North Wales Wedding & Elopement Photographer

We just received our wedding photos back from Babs and are completely blown away!! She managed to capture so many sweet moments throughout the day without us even realising she was doing it. Her photography style is laid back and relaxed which made for some naturally beautiful, candid shots without all of the awkward posing! Not only are her photos amazing but she was incredibly patient with us throughout the craziness of the day and was happy to go with the flow when things were running behind. We couldn’t be happier with how all of our photos turned out and would highly recommend hiring Babs as your photographer!
