Ceri Guimaraes Luz Photography Cornwall

Hello! This is me… I’m Ceri, a professional photographer based in Falmouth, Cornwall.

I’m Mummy to two gorgeous young children and wife to my handsome husband Rafael.

When I started my company I wanted a name that meant something to all of us, and one that of course related to my work. I chose ‘Luz’, meaning ‘Light’ in Brazilian. With a Brazilian husband and children it seemed just right!

At 16 I began studying photography and my passion has continued to grow ever since. My Dad gave me his old Pentax camera when I was at College (In the time before digital cameras). I loved it. I spent many a weekend photographing Dad’s decaying sheds; close-up after close-up of their peeling paint and rotting wood. I was a stickler for details – nothing’s changed.

People fascinate me too. Documenting ‘The People of Perranwell Station’ in the style of Richard Avedon was one of my first College projects that I really enjoyed doing. Still now people and details are ‘my thing’. Which is why I love wedding photography. So many emotions in one day; excitement, nerves, happiness, anxiety… relief! All told through the expressions of the happy couple and their guests. What an honour to be part of it.

Many a wonderful wedding we’ve captured, all unique in their own special way. From Tregenna Castle in St Ives, to Scorrier House in Redruth. Lanyon Cottages in Hayle, The Blue in Porthtown, Penryn Town Hall and many more.

Cornwall is home to so many truly beautiful wedding locations and we cover the whole County, so whether you’re getting married in Bude or Boscastle, Fowey or Falmouth, Truro or Tintagel, (you get the gist!) … just let us know!!

If you are looking for a professional photographer in Cornwall; for weddings, family or commercial photography, I look forward to hearing from you.
