What is your style?
My style is relaxed, romantic and a little bit arty. I love to capture all the little details, the big moments and the small, along with all the emotions that are felt during your wedding day. I also like to put my degree in Fine Art Photography to good use and prove I didn't spend the whole time hanging out at the student bar. My promise is that you'll end up with a whole set of beautiful photos that you cannot stop looking at.
Do you travel?
Absolutely, I have photographed weddings all over the UK and internationally for over 20 years. Traveling and discovering new places to photograph people in love is one of the highlights of my job.
We generally don't like having our photo taken, help!
Don't worry, I was nervous about having my photos taken too. I totally get it and will make sure that we get to know each other and give you plenty of gentle direction so that by the time your wedding rolls around, you'll feel much more comfortable and like you're there with a friend.

Do you take family group shots and the details?
Yes, of course. Although having group photos taken probably isn't the most exciting part of your wedding day, it'll be something you look back on fondly years after your big day and are a lovely keepsake. I work quickly and without fuss to take group shots so that you can get back to celebrating. As for details, I'm not going to let all those months of planning the little things go uncaptured. I love details and will photograph them with as much love as you put into choosing them.
Are you LGBTQ+ friendly?
100%. Love is love and everyone is welcome.
What about Micro weddings?
I love micro weddings, their uniqueness makes them so special and the fact that they may be smaller shouldn't mean that they are any less amazing. Please get in touch for a bespoke quote.
Do you offer eco-friendly albums?
Happiest amongst nature, I like to give a little back. I offer eco-conscious and vegan options for my beautiful wedding albums and prints, please get in touch for more information.
"We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect photographer. Jen was kind, open and patient from the time we had a chat to discuss our plans for the day, right through to reassuring me a few days afterwards when I got a case of post-wedding anxiety! On the day, it was like having another friend at the wedding. She made us feel entirely comfortable. The final photographs are, quite simply, better than we could have ever dreamt of."
"Jen took our wedding photos at the beginning of May and honestly - we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. From the very first message we exchanged, she has been extraordinary in her efforts to make our day even more special. She is so easy to work with and made us and all our guests feel very comfortable in an instant. She captured every single moment of our wedding perfectly and we will be smiling (and crying!) at the photos for years to come. I highly and wholeheartedly recommend this lovely, lovely lady"
"When I look back through the pictures I can feel what I felt that day all over again. The anticipation, the relief after our vows, the tears and laughter, the fun, silliness, the whole vibe and most importantly the love! Not just between us but the love that we felt from all of our friends and family that day. Jen caught it all. They stir up all the emotions every time I look at them. Jen, we really cannot thank you enough xxx"
"Jen is the most outstanding photographer - creative, lovely, professional, puts everybody at ease and manages to capture the most intimate and magical moments from behind the lens. I cannot recommend her services highly enough."
"I don’t even know how to put into words just how brilliant Jennifer is! We knew we had to have Jen capture our wedding day when we fell in love with her gorgeous relaxed photos and creative style, but we had no idea that she would help us create such fun and lasting memories that we will treasure forever. That in itself is priceless. Jen didn’t just capture our wedding day she created this incredible journey that started from the moment we first contacted her to the moment we received our pictures and have been transported back to the most perfect day every time we look at them"
