If I’m wanting to be your photographer then I’ll want to know as much about you as possible, so It’s only fair I give you some information about me right? I’m Laura, a fully qualified female photographer based in the sunny City of Preston, Lancashire. I’m a camera clicker, dog lover and all around creative enthusiast! I discovered a passion and undying love for photography from a young age, when I was given a camera while walking around the streets on Venice. The people were so different to me, and it intrigued me to another level. Starting out from capturing images of exotic places and people, this addiction soon turned into a fully fledged relationship. I love capturing emotions, which means my style of photography is very much candid and relaxed. I love to have fun with my couples which means I don’t force your guests to smile or make you pose in a way which will be uncomfortable to you, I want to capture real, raw moments. As I studied photography at university I originally started photographing fashion, I was in love with conceptual shoots and bringing out emotions in the subjects, and showcasing the fashion pieces. This means I have two ranges of styles! My first style I would say is very grand, and dramatic. I love photographing from different angles, bold lighting and getting an amazing shot of the dress and the person. My second style is much more relaxed and natural, I love to see peoples raw emotions and reactions, there's something about capturing those details which make me ecstatic. I particularly love focusing on the 'first look' and personalising couple's photograph's to show their unique personalities. If you want a photographer who will be constantly on the look out for perfect spots to capture that moment when you and your partner get a few minutes alone together after a busy day, then I may just be the one for you. I cover throughout the UK and beyond, so if you have a destination wedding feel free to message me and I’ll make it happen!

What is your most memorable wedding?
How can you choose?! Each couple are completely different to the next, that's why it's so much fun!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Creative, artistic, traditional, airy, natural
What about your business are you most proud of?
That I'll put the couple first. I'll never make you awkwardly pose if that's not what you want to do. I can still get great shots of you and your family without taking you away from the fun.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
When looking for a photographer I personally think it's important to meet them and make sure you get on, after all you're going to be spending a lot of time together! I also think its important to make sure you find the style that's right for you. Some couples like the classic posed style to their photographs, others adore the natural look. It all depends on your tastes and opinions, the great thing is everyone is different! Most of all, enjoy your day! It really does fly by and all the little worries you had beforehand don't even become apparent on the day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A fingerprint tree. Guest's place their finger into ink and leave their thumbprint as a leaf of the tree, perfect for framing!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Each process is different dependent on the couple, some really want to go over absolutely everything, other's are beyond chilled about everything. I usually meet up with a couple to have an informal chat over coffee! We can go over what styles they've seen and would like to incorporate into their wedding day. I personally visit the venue to have a feel of the place and instantly pick out places I think would be great for a photograph. From there we can plan the engagement shoot (if wanted), and another optional final meeting before the big day to keep your mind at ease!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I personally adore the first look, it's one of the rawest moment's you can get, I also love the after ceremony shots of the bride and groom. It gives you some down time to be alone, take a breather and for us to have some fun while capturing some great images.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
An umbrella and an adventurous photographer! However when in doubt I always recommend an after wedding photoshoot for any images which we didn't capture on the day.
Describe how you got into photography.
I first got into photography when on a trip around Europe, I became addicted with photographing different cultures and people. ( Sometimes got me into trouble! ) From there I enrolled onto a course and here I am today!
