I create warm, romantic, nostalgic, and intimate photos. Your wedding is more than just a day, and you deserve timeless pictures to reflect that. I'm passionate about making time stand still.



Six months to a year in advance, however, high season (May-October) fills up fast. If you’re interested in that time frame inquire ASAP.


Availability dependent, I have no problem going where you are going to be! For long-distance weddings (outside of the Birmingham area) and destination weddings, extra charges may well apply to cover essential expenses. To find out more, get in touch and I’ll build a custom package for you.


I’m passionate about making time stand still. I want you to look back at these photos in your older years and be taken back to a specific moment or feeling. It may seem silly because a picture is a picture, but they’re what we are left with when time goes on and the memories fade and the people have gone. It never changes despite change happening as the years go by. I want your photos to bring you back to a place where love was reflected around you and you were surrounded by those you championed you. I want your photos to bring you joy, make you feel warm inside and brighten your day. Not just from the images of you, but those sweet sentimental moments of the ones you love the most too. It takes seconds to take a picture but they tell a story for the rest of time. They are more than pixels on a page, it’s the story of you. My endeavour is to always make time stand still for you.


I absolutely photograph LGBTQIA+ weddings and I’m your ally. I’d be honoured to capture your special day.

Chelyr-Simone took the most perfect photos for me. She made the experience delightful and so relaxing. I'm usually a nervous and very camera shy person, however, I felt at ease straight away and so did my partner. She directed us so well and took a huge variety of photos with different settings, angles, and poses. Her editing skills are also stunning; I have never seen hay in the background look so good! All my friends and family have commented on how stunning the pictures are; my mum has already ordered prints! I honestly can't put into words how talented she is and how friendly she was and how welcomed we felt. Thank you so much, I wouldn't recommend anyone else.

I am highly impressed by the level of professionalism, thoroughness of approach to get the perfect image, and creativity for each and every shot. Working with Chel to get such lovely and professional photos is easy and comfortable. I would totally recommend her, hire her before she is fully booked out!
