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 ❤️😘

Our perfect day!
Carla captured our day perfectly as we didn't want our photos to be too formal. She could see what we wanted and I didn't even have to ask for shots of things like my Dad seeing me for the first time in my dress, she just knew! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Carla x

Carla made the wedding unforgettable
Before the wedding carla was always on hand for a chat or a to go through amy queries. Carla met me just before the ceremony and had a quick chat (as she dod woth the groom) she arrived early to set up and as a result got some beautiful pictures. During the ceremony and signing of the register i barely noticed she eas there and she went out of her way not only to catch some amazing pictures but also pitched in to help (was a diy wedding) The photographs she captured are a brilliant reminder of the day and edited to perfection. Even the small details we were too busy to notice (like a crab on the beach) She was fun and attentive to detail and id definitely recommend her. If we renewed our vows I'd book her again.

The Money wedding
Carla you was just amazing!! From start to finish, you captured every emotion going! Yoy even helped with me getting in my dress :-) You put me and Craig as ease when having our pictures taken and got the very best out of every shot even if you had to lay in the puddle (that picture was stunning!) You helped create our Perfect day in pictures for our long lasting memory. I was so proud to have you as our photographer and I would recommend you again and again. Thank you so much.

Amazing photographer
Carla made us feel so comfortable and relaxed from the outset( which was important for my husband and I as we both don't really like having our photos taken.) she went above and beyond to help me and my girls keep calm whilst getting ready and then took some beautiful photos throughout the day which we can cherish forever. Carla would do anything to get the perfect shot and all of our guests commented on how amazing she was! Would 100% recommend. Thank you again!

FAQ

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, Unposed, authentic

What about your business are you most proud of?

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 your No. 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 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.

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 No. 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 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.
