Welcome to Lisa Beaney Photography
Hello and welcome.
My name is Lisa and with my husband Phill we run Lisa Beaney Photography. I am a full time professional photographer specialising in Wedding Photography, Family & Newborn Portraiture. We work from our studio in Steyning, West Sussex. Steyning is a picturesque village at the foot of the South Downs National Park between Worthing and Brighton.
Our fully equipped studio is about an hours drive from East Grinstead, Gatwick, Dorking, Guildford, Chichester, Eastbourne and about 30 minutes from Brighton, Worthing and Horsham. Many of our clients work in the City, so if you are travelling down from London the nearest station is Shoreham-by-Sea; and if you let us know which train your catching we can arrange pick you up from the station.
Before re-training as a photographer I was a qualified software engineer and this IT knowledge has proved invaluable in the digital photography age. Since changing careers in my mid thirties I have gone on to win many awards as well as becoming a keynote speaker for the SWPP ( UK’s largest photographic organisation) regularly running training throughout the UK and Ireland.
I love what I do. For me weddings are about people; capturing the emotions of the day as well as some of the more formal photographs. Every bride has a picture in her mind as to what she will look like as she walks down the aisle on her wedding day. So, for me, it is important to find out as much as I can about all the details of the day to ensure that I capture the day in the mood and style the couple have created.
Photography is all about light, the direction of light and how you use and control light is what creates the look and feel that you want. I have been lucky enough to train with some of the worlds best wedding and portrait photographers both in the UK and abroad.
