My name is Janet , I am an experienced full time Lake District wedding photographer and I couldn’t be happier running a wedding photography business in the area where I grew up. Based in the beautiful village of Beetham, Cumbria has always been home to me and my family. Regularly photographing weddings in The Lake District, Lancashire and The Scottish Borders. I think myself very lucky to be able to live and work in such beautiful county.
My approach is to capture your day as it unfolds, looking out for spontaneous moments of emotion and all the countless treasures in between. Formal shoots, too are never stuffy or too posey. Allowing you and your wedding party to enjoy the day. I believe in capturing REAL moments that will become more precious and more valuable as time goes on. More importantly, I always aim to give my clients a set of wedding photographs that they will treasure forever.
You have spent months planning your wedding and I want to make sure that you get to spend as much time as possible with your guests. Whether your wedding is going to have a rustic, modern, vintage or classic theme. I would love to be there to capture some beautiful memories for you. Please do take your time to look around the site especially My Work and F.A.Q pages.
I’m always happy to hear about your dreams for your big day.
