From our initial intro call to all the beautiful photos - she made it so easy and so beautiful for us

She took the time to get to know us as individuals, as a couple, our vision for the big day and how we wanted our day reflected in our photos. She fully immersed herself in our day - getting ALL the important shots we wanted and more. We wanted soft tones and pops of colour and WOW did she deliver the most stunning photos. Lots of candid beauty but also those all important mantelpiece photos for the parents. She wasn’t afraid to jump fences or lay in the grass to get the perfect shot and she made sure to capture all those special moments you could never imagine being captured through a lens. Couldnt recommend Laura enough! ~ Georgie & Robbie, September 2023

Truly exceptional!

Laura is just sensational. She is more than just the perfect wedding photographer. She was a complete comfort for both my husband and I throughout the day; that reassuring and calming presence that makes you feel at ease from the first minute she arrives. Neither of us are keen on having our pictures taken, yet not once did we feel uncomfortable. The natural photos that make the colours of our day pop out of the screen capture perfectly how amazing our day was and we will be forever grateful that we were lucky enough to come across Laura to ensure that the digital memories of our day are as amazing as we could have ever hoped for. Thank you Laura🤍

Fantastic, highly recommended.

Absolutely amazing, cannot recommend Laura highly enough. She put us at ease from the very first meeting, being so friendly and genuinely excited for our wedding. We knew exactly what to expect ahead of the day. She kept us calm and focused before the ceremony, and we felt so relaxed with her. Laura took us to lots of fun locations in Brighton after the ceremony and made us laugh so hard our cheeks hurt. The photographs we received from Laura are better than we could have imagined, and will let us relive the day for years to come.
If you're looking for someone fun, friendly, calm, professional and with a great eye, you won't find anyone better.
Thank you Laura!

Simply amazing!

We can’t thank Laura enough for all her amazing work as photographer on our wedding day!
From our first meeting on zoom, to a coffee catch up to finalise all our plans and capturing every single moment of our day. Laura just got us, it was like talking to a friend about all our plans and this helped us to feel so relaxed on the day (neither of us being keen on having our picture taken!)
We are absolutely thrilled with all our pictures - thank you so much Laura!

Better than we could have ever imagined!

We hired Laura as the photographer for our Wedding back in October, and all I can say is wow!!!

When we were looking for our photographer, we first spoke to a few based on recommendations from our venue (Fitzleroi Barn). With Laura we felt like we just instantly gelled. She was fun and easy to talk to which was super important to us as she would be spending so much time with us on such an intimate day, and she was also really organised and always came back to our questions super quickly which helped us feel calm through the planning.

On the actual day, Laura was more than we could have imagined. She was there from the getting ready shots, up till quite late in the evening and she was always on the go. She got the group shots done super efficiently (which everyone was pleased about) and she made us feel super comfortable during our couples photos. All of our guests commented on how wonderful Laura was!

The resulting photos are absolutely beautiful, they exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier. We will cherish them forever

Absolutely Amazing

We hired Laura as our wedding photographer and it was the best choice we could have made. She produced the most amazing photos of our day which captured the atmosphere and joy perfectly. Laura not only gave us wonderful photos but she also was such a helpful and happy influence for the whole day.

Laura brought so much professionalism to her work, knowing the best places to go for photos, where the lighting worked best and what time to sneak off to capture the perfect sunset photos.

If you are still deciding on your photographer I would 100% recommend Laura!

Absolutely amazing!

Laura is absolutely amazing!
So talented and professional, she really is the best!
Nothing was too much trouble she’s open to suggestions and is on had to offer the best advice, getting married for the first time this was invaluable. Communicate was second to none again nothing was too much trouble, she was on hand to reply to emails and offer constant advice and reassurance.
We are so happy we found her, we were so not used to having our photos taken but Laura made it so easier and made us feel so comfortable. She has this amazing energy that puts everyone at ease. She works tirelessly to ensure you get all the photos you need and want without feeling like your spending you day having your photos taken. She has an amazing passion for the job that you can see so clearly.
All our guests commented on how brilliant she was on the day and how comfortable she made everyone feel.
The photos we received are absolutely amazing! We are so pleased with all the photos we are so lucky to have such wonderful moments to keep forever. She captured our day brilliantly and we cannot thank her enough.
Would throughly recommend! Do not hesitate to book Laura!

Better than we could have wished for!

We booked Laura as the photographer for our wedding and from the moment we booked, to the wedding day to receiving our pictures she was amazing. She was always timely in responding to emails and answering questions. When we met Laura we knew we had made a great choice as she instantly made us feel comfortable, we both are not the most confident in front of a camera but Laura made us feel at ease! The pictures are absolutely beautiful and Laura captured our day perfectly. We would not hesitate to recommend Laura for your special day!

Fantastic Photographer!

Laura was amazing start to finish. From putting us at ease via video call beforehand to keeping up with our hectic schedule to the big day, laughing with us the morning of getting ready, being a ninja during the ceremony and skillfully organising our group shots. The pictures blew us away especially our couple shots, it felt very natural and relaxed. Laura really captured the essence of our joy filled wedding day and night even staying later than planned once our second cultural ceremony got going! All our guests loved her by the end and so do we! She's more than just a photographer she's a wing woman for you both, making sure you enjoy your day and have the most amazing pictures after to remember it by! Love the special touch of the slideshow. Would recommend to everyone! - Katy and Mus

The Fairy Godmother of photography

Laura stepped in when we were let down suddenly less than two months before our vow renewal in October 21. The day we spoke to her the sun came out after a dismal few days of panic and anxiety. We can’t believe we struck it so lucky and that she was available!!
On the lead up to the day itself she was a trusted advisor and brought fun and laughter to our preparation chats. We were just sorry that they were online and not in the pub due to Covid.
From the moment she arrived on our special day she was amazing. From the preparation in the morning where she kept us all calm, to the event itself where she marshalled and cajoled us through the photos even though at times it was reminiscent of herding cats - which I am totally convinced she could also do with ease! She was a breath of fresh air. I hate having my photo taken and she made it a joy.
Her sole focus was on making our day special. Which she did in spades. The photos are amazing and have brought back memories of a golden day that will last forever in our memories. Laura captured so many images and those special moments we otherwise would have missed.
If you are looking for a photographer who will stay in your heart and make your day magical then Laura is your girl.
Laura - Andy and I were privileged to have had you as part of our day and will forever be grateful for that zoom call as you provided the magic that made the day sparkle.

Amazing photographer and so much more!

We cannot express highly enough how much we would recommend Laura as a wedding photographer!
Laura was excellent from the moment we first spoke to her, arranged a fun-filled couple's shoot and put us at total ease with her warm and bubbly personality. She was fantastic in the build up to the wedding, offering countless tips and essentially acting like the wedding planner we never had. On the day itself Laura went completely above and beyond – she settled everyone’s nerves with her great sense of humour and was so friendly that guests presumed she was a family friend by how comfortable she made everyone feel. Laura also made sure we got a chance for some relaxed couple time together away from the crowd. And most importantly, her photos are absolutely beautiful and capture the day perfectly!
Thank you Laura!

Absolute Hero, from photographer to potential friend.

It was an absolute privilege to have Laura photograph our wedding. From our first meeting to receiving our presentation box Laura has been absolutely fantastic.
We weren’t keen on super formal photography and Laura managed to capture the perfect mix of family photos and natural shots.
Laura was absolutely brilliant on the day, I absolutely hate being photographed but Laura really made it fun and relaxing with a bit of adventure chucked in for good measure. So many of our family and friends have commented on how natural and unobtrusive Laura was. For Seb and I, Laura just felt like another friend having as much fun as everyone else.
Everybody has commented on how much the photos mirror the day and every time we have looked through them we have smiled and laughed at the memories.
Laura you absolutely nailed it!
10/10 would use again.

Wonderful photos of a lovely day!

Laura has captured all the joy and fun we had in a very informal way. Staged group photos were kept to a minimum and so most of the pictures capture our guests in a relaxed, natural mood which was perfect. She then whisked us away to several more unusual locations for some very imaginative “Happy couple” pictures. Apart from the photography Laura was also on hand to give out advice, wisdom and support during the hours before the wedding helping to settle nerves and keep everyone smiling. It was like having another member of your family with you but without the additional drama! We couldn’t recommend her services highly enough. Thank you Laura.

Look no further!

Laura was absolutely amazing, we would definitely recommend her to anyone! On the day Laura wasn’t just a photographer, she gave us support, advice and encouragement and was generally on hand to help out wherever she could. We had loads of compliments from our guests about how lovely, friendly and professional she was. We were delighted with our photos, they were so beautiful, exactly what we were hoping for and more. Laura is a total pro, you definitely need her at your wedding!

Thanks again Laura we will be forever grateful. Hannah and Joe x

If you're thinking of booking Laura for your wedding - DO!

Laura was a dream to work with and made myself, my husband and all our guests feel relaxed and comfortable, feeling more like a friend than a photographer. When we had to postpone our wedding more than once (thank you COVID) Laura was understanding and supportive throughout which made a stressful situation so much easier.
Laura also gave us the best piece of advice to have a second photographer which meant we have amazing pictures for each of us to see those moments prior to the ceremony we each missed out on the day.
The pictures themselves are amazing and something we will treasure for years to come! Laura did research herself on locations and captured beautiful candid shots knowing the more relaxed feel we were looking for. The presentation box and slideshow were the perfect touch and made receiving our photos extra special.
I could not recommend Laura highly enough.
