Hi! I’m Jane and I’m a Lancashire wedding and newborn documentary photographer, based in the awesome village of Langho in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire. But....... I shoot weddings all over the North West. I am originally from Ulverston in Cumbria. That is where I spent my amazing childhood. I often visit there though as most of my family are still there.
Just above is a photograph of my family and I on holiday in Tenerife, back in 2016. If you look closely, you can see the reflection of my iPhone and selfie stick in my sunglasses. This is the only way I seem to appear in photographs nowadays! I promise I won't use one with you.
Anyway, I live in a beautiful bungalow with my lovely husband, our 2 gorgeous daughters, our gorgeous dachshund, our cute Labrador, our mental Collie and our crazy Bengal cat! Oh, lets not forget Thor and Goldie, the fish. Thor was named by me. Unfortunately Loki has snuffed it. Goldie was named by my eldest. She wasn't happy with my suggestion of Odin.... Spoiltsport or what?
My favourite things in the world are meeting new people and coffee. Did you try the Christmas selection in Starbucks? Wow! Moving on..... When I’m not shooting weddings you’ll find me doing something with the girls and Mummy friends or we will be out in the country with the pooches.
I couldn’t live without music, Marvel films and prosecco (or gin). Sorry, did I say that? I meant my family! I spend a lot of time laughing and nothing makes me happier than exploring new places with my family.
My love of people watching is what got me into wedding photography. If you ever see me in a restaurant, I try and sit with my back to the wall so that I can watch everyone. I’ve been a photographer for (officially) just over 2 years and I’m having such a blast. The best thing about being a wedding photographer is that I get to shoot people in love and work for myself. Working for myself means I can fit it all around my family.
My couples are super relaxed, and the last thing they want is a photographer who takes over their wedding day and want me to act more as an extra guest.
My wedding photography style is relaxed and natural. I capture all the special and joyful moments, including little details. I love details! This lets you get on with having an awesome time. For me, the best bit about a wedding day is the couples portraits, because it’s a chance for you to have a breather and for me to be creative.
Your wedding is all about having a wonderful time with your favourite people. You don’t care about formalities or worrying about the little things that don’t matter – you just want to eat, drink and be merry with besties.
So there you go. I am a family orientated, animal loving, presecco/coffee drinking, Marvel loving ex Cumbrian.
*Note, my dogs even wear Marvel bandanas. But don't they look awesome?*
If this sounds like you, and you don’t think I’m a total nutter (or maybe you do and you like it!) then get in touch!
I should add, I also love to photograph newborns, families and horses. I have separate pages dedicated to just them.
