INITIAL CONSULTATIONS

I’m committed to working closely with my clients to understand exactly what they’re looking for, then capturing the perfect moment with ease. The initial consultation will provide us both with the information we need and offers an opportunity to get to know each other a little before the shoot and can happen by email, phone or in person, as I like to do whatever is easiest for everyone.

Cost: Free

COUPLES AND FAMILY PHOTOSHOOTS

Photoshoots can be overwhelming, which is why it’s beneficial to have an experienced professional managing the details. 
Through this service, you can count on me to guide you in every step of the way.
These shoots happen on location, either of the clients choice or my own recommendation. 
These shoots help capture a more natural and relaxed setting for clients that might be nervous in a studio setting and helps me capture real emotions and memories for you to look back on.
This service is perfect for capturing natural family portraits instead of the more posed for studio shots or I also recommend these photoshoots to newly engaged or couples wanting some nice pictures together.
This service lasts an hour, includes soft editing and a link to a private online gallery of your special moments. 
£60 non refundable deposit to secure place, of which is included in the final price.
Cost: £100

WEDDINGS AND CIVIL PARTNERSHIPS

When it comes to wedding photography, I believe the better images come from the most relaxed people. If you feel comfortable you'll perform naturally in front of the camera without even realising and in turn beautiful imagery is captured by the end of your wedding day. I like to capture people's real emotions in the moment rather than the more posed for pictures, which I also provide for group photos.I stay as in-the-background as possible on your wedding day. The day is about you, and nobody else. I won't be too obtrusive unless absolutely necessary and I won't steal you away for hours worth of group shots.

When it comes to photographing you two as a newly married couple, we will go for a walk around the beautiful grounds of your venue for maybe 15-20 minutes before group photos.This is usually a really lovely time for you both to just take a minute, enjoy each others company, talk about your day so far.


I offer different options for what you'd like captured on your day, these can be packaged together to make the service perfect for you.


Engagement shoot
These portrait sessions can be as natural or as fun as you want them to be. The engagement shoot itself will last for an hour at a location of your choice or I have recommendations if your not too sure.

Capturing precious memories of your little ones first few months is so important as this stage doesn't last long, photography is a beautiful way to cherish it.
