What makes you different to other photographers?
I love people, and photographing people's stories is an extension of what I love to do! My style is natural and candid, and I'm hugely inspired by the beauty of the natural world. Where possible, I bring the outdoors into your wedding story. Whether it's the soft glow of the setting sun or the whispering winds gently tousling your hair - I won't be standing you around saying 'cheese'
How and when do you get our photos?
Getting the photos to you is my main priority! I will always try and do a sneak peek of the highlights for you within 48 hours, the excitement is real, right! After that, my turnaround time is 4 weeks after the wedding. Here you will receive the images in a beautiful online gallery where you can share with your family and friends for a minimum of 4 months after going live. USBS, prints, and books are available upon request too, if you would like.
Do you travel out of Nottingham?
Absolutely! In fact, I love traveling, as it's a great way to have a few days exploring the local area. Once out of Nottinghamshire, there is a charge per mile, and if a Hotel is required this is additional, but don't worry - I won't be staying in a Hilton!
What Packages do you offer?
I have multiple packages to suit all requirements! - Hourly package (min 2 hours) for micro weddings. - 5 hour package suitable for mostly Ceremony - Speeches, Depending on timeline. - All-day package, this covers from bridal prep to the first dance. If you require extra coverage in the evening, that's not a problem! Also, a trusted 2nd shooter is also an option at an additional cost.

Jess was as lovely in person as she was throughout all of our correspondence before our wedding. On the day, she felt like just another of our friends, making us feel really at ease. She was great at spotting locations for unique photo ops & dealt amazingly with the little ones causing chaos! Literally could not recommend Jess enough.
We were the couple who initially briefed “no staged photos” as Jess really does have an eye for capturing those in-the-moment photos that summarise the whole atmosphere of our day, but we are so glad Jess captured some staged shots too, they are lovely keepsakes and Jess' ability to adapt was awesome and really appreciated! Our guests commented that Jess fitted right just like a guest, they didn’t even notice her taking photos. Thanks for making it so effortless! We truly had an amazing day and the photos captured really show that!
Jess was absolutely fantastic through the whole process, we can't recommend her enough. She was always quick to reply to any questions and on the day it was a pleasure to have her with us. She's so positive and relaxed, it rubbed off on us all and made the day even more perfect. Jess captured the most beautiful candid photos and her ideas for a few staged ones were great! The photos came back quickly and we have an amazing digital album to enjoy.
Jess was wonderful at explaining and guiding us through the process. On the day itself, Jess was early, professional, and such a calming presence - just what was needed! During the service, her photography was as unobtrusive as possible, which made the ceremony even more special. She also took charge of the group photos after the wedding and ensured that everything we'd asked for was done. Finally - the couple photos were INCREDIBLE. This was the part my husband and I were most nervous about since we aren't hugely comfortable in front of the camera, however she made the whole thing so fun and we had such a laugh! We were so comfortable with Jess throughout the whole day, and the quality of the photos were perfect. I couldn't recommend Jess highly enough.
Jess was an absolute gem. She took incredible photos of our wedding, and went above and beyond what was expected. She's incredibly lovely and it was a pleasure to have her as our photographer. Would highly recommend.
