Full Description
I would describe my style as documentary – uncontrived, unobtrusive and creative, ‘story-telling’ photography. I want my images to tell the genuine story of your wedding day as it really happens. It might be a knowing look, a poignant embrace, sunlight filtering through a window, seeing these moments and capturing them beautifully is what I do best. I have a discreet style which allows your day to flow freely without staging shots or interfering. My natural, reportage approach means that I am best suited to couples who are planning to have a relaxed and informal wedding where the emphasis is on sharing their wedding with close friends and family, not worrying too much about tradition but preferring to put their own stamp on the day. I am a massive travel bug so if you are further afield, I would be more than happy to travel to you. I offer destination wedding photography packages for weddings out of the UK.

We could not have asked for better
I am so happy we chose Hannah to be the photographer at our wedding, we could not have asked for better. From day one of finding Hannah we had great communication with her and she was very enthusiastic and even excited for the special day. She even travelled down to see the venue with us in the rain a few months before the wedding. Hannah provided a lot of support throughout the wedding day beyond taking photos, such as trying to make sure I had something to eat, helping me get ready and trying to ease my nerves just before I walked down the aisle. The preview photographs I have received so far from Hannah have been so lovely and I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures. I would highly highly recommend anyone to Hannah who is looking for a natural relaxed photographer who obviously is very passionate about what she does.

What can I say? We were lucky enough to have Hannah agree to photograph our wedding in North Devon. The results were stunning with a collection of beautiful pictures to treasure. Hannah was professional and non intrusive to the point that you wouldn’t of known she was there. I would truly recommend her to capture your special day. Thank you so much

Hannah really was fantastic
Hannah was our wedding photographer in August 2019 and we really couldn't fault her. She was so helpful from start to finish, and made everyone feel so comfortable. We asked for natural, light photos that captured the mood of the day and this is exactly what Hannah delivered. Hannah really was fantastic, and our photos are beautiful. Thank you Hannah! x

What is your most memorable wedding?

I was photographing a really lovely wedding in the South-West and we were doing the couple shots in which I asked the bride and groom to walk towards me so we could get some really lovely natural moving shots. Somehow I had forgotten that there was a fountain behind me and I walked straight into it and fell into the water! Both cameras were safe, but my leg was not. Now I always bring a spare pair of trousers with me! I am still waiting for the clip to be put on 'You've Been Framed!'. Anything to get that shot!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, natural, unobtrusive, creative and uncontrived.

What about your business are you most proud of?

In July 2017 I left my retail job and took the plunge into starting my own business. I didn't know how it was going to go, if I was going to get any interest or if I would have to go back to a retail job. Thanks to the website and advertising knowledge of my wonderful boyfriend, I now have over 50 weddings for 2019 and over 50 weddings for 2020.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Remember to take time out - I know there is that constant need to plan, plan, plan but even just an evening of watching TV or going for a walk will do you wonders! When starting to plan the wedding, give yourself enough time to plan your wedding and remember to allocate time for you both to be together and relax. I always find that a good ol' weekly plan helps me plan when I'm going to do work, and when I can chill out.

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

I love it when couples create 'remembrance tables' at their weddings for their loved ones that couldn't be at the wedding. It is just such a lovely sentiment and it is so important to remember the family and friends that are still with us, even if they aren't physically at the wedding.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

When a wedding enquiry is sent to me, I will talk through the packages I offer and will arrange a consultation with the couple so we can meet in person and talk photography. With couples that are further afield I will offer a Skype consultation. After the consultation, I will send the couple over the notes from the consultation, and a copy of the contract. If the couple is happy and wants to go ahead, then the deposit is paid and contract is personalised for that couple. Then a venue visit is arranged, and any other meetings that may need to be had before the day are arranged.

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

Confetti! I LOVE the confetti shots at a wedding - they are always so elegant and fun!

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

Hmm.. this is a good question! I love it when couples ask if we can leave the venue and go to a place that means something to them, like by the beach or a certain walk. This makes the pictures much more special for them, and they get a bit of 'time-out' from the day!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Clear umbrellas is a MUST - I always bring a couple with me just in case! If it's raining on your day, we can go out in the rain and take some really natural and funny shots of you and your friends.

Describe how you got into photography.

My dad used to be a wedding photographer, and so when I began studying Photography at A Level, he gave me his old film camera and this allowed me to learn how to use a camera manually. Now I have a degree in Photography and I am able to do a job that I love.
