How would you describe your style?

I would say that my style is a mix of lifestyle and documentary photography. I love capturing those moments that you won't have seen or the ones that you want to re live over and over again.

I specialise in working with couples who don't like being photographed, those who know they want photos of the two of them on their wedding day but don't like the idea of having loads of posed shots. I make it easier for you by breaking your photos up in to different parts of the day and making the experience as natural and enjoyable as possible.

My couples always comment on how unobtrusive I am. Of course I direct them when we are photographing the couples portraits and the groups but otherwise I try and stay on the sidelines photographing your day just the way it is - perfect!

What do you love about weddings?

The joy everyone has for the bride and groom; the twists and turns throughout the wedding day; and being a part of a couples step into married life. My part is small; but I love being there to capture the moments that the couple will looks back on for a life time to come.

I have made many lifelong friends after photographing their weddings.

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

Deciding on a photographer is an important step in the grand scheme of wedding planning, after all you are trusting this stranger to capture your wedding day as it unfolds, and for those once in a life time moments, there is no pause button.

Now obviously this photographer needs to be within budget and available, this goes without saying. BUT it is worth considering the following:

You must be able to trust whoever you choose to capture your day; not only with respect to not missing those magic moments that will only happen once; i.e. Dads first glimpse of his Daughter in her wedding dress; the first kiss; the first dance; and so many more firsts.

But you also need to trust the advice given during the run up to, and even on The Day; be it about your wedding plan, posing or even tips on how to walk down the aisle; because it is fair to say; your wedding photographer will have been to more weddings than you!

Now, don't get me wrong; it is your day and the photographer is a hired service; but the difference between a good photographer and a fantastic photographer is that the latter will not just take photos; they will capture memories.

So, don't panic, don't rush; take your time and find one who fits with you!

Relaxed, funny and so professional

From the minute Amanda and I started chatting on our introductory Skype call, I know she would photographer our wedding. It is impossible to not like Amanda, she is relaxed, funny and so professional. We arranged our engagement shoot a few weeks before the wedding at our favorite forest where we regularly take our dog, Alfie. Despite the very early morning start, Amanda immediately put us at ease and we were soon getting used to having our photo taken. Ladies she has some really great tips on how to stand to make you look fabulous!! The day of the wedding was incredible, Amanda was with me for bridal prep and our second Bori with Richard to capture all the moments I was missing. Having Amanda with us for the day was honestly felt like sharing it with a friend. She has a real eye for catching a moment, or knowing when the light (and fog) is just perfect. We are so grateful to have such beautiful pictures to enjoy and share with our loved one! I have no doubt that we will work with her again - Amanda see you at our next celebration!! Thank you Amanda Xxx

Couldn't have been better

Amanda did a brilliant job and completely understood what I was looking to achieve. We didn’t want to spend the entire day posing, so most of the pictures are lovely and natural, but she got excellent posed shots as well, despite keeping that part to a minimum. She blended into the day really well, was very discrete, but got the guests to do what she needed when she needed them in place. Couldn’t have been better!

Her photos are sheer perfection

My husband was looking for a photographer for our wedding and came across Amanda. She came very highly rated and we wondered whether we could book someone who looked that amazing and talented. She has the most beautiful website and a great selection of images for you to browse and really get a feel for her work. My husband decided to set up a meeting. She met us with her husband at our local pub and even bought us a drink! After showing us everything she could do for us, she left us to talk and decide what we wanted to do. Not only did we book her services, we made friends with her and her husband and have since the wedding been out to see them again. On the wedding day Amanda was amazing, she had some challenges with our wedding being outside, with tipis, our dog, and a horse drawn carriage. She even took some amazing photos with smoke canisters which was incredibly cool! Safe to say that the photos are sheer perfection, we couldn't be happier and I so glad that she captured our special day with such style. Thank you Amanda.

A wonderful Photographer

Amanda was a wonderful photographer! She was the recommended photographer for our venue, which worked really well because she knew her way around it well and was able to take amazing photos. Not only did she get to know my husband and I before the wedding, she also interacted with our guests and made them feel comfortable having their pictures taken. She wasn't a stranger who was just taking photos of our wedding-it felt like she was a part of it! :)
