I'm Louise, your a-typical redhead - that's good ole' sunburnt me up above!
I'm rarely in front of the camera, so I know exactly what you mean when you say 'we don't like having our photo taken' - trust me! Photography is my first love, and literature my second; I love being buried under a pile of beautiful books with a free afternoon and a big cup of coffee.
I've been photographing weddings for five years now, and I've had the joy of travelling across counties and oceans to do so - from Antigua to Ayrshire! I live in a little cottage in the remote Lincolnshire countryside with my partner Will and our redhead pup, where the pace (and the internet) are a little slower. My photography style is candid and unassuming - so much so that an ex-head of MI5 once described me as 'discreet', no word of a lie!
I blimmin' love heading off on my travels, whether that's to the Suffolk coast, Cornwall's cliffs, the Scottish Isles or (much!) further afield. I'm pretty convinced the best way possible to spend the day is to head out in your walking boots, camera harness and go explore, stopping off for a G&T and a piled up plate of veggie haggis nachos (I guess my Scottish degree rubbed off on me after all!).
A few other favourites are;
canine pals (especially our needy oddball redheaded pup)
trying to include salted caramel in every foodstuff possible
even better gin
running round new cities with old friends
deli shops and discovering artisan granola in hipster packaging
the countryside & the coast
I want to capture that which is uniquely 'you', so love hearing all about you and your plans. Get in touch and let's go get coffee (or gin...).
Let's tell your love story
From the beginning
Whether you’ve been engaged forever or for a day, let’s explore together and get some photos of the both of you. This is my favourite way to get to know you; to find out how you fit together, to discover your characters and your quirks. Let’s go somewhere you love, or somewhere you’ve always wanted to go; dig out your comfy shoes, choose your favourite window spot in your favourite cafe, trace your favourite path along the beach, through the woods, and savour the moment, with unobtrusive, candid photography.
On the day
From the morning madness to your fizz-fuelled dances, I'll cover every little detail. Up to 10 hours coverage to document some of those stellar dance moves you've been saving for the big day. We can take a moment together to capture some beautiful portraits of just the two of you, then head back to the heart of the party.
Delivered to you
Your 500+ will be delivered on a USB and via an online gallery, with a few previews for you to share straight away.

Portraits & family

How would you describe your style?
Relaxed and non-obtrusive.
I'm there to retell your day as it happens, to capture your laughter, side-glances, and the two of you in all your goofiness.
How much do you charge?
One-size never quite fits all when it comes to weddings, so get in touch and tell me a little about your day.
Do you travel?
Abso-lutely! Wherever you're headed, take me with you!
I'm based in Lincolnshire, but have covered Norfolk, Yorkshire, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Ayrshire - even Antigua! If you're a significant distance from my home in the English Midlands, there may be an additional fee for travel.
How do we book our date?
After you've enquired and we've had a chat, I ask for a £250 deposit to hold your date, which is deducted from your total. If you'd like to go for coffee (or gin!) first to see if we're a good fit, just let me know!
What if I'm not good at being photographed?
Trust me, you're not alone! I include a pre-wedding shoot in my collection so that you can get used to being in front of the lens, and relax around me. There's little posing, no awkwardness - sure, a little laughter at first, but that's all the sweeter on camera. By the time your big day comes around you'll be completely in the moment, and I'll be able to capture you candidly.
Can we have a second photographer?
Of course! Having a second perspective can help to capture more of those untold moments. It's not a necessity at all, but can be the perfect extra for your day. Just ask!
Are you insured?
I am, for your peace of mind and mine.
Without a doubt the best pie-and-mash you'll find. Melt-in-the-mouth pastry served from a gorgeous, rustic horse box, Jack's ethos is laid back and just lovely.

Lincolnshire-based stylists Sophie & Siobhan have an eye for all things colourful, quirky and gorgeous! Their collection is just lovely.
