Hi, I'm Charlotte.
Let’s face it: there’s nothing worse than investing your hard-earned money on a collection of awkward smiles and dull photographs you'll never look at. It's time we abolished this and got you photographs that will make you beam from ear to ear! I’m all about capturing the moment and every emotion behind it.
Trusting someone with the responsibility of your wedding day memories is a huge deal and it’s one that should never be taken lightly.
You’re hiring me to document the biggest day of your lives, so I’m going to do just that. A wedding day, for me, is always an endless conveyer of creative decisions. These happen from the minute I leave my little red car, 'til late at night when I crank the air conditioning up to keep me alert on my drive home. I’ll happily capture some formal wedding guest portraits for you, but I’m not the kind of photographer to spend a huge segment of your wedding day doing this. I’d far rather be spending my time looking out for the natural tears and laughter, instead of making everyone say the dreaded: cheese!”
If you hadn’t already guessed, I HATE fake smiles (and I'm assuming you do too if you've made it this far!). I’ll be focussing on the epic bits: capturing you and your guests naturally, chatting to you both whilst I set up ‘the’ shot and giving you ideas for poses that will feel natural and look natural too…No fake smiles allowed!
Your wedding day will last 24 incredible hours, but gorgeous photographs last forever.
Like the sound of that? Get in touch now and let's have a little natter over a mug of coffee...I can't wait to hear all about your wedding plans so far, how you both met and what TV show you're currently binge watching! Xx

How far in advance should I contact you?
I take bookings up to 3 years from today's date; get in touch and let’s have a natter!
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Absolutely not! This is why I’m able to offer unlimited coverage for your entire day.
Are you able to travel?
Absolutely! I LOVE travelling and will always be eager to explore new and wonderful places, whether it be nationwide or worldwide.
What is the charge for travelling?
I add a small calculated travel fee into the price so there are no hidden costs for your big day!
What style of photos do you take?
I’m all about relaxed, candid and documentary photography. It’s not all about “saying cheese” through gritted teeth; it’s about capturing the smitten smiles you give each other, the beaming grin of your auntie as she glugs a little more sherry and the rest of your guests throwing their heads back in mid-laughter as they enjoy celebrating with you!
Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?
I’m all about the natural photos! My approach is to get the perfect mix of photographs that beautifully reflect your relationship and the wedding day you’ve spend months on end planning! I love to capture all the smaller details, candid photographs of you both enjoying your day, your friends and family enjoying it with you and a few formal family and friend portraits too (where necessary). I tailor my photography style to adapt with the preferences of you and your fiancé.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
All Full-Day Wedding Photography packages include an online gallery (for sharing easily with family and friends) and a USB drive. Interested in a wedding album or canvas? I also have these available too and would happily send you a price list to take a look at!
What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
Wouldn’t it be great to see some of your gorgeous wedding memories just moments after the day itself? Yes, I thought so too! This is why I send you 10 sneak peak photographs just 48 hours after your wedding day. It’s the perfect time to begin sharing your newlywed excitement with family and friends. Your photographs will be sent to you 1-4 weeks after the wedding date (depending on the season).
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I'm a solo freelancer and I LOVE it!!!
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
I do indeed!
Do you charge per hour or per event?
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
My Full-Day package includes unlimited coverage for your entire wedding day; I’ll be capturing from the early preparations right through to the first dance and party!
What are the forms of payment?
Bank transfer is preferable.
Can we meet you before we hire you?
Of course! Finding your perfect wedding photographer is a hugeee deal! This is why I always like to meet up and have a coffee and chat initially. We can see how we get along, drink lots of tea (how very British!) and get nattering all about your wedding day! I’m not just around to click a button and take photographs; my role is to capture the emotion of your wedding day, be a friendly face to put any nerves at ease and try my hardest to make you both laugh your socks off in the process (although I’ll most likely spend the whole time laughing at my unfunny jokes!)
How much is your booking fee?
I take a 20% retainer fee (a fancy way of saying ‘booking fee’) which will secure me as your wedding photographer for the big day. The remaining 80% balance is due up to 7 days before your wedding date and can be paid either as one lump sum or in instalments.
Do you provide wedding albums?
Yes! The display of wedding photographs is just as important as the photographs themselves. The option to purchase wedding albums, canvases and prints is always available. There are also wedding packages available, which allow you to save lots and receive even more. Please contact me for more details and a price list.
What's your booking process?
It’s always the biggest honour when a couple decides to book me to capture their special day! Being a hopeless romantic myself, I cannot wait to hear all about you both and the wedding day you’re busy planning. Typically, I like to arrange a coffee (or tea) and a chat in a convenient place for you both. If you decide to book the complimentary engagement / couples photoshoot with me also…excellent news! We can book in a date when we first meet for coffee. You’re going to see me a lot before your wedding day, but I find this incredibly important. I like to build a good friendship with all of my couples, as it really shows in the overall photographs. You should feel relaxed, like I’m a close friend who also happens to be your wedding photographer. It should never be that you’re meeting your photographer for the first time in the early hours of your wedding day morning!
Are the photographs edited?
Yes! I spend time carefully editing every photograph myself, getting the moments to look even more stunning than they did in reality!
