The right wedding photographer

You'll want to pick up your album time and time again and look back on the day with a feeling of warmth and joy and laughter so that you'll want to share with family, friends and most of all each other to keep the spirit of the day alive.

It can be one of the biggest regrets for couples that their photographer didn't capture all 'those' moments or they ended up not liking the photographers' pictures or even worse not liking the photographer!

Whether you want traditional, contemporary or natural reportage/documentary style photography it's important that your photographer suits your personality, has a rapport and totally meets your needs.

A great headshot

A great headshot will boost your confidence, can turn heads, can start a conversation, will encourage others to visit you social media platforms, to read your posts and engage, bring in new business.
Seeing someone else with a great headshot will make you look at your own and think, is there room for improvement? Could this be for me?
Does your company need a boost, bringing the workforce together again, making you proud of where you work.
Great headshots can do this for you.

A good headshot will show off your personality, the real you, your professionalism at work and capture your unique brand. Thus giving you a boost of inner confidence that we all lack now and again.
A good photo will drive others to your social media sites and help drive your business forward. It will help you focus on the journey ahead...

By finding the right photographer this will take away your fears.

"AHHH I hate having my photo taken!"

I don't know anyone who's ever come to me and said I just love having my photograph taken!
Let's face it unless you're a supermodel and earning a living from it I'm sure we all feel the same.

Its a process that can be made easy and good fun if you have the right photographer for you. I like my customers to feel comfortable in what they're wearing and at ease in my company, I don't ask them to pose in a way that would make them feel unnatural but also I am there to direct if they need a little help along the way.

Either way I want you to go away feeling that was refreshing and great fun and looking forward to seeing the end results.

A little about me

‘My Passion is People … I think if you want to take a great photo of someone, then it’s important to engage with them, make them laugh or at least not take yourself too seriously so if you need to break the ice, you do it with ease … as not all of us like having our photograph taken!
I’m not a comedian or good story teller or anything but just enjoy making everyone feel at ease.  I think because I was brought up in a warm, friendly ‘giving’ environment were it was normal to make those around us feel especially welcome, I learnt very early on that a smile and a bit of humour went a long way as people always responded to this in a positive way.
So this is how I’ve continued my career…

Kind words from valued clients

Hannah, Lee and family - Bride and Groom  Northamptonshshire

We had an amazing Wedding Day and Helen captured so many special moments of emotion, laughter and happiness that filled our day. When we look at the photographs, we are taken back to our wonderful day. We cannot thank Helen enough, as she met with us prior to our Wedding several times, made sure she was aware of what we would like. Helen was brilliant on our day and became 'part of' without us feeling as if we were having photographs taken. Our friends and family have commented on how much the photos have reflected our happy day and nobody was missed out.
We so hope there will be occasions when Helen will be our photographer in the future as we totally trust in her amazing skills and passion for her work

Vicki - Bride, Northamptonshire

Helen was the first photographer I saw and from that time I knew instantly that I wanted her.
Helen was always on the phone keeping in touch with us, visiting the church and golf club (where we held our reception).
The photos she took from the wedding day were fantastic. I can't thank Helen enough for the amount of work that she put in, from the 1st meeting to the final wedding book.
Not only was Helen my wedding photographer, I think in the end she became my friend as she was so easy to work alongside with

Debbie & Jerry - Bride & Groom Northamptonshire

We first met Helen at a Wedding Fayre. My fiancee and I were so relaxed in Helens company and loved her work on show, we both said "Helen's the one."
Over the coming months we have had several meetings with Helen and an engagement picture taken. Helen put us at our ease after 5 minutes, Helen has a knack of relaxing you to look your best. As our Big Day came, Helen took photos throughout the day from 9 till late evening. Helen had everyone at ease and captured moments we will cherish forever.
Feel Helen has become our friend, would not hesitate to recommend her work, a very hard working lady.
Many many thanks Helen


Shelley Knight - Author Writer Podcaster

I feel really uncomfortable having my photo taken but Helen always puts me at ease and captures authentic business head shots for me, as well as coming to the rescue each year with taking school photos of our children, cute couple images of my husband and I, and group photos of our large family.

Helen's photography is amazing in the way she manages to capture each and every one of our different personalities in a single moment in time. Highly recommend.


Lincoln Noel - Pianist and Piano Teacher

Had the pleasure of working beside Helen for a fabulous 70th Birthday Party at the Hilton Hotel in Northampton last night (I was on the Piano). Not only does she take exquisitely brilliant photos, her awareness and anticipation of the shot is top-drawer and she works with minimal fuss and disruption to the guests and the flow of the occasion. We have worked together numerous times with various challenges, subjects and characters with the same result; brilliant executed memories on film.


Judith Morris - Declutter Coach

I've known Helen for a while now and consider her portrait photography to be stunning. She always manages to convey the real essence of her subjects.

Hence, when I recently needed new profile photos for my business, Helen was the obvious choice. She completely understood my requirements. I help clients to declutter which is a sensitive business. Whilst I needed to look professional, it was also important that the photos showed my softer side, demonstrating that I am approachable and easy to talk to.

Within minutes of me adding the photos to Facebook the compliments were rolling in. Even people who had never met me were enthusing about how great I looked. In this case I really do believe that "a picture paints a thousand words".

I highly recommend Helen, not just for the finished product, but also for her friendly manner. No matter how nervous you might be having your photo taken, Helen will put you at your ease.

My approach is simple - I work in a very relaxed, natural style and aim to make it a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone.
