  • "Jacqui’s approach and images stood a mile above others."
    Leon - Wedding September 2018 on 16 October 2018

    I had a clear vision of what I wanted for our wedding pictures - natural, effortlessly elegant memories, full of life, vibrancy and humour. I searched through many photographers and, through a recommendation from a photographer friend, Jacqui’s approach and images stood a mile above others. After discussing and guiding us through what would work best on the day, she worked tirelessly, schlepping from one location to another (seemingly giving the impression of having a photographer with both bride and groom on the day). Though discreet, she managed to capture the warmth and happiness from friends and family throughout the day with dazzling results. Just as importantly, she’s a lovely person to have on side. Her calm, reassuring presence had us instantly at ease when I’d have otherwise been fraught with anxiety or nerves. Needless to say, the results are superb - bringing the day back to us vividly and leaving us with beautiful images that will be treasured long after our memories fail us. I couldn’t recommend highly enough.

  • "Jacqui is there for you to remember those minutes for ever"
    Morgane GRASSIGNY on 5 October 2018

    While researching wedding photographers from Paris, where we live, we discovered Jacqui's photos of Alice & Stu's wedding by chance and we knew. We knew it would have to be Jacqui. From that very first contact to the end of our wedding day, it only got better. Jacqui is very professional, she organized our first call during her holiday (!), made us feel very comfortable, managed a fun photoshoot in Brighton, then shot our civil wedding in Paris and our ceremony & party in the UK a month later. Every photo is ab-so-lu-te-ly perfect. If you think about what you'd like from your photographer on your wedding day : 1) beautiful, moving and flawless photos: no doubt that Jacqui's are, trust us, 2) to feel at ease and relaxed: the intimate moments spent with Jacqui during the day, just the three of us, afar from the buzz of the party, are amongst our favourite memories, those quiet moments when you realize you're married - and Jacqui is there for you to remember those minutes for ever, 3) your guests to have nice memories too: our families and friends loved Jacqui, and were very moved to discovered beautiful natural photos of them too. Jacqui, and Andy as second photographer, did an absolutely amazing job and we cannot wait to organize another big enough event to have them come over to France again! Thank you so much.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do You work

I'm with you from about 2 hours before the ceremony to cover getting ready, people arriving and the lead up the ceremony. A little bit of time in the reception is put aside for any group shots ( kept to a minimum). Mainly I am shooting candid shots of you and all the guests. I will also take about 20 -30 minutes for some shots of you two. This is often broken up into two time slots. In the summer the light can be quite harsh in the daytime so us photographers love to wait till the evening to capture some magical portraits of you two. A lot of my favourite images on my gallery are from that time. I am a bit fanatical about the golden hour! Aside from that I am there to capture the speeches, guests having a brilliant time and as many candid, fun and cool shots of you guys as possible. I am always looking for the next picture that will mean something now and when you look back on it 10 years later. I am on the dance floor right into the evening after your first dance. I am with you for about 10 hours, For most of that time you won't even notice me except for the bit where I come and find you and say, ohmygod the light is amazing, come with me for 5 minutes! : )

Tell us more about you

I have worked as a photographer for over 20 years and photographed around 800 weddings. I'm naturally nosey so watching people (with or without the camera) is just heaven for me. My clients tell me I help them keep calm at the start of the wedding when the nerves are kicking in. My family find this hilarious, apparently I'm more calm at work than I am at home. I'm an Irish girl living in the UK and love to travel. I have photographed weddings all over the UK, the US and Europe. 2018 involves some fab travel to Ireland, Italy and France. My style is relaxed and informal with an eye for fine details and a view to creating strong and vibrant images. My job is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and I feel the images you see here on the site show you that I’m pretty good at that!!

Are you insured and do you have backup equipment?

Yes and yes, I am insured for more than I will ever be worth in my whole life! I have full insurance and if your venue needs to see my documents ( they sometimes do ) just let me know. I have backups of everything. I have 3 cameras with me and am usually shooting on two. I usually have 4-5 lenses with me. While I am actually shooting I am backing up from one memory card onto another in camera. All images are backed up as soon as I get home too.

Do we meet in person to chat more about our wedding?

Where possible yes. If not then we can Skype or chat on the phone. I'm available to answer any questions you might have.

Do you shoot small weddings?

I shoot all size weddings, & love small mid week weddings so get in touch for pricing
