I’m a happy wife and mum to three awesome kids under 4 and we live just outside of Preston,Lancashire . We enjoy going on little family adventures near and far, especially back to my homeland of South Africa.
As a Christian I love the concept of marriage and to me weddings are the ultimate celebration, and so worth capturing with amazing images.
I like to buy good quality stuff that I love and not pay the earth for it and I have brought these values into my business and offer a solution for couples who love my style of photography at what I believe is a good price.
Am I the right photographer for you ? I love working with couples who have a sense of style and love to laugh and celebrate. Think confetti, flowers, twinkly lights, sparklers, balloons, fireworks and lots of giggles!
I have a friendly, unobtrusive and relaxed approach. If you book me as your wedding photographer you will get a set of candid images that capture the mood of your wedding day, with some natural portraits that would be fit to grace any wall or mantlepiece in your marital home. When you’re booking me as your photographer you are trusting my vision and artistry to document the celebration of your new life together, so please send me a message if you love the images on my weddings + lifestyle pages.
Get in touch with me to chat about your Ribble Valley, Preston, Lake District, Manchester or The Garden Route, South Africa wedding photography.
Thanks for visiting,

“When choosing our photographer, we definitely made the right choice – working with Marina was a pleasure from start to finish.
The first time we met Marina was for our engagement shoot. We’d never had professional photos taken before so we felt nervous but, with Marina’s help, we enjoyed ourselves and the photos are beautiful – we knew then that the wedding ones would be perfect (and they really are). Between our engagement shoot and our wedding, Marina communicated with us really well – we knew exactly what to expect (However, never did I think having photos taken would be my favourite part of the day – more on that in a minute). During the ceremony and reception, Marina did a great job of capturing us and our loved ones without getting in the way – which the reverand and a number of our guests complimented her for.
During the group photographs, Marina was organised and ensured a part of the day that could have been stressful (based on the size of my husband’s family) went smoothly.
But, what we loved most about working with Marina was the couple photographs. Apart from seeing Matt’s face for the first time and saying ‘I do’, it was my favourite part of the day. Marina gave us space to talk (for the first time as husband and wife) and to enjoy the precious moment – she took hundreds of photos without making us feel like we were in front of a camera and the results are absolutely stunning.
We love our wedding photos so so so much and I would have one on every wall in the house if I could.
I am looking forward to working with Marina again in the future – maybe next time there will be more than two of us but, until then, I’ll be recommending her to every bride to be I know.
PS The turnaround time and presentation of the photos was also really really really good.” Words by Rebecca a Manchester bride
