About

About me:

Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit my site! I’m Victoria & I’m a full time professional photographer. I specialise in Wedding & Portrait Photography and adore classical fine art portraiture, and natural, emotive photography. I am based in Shropshire and shoot beautiful & luxury weddings across the UK.

For me, being a photographer is a dream come true. Having been with my husband since I was 16, I am a true believer in romance and love. Together with our 2 children, and family of animals we live on our small farm in rural Shrewsbury. Family is everything to me, so being able to photograph weddings and families is an absolute joy.

When I am not photographing weddings or portraits, you will find me engrossed in family life at the farm, going for walks with my children & feeding the ducks, travelling with my family, and riding my horse.

My Photography Journey:

I have always had a keen interest in photography, and this interest turned into an intense passion shortly after having my children, so I set up in business in 2013 and have been shooting Weddings and Portraits ever since.

I have trained with some of the best photographers in the industry including international photographer & Nikon Ambassador Kate Hopewell-Smith; acclaimed photographer & author, Damien Lovegrove; and The Guild of Photographers Panel Member, Andrew Appleton.

I have photographed styled bridal shoots in Nevada, USA and Italy. I am a qualified wedding photographer with the Guild of Photographers and I have amassed a number of awards for my wedding and portrait work, including achieving ‘Top Ten Wedding Photographer’ with the Guild of Photographers for 2015.

My work has been featured on various wedding Blogs (including Boho Weddings), and I have published work in national magazines and press, and have featured work on ITV.

I have my own photography studio based on my farm in rural Shropshire, which is easily accessible to the wider Shropshire area, north Wales, Cheshire and the Midlands, where I focus on fine art studio portraiture.

My Approach:

For me it’s all about the light and I follow the light wherever I go. I would describe myself as an available light photographer. Where possible I love to use natural light in my photography, but as we are not always blessed with the best light in the UK, I often incorporate a combination of natural light and add some form of additional light where required. The addition of lighting is particularly important during winter weddings and in other low light situations.

My style:

I love classical fine art & exquisite portraiture, and documenting natural, expressive and emotive moments. I adore punchy black & whites, & vibrant editorial colours.

I see photography as an art form and I put my heart and soul into everything I photograph. For me, being a photographer is a dream come to true, and I couldn’t imagine ever doing anything different.
