Full Description
With digital cameras on hand for those low-light and fast-paced moments, I also add luxury film images. Rich with character, but scanned into a convenient digital format, I deliver seriously stylish collections which are still true to life. Above all else I want you to look as fabulous in your wedding photos as you feel – forever. Your love story is what I want to frame, using a mixture of fly-on-the-wall shots, natural groupings and the lightest, most gentle direction if you need it.

We love every single photo!
Oh Liz! I don't know where to start! We love every single photo, I can’t believe how truly beautiful they are. We both had tears in our eyes looking through the gallery, they are just perfect, I can’t believe there are even more to come! I know I’m going to get absolutely nothing done tomorrow for looking through them again and again! We’re so excited to be able to show these to all our family and friends too. I don’t know how to thank you enough. Wish I could give you a big hug. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Liz is an insanely talented, welcoming, warm lady
Wow wow wow!! I don’t even know how to do this amazing lady justice. Liz is an insanely talented, welcoming, warm lady - who even if you are completely nervous will put you at ease instantly with her kind heart. Liz manages to capture the inner beauty of everyone and her images are just utterly dreamy and most importantly - when it comes to you’re wedding day - totally timeless. From someone that wasn’t familiar with the use of film photography to now being someone who wished they new of this art years ago... I can’t Thank you enough Liz we have some truly precious memories to look back on for years to come.

We were so excited when we got the final photos!
One of the things that drew us to you as a photographer in the first place was that you used film photography, and we were so excited when we got the final photos! The best and most helpful thing about your process was your knowledge about the timings on the day of the wedding - it felt like you knew every aspect of the whole day, which made things flow so seamlessly.

The exact photo experience we dreamed of.
Liz has such a wonderful, kind manner, and provided the exact photo experience we dreamed of. She took care to find out in detail what we wanted for our wedding, and from the get go, she was sensitive to our needs and our budget. On the day, she took endless photos but in a very calm. quiet but fun way and was non-demanding of our guests. We honestly can't decide which photos to frame as we would like to put so many of them on our walls. Liz is very creative, has an eye for light and makes the most of the surroundings. The results were amazing.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I make friends with almost all my couples and so this is really a difficult question! Each wedding is a precious memory which may sound cheesy but it's actually true - and that's why I love my job so much! But a wedding by the pool at a family gite in the south of France ranks pretty highly. :D

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Stylish, natural, modern, timeless, chic.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am most proud of how I become like one of the family at a wedding, seamlessly fitting in and capturing the day beautifully "from the inside". Also, I'm really proud of the beautiful qualities of film photography!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

My top tip is to consult your photographer on the timeline. They know so much about the changing light depending on the time of year, your venue and through the course of the day. Light is the key to fantastic photos. Also, on a completely different point, I always recommend making flowers central to your decor for a stunning look.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

This is tricky, as I've seen so many! For me I think it is the exchanging of private, personal love notes and gifts during preparations before the ceremony. Such a beautiful moment.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

It's really straightforward. Once you get in touch I'll send out my pricing structure, which is transparent with no hidden costs. I'm always happy to discuss details with you either by email, on the phone, or via video chat. I also love to hear more about your plans for your day, whatever stage they're at, and am happy to advise on timings free of charge even at the early stages. If you're ready to book, I'll send you a link to your own personal online portal where you can fill in the booking form, sign the contract and pay the 50% booking fee. Then you're on my calendar! Together we'll add the details to your timeline for the day over the following months so everything is ready in plenty of time. I usually give brides a quick call the week before the wedding, just to settle any nerves and give some last-minute encouragement! After the wedding you'll get a sneak peek to enjoy and share, usually within the week. Full galleries are usually available online in your own private gallery to download within 6-8 weeks of the wedding date. You can also share the link with family & friends and can purchase prints and albums online too.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

For me, there's no question: a beautiful, natural portrait of you both which you can enlarge and frame. It's also easy to neglect the group shot list. Although I insist it is kept to a minimum so it doesn't derail your cocktail hour (30 minutes max), I do also recommend you get those shots with parents (and grandparents if applicable). I failed to do that at my own wedding and have regretted it ever since!

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Another tricky one! I'm generally trusted by my couples to find the best locations & lighting, and to offer the most gentle direction only if needed. So I don't tend to get asked to photograph much specifically, although naturally I am happy to be asked!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

There's rarely a rainy day wedding without a single dry spell! So my advice is to be flexible with your timings if the forecast is wet, so that you can grab a few photos outside when the rain has gone off a little. We can always have a backup plan for some group shots indoors if there's really no other option, and I personally love window light for portraits anyway so that's covered.

Describe how you got into photography.

I haven't so much "got into" photography as simply grown up with it! My father was a keen photographer from his childhood and it was completely natural for me to follow suit when he placed my first film camera in my hands aged 10. Throughout my teens and twenties photography sat right alongside my other artistic pursuits - with advanced Art and Music exams to name just a few. In adulthood I have added the use of pro digital cameras and editing to my resume, yet film photography is where I began and I where I have once again ended up. An understanding of light and composition are the key to great photographs, and this has always formed part of everyday life for me.
