Spotlight: Fly on the Wall Photography

Written by Grace Keeley

When I first came across Adele from Fly on the Wall Photography I saw this photo, and I’ve honestly never forgotten it. I love the pure, raw joy!

Adele’s photos aren’t like this by chance – she’s a genuinely lovely person, making you feel relaxed when she walks in the room, whilst always bringing the enthusiasm!

And that’s why Adele is one of our highly recommended partner photographers!

Who are you?

Hey 👋 I’m Adele from Fly on the Wall Photography.  I am a wedding, family and newborn photographer based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire – but I travel anywhere.  When I am not photographing awesome humans, you will find me out exploring with my own loving husband and three ferrel children.  I am very easy going in nature and you’ll find that I take this approach to my photography and relationship with clients.  I love to capture couples at their most relaxed, it makes for the most beautiful unposed images.  

What’s your favourite biscuit to have with a cuppa?

Dark Choc digestive, everytime! And I’m a complete coffee addict!  Oh but Jaffa cakes are quite a contender!

Why photography?

I have always been a people watcher, obsessed with storing memories. Some might call it a hoarder, aha! I was that girl that kept the first date concert ticket stubs in a shoe box. When I had my first child (13 years ago… shhh) it highlighted how quickly life changes and my love for photography grew from there. I just love to capture connections. My favourite connection to photograph is laughter! I will often find myself smiling while I edit images on screen – just drawn in by the powerful emotion.

Sum up your style in a sentence?

Walking through a field with a gin in your hand – Unposed, relaxed, chilled.

Relaxed, Natural,

Fun, Adventurous & Wild.

Top tip for couples?

Schedule couple portraits for Golden Hour (the hour before sunset) for the best light on earth ever!

What’s your favourite part of a wedding day?

Controversially – the speeches.  I get way to invested in these, I have to remind myself, I’m not a guest – stop joining in aha!

Why partner with us?

Trust. Just this. It is a beautiful industry to work in, in so many ways. But it is a hard industry to work in. When you get together your trusted tribe, hold onto them with both hands tight. 

Anything you want to add?
