Full Description
Hello, I'm Nancy, but most people call me Nance... I'm a full-time Wedding & Portrait Photographer from Lancashire. I consider myself very, very lucky to be doing something I adore, I love how my clients allow me to be creative with their big day. My clients also love my quirky little style and I try to shoot a wedding as candid and unposed as possible for them with a few formals for good measure. I'm based in Lancashire, Chorley to be exact but will travel the length and breadth of the universe (petrol & expenses apply obviously) for a fabulous wedding. I really like to really get to know my Wedding Clients, I feel you've got to get to know a person's, likes, dislikes, loves, hobbies and by knowing all their little quirks, their favourite music, colour really impacts on my photography. It brings my photography even more to life, it brings it soul, substance, and depth if that's possible. Good communication is key in wedding and portrait photography and having a pleasant and calm personality is very important. Also, another very important factor is after the wedding! I go visit my newlyweds with USB's, book orders, prints and any questions they may have. Not everybody is computer savvy and it just helps my clients immensely to have an awesome after service too. Most of my clients have now become personal friends, which speaks for itself.

Pulled out all the stops...
Nancy and Andy were incredible! So, our day was on the 2nd November; it was raining off and on; our budget was relatively small and stretched to its limits; preparations were cramped and chaotic (Dave and the grooms' party got ready in our little terrace house, and my bridesmaids packed into a tiny room one of them had booked at a Premier Inn). Basically, it's safe to say that we didn't exactly provide ideal working conditions! But Nancy and Andy pulled out all the stops to make our photos of the day spectacular, keeping our alternative theme front and centre while teasing at our chaotic tendencies in such a charming way. The excitement and enthusiasm that they had for our Gothic themed wedding was amazing, and really helped us feel at ease in the lead-up, and on the day itself. I honestly cannot overstate how wonderful it feels to have hired a pair of photographers who didn't look at our wedding as "just another wedding" and who were willing to take the time to get to know us and to look over our venue ahead of time. If you're an alternative or quirky couple (or even if you're not) I would recommend Nancy and Andy every single time, although, let's be honest, their gorgeous photos speak for themselves!

Hit the jackpot finding Nancy...
I initially found Nancy on google... I’m quite laid back so il be honest when I say I didn’t do any extensive searching for a photographer, but I now know I hit the jackpot finding her! She's such a lovely, warm and quirky person which I connected with quickly and we met several times before the wedding day so we could go over some ideas we both had, before finally meeting at the venue so we could go over some more ideas in keeping with the venue. On the day itself, she was a star... dodging the rainy weather quite well to get the shots we wanted, and then some rainy shots later on. Both her and Andy (her second photographer/hubby) went above and beyond! I can’t fault them. We waited a three week turnaround for our photos which I thought was amazing and unheard of.. I’ve heard brides talk about a 10 week turnaround for their pics so I was pleasantly surprised and excited. Me and my husband logged into Nancy’s website client login and all of our pictures were there and we enjoyed reliving our day again. We had many amazing pictures, some very magical and some very quirky from a different perspective! I can’t thank her enough...(Facebook Review)

Done with heart & soul...
Very professional but everything was done with heart and soul. The perfect wedding photographer for us. Nancy took time to get to know both of us and what we wanted and was amazing at making us feel relaxed on the day. Nancy was so open and welcoming from the start letting us get to know her as she got to know us. I knew, immediately, that she would be the perfect photographer to fit into our day. She even listened to some of my mad-cap ideas and did a walk around the venue with us for some inspiration on some pretty groovy shots. On the day both Nancy and Andy (her second shooter and Hubby) were fantastic. They were professional and friendly and got some amazing candid photos without being intrusive or seeming like an extra part of the day. They got on with all our guests and everyone commented on how fantastic they were. Nancy even, at one point of the day, went a little above and beyond helping me fix part of my outfit! It really felt like they were also our guests, not just our photographers. The photos speak for themselves. We got them a couple of days ago and I'm amazed by them and the sum our day up perfectly. I had lots of worries about how I'd look but she's done a fantastic job and some of the moments that I don't get to see have been caught perfectly. If I could do it all again I'd always pick Nancy as my wedding photographer. She and Andy were superstars and have given us the best gift to remember our wedding day with. Thanks so much, guys - it was all, and is all, perfect!

Nancy & Andy where the most amazing photographers anyone could ever of asked for. They worked tirelessly from morning until night capturing our Wedding in all it's glory. They have also worked countless hours preparing our photos. Nancy is the most beautiful women inside & out. From meeting her to working with her it has been an absolute pleasure. Her down to earth & loveable personality shines through & instantly makes you feel at ease & confident. Her professionalism & knowledge is outstanding. Andy was with the groomsman all morning & he was absolutely fantastic. They all instantly clicked with him & he was more than amazing. He is a lovely genuine man with a heart of gold. They both made our day extra special. Our photos are amazingly perfect in every way. Not only have these two wonderful people been our photographers they have also become our friends. They are the most incredible people with the most incredible partnership. Their love for each other & for their work shines through in every single photo they have taken. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone at our Wedding loved them ❤ They have been fabulous & we will be forever thankful. All our love ❤ Claire & Tim xxx

5 Star Wedding Review
Nancy covered our wedding perfectly - from the first contact she made us both feel at ease - she has a great sense of humour too. There is an option to have a second shooter (her husband Andy) which was important to us, to ensure we had all the coverage we could have possibly have wanted. Nancy and Andy know what they are doing and felt very comfortable in their company and we both knew they would provide us with some brilliant shots of our special day. They are both friendly folk and easily strike up a good rapport with guests, which is good to keep people feeling relaxed. Nancy's style of photography is the natural unobtrusive type, but if you want some formal photos she is also happy to do that too - nothing is too much trouble. We asked Nancy if she could do a few shots of our cat with my wife on our wedding day and she was happy to do that and think she enjoyed doing something a little different than the norm. We received all of our digital photos in a nice presentation box with a few small prints inside along with an A3 size print included in our package - all very good value and I was surprised on how quickly Nancy and Andy processed the shots and got them to us. I do have a good appreciation of photography and how difficult some shots are to get right - The photos Nancy produced are brilliant, recording our day better than we expected and the cat photos are lovely - just what we wanted in fact. The sheer amount of photos supplied was amazing and all of a good quality - which is astounding when you consider it's a high pressure situation to capture those special moments that only happen on the day. If you are looking for a wedding photographer please put your trust in Nancy, she’s brilliant. Thanks Nancy (and Andy!) Karl & Rosemary xx

If you are looking for a photographer to capture any of your special moments, that fleeting expression on a loved ones face, the love and laughter between friends and family or to simply to pick up the beauty, glamour or detail in anything, then stop right here because you have found exactly what you are looking for!!! I spent a long time trawling through the internet trying to find the perfect photographer for our wedding and found Nancy by complete chance. I cannot express enough how lucky I was to stumble across Nancy's website. From the first conversation right up to the day itself, myself and my now wife, Rachel, felt at complete ease. Nancy as a person is warm, kind, fun and friendly, as a photographer she is skilled, creative and professional but most importantly she is passionate. These qualities as a person and a photographer mold together to make something quite unique and special. This uniqueness ultimately led to the most beautiful photographs of our special day and the proof is in the photos themselves. These sentiments also apply to Nancy's partner Andy who equally played such a big part in our day. Myself and Rachel cannot thank Nancy and Andy enough and we would more than highly recommend them to anyone looking for photographers.

What is your most memorable wedding?

They're all memorable for very different reasons and the reason I say that is because we are all individual. Each wedding has its awesome merits and I simply couldn't choose and nor would I want to.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Magical Spontaneous Organised Fun Arty

What about your business are you most proud of?

Word of mouth referrals.

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

Logistics, Logistics, Logistics!!!!!

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

A glance from a very nervous bride to me; I mouthed to her that everything would be ok...she wrote about it in her review here:

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Always coffee first, haha. I get them to talk about how they met, the important details, and their hobbies, likes, dislikes. I have a massive notebook which I write in without looking I may add because I don't want to lose eye contact. It's very informal, relaxed but at the same time, I'm listening to all the relevant info. I ask lots of questions.

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

There isn't one...they're all different, just the way as it should be.

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

The Bride & Groom in the middle of The Shambles in York. They stood stock still as the crowds passed by them. The shot was on such a slow shutter speed that the crowd blurred but they remained in focus. It was like a replay of when they first met when they knew they were made for each other and nothing and nobody mattered around them. I tried to recreate it in that shot because of what they had told me. I can safely say it's one of their favourite shots x

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

A covered flash about 25ft behind the newly-weds and a flash camera left in front of the B&G and a brolly for them and one for me. The flash will show all the raindrops up and look a teeny weeny bit awesome.

Describe how you got into photography.

I've always adored cinematography, art, crafts and photography to me was the next logical and emotional step. I think a photograph should come from the heart. I think that composition is a true thing of beauty. Photography isn't just a job to me, it's a way of life...
