"You’ve made us, me especially,
feel really special."
Charlotte was so incredible as our wedding photographer. From the moment we enquired I knew she’d be perfect for us. Neither of us are a fan of the posed snap and she guided us perfectly all day (even after we’d had a tipple or two!). She sent us a sneak peek the next day and it was so magical I couldn’t express how grateful I was. It’s made me so excited to see the album. Just from Charlotte’s energy I knew she would capture our day as we wanted it to be, ensuring all the tiny details we did were remembered. She was incredible with us and our guests, especially the children! Lovely lady, worked so well and professionally with our videographer. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Thank you Charlotte.

"We are so grateful for the wonderful photos."
Charlotte was amazing, she was so accommodating and understanding when we needed to push our wedding date back due to covid. From the initial meeting, she was professional and enthusiastic, which really put us at our ease. She captured our day so beautifully and we are so grateful for the wonderful photos!! 100% recommend Charlotte if you’re looking for a 5* photographer.

"Amazing photos which perfectly captured our day!"
We booked Charlotte after our wedding was rearranged due to covid and I am so pleased because everything from her communication, to the package, to the photos themselves way surpassed my expectations and previous photographer. I adore Charlotte’s style of photography and she has captured absolutely every moment of our day but during the wedding she blended in perfectly, no one felt like they were being photographed so the photos are so natural and we can really see people enjoying the day as it actually happened. She was also incredible at advising us on the bride and groom photos, I was worried I would be terribly awkward during those but she was brilliant. I would 100% recommend Charlotte and having an extra shooter was brilliant too.
APRIL & SIMON
After receiving your enquiry, I will send you my brochure and we can have a video call to get to know each other and ask me any questions you may have.
Choose the package that's right for your and I will set you up in my diary. Your invoice, contract and questionnaire will all be easily accessible online from the link you will receive.
If you've opted for a pre-wedding shoot, we'll book this in before your big day. I will advise on the best time of year (and time of day!) to do this, and can also suggest beautiful locations I've photographed at before.
Around 6 weeks before your wedding, I'll contact you to arrange your pre-wedding consultation. This is where we go through all the details of your day and any photo requirements you have.
YOUR BIG DAY
Relax and enjoy one of the most exciting days of your lives! I will be there capturing the moments that matter for you to remember.
Your photos will be ready to view 6-8 weeks after your wedding, in a private online gallery. I also send out a sneak preview a few days after the wedding so that you have a small selection of photos to share with loved ones whilst you wait.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How far in advance should I contact you?
There is no time limit on when you need to book me by, but I take most of my bookings around a year before the day.
What is the charge for traveling?
Travel is included within 30 miles of Burntwood (40p per mile thereafter). Depending on the travel time, an overnight stay in a hotel may be required - contact me to check if you're venue is more than 1.5 hours from Burntwood.
What style of photos do you take?
I take a mixture of candids and posed photos, as requested by the couple. I'm relaxed and photo-journalistic for most of your big day, capturing lots of natural candid moments, but I'm also happy to help organise those all-important group photos with your family and friends. I use fun prompts during your couple's photos to get natural expressions, smiles and laughs!
What kind of equipment do you use?
I only use professional-level Sony full frame cameras, prime lenses and lighting equipment.
How do you deliver our photos?
In your own private online gallery! From here you will be able to view and download all of your beautiful photos, share them with your family & friends, and purchase prints and wall art. You will also receive a USB containing all of your high resolution images.
When will we receive our photos?
I aim to deliver all photos 6-8 weeks after your big day.
How many photos will we receive?
This depends on a variety of factors, such as number of guests and if you are having lots of unique events during your wedding. You will receive a minimum of 400 photos for full day coverage, but likely many more!
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
Yes, I have a network of fellow photographers that I can contact in case I am unable to photograph your big day for you.
What does 'full day coverage' include?
My full day packages cover 9 hours of your big day, from prep to first dance. This is normally enough time to start 2 hours before the ceremony and finish half an hour after the first dance. If your day is going to be much longer than this, or you need extra coverage for your evening reception, just let me know and I can put together a quote for additional hours as required.
How do you work?
I'm really friendly and relaxed, which helps everyone feel at ease whilst I'm snapping away! I only gently pose people if I see an opportunity for a great photo, and of course for your formal photos.
