Barbara was a wonderful wedding photographer. She and her assistant were like ninjas, but somehow managed to capture all of the most incredible moments. It was an absolute bargain for photos that we will have forever. Thank you, Barbara. Total class xHelen & Carlo
Combining a slightly film-like, documentary approach with an eye for interesting or unusual compositions, my work is ideal for clients who want a natural and unposed series from their day.
Lovely words from previous clients
Barbara did an absolutely fantastic job at our wedding, she caught every special moment that we could hope for. So friendly and extremely professional. My wife and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending.Tim & Chanelle
Barbara is incredible! Not only did she capture all the important moments, she was so discreet that we barely noticed she was around. Her photos have that rare combination of life meets art – they are like canvasses, which capture the moods and the characters, but also beautifully composed, enhancing the moment itself. Thank you so much for your fantastic photos and also for being so flexible to our requirements!Aishani & Christian
Thank you for fitting in so well on our wedding day, I felt like I hardly saw you but hundreds of beautiful photos later is proof you captured everything we had imagined and made some incredible images of our memories that we can keep forever. We are so delighted with all that you did for us, thank you for being such an amazing talent and thank you for listening to our ideas! Keep up your super work we will be spreading the Asboth word Lots of love xxxxxSteph & Chris
What to expect if you book me
I mostly shoot documentary - unposed, real interactions between guests. My style really shines when I leave guests alone to just enjoy the party without asking them to pose for me. Past clients have often mentioned how great it was that I was like a casual, friendly guest, yet all their special moments were captured!
The only time I will guide you slightly is during a short time to grab some portraits of just you two - usually after everyone's had a chance to grab a few drinks and relax. If we're outside and the weather is good then we can do this around sunset to get the most flattering light, but I also happily improvise to make use of interiors, sparkler light and anything else we have available. I'm a very experienced portrait photographer so this is my favourite part.
To make you the most comfortable during your day with me around, I need to get to know you a little bit, how you met, what you're planning and what kind of couple you are, so that's why the pre-consultation is so important when you contact me. Above all, the goal is for you to have fun with me, because the best photos will come if we both like each other's vibe. If you like the vibe of this page, for example, we're off to a good start so click that Contact button and let's talk! :-)
Bookings start at £250 for hourly bookings (minimum 2 hours).
Full days, from getting ready to first dance (plus I usually hang out on the dancefloor for a bit, for party snaps), are £1,500.
Travel time and costs are included within 50 miles of Banbury (OX16).
Micro wedding or elopement?
I may be able to create a custom package for you, so ask away!
Engagement / pre-wedding shoot
Try me before the big dayWhy not book an engagement shoot with me to get a feel for how I work without committing to a wedding booking yet? I will be happy to credit part of the fee back to you if you book the full wedding. We can go to a cool location, and take some portraits without the time pressure of a wedding day. You can even use some of these photos for Save the Date cards or signing boards at your wedding reception.
