About Me

After graduating with a degree in ba hons editorial and commercial photography in 2006, I decided to become a freelance photographer. I specialise in weddings, a combination of my two greatest passions, people and photography. I am a lover of fine detail and beautiful attire and wanted to create an experience nothing short of what I would expect on my own wedding day. My clients comment favourably about my signature style and unobtrusive approach which enables me to work personally with the bridal party and guests in a relaxed environment, achieving the desired results. My style is candid and includes a beautiful colour palette individual for each wedding. I ensure the atmosphere remains true to the day and love the variety of light the weather can determine. I am inspired by lifestyle and fashion features as well as classic photographs. Some career highlights include my images appearing in numerous magazines including photography monthly, professional photographer, turning pro, wedding ideas and creative brides. I have also featured in many wedding blogs nationwide. This career and lifestyle choice has fortunately taken me to many fantastic locations around the world and given me endless opportunities and priceless experiences that have helped to shape my business and the service I provide into something I am very proud of.

Meet the team

Lindsay and I first met at college studying photography, our friendship grew throughout university and we remain the best of friends today. After graduating Lindsay decided to travel the world and hone her photographic skill working as a Senior photographer on a cruise ship. This experience made Lindsay the confident and successful photographer she is today and her travel portfolio is truly stunning. On her return to dry land she soon started a family and shares her life with her lovely husband Les and beautiful children Lilly and Louie. She is a great photographer to have around children, capturing all of the priceless moment and encouraging them to shine in front of the camera. As well as working the Gloucestershire weddings she also works for the acclaimed portrait studio Academy. Passionate and proactive, people often comment on our professional yet friendly manner when working a wedding together. After collaborating together over the years our approach to the running of the day is seamless and it’s lovely to work with someone that knows exactly what I am looking for. Lindsay also specialises in newborn and family portraits. Check her work out at www.ljopsonphotography.co.uk

Andy joined the team in December 2016. His friendly approach and passion for photography made him very likable and we worked well together from the first wedding. This is very important when your working closely with someone to achieve beautiful images together under pressure. With a background in wildlife and aviation photography you can guarantee that Andy has the patience to wait for those perfect candid moments to happen. Capturing the guests laughing, children playing, sometimes the tears, the little looks of love – Andy is at hand with his 70-200mm lens to ensure the bride and groom have these photographs to treasure. He blends in perfectly, never being invasive and always manages to be in the right place at the right time for a perfect shot. His appreciation for natural light ensure his images reflect the essence of the day and makes his photographs a pleasure to edit in reproduction. His images always seem to lend well to black and white although equally as lovely in colour. Andy is based in Cheltenham with two beautiful daughters Madison and Isabelle and his lovely fiancĂ©e Beci. Although Andy also works full-time his wildlife, motor sports and aviation images are not to be missed. Check his work out here: www.aklsphotography.com
