- Wedding photography is so incredibly important! Once all of the day has been and gone, the photos are what you have left to remind you of that wonderful occasion. Choosing the right photographer for you can be an incredibly difficult task. Laura takes an artistic approach to wedding photography. She sees the world in a different way, making use of the lighting and environment around her as well as providing her own light, for the highest quality images. Most photographers will offer you either all posed or all natural. Laura captures both! There's plenty of time to photograph all the beautiful poses (really get some wow shots!) and time to capture all of your guests enjoying your day and having fun. With every collection you will receive: 1. An engagement photo shoot! Learn how to pose (and how to avoid the common mistakes most people make!!) so you can be more natural in front of the camera. 2. 12 hours on the wedding day so both of you can have photos getting ready through to past the first dance 3. 2 Photographers. Laura has an assistant who will capture many natural photos as well as assist the group photos so it all runs smoothly and efficiently. 4. A beautiful USB full of your hand edited wedding photos for you to print from 5. A free gallery for your friends and family. Free downloads at High print resolution (optional)

What is your most memorable wedding?
I've had so many incredible days! I'm usually talking about Magali & Leon's Wedding in France. There was food, wine, sunshine and most of all laughter!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Artistic, Beautiful, Stunning, Reportage, Real
What about your business are you most proud of?
Creating memories for wonderful people. Capturing the moments and the emotion of the day.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Take your time and plan for everything, particularly bad weather!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
An owl bought in the rings during a wedding. It was really beautiful and all the guests were stunned!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Everything is planned to the last detail to avoid stress. I want each and every one of my couples to know they can trust me to deliver their images, better than they expect them to be. I start with a phone or in person consultation and we discuss what they want. After this it's the engagement session where I show them how to pose and how to be natural with the camera, which is surprisingly very important! Then comes the wedding day where I am with the couple & their family for 12 hours, capturing every laugh, every tear and every beautiful moment. It's such a rewarding job to be the person to make this happen.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Have a back up plan, at every time of year! Have umbrellas (& wellies if it's a field!) and plan somewhere inside for group photos. This is vital because who wants to say the weather ruined their day? From my experience rain has only enhanced the images because my clients are always prepared.
Describe how you got into photography.
It started with an art degree and a family business with wedding cars! I love the art of photography, I paint with light! And now I'm hooked.
