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.

Future Brides & Grooms need to book lynette
We could not of asked for a better photographer on our wedding day. From the moment we met Lynette she made us both feel comfortable and at ease. The wedding day went perfect and all the guests said how professional but fun lynette was. Lynette settled my nerves but captured the shots without invading personal space or being over powering. We are made up with the sneak peek shots of our wedding and look forward to seeing the finished results but know we won’t be disappointed. Future bride and grooms need to book Lynette. Xxx

100% recommend
Lynette photographed our wedding on 26th October this year. From the very first meeting we knew we wanted Lynette (we didn't bother going to see anyone else!🙈) she was so lovely, fun, cheery and warm and made us feel so comfortable. Communication was great throughout, we never had a worry about anything and the day itself she was the perfect level of fun and assertiveness getting the job done! The photos are exactly what we wanted, loads of beautiful natural shots that we love that captured the whole feel of the day and everyone's personalities! 100% recommend!

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!

Lynette, you made our day even more special
I really couldn't recommend Lynette enough! From meeting her in Feb 2018 to our wedding in August 2019 she was always there no matter if it was photography related or just to have a general chat! She is such a lovely down to earth person and we knew from the moment we met her she was the perfect person to capture our special day. We have just received our wedding photos and we are so happy with them! Lynette has managed to capture moments we never thought of and can't believe she managed to capture! Thank you so much Lynette, you made our day even more special!

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

The pictures are absolutely beautiful.
We chose Lynette to be our photographer, as soon as we sat with her in her shop we knew she was the one for us. Not only are her pictures beautiful but she is just so lovely, approachable & knowledgeable. On the day she fit in just like a wedding guest & was just the right amount of bossy to be able to organise everyone & to get the pictures I asked for. Everyone at the wedding spoke highly of her. Lynette has a way with kids especially & managed to capture so many beautiful moments during our hectic bridal prep. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and we couldn’t love them anymore. So many natural lovely moments that you miss yourself on the day captured forever. I honestly can’t think of enough nice things to say about Lynette, she was made for this job & if you’re considering booking her, do not hesitate. Thank you so much for everything, you’re a star. Love Kayleigh & Darren x

FAQ

What is your most memorable 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.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, documentary, posed, and everything in between

What about your business are you most proud of?

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 your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

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

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

Describe your typical process with a couple.

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

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

Horses in the barn

What do you recommend for a rainy day 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.
