who? me? well now you ask…
I’m Louise – second name’s Emily, in case you were wondering where I got the inspiration for my business name! ORIGINAL I KNOW. I’m a laughter loving smiley wedding photographer and I can’t even tell you how much I bloody love being part of people’s best days. I have been so lucky to have been involved in some absolutely amazing wedding days, from back garden weddings to castles. The common thread being my awesome couples who just want to have an amazing day with their friends and family, and to me, that’s what it’s all about – and photographing it is my actual pleasure!
yes but what do you do?
Well, I’m a fun wedding photographer and I focus almost entirely on candid moments so you can focus on enjoying your day. I love looking out for the little stories that unfold throughout the day that might not be about the wedding at all, but the relationships between the two of you and your families and friends. I love photographing connections, loving and touching moments, the emotional and raw moments, and mostly the hilarious and fun moments. A wedding day has it ALL and that’s why I love them so much.
And in 10 years time when you’re looking at your photos I don’t want you to remember me standing in front of you telling you what to do, I want you to remember how that belly laugh felt, or when that tear was lovingly wiped away, and I want you to feel so glad that I was there at that moment to catch it, naturally.
I want to give you the story of your day, as it happened, in all it’s glory.
I live in Dorset with my bf (I know, what am I TWELVE?) and our 3 absolutely excellent, hilarious and exhausting small people. I spend my entire life thinking about what I need to get for dinner and when my next sleep is coming! Other than the days I drink gin and then I think a lot less about those things!
I’m vegan and trying very hard to be as eco friendly as I can. My absolute idol is that woman who got through a whole year and only created a mug full of rubbish. OK she’s not my idol, Rik Mayall is, I’m not sure on his eco credentials.
I love drinking tea, gin and lemon squash and I drink a mixture of those every day. Not in the same glass.
I LOVE Netflix. I mean what did I even watch on tv before Netflix? BBC dramas… but still, they didn’t fill as many hours as Netflix can. Schitt’s Creek is my favourite, followed closely by Crazy Ex Girlfriend and The Good Place. But who even are you if you haven’t seen Tiger King?!?
And I love my job. I love that when all the months of planning the build up and the excitement of the wedding day is done, what is left is my gift to you. The chance to relive it again and again and again. And I think that’s pretty special actually!
I love long romantic strolls…

AMAZING!!! Louise was so friendly and lovely! Very quick responses. We came across Louise on Facebook. Her candid style caught our eye. She completely didn’t disappoint. Louise captured our day and told the story through her photographs. We were incredibly chuffed when we first saw the pictures. We didn’t even know Louise was there on the day. Very professional! I highly recommend Louise for any of your photography needs, be it wedding or family shoots! We look forward to booking Louise in the future again!….maybe renewing our vows!! 🙂 Thanks again! xx
