About Hannah

Hi, I’m Hannah! I’m 32 and I love weddings! I’ve been shooting couples in love for six years now and still get a buzz off the celebrations, and making pictures that will remind a couple who they are, how they love and what great friends and family they have.


I’m a documentary photographer/photojournalist, so I’m all about capturing natural, unforced moments, the way you looked at each other and the eruptions of laughter. Throughout the course of the day I will not be directing you, telling you which way to look or generally interfering with the natural ebb and flow.


I love people-watching (not creepily!), so working in this journalistic tradition comes naturally. I usually get plenty of comments after a wedding that people either didn’t notice me, or didn’t mind me photographing them at all because it didn’t feel intrusive.


I like to do a short session to get some couple portraits in beautiful light and this can double as a nice chance for you to have a little time away from the crowds. Of course, all the details, the venue, dress, flowers etc. are important symbols for you to remember too, and I make sure these are artistically photographed in context so the pictures have real personal significance.


When I’m not at a wedding, you will find me doing graphic design, my other occupation. I have a bit of a thing for slick typography and beautifully printed magazines. I also love ceilidhs, sweet soul music, sand between my toes, board games and hot steamy drinks.


Manchester is where I call home and I love it for its creativity and northern soul. I’m not married myself but am surrounded by incredible friends that make up for that, for now 🙂 Oh, and I got started taking pictures back in the 80’s on this special Mighty White camera.

My Name

Beatrice is my middle name. I was named after my great grandmother, Beatrix Evelyn, pictured here, who happened to have been a keen photographer.

(She also once stood up in Holy Trinity Brompton Church in London, in front of the whole congregation, to challenge the poor preacher on his lack of understanding of the sanctity of marriage, before storming out… I’ll tell you more about her, one day.)

I Love Shetland

Shetland is my true north. For a peerie taste of its astounding beauty, have a read of the journal entry I wrote about it.
