Home: about me


My name is Sam, I live in Didcot, Oxfordshire,  and I  taking photos. One of my favourite things is to capture people having a good time. If you are having an event such as a party, wedding, christening, performance, or a school or community event then I can make sure you have a great set of memories for years to come. I offer a bespoke service, starting with discussing your needs so that I can compile a set of photos that capture both the “key” images important to you and the extra, unplanned shots that add to the memories and atmosphere.

If you’re after something a little more low key, I can of course do a family photoshoot for you. As a mum, I know that it can be tricky getting the younger family members to relax and stop putting on silly poses. I believe that the best photos come when the subjects are happy and relaxed. A good start is to work in a familiar environment. Therefore I take photos either in the comfort of your own home, or out at a favourite location, wherever suits you best. While I work hard to bring out the best in your photos I try to keep a relaxed pace and help you feel at ease from start to end.

If you have a look at my blog you’ll learn a little more about me and my style. Look at the galleries and you will find examples of work I have done for other people, and some examples of specific themes such as weddings, parties, performances. If you like what you see then please do get in touch so we can discuss your requirements.

    1. Hi Liam. Firstly, congratulations and thanks for getting in touch. For work within 10 miles of Didcot I charge a simple hourly rate, which varies depending on the length of the booking. An hour or two is charged at £60 per hour, then for longer bookings the hourly rate goes down. For that you get X hours of my time at your event, then I edit the photos as necessary and supply you with a set of edited images on a memory stick, giving you the right to print as many copies as you want at the sizes you want, or to make albums, photos photo books, wall art etc. If the event is further away there will be an additional charge for travel.

      I know every wedding has its own “flavour” and I’m very happy to discuss your requirements. So please get back in touch and I hope I can help.


    2. Hi again Liam. Just to let you know (now that I have access to my files) that 2 hours of photo time would be £120, 4 hours would be £220, 6 hours £320, 8 hours £420. If you can let me know what sort of coverage you’d like (preparations/before the ceremony/during the ceremony/formal photos after the ceremony/photos of meal, speeches etc/informal photos of dancing/party) we can work out what would work best for you. And of course I’ll need to know a date if you’d like me there 🙂
