A very talented photographer and a wonderful person

Carla did both our civil ceremony and wedding day shoots. She is an incredibly talented photographer and knows how to make you feel comfortable to get the most out of your photos. We felt we had made the right choice straightaway - she was so on top of all of the communication and managed our expectations so that we knew what to expect on the day(s) and also when we finally received our pictures. All our guests loved her. I really highly recommend Carla Thomas Photography. Thank you, Carla for capturing such important moments in our lives with so much kindness, grace and professionalism - we are so very grateful.

Seamless process

We had the pleasure of working with Carla as our wedding photographer, and I couldn't be happier with the entire experience. From the moment we had our first phone call to the moment we received our pictures, everything was incredibly seamless and stress-free. Carla's professionalism and patience really helped to capture the most beautiful moments of our special day. She managed to make our guests feel comfortable and at ease. The pricing was competitive, and the quality of the work far exceeded our expectations.

We recommend Carla to anyone seeking a wedding photographer who not only produces stunning images but also provides an exceptional, stress-free experience from start to finish. My husband and I are very happy that we have not found our family photographer.

Captured the true spirit of our wedding day in the most natural way

Carla is a professional photographer who knows well what background, poses and moments are the best to take the best photo shots. Our photos are amazing and we’re so happy we have such brilliant pictures to look back on and remember our day by. Carla is approachable, warm, friendly, polite and captured the true spirit of our day. Our family loves the photos too and want copies of some of them. The photo gallery and video brought us so many treasure memories. We’d recommend Carla to anyone! Thanks Carla :)

Captured our Special Day with Magic

There are no words to possibly describe just how personal and beautiful each photo that Carla snaps!

Carla really took the time in the months leading up to our wedding day to get to know us and fully understand what we wanted to get from the day and how best her services would help us achieve that.
On the day, Carla demonstrated her skills in photography and artistic eye extremely well by capturing elements of the day that we could never have imagined. Her smile, personality and professionalism are second to none.

Carla really does create a beautiful magic to your day!

Carla is the Best!

Oh where to start! I truly believe the day we bumped into Carla’s photography profile on the website Hitched was not by chance. Carla was Godsent. We were searching around for a photographer that would be best suited to us. We wanted to be both comfortable on the day and have those special photos. Carla’s profile stood out for us, and her personality and speaking to her over the phone solidified that. We had a small wedding. On the day, Carla captured every moment, she missed absolutely nothing!!!! Going through our wedding photos, we were able to relive the day from start to finish and each photo is so special! We didn’t have a videographer and we were worried we would regret that, but after seeing our wedding photos, the worry disappeared. She truly preserved the memory of our wedding day and we are and will be forever grateful. Carla is warm, friendly, funny and made us feel at ease. We had people at the wedding ask whether she is related to us, that’s how much she fitted in with family and friends on the day. She instructed us about what to do when we were taking solo and group pictures which was really helpful. She used pre-wedding questions to get to know us as a couple and to know what we wanted. She also added her special touch on the day. Carla is not just for the wedding day, she has kept in contact with us, sending us thank you and christmas gifts, and a happy 6 months anniversary email. Carla is dedicated and passionate about what she does. We will definitely be using Carla for other life milestones and we cannot recommend her enough.

Enjoyable experience from start to finish

From the very first correspondence, she was very friendly suggesting a zoom call to get to know each other a little better. This made us feel very comfortable especially with my husband who is not comfortable with photos so she really helped to put him at ease with her explanation of her candid style which was perfect for us as we wanted more natural pictures memorialising the day.

On the day, Carla arrived and immediately fitted in, and got stuck into the shots, she also felt like a family member had arrived to lend a hand with wedding prep but all whilst taking lots of photos.

Most guests were surprised that we hadn’t known Carla prior to the wedding as she honestly fitted in like a family friend. All guests at the wedding loved her and commented on how amazing she was in her direction of the obligatory post marriage shots but also as a person, she fitted in superbly navigating her way around the wedding.

As a result our photos are a perfect packages of memories of our day, from the paper shots to the more candid documentary style pictures, they are edited and curated beautifully, we couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect and more ‘us’

Anyone looking for a wedding photographer I would recommend they hire Carla in a heartbeat, she is very kind, sends lots of communication and advice leading up to the big day. She asks lots of questions and as a result it felt like she got us and exactly what we wanted.

Also a word of advice for anyone wanting wedding photography….be brave in what you want in your photos, if tradition is your thing - great, if not, you don’t always have to follow the ‘norm’. Make your wedding 100% you.

Unforgettable Photos

Carla was amazing to work with, kind, and blended in perfectly into our wedding. She was well priced, her photos are amazing, and our families look on at all the small details and moments she captured that brought joy to our faces when we weren't even thinking about it. Thank you Carla, you truly made our special day the most memorable it will ever be.

Carla was a recommendation but this was the best recommendation ever. From the moment we agreed to proceed with the booking she provided us with all that was need and more. She made our day more special than expected, she exceeded our expectation with her friendly, reliable, flexible, patient and professional approach.
Thank you so much Carla

If you’re looking for a natural photographer - look no further

Carla is very good at what she does. We’re not very good at having our photos taken and Carla was able to settle us and help us relax. We wanted a relaxed and informal reception and Carla made it so and worked really well with our guests! I’m so delighted with the result! Thank you very much Carla
