Sophie TC Gloucestershire Family Photographer

Vibrant bright and natural Photography in Gloucestershire

Hi there, I am Sophie and I set up Sophie TC Photography for that exact reason, let’s make a memory that can live forever. I am predominantly a Wedding Photographer based in the beautiful Stroud Valleys in Gloucestershire. I found lots of my lovely couples were moving onto the next chapter in their lives and wanted more memories captures. So, Sophie TC Family Photography was born! 


 I live here in lovely Stroud with my Husband and lovely cats Callie and Cleo, who yes, I have far too many photos of too! 


I strongly believe that every photo I take is your memory and it should be as natural as possible. Natural both in terms of how you feel and the look of the photo. I myself find having my photo taken daunting and sometimes uncomfortable. Therefore, my biggest aim is to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your shoot. I want everyone to feel relaxed and at ease when having a photography experience with me. 

If you are looking for a studio with a backdrop style shoot or cake smash then I am probably not the photographer for you! However, if you want to have photos in the comfort of your own home or on a long (or short) walk whilst having just general chilled out chat, then I AM the photographer for you! 

I feel so privileged to be a part of your new life and creating wonderful memories and that is why I pride myself on producing you a collection of photographs you can cherish. I take the time to produce your photos so you can have a story of your new chapter in your life to look back on with a smile on your face. 

I have a relaxed, vibrant and natural style of photography, no trends or filters on your photos. You will never find that I limit you on the number of photos you can ‘choose to buy’ or charge you more for ‘extra’ photos. There is no such thing as ‘extra’ photos in my work as they are your photos. All my photography experiences can be tailored to your needs and your families. 

Want to see more? Why not take a look at some of my work and have a chat via my contact page – I would love to hear from you! 

Lets Make a Memory!

So... how did sophie tc Photography start?

Photography has always been a passion of mine. Anyone who knows me knows I love capturing special moments! 
So, in 2019, I finally took the plunge and set up Sophie TC Photography to showcase some of my favourite memories and photos that I was particularly proud of. All whilst still working a full-time job as a Primary School Teacher in a lovely little school in Stroud. I started off with landscapes, experimented with light painting and learnt how to use my new camera! I also loved photographing family and friends and even their pets. I taught some light painting classes in school and even took it out to local Scout Groups. 
I was then approached by the KatKinz Rescue centre to photograph some of their resident cats for their annual Christmas cards! Photographing kittens for hours – who could say no?! Katkinz are a wonderful charity based in Gloucester who specialise in the fostering and rehoming of cats and kittens. Visit the charity page to see some of the photos.  

Then in 2020 I bravely asked a very kind couple if I could ‘give their wedding a go as such’ and thankfully they said yes (they didn’t have a photographer booked) I found a new passion I never knew existed and a love for photography all over again! I was then hooked and could not wait to take this passion further and photograph more weddings.

Since then, I have been building my business and have had the absolute joy of working with some truly amazing couples, families and other photographers. This is just the beginning of the adventure.
