Dee Airey Photography, which is conveniently situated next door to The Pantiles Bride, opens on August 1, with an official launch weekend on September 17-18 when visitors will have the chance to win free portraits or enjoy a special launch discount on their wedding photography package.
“I’m incredibly excited to be opening the only wedding photography ‘shop’ on The Pantiles offering everything couples need in a relaxed, beautiful setting to help them plan how they will capture their memories of the most important day of their life, alongside our bespoke portrait studio where my team and I will be capturing individual and family portraits for our clients to treasure forever,” comments Dee.
Dee specialises in natural, un-posed, relaxed images that capture her clients’ true personality.
“I’m camera shy myself, so I understand how much of a challenge a lot of people find it to ‘switch on’ for the camera,” she explains. “My real skill is in putting people at ease and helping them forget the camera is there, so they enjoy their big day or their portrait session, while we create shots that capture the essence of their relationships and who they are.”
Dee is so passionate about what she does, she currently has more than 500 students across the world whom she is coaching to create successful photography businesses of their own.
“My new shop on The Pantiles brings all my dreams together,” Dee continues. “We’ve created a beautiful, welcoming space for couples to relax and discuss their big day and the look and feel they want to create in their wedding photographs, while the studio is light and airy to capture people at their best.
“Plus we’ve converted the basement into a fabulous space where I can run photography classes for professionals and those wanting to take their hobby to the next level.”
Anyone dropping into Dee Airey Photography over the official launch weekend on September 17 & 18 will be able to book a free mini shoot throughout September and have the chance to win a free full portrait session, worth £400, or one of ten studio credits, worth £100 each.
Engaged couples who visit during the launch weekend who book a wedding photography package before the end of September will benefit from a special launch discount of up to 15%.
