Natural wedding photography

Weddings are highly emotive, full of love, laughter and tears of joy, especially during the ‘I do’ moments. Your wedding should be a magical time and the last thing you want is a bossy photographer ordering you around. We wouldn’t dream of getting in the way: it’s your day.

Our style is natural wedding photography. We capture the look and feel of your wedding from the moment you begin your preparations through to the first dance, in a way that is discreet yet congenial.

We’ll photograph the delicious sense of anticipation as the bride dons her wedding dress and tiara. The emotion on the face of the groom as he sees his wife-to-be coming down the aisle. The joy and the nerves. The way you both feel when you say ‘I do’; your first kiss; the cutting of the cake and your first dance as a married couple.

As your photographer, I’ll be with you to preserve those intimate, unguarded moments. You’ll have precious memories to keep and treasure for the rest of your lives together.

How we work

We’ll get together for an informal chat about your wedding. We’ll talk about the style of your wedding, the venue, the schedule for the day and the type of photographs that you would like.

Before the big day we’ll have a pre-wedding shoot. This is your chance to get used to being photographed and practice stepping into your husband and wife shoes.

While you’re on honeymoon, I’ll edit and select photographs for you to choose for your storybook album.

If you’ d like to have a chat about our natural approach to wedding photography, give Rachel a call on 01832 720154.

Family portraits

Family portraits: cherished memories that last a lifetime

As a mother of two beautiful daughters, I know how fast childhood passes.

Children’s lives begin with so many firsts the first smile; birthday; tooth; day at school… then before you know it, they’re off searching for their own adventures and experiences.

We photograph natural and spontaneous moments that capture the true essence and personality of your child throughout their childhood. The twinkly smile, the cheeky grin or the solemnity of a thoughtful youngster.

We’ll give you a lifetime of memories in print and canvas to cherish. Book your family portrait sitting on 01832 720154.

How we work

Family portrait sitting should be fun, that’s why we’ll take time to build a rapport with you and your family.

It helps to wear clothes that you feel good in, whether that means faded jeans or a smart suit. You might want to bring a change of clothes too.

We usually shoot portraits in our spacious, purpose-built studio, but sometimes a change of scenery can help families to relax, so there’s also the option of our beautiful walled garden, which children love to explore.

If you prefer, we can attend a family gathering at a venue of your choice.

We’ll always give you a choice of photographs in colour and black and white. If you would like to have a chat about our natural approach to wedding photography, give Rachel a call on 01832 720154.

Pet portraits

Pet portraits: capture your animal companion’s true character in print

Whether they love long walks in the woods or curling up on your lap in front of the fire, your pets are important members of the family. We will create precious memories of your pets that you’ll want to keep for a lifetime.

Our photographs capture the essence of your pet’s unique personality, from the exuberance of a Labrador puppy to the elegant preening of a Persian cat.

Our sessions take into account your animals’ individual temperaments, ensuring a stress-free environment so their unique character will shine through.

Our studio has an extensive walled garden, perfect for exploring, playing and rooting around. We’ve got two lively Labradoodles of our own, so we understand your pets’ needs and will always put their welfare first.

With squeaky toys and refreshing drinks on tap, your pet will enjoy their photo session. Book them in today on 01832 720154.
