Morning Carla I just wanted to drop you an email. We sat last night and went through every single photo….and putting words together to describe how much they mean to us is not easy, but I will attempt to! The wedding day was an absolute whirlwind, and like everyone says it will, it went so so quickly! We had the best day of our lives, followed by the typical feeling of….it’s all done now! The first couple of weeks after we both felt really strange, as if we wanted to go back and re-live the day, experience the parts that we might have missed on the day, and soak it all up even more so that we would remember every little detail. It’s been a brilliant time, but also a strange time since the wedding, thinking we will never get that day again, with everyone we love together in one room. Last night your photos arrived, and it was like we were right back there, 8am, at Dorfold and about to live the day again bit by bit. We laughed, we cried (I cried a lot) we got to see moments each of us had missed on the day, experience how happy our guests were, also how amazing they looked! We got to re-live the moments of just the two of us that get lost in the day, capture images of family that we are so so lucky to still have with us. It wasn’t staged, it was all natural real moments of a day that will mean the most to us forever. I cannot even begin to thank you. From the day we first met with you we knew we were so incredibly lucky to have you as a part of our day. You have excelled beyond all expectations with everything that you have delivered, you’ve been kind, caring and so thoughtful throughout and made the experience such a pleasurable one. No words can describe how much these images mean to us, and how perfectly you have captured one day. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart, now we get to re-live that day whenever we want, as often as we want and hold tight memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you Kind Regards, Bethan Robertson Harris

Carla was an absolute dream to deal with. She immediately understood what we wanted from our wedding pictures and captured it beautifully on the day. Carla is lovely, she felt like she was an old friend from the moment she arrived and put us all at ease straight away. We had such a giggle with her whilst she was capturing our day, which is I'm sure why she shot such brilliant pictures. I would absolutely recommend Carla to anyone, & will be using her again for family pictures in the near future

Carla's approach to her photography is second to none, she is very relaxed and fitted in to the wedding party with ease. She captured images with out us even noticing she was there. She was very encouraging when we felt a little awkward and the photos were outstanding because of this. She was a pleasure to have around and I would recommend her to anyone.

We got married in Mexico...
We got married in Mexico & had a wedding reception when we got home. Carla came before our wedding reception to capture photo's of us & our family. It was raining but Carla managed to get the most beautiful photo's & even went out in the rain with her camera to ensure we got the best photo's possible. She then stayed for the cake cutting, first dance & for a little while afterwards. Again, she captired the most beautiful photo's which were completely natural. I will cherish them forever.
