Full Description
  • ​ Hello, I'm Kayleigh, a natural light wedding and portrait photographer based in The Cotswolds. I photograph beautiful weddings throughout the South West of England, and I can honestly say that I love what I do. My style of photography is natural yet considered, and I really do appreciate the time, thought and effort that you have put in to make your wedding day perfect. I work calmly, discreetly and professionally to ensure that you, as well as all of your guests, are completely at ease throughout the day. I am there to capture your story as it unfolds; the emotions, the colours, the expressions and the memories. My wedding photography allows you to re-live your day over and over again. For most of the day I’m creatively documenting everything as it happens and you probably won’t even notice me much. Your couple portraits are completely relaxed and there is no awkward posing involved, we’ll just go on a short walk and I’ll capture you interacting. All of my family and portrait sessions are informal and relaxed. As with my wedding photography, the best moments are captured when people are at ease and having fun, so I really love to shoot outdoors, particularly at places that are special or meaningful to my clients. I like to think I do things a little differently, if that’s what you are looking for, I would love to hear from you.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding is memorable for it's own reasons. One wedding that springs to mind is a Summer wedding in 2016. The couple had arranged for two golf buggies to meet us outside the reception venue, so that when the sun started setting, we could cruise around the vast venue grounds to get some gorgeous shots of them together!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fun, Relaxed, Natural, Real & Bright.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Many things make me proud, but receiving feedback from my clients after they've seen their images is an amazing feeling! Also being announced as a regional finalist for The Wedding Industry Awards 20717 was a huge highlight!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't stress about the 'small things'. Remember, the day you are planning is a celebration of your relationship together, and it's really important that this is a reflection of you both. If something isn't quite 'perfect' on the day, no-one is going to know or think any less of you!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I see so many at every wedding, but one that springs to mind is when one of my couples provided each guest a 'Marie Curie' badge, which doubled as a donation to the charity. This was in remembrance of the brides Father who had sadly passed away.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Usually this starts with a simple email or enquiry through my website. I ask for your wedding date and venue, which allows me to check whether I am available or not. If I am available, then I will answer any questions you may have (either via email or phone to suit you). If you'd prefer to meet in person and you're not too far away, we can arrange an informal chat (usually over coffee & cake!). If you decide that you would like to book me, I will send you a contract and booking form, along with details to pay the 25% deposit. The next time you hear from me will be to arrange your pre-shoot (if you have booked the full-day package this is complimentary, if you have booked the half-day package you will opt to book a pre-shoot). Roughly a month before the wedding you will hear from me again asking for some final details about the wedding. This allows me to put together a timeline to work to, to ensure that nothing is missed. During the wedding itself I am discreet, approachable and friendly, capturing real moments as and when they happen. After the wedding, a few 'sneak peeks' go live on my Facebook page so that you can share with friends and family on your online profile. You can expect to receive your USB of images approximately 3-4 weeks after the wedding (but don't worry, I update you on how the editing is going so you know exactly when you will receive your images).
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Every photograph taken at a wedding is important, but one I always endeavour to take is a big group shot of every single person you have at the wedding. So often guests can spill off and fall away from the main group, so getting a big group shot of everyone you have at the wedding I think is a great idea - this means that you have at least one image that includes everyone that came to your wedding.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
If it rains, it rains. Are you going to think less of your wedding or is it going to mean less? I'm pretty sure the answer is NO, so my advice if it rains is to just embrace it! The weather will be what it will be and there's not much you can do to change it unfortunately. Why not consider buying some white or colourful umbrellas and having some wellies on hand? This way we can head outside and get some great 'rainy day' shots. This has happened to me so many times, and I can assure you, my couples always love their rainy day pictures!
Describe how you got into photography.
I've always had a fascination with photographs. I can clearly remember being a child and looking through family albums. At weddings I would always be the child that finds the disposable cameras and went round the room taking photographs of people. When I was at school and college a lot of my art work relied heavily on photography. I also worked part time at Jessops, which gave me the knowledge and understanding of cameras and photography equipment. During my degree (in Graphic Design), I worked closely with my tutors who supported and encouraged my photography work too. Getting into 'weddings' was something that happened quite naturally - I am a big romantic at heart and I truly do adore weddings and all that they stand for. I've been shooting weddings professionally full-time for the past 3 years, and grow to love my job more and more each day!
