Couldn’t be happier!

It didn’t take more than a second to know that Jan was the photographer for us, just look at her work on her website! We, of course, had the obligatory posed photos to appease the Mum’s, but Jan’s skill lies in the documentary style that we wanted for our later in life casual wedding. She has honestly captured personalities and treasured moments that would never have come across with a more traditional approach. She worked like a little worker bee to produce pictures that captured the look and feel we were going for. Filter out the ones with the extra chins and me looking like I’m chewing a toffee, and this woman has made us and our guests look beautiful. She’s really nice, too! Thanks, Jan. You were a star 😄x

The photographer we were looking for

From our first meeting to our last hug after our first dance, Jan was everything we wanted and more. For 2 women who hated their photo being taken, we met Jan for a photo shoot and got to see very quickly that we had nothing to worry about, she put us at ease in front of the camera.
Every step of the way Jan was there and quality of her photos are incredible. Having searched far and wide for ‘the photographer’ we were looking for, we found!

We can’t thank Jan enough for how she shot our day, we were very lucky to have found someone who just got it and got us. There was never any pressure for photo after photo, she very much wanted us to share the day with our nearest and dearest and captured some fantastic shots along the way.

Thank you Jan for capturing the wedding of our dreams, and doing it in style! We are eternally grateful.

Super friendly and professional service

Jan was really engaged from our very first meeting and put our minds at ease that she could provide exactly the package we were looking for. Although neither of us are keen to have our photo taken, she made us relax in her company and allowed us to get some really lovely natural looking wedding photos.
Jan was able to accommodate our wish for a half-day package without compromising the range of pictures we were after. She was efficient at getting both the formal shots, plus some of us alone, whilst also giving us plenty of time to spend with our guests,

Just a dream photographer!

Jan put us at ease from the very first phone call, which as 2 people who don’t like having photos taken was really essential! She listened to exactly the type of photos we were looking for (relaxed and informal), and on the day she stayed calm and jovial despite torrential rain and fussy relatives! Everyone commented on how great Jan was and she even helped us give out the gifts during the speeches. We’d recommend her over and over again. Thank you!

If I could give more than 5 starts I would.

Booking Janet as our photographer was the best choice we made. From meeting her and discussing our day and emailing back and forth she was so professional and so passionate. On the day of our wedding Janet put us at ease as we are not very good comfortable in front of cameras. She really captured our day and the photos we have received back are a million times better than we expected and all so natural. We will cherish our photos forever. Thank you so much Janet 💓

Would recommend to anybody ❤️

Wow what can we say… a massive THANK YOU to Jan for capturing our day. She made us feel so at ease from the moment we met her. For us, taking pictures is an awkward time but Jan settled our nerves and allowed us to capture the most natural and beautiful photos of our day. We had our wedding photos back so quickly - Thank you so so much! Would recommend to anybody 😊

Mrs G Walters

Jan was recommended to me by my mum's friend and I'm so glad I found her. We were on a budget for my wedding so I wanted a photographer purely for the ceremony only and Jan had no problem catering for what we wanted.
Communication from Jan was 100% and we had regular contact throughout the year right up until my big day.
My wedding pictures arrived a few days later via post however I could view them on Jan's website prior to this.
My wedding pictures are absolutely amazing, every single picture is stunning and flawless and I'm so grateful to Jan for capturing our special day. Thank you so much xx

Janet was amazing and so organised, from the very start she had already planned the approach and between us agreed the approach we wanted to take.

The pictures are amazing and I would definitely recommend her services
