Welcome to my 'About Page' (she says cringing!) I hate this bit! Oh well, here goes...
Maxi Photography is my baby (Mel) and I am very privileged to be invited to be part of the biggest day of most people's lives; their wedding day. I LOVE WEDDINGS. I still get excited about every aspect of my couples big day and love having the opportunity to document the story of the day to be relived for years to come. I do officially have one of the best job's in the world!
I am a qualified Licentiate (LBIPP) of the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP), assuring photographic standards and professionalism. I am also a member of the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP). I believe every day is a school day and there is always something new to learn and where possible attend industry conventions and take courses to keep up-to-date and stay current.
In addition to wedding photography, I am regularly commissioned to shoot portraiture photographs, including lifestyle, family, pets and events.
We are fully insured and always carry spare equipment.
We have been shortlisted as 'Regional Finalists' in 'The Wedding Industry Awards' for the past consecutive three years of 2017, 2018 and 2019.
"Creative, modern yet timeless wedding photography"
My wedding photography will capture your day in a natural and stylish way, whilst I blend into the background. "We hardly knew you were there but your organisation helped our day run smoothly – we couldn’t have done it without you!" (Chris & Liz Hall).
A wedding pre-shoot allows us to get to know each other a little better, putting you at ease in front of the camera whilst I learn how you interact as a couple. We will also pop along to the venue, to discuss those key shots and how we can achieve them; doing this before the day means that I know exactly what you want, leaving you to just enjoy yourselves when the time comes. On the wedding day, from hair and make-up I’ll be there capturing those special moments; the laughs, thoughts, tears. The boys don’t get left out either – an assistant photographer will be there with them too, so together you will be able to relive the day and have a glimpse into each other’s preparations! Together, myself and my assistant will capture beautiful images throughout the day and only after the first dance will we then leave you to party the night away.
For those other special moments you would like to capture in life, from bumps to babies, portraits and celebrations through to your favourite pet, I would love to photograph them for you! Location shots are always a winner - what better way to capture images naturally than in a location you are familiar with, love and cherish! Give me a call so we can have a chat through what you hope to achieve!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
