My name is Lucy Wilson and I’m a qualified, passionate and experienced photographer based in Devon.
Based in the centre of Devon, I provide newborn photography and portrait photography across Devon and the South West. I’m passionate about my work and enjoy working with my clients to capture beautiful images.
I studied photography at Exeter College and completed a BTEC National diploma to triple distinction level in 2008. This two year course provided me with an excellent grounding in photography. I was in one of the last years where photography and development on film was taught on the course and only moved to digital photography for the second year of the course. I enjoyed shooting on film and learning to develop images in a darkroom. Much of the coursework for my Diploma focused on action sports photography, which I loved doing because of the challenge of capturing fast moving subjects with a very small window of opportunity.
I began my own photography business part time in 2008, specialising in wedding and family photography. During this time I also worked at Devon Camera Centre, based in Exeter. I enjoyed working with a fun team of photography enthusiasts and was given the opportunity to attend London Fashion Week with Canon UK. I also developed a great understanding of photography technologies. My photography business really took off in 2009 and I spent a busy couple of years as a Devon wedding photographer, shooting weddings at venues all across Devon.
I have always enjoyed capturing the joy present at weddings and the intricate details couples create to make their wedding unique. I like to create images that display the happiness of the day, in a natural and candid style and also reflect all the hard work couples have put in to make their day perfect. As well as capturing weddings, I also enjoy capturing baby, child and family portraits. Since having children of my own I’ve also learnt the fine art of newborn photography, and find it extremely satisfying capturing the peaceful beauty newborn babies and the endless ways to create these images.
