All travel is included within 90 minutes of my Essex base (further than this will incur travel and accommodation charges)
Online gallery presentation or your images, all processed in my signature style, available for easy, unlimited download, a bonus highlights slideshow to download and keep (for bookings over 4 hours), plus storage advice. The gallery includes a shop for you and your family and friends to purchase prints, albums, digital downloads and many other products for themselves. You are also granted full printing permission for your personal use.

Creating your own personal package allows for every couple outside the full day or half day packages to tailor their photography investment. If you don’t want prep included, for example, or, you are having a smaller, more intimate celebration, this flexibility would suit your plans. Alternatively, it also allows you to add extra hours on – if you are having an ‘at home’ wedding, an early ceremony or want extra evening coverage (perhaps for a sparkler exit or to ensure sunset portraits are included during the summer months). You can book what you think you’ll need and add onto it at any point in your planning!

If I’m booked on your date when you enquire, I have an utterly fabulous associate shooter on my team, Sarah, who’s been lead shooting weddings for me for several years. She’s a gifted photographer and a marvellous human! If you’d like to have Sarah shoot your wedding, you’ll liaise with both of us during your planning, talk to Sarah before hand to go over any questions about the day itself with her and then I’ll do the post process work on your images in my signature style and deliver them to you!


(Booking fee non-refundable after 14 days)

For weddings 6 hours and under, full balance will be due no later than 6 weeks prior to the wedding
For weddings 6 hours and over, two balance payments will be due, 25% of full balance 6 months prior to the wedding, remaining balance will be due no later than 6 weeks prior to the wedding



A member of my team will accompany me for the full coverage, starting with Groom prep whilst I cover Bridal prep. With a second shooter you’ll get each element of the day covered from two different perspectives and therefore, a wider variety of images will be included in your gallery. Two of us offers a much more well rounded story of your day with the added insurance that should anything unforeseen happen that means I can’t make it on the day, I have a trusted, experienced team member booked to document your wedding. If you want to have a chat about why adding a second shooter might work for you, do let me know.



I’ve mentioned I’m a book lover. I totally embrace the digital age we live in but I really, really believe that you cannot beat a book. They hold the promise, adventure, beauty and your wedding photgraphs deserve to be in one. You’ll find a wide range of stunning albums in your gallery shop, each one exquisitely printed on museum grade papers, with flat fold designs to show off your images without distraction. There’s a variety of contemporary colour and fabric choices from natural toned linens to vibrant and opulent velvets.
These are, without doubt, family heirlooms, to be cherished and poured over for years to come.
When I deliver your gallery, I’ll talk you through album desing options too. Your gallery will be very easy to use and you can opt to design it all yourself, or, I can deal with it all for you and have your album delivered to your door!
Prices start at £195

Let’s go somewhere you love.

Pre-wedding/engagment shoots are so much more than you think!
They are a chance to capture you both at a momentous point in your journey, to take a breather from the craziness of wedding planning and, if you are in the majority of couples who tell me they are uncomfortable in front of a camera, then this is the perfect opportunity for me to show you how easy it can be!
Many of my couples print and frame their favourites and have them on show at the wedding and on the day you’ll be utter pro’s at portraits!

£300 for weekend dates (limited)
£250 for mid-week dates



“she was unobtrusive, really chilled and when I saw my friends beautiful photographs, I booked her for our own wedding. She’s a documentary style photographer, which was really important to us, we wanted less ‘posed’ and more ‘spur of the moment photos’ and she delivered with the highest quality, precision perfect photographs!
The colours are so vibrant and rich and we are cracking up in almost all of them, mainly down to Charlotte’s sense of humour. She made two very awkward people feel so comfortable and we have her beautiful images adorned all over our home”.
