Hello There!

I'm Karen, I specialise in Wedding and Business Brand Photography.

Everyone has a why for the things they are passionate about and mine is preserving moments in time. I believe the people in our lives and our memories are everything

Based in Leigh on Sea, Essex I also travel to surrounding counties.

My Why

From a young age I always had a camera. I was the one to be taking family portraits and landscape photos on holiday. The truth is that it took a few more decades for that passion to turn into a business for me. I didn't have my latest equipment when my daughter was a baby or before my father passed away. The sadness at not having personally taken beautiful images of them during those moments in time is a passion which fuels me every time I pick up the camera... to ensure I can capture the best images for others. Those clarity of photos, the moments we all want to look back on fondly.

Moments in time can be recalled through the medium of photography more vividly than our minds can always recall. Photographic evidence, reminders of the past are truly priceless. Professional images standout for business owners who are looking to attract their ideal clients. They too capture a moment in time, in one's progression to stand proud and stand out from the competition.

I would like to help you capture those special moments in your life, whether that may be your wedding, your growing family, or to work with you to elevate your business brand with a beautiful portfolio of images.

Across genres, these are all passing moments in life that deserve professional imagery, whether the intention is to promote yourself or preserve your memories!

What can I offer you?

I have been a professional photographer for the past 4 years and attended numerous wedding venues within Essex and many further afield.

I have assisted local businesses in elevating their brand and products. I work with my clients to produce a gallery of on-brand images to update their websites, social media & printed promotions, to attract their ideal clients & make more money!

I work with local families to capture moments throughout their family life, from birth through to the teenage years. I enjoy getting the best side out of the children, what ever their age.

Wedding Packages:

When a bride is having a quiet moment with her mum on her wedding day I will be there to unobtrusively capture that. When the groomsmen are having a bit of banter, those exchanged looks will be among the memories I deliver back to you.

Your guests will be having as much fun as you but you can't always take it all in on the day. I record your wedding in a story telling way and deliver back the moments sometimes you miss yourselves.

I aim to be in the background mostly providing candid, documentary style coverage of your day, the beauty is in capturing the day as it unfolds. I'm always friendly to your guests when approached and enjoy nothing more than catching their moments on form, laughing and enjoying their day as much as you!

Very much a people person I thrive on being behind a lense to capture those moments throughout a day where connections are made and moments of emotion are shared.

I have worked with many individuals who are nervous at the thought of having a photographer present and I promise to make you feel relaxed. I am always about providing a friendly warm experience.

Full or half day coverage, at times to suit your day. Beginning with Bridal / Groom Prep or just before the ceremony. I supply a comprehensive gallery of candid moments throughout the day. I will also take family formal (group photos) after the ceremony if this is something you choose.

There is no upper limit to the number of photos I deliver. But if you are having a smaller wedding or just require a few hours coverage of the service and some formal or relaxed photos after the ceremony.

Please take a look at my wedding gallery in the Portfolio section & fill in my contact form if you'd like to check availability, request a quote or arrange a call.

Brand Photography:

I have been actively working in the field of business and personal brand photography for the past 3 years. I serve my local community by providing professional imagery which can be used on social media, websites and print. I work in a collaborative way to hone in on the brand specifics for the business. This may mean photographs which will be centered around physical products, or which tell the story of a service based business.

Whether the shoot takes place at an office, home or on location I provide a bespoke gallery of on brand images which can be used to promote products, services, staff & business owners to full effect.

I provide full or half day business brand shoots. For individuals only requiring headshots I have a home studio based in Leigh on Sea, Essex. Or for larger numbers of staff I can travel to a place of work or outside location to accommodate the backdrop you prefer.

Family Photography:

I can come to your home or an outside location of your choice to capture your families images. Maybe you would like some relaxed portraits to give as a gift or maybe you prefer some at home journalistic, day in the life style photos?

Whether you would like images at the seaside, in the woods or anywhere in between I am happy to travel to locations in the Essex area to capture your family doing what you do best, being yourselves and interacting with each other. I'm equally happy taking natural unposed pictures for those who are camera shy, as I am capturing posed shots for the more confident among you! You do you and I will work with that. Please fill in my contact form and we can discuss the moments in time you would like to preserve further.
