My style of photography is super fun, happy & colourful!
I feel so blessed to be a wedding photographer as I absolutely LOVE weddings. From relatives that haven’t seen each other in years, the tearful sniffles during the speeches & the beautiful heartfelt moments between a newlywed couple sharing the happiest day of their lives together. Getting to photograph these moments & giving them to couples to enjoy for years & years after their wedding day is a wonderful thing & I truly believe I have one of the most fulfilling jobs out there.
If I’m going to be taking photographs of your incredible day, it’s only fair that you get to know a bit about me first. Of course, we’ll have a chance to get to know each other a little before the big day (your booking includes a pre-wedding consultation, either by Skype or in person), but as recommended wedding photographers in Manchester, here’s a little bit of info about me that you might like to know before all that…
I established my fun wedding photography business, Zen Photo, in 2009 after a 12 year career in TV production. I have always been obsessed with cinematography & the use of light & composition which served me well when I became a professional wedding photographer.
I’m creative, social & organised – three traits that definitely come in handy when you photograph weddings for a living. I’ve been married to James, who I met at uni, since 2004, & we have two gorgeous rug rats, Olivia & Brandon & a gorgeous Cavapoo - Monty-Dog.
"We cannot recommend Zenna enough, she was amazing on the day so professional & knew exactly what we wanted & what we didn't want! I cannot stop looking at our photographs there amazing. She captured things as they were happening! She made everybody feel comfortable & we love her dedication to getting what she thought would work. So down to earth we had no problems in discussing what we wanted for our special day. Couldn't of asked for a better photo album. We would defiantly be recommending Zenna to everyone. Thank you so much!!" Holly & Tom - Eaves Hall
Here’s some other stuff I love: live music, camping in the sunshine, the ocean, learning, deep & meaningful conversations, travelling, NYC, champagne, being kind & (of course) weddings!
Yep, weddings are my thing - which is a good job really! Every couple & every celebration is unique; it’s one of the best things about what I do. I adore the outfits, the flowers, the pure joy of it all. Church ceremonies are among my favourites, as are weddings at National Trust properties & those overseas. Basically, wherever they are, weddings are awesome & I heart taking pictures of them.
Your wedding day should be all about you. While I get involved during the group shots & your bridal portraits as a newly married couple, on the whole I tend to blend into the background on your big day, allowing you to focus on the task in hand, whilst I capture it all on camera. From the moment we have that first consultation to the day your luxurious wedding album is printed & bound, we’ll build up a great rapport. I tend to leave weddings feeling like I’ve made a set of brilliant new friends, with hugs & kisses all round.
Being one of Cheshire wedding photographers I have the creativity & technical prowess of an experienced wedding photographer, & the organisational skills of a seasoned TV producer & mum, but I'm also caring, compassionate & warm. I want you to feel completely relaxed & confident about your wedding day photography.
