HELLO AND WELCOMe,
I’M SHIANNE MERCER.
A STORY-TELLING DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN ESSEX. WITH A LOVE FOR ALL THINGS OUTDOORS, WILD AND FREE. I FOCUS MY WORK AROUND WONDERFUL WEDDINGS, LOVABLE LIFESTYLES AND LOTS OF LITTLE THINGS IN BETWEEN.
Imperfections are me and my world of photography. I have a visual understanding and love to capture imperfections that are some what perfect. Even the smallest detail could have the biggest meaning and a photographic memory of an imperfect moment is instantly made the most perfect moment there could ever be. I pride myself to tell a story with each photograph I create, a story that holds so much memorabilia and can be cherished not just now, but forever.
Some things that happen in life are such a blur or you are so caught up in the moment that you don’t see all the special little crackers happening in the background. I work to document emotion and narrative, personalities and a freeze frame of time. Whether it be; families, friendships or a memorable moment in life, a handful of details that some may find un-important or the family member you wish you had a photograph of but was too busy to get it, I get it. I understand and thrive off the importance of photographic media and its value.
I pride myself in creating something different and unique. My style of work is very informative and raw with tradition thrown in. Photographs are an extremely important material and cannot be undone so it is a must to photograph every moment as real as can be. Memories fade but photographs last forever and I do not believe in staging moments that are completely unnatural.
“At our wedding I’ve never felt so many emotions in one day, Shianne being the great photographer she is captured every single emotion felt on our day! It is important to have pictures that you can look back on as they are the only memories you have left close to reliving that special day. I cannot explain how amazing and proud I am of the way our photographs came out. They are truly amazing and when I look at the work Shianne produced I can feel the emotions all over again! I cannot wait to see our photo book full of all the photograph that were taken as I couldn’t choose a favourite. They were all just perfect”
