We would highly recommend Lis as a wedding photographer.  She was very easy to get on with, easy to contact and responded straight away, listened to us, made suggestions if we were unsure and was very patient!  She put us at ease during our pre-wedding shoot which we were a bit nervous about and everyone commented on how lovely the photos were.  She made a fantastic guest book using these photos which was really unique. We met up a few times before the wedding which was really useful, Lis even attended our wedding rehearsal.  On the day she was very organised and got on without a fuss. The photos were great and our album is absolutely amazing!!  Thanks so much Lis, Sarah and Doug.

Sarah & Doug Fletcher, - Wedding, 

My day with Lis was a present from my wife who had become increasingly frustrated with my inability to take a decent photo of our grand-children.  We spent the day on what I would call the 'soft' aspects of photograping people. Not the technical stuff but the best angles to photo from, the choice of backgrounds and lighting.  The art of taking the photo which you do not find in the manual.  A really good day and has really improved my photography.  I no longer just fire away but now consider the composition of the photo I am about to take; and my wife likes the results!

John Hebditch, 1-2-1 Photography Training 

From the start of our wedding enquiry to the finished albums, Lis has been amazing!  Lis has thought about our wants and needs through everything.  She's caring and honest and always gives great advice.  Her team on the day were great, they never rushed us, so we enjoyed every minute, and were made to feel very special.

Lis and Conrad have become great friends of ours and I would definitely say she is a must at your wedding to make it perfect!

I will be using Lis again in the future and I do recommend her to others all the time.  Thank you again.

Liz & Dave Gore  - Wedding 

Lis recently photographed our team.  She was great fun to have around, nothing was too much trouble and the results were absolutely briliant. I would'nt hesitate to recommend her to any business looking for natural and stylish corporate shots.

Mark Young, Retriever New Business. 

I was both apprehensive and excited about my 1-2-1 with Lis as I was eager to learn as much as I could without learning too much that I'd forget something in the process.  Thankfully Lis had it all planned out, and under her tutorage I was able to learn a lot about how to use my digital SLR outside of Auto mode.  Lis had also invited one of her friends around to model for me a little and it was great fun to work with someone whilst Lis showed me some of her tricks.

Lis was incredibly creative in her approach to teaching which made it an enjoyable and informative day for me, I'm glad I had the chance to spend the day with Lis. I'm now more comfortable with playing around with the camera settings to fit the scene that I want to capture.  Thanks Lis.

I pushed myself to have my photograph taken in the name of business to present the friendly face of my Coaching business.  I felt uncomfortable at first, however within minutes Lis put me at ease.  With her natural sense of humor she made the session fun enabling me to feel relaxed and almost dare I say glamorous.

Ann-Marie Conroy, Personal Development Coach, First Step Forward 

On the birth of our second child, there was no hestation in contacting Lis again,to capture Klara in her early weeks....

Having done this for our first, nearly five years ago, we were keen to repeat the whole experience, from the relaxed picture taking session, to the stunning results! The fabulous portraits, collages and canvases take pride of place in their respective settings and please us every time we pass them.

There is no reason why we wouldn't go straight back to Lis as and when we want more excellent photographic memories as our family grows......

Thanks Lis, you deserve every success!

Lis, I would like to say thank you very much for attending the Deceuninck customer day in September. The shots you took were really professional and really caught the spirit of the day.

Several of our customers have actually asked to use the images on their website and to include them into their marketing literature; this speaks volumes as they are very particular in their requirements.

We were also impressed in the way you were able to integrate into our customer groups and enjoy chatting with them, this made it easier to get some good images.  Once again, Lis, so very many thanks from all of us here at Deceuninck......until the next time!!!

Carol, Customer Services Manager, Deceuninck Limited

I used to put my digital SLR on automatic most of the time and hope for the best.  While I would get the occassional good result I was usually disappointed, and although I'd often worked through the manual it was difficult to remember what I'd learned when I returned to use the camera next time.  So it made a huge difference to spend the day with Lis as she showed me how to use my camera in manual mode.  I think this is really important as you get to understand the settings and displays on the camera and learn how to interpret them and use them to achieve varying effects.  I also learned a lot about capturing indoor subjects without having to use lights which is important for my upcoming project.  The great thing about Lis' one to one training is it is tailored to your individual requirements.

Lis' approach was more creative than scientific which suited me perfectly.  I thoroughly enjoyed the day, took a lot on board and I'm now much more confident handling the camera. Thanks Lis.

Alex  1-2-1 Training

We have asked Lis back to take some photos of our family with our new baby, and as before it's been a thoroughly enjoyalbe experience.  Lis is a lovely lady who puts everyone at ease and we have more beautiful pictures we will cherish forever.

Amanda & Simon Portrait

Thank you for a very instructive day which was huge fun from start to finish!  You've opened my eyes on how to experiment with the camera, from controls to composition, in the quest to get that elusive picture.  Your positive example and advice are great incentives to get out and put it into practice.  Thank you again for an inspiring and really valuable day.

Claire F 1-2-1 Training

Lis is very, very creative and listens.  This is unusual because it seems the choice is either one or the other when trying to choose a photographer.

Kindness and intuition got the best out of the entire wedding party. The brilliant control without being bossy on the day meant the beautiful pictures did not take hours to set up! I have been to many a wedding where this drags and Lis didn't let this happen.  Always with a ready smile and quick eye for something special.

Lis is going to be photographing our new little family for many years to come. When it is time for babies, intimate portraits or pregnancy pictures - she will be with us.

Thank you from the fun in the pre-we shoot right through to talking about albums.

Anna & Paul Hartley-Wilson Wedding

Lis is fab! Her photographs are great and she has such a good eye for a picture.  Our pre-wedding shots were done at Avebury and she capture our favourite place so well.

The wedding day went so quickly we couldn't remember everything that had happened but luckily Lis had captured the day so well if we had missed anything she had got it on film.  I don't know how she managed to be in so many places at once.

Paula & Martin Wedding

Lis captured every moment of our special day - and made it fun whilst she was doing it!  she & Conrad seemed able to be everywhere, all the time, getting not only the 'traditional' shots that we'd asked for, but also those magic moments that no-one can predict - like Chris's 90 year old Mum having great fun playing on the giant scalextric!!  Our wedding theme was bluebells & she has taken some STUNNING shots of us  wandering amongst the bluebells - and managed to make it look like the sun was shining, even when it started drizzling!

We'd highly recommend Lis to any prospective brides & grooms - her work is top quality and our album is one to treasure.  Thanks Lis!

Anne & Chris Wardell Wedding

We un-hesitatingly recommend Lis to any bride looking for a fun, professional, fantastic photographer.  From day one she was an absolute joy to work with.  Our wedding album is truly stunning, with it's mix of contemporary and classic pictures.  Lis not only captured all the special moments but the essence and emotion of the day.  We re-live our day every time we look at our beautiful wedding pictures.  Everyone who has seen our album has been blown away by it's quality, style and uniqueness.  We could not have wished for more and will certainly be using Lis again in the future.

Sarah & Andy Gover Wedding

Lis isn't a photographer. She's a genius! Anyone that can get a good photograph of Steve's dad MUST know what they are doing!

More seriously, working with Lis, from the day we first met her, through our pre-wedding shoot, and of course the big day itself was a delight. She captured everything perfectly, from Amanda getting ready, and right into the evening, She also had some briliant ideas for some informal shots - Lis clearly doesn't believe in doing things in a "run of the mill" way!

Her relaxed nature on the day helped put everyone at ease - especially important for the "group shots", and quite simply the results speak for themselves - as yet we've only seen the on-line proof of the album she is producing for us. Quite simply, we can't wait to get our hands on the real thing!

Steve and Amanda Wedding

A short note of healthfelt thanks to you and your husband for your magnificant work at my son's wedding last Saturday. I can't wait to see the final results but if they are the equal of your efforts to capture every aspect of the wedding, and I am sure they will be, then they will be truly wonderful.

It is some time since I attended a wedding such as this but I cannot recall ever seeing the photographer working from the very start of the day and still snapping away so late in the day yet alone attend the rehearsal the night before.

Please accept my most sincere thanks and my best wishes to you both you and your husband.

Mr Roger Rowlands Wedding

Picking Lis as our photographer was definitely the high point of the wedding planning! We cannot recommend her highly enough. She was wonderfully calm in the face of bridal nerves (not to mention the groom) and we loved having her at the wedding. Every guest on the day has since commented on how brilliant she was, getting 80 unruly people in place, on time, and all smiling! Our wedding album is totally gorgeous, she has done such a fabulous job. She has captured all the moments that we could have wanted, and made the day come alive again and again for us, with her beautiful pictures. Five stars just doesn't do her justice. Thank you, Lis, for making the day completely perfect.

Cate Coulthard Wedding

To say that our wedding album is amazing is an understatement! Every person that has seen it has commented on the quality of the album itself and the beautiful, unique photo's. Lis was professional at all times, and she made us feel at ease, in fact the photo's were the one thing that we did not have to worry about because we knew that Lis would capture our day perfectly, just the way we wanted. Lis comes highly recommended. A five star photographer, that i will be using in the future!

Joanne Harrison  Wedding

We couldn't of asked for anything better!! Lis captured every moment of our day and made both us and our guests feel comfortable and at ease. She created some beautiful pictures that we can cherish forever! After the big day itself, Lis quickly compiled our pictures for us to see and choose from. We now have our album which looks amazing. Family and friends are very impressed with the modern and traditional mixture of photos! We would definately recommend her and would not hesitate to use her again for other occasions!! We didn't just meet a photographer for our wedding but have made a lovely friend who we will continue to see whenever we can! Thanks for the perfect collection of memories Lis!

Becky Deane Wedding

The pictures are amazing! Thank you so much. We had an amazing day on the day of the shoot and it wasnt awkward or uncomfortable.
We both came away feeling really good about ourselves - we were buzzing for the rest of the day.

Nicole and Paul - Feel Good Session

A very personal but professional service, you made us feel very relaxed which is no small thing on the big day, (one less thing to worry about!) We have and will recommend you.

Thankyou for recording our memories so brilliantly

Jem and Ria, Wedding  &  Family shoot 

Lis did a fantastic job in capturing our wedding day - so much so that people who missed it say they feel like they were there just by looking at the photos she took. She did a great job capturing the group shots we wanted but the favourites are the wonderful spontaneous shots - we look at them and feel happy all over again!

Ruth & Andrew Wedding

Lis instinctively relaxes you and then reveals your inner self.

Nikki FGF 

Lis always gives her time readily, making a relaxed experience, creating stunning photos with a natural and comfortable feel.

Megan Portrait Session 

Thanks to Lis making me comfortable, relaxed and so at ease ....... the photogragh session and finished photos have filled me with so much confidence like never before!!!! 52 and feeling great!!!! You are amazing Lis!!!!!

Sally. FGF session

Lis Has produced the most amazing photographs of our wedding day. I am not a photogenic person and 'am the first to be self critical but I thought she took some brilliant shots of us both; they're certainly the best photos of me that anyone has ever taken. Those who've seen our pictures have nearly all said that they are the best wedding photos they've ever seen. We were worried about getting the right shots - we wanted very natural pictures of our day and we got exactly that!

Jane & Justin 

You have a talent for making people feel beautiful, but most of all you help them mend and finally feel good about themselves.

Lorraine FGF shoot 

We really enjoyed our session with Lis. It was great being in our own home and she made us feel very relaxed so that we were able to be ourselves for the camera. The pictures of Grace were just what we were hoping for.

Isobel, Brian and Grace family portrait sitting 

We wanted some relaxed family photos of our children and when previously visiting other studios this has been quite unsettling for the children.. By visiting us at home the children were immediately at ease. Lis is very patient, taking her time, to give plenty of opportunity to get a photo when it arises, leading to some great pictures. We were delighted with Lis's work and have asked her back again this year.

Sarah & Jason, Family portrait sessions 

Lis was absolutely fantastic to have on our wedding day. A year later from the wedding, we still love looking through all the wonderful shots she took throughout our special day. She made us both feel incredibly at ease and we ended up laughing and really enjoying having our picture taken. We had a few meetings before hand and she was very attentive to exactly what we felt we wanted. We would highly recommend Lis to any bride or bridegroom if they want to remember their magical day with beautiful romantic photographs.

Tash & Dobs

We wanted to write and thank you for all your brilliant work photographing the wedding. Your photography was so artistic and captured many special moments. Looking at your photographs of the wedding gives such enormous pleasure and happiness. We greatly appreciated your detail and preparatory work. It was lovely discussing and planning the photography with you.

Gaby & Andy 

Capturing the ethos and genuine philosophy of our school, these photographs celebrate the uniqueness and wonderful, vibrant atmosphere of our school!
