Hi I’m Bobbie! I’m a wedding and family photographer based in Bridgend, covering South Wales and the South West of England. I’m passionate about capturing memories and creating beautiful images that you will treasure for the rest of your life.
I’ve been an enthusiastic photographer since I was first let loose with my parents old disk camera when I was just 11 years old. I purchased my first camera when I was 14 and shot so many rolls of film that I drove my family nuts. Passionate also about painting, I studied Fine Art and Photography at the Kent Institute of Art & Design and then at Aberystwyth University. As part of my first post-study job I started photographing events and corporate functions. From there I started photographing weddings for friends and family, and instantly got hooked on capturing the joy, love, laughter and tears! Following redundancy, I made the decision to finally turn photography into my full time vocation. I’ve had the fortune to train with some outstanding established photographers, and I’m always pushing to try new creative techniques to create stunning photographs.
When you book me you’ll get someone who is passionate about capturing the memories of your day as it happens, I’ll often catch the little things that are so easy to miss. I take a real documentary approach through the day, I’m not a show-off who makes a big scene, but I take the time to work with you and pose you in your couple portraits so that you get beautiful and personal images that you’re proud to put on your walls and show off in a range of beautifully presented albums.
All my main packages include printed product. I love to see photographs where they should be: printed and on display rather than hidden away. I’m passionate about preserving your memories for years and generations to come, and the best way to ensure this is to professionally print your photographs. I’ve still got an 1880’s albumen print of my great great grandmother who worked as a photographic assistant painting colour onto black and white photographs.
When I’m not taking photographs you can usually find me dancing (badly) around the kitchen with my kids or exploring the great outdoors. I live with my husband and our two kids and we love getting out in the garden or going on adventures walking and climbing mountains.
