HELLO, I’m Ann a wedding & portrait photographer, based in the South Wales valleys between Pontypool and Abergavenny. Specialising in weddings including same-sex marriage and civil partnerships, destination weddings, portraits, baby bump, baby, children’s parties, boudoir, photo restoration and property photography.
I am a fully qualified, professional lady wedding photographer. I offer stylish and elegant wedding photography across South Wales, UK and abroad. Capturing special moments in your lives, whilst having fun, is the most important thing in the world to me. I love producing timeless images that you can treasure and hold close to your heart. You may be thinking “I wonder why Ann’s a photographer?” If so, that’s a good question!
It started out many years ago, I was always the one taking family and friend pictures. When asked to photograph a friend’s wedding, my initial reaction was “no”, but eventually I was persuaded. That was just the beginning, when they saw the images they said, ‘Ann, you’ve really got something here”. I pondered for a while, did a few courses and ended up doing a degree. Now, an experienced photographer, with 10 years of experience. I still get excitied about each new client I meet and the journey they take me on. Every customer is different. They have different needs and expectations.
To be a photographer you must be a people’s person. It’s all about managing the people you work with, in a professional but kind manner, with end results. Moving 130+ people at a wedding, into the area and positioning them into the correct position, takes experience.
Photography is not just about putting your camera onto automatic and pushing the button. It’s hard work and you need to be fit. I absolutely love my job, the people I meet and the kids I end up running around with! It’s a good thing I love my local gym and keeping fit too!
