About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2020

Last update: April 2024

My name is Holly Thompson, I鈥檓 based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, and I work with couples who want their individuality, natural beauty and most treasured moments documented stylishly, without fuss or formality.

While I focus on capturing beautiful candids, and collating the moments you don't always get to see during the day, I execute the formals, group shots and key moments (walking down the aisle, first looks, ceremony, first kiss etc.) flawlessly.

You can expect to see me shooting continually, working hard to make sure your family and friends are comfortable around me and that you feel like complete rock stars throughout. Many of you will have experienced photographers with egos and I can assure you I'm not one of them.

My prices reflect the skill, experience and style I've perfected for over 8 years in the business and while my fixed packages can be viewed on my website, I mainly work with my couples on bespoke quotes that reflect their day, based on timings and services required.

I have 100% 5-star reviews on google, Facebook and hitched, but if you'd like personal testimonials that my couples have sent over the years, I can send this over too.

So please contact me initially with your wedding date, and we can arrange a free consultation to discuss your big day.

In the event I'm not available on your date I'm happy to recommend other suppliers who might be able to help.

I look forward to hearing from you soon,

Holly

The Best Photographer in the world!

Holly was one of the best parts of our day. We couldn鈥檛 recommend her enough. She made not just us but everyone at our wedding feel so comfortable and really captured the joy of our special day. She is so talented it鈥檚 hard to put into words but most of all she is a genuinely lovely person with so much passion for what she does. We really hit the jackpot with Holly!

It felt like she was one of our friends!

We truly could not have asked for a better photographer than Holly! She was just full of brilliant ideas all day, and the process of taking photos was so fun and relaxed (which was important to us as my husband and I are pretty camera-shy normally). Looking through our previews, she really captured some spectacular, emotive, important moments - and working with her was an absolute dream, as I say in the title she really felt like she became one of our friends! We wholeheartedly, 100% recommend working with her!

Absolutely favourite supplier!!

Holly was absolutely fantastic! She was the very first supplier we booked 2.5 years ago, since then she has gone above and beyond the call of duty! Nothing was too much to ask of her. Her ability to capture the candid moments during the whole wedding day was unbelievable. She captured the most special moments that we cherish forever. An absolute must book for your wedding!!

Holly was amazing from start to finish. Her presence never felt like we were having to pose constantly for the right photo. She was so friendly and made us so relaxed all day while clicking away capturing amazing memories. Our photos are of excellent quality and we can鈥檛 recommend her enough for your special day.

Amazing experience.

I would highly recommend Holly from Flash Forward Photography.
We have booked her for our wedding next year.
We had our Engagement Shoot with her at the weekend and our photographs are lush.

Holly is professional, friendly and helpful. She really makes you feel relaxed and you almost forget you are having your photograph taken.

I cannot wait for our wedding now.

Absolutely Fantastic, Look no further than this incredible Photographer

From the moment we first messaged Holly through Hitched, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She replied quickly and was very flexible to create the package that suited us best.

when we first met Holly on our engagement photoshoot she instantly put us at ease having a laugh with us and creating some stunning shots which also included our beloved pooch.

Her communication was second to none, we knew what was happening and when without having to follow up with her before the big day. On our wedding day she did more than your regular photographer, from getting high chairs for the babies through to finding my flat shoes to help get me out of those painful high heels. She couldn't do enough for us and we couldn't recommend her any more. You should look no further, book her now!

Not just a photographer

Words can鈥檛 describe how amazing holly was for us. She was so much more than just a photographer. Having booked Holly over a year ago 10 weeks before the wedding I sent her an email just updating her on things and within two minutes she had called me and I was talking things through with her. Holly was always there when ever we needed her. Even when she was on a weekend away she got back to us almost instantly.
On the day of the wedding she was amazing, always there to look after your phone and house keys during the ceremony and then blending in with guests at the reception. It honestly felt like she was a guest at our wedding, not a vendor.
All our family and friends have also commented at how great she is!

Wow the photos are incredible, and the turnaround and quality is amazing.
What I also really like is that I can still message her with questions and I don鈥檛 feel that now the wedding is over I have to loose contact!
I want to book her for every party from now on!

I 1000% would recommend

Amazing wedding photographer!

We hired Holly for our last minute lockdown wedding and we are so glad we did. From the beginning she was really happy to talk about what we wanted. I would really recommend having an engagement/pre-wedding shoot as this helped us to relax and get used to having our photo taken. We are really happy with the photos of our wedding!

Our experience was absolutely amazing

Holly absolutely made our day. She was so friendly and funny, we aren't a fan of photos but she made it really fun. She did everything we asked her to do and got a preview of the pictures back very quickly. I can't wait to see more of our gorgeous photos from her and really can't recommend her highly enough to anyone

The best wedding photographer around, hands down.

10/10 communication, reliability, punctuality, more than reasonably priced, will do anything for anyone, not to mention the quality of your wedding photos. From start to finish, Holly makes your feel nothing less than perfect. She goes over and beyond for you both as a couple and we have without a doubt, enjoyed getting to know Holly throughout. She is really likeable, approachable, humorous, witty and had such a kind heart. We adored Holly as a photographer and would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone who is really down to earth.
As a couple, we鈥檇 love to see Holly strive and be noticed out there for the hard work she really does.
Every time we look at the photos and videos, it takes us right back. Would give anything to do the day all over again. Thank you Holly for making the day perfect (making me believe I looked perfect)!
DO NOT HESITATE, BOOK HER TODAY!

Amazing Wedding Photographer

Holly was absolutely amazing on our wedding day and in the lead up. We enjoyed meeting her at our venue a few weeks before and she instantly made us feel at ease. This meant that on the wedding day, we felt like we knew her well and felt a lot less awkward in front of the camera as we thought we might have done. She has a great sense of humour and captured all the special moments of our day without it feeling staged. We received a preview of photos straight after the wedding and the full set of photos came back to us quickly. We would 100% recommend Flash Forward Photography! 馃槉

Amazing, Amazing, AMAZING!

What an absolute delight it was to meet Holly, and for her to be the photographer for our wedding. I could not recommend her enough. She has captured some amazing moments from our day, her professionalism skills and attention to detail were not just appreciated by us, but were also highly rated from our guests. Thank you again so much!
