I suppose I should start by saying that I’m a professional photographer based in Hampshire in the South of the UK.  I am situated near Southampton but am privileged to provide Wedding and Family Photography throughout Sussex, Surrey, Wiltshire and Dorset.  One of the biggest perks of my job is seeing new places; I love to travel and I feel exceptionally lucky when couples invite me to photograph further afield – nowhere is off limits!

Professionally speaking, I am absolutely at my happiest when clients and guests at weddings take the time to tell me how effortless the photography was or how I put them at ease and made them laugh. When someone says ‘I hardly saw you but you were everywhere,’ or ‘I normally hate having my picture taken but that was fun!’ well, that is just the best feeling.   I guess I should also add that even more than photography, I love people.   Building relationships and connecting with my clients is essential to creating the honest, creative, images that my clients love.

When I don’t have my camera in hand, you are most likely to find me walking in the woods or on the beach with my husband and our two children; if we can marry it up with some yummy food, I’m even happier.  I adore reading, romantic movies and log fires and I am, without doubt, a chocoholic, cakeoholic and weddingoholic.  Yes, I may have just made that last one up.

When asked about me, this is what my friends and family said:  Abi is…

Smily, Chatty (total chatterbox more like!) Whimsical, Artistic, Fun, Bubbly, Passionate, Meticulous, Warm and ‘A Hugger’ … it’s true, I should probably come with a ‘Hug Warning’ or something.

they also said:  Abi is…

Silly (especially when it comes to photographing children!)
Emotional (I tear up over almost EVERYTHING happy or sad!)
A dancer (no excuse needed!)
A singer (much like dancing…any excuse to let out my inner Whitney!)
and finally…
Cake obsessed.  Yup.  That’s me!
