Wonderful photos from our wedding!

Rachael is a fantastic photographer, and took incredible photos of our wedding day. She was a relaxing and calming presence throughout, and captured the natural moments of us and our guests, which is exactly what we had hoped for! Her style is beautiful and captivating, and her editing of the photos shows flair for enhancing the essence of the moment as it took place. We would thoroughly recommend Rachel as your wedding (or other event) photographer! Thank you Rachael for the wonderful memories!

When the photos came through, it was so delightful to see how much she had personalised it all! She captured our special memories so beautifully and playfully, just as we had hoped! Highly recommend As You Are Photography! Thank you Rachael! Hannah and Hugh
