Why we do what we do


You may have noticed of late, we’ve had a bit of a face lift! This reflects a lot of behind the scenes work to really establish why we do what we do. This has largely been driven by being part of an immensely supportive and inspiring mastermind group I am in.

All photographers have a passion for their niche area, for us, its weddings and there is definitely a huge love for the weddings we shoot.

But why? Well, because how many times in your life do you get to shout from the roof tops how much you love each other in a beautiful setting and surrounded by all the other important people in your life?Hannah and David at The Barns Hotel - Bedford - Amanda Karen Photography

So why wouldn’t you want to cement all that love, emotion and happiness to display proudly in your home (this goes for lifestyle photography too)? Why not have your most favourite and cherished moments around you, yes they’re in your heart and mind, but let’s show them off and see them every morning as you eat breakfast or as you sit watching the latest episode of your favourite show in the living room.

And that’s our mission and drive, to fill your homes with beautiful imagery of your lives, to remind you, even when things are down, just how great things have been, and will be.
