Full Description
  • Hey I am Carla, I am a self taught photographer with a huge amount of passion and drive based in Kent. I love nothing more than photographing a first look, a father welling up as he gives his daughter away, a connection a moment shared in the family, the emotion, the drama from a special day created by you two as a couple. Like each moment unique to you so is my photography from your day. My photography is honest, distinctive and with my signature artistic flair but also with bags of personality. Each wedding I photograph will reflect you, the thought and attention to detail you put into your special day is incredibly important to me, I take my time to get to know my couples as I believe friendly relaxed approach leads to stunning natural photographs you see on my website. All my collections include a complimentary free engagement/pre wedding shoot gives us a chance to get you use to having your pictures taken and provides you with some wonderful keepsakes from the day! I have three collections - Romance, Whimsical & Sweetheart all three include images on a beautiful wooden or crystal USB stick and the full day collection, Romance includes that and a 12x8 handmade Loxley Colour Album - absolutely stunning craftsmanship preserving your images and memories for generations to come! So if this your idea of perfect then please get in touch.

What is your most memorable wedding?
I photographed a wedding in Casa De Laila in Spain and it was simply stunning!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Creative, Romantic, Fun, Relaxed, Dreamy
What about your business are you most proud of?
The connection I have with my clients - I have have become life long friends to many of my couples. Who often stay in touch. All my reviews say 'its like a having a good friend there capturing our day'
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book a photographer that you love, their work has to speak to you and if it does then it has made an impression a connection, its moved you, I think that is really important.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
For me its the attention to detail on the little things - decorations that have meaning to the couple, I have seen so many different personal touches centred round the table decorations I thought it was very cool.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Its a very relaxed process, I am just me hanging out with my couples taking pictures of the day. Thats best way to describe it. I take a lot of pride in my work and its so important to me that they are comfortable and that we have a giggle. Bridal prep is where I help calm the nerves of the bride, help out where I can and take pictures sneakily. I am with her and then the groom all day capturing their love story. So a fun relaxed element is important to me.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The one photo - now thats hard but it...has to be one of just the groom and his bride away from the hustle and bustle of the day. A chance to take in and to just breathe in the days events...These private moments speak volumes in photos and you get to capture just the bride and groom completely in love and happy.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I guess it was a groomsmen shot at a driving range. All the groomsmen lined up at the driving range, golf club and golf balls to hand and took a swing. I was on the range taking the picture :0)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Brolly and Wellies and to not be put off by the rain!! It can add some serious drama and lead to wonderful images. When rain is captured it looks like sparkling diamonds.
Describe how you got into photography.
I got int to photography because of my children. I started to photograph them. It lead to photographing local bands. I then started supplying a greeting cards company with some of my images - which got published and distributed around the world. After that I started getting recommended for weddings and fell in love. I've been abroad, been published and along the way made some awesome friends.
