The best photographer we could have asked for. Personal and professional

Petrina was so friendly and professional from the first moment we met. She took time with us to make sure she understood us as a couple which make us feel so at ease. We planned the whole day with Petrina and she guided us through. We're so thrilled with our photos they captured our day so beautifully.

Petrina did a wonderful job in capturing our special day. My husband and I aren鈥檛 very photogenic people but Petrina鈥檚 friendly and approachable demeanour made us feel at ease throughout the session. Thank you for capturing our special day and the beautiful pictures. Your talent shines through every photography. Now we have these photos we can cherish them forever.

A truly joyful wedding photographer

From the planning stage to our big day, Petrina was an absolute joy to work with. She made the whole process a breeze and helped us get our creative vision onto paper. Petrina has a great personality and a keen eye for detail, a very punctual person who helped our intimate wedding come to life. Though Petrina was always in the background capturing so many amazing candid photos, by the end of the wedding she felt like a family member joining in with the celebrations.

Excellent photographer goes above and beyond

We booked the Intimate package for our registry office wedding. Petrina also came to do a quick preparation shoot at the hotel before hand, due to weather, we ended up visiting a park and back to the hotel after. So pleased, especially with the extra still life shots etc too!

An absolute joy to work with & we love the finished photos!

From start to finish, Trina has been amazing. All her communications have been super clear and concise and we've known exactly what to expect and when. Trina took time out to really get to know us both, what we like, don't like etc and really put us at ease right from the start - my two young daughters loved her as well.
At the pre-wedding shoot and on the day we had such a laugh with her and her colleague - it was like just having a pair of old friends snapping pictures of us. They were never demanding and took every picture we wanted and hundreds more besides. The finished photos are just beautiful and we will treasure them forever. I would highly recommend Trina and her team to anyone in need of a photographer.

Amazing pre-wedding shoot

Ahead of our wedding, we had a pre-wedding shoot with Trina. I was very nervous about how our wedding photos would turn out as I'm not usually comfortable having my photo taken but the pre-wedding shoot has completely put me at ease! Trina is so friendly and warm that we quickly became more comfortable in front of the camera and ended up with some wonderful pre-wedding photos. It was actually a fun experience. I feel so relieved and just know our wedding photos will turn out great now! Thank you, Trina!

Fantastic photographer - natural, calm, wonderful nature

Trina was a fantastic photographer. We loved her style that fitted beautifully with our wedding - loads of natural, outdoor photographs that captured those moments that make you remember the day. She was such a joy to have with us on the day - blending into the background, nudging us for group shots but never over bearing or in the way. Many of our guests commented on how lovely she was. Our photographs are beautiful and I can't recommend Trina enough!

Fantastic Wedding Photography!

Trina was fantastic from the beginning - she responded to my enquiry very quickly and we spoke on the telephone the next day. I knew straight away from our conversation I would like to have her do our photography she was so enthusiastic and understanding to the needs of our day. On the day it was like meeting an old friend she was so friendly and quickly put us all at ease. She sent over our wedding gallery much quicker than expected and we are thrilled with the photos we cannot thank her enough!馃挄馃挄

Petrina is outstanding!

Petrina was absolutely outstanding, amazing, wonderful, there aren't enough words! For a bride and groom that hate having photos taken (while sober), Petrina was incredible and helped relax us a lot. We've had our engagement shoot and taster pics back and they are beautiful! Can't wait for the full album and we cannot recommend her highly enough!!

Beautiful photos and a wonderful day with Petrina

Petrina was absolutely wonderful from the start. She was so kind to us in helping us arrange for her to photograph our wedding after we had to postpone due to Covid, and on the day Petrina was so relaxed and considerate with us that it was just like having one of our friends taking our photos, even though we hadn't met before the wedding! We've just received our taster gallery and the photos are absolutely beautiful, beyond what we could have imagined, capturing such lovely details like our tears in the ceremony and fleeting expressions! I can't recommend Petrina highly enough - she's been completely brilliant and I'm so glad she could be our wedding photographer.
