Full Description
Hello!!!   I'm Lynette, I'm based in Southport and cover weddings in Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire and the Lake District but happy to travel further if required. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like me too capture your special day outside these areas, even if its abroad.   I love nothing more than to have a good natter over brew and too hear all about your wedding plans; talking about weddings makes me all giddy.   If I have to describe my work, I would say I'm a mixture between documentary, posed, fine art and fun. I can't really categorise my style of photography as I like too capture what I feel. Every wedding is different and I am there to capture and tell your love story. I love couples that don't take themselves too seriously and let the magic unfold naturally. ​​ I'm also a huge animal lover (and also a vegetarian), I'm obsessed with Disney and I love my food, especially cake! ​ If you think I'm the one to capture your special day then please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love too hear from you.

Wow, what a lady!!
Wow. What a lady!! Lynette has got to be the best photographer in the world. From start to finish she made us feel so at ease throughout the entire wedding day and night... she worked perfectly with our Videographer (who she had never worked with before) and just made everyone laugh and smile all day. We are so excited to see our wedding pictures, we have no doubt they will be incredible. Thank you so so much! So sad it’s all over xxxxx

Lynette is a true proffessional
Lynette is a true professional who blended into our home seamlessly on the day of my sisters wedding. She is extremely talented with a knack for capturing special moments in a natural and creative way. I highly recommend Lynette.

The day wouldn't of been the same without her
Lynette is amazing. She made us feel incredibly comfortable on the day. She made it fun and an enjoyable day. I’m so pleased that lynette travelled from Lancashire all the way to Essex. The day wouldn’t of been the same without her. We would highly recommend lynette for any event. She will make your day enjoyable and she captures the most special moments. We can not wait to receive the rest of our wedding pictures. If the sneak peek is anything to go by they are going to be truly special. Thanks again lynette xx

I knew she was the photographer for me
I had been looking for months on end for our wedding photographer; it was our hardest wedding decision, but from the moment I saw Lynette's website I knew she was the photographer for me-- she was a Disney and animal lover and her fabulous personality jumped off the page and I felt as though I already knew her. Her warm, friendly and calming nature from the start made us certain about booking her and her photography style was exactly what I had been looking for. When we actually met for our engagement shoot, I felt as though I was meeting an old friend. Even when my (now) husband was initially apprehensive, she immediately put us both at ease with her bubbly expertise. We LOVED our engagement photos and she sent them through to us so quickly! After the wedding Lynette sent over our "sneek peek" SO quickly to ensure that we could see some photos before we went on our honeymoon. They were better than we ever could have imagined! She captured moments we didn't even know that we'd had. Many of our guests commented on her quick and precise professionalism. Of all of the weddings I've been to, she's the best I've ever seen! Even when the rain began on our wedding day she improvised with her thorough knowledge of photography and used all of the tricks in her box (there were a few😄) and captured beautiful, indoor photos. My family and friends have been blown away by the small selection of photos we have at the moment. She's the best there is! Thank you SO much for everything, Lynette! We couldn't have chosen a better photographer! We're so happy to have met you and have no doubt the rest of our photos will be absolutely amazing!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Fun, documentary, posed, and everything in between

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Remember it is your day, don't sweat the small stuff. Even after months or years of planning your day will have a slight hiccup, embrace everything and enjoy every second because it will go so quickly!

What about your business are you most proud of?

When the bride or groom contacts me whether that is by phone, email or Facebook we will have a chat about what they would like etc. If they're happy with everything a deposit will be required to secure their date followed by a contract. If the couple require a engagement shoot that will be our next meeting otherwise I schedule a venue visit a month or two before the wedding to catch up on the details and go through the schedule of the day. It will on the wedding day that I will next see them.

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

ooooo thats a tricky one, DIY brides and weddings are becoming more popular so I have seen a mixture of personal touches.

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

If your wedding is in the UK it is bound to rain at some point, so if the couple require a venue visit, we plot out the best parts of the venue to capture group and intimate photos just incase it rains.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

That I created this business from scratch with the support and patience of my husband (he bought me my first camera a few years before I started my business)

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

Horses in the barn

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

Definitely the confetti shot, kissing under a shower of colourful flower petals is a must! You get some fab reactions from the guests, your kissing as the new Mr & Mrs and the colour just pops!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

I photographed a last minute wedding in wales. The bride literally contacted me three weeks before her wedding to see if I was available, it was on a wednesday, so I was. The couple and all that surrounded them were lovely, and friendly and I felt so welcome, it was clear that they were loved by many. Unfortunately the weather wasn't at its best and as the wedding was held at her mums home.We were stuck for locations to capture some intimate shots. Luckily the bride had a lightbulb moment and took me to a barn located at the back on the house, it was there that the farmer let us walk inside to then be presented by a barn full with horses and their foals. A moment I will never forget.
