Event Photography / Event Photographer

As an event photographer I cover many areas within the commercial world. Be it a corporate event with key note speakers to fun days or relaxed training days, I cover them all. The most essential part of event photography is to capture the mood and expressions of the guests. Given only one chance to get this right, we shoot quickly and unobtrusively to capture the event as naturally as possible.

very event is different, but no matter how big or small your event, you will need a photographer that can adapt and produce images quickly and creatively. 


You’re more than just a face…
As an actor, presenter, entertainer, or business professional, you'll know that your headshot is often the first point of contact for employers and associates. It is integral to ensure you make the right impression. You want an image that truly captures you, not just aesthetically but emotionally too.
The shoot…
Will be informal and relaxed. A session typically lasts around 90 minutes and can include as many dress changes and breaks as required. 4 changes of outfit is usually more than enough though. Sometimes, having too many changes can disrupt the flow.
I recommend clothing/tops that are quite plain and don't distract away from 'you'. Simple layering sometimes works well. It might also be worth considering what job/roles you'll be applying for, or how you want to be represented. Most of all, make sure you bring an item that is typically 'you' and is something that you feel good in.

I normally take about 250 images and I will send a dropbox file so you can then select the images you want to proceed with. These will be returned to you within 5 working days (more images can be edited at an additional cost). I do offer a 24 hour express service, if you need them urgently.
When you've made your selection, the shots will undertake a slight edit and will be subtlety re-touched, to ensure all your best features shine through, giving you an image that makes the most of your unique look and personality. Then, if you want any further alterations i.e. airbrushing just let me know and we can discuss further.

Capture those special moments


Capture the beauty of your family and the connection you have, all in a beautiful setting, a venue of your choice or in the comfort of your own home. 

Stunning Lifestyle outdoor portraits.

I photograph in a local park in Didsbury which has forest settings and can be quite magical with the different seasons offering backdrops from autumn leaves, daffodils, bluebells, on occasion a blanket of snow and babbling streams. The children love to throw the leaves, paddle their toes in the streams, splash in puddles and make fairies in the snow. The whole photography session is relaxed and fun.

Natural moments caught in your own home

Feel like a Celebrity in the comfort of your own home "Hello Magazine style"!!

I come with 26 years worth of experience so there are lots of creative ideas and not to mention patience. The kitchen can be the heart of the house so it can make for a great backdrop, the living room can be the perfect place to get cosy and have some wonderful cuddly pictures. Perhaps the children have a colourful room with some interesting toys they want to show off or maybe some outfits they want to dress up in. I do have three children, two now grown up so I know they don't always want to be photographed, I do go to all lengths, a game of hide and seek or allow them to be the photographer so eventually I do capture them whether they are aware or not.  

My passion is to capture these great moments.

Children come with all different moods my job is to make sure every moment is snapped up!!

Creating a portrait is magical because you never lose that moment.

I will provide you with high quality professional photographs that capture those special moments that will last a life time.

I aim to work with you to plan your shoot and offer an airbrushing service, extra editing if needed, printing and a framing for those shots worth sharing.

Your sitting fee, images and USB stick are all included in the service you require, so there are no nasty surprises, no hard sell and no choosing your images.

Please contact me (Samantha) on 07969144654 or email me at  I will be happy to chat and discuss your requirements.



Your day just the way you imagined. .


I will capture every magical moment of your big day. As you leaf through your album you will be excited to see your story unfold.

Slipping into the dress of your dreams , mum, sister or friend buttoning you up from the back, sending you off to your new start in life.

Flower girls, giggling, helping out, trying on grown up shoes, an adorable child filled moment. A child fills a frame with love and joy!!

Leaving your house on the arms of dad or sharing a moment with mum, this is it the page that can evoke a tear.

Ahh...this is when you step out of the car a moment that will be yours and only yours. Then into the church you go, capturing your fathers emotions as he looks at his beautiful daughter ready to hand her to the groom.

Your handsome husband to be will be waiting nervously and proud. These moments you will treasure, for the way he looks at you will be like falling in love again.  You will be glad to relive this one moment again and again.

Exchanging vows and rings, every emotion exchanged will be caught and treasured for life bringing memories flooding back.

The moment after your first kiss you will head down the aisle, smiles bursting, hearts leaping and guests cheering, probably the best moment of your whole day! This is the page of your future together.

Post ceremony portraits are a "must do" even though you will want to chat to guests and get to the bar, these are the photographs you will want to hang on the wall. You can sneak off and share a few intimate moments together and enjoy each other as husband and wife.

Your first dance is equally as intimate and a photo or ten can capture the love shared with a giggle. a kiss, head on the shoulder or maybe a movie moment where you get to be thrown into the air!!

Every moment is your fairytale and I am there to record and capture the magic of your wonderful day.

We parents spend a lot of time, effort and money on making our child's birthday earth the most perfect day - entertainers, magic shows, face painting... the list goes on! But we rarely have good pictures to show. 

I love catching the emotion, the drama and the laughter and I strive to tell the story of your event.

If I don’t need a lie down after photographing a children’s party, then I haven’t done a good job. I throw myself into it. It’s a blast and I can get some great photographs which always seem to make me laugh and smile when I edit them.


"My passion for photographs is strong as ever. As I have watched my three children grow up and spend hours flicking through their baby books or giggling at seeing them dress up and dance. I know that what I have created for myself and my many clients is a very special service that will be truly treasured by generations to come."
