Helen was the photographer at our wedding, all we can say is that the results were fantastic and her unique approach made the process very easy. Helen was so flexible and was quite happy to stay the length of the day, taking incredibly natural pictures throughout. We had a great choice of shots and many that would never be offered by your average package and she was able to really capture the mood of the day.I would not hesitate to recommend Helen for any Wedding, she was a pleasure to work with, you will not be disappointed.Michael Schirrmacher (and Samantha)

“We were very specific about what we wanted; informal and fun. Helen understood immediately what we wanted and perfectly captured the essence of the day. It was great fun having our photos taken and it added to the occasion perfectly. Even those who claimed they were unphotogenic were transformed by Helen.” Charlie and Emma Pettit, Wedding at The Bingham Hotel in Richmond, Surrey

Nikki and Titch
Helen was the photographer at our wedding and she captured our day perfectly. She was great fun to work with and was flexible in her approach. neither of us wanted to be standing around doing formal photos all afternoon nor did we want that for our guests the result was a series of relaxed formal and informal shots that captured the day perfectly. Helen was also flexible in how the photos were given to us which we appreciated a lot! Helen has subsequently become a friend and we will no doubt be using her to capture some fabulous photos of our baby once he arrives.Would I use Helen again without a shadow of a doubt! Nikki Earthrowl
I’ve worked with Helen as a second photographer on weddings several times and I’ve always been impressed with her ability to make what she does look so effortless.Client satisfaction is always her #1 priority and she goes the extra mile to get the shots without taking people out of the moment of the day. A tough balancing act, but one that she does so well.I’ve also assisted on a few corporate shoots and she was always exceptionally professional and took great care in getting the shots to fit the client’s brief.I’m lucky to have been able to work with some exceptional photographers in my time and Helen’s one of my favourites.
Just writing to confirm I received the photos I ordered and I am delighted with them. Thank you. I would like to add that I loved the way you worked your camera that day... capturing all the special feelings of joy on the many faces ....the beautiful setting and reflecting the personalities of both Caroline and Keith ......there were so many wonderful pictures it was difficult to choose.
Having seen Helen's portrait work I decided to see whether she could do her magic on me. I needed a corporate headshot, my partner also needed shots for his model card and we wanted some cool shots as a couple. First of all what really made a difference was that when I contacted Helen, even on email she was enthusiastic, full of ideas but also very pragmatic which was a great preparation for the day ahead. We spent a whole day shooting in a couple of locations and the whole day was not only really fulfilling but also fun! Helen was warm, easy going, really listened to what we needed rather than imposing her view but she was also very consultative and directional on what would look good. She was careful not to over-process them - I loved that she champions authenticity. I also appreciated her huge expertise in portrait work - she has a knack for knowing what will work with what you require the photo to do in the 'real' world so to speak. My corporate portrait looked fabulous, she captured me as professional and approachable and got lot of attention on LinkedIn and my colleagues were complementing me on it! My partner's model card already attracted a couple of fresh bookings. The important part was that she really shot him with warmth and sensitivity so his modelling assignment changed - he is now being asked to do more commercial work. All in all - I can't recommend Helen highly enough - professional, very dedicated and efficient and also - just fun to be with, crucial when you want to be relaxed and natural in front of camera.
Justine Warwick - Makeup Artist
I am a makeup artist who worked with Helen recently on a wedding in London, she is a lovely lady to work with, very professional but personable. The photographs she produced were stunning and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. I am proud to have her photographs in my portfolio.
Maria and Jon
Thank you for the wonderful experience, it was great fun. Helen had some fantastic ideas for locations for our wedding photographs and made the experience comfortable and enjoyable. The finished pictures were relieved very shortly after our wedding.
Helen photographed my parents' golden wedding anniversary party. Beautiful photos with limited effort from us (not hours of posing!) Definitely recommend her.
Antonia Osborne - Party Photos
I asked Helen to photograph my 50th birthday party at very short notice so I didn't have time to talk to her or give her details of the people I really wanted to be photographed. Despite that she took lovely photos of the party and guests. A number of people have commented on how quickly and unobtrusively she asked them to pose and how relaxed she made them feel. I had a wonderful night and Helen captured that perfectly in her photos and it has given me much pleasure re-living the evening through her photos. Would highly recommend her.
Shevy and Raph - Wedding
Dearest Helen, Raph and I would love to take the opportunity in thanking you sooo much for the wonderful work and the beautifully captured images you took on our wedding day. From the moment we spoke over the phone to the day we met at the wedding you were very comfortable to get along with. You enhanced our day with your fabulous personality which made taking pictures with you very easy. Thank you so much for capturing every moment of the wedding with precision and final details. Your imagination to capture the best and enhanced pictures for us was amazing and Raph and I are so happy that we got the opportunity to work with you . Anyone wanting an amazing photographer to capture their special day will NOT be disappointed with Helen. Lots of Love from Raph and I Helen and thank you soo much for the wonderful lifetime memories you captured for us. Xoxoxoxoxo
Sally Geeson's Acting Headshots
Hi Helen, thanks so much for a really happy day yesterday. I'm thrilled with my new photographs! I'm really enjoying being back in my acting career again and catching up with old friends. See you soon and don't forget to look out for my Anglian commercial! Love Sally x
Katherine and Florence
Blimey...you are clever Helen; these are just lovely and I’m so glad we found you
Laura Hall - Acting Headshots
Wonderful experience and lovely photos. For someone who hates having their photo taken, Helen makes you feel so comfortable and takes them from angles/ways that suit you. You get to review all the photos and adjust yourself where you see fit. Would really recommend. Plus she gave me Diet Coke and biscuits too, so what’s not to love.
Teresa Jennings - Acting Headshots
I am so happy with my head shots. Helen is friendly, efficient and great to work with. Highly recommended.
Steve Blacknell - Music Artist PR shots
Helen was a total pleasure to be with on the shoot and ha e more than 200% on the day ! Shots incredible!! Wonderful !!
Katie Warner - Haines MacGregor - Executive Portraits
Helen took some wonderful informal portrait shots of the team at Haines McGregor. With some clever adjustments to maximise the images she made us all look amazing! Thanks Helen, we'll certainly use you again! hainesmgregor.co.uk
Nina Schnitter - Executive Portraits
Helen did a fantastic job. I needed some professional pictures and also had some pictures taken for personal use. Both sets of photos were brilliant. She made me feel very comfortable and it was a pleasure working with her.
Anne Pringle - Portraits
I was quite nervous about having my photos taken, but Helen made it a very relaxing and fun experience, and I am delighted with the results! Thank you Helen!
Hayley Roe - Pet Portraits
Helen has a rare talent, a photographer who is able to put you at ease at the same time as being very clear directionally as to what she wants to get out of a shoot. She has an intuitive feel for her subject and always captures the raw essence of a person...or in my case the relationship between my dog and I! When we first spoke about a shoot with Alfie (said dog) and I, I was adamant that I didn't want a 'posed' photo shoot, and asked for her to follow us on a local walk to take some casual photos. After 10 minutes or so observing Alfie and I together, Helen mentioned there was a 'stillness and closeness' to our bond that would work well in more poses and 'to camera' shots. The results were amazing, and I've had many compliments and requests for her number since! Helen is a real people person, so whatever the circumstance she'll put you and your friends at ease. Following my photo shoot I also commissioned Helen for my corporate head shots which were equally fab...how she managed to make me look empathetic and commanding at the same time I'll never know!
Frizzby Fox - Band Portraits
Fabulous day shooting with Helen always professional and fun ending with the most amazing results.
Steve Jennings - Corporate Portraits
I am someone who normally shies away from being photographed. Helen did an excellent job of putting me at ease and taking the time needed to get the photograph I was seeking for my LinkedIn profile. I am very pleased with the results and delighted that I chose Helen for the work.
Louise - Portrait
Helen created some fantastic shots for a recent group portrait and has a great eye for composition, light and the best location for shots. She combines a very professional approach with engaging on a personal level to create a relaxed environment. She is able to capture the spirit of the moment in her shots so you memories are really brought to life.
Eleanor Winton - Portrait
Helen is everything you could want in a photographer - measured, calm, professional (and fun!) whilst also offering advice on how to achieve the best shot. She's brilliant both technically and creatively and was full of ideas that we wouldn't have come up with had she not been there. I'm so pleased with the photographs - a wonderful memento of a fabulous day. They will be going up all over the house for sure. THANK YOU Helen - you were amazing. xx
Gabrielle O'Donovan - Book Cover
Helen produced a super set of photos for activities to promote my new business book 'Making Organizational Change Stick (Routledge, 2017)'. It was a relaxed and fun session. Helen took care to involve me in the selection and editing process, and sent the final set to me the same day. I'm delighted with the results. Great job Helen! Thanks!
Maureen Osborne - Corporate Portraits
Thank you Helen for the relaxing and fun experience updating my professional headshots. Your smile and presence helped me get comfortable with something I was uncomfortable doing but which I felt was overdue (over 9 years since my last ones) and needed. You helped me accept and embrace and love the fact I am older and wiser and still me.
Elizabeth Bragonier - Portrait
Helen Jones did our wedding photography a few years back and we were delighted with her work. She took traditional as well as some more arty shots. She also went out of her way to make sure that she got snaps of everyone, which was no small task with our large and eclectic group. Helen was great at being everywhere at once without being obvious or obtrusive. I was so impressed with the number and quality of photos she took. I have no idea how she managed to get every angle and aspect of the day. She did a great job of keeping everyone happy and relaxed and also getting amazing candid shots. I felt that she really captured our personalities as well as those of our families and friends on this very special day. I would highly recommend Helen.
Andy Davison - Executive Portrait
Helen took a set of professional headshots for me. In the space of no time at all she took many - all of which are excellent and went immediately into use. She clearly knew her trade very well and conducted herself with the utmost professionalism. If I needed more? I'd definitely call Helen.
Colette Savage - Portraits
Helen is a wonder !!! I arrived for the photoshoot very apprehensive , never done this before and that was because I am one of those people who really doesn't like having my photo taken but needs must and I needed shots for my website. I did email and warn her I would not be an easy subject! I was amazed at how gently and subtly Helen worked her magic to make me feel totally at ease infant of a camera, the camera clicking away almost in the background. What I was expecting to be the most challenging part of my website development turned out to be the most incredible fun. Helen's relaxed yet highly professional approach and attention to detail was amazing. She has a keen eye knows how to make the most of her subject and really listens to what you want from the session and that I found most beneficial as I wasn't railroaded into something i wasn't happy with. The pictures are beyond my expectations and the whole experience was enjoyable, gave me confidence and I would highly recommend her approach and photos to anyone needing the care and attention to deliver what you really want that Helen provides. Thank you so so much Helen
Helen really puts you at ease and provided me with some really great headshots for work - would highly recommend her, particularly if you are not at ease in front of a camera.
