Using Sam was the best decision we made for our wedding day.
From start to finish her professionalism and great communication made the process of booking her for our wedding, to the whole day itself stress free.
On the day Sam was amazing. As soon as she arrived for the stressful bridal prep with my bridal party her warmth relaxed the room and every single member of my party commented on how funny, relaxed and enjoyable she made our morning.
Through out the day she was just perfect. She took control of the group photos so all photos were shot stress free without having to go find family members every other shot!
That way our guests were able to enjoy our reception drinks whilst rob and I had our portrait photos. With these, Sam made sure she got exactly the photos we'd envisioned.
Through out the rest of the day she was just brilliant and this was relayed back to us by so many of our guests. Sam even took the time to speak to an anxious family member which I can't thank her enough for.
She didn't leave until well into the evening party and captured some amazing dance floor shots.
The photos there-selves are just priceless, we couldn't of asked for anything else.
After meeting Sam prior to booking to discuss what we'd like, she got everything perfect.
I wanted lots of candid shots of our day to really capture everyone's emotions and boy did she did deliver!
Looking through our photos you can see how much attention she pays to the guests and our interactions as all of our of special candid photos are of our really close family and friends, without any discussion from us.
When the photo book and box with our prints and usb arrived I was blown away by the extra effort put into the packaging and little special touches.
Sam was perfect start to finish and I can not recommend her enough. Thank you Sam for making our day so special and capturing moments we can cherish forever.
When we first met Sam, we instantly felt connected and could easily tell that she has a huge passion for her work. Seeing her beautiful portfolio of work we knew that she could capture our day in the relaxed but gorgeous way we wanted and we were not disappointed.
On the actual day Sam was a lovely presence, she put myself and my camera shy wife at ease, and treated us like royalty! The images we got back were absolutely perfect and everyone we’ve shown them to has agreed that Sam did an outstanding job.
Thank you so much Sam for capturing our special day so beautifully xx

How far in advance should I contact you?
I am offering a smaller wedding package this year and next due to the current Government restrictions on weddings.. my Mini Wedding / Elopement Package. Please enquire for details and my availability.
I have just 3 full day packages (Platinum & Gold Packages) remaining for 2021 as I never take on more than 35 full day coverage weddings a year, I feel that with the main work load being the editing, I devote a lot of time to each wedding. Attempting anymore than 35 would mean I would be taking time away from each wedding as a whole, over the season... please contact me as soon as possible to enquire on your date to avoid disappointment.
My 2022 diary is now open and popular dates - such as April half term are now being booked up, obviously more popular weekend dates in the summer and children's half term holidays have started to fill up first. Please contact me as soon as you can to enquire on a date or just to chat about how I would approach your big day!
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Never, my mind is on your day only....
Are you able to travel?
I travel nationally and internationally for weddings, please contact me and a bespoke quote can be worked out for you.
What is the charge for travelling?
Currently I am charging 30p a mile extra however for venue's as far as Scotland my extra costs such as a hotel have to be worked into a package. Please contact me for a bespoke quotation.
What style of photos do you take?
Romantic & classic, a good mix of reportage and traditional. I focus on details, I'm a big fan of free-lensing arty close ups and dreamy couple portraits...mixing in black and white images where appropriate.
What kind of technology do you use?
Nikon, Photoshop, Lightroom
Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?
My style leans towards art portraiture, a mix of romantic traditional and the more stylised free-lensed images, which gives an atmospheric and natural quality to my work.
What kind of equipment do you use?
Nikon and Nikkor lenses
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
Yes, 12 month free access to a private password protected online gallery, ideal for sharing images or ordering additional prints, enlargements and photo-books.
What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
12-14 weeks at peak times
Do you send all the photos taken?
No, I usually take up to 1600 images on a full day wedding.. the best are kept and edited, I usually supply 450-500 images from a full days coverage. Quality over quantity - anyone can offer 1000 images but are the ALL quality images or just repeats of the same image?....
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
If a second photographer is requested I have a fabulous 'go to girl' who matches my own style perfectly (at an extra fee of course)
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
Yes, I also belong to The Guild of Photographers who are amazing - instant help for any photographer attempting to find last minute help.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
The copyright to my clients images are for my clients, I request that I use some of the material for my own portfolio and or advertising which my client must agree to and sign regarding this in my contract. Of course if my client doesn't want me to use them, I won't and this is recorded in my contract.
