Hello. Thank you for swinging by.
If we haven't met yet, the first thing I should mention is natural photographs are what I'm all about. Un-posed. Genuine relaxed smiles. Hand holding and Hugging photographs. Mixed with nature's beautiful backdrop of tall tree's and flowers in bloom.
My name is Hannah (my middle name is Elizabeth) and I'm a creative Wedding and Portrait photographer based in Garstang Lancashire, covering Lancashire, Cumbria, Lancaster, Preston, Blackpool, Manchester The Northwest and beyond.
I took my first photograph with my Mothers film camera when I was 9, and I've been captivated ever since. I'm abit of an old romantic, a sentimental creature, so my favourite photographs to take are the ones that capture real, raw emotion - I've also always lived in the countryside, surrounded by tree's and fields, so I'm naturally drawn to using nature as my backdrop whenever I can. At weddings or events, I always encourage portraits to be taken outside, in a pretty flower filled corner, in the shade of a mid summer tree or under the vista of a dramatic winter sky. For family portrait sessions, one of the wonderful bonuses of going for a stroll in a park or a woodland, instead of a white backdrop and studio lighting, is how much being outside puts everyone at ease. It also gives children space to explore and run and be themselves. Above all, I want to give you photographs that truely capture your family, interacting and having fun, and to give you a feeling of warmth when you look back at them.
I'd be lying if I said weddings arn't my favourite thing to photograph, I can't help but get excited about capturing all the emotions, the detailed photographs of the huge amount of effort and planning you'll have made to put your unique day together, the little glances shared between the Bride and Groom and all the smiles that will be joining you on the day. I'll spend the day blending into the background, capturing the day as it organically unfolds, alongside a collection of creative portraits of the Bride and Groom in some pretty spots around the venue.
No-one wants a stranger attending their weddings, so by the time your wedding day arrives, I'd love to have met you in person atleast once to talk about your wedding photographs, hear your plans (it's quite likely that I'll get excited!) and to take some free portraits of you both before the big day - this is a really great way to have a test run, get to know each other and to see what will work best for you on the day.
Mini Day £500, Part Day £750, Full Day £1000
