Pictures of YouCertificate of Excellence 2019
Blandford Forum, Dorset(19 Reviews)
A photograph can capture a million memories and it’s at those special milestones in our lives, a skilled and creative photographer is needed to add that unique ‘wow’ factor. I have over 12 years’ experience in various arenas including portraits and nursery shots, but I specialise in wedding photography.
My love for photography means every new project fills me with a burning enthusiasm and a real desire to turn a client’s dream day into a splendid memory they and their families can endlessly enjoy. I believe that true photographic skills lies in more than just having the correct qualifications or knowing the right lens to use or which focal setting is best on a cloudy day; the key is to understand the needs of each client, so I can capture them at their very best.
I take pride in what I do and I love what I do. I have the skills to get people to relax as well as the ability to build confidence for them to produce the best photos of their day. I’ve successfully managed to get some babies off to sleep for their parents to enjoy their wedding breakfast! Occasionally there are sensitivites where my clients have to deal with an unfortunate bereavement and I have the experience to enable clients to feel comfortable with me through an emotional day.
As far as fees are concerned, I tailor my charges to your budget. Is your special day on the horizon?
Let me help you capture those memories forever. Please get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you and working with you soon!

Pictures of You Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
Rapport with clients, loads of experience in many 'live photography' situations, together with complete understanding of any light situations!
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
I ask about themselves, their work, hobbies, what's important to them about their day, about their family. I start by asking them about the plans they have so far and how I can bring the best out of their day for them.
What do you love most about your job?
Lots! I love the privilege of working with people and the results of their day in the captured images I produce. I love their happiness when they see what I've managed to capture for them - the moments they hoped they looked ok - only to have my photos and find they look amazing! Together with their happiness at being able to look back and relive a day that they have spent (often) a long time planning but which goes in a flash - and the moments they miss which I capture!
What inspired you to start your own business?
My passion for photographs, capturing moments of people's lives as a beautiful record for them of that time in their lives.
Why should our clients choose you?
If you want dedication to your day, amazing value for your investment, professional products and most of all - truly beautiful images from your day - pick me.
