I create natural, relaxed, fun photography that tells the story of your special day. I mix traditional portrait techniques with documentary and creative styles. Through my laid back approach I blend into the background documenting your day it as it happens, you’ll hardly notice I’m there. All with a smile and a helping hand I’m there for you throughout your wedding journey.

My photography style is very natural and relaxed. I mix traditional portrait techniques with documentary and creative styles. I will be visible but not controlling or intrusive. I will offer direction but not make you pose uncomfortably. I am there to document your day from start to finish capturing all the big moments, quiet ones, emotions and laughter that make your day special. Through pre-consultation I will have the knowledge of the days proceedings and assist in the timings so that no part of the day is missed.
I recommend meeting up for a coffee so we can go through all the details of your wedding, talk through any specific shots you would like and answer any questions you may have. If our locations are too far apart to meet up then we can use video call to make the initial contact.
Yes I absolutely take group photos, they are a very important part of your wedding photography but they do take time to organise so my advice is to limit them to the ones you really want. I recommend up to 8 family/group photos for an average 1.5hr reception drinks period, if you require more that’s completely fine but you’ll need to make sure you extend your reception drinks period accordingly.
During peak season please allow up to 4 weeks from the wedding day though I will always endeavour to get them to you as quickly as possible, on average it’s 2-3 weeks.
Each wedding is different therefore I cannot specify a certain number of photos, but on average a full day coverage will produce between 400-700 images.
The engagement shoot is a couple portrait session that lasts approximately 1 hour, in which we have lots of fun taking a variety of photos which will help you learn to pose in a way that suits you and reflects you as a couple. It’s a great chance for me to get to know you and for you to experience being in front of the camera, making you feel more comfortable on your big day.
Yes I always have two cameras that I use throughout the day and if something was to happen to either I would be able to shoot with just one no problem. I also carry lots of spare batteries, memory cards and anything else I might need!
It’s not necessary for me to visit a venue beforehand. Having shot many weddings I know what I’m looking for in terms of locations to use and I can scout this out very quickly on the day. But if you would prefer me to visit the venue with you I’m more than happy to.
Yes I am insured for public liability up to £1000000, though I have never made a claim or had a claim made against me.
Timing, timing, timing!!! Always allow more time than you think you’ll need as trust me the time disappears so quickly and you don’t want to be rushed trying to squeeze everything in. Weddings nearly always run behind schedule, and this is understandable when hosting a large group of people with lots of elements to the day. To assist with timings it’s best to prepare a schedule of the day and give it to important people who you require to help and tell them what you need them to do. Ushers often don’t know that they are meant to be ‘ushering’ the group as they are not told in advance. The more prepared and organised you are will ultimately lead to you having a better day and enable you to enjoy it more.
To secure your booking I require a signed wedding agreement and a deposit of 30%. (The remaining balance is due two weeks before the wedding date)
Thankfully this situation has never happened to me. However if prior to the wedding I discovered I would be ill for whatever reason then I would give you a full refund on your deposit and offer you a substitute photographer as a replacement to accept at your discretion. In the very unlikely situation that something happened on the actual day of the wedding then I would reach out to the many active wedding photography groups and seek an emergency replacement.
I’m a happy, optimistic person who always sees the glass half full and I will bring that energy to you and your wedding photography. I love to laugh and hopefully I will make you laugh along with me. And sometimes I even shed a tear behind the camera….those emotionally charged speeches always get me! And I always walk away from every wedding with a heart bursting full of love from the amazing experience I have shared with incredible people. It is a true pleasure and honour to photograph such a personal day in a couple’s life.
Lynsey is just simply fabulous! We received our photographs the other day and we sat and laughed, smiled and cried our way through them, she captured our day so beautifully. Lynsey, we can’t thank you enough!

We could not be happier with the photos that Lynsey took on our wedding day!! She is an amazingly talented photographer and incredibly professional! We have just received our leather bound photo album that is just beautiful- the quality is superb and it will be something we cherish forever! I couldn't recommend Lynsey enough, thank you so much for everything.
