No 1 Wedding Fan

I love a good wedding, I’m actually quite renowned for not being very romantic, but when it comes to weddings I’m a sucker! I cry, I laugh, I chat to people, I chase after children, I dance…in fact if it wasn’t for the fact I take so many photographs, people might mistake me for a guest. The best photographs are the ones were people drop their guard, the ones were they don’t notice you are photographing them or that they feel comfortable with you, so don’t freeze or force an awkward smile. This shapes my approach to wedding photography, I try to melt away into the background so I can capture those beautiful, natural moments, or I chat to people and have a laugh so they relax.

My vision

I am a huge lover of natural moments, natural light and natural feelings…those things that you can’t fake. I had a clear vision in my head of what I wanted to achieve when I started Daisy Dots Photography, that was to be able to tell a true story of each wedding I photographed. I wanted to show the whole day in all it’s beauty, photographs that be passed down through generations so that their love story could last forever. Your day will pass in a beautiful blur, my promise to you is that I will give you lasting memories of the bits that you remember, but I will also show you the bits that you missed, those funny little moments, someone roaring with laughter, someone silently wiping away a tear, those raw emotions that make life beautiful.

To pose or not to pose, that is the question?

The majority (or all if you wish!) of your pictures will be natural and raw, people laughing, having fun or the odd tear. When it comes to the Bride and Groom shots, I do love the arty, slightly posed shots…I promise to try to make them fun and very quick! However they are entirely personal choice and everything I do is uniquely tailored to you. I am also more than happy to take any group shots that you would like. Whilst I love natural pictures, I think group pictures will always have a place in wedding photography. I love looking through my grandparents wedding pictures and seeing family groups together, however I know how much I hate having my picture taken, so I always try to keep these fairly informal and light hearted. The best group shots are always the outtakes when people think the shot is over, they laugh with relief and genuinely smile! Time-wise, I always keep this to a minimum, you have spent so much time and money planning your wedding, no-one wants to stand about for two hours waiting for pictures, least of all you!

Weddings are my number one passion and what I dreamt about photographing when I started Daisy Dots Photography. I have been incredibly privileged to have photographed many weddings and to have so many more booked in, I already have bookings for 2020 and am fully booked for some months of 2019! I live in Northamptonshire and my studio is based in Leicestershire, so lots of my weddings started off here, but I now travel all over the UK and abroad for destination weddings. I am also incredibly lucky to have a second base in Southern Ireland so my client range is huge!

Interested?

For me, getting to share some of the best moments of your lives is a huge honour and one I take seriously. I recommend meeting up before you commit to booking, it is always good to get a feel for each other as we will spend the most important day of your lives together! I make sure that I get to know you both before the big day, to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible!

I have a studio in Middleton, which is on the border of Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, it is stocked with chocolate, coffee and Prosecco! I can show you more examples of my work and the beautiful wedding albums etc that I have available. I am also happy to video chat if you aren’t local to me,(video chat is way out of my comfort zone but I’m getting used to it…I used to put on full makeup and get ready as if I was going on a date, nowadays I only promise to brush my hair!)
