our story and philosophy
love letter from anastasia woolmington,
editorial wedding photographer
Hello and welcome, friend! I am so grateful you are considering Serenity Photography for your event. I feel humbled and privileged for the opportunity to document your love story.
As you browse through my website, you will find that my work has been influenced by films, where characters tell inspiring stories of love. One of my favourite movies “Love Actually” begins with the following lines that stayed in my heart since the film first came out: “Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.
Savoring life — that has always been a part of my story. As a child, I traveled all over Europe and fell in love with the culture and effortless sophistication. When I discovered film photography, it felt like my worlds collided. Art, romance, culture.
I’ve found that weddings and age-old cities alike have delightful surprises and experiences that leave you awestruck. Riveting elegance that feels more familiar than foreign, like the historic Italian chateau you spent the summer in, and where the locals know you by name. There’s an irresistible sense of belonging. You could say I have an affinity for European flairs, and for the ethereal, and it’s true. My partner and wife, Kristy, is the same way. This is what led us to working with couples who can’t quite describe it, but who know they are looking for that very thing.
With that being said, I am both a dreamer and a doer, romantic and reserved. This contrasting approach complements weddings better than I could have imagined, allowing me to create, adapt and acknowledge the beauty that is already in front of us.
