Full Description
I am all about capturing the beautiful stories that unfold at each and every wedding not just the predetermined events, such as the first kiss and the first dance, but all the precious moments in-between. Every wedding is unique and my aim will be to document yours as it unfolds naturally.   I’d just love to be there to capture everything for you! I can tell already just by looking through my portfolio you are my kinda couple and think we would have a blast together - which is great for getting those natural wedding photographs.  As you’ll see from my portfolio, I always get the best from my couples and ensure they are completely relaxed and in the moment on their wedding day.  Nothing fake or contrived – just you as you are and your wedding as it happens With an artistic vision, my focus will be to capture the emotion, moments and atmosphere in an authentic way. The result will be a beautiful story told through a set of unique and timeless photographs. All the best and look forward to hearing from you. Carla x

THERE ISNT ENOUGH STARS!
Well, what can I say about Carla & her work...📸 For a start, she instantly made us feel at ease. From finding her on facebook whilst I was browsing for a photographer, right up until the day. Friendly, bubbly, professional, funny & one of the most genuine people you will ever meet! 😘 She came to my hotel the morning of my wedding and we clicked instantly. As a person she is truly wonderful & we had such a laugh. It’s like she was part of my wedding party! 👰🏼 We wanted a photographer that could catch the raw emotion of the day & get candid shots as we aren’t ones for posing much. This week we got our pictures & I cried. They are so stunning, colourful, candid little gems. I knew they would look lovely due to work I had viewed prior to booking Carla & my god she totally outdone herself. She was mixing in with our guests & they have been raving about how lovely & professional she is. Carla you have been amazing, now we see you as a friend, not a vendor at our wedding. We absolutely adore our pictures and our album and our USB (basically we love EVERYTHING) 😍 Thank you for being you & capturing our wedding so perfectly. Lots of love, The Banham’s ❤️😘

Such a talented lady!
Choosing a photographer is hard but when we first meet Carla we knew she was the one. I hate having my photo taken but she made me feel so at ease. She captured so many special moments on our day including a beautiful shot of my husband & his mum having a chat between the two of them that means so much now as she is no longer with us. Everyone compliments us on our photo’s and my cousin loved them so much she has also booked Carla for her wedding. I can say hand on heart you won’t be disappointed xxx.

The most awesome photographer!
Carla made us all feel so comfortable around her. I feel like I trusted her completely to capture the day perfectly, which she did. I am so grateful to her for capturing our memories to look at forever. She was brilliant.

Fab photographer
Carla was amazing at our wedding back in July. We were over the moon with our photos. She listened to what we wanted and also suggested some ideas in different settings for photo opportunities. She’s got a great eye and she really did do a fab job.xx

The best photographer we could of wished for last year
Carla was brilliant from the start. Right up to our day even afterwards, she was fantastic. When we first met and she went through all her packages an explained everything and answered all questions me/my family had with quick response. Carla helped out during getting ready not only was she there to take the photos but it felt that she was a amazing help with anything that needed doing. Nothing was a problem Carla really helped out with some of my 5 little bridesmaids during the wedding breakfast also. Me an my husband love our photos. Every time someone comes round or we go to family/friends my album is stuck to my hip even Nearly a year on. Everyone has said how amazing our photos of our day are. A lot of people have said they have never seen a wedding album as beautiful as ours is. We had a pre wedding photo shoot in November last year. I’m not one to like having my photos done but with in seconded I felt really comfortable and so did my husband. Again all photos brilliant and loved by us and all family an friends.. Carla even took the time to upload all our pre wedding shoot photos on to our wedding usb stick. Which people have borrowed to get copies and again that normally lives in my handbag. Would definitely recommend Carla in the future and I’ve already recommended her when I’ve seen people ask. As soon as my sisters got a date for her wedding, I will be straight in contact with Carla. I wish I could do it all again our photos are just simply the best and we love them very much.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Creative, Romantic, Fun, Relaxed, Unposed, authentic

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I photographed a wedding in Casa De Laila in Spain and it was simply stunning!

What about your business are you most proud of?

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.

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

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 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 and heart warming to get an insight to the couple and what is important and meaningful to them

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The connection I have with my clients - I have become life long friends to many of my couples. Who often stay in touch. All my reviews say 'its like having a good friend there capturing our day'

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I got into photography because of my children. I started to photograph them. It lead to photographing local bands. I then started supplying images to a greeting cards company - 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.

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?

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.

Describe how you got into photography.

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.
