Sally you made our day!
We booked Sally before we had even confirmed our wedding venue. We wanted to make sure we chose the right person to capture our day in a way we could remember it, for the day it was, for the rest of our married lives. A lot of research went into finding the right person and when we stumbled upon Sally's photos we knew she was the one for us. We are a couple who cringe at having photos taken and were dreading having to pose awkwardly on our wedding day. Sally's candid photography style eliminates those staged looking shots, she manages to captures the essence of a moment in a photo which is exactly what we wanted for our day. We first met her at our pre-wedding photo shoot. We weren't sure about a location but fortunately she had lots of ideas for us and was happy to make suggestions. We ended up in a gorgeous setting and she somehow knew all the little nooks and crannies that we would never have known existed and that looked amazing in our photos. We were so nervous about the photo shoot and, as we drove to meet Sally, we were discussing how we couldn't wait to get it over and done with! When we met her, Sally put us at ease right away. She had us laughing the entire time and knew exactly the right things to say to get us feeling natural and relaxed. We ended up loving it! The photos looked incredible and we knew we had absolutely made the right choice choosing her for our wedding day. On the day, Sally arrived and chatted briefly to me and my bridal party, explaining what the day would entail and reassuring us that she was going to work as unobtrusively as possible and that we likely wouldn't even know she was there most of the day! This turned out to be true - in fact, for most of the day we didn't even notice she was there. Sally worked in a way that let the day flow naturally around her, with no interruptions to ours our our guests' experience. At times during the day, emotions were very high. I was really anxious about walking up the aisle and Sally knew exactly what to say to put me at ease - I was so grateful for that. Sally felt like more than a photographer in moments like that, she was a friend. There were also times where she confidently took charge and guided us through aspects of the day we truly had no idea about. She was calm and in control and had the answers to everything. She is clearly a woman who lives and breathes weddings and this is exactly what you need on a day when so much is going on and there are so many people to organise. I have to mention one moment that stands our for me and Charlie on our wedding day. After our wedding breakfast, Sally suggest we go and try something a bit wacky and we went and had some photos in the sunken bathtub at our venue. It had us hysterically laughing, just the three of us, and it was the perfect break from the intensity of the busy wedding day. We can't say enough good things about Sally. She's a pro at what she does and she is an absolute gem of a person to be around. If you're considering Sally for your wedding, just do it! You will not regret it. Sally, you're awesome!

"Sally went the extra mile"
Cannot thank Sally enough for the amazing photos she took at our wedding. Sally was patient and went the extra mile to capture great shots for us. Friends and family have all said they would definitely book her should they need a photographer in future xxx

"Sally made our special day amazing!"
Sally made my wife and my special day amazing! So eloquently organised and incredibly subtle, barely noticed her there throughout (excluding the group photo’s) where she managed everybody fantastically)) Sally and Emma were fantastic and we just can’t wait for the photos to be developed, thank you both so much!

"I'm so glad we found Sally"
I'm so glad we found Sally at an open day we visited where we were to later choose as our venue. From the get-go I felt comfortable in Sally's company. When we had our pre wedding shoot, my now husband and I were both quite nervous as it's not natural for us to be centre of attention but Sally made the shoot a fun experience and didn't mind at all when a got the giggles! Sally hugely contributed to our wedding being the amazing day it was. It was lovely having her and Emma alongside us throughout the day and as a result we have a fantastic collection of images and memories we shall treasure forever. Thank you so much

"I cannot recommend Sally enough"
I cannot tell you how pleased I was when I stumbled across Sally when looking for a wedding photographer. She is the most loveliest, bubbly yet professional person you could ever meet. She makes you feel at complete ease in front of the camera and her photos speak for themselves. She takes beautiful, relaxed natural pictures that will be treasured forever. I first met Sally on our pre wedding shoot in a muddy park after it had just poured with rain one autumns day. Lucky for us the sun then started to shine. Looking around at the bleak twiggy backdrop I worried that it may be a terrible set for our special wrong was I! Sally's eye for photography and detail is amazing and our photos were absolutely stunning. Then to our wedding day...Sally provided us with 2 photographers, herself and Emma. Your big day.... this is where Sally goes in to stealth mode, where she blends seamlessly with your guests and surroundings. You are only reminded of her presence when you listen carefully for the continuous clicks! Yet when you need or want her you are met with a beaming smile and a helpful hand. I can not recommend Sally enough as a photographer. She managed to capture every little part of our amazing day and we are left with the most beautiful of memories. Just take a look at her pictures and see for yourself.
