Delighted we chose Kirsty!

We genuinely can’t recommend Kirsty enough. Our whole day felt absolutely seamless having her photograph our special day. Her communication beforehand made us feel at ease. She has a unique skill where you don’t even know she’s there during the day whilst organising guests to ensure you get every shot you want. The cherry on top is the unbelievable pictures you receive at the end of it all. We’re almost tempted to have another wedding just so she can photograph it. Don’t think twice, she’s your wedding photographer.

the perfect photos from our wedding day

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Kirsty! The pictures from our wedding day are incredible and have given us a keepsake we will cherish forever. Kirsty was brilliant from start to finish, she was prompt at replying to all questions we had and made sure we were comfortable with all arrangements prior to the day making for stress free planning!

Kirsty and her team put us at ease on the day and made having our photographs taken a really enjoyable experience. She is incredibly professional and knows the reality of wanting perfect photos but also not being away from the guests all day. Kirsty was also incredibly helpful after the wedding when creating our album, giving us her professional and expert opinion to help pick the best pictures if we asked for her help, when there are literally hundreds of perfect shots to choose from.

We cannot recommend Kirsty enough and will definitely recommend her to any of our friends needing a photographer! thank you again!!

Amazing Photographer

We chose Kirsty for our wedding based off her fantastic online portfolio and the recommendation from our wedding co-ordinator at Ripley Castle and she did not disappoint. Kirsty took fantastic photos that captured our day, taking a mix of candid and staged photos allowing our choices but also advising us as required to get the best possible shots. We absolutely love the photos and Kirsty herself was fun to work with and helped take any pressure out of the situation on what can be quite a stressful day! We received a USB of all of our photos in a personalised box and we had a 1 on 1 session with Kirsty where she helped us design our photo book which was incredibly helpful. We would highly recommend Kirsty for any future weddings/events.

Professional, friendly and really takes the time to perfect the images for you. We honestly can't recommend Kirsty enough.

100% recommend Kirsty! My husband and I are over the moon with our amazing wedding photos.

Kirsty was an absolute delight, friendly, professional and approachable. Her natural take on capturing the day, meant that we have some incredible images of us and our guests having the best time. Memories we can cherish forever.

She was great at directing us for the couples photos, as well as organising guests for the group photos - which can be a headache because of the amount of people, but she handled perfectly and like the pro she is!

Thank you so much Kirsty!

An amazing photographer - I cannot recommend highly enough

Kirsty recently photographed our wedding at Low Osgoodby Grange on 20th May 2023. She was professional, personable, fun and an incredible photographer - I cannot recommend her highly enough!

We originally picked Kirsty based on her photographic style (of which is fantastic and speaks for itself) however it was also very important to us that we worked with someone that was relatable and truly wanted to understand us and our likes/dislikes. Following a short virtual meeting (where she clearly outlined the packages she offered and answered our initial questions) we knew that Kirsty was going to be the right person for us and had no hesitation in booking her for our wedding.

In the lead up to the wedding we were lucky to meet Kirsty in person (which further confirmed we’d made the right choice) and she took her time to talk us though the process and answer all of our questions (even if at times they seemed random – sorry Kirsty!).

It was a pleasure to have Kirsty with us on our wedding day – she was organised and efficient, and so it was easy to relax and spend as much time with our guests as possible. We were blown away with Kirsty’s awareness of the venue and lighting and as a result there are many incredible photos. We love that Kirsty’s style is to capture real moments and emotions, and she did this so well! We were largely unaware she was there.

A week after our wedding we were amazed to get an email from Kirsty to say our photos were ready and we could view/download them. The photos surpassed our expectations and it was so wonderful to look back through the day.

In summary, we are delighted we used Kirsty and we could not recommend her highly enough. Kirsty, thanks again and we wish you all the best for the future!

Best Wedding Photographer we could ask for!

Kirsty was the photographer at our wedding and we wholeheartedly recommend her.

Kirsty initially impressed us with her style of photography, ensuring emotions and true moments were captured.

On the run up to our wedding day, Kirsty kept in frequent contact with us and it was lovely to go to her studio in person and run through the order of the day, as well as key moments we wanted capturing. Kirsty also was really supportive and gave us invaluable advice for our wedding from her extensive experience.

Kirsty brought real enthusiasm and it was clear that she has a passion for her profession and we cannot thank her enough for everything she did on the day, she was amazing!

When we received our photographs, we were amazed with how incredible they were and looking through them was like living the day again. Kirsty truly captured the love, fun, and happiness throughout the day.

Thank you for such special photographs that we and our families will cherish forever.

Stunning pictures

We chose Kirsty as our wedding photographer because of her brilliant portfolio. She didn't disappoint - her pictures were stunning (and will be treasured by us for a lifetime). Our family and friends were really impressed, too. Kirsty was lovely to work with - and very professional. We had absolutely no issues communicating with her ahead of the day (and she even kindly moved our booking a couple of times due to Covid). We have since received a USB of our wedding pictures, which was presented in a personalised box (a lovely touch). If you're looking for a skilled photographer to capture your special day, we would definitely recommend Kirsty. Sophie and Joe

Amazing photographer

Kirsty is an amazing wedding photographer! She and her assistant captured our wedding day perfectly. We absolutely love the photographs. The candid shots really show the fun our guests had, and the personality of our day. Our couples shots are beautiful, and Kirsty was kind enough to stay later into the evening until it got dark enough to get some gorgeous shots utilising the outdoor lighting at the venue. Kirsty is professional and a pleasure to work with. She was flexible and understanding through the many times we had to rearrange the date, and always made sure to reply to our queries promptly. We would definitely recommend Kirsty to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
