Simply the best

We met Karen at a wedding fair and knew as soon as we met her and saw her amazing work, she was the person we wanted to photograph our special day. We booked her and covid hit, 3 dates later, Karen stuck with us and we finally got married in August.
Wow, we are completely and utterly blown away by our amazing photographs. We couldn’t be happy with our amazing memories Karen has captured. We cannot recommend Karen enough.

Relaxed, professional, perfect!

Karen took our wedding photos and I was blown away! It was exactly what I had imagined and I am so glad she could be part of our perfect day! I was so relaxed knowing we would have stunning shots that were taken so beautifully.

Simply the most perfect day captured in pictures

Karen photographed our wedding on 2nd August 2019. I first met Karen at a wedding fair, and she stood out from the rest. I booked her on that day, and trust me I never looked back. My now husband, Sam, clearly trusted me and Karen was brilliant. She listened to everything we wanted and she is the most friendly photographer I have ever used/spoken too. We got all our photos after 6 weeks and they are all beautiful. We’ve shown our families and they all say the same thing. Karen seems to hide in the most perfect places to capture everything. We will, for sure use Karen for everything we need. Once again, thank you so much xx

Our wedding

Hi Karen!

We have had time to digest all the wonderful shots of our day and they are truly breathtaking.

We were all astonished at the emotion and feeling that shines through every shot. Our collection of both colour and black and white photos really are outstanding,

We cannot thank you enough and we hope you enjoyed capturing the day.

Your story has helped us remember those small details that could have easily been forgotten.

Thank you Karen, we wouldn’t have changed anything, and would highly recommend you to anyone looking for an experienced friendly photographer.

I found Parkwin photography on hitched and we could not be happier with the service we had from Karen. Karen is extremely talented, hard working and reliable. Not only is she a fantastic photographer but a wonderful person. From the moment we met Karen we knew she was the photographer we wanted. Karen helped put us at ease throughout and during the pre-wedding shoot she gave us useful tips for the actual wedding day. She gave us plenty of time to talk through the plan for the whole day and what photos we wanted to have taken. Not being massive fans of being photographed Karen managed to make us feel relaxed in front of the camera and she captured our day perfectly, even managing to get some brilliant shots of us in the rain! We have so many beautiful photographs from Karen to help remind us of our day and we can't thank her enough. We had lots of comments from our guests about how lovely Karen was and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Down Hall Wedding 25th March 2016

Karen was our photography for our wedding day at Down Hall and she was amazing. Right from the very first meeting we felt like she got us as a couple and understood how we wanted our photos to look and WOW they were so much more than we could ever had wished for. Karen captured our wedding perfectly reminding us of all our wonderful memories from our special day. Karen is friendly, professional and passionate about her work she is incredible talented and we felt so comfortable in front of her camera. We would highly recommend Parkwin Photography to any couple who want to treasure their wedding pictures. Mr and Mrs Francis

Karen is amazing!

Karen photographed our May wedding at Tewin Bury Farm, and I really cannot sing her praises enough. I spoke to a number of photographers in the preperation for our wedding and it was by chance that I met Karen at a wedding fayre when I was just about to go with another supplier. She has such a lovely way about her and I instantly felt at ease. As soon as I saw a sample of her photos I knew I had to book her. My other half was much more reluctant about the photography as he did not want it to "take over the whole day". We met Karen for a pre-wedding shoot about 6 weeks before the wedding, as reluctant as he was he couldn't help but admit that she was wonderful. Having been completely chilled out in the run up to the wedding I suddenly turned into a nervous wreck on the day, but Karen was a complete superstar and really helped to make me feel comfortable. She got the photos we wanted but in a way that made it feel chilled out and relaxed. I received our photos a few days ago; the end results were fantastic and have brought back all the wonderful memories we felt from the day. I think the best thing about Karen is not only is she a super talented photographer, she understands that each bride and groom are different and she photographs to suit the couple. Plus she is a lovely lady who I can honestly say it was a pleasure to meet. I cannot recommend her enough!

Wonderful addition to our wedding

I can not recommend Karen enough! Right from our first meeting, through the pre wedding shoot and on the day itself she immediately made us feel at ease and was wonderful with her advice, help and of course her beautiful photos. Her presence never felt intrusive and she somehow managed to capture all the important moments as well as the little details. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others and have in fact done so already to all budding brides we know!

Winter wedding at Fanhams Hall

We are absolutely over the moon with our wedding photos, they are everything we wanted them to be: intimate, beautifully composed and every detail captured.
We have had so many lovely comments about the photos, about how natural they look and how well they captured the day. Our guests have also all said that they thought Karen was so nice and also really unobtrusive as well, the most common thing we hear people say is "oh wow, when was that photo taken I didn't even realise she was there!!".
It's so important to feel comfortable with your wedding photographer (you spend so much time with them!) and we enjoyed Karen's company so much on the day. She was brilliant at my parent's house in the morning, so friendly and made everyone feel so comfortable. One of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning :)

Vasanthi and Gavin

From our first meeting through to the presentation of our album the level of service we received from Parkwin Photography was outstanding. Karen went out of her way to familiarise us with the choices available to us at our first meeting and then met us again at the venue and for the rehearsal. On the day she arrived early and brought extra cover in the form of her husband Mark to ensure that all angles were covered. As well as the many shots of the key moments in the day Karen also captured the magnificence of the venue on film. Pictures were presented on DVD so that we could make our own selection for the album - with Karen in the background to provide words of advice where necessary. The result? A carefully crafted album which takes us back to our special day every time we walk through the pages. Thank you Parkwin.

Karen photographed our wedding this summer at Shenley Cricket Centre. We have nothing but positive things to say - in the run up to the wedding she was very approachable, accommodating to our wishes and made us feel very at ease. On the day itself she got on with everyone and worked like mad all day capturing every moment. She stayed until later than we expected, just making sure she covered every moment. And of course... the photos are beautiful, with so many funny things we would have missed or not remembered had she not been there. We cannot recommend her enough.

Amazing photographs!!

Thank you Karen for capturing our day so perfectly. The photos were amazing and really told the story of our day. You gave us such a professional but personal service right from the start, which made us feel so at ease with you on the big day. We have had so many comments on how wonderful the photos are and found it very difficult to choose our favourites for the album.

Thanks again for all your lovely work and we will definately be recommending you to our friends and family.

Debbie and James xx

They made me cry with happiness!

Hi Karen
These are absolutely fantastic and we are so pleased. They made me cry with happiness!
I hope you don’t mind but I have passed your details on to my mum who is getting married as you were so fantastic.

Loretta and I just wanted to thank you for being our photographer; you were so patient, relaxing and we didn’t even know you were taking photos most of the time which has given us the natural photos that we wanted!
Thank you again,
Penny and Loretta
