Full Description
My love affair with photography started when I was very young, my parents had a box full of old family photos. These curling, treasured images held memories. Some were taken by my grandad on his old Brownie. They showed me people and places that I’d never know or would never meet again. And every now and then, I'd escape to be with these people and step right into the past. That’s what makes photography so special, it’s a way of creating memories that you’ll have for the rest of your life. Memories are precious, special moments that slip through our hands all too easily. Being able to capture them before they’re lost is why I’m a photographer. If I put my super practical hat on I can easily provide you with a list of the skills that led me to photography. In C.V. speak; I’m a highly motivated individual who’s happy working with others as I am alone. But as I’m a photographer, I don't have to do that any more. So, instead I’ll say that I’m, quite simply, a people person. I'm very interested in people. I'm also highly visual, always ‘looking’. Taking in what’s around me from surroundings to emotions and little details. It’s fair to say that not much escapes my eye! I wholeheartedly believe that celebrating family and love is one of the best things in life. Being part of these occasions could never be considered work, I’ve found my passion and believe it’s my true vocation. My photographic style reflects my personality; artistic and romantic. Being a huge fan of the great outdoors, I love to work with nature and the seasons, featuring carpets of bluebells and summer meadows as backdrops to my work. I've been lucky enough to enjoy this vocation for several years, you are in safe hands. I am a full time wedding photographer, shooting over 300 weddings during this time. And I'm very proud to be a preferred supplier at these local venues: De Vere Wokefield Estate, Ufton Court, Newbury racecourse, Donnington Valley hotel.

Best decision I made
Booking Annabel for our wedding was the best decision i made for our wedding! i had been looking at Annabel's work online for a while online and absolutely loved it. After a lot of procrastinating i finally email Annabel, we had a call a few days later and i knew it was the right decision. Annabel is very passionate about her job and that really shows. On the day Annabel capture so many lovely moments that i missed, She must of knew they were special moments without being told. Annabel made us feel very relaxed throughout and we were able to have fun and enjoy our moment while having our wedding photos taken.

What can we say!
Annabel, What can we say? You are so talented and we are absolutely in love with your photographs!! We adored reliving our day, it was so special to us!

Thank you so much again, I can't wait to share these with our friends and family that couldn't be there! Best wishes The Osmonds!! Xx

Highly recommended!
Annabel has been very friendly and approachable from the moment we got in contact with her. After hours and hours of searching for the right photographer her pictures spoke for themselves when we saw how beautiful they were and how well edited. We were in consistent communication with her from the moment we began contact and appreciated her joining us at our wedding venue in advance of our special day to find the best spots to take pictures at. The checklist she runs through is very thorough which ensures all of the requested pictures are clearly documented to make sure you get all you want from your wedding day. Annabel was great on the day, making people feel at ease whilst showing her clear professionalism and ability at co-ordinating the best shots. She’s been great fun getting to know in the process and we have enjoyed the run up whilst getting things organised knowing our photography was in safe hands. Our pictures came in good time and we have thoroughly enjoyed looking through them. Additionally my best friend got married earlier in the year and we both independently picked Annabel as our photographer - great minds think alike! It’s been lovely to see that the quality of pictures are so consistent through her portfolio and I would definitely recommend her! Thank you to Annabel and Sarah, the second shooter for making sure we have beautiful reminders of our wedding day for the rest of our lives

We can't thank you enough
We used Annabel as our wedding photographer last August at Ufton Court and we have got the most beautiful treasured memories. Annabel gave us so much support and advice and she has such a passion for her job. On the day itself, Annabel caught so many unseen moments and we can't thank her enough and will treasure our photos forever .
