About Hannah

Hi, I’m Hannah! I love weddings and have been shooting couples in love for ten years now. I 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.



My style is strongly documentary (I am also currently studying a Masters in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography), which means that I am 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 won’t be heavily directing you, telling you which way to look or generally interfering with the natural ebb and flow. If you want lots of posed pictures and group shots, that’s not really me!



I love people-watching, 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 the details (venue, dress, flowers) are important things 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 and illustration, my other passion. I have a bit of a thing for slick typography and beautifully printed magazines. I also love art galleries, ceilidhs, sweet soul music, sand between my toes and board games.



Manchester is currently home for me and my husband, Luke. I love it for its creativity, vibrancy and northern soul. 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.
