Kyra from Firetree Creative Photography was trained in dark room photography by her father and has over 25 years training and experience. She also trained and worked as a music video editor and her showreel includes Holly Valence 'Kiss Kiss' and Blue 'All Rise'. Kyra has personally been photographing weddings through her company Firetree for over 12 years and has a unique approach to storytelling. She has a natural and unobtrusive style that captures the day creatively with a unique artistry. “Having Kyra and her team to photograph our wedding was one of the best things about our day! Everything was perfect, we couldn’t be happier with the amazing personal service and beautiful photographs. I haven’t looked at them without crying. Kyra is so incredibly talented and made us feel so comfortable on the day. Her approach meant that we had so many beautiful photographs that were natural and told the story of our day perfectly. We couldn’t recommend Firetree Photography enough” Megan Simmonds Kyra is the director of two companies, Firetree Photography and Firetree Visual Media, bringing professional imagery to both personal and business clients. Kyra personally only photographs 15 weddings a year and as such needs to be booked well in advance to secure wedding dates. Kyra's wedding collections include both digital only and bespoke album packages and covers weddings from bride preparation through to first dance. A second photographer is available on request as well as associate photographers should Kyra be unavailable.

Location & Contact Details
What is your most memorable wedding?
When the best man asked me to hold a key - during the speeches he asked everyone who had a relationship with the groom to hand their key in!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Artistic, natural, un-staged, memorable, professional, experienced.

Repeat customers and all my lovely reviews.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't worry about the little details, you are with all your friends and family, you will have the best day, no matter what happens - it's all part of the story!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Not a personal touch, but one of my brides had problems walking and wanted to walk down the Aisle on her wedding day and she did, she also danced the first dance without her walking sticks. I cried.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We talk arrange to meet and go through ideas and albums/service over a cup of tea/coffee. Booking/deposit and admin is taken care of. Pre-wedding consultation is booked in 6 weeks before wedding. Final schedule plans are drawn up with timings/contacts/group shots planned. Photograph the day. 4-6 weeks online gallery ready, couple contacted and digitals organised and album planned. 6-8 weeks, album delivered, client reviews. 1-2 years, I photograph babies, anniversaries and friends weddings :)
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Outside church after the ceremony celebrating on their own with a kiss. It is also so important to photograph grandparents and parents... life is short and these moments are so precious.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The groom was a rugby player and wanted his bride to catch a shot in the air of him throwing the rugby ball, he wanted the best man to hold her up. Problem was her arms were tight in her dress so the ball would have headed directly to her nose.... I decided to photograph the sequence as two shots to prevent a broken nose! It was though great fun.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Get outside and have great fun with umbrellas, off-camera flash and the rain! (bring some wedding wellies or converse to wear under your dress.. no-one will ever know)
Describe how you got into photography.
I blame my father.
