staffordshire wedding photography

Hello! I'm Laura and i'm a wedding photographer.

Congratulations on your engagement! I shoot for awesome couples who are looking for creative, heartfelt images rather than traditional posing. I love shooting laid back, fun weddings where the emphasis is on having very the best day with all of your favourite people.

 

I have photographed tipi weddings, stately home weddings, beach weddings, even a wedding in a vintage cinema. Most of my couples are quite nervous in front of the camera and that's absolutely fine. I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to get you giggling so that you forget that i'm even there.

 

Most of what I do is very natural and I much prefer to focus on emotion than forcing you into poses. I love to photograph love, joy, a sneaky tear from the best man and definitely the crazy dancing.

'Laura is absolutely incredible!! We used her as our wedding photographer and she made my wife and I so comfortable the entire time, while taking the raddest wedding photos. We are so happy to have had her and will be running back to her every chance we get. Thanks Laura!'

My pricing is simple and there are no hidden extras. I charge based on the number of hours of coverage, so you have the flexibility to chose when I start and finish shooting. Typically, 9 hours of coverage will cover all the important bits but if you'd rather have more of the beginning or the end of the day covered, then that's no problem.

'Laura spent the day photographing and videoing our runaway wedding elopement. The 3 of us (and Belle the dog) spent the day together and the results were out of this world. The photos are so beautiful and the video she made us to share the news we had tied the knot far exceeded any expectations. Couldn't recommend her more. Get in touch, the results will encapsulate your day perfectly.'

HIGHLIGHT FILMS

Highlight films are a beautiful, shareable way to capture all the best bits of your wedding day.

It doesn't include audio but is made up of lots of 3 second moments and set to a beautiful soundtrack that reflects the energy of your day.

Highlight films also come with a second photographer, thrown in for free!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO BOOK YOU TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR WEDDING?

Pop me a message via the contact form to check that I have your date available. If I do, then I will send you an online contract and invoice for a £300 booking fee. Once these two things are completed, your booking will be confirmed. HOORAY!

 

I HATE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED AND I'M REALLY NERVOUS ABOUT THIS PART OF THE DAY.

Most of the couples that I work with will tell me exactly the same thing. Being professionally photographed isn't something that happens often and so it can be quite a surreal experience on a very full on day. My couples often say to me that they enjoy the couple shoot part of the day because they are able to take time out to chat and take stock of the importance of the day without lots of attention. I avoid stiff, awkward posing because I don't think that it will make you look your best. I will give you some direction but mostly I encourage interaction between the two of you so that the focus is taken away from the camera and put onto each other. In lots of my photos, you will see laughter and that's of real importance to me because it means that my couples feel relaxed. If you do feel very nervous, then I would recommend considering an engagement session. This will give you an idea of how I work so that you feel less concerned about it on the day.

 

DO YOU TRAVEL? AND IS THIS EXTRA?

Yes absolutely. I'm based on the edge of the beautiful Peak District but I travel up and down the country when i'm shooting weddings. Travel expenses for UK weddings are no extra charge.

 

WHAT ARE WE ALLOWED TO DO WITH OUR IMAGES?

The images that you receive on your USB are yours to do with as you please. You can print them, use them on social media, share them with friends and family or make each other matching t-shirts.

 

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?

Having shot in the UK for 10 years, I have lots of experience in dealing with wet and windy weather. There will always be something that we can do to work around whatever the weather does but generally I encourage my couples to seize the moment and embrace the weather.

 

HOW QUICKLY WILL WE GET THE PHOTOS BACK?

Each image is professionally edited in my own signature style, which takes time but I aim to send over the online gallery within 4-6 weeks.

 

CAN WE MEET YOU BEFORE THE DAY?

Booking a wedding photographer is a really personal choice and so I am more than happy to meet in person if you are local, or skype if you are further afield. I find that skype is just as great as meeting in person and you can drink tea from your favourite mug at the same time!

 

WE WENT TO A WEDDING WHERE WE STOOD FOR HOURS FOR PHOTOS. DO YOU DO THAT?

No, absolutely not. I will do some family line up shots but those are preplanned and completely your choice. I recommend limiting the list to 10 or less because you'll want to get on with chatting to your loved ones. Your couple shots will be creative but natural, so you won't feel awkward and I work quickly so that you are able to get back to the party.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE ILL ON THE DAY?

I would shoot your wedding in all circumstances unless I was hospitalised. In this case, I am part of an emergency network of professional photographers who would be able to photograph your wedding in my absence.

 

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE AND BACK UP EQUIPMENT?

I have professional insurance to cover every aspect of my business and I carry two cameras and a variety of lenses to each wedding so if there was any sort of failure on the day, I am still able to work.

Get in touch! i'd love to hear all about your plans
