I would highly recommend Louise. All our photos from our wedding day are perfect and we couldn't have wished for better! Louise was brilliant all day from start to finish. We especially loved the guest book Louise made from our pre wedding shoot. Amazing 10/10 A***

Louise was our wedding photographer at the Fleece this summer. She was just what we wanted as we liked her portfolio from previous shoots and she didn't disappoint. We wanted more of a documentary style rather than posed photos as we knew we'd be getting plenty of those from family and friends. Louise was very professional blending into the background to get the most natural shots of us and our guests but was ready to shoot when called for when we wanted a couple of family shots. She also surprised us by taking us to a local wheat field to get some arty shots which turned out lovely.
The pre wedding shoot included in her price also helped us get to know her a little better before our big day.Louise is easy to work with and good value for the quality of work we got, don't leave it too late to book her!

My wife and I would highly recommend Louise as your wedding photographer. We booked Louise for our wedding at Hyde Barn on 7th June and were not disappointed.
From the off Louise was friendly and helpful with all our email exchanges promptly answered.
The pre-wedding shoot was very easy going and we got great photos from the afternoon. On the day she blended in with the guests and wasn't imposing as I can image other photographers could be, with the guests commented on how nice she was.
The photos we received were excellent quality, with many people stating how well the they caught the atmosphere of the day. Louise even went out of her way to research how to take pictures of us and night's sky after we made a special request for a night time shot (the pictures came out great btw!).
All in all it was a great experience and one we would highly recommend to anyone.
Thank you Louise!

My brother last year (2011) got married and they used Louise for their photography and where thrilled with her. So when it came to choosing a photographer for my & my partners wedding in August this year (2012) there was no worry in choosing a photographer. From the pre wedding shots around the Oxford Colleges to the big day it's self, Louise was extremely professional & so friendly. There seemed no worry about how we wanted our group photos & the rest. We ordered the Belisimo wedding album which is worth the extra money, we now have the most beautiful album to cherish for the rest of our life. Choosing 90 pictures for the wedding album was so hard if we could have had all the pictures we would have had. Thank you so much Louise for making our day a truly special day to remember. Edd & Nik

We got married in December 2012 at The Manor House Hotel in Moreton-In-Marsh but do not live locally so it was a big gamble for us picking local people to provide services for the wedding. We had absolutely nothing to fear though as Louise was absolutely superb through the whole process. She persuaded us to do a pre-wedding shoot several weeks before the big day and we were a bit apprehensive, but it was a great idea. It got us used to being in front of the camera and also gave us the opportunity of getting to know Louise. As a bonus we also managed to get some fantastic photos of us in a lovely setting near Moreton.
On the wedding day she was so discreet that a lot of people mentioned afterwards that they thought she had gone home; but she stayed all day and managed to take the most amazing photos. Everybody has said how lovely our photos are and we are now the proud owners of a stunning wedding album that Louise made. The wedding day went so quickly so we are so pleased that we now have an album full of brilliant photos to cherish forever.
We cannot recommend Louise enough to everybody and will definitely be passing her details on to friends and family.
Louise - thank you so much for taking such fantastic photos and for being so helpful and easy to deal with through the whole process. We are very grateful.
