Me Stuff

Hi I’m Beki, I am a photographer and a bookbinder and I am mega into what I do. I don’t believe in following the rules of traditional wedding photography and portraiture. I am an artist and I approach every wedding with a free and creative energy. I believe it is a huge privilege to photograph a wedding and I work hard to be unobtrusive but to also make everyone feel relaxed and have fun whilst I am taking their picture…. This is how I believe you get good shots and people are comfortable enough to reveal who they are – even those who hate having their picture taken are surprised by what we can create together.

I am crazy about Fleetwood Mac, photographing in the evening light, anything that your granny may have in her house, making friends, making things and I would do anything for thicker hair. I live in Dorset with Boyfriend Mark in an old do-er-up-er cottage. We have renovated a beautiful studio and I would love you to come and visit.

“Hi Beki, Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the wedding day. You were so amazing and I couldn’t have asked for more, it was more like we had a friend taking our snaps. You made us feel so at ease and everyone is still commenting on how lovely you were. You definitely have a fan in my niece, you were so lovely with her and you could see when was so proud to be your little assistant. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.” – Jen and Jas, Text message

“Dear Beki, Thank you so much for our photographs, they are so beautiful! You were brilliant from start to finish, putting us both at ease, helping out and blending in so that most of the time we didn’t even know you were taking our photograph. It feels like we have known you for years. We now have the impossible task of choosing our favourites to print. Thank you again Love Sarah and Dan” - Sarah and Dan, Thank you card

“Dearest Beki, Where to start?!? You are simply marvellous!! We LOVE the wedding photos and cant wait to get together to make the album… thank you so much for all your hard work and being so fabulous!” – Debbie and AD, Text message

You have managed to capture so many details, moments, perspectives we would never have known about! We are lucky to have found you! The show is sensational – cannot wait to show the mums!!! Thank you!!” -  Lisa and Joe, Text message

“Hi Beki, sorry it is so late but we just watched our wedding show! Thank you SO much, we absolutely love it! We are so glad we chose you to be our wedding photographer. The photo’s are better than we could have ever imagined. Love Megan and Nik” - Megan and Nik , Text message

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you Beki, for playing a huge part in our wedding on Friday and making the day so special, your energy and love of what you do really rubs off on everyone you meet, so many of our guests commented on how incredible you are. Cannot contain my excitement with seeing our photos in 8 weeks!!” - Sasha and Ashley, Facebook

“We first met Beki at our friend’s wedding, and the next day both agreed without discussion, or even seeing her pictures that we had to have her at our wedding (we weren’t even engaged)! Then we saw Beki’s pictures and were so inspired there really was no decision to be made. Our photos are truly stunning, we couldn’t be more pleased with them.  We are forever grateful for Beki’s incredible talent and beautiful personality, which combined make her an exceptional photographer who has given us a timeless record of our wedding!” – Laura and Roo, Testimonial

“If Carlsberg made photographers…………..The first time we met Beki we were just bowled over by her friendliness, enthusiasm and unabashed lack of embarrassment about not being 100% au fait with her new iPad.  And all this was before we had even seen some of her b-e-a-u-tifulllllllllllllll photos….From that very moment on, we knew that we wanted Beki to share our wedding day with us, and that we could trust her 100% to capture our most precious moments for us.  And boy, we were not disappointed! Right from the get go, we both felt at ease and able to be ourselves.  We immediately fell in love with Beki’s relaxed and impromptu journalistic approach to her photography.  She has a very special gift of making you feel like you have a childhood friend photographing your wedding. Honestly, you will feel like she is another treasured guest (which of course in many ways she is!).  We have so many wonderful images that we will enjoy  forever, and you will not be disappointed by the images that Beki manages to catch, either conventionally (say ‘cheese!’) or from hanging from a Chandelier or popping out from behind a plant when you and your guests least expect it! Book Beki – you will not regret it.  The photos & communication are second to none! Carlsberg don’t make photographers, but if they did, we’d bet they’d be just like Beki.” -  Nat and Andy, Testimonial

“Finding Beki to shoot our wedding was the best part of the whole process for us and we can’t recommend her highly enough! She is an amazing and creative photographer who totally ‘got’ us and captured our day perfectly,  as well as being a wonderful addition to the day with her fun, positive attitude and friendly demeanour which put us and all our wedding guests at ease. Her style was exactly how we wanted to remember our wedding, and the fact that she handmakes all her wedding albums with such care and attention really sealed the deal for us. We were totally overwhelmed by the finished album which we will cherish forever. Whatever your budget, find room in it for Beki…. Memories may fade, but your beautiful photos will last forever.” -  Debbie and AD, Testimonial

“At first, we thought we didn’t want a photographer for our wedding as both my husband and I hate having our picture taken, and we’d both been to weddings where there is an obtrusive paparazzi-style photographer lurking! Our Wedding Planner encouraged us to re-think, and recommended that we look at Beki’s website first. We did – and never looked back!  As soon as we saw the pictures on her website gallery, we loved them! Natural, classic, attention to detail and above all not staged or cheesy. Beki created a package to suit what we needed, and although we only met once at the venue before the big day, we felt like we’d known her for years. this was really important to us, as we wanted a small, low-key affair with no stuffiness. All our guests commented on how she blended in and took great shots of them, without getting in their faces.” - Makala and Rob, Testimonial

“OUR PHOTOS ARE AMAZING BEKI. YOU ARE AMAZING. EVERYTHING IS AMAZING. AMAZING!” - Sally and Sam, Facebook

“Huge thanks for taking time for us today. Feeling very lucky and blessed to know you. Cant wait to see the pics.” - Janet and Family, Facebook

“You’re amazing! My boy is smitten (again!) I love having you capturing my family as we grow together xx ” - Cleone and Family, Facebook

“We cannot recommend Beki enough! In fact, we do recommend Beki at every opportunity we get. She is now doing another wedding for our family later this year and a photo shoot for some friends of ours who were not even at our wedding but were so impressed when they saw our photos, they just had to know who’d taken them! We were very specific about what kind of photographer we were looking for for our day and were beginning to think it did not exist – then we found Beki! We wanted natural shots that captured the details we had spent 18 months planning and the moments we never want to forget. What we did not want were shots that were too formal and missed all the little things. Beki gave us exactly what we asked for and so much more. Her photography captured more than we could have hoped for. Not only are her photos beautiful, timeless and unlike any wedding photography we have seen elsewhere; but her presence at our day made it all the more special. Beki has a way of making everybody feel at ease, keeping the bride calm during the morning and the guests amused and engaged late into the evening. It was a joy to have her at our special day but an absolute blessing to have her there with her camera and the wonders she can work with it.
We are already expecting our first baby and cannot wait to book Beki to take photos and make more wonderful memories for us!” -  Lisa and Joe, Testimonial
