Compare my honest, inclusive prices, happiness guarantee and over 300 glowing testimonials with anyone else you were considering to see why people choose to work with me.
My photoshoots for couples can be any combination of photos of you both together and individually, in any styles you like.
— Are the Images Really All Included?
Yes! Almost every other studio and photographer charges you per photo in addition to the shoot, meaning that end up spending hundreds of pounds more than you thought. All of my prices include all the photos we take, so there's nothing extra to pay on the day.
— What Happens on the Day?
When you arrive, we'll have a quick chat about what photo styles and ideas would best suit you and your needs. We'll do some warm-up shots to get you both comfortable in front of the camera, and then proceed with the shoot.
With each outfit/idea there'll be a different lighting setup, and you'll get a chance to review the pics we've just taken to make sure you're happy before moving on to the next look.
Most people I work with have never had a shoot before and arrive a bit nervous. That's normal! I'll give you tons of direction all the way through and make it very easy and fun.
— Do I Need a Make-Up Artist?
I do have a Couples Makeover package, but if it's important that the photos feel like 'you', then it's much better to keep it natural and do your own make-up. (By all means, arrange to visit a hair salon beforehand if need be.)
I've been doing this for 15 years and people always assume they'll benefit from a make-up artist, but as anyone who's had it done before will know, photographic make-up, no matter how expertly done, feels a lot heavier than you're used to, even a very minimal look. Doing your own make-up is not only much cheaper, but you will look and feel much more like yourself, and more comfortable and natural as a result.
In my experience anyone over about 35 tends to be consistently underwhelmed by professional make-up, no matter how expertly it is done, simply because it's not how they're used to looking. Natural looking photos with their usual make-up, on the other hand, they love.
— 100+ Images Seems a Lot...
Part of the magic of good photography is taking many variations of any one pose so that you have options when choosing ones to use.
Unless you’re a very experienced model, it takes time and lots of photos and direction from me to arrive at really good ones - particularly so when there are two of you in the photo. The photos always get better and better as the shoot goes on, as you relax and look more and more confident. So the packages are designed with this in mind, and it takes that long and many shots in order to arrive at the really great ones you’d choose to use.
Most studios only let you have a few of the photos, but I find that people really like having the outtakes too, as there are often lots they like and want to use. So you won't miss out on any - you'll get all the images we take, all included in the price with nothing extra to pay on the day.

These are photos of couples. We can also do individual shots of you both if you want, as part of the shoot. To see lots of examples of those, please see the individual galleries on the female and male pages.
