Apart from being superbly professional and super friendly Alison has a natural ability to capture the most poignant moments, she has a way of blending into the background so you forget she’s there and act natural, that’s when she gets the best shots .

Alison was extremely professional from start to finish whilst ensuring the atmosphere was relaxed at all times. Her relationship with the personnel at the registry office was clear to see and it helped get the best angles for our photos. The resulting photographs far exceeded our expectations and will serve as a beautiful reminder of our special day for years to come. We are delighted with the outcome and highly recommend Alison x More...

Last year Alison drove to Wales to be my sons wedding photographer , she produced an out standing portfolio for them & made the day both relaxed & special . She has continued to edit lots more from the wedding.
Her skills as a photographer are evident in all her work , she strives quiet effortlessly for perfection .
I am proud to be a BB (best buddy) for more than 20years & she's both professional & great fun at all events .

Alison photographed our Plymouth wedding a few weeks ago, and we also had a pre-wedding photoshoot. The whole way through she was very helpful and enthusiastic, putting us all at ease, and making the process really enjoyable. We've just received our edited wedding photos and they're perfect - can't recommend Alison enough! More...

Alison is such a lovely lady. She made us instantly feel at ease and like we were out for the day with a friend rather than at a photo shoot and the photos are beyond my expectations. I would 100% recommend Alison to anyone xx More...

Alison recently took the photos at my brothers wedding. I can honestly say she was amazing she interacted with all of the wedding party and guests was very kind and professional. Alison took plenty of requests from all of the guests. During the important parts you didn't even realise she was around as you can see for yourself her work is amazing. Thank you alison and I'm sure Luke and Vicky were very happy you were part of their day you captured it beautifully. :) More...

Basically we can't fault her at all, and we highly recommend her to take your photos as you will not be disappointed, she went an extra mile being creative, to get the artistic shots we wanted. Absolutely perfect,

We had the pleasure of having Alison be part of our day! She was calm and collected and great at capturing the less formal moments of the day - which we really wanted - as well as those family favs! We had a preview of our photos yesterday and we're chuffed to bits with the results, thank you Alison for doing a great job x More...

Alison was amazing! I was quite stressed at the church due to some unforseen circumstances before the wedding. Alison was totally calm throughout and really relaxed me! Some lovely shots were taken at the church and Alison was brilliant with the guests. We then went for our individual shots at the royal William yard which look beautiful! So happy with the result and Alison was so lovely to be around. Couldn't believe the price aswell - so reasonable! Very highly recommend to others :) xx More...

Lovely lady made us feel at ease and really enjoyed our wedding photos being taken. Has great ideas and some of our photos turned out brilliantly as they were fun and not just the every day normal boring ones. Would certainly recommend her to everyone and also go back for more on any other occasion we needed a photographer. More...

Thank you so much for your kind words Michelle. Being able to photograph your wedding was a pleasure :)

Q&A

The secret ? That's a good question but really a simple answer for me. I believe the best photographs you will take of a couple or individual is one where they look natural, they are relaxed and enjoying the moment. The time spent with their loved ones (if at a wedding) is precious and they will probably not want a camera put into their face ever second of the day. In formal shots whether of a wedding or maybe a business environment it is paramount to be in charge of the photoshoot but also flexible to any changes that might occur or be requested.

The most important question is how they want to be portrayed. If it is a business or product shoot what do they want the outcome to be ? For a wedding it is similar - do the couple want lots of formal shots or a more relaxed, photojournalistic type of day ? It is paramount that all the people involved in the project are aware of the outcome needed and also time and financial constraints.

I love the fact that I am able to work with clients, especially in my wedding photography that enjoy and appreciate the way I work. I am able to relate to all ages and understand their needs during what can be a long day. I am able to be flexible to any given situation whether it is dealing with difficult weather or lighting situations. My favourite part of my job is being able to give people amazing value for money - I am often told off for being too cheap ! However I would rather a couple have amazing photographs of their wedding even if they are on a budget rather than have to 'make do' with 'Uncle Bob' and his snapshot camera :) I find this so satisfying and it's not all about making lots of money for me.

I must admit I fell into my photography business -I won't lie to you :) Photography has been a hobby to me since I was a teenager (yes I remember film) however in 2012 I was asked at the last minute to photograph a friends Son's wedding - their photographer had let them down with only a few weeks to go. I must admit I was scared and asked to sleep on it. The next day I said YES as I couldn't imagine not helping them. The day of the wedding in Swansea was amazing. The temperature was over 30 degrees and I ended up with some lovely photographs for them. Since then I have expanded the business and enjoy every wedding I do as every one is special in its own way.

I treat every photoshoot or wedding as a very important time. I do not follow a script or expect any one of them to be the same. I do plan what I will do, with a vast amount of input from my clients, however this can alter at a moments notice if circumstances change - most weddings have a little surprise for me which keeps me on my toes. I am really known for thinking on my feet and making a shot or seeing something happen and clicking the camera. My clients often forget I am taking their photograph and are shocked to see some of the images I have taken when they receive them. I love to work with both youngsters and the not so young and treat them as I would wish my own family to be treated and respect their needs during the day. My website shows images from only real weddings and if you take a look I am sure you will see I am able to capture both atmosphere and emotion.
