About the 17th January 2022…
… I was at The Mount Hotel in Wolverhampton (what a beautiful venue by the way!) for The Wedding Industry Awards or #TWIA22 for short! I was a regional finalist for Wedding Photographer of the year… How flipping amazing is that?! Also rather nerve wracking but I have got to say, it was such a great night. The girl in the green dress… is me!!!
I might not have won but it was still a lot of fun and an honour to get to the finals. I got all dressed up with Mr B, had a few wines, and had fun with one of my fav suppliers! In all honesty, I win everyday. I love this job so much and when a couple choose me to be part of their day and capturing so many wonderful moments and memories means everything #happydance
I want to thank you all so so much for all the love you sent yesterday, it mean a lot. Also, a huge thank you to my amazing couples who voted for me, you guys to me to the regional finals! One final thank you to my family and friends, your continued support keeps me going.
To my past, present and future couples, I flipping love you all and can’t wait to capture more memories like these beautiful ones.
Right 2022… let’s go!!!
Ps… my voter feedback is below and it makes me smile sooo much
Leanne was amazing from start to finish, our wedding was postponed twice. Leanne was supportive and compassionate when we were changing dates. Leanne covered our full day from when I was getting ready to after the first dance. Myself and my partner aren’t a fan of photograph’s and find it quite awkward! Leanne made us comfortable and guided us for our photos and then captured the most amazing natural photos. Our photos bring our day back to life and I still can’t stop looking at them. Amazing!
Leanne was absolutely amazing, her ability is second to none, her professionalism is off the scale and she was an integral part of our day even over and above her photographic duties! The photos were truly amazing, completely captured our day in the best way and she is gifted in making photos remain natural. She was a sound board for me on the day, a calm face in the crowd to reassure me during the service and a helping hand for helping with our nieces and finishing touches to the day.
Leanne was so understanding of our requirements for our wedding photos, she was so approachable when we were discussing our wedding day and really made us feel at ease and that we were in safe hands. She also gave us some really good ideas that we hadn’t considered, so we used them. Our guests loved her lovely friendly manner, as we had guests in wheel chairs. The photos well what can I can say they were a ‘wow’ moment when we saw them, theyexceeded our expectation and the app used is great easy
Leanne is professional but friendly and warm, she was absolutely fantastic at our wedding, she made me feel at ease completely and she captured so much emotion in her photos! I am so happy with the images we received from her!
Leanne was fantastic. Embraced the personal aspects of our wedding and came up with ideas. Made everyone at ease particularly the children.
Leanne was professional and understanding from start to finish having my wedding cancelled due to covid she kept in touch supported me and was willing to adapt to all the covid restrictions that were asked of her.my 30 guests were put at ease and you would never know from the photos we were in a middle of a pandemic.i have so many lovely pictures , especially as Leanne was aware of my mom who has terminal cancer she has captured special memories for me to treasure all my guests loved leanne
Leanne is amazing person and photographer couldn't of had anyone better she really is outstanding
After 4 postponements we decided to forego the traditional ceremony and pomp, instead chose an intimate legal ceremony at the local registry office. Leanne captured our day perfectly and for free which is above and beyond. We have our celebration later this year on what should've been our first anniversary and Leanne will be part of our day again and we can't wait.
Leanne was professional and friendly and left us feeling at ease from the moment we got in touch with her. She listened to what we wanted and even set up a meeting before taking our booking to ensure we felt comfortable with her, which only made us want to hire her even more. We could tell she was interested in capturing our best photos rather than just another job. Couldn’t recommend highly enough
Leanne was thoughtful, clearly very knowledgeable and experienced. She managed to take hundreds of fantastic photos and yet was always inconspicuous. She worked tirelessly throughout the day to make sure she captured everything. On top of this the quality of the photos was very good and edited well. She is also a very approachable and friendly person.
Leanne went above and beyond on our day! To the rainbow navy dress (we are a gay couple & matched our theme) to the different shots we wanted captured beautifully! She was not just a photographer but a guest and we couldn’t be more thrilled with our choice!
Leanne has a warm personality and it really shines through in how she interacts with the whole wedding party, particularly getting the children on side so they enjoy it rather than endure it. And the photos are just stunning and she makes it look so effortless.
I struggle with my mental health, I have Borderline Personality Disorder. This gives me a very poor view of myself. Leanne really understood this and took it on board. I was extremely anxious about seeing the photos convinced I’d hate how I looked, but she did such a beautiful job! Very reassuring and understanding also. I’d definitely recommend her.
Amazing photographer, felt like I've known her for years. Remained calm and very helpful in a genuine medical emergency. So glad she was there.
Leannes communication in the lead up to the wedding was excellent. We knew exactly what was happening and when for on the day. On the day of the wedding, everybody commented on how friendly leanne was and helpful, she went above and beyond the photographer role to help things run as smoothly as possible. We are over the moon with the final photos. Would highly recommend.
We could not of asked more from Leanne throughout the process. She sat down with use before hand to discuss what we wanted and made suggestion that made the pictures of a our wedding day even more special. The wedding day she got some amazing photos without us really noticing and got some lovely natural photos. After leanne went above and beyond to get out photos to us in a timely manor. I like the picture on USB so could make most of all the pictures from out day. Felxable with date changes.
I would score Leanne 11 if I could. One of our bridesmaids is autistic & Leanne came to our house to meet her before the wedding so she wouldn't be confronted with a stranger taking pics on the day. This meant the world to us. Leanne is flexible, supportive and has become a family friend. I would have no hesitation recommending her. We are over the moon with our photos. She was the best decision we made and I would love to see her work recognised with this award. She deserves it!!!
From the day we met Leanne to our wedding day, she was very involved and nothing was too much trouble. On our special day we would of absolutely lost without Leanne. She was there to wipe tears, get anything that was needed or missing and help me get into my dress. I just couldn’t thank her enough. She helped keep me and my mum calm on a manic, and little distressing morning. And not to mention, the fabulous photos to remind us of our special day.
Leanne was amazing, can’t speak highly enough! .. if you are looking for someone to capture all the special moments of your day which is all natural and even on the group photos she made it fun and felt like an enjoyable part of your special day then Leanne is perfect. No stress, great fun and perfect photos x
Leanne captured all photographs we wanted on our day and more. She is so lovely and friendly and fit in to our day so smoothly, making sure we had everything we wanted and in the best way possible. We are so thankful for Leanne.
Leanne was so friendly with all who attended, and professional. She did everything I asked and more.
Leanne was just fabulous ! She listened, laughed and slotted perfectly with us into our big day. She was a delight to everyone and made everyone feel comfortable. She was just the best I couldn’t have asked for any better at all
