I called my company Gin Fizz Photographic as I wanted something that reminded me of my Grandparents, who were married in 1937 and were so important to me, their love for one another was so strong and inspiring. I also wanted a name that had a feeling of celebration, happiness, sunshine, and great times.
I am so passionate about photography, the wonderful art you can create with light, the fact that you can freeze a little piece of time in a photograph, preserve a moment or a memory forever. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t inspired to make beautiful images of life. I am so incredibly privileged to be able to do what I do, I am absolutely in love with my job. Every wedding I do is a pleasure to shoot; getting up for work in the morning always puts a smile on my face.
When I am not shooting fantastic nuptials and lovely couples, I work as a documentary photographer and photojournalist, covering stories in India, Afghanistan, Kashmir and New Zealand, as well as the UK. I have exhibited work in a number of photo festivals and galleries around the world, and have been published in The Guardian, The Times, The Independent, The Times of India, and Vice Magazine. I am represented by Agency Le Pictorium. If you would like to see more of my documentary work, please do take a look here: www.helenrimell.co.uk.
I bring my experience in photojournalism into all my wedding and portrait work; I capture every detail, the laughter, the tears, and the beautiful, sometimes fleeting looks between you both. I draw on my experience with, and love of people to ensure that your personality, individuality and style are visible throughout my photographs. I want each one of my images to exude all the emotions and feelings of the day, and show who you are.
I prefer to use natural and available light to create beautiful, atmospheric, artistic work.
When I am not working or travelling, which is another great love of mine; then you will most likely find me dancing, often in stunning Art Deco ballrooms around London, as I am an avid Lindy Hopper. I love swing dancing as much for the music as the dancing as I am a big jazz fan; the clothes are also rather fabulous.
I am very fond of the ocean, sunshine, walks in the park, love, laughter, art, food, friends, family, wonderful old black and white films, craft beer, and of course, a Gin Fizz.
I am happy, creative, adventurous, and very easy to get along with, I love to work with couples looking for something artistic, timeless, and full of life. If you like my work and would like to find out more, then please do get in touch. I would love to tell the story of your day by creating gorgeous images that will last a lifetime.
