Life is all about people, moments & emotions that we want to hold on to..

Hi, my name is Odette, I am a UK based Wedding Photographer from Staffordshire with Derbyshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire as my most popular locations.

Hey I'm Odette & wedding photography is my passion

I live in Staffordshire with my amazing husband (yep he paid me to say that) our youngest lad and two crazy Springers Maddie & Maisie!! I love dogs of all shapes and sizes and when I first left school I worked with them for a while until I realised that job would never pay the bills. I love walking and mountain biking in nearby Cannock Chase and I'm learning to wobble board, well paddle board, but for some reason mine seems to wobble a lot!

Since we got the girls (Maddie & Maisie) we spend a lot of time down in Cornwall, it's super dog friendly and we can spend our days walking, body boarding and eating great food.

I want to be the best wedding photographer I possibly can and one that's affordable for the majority of couples too. I would describe myself as a bit of a hybrid wedding photographer in that I love natural, candid style images and will capture the majority of your day in this way, but I also love epic portraits, portraiture is how I started out in photography and I love to search out the best lighting and composition to flatter and enhance my couples! Not in a posey staged kinda way but keeping you fluid and moving so you never feel uneasy,

I'll let you into a secret, I have a super power.... and this is to make you feel comfortable in front of my lens, I know you're probably shaking your heads right now and saying you're not photogenic and you absolutely hate having a camera pointed at you but trust me, the majority of my couples say this to me and then once we've spent time together they realise how much fun it can be. But don't tell everybody about my super power or I'll be having Marvel knocking at my door!!

Me in a nutshell.

People are my jam, I have always worked with people from all walks of life.

I'm a self confessed dog lover and have 2 gorgeous Spaniels called Maddie & Maisie

My idea of a perfect day is being out in nature somewhere, whether that be walking in a forest, paddle boarding down a river or just chilling watching the sunset on a beach

I am the worst but most enthusiastic singer alive

I have been with my husband for 10 years and he makes me smile every single day, he is the coolest most suave man I know, so how he ended up with me and my messy eating habits who knows?!?! But I'm glad he did!

I am a pretty messy eater, not the food all around your mouth type, but I do somehow manage to spill stuff down me, I think I have a hole somewhere in my cheek!!

I'm addicted to seeing people happy and in love and you will no doubt find me wiping a tear away as you declare your love for each other!! Yes I'm a wuss!!

I am a qualified drone pilot and weather and venue permitting I love to grab a few aerial shots as an extra!

The best wedding photographer 🤩
Can't thank Odette enough for photographing our wedding! The whole experience has been amazing from the communication in the run up to the wedding, the ease of completing necessary questionnaires to getting together for the pre-wedding photo shoot!
On the day of the wedding Odette calmed everyone's nerves, was so personable and made everyone feel at ease. Group photos, and bride and groom posed photos were great fun and her overall natural photography style was perfect.
