Unobtrusive Documentary style Wedding Photography,

My style is natural and informal. Most of what I capture is caught in the moment.

Thank you for visiting my website, have a look at my work while your here if you have any questions get in touch.

Unobtrusive Wedding Photography

Documentary Wedding Photography is a natural, unstaged style of capturing the moment. Capturing the love, the emotion and the fun.

My Wedding Blog is the place to see real Wedding.

So often when speaking to couples say that they don't like their photos being taken! There is a big difference a phone picture and the photographs that I take with my cameras the two can not compare.

With my documentary style, I don't have to get 'Up close and personal' I use a selection of camera lenses so that I can photograph from the other side of the room with ease.

Your Wedding is unique

You have spent a long time planning your Wedding Day every last loving detail.

From your beautiful Wedding dress to the table plan, flowers to bridesmaids shoe, no little detail has been left to chance.

I feel it is so important to find the right wedding photographer for you. Your wedding photographer will be with you during one of the most emotional days of your life.

“I do feel all Brides are more relaxed with a lady photographer”.

With no two Weddings being the same I don’t work to a setlist of Wedding photographs, but I do feel it is important to get a few photographs of the Senior members of the Wedding party.

Do you have a question? please feel free to call Me 07759403351 No question is too small or silly or use my Contact Form Here.

Wedding photography is an art 

I remember this is YOUR day and will be full of YOUR memories.

I never lose sight of this.

This is why I am lead by what you The Couple wants.

Before your Wedding Day

If you’re a little camera shy then it’s worth considering a Pre-Wedding shoot so we can get to know each other a litter.

Settle your nerves to get you more comfortable with Me and get an understanding of how I can photograph you without getting too close.

It’s a great way for us to get to know each other and shed any fears you may have about being the centre of attention and having a camera pointing at you.

Pre-wedding shoots can be a very relaxed, a walk in the countryside chatting and capture some lovely relaxed un-staged images.

It's a great opportunity to capture some great pre-Mr & Mrs memories. These images could also be used as Your Save The Date Cards or as a Signing Board on your Wedding Day.

As your wedding day draws closer I will arrange a meet up with you at your venue or venues where we chat through the detailed timings of your wedding day, including any special details or Wedding photograph requests you may have.

I love walking the grounds of the wedding venue chatting about your big day. Where you would like your confetti photograph to where you will take your first stroll as Husband and Wife.

On Your Wedding Day

I will arrive approximately an hour before your wedding cars arrive. I love the buzz and the excitement of the Bride prep it can be electric.

Being a female wedding photographer I feel Brides and the Bridesmaids are more relaxed with me in the room that a male photographer.

There are fewer worries with me mixing with the bridesmaids when they are getting dressed. I am happy to help with zips and tucking in hanger ribbons on dresses etc.

This is also the time for me to photograph your wedding flowers, bouquets with wedding shoes is always a favourite memory whether you are wearing Jimmy Choos, or Converse, capturing your make-up artist your hairdresser too.

After your Wedding cake has been cut and I have captured your First dance as Husband and Wife with the party starts... I will still be there.
