The photos were beautiful and so much better than we expected as we didnt think we were very photogenic! I would definitely recommend Tasha - she's fantastic!
So this page gives you more of an idea of who I am and how I work.
My style is a mixture of candid and creative moments – I love using colour and shape and rarely ask people to look directly at the camera. I have a sketchbook full of ideas and inspiration and am proud to be constantly learning and trying out new things.
The photography element of a wedding day shouldn’t be a chore – NOTHING on your wedding day should be a chore if you can help it! Sure, its’ not always easy to be in front of the camera, but that’s mostly to do with being too aware of yourself – trying to do a ‘nice’ expression. What you end up with is a weird, tense smile that is so far from your natural face it can put you off for life! The trick is to mess about – to play games, talk to each other, to genuinely ENJOY YOURSELF. Fun looks good on anyone, and I believe creating that fun is an essential part of being a good wedding photographer.
Not to blow my own trumpet but I AM a bit of a pro at this – I’ve been a portrait photographer for 11 years, starting with families and kids and then setting up my own wedding photography business. I have photographed all ages and walks of life from teeny babies to the CEO’s, and I have enjoyed learning how to best portray the characters of each and every one. Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it takes a wee bit more time and reassurance, but in the end I will always produce a set of images that you will be proud to point yourself out in.
I know the money side of things can be difficult – weddings are expensive beasties and photography take a sizeable bite out of the budget, but it’s the part of the wedding that goes with you through your life. I know I would say this (haha!) but it really is worth investing in. Even if you go for a half-day or a bespoke option to fit to a strict budget ANY amount of time with a creative professional photographer will be worth it. Its important to me that my prices are listed clearly online and there are no hidden costs or scary surprises – what you see is what you get.
Have a look at my portfolio and if you like my work check out the prices page. If that side of things is all good next stop is my testimonials and Google reviews, and then if you’re feeling keen give me a shout to check I’m free on your wedding date :) We can go from there!
Whether or not I spend it with you I wish you a wonderful wedding day – remember it is all about having a good time. Go celebrate your love with your family and friends, go minimal on anything that stresses you out, be comfortable and spoil yourselves rotten. This is going to be one of the best days of your life!

Frequently Asked Questions
How do we book you?
Are there travel costs?
Do we have to feed you?
Can I still have traditional posed group shots?
Of course! Though my style is generally very relaxed and candid I always aim to do a few more ‘posed’ group shots where everyone is looking at the camera. If I didn’t I would always feel there’s at least one sad Nana looking through the gallery for that classic family pic to go on her mantelpiece and not finding it. It’s definitely worth doing a few, but I advocate keeping posed group shots to a minimum. It’s better to spend more of your time having fun with your guests then being away somewhere posing for pictures. If I had my way I’d do this simple list for every wedding and that’s it:
Everyone throwing confetti
Immediate family both sides
But feel free to add and subtract as you like! Every couple is different as to how important they feel the groups are and how many they want to do – go with your heart.
I will usually make sure I take a posed picture of each grouping, but my favourite shots are always those where I just get you into a nice shape against a pretty background and get you messing around! Laughing, playing shouting dancing – generally having a good time – those are the shots I have of my own loved ones that mean the most to me.
I’m feeling worried about being in front of the camera! Can you help?
What insurance do you hold?
How long do we have to wait until we see the pictures after the wedding?

Tasha was much more than just a photographer, from the beginning through to the end she offered really helpful advice and guidance on all the little details.
Dream team of photographers to capture the moments of our special day! Would 100% recommend. Once again a massive thank you!
Throughout the run up to the wedding Tasha's communication and organisation was excellent and she was so excited to be part of our day.
We are blown away with the photos Tasha has produced for us, each one is genuine and captures completely natural moments of emotion. Truly cannot recommend enough <3
