About Me….

Hi, I’m Hannah and I am lucky enough to say that I have my dream job!

From the excitement of the bridal party getting ready for the big day, to the look on the Father of the Bride’s face when he sees his beautiful daughter for the first time, I have the priviledge to share and record all these special moments. 

I offer a blend of relaxed creative portraits and natural documentary photography. My images are timeless and I LOVE natural light. I have a huge passion for photography and once I start taking photographs at a wedding I just can’t stop :-)

The thing I enjoy most about weddings is that everything important in life is celebrated on that one day. It’s not just about you and your partner, it’s about your friends and family too….the look on the face of your grandparent as you enter the church, your Page Boy whose so very proud to be wearing his new suit and your best friends who are desperately trying to hold back the tears. These are moments that should be remembered forever and my mission is to capture them.

All weddings are unique and I love hearing all about your plans and getting to know you both before your wedding. This really helps me get a feel for what you want and to ensure that no detail is missed. It is also important that I am almost invisible on your wedding day – it’s all about you guys after all! Of course I will be there to round up the troops to do the traditional family shots and I ensure that you feel as relaxed as possible which enables me to record beautiful, emotive and stylish photographs that you will treasure forever. 

I have photographed hundreds of  weddings over the last 15 years and all have been memorable and unique in their own special way. The final album you receive will represent the character and essence of your special day – attention to those small details is so important.

AVA Images is our family business and my husband Nick is an amazing and passionate portrait photographer. Nick and I met many moons ago when we were both starting out in the photography business. Our backgrounds are quite different; I studied Documentary Photography at University in my early 20′s and was fortunate enough to work in the industry straight after graduation. For Nick photography is in his blood, he grew up helping his dad with his wedding photography business before going freelance. We have a Studio in Kingsteignton, which we opened 6 years ago, where we do baby and family portraits. It’s a full time job for us and we love it! Oh I’d better not forget about our kids and mini AVA assistants – Bill, Ettie and Jude – they are part of the team too!

Right – work is calling so why not check out our testimonial page to see some beautiful comments from my brides or look at a few of our weddings albums so you can start thinking about what you would like on your wedding day –  I’ll definitely remember to bring my tissues!

Happy Wedding Planning
