I am Liza Edgington, an award winning and published wedding photographer. It's now been 7 years since I discovered my love for photographing people, rapidly transforming into a passion for wedding photography. I don't shoot any other genre of photography and have dedicated all my time learning and perfecting my skills to become the best visual storyteller I can be!
I have quite an unusual commute to work, I actually live mostly in the sunny Algarve (where I grew up) but am based in Dorset during the wedding season. I cover quite a few miles during the year, by plane, car and ferry.
Long before discovering a passion for wedding photography, I can remember enjoying taking candid photos of my friends and family, it was my husband who gave me a DSLR for my birthday and that was it, my life changed forever. Just one year into my business I won Dorset Wedding Photographer of the year and went on to achieve regional finalist for the prestigious TWIA two years later, more recently I was invited to judge the photography category in The Wedding Business Awards and I am also a judge for the Rotary Young Photographer Competition.
I love to shoot beautiful, elegant & contemporary weddings, particularly the ‘English garden’ style weddings where my powerful visual storytelling teamed with a romantic and timeless style come together to reflect my love of people and their emotional connections. My other true love is travel and I am frequently working on international photography projects as well as mentoring other photographers on their journey to success with my luxury destination wedding workshops held in the Algarve.
I speak Portuguese fluently, have a love of cooking fresh Mediterranean food and enjoy reading biographies. I love stationery and keeping my work space inspiring although the day doesn't really get started until I've had my cup of tea, in my morning mug (does anyone else have a morning mug purely for the first cup of tea or is it just me?!) I am married to the love of my life who I've known since we were 13, we have two young boys to keep us busy outside of work, three dogs (a crazy Doberman, our lovely rescue Polly and of course, the alpha, my chihuahua Betsy - our home is by the sea so sunset walks on the beach are a regular occurrence!
The cherry on top of all this is certainly having a dream job that I absolutely love!
