I am Freya Whittington, a South Wales based photographer, Covering the Newport and Cardiff area.
So, Why do I enjoy photography?
To be honest, I once had my heart solidly set upon becoming a Veterinarian. However, as what started out as an innocent dabble in Art GCSE, ebbed into an A-level, I found myself turning further and further towards the lens, or more accurately, moving further and further behind it. I began to find a real passion in photography, I found that my photographs were allowing me to create and communicate in ways which had always felt unaccessible. Behind my camera was were I felt at home! After completing a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, I went on to graduate from the Photography for Fashion and Advertising degree at University of South Wales, Specialising in portraiture.
I’ve been photographing weddings since 2011, and I honestly believe that it’s the best job in the world. It’s a privilege to be working so closely with couples and their families on such a happy occasion. You really see the best sides of people. Pride, passion, emotions, and most of all love. I aim to capture the details of memories which will last a lifetime.
This website will provide lots of examples of my work, but if you'd like to see more, please feel free to check out my Facebook page too!
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any enquiries, I'm a huge fan of a cup of tea and a biscuit (or two) if you'd like to meet some time to discuss your plans, just let me know!
