Meet the Artist
I’m Lisa Payne, and I’ve been a wedding, event and family photographer for ten years. Growing up, I always had a passion for photography. I received my first camera at eight years old, and I’ve not stopped taking pictures since! Some of my earliest memories are of looking through endless photos when I lived with my grandparents; My great-aunt owned a portrait shop on Wembley high road, and on the other side, my uncles were wedding photographers and aerial photographers. I could see the skill it took to make a great photo. My decision to be a photographer feels like a legacy that I am continuing.
How do you create your photos?
My approach is informal and relaxed; I believe that when you have a bond with your clients, the perfect photos find you. Getting to know every client is one of the most enjoyable aspects of my job; I’m naturally curious and love learning about people’s lives and experiences. It’s this that helps me to tell someone’s unique story.
What do you find most gratifying about your job?
I love the idea that these images will be part of the fabric of a family for all time. That the moments that I capture are locked into a visual memory, not just for the people in the photo, but for those that come after.
In a world where people fill their cloud storage with quick snaps, yet never go back to look at them, I love delivering photography that draws you back, time after time. What I do gives people something tangible to cherish, to adore, to share with the world: an heirloom that connects the past, present and future.
Who’s behind the lens?
When I’m not in my studio or photographing someone’s beautiful wedding, I can be found at home in Ruislip with my husband and nutty twins. Becoming a mother was one of the most fundamentally life-changing experiences I’ve had; I’m more emotionally tuned, more able to manage under pressure and definitely more able to multitask!
Here’s a little geeky fact…I love tracing family trees. In fact, I was an advocate for Ancestry for a few years, where I assisted people in tracing their heritage. This is partly why I love photos; they connect the people of the past to the future generations.
