Full Description
Beautiful and artistic wedding photography for Oxfordshire and surrounding areas. Aimee is friendly and outgoing and understands that couples don't want endless posed photos; she therefore takes a small amount of formal family shots and Bride and Groom photos but then spends the remaining time photographing the couple and their guests enjoying the day! Details of the days, bridal preparations, speeches and the first dance are all captured and a second photographer can be provided. Photos are provided on a USB so the couple can make prints and albums, but these are also items Aimee can provide too.

you captured the day absolutely perfectly
Joe and I just want to express how much we love the photos; you captured the day absolutely perfectly and we have so many shots that we absolutely adore, and our family and friends love them too! You made us feel totally at ease and we look so happy in the posed shots and the candid ones. The day really was such a happy blur, and we're so glad to have so many beautifully photographed memories to keep. Thank you again!

amazing memories of our special day
We had a fantastic experience with Aimee as our photographer - she was warm, friendly and professional throughout. Guests have frequently commented on how impressed they were with her and of course the photos themselves are lovely! Aimee really understands how to position and compose shots to give us amazing memories of our special day. We'd really recommend her to others looking for a fantastic wedding photographer.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

There are so many! I think the ones with themes are particularly memorable... I've photographed 20's inspired wedding, a Wild West theme and one that was a mini music festival. As a huge festival lover, that last one was a particular favourite of mine!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Timeless, classic, romantic, fresh, exciting

What about your business are you most proud of?

producing images that my couple love and helping them to re-live their day through photographs.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

allow yourself plenty of time throughout the day... I always recommend a minimum of 1.5 hours after the ceremony to the meal (if you're in the same venue!) this gives time for photos and some mingle time. Have longer if you can, the day goes so fast, you'll appreciate that extra time to see your guests!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to meet with my couples before they book, so that we can both see if we're the right 'fit' for each other and so I can find out about their plans. After the meeting, if they book, I send through a contract and then I meet with them for a pre-wedding shoot about 6-8 weeks before the day. This gives me a chance to get to know them more and find out how much direction they need/want on the day - my couples regularly say that this helped them to relax on the day too! Between booking and the wedding, the couple are free to contact me as much as they feel they want!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Getting outside with a big golf umbrella! You can still enjoy your venue grounds in the rain and there are always beautiful doorways and arches to be photographed under!

Describe how you got into photography.

It's all my Dad's fault! He gave me my first film camera as a young teen and I've been hooked ever since.
