Shy, camera anxious couples look no further!

We are a shy couple who needed direction and Claudia knew exactly how to get the perfect shots. Her creativity shows through in the images she captures and she throws 100% of herself into the day - literally - if it means getting down to the ground to get the perfect angle, she will do it! She made us laugh so much during our photos we totally forgot that she was actually taking photos! Honestly look no further! Thank you again Claudia, you were incredible!

I could not have asked for a better photographer!

Claudia was incredible. She was accommodating, kind, and got on with all the guests. She captured so many things that we didn’t see and every time we look at the photos, we remember something new! I really could not have asked for a better photographer to take pictures at our wedding. Thank you so much!

Amazing photographer

Claudia was the perfect addition to our day, and we couldn’t be happier with the photographs we received! We wanted a more relaxed photographer so that the photos would have less of a posed feeling and Claudia definitely delivered! She was present throughout the day and helped create some gorgeous shots. I would recommend Claudia to anyone looking to get married in the area. In addition our photos were beautifully hand delivered in a commemorative box. Couldn’t ask for more!

Reliable, professional service capturing our special day perfectly.

Claudia provided an excellent service for our small wedding, being flexible and professional, we couldn't have wished for a better photographer! The selection of images was amazing and exceeded our expectations, capturing a mix of natural and posed shots. She put everyone at ease and worked extremely hard throughout the day. We are so happy with the photographs, we would recommend her to anyone for any occasion big or small. Thanks, Claudia so much!

Just fantastic

She was absolutely amazing! Getting everyone on both sides of the family involved, having a few photos with us in the Photo Booth, finding amazing places to have the photos and even helping us set up the chair sashes when she didn’t have to.
Her photos are amazing and we had everyone asking for her to be their wedding photographer so I will be passing on your details! Thanks again sooooo much. From Nicky and Daz

Great experience and would recommend

We had a great experience with Claudia, we met at convenient locations and times to discuss wedding requirements. She provided a bespoke service and payment was quick and easy. She was the nicest person on the day with all the going’s on and would happily use her services again. We were so so pleased with the photographs we received a mix of happy and formal ones for our wedding album. Really good quality and editing.

The photos made us cry with happiness!

From start to finish Claudia was fantastic! We met for coffee to discuss our day with her, she kept in touch with us right upto our wedding day. On the wedding day she made us feel so at ease, no cheesy posing just natural, how we like it! After the wedding she kept in touch with us on the progress of our photos and even sent us some sneak peeks!
Claudia hand delivered the album to us.
When we received our photos we had both our families round… my mom an I cried with happiness at the photos! Claudia had captured the day perfectly even getting photos of things we didn’t realise happened! We highly highly recommend!!
Thank you so much again xx

Brilliant photographer and lovely person

We really couldn't recommend Claudia higher for wedding photography. On the big day, she was incredibly efficient, knowledgeable and great fun to be around too!! The end result was beautiful photographs hand delivered in person by Claudia, and memories we will be able to look back on so happily. Considering how competitively priced our package was we really couldn't have found anything better even paying hell of a lot more, and so we wholeheartedly recommend Hello and Forever Photography for your special day!! thank you so much Claudia 🥰

Perfect in every way

Claudia was fantastic at our wedding in July. Not only did she listen to our requests and produce fantastic photos, she also went out of her way to support us after the wedding with albums, image choices etc.
On the day Claudia very much felt like one of the wedding party, putting guests at ease, producing the most beautiful natural photos. No requests were too, even checking on arrival of the groom and cake!
Thank you for capturing our special day in the most perfect way!

An absolute joy!

Claudia’s professional friendly approach made it a joy to her there for our wedding. She managed to capture parts of the evening that we wouldn’t have otherwise seen. Definitely recommend!

Meet the Team

Claudia Foulkes Foulkes
Claudia Foulkes Foulkes

Hi! My name is Claudia. I am a Female West Midlands based Wedding Photographer – Birmingham, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Wales, UK.

I love taking photos, I love weddings & I love my job. Photography to me has always been about capturing the story and emotion in each moment.. My shooting and editing style is candid… very relaxed, with a natural look, I try to stay invisible! I am camera shy and super awkward in front of it so I feel some couples pain and what they might be going though during couple wedding photo session. So I am happy to direct or distract you guys to get the relaxed and loving photos you will cherish forever.

I have been photographing for 10 years. I love nothing more than a surprise of what is hidden behind a next wedding. I studied photography at Coventry University which feels like a lifetime ago! My first camera was a Canon 500d and my first photos from it were far from perfection! My Camera collection is forever evolving! Its been a long and bumpy ride for me to get where I am now but I would not change it for a world.

I truly LOVE What I do!
