Natural and unposed – if that’s what you want from your wedding photos, you’re off to a good start. Modern Wedding Photography You’ve never been a stickler for traditions you don’t follow, so why start now? Have you ever understood why there’s such a fanfare in cutting the cake in full view of your guests? Me neither, and while I can recommend some amazingly artistic cake makers, I’m not going to demand you pose for a photo with a knife in your hand. Of course if you want it, you got it - my point is.... Your wedding is about you, so when you book me, I like to work with you to make sure you get the look and the shots you want, not the ones you don't want. My style - Natural, creative, intimate and full of colour Your photos will be colourful and honest and intimate. That last word needn't scare you - I'm as afraid of the camera as you are, which is why I work hard to make you feel comfortable and natural and still look good. My wedding photography is perfect for couples who feel awkward in front of a camera but still want to look amazing in their photos. Love, laughter and you As I’ve watched my little ones grow, and watch older family members pass on, it reminds me just how important it is to value the love that we have. In the planning of a wedding, it’s so easy to get caught up in the detail and forget the bigger picture. When all’s said and done, a wedding is about two people sitting down and looking love straight in the face. So what’s really important to me is to focus on the connection between you. And you know, to get a little bit creative while I’m at it too.

A relaxed photographer who kept us both calm
We would not hesitate to recommend Frances! We were looking for a relaxed photographer who would keep us both calm on our informal wedding day and Frances was perfect! We met Frances for breakfast in the early days of wedding planning and booked her straight away – She is so easy going and we knew that she was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer! Frances not only took the time to visit our venues, but to get to know us and what we wanted. Not to mention that everyone commented on how great Frances (the cowgirl!) was on the day – she caught some amazing natural shots and we cannot stop looking at our stunning photo album! Thank you again Frances!

"We had such a fun time and it put our minds at re
Great photographs of our wedding were top of our list when we started planning and Frances did a fabulous job capturing our day! We feel so lucky that she was our photographer - she supported us from first meeting to choosing our pictures for our album, was an absolute joy to have there on the day and produced the most beautiful images. We were worried about finding a photographer. We thought it would be a headache as my husband has a passion for photography coupled with exacting standards! He's also much more comfortable behind the lens than in front of it. I met Frances at a wedding fair and I thought her work was natural, fresh and beautiful, just what we were looking for. When we all met together in a pub to discuss our day, it was extremely relaxed and felt like we were catching up with an old friend. Having seen her work and met her in person together, we were confident she would do an excellent job and were excited to work with her. We had a nervous energy in the run up to our engagement shoot as we had never done anything like it before. We were really happy with the locations suggested by Frances and she helped us prepare for them by providing honest and helpful advice which we really valued. Throughout the shoot, we became increasingly relaxed posing together for the camera. Frances knows what she is looking for in a picture and will very gently encourage you to be yourself to get the best shots. We had such a fun time and it put our minds at rest for the main event. Frances was excellent and keeping in touch and was very prompt in sharing images with us. It was great having everything organised online so it was less paperwork to lose in the stack we were accruing! On the day, she was brilliant. She's very calm, relaxed and efficient. We had fun getting ready with her taking pictures and everyone felt completely at ease, she even helped me into my ridiculously high heels when everyone else was getting ready! We loved the variety and balance of shots she took - we had a shortlist of 'must haves' but our favourite shots are those little moments throughout the day which we didn't necessarily notice at the time! She blended in and captured some incredibly special moments. We also love the details Frances picked out from photographing my dress, shoes and flowers, to my husband's outfit and antique camera he was using. Our couple shots are intimate, creative and capture us both at our best. Frances sent us some sneak peak piccies while we were on honeymoon which was a wonderful surprise and were promptly shared with our parents. We thoroughly enjoyed going through all the images with Frances once we were back and found it hard to choose which to go in the album! We got there in the end, together, and we love the quality of the album and the memories it contains! All in all, it was the most stress-free part of our wedding and that is very much down to Frances' approach. She's a great communicator, very friendly and mindful of what you are looking for, and extremely talented. We'd choose her again in a heartbeat and would certainly recommend her services to our friends and family.
