Documentary Wedding & Portrait Photography

Hi, I’m Louise, a Sussex documentary wedding and portrait photographer. I love photographing people and I want to create the best photographs for you. I really enjoy getting to know you and understanding your best qualities, so they can shine through in each image. I’m passionate about you feeling comfortable in front of my camera and I want to give you the best experience possible. I’m a full time professional photographer living in Hurstpierpoint where I also have a home studio. What I love about my job is the people I meet but best of all it’s the reaction I get when I hand over the pictures.

You’re getting married, massive congratulations. That’s exciting. I love weddings and I love getting to know you and feeling that I’m going on the adventure with you. By the time the big day arrives and I’m capturing it with my camera, I feel as emotionally involved as the other guests. When I feel the emotion, I express it through my images. It’s not unheard of that I may shed a little tear of happiness too! I’ve been told many times that people find me down to earth and fun, which is such a compliment. The most important thing to me is that you feel relaxed being photographed. It’s so lovely when people tell me that I made them feel comfortable. I photograph weddings in a candid documentary style, telling your unique wedding day story as it happens.

Why not hop over to my wedding page, see some more photographs and find out a bit more about my approach to your big day.

Looking for great portrait photography? Would to you like to have your family photographed and capture a moment in time? In the blink of an eye, your little ones have suddenly turned into big ones before you know it.  I offer relaxed family photography, either on location or at my studio in Hurstpierpoint.  The Cube is one of my family studio shoots which offers a unique twist on the traditional family portrait.  “Day in the life” photography echoes my wedding style and documents real-life candid moments. Sometimes it’s the simple things which hold the best memories.

I also offer relaxed couple and engagement photography, photography to empower women and headshots for actors and business people throughout Sussex.  So if you’re looking for a friendly and fun photographer to put you at ease and comfortable in front of a camera, let’s talk.

“Louise Sullivan, you were truly fantastic and professional, it also felt like you were one of the family and wedding party, you were unobtrusive and yet you got right in amongst us and captured our wedding beyond our dreams and expectations.” Karla - Bride

Horsham Registry Office Wedding

Mark and Steph’s January winter wedding was cold but sunny. They’d originally planned on a summer wedding but then decided why wait, they just wanted to get married. Horsham registry office is a Grade II listed Georgian building overlooking beautiful grounds and Horsham Park. I love Georgian buildings with their elegant tall windows and symmetrical […]

Sussex Wedding Photography – Tea Party Wedding

Quirky and kitsch was the theme of Jenny and Viv’s family orientated wedding. Jenny spent a long time collecting retro and kitsch cups and saucers for their Brighton tea party wedding. Informal and family orientated was the way they planned it. They wanted documentary wedding photography only with no formal pictures at all. Most of […]
