photographer. Originally from Guernsey, now I am settled in beautiful Devon in the UK, and travel all over the UK for Weddings.  I am known for my natural, not intrusive photography style and flair for photos of capturing people interacting, just being themselves; I shoot in a very natural, photojournalistic manner for all sorts of clients. I have shot Press for the BBC Gardener’s World Shows, nature conservation organisations, corporate clients, and of course not forgetting Weddings! I have been fortunate enough to shoot Weddings not just in the UK, but also in France and the Channel Islands.

 

I just take on a small number of weddings each year so I can dedicate a lot of time to them; my work is for the couples that really value photography and view it as an important investment, akin to your wedding rings. I am devoted to producing a very high standard of photography so you can be assured of stunning, high quality imagery. I work tirelessly throughout the day to get the results you desire, catering my work and hours of coverage so it's personalised to you. Before your Wedding day, we always have consultations so I can find out how best to serve you. If you don't want getting ready or group shots, that's no problem!

How I work is to step back, and let the day naturally unfold. This method also allows me to just remain inconspicuous, and photograph those lovely moments of people interacting; you should just forget I am there - clients have likened me to a ‘ninja!’ I work hard throughout the day to make sure that every guest is photographed at least once. When I photograph, I tend to photograph from further away so you can see the environment, so each photo is in context and always evokes the scene. I also continually take scene setting shots and pared back details throughout the day, so a strong narrative can be told in your Album, and those reception details can be captured!

 

Each photo is thoughtfully composed. I always provide beautiful Panoramic photos so you’ve got a variety of sizes to choose from for your wall art! I also provide every photo in colour, and some photos will also be in black and white which are edited to a very high standard. I only use natural light but do use flash in the evenings if needed.

When I'm not taking photos, you'll find me enjoying the outdoors: outside swimming, running or walking, or reading and making art. I am an intensely creative individual and love colour! I was recently involved in the amazing 209 Women Project, where I photographed MP Michelle Donelan. The project aims to champion the visibility of women in art and politics; the portrait now being held in Parliament’s Collection.
