Full Description
You’ve been looking for ages, right? Looking all over for an alternative wedding photographer who gets ‘YOU’. You want a fun, relaxed wedding day with no fuss. You’re planning the party to end all parties. You want to plan your day, your way and you want super-fun and colourful photos to capture allllll the fun of the day in a relaxed and chilled out way. Well hey there! I might just be exactly the photographer you’re looking for! I’m Rach. I’m a craft nerd, serial Netflix binging, tea-o-holic, peanut butter loving, music geek who loves to travel. I’m also a kick-ass alternative wedding photographer who loves quirky, relaxed couples who like to do things differently! I know that you feel super awkward in front of the camera. I do too! That’s why you want your wedding photographer to feel like a friend and help you chill out. I get told that I am less like a stuffy supplier, and more like a guest that takes cool photos! My couples always say that I help them feel totally at ease. No posing or pretending. No pomp and circumstance. Just fun. So if you’re all about partying like it’s 1999, chest bumps and necking champagne from the bottle on your wedding day and you want a bunch of awesome photos to record the day without the hours of boring group shots and cheesy poses, we should definitely talk! Whether you’re planning a cool city wedding, a tipi wedding in a field or even the tiniest elopement in a simple town hall– I want to hear from YOU. I’m a big fan of couples who want to stick an almighty finger up at tradition, and be totally themselves in their wedding planning. YOU DO YOU, BOO!

Rachel has been fabulous!
Rachel has been fabulous throughout the current uncertainties around large celebrations. I have had to split my event and she could not have been more helpful with that and very reasonable with cost. I haven't had any photos yet as the events haven't taken place but her customer service has been second to none.

ROCKSTAR PHOTOGRAPHER & ALL ROUND LEGEND
We cannot thank Rachel enough for being totally awesome and creating some insane images - some might say pieces of art! She covered the 'legal bit' of our wedding at St George's Hall in the summer on a sweltering hot day! She was a total professional; did loads of research into beautiful backdrops and got the ultimate EPIC picture in front of the big St George's hall doors ... ROCKSTAR PHOTOGRAPHER & ALL ROUND LEGEND

What an absolutely wonderful lady!
What an absolutely wonderful lady! Right from the beginning Rachel was super friendly and made us feel extremely comfortable. Rachel did an amazing job on the day and even went the extra mile to help us out with a little lighting issue. We don't know how she managed to get so many incredible photos out of a group of photo awkward people, we couldn't have wished for anything better!

A truly lovely human and amazing photographer
We were lucky enough to have Rach and her lovely husband Mike photograph our wedding in July. Well all we can say is they were both AMAZING they put us both at ease straight away, especially for the couple shots. Rachel from day one from when I had messaged her with a request of coming all the way to Bath and to shoot for us over two days was so accommodating to all our needs, and understood straight away how relaxed our wedding was going to be and her and mike just slotted into our wedding festival perfectly. Rachel would regularly message me to see how things were going and to see if I needed help with anything. I have had so many guests comment on how lovely they both were and they really did just feel like our wedding guests, you didn’t even realise they were there taking photos! When we got our photos back I was blown away and cried so many happy tears, they had captured it all perfectly, we can’t stop looking at them! A truly lovely human and amazing photographer and we could not recommend her enough! Alicia, Dan and the sausage dogs xxx

Rachel was better than any photographer we could i
Rachel was better than any photographer we could imagine! She made us feel very comfortable on the day, we loved having her help us capture lovely photos for our wedding ceremony. The photos came out so genuine - we didn't even notice that she was busy taking them! We would definitely recommend Rachel (especially if you're not comfortable in front of the camera)!! ps. Very professional in all regards, from skype interview before to arriving early on the day and letting us know about all details i.e. time frame for photos etc.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

All of my weddings are memorable in their own way, but the one that sticks in my head right now is parading through Liverpool City Centre with Genevieve & Matt, dancing in the street with all their guests to the amazing musical stylings of their brass band. Such a good day!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, documentary, relaxed, alternative and colourful!

What about your business are you most proud of?

Every last bit of it! My business is my baby, and I've built it up from nothing, into an incredible, thriving business in less than five years. Having shot well over 100 amazing couples, I've made friends for life, and take great pride in capturing amazing memories that they will enjoy throughout their lives together. It's an absolute privilege to be invited into a couple's wedding, and I love every last minute of it.

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

Do it your way. Nothing is too 'you', and don't let anyone tell you that you can't do something. Your wedding should reflect the two of you as a couple, not a picture perfect, cookie-cutter ideal. Rock your day, your way!

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

I love it when couples include their personalities in their day- one of my favourites was when Lizzie & Lee included their love of skiing and snowboarding in their day, including an alpine themed cake, ski resort table names and even a shot ski- a ski with two shot glasses attached, which when they drank from them together revealed "Mr & Mrs Inkpin" underneath!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to have a video call with my couples during the booking process so that we can have a good chinwag and get to know each other- as you might be spending a big chunk of your wedding day with me, it's super important that you get to know me and feel comfortable. Then, you'll recieve a digital booking pack from me, as well as a lovely welcome pack through the post. Between booking and the big day, we'll chat lots- I'm always on hand for advice, recommendations or just as a sounding board! The next time I'll 'officially' be in touch is 8-10 weeks before your wedding. I send over a questionnaire to plan in all the logistics of the day, and we'll plan in another video call to chat about everything together so that on the day itself you don't have to worry about a thing! After the wedding you'll receive some lovely previews within a few days, and then your full gallery will be with you in around 4-6 weeks.

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

Again, every couple is different and there are no rules! But I think all couples should take 15 minutes away from their guests to have a couples session- it gives you chance to catch up. Have a cuddle and decompress away from prying eyes. Plus you get some lovely shots of just you two!

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

Ohhh sooo many! I've been out for tractor rides with couples, climbed mountains, headed to the beach... i've even had the entire wedding party climb on tables to get an epic shot under an unexpected rainbow! I'm up for anything. You name it, I'll shoot it.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Don't sweat it- I'll always find a way to get you some awesome shots! And buy an umbrella, just in case.

Describe how you got into photography.

I've always been a creative type, studying Contemporary Applied Arts at Cumbria Institute of The Arts (Now University of Cumbria), and embarking on a career in Textiles, before spending many years teaching. I first picked up a camera to photograph my little brood, but got 'hooked' on capturing the joy on people's faces, leading me to decide on weddings and events as a focus. My husband bought me my first 'proper' camera (along with an uncharacteristically romantic post-it note stating "My best investment x", and the rest, as they say, is history!
