The best choice we made
Karen was the most fantastic photographer we could have asked for. Her friendly personality made us all feel so at ease and like we'd known her our whole lives. All of our guests loved having her around and her photos are beautiful. She managed to catch all of us looking so natural but looking our best. After the wedding we really missed having her around. She really became a friend of the family. Will have to find an excuse to hire her again!

Karen thanks again for capturing our special day. We absolutely love our pics and will treasure them forever. Even more special is that fact you have photographed the boys when they were younger and recreated the shot. Absolutely priceless ❤️

Karen is just amazing! Karen was our photographer for our wedding and she was brilliant. Karen is so down to earth and truly talented. Karen made everyone feel at ease and managed to get truly beautiful photos that captured how hilarious and amazing our day was. Our baby girl wasn’t settling so Karen took the time to take photos of the three of us after the meal. We struggled to get a photo of our daughter in her dress due to her feeling under the weather so Karen even made time for my husband to take her to get her photos taken in Karen’s studio which I am truly grateful for. You are an absolute credit to your profession and I 100% recommend! I will definitely use Karen for all my professional photos from now on. Thanks again

Describe how you got into photography.

I always had an interest in photography for as long as I could remember, but I started after I had my son. It lead me into portraits and family photography. I was never going to do weddings but a friend talked me into doing hers and I got the bug!
