"We can not recommend Ajay enough, anyone looking for a photographer in the Midlands this is the girl you must book with!!! Having had Ajay photograph us on our Wedding day I can honestly say that our photos are absolutely incredible and way better than we could have expected especially considering that it was at such an affordable cost. I am normally very picky with photos and did not expect much to avoid disappointment but I've been really taken by surprise as I absolutely love every single one of them and so does my husband. We had such a great and fun experience having our photos done, we felt comfortably at ease and not awkward at all as we did worry about this before hand since we've not had a photographer focus on us before like this but she was very professional yet fun. All of our photos are very good quality, creative, fun, natural and just beautiful!!! We also could not believe how quickly we had our photos sent to us and to top that off we even had a follow up message to make sure we have received everything and are happy. "

Very beautiful natural photos
"AJay did fantastic job taking our engagement photographs. We were treated very professionally, but also with a smile and a laugh, and were made to feel very comfortable and relaxed. The result was some very beautiful natural photos. We definitely recommend. Thank you."

"We found Alex to be an absolute delight. She has managed to capture some fabulous photos of our wedding day. The website download option you can share with friends is great as is the personalised engraved memory stick. I would not hesitate in recommending Alex again and again. Thank you so much Dom and Di x"

"I initially did not want a photographer due to being so self conscious. A family friend told me that I would regret it so I caved. As soon as I met Ajay I knew I made the right decision. She is so professional and is incredibly talented. I viewed my photos today and they are better than what I could of imagined. Thank you so much Ajay."

Their puppy as the ring barer!

Pretty umbrellas for you, nothing for me. Don't worry - my camera has its own coat.
