Documentary wedding photographer in Leeds covering the UK & Europe



I'm so pleased that you're here - thank you for coming to take a look.

I’m Heather, a professional wedding photographer in Leeds where I live with my husband James, son Barney and highly strung cat, Stuart. I absolutely love being a Leeds wedding photographer! I like to travel all over Yorkshire (and further afield!) capturing all the the love and laughter in my magical storyteller style of photography.

As you'll see, I'm all about natural shots of fabulous folks in pretty places. I want to capture the  real moments and emotions  of your wedding day, and then I add my own sparkle to them. Unposed images are my favourites but I’ll also make sure we have time for some romantic couple portraits.

Some of the best feedback I've had is that couples didn't notice that I was there! This is due to me not asking too much of you on the day, other than to enjoy all that you have spent so long planning. I work quickly and will mix in between your guests like an old friend to capture all the honest moments.

I am a light lover and throughout the day I will be looking for opportunities to make best use of it. That might mean popping outside for a golden sunset or using my own lights to create dramatic effects inside and out.


I will create beautiful images that tell the story of your wedding from start to finish, and leave you with memories that you'll both want hanging all over your home. 

"We are absolutely blown away! The photographs are all beautiful! Heather completely managed to capture our day and gave us so many memories to look back on. She made us feel at ease from the first time we met her on our engagement shoot and on the day she was so professional. The final product is wonderful, she has perfectly captured our day in memories we can keep forever.

Jenny and Craig, Leeds, Yorkshire.

"Brilliant photos that really captured the spirit and atmosphere of the occasion. We love the way you have managed so unobtrusively to record the events in such an original and informal way. Thank you."  

ANDREW AND MARY, Leeds, Yorkshire.
