Meet me, Sarah Rook

Creative lifestyle Photographer| Weddings| Portraits

Hi I'm Sarah, so here is a bit about me and what took me on the road to being a wedding photographer for nearly 9 years now.

I guess you never know what life will throw at you and where it will take you I truly believe photography found me!

Grew up with horses, animals and a love of music gaining an associate of the London College of music at 16. I left school with high ambitions to travel and was lucky to get a job with British Airways at Heathrow. I once met someone who told me that if you are going to be good at a job you should work in every department to know your craft inside out. (I try to apply that to everything I do) I later worked on check-in desk at Gatwick ,then airside and reservations and then even though I hated flying ha ha I landed my dream job as an air stewardess.

I met my soulmate and hilariously funny hubby (well not officially as we didn't get married) in 1993 and we had our first son a year later. Now a mum I had my feet back on the ground and was offered a job as business development manager for a travel company nearer home then 10 years later we had another boy, to me I had the world. 

I set out to make some personal memories when I bought my first camera over 16 years ago and became hooked. Soon I was finding models to pose for me, photographing motorbikes, out at sunrise with a flask or tea waiting for the sun to rise, walking miles to get to shipwrecks at 6 am in the morning and chasing storms, it was a buzz that took over. After entering and winning several competitions it led me to being able to buy the camera I'd been dreaming of. 

I turned my passion into a business in 2012 after devastatingly loosing my amazing man to cancer. It was sink or swim and I threw myself into making him proud and being the best mother and photographer I could be. Armed with emotions I set out into the world with a unique understanding of the importance of memories and I portray that into my photographs, this is never just a job to me its a privilige always looking for something special and going the extra mile to get it. For me photography is something beautiful that gives to so many people on so many levels, creating, feeling and holding moments forever. I just love romance and stylish shots that capture the uniquely intimate memories that a wedding day brings. Sometimes its magical photography with the simplest backdrops and others its the much thought over details. I love that couples are now putting their own style into their weddings with a wink to handmade tradition.

Quirky weddings, personal touches and unusual locations make me tick.
My wedding photography is about capturing stylish images inspired from classic, timeless elegance and emotions are the essence of my inspiration to press the shutter.

I just love pretty things, flowers, textures, colours, lighting from decor to fashion it all adds up to a beautiful ambience.

With a keen interest in dance, art, fitness, fashion and modelling these contribute to helping me to achieve shape, style, atmosphere and most importantly a vision for a good photograph.

I have a very relaxed, natural style with a happy fun tone to my photography I love what I do and it shows o and if you give me cake I that always helps ;)

I was born in Rye, East Sussex and am now living near Hastings covering all surrounding areas and as a former stewardess I love to travel and am willing to toddle wherever.

So if you are wanting trust and dedication I will bring my 'A' game and make you smile x

My Mission

Memories are special !!

Capturing natural images of special moments as they unfold is a privilege that makes being a photographer very rewarding. Looking through the lens of a camera makes you see life in so much more detail it teaches us to be more aware of not only whats in front of us but the elements around us that contribute to this picture . My aim is to provide my clients with photographs that they will love and visual story telling thats holds those memories safe.

"A story held eloquently in a photograph in a single moment in time"
