Carla Thomas

I’m a London wedding photographer now living in the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside with a love of gorgeous places but an even bigger love of incredible people.

I actually started out in travel and landscape photography, which combined my love of adventure and exploring perfectly, but fell in love with wedding photography after a family friend asked me to assist them on a wedding. Whereas before my people watching consisted of me trying to guess people’s backstories based on the movements and moments they wouldn’t even notice, I am now privileged enough to not only know their backstory, but get to capture it forever, in all of its emotive, romantic glory. Though the grand gestures are significant, for me the smaller moments matter even more, and I vow to capture all of them authentically and beautifully.

As well as giving my couples the best possible photos, I’m also there as a helping hand through the process - with a background in events planning, I can help to reduce your stress. I’m also here to minimise stiff posing and awkwardness - my couples prefer spending time on the day with their loved ones rather than endlessly posing, my approach on the day reflects that.

When I’m not photographing weddings, I’m feeding my curiosity and creativity by exploring new places. I’m happiest looking at elephants, clouds, sitting by the sea or eating cake – if you have all four, I might cry with delight! Though it is decidedly elephant-free as far as I’m aware, Iceland is my spiritual home; I love the scenery, and just feel at peace every time I visit. If you happen to be a couple in love thinking about marrying there and need a photographer, you know who to call… It’s me, by the way.

I also love reading and if I’ve not behind the camera, my head’s in a book collecting random trivia facts - for example, did you know there’s only 3 types of elephant left in the world (that’s the Indian, African Savannah and African Forest) and there are only 2 landlocked countries that are surrounded by landlocked countries in the world (Liechtenstein and Uzbekistan). Think of me next time you win a pub quiz!

In between adventures, you can often find me at bootcamp, reading, playing boardgames (I’m a Patchwork and Ticket to Ride champion, mainly against my partner Alex) and, of course, planning my next trip!

If you’d like to have me as part of your adventure, I’d be honoured and can’t wait to hear from you.
