Imaginative, stunning, skillful wedding photographer
We are so pleased we came across Denise's work on a venue image search and booked her immediately for our wedding. It was very important to us that we booked a photographer who knew how to work a modern venue and we could not have found anyone better! Denise's photographic skills are incredible and her imagination has certainly shown through in our photos - we never expected we would look like movie stars - the wedding photo's are stunning!Sent on 06/10/2018
Denise documented our day brilliantly, with even the minutest detail captured, it will certainly help us to re-live the day in many many years to come. We have received fantastic feedback from our guests about how professional she is and how discreetly she involved herself in capturing special moments and memories during our day.
We cannot thank her enough in providing us with lasting memories that we will treasure and made our special day even more so with stunning photos that we'd usually expect of models in magazines!
We definitely recommend Denise for providing the most magical photos for lasting memories.
Wonderful photos capturing the emotion of the day!
Thank you Denise for being the most amazing wedding photographer for our special day.Sent on 08/06/2018
We were so glad that Helen told us about you as the moment we met you we knew you were exactly the person we wanted for our wedding day. Firstly we loved all the pictures online of previous weddings you had done, if you remember me saying we looked at over 30 photographers and then we saw your photos and were blown away by them.
Secondly your personality was what made us know we had made the right decision. At the engagement shoot we had so much fun and were totally relaxed around you, coming from two people who hate having their picture taken, that is a huge compliment.
On the day you were fantastic and made us feel at ease especially when the weather wasn't being particularly kind to us. We are absolutely delighted with all the photos, you totally captured the emotion of the day and we couldn't be happier with them all.
Thank you so much for being part of our day and for capturing our wedding in a way we could only have dreamed of.
Wedding Photography Royal Berkshire Hotel
Denise was recommended by the Royal Berkshire as she is one of there preferred suppliers. She was brilliant from our first point of contact and made us both feel really welcome. On the day she was there when you needed but otherwise discreet. She made our family and friends feel really comfortable and relaxed. Our pictures are the perfect blend of fun, relaxed and tell the perfect story of our wedding day.Sent on 19/08/2019
