"If I had my life to live over again ...
I'd find you sooner, so that I could love you longer"


Congratulations to you both, I'm so excited for you.

Now to the fun part planning your special day!

My creative, fun storytelling style will capture all the details from your day in beautiful, natural photographs. Each wedding is as unique as you are and I aim to capture it as the day unfolds.  It’s about the two of you and your connection, the details and the emotions as they appear naturally.


It's YOUR wedding day story.


I often get asked if I am a family friend at weddings because my aim is to not stand out but capture your images as discreetly as I can. I shoot with a documentary style with an 'as it happens' feel rather than too staged / posed. That way I feel your images will be naturally you. 


So what can I offer you as your wedding photographer.


I want you to not only LOVE your photographs but feel you are reliving your day over and over when you look through your images. To capture each moment in time as a loving momento that you will treasure for many years to come. I care deeply about your special day and aim to be your wing girl supporting you through the nerves and excitement and most of all FUN. 

What happens next.

Get in touch to check your date is available! Once the contract and retainer is completed your date will be securely booked in my diary. I will be here for you every step of the way whilst you plan all the details. I can recommend some lovely suppliers or offer any advice you may need along the way. We will plan either a Skype chat once you have finalised your day or a meet up (which I prefer) so we can get to know each other and for you to see how relaxed and calm I am. I want to know about you and your story and for you to feel comfortable with me, after all I will be spending the whole day with you. If booked we can also do your pre-wedding couple shoot, these are perfect to get comfortable in front of the camera so on your wedding day you're relaxed and not self conscious.


Be reassured!

I bring back-up equipment for everything, just in case, I will have 2 cameras with me at your wedding –and all your photographs are backed up to 2 memory cards. I want you to feel like you’re in safe hands with me as your wedding photographer!

Tara was our amazing Photographer at our wedding.

She captured our engagement shoot September of last year, we knew straight away she was going to be good. She put us at ease when we both were feeling silly and nervous and made the whole thing from start to finish so enjoyable and fun. On our wedding day she was just amazing we couldn't wait to see all our photos, and she did not disappoint. We have over 500 amazing photos to choose from and love ever single one of them.

Thank you so much Tara, you work so hard and we can't thank you enough

 Tara is amazing, she has captured every moment of our special day and the feedback from everyone is what an amazing photographer she is.


Would definitely recommend her to anyone who asks.

Looking forward to getting them framed and on show for everyone. Thank you Tara xx
