My Broadstairs photography services

Wedding photography in Broadstairs

If you’re getting married in the beautiful area of Broadstairs, it would be an honour to be your photographer. I get to know you and your partner first, learning your story so I can tell it through photographs. Tell me about you, your relationship, what’s meaningful to you, then let me work my magic.

I offer wedding photography packages for all celebrations, receptions and services, including:

  • Civil ceremonies
  • Weddings in places of worship
  • Blessings
  • Commitment ceremonies
  • Renewal of vows

Whether you choose to get married somewhere like the lovely Yarrow Hotel, historic Pierremont Hall, or anywhere else at all in Broadstairs, I’d love to be your photographer and will adapt to your chosen setting.

Maternity photography in Broadstairs

A maternity photoshoot is the perfect way to celebrate your pregnancy and bond with your baby before birth. Mums-to-be enjoy having some ‘me’ time – as a mother myself, I know how busy pregnancy can be, and how hard it can be to sit back, relax, and enjoy this special time. I design my shoots to be relaxing and enjoyable so you can have some time out and make some memories.

I love Broadstairs and can recommend some beautiful settings. If you have ideas already, let me know and I’ll start preparing!

Newborn and baby photography in Broadstairs

It’s such a privilege to meet new mums, dads and babies, capturing early moments on camera for you to keep forever. I work entirely to your requirements – if you have ideas for your shoot, just let me know. I’ll take care of the photographs, so you can focus on being a parent.

I can also arrange shoots with older babies and toddlers. Some parents choose to have multiple shoots as their little ones grow, recording the important milestones on camera. Let me know what works for you and your family.

Family photography in Broadstairs

I love meeting families and capturing happy memories on camera. I started my career as a family photographer, after taking photographs of my own children while on maternity leave. People saw my work, asked me to take photographs of their families too, and the rest is history. I make my family photoshoots fun and engaging, so you can enjoy each other’s company as well as coming away with a beautiful set of photographs. Whether you want a big shoot with the whole extended family, or a session with your nearest and dearest to create lasting memories, I can make it happen.

Special occasion photography in Broadstairs

If you have a special occasion to plan for, take away the stress of photography – let me take care of it for you. I can shoot any special occasion, with some of the most popular being:

  • Birthday parties
  • Christenings
  • Engagement parties
  • Baby showers
  • Anniversary celebrations

Another popular service I offer is engagement photoshoots. Big congratulations if you’ve recently got engaged! A photoshoot is the perfect way to celebrate your relationship, and to start planning for your wedding too. I get to know you and your fiancée, talking about the types of photographs you’d like and finding the perfect location. It’s the ideal way to practice for your wedding and to get comfortable in front of the camera.

Corporate photography in Broadstairs

If you own a business, you won’t need me to tell you how important a professional image is. Professional photography has a key part to play, showing your business’ personality and helping you appeal to your target customers.

My corporate photography packages will generally include:

  • Individual headshots
  • Team photographs
  • Branding and marketing shots
  • Product images
  • Photographs for social media
  • Photography for websites and general digital marketing
  • PR and internal comms images

If you need something different, please just let me know. Businesses use my images for digital marketing, social media updates, advertising, marketing collateral, and more.

Pet photography in Broadstairs

I’m a true animal lover and always have been, so being able to work with pets is one of the perks of the job. Some photographers might not be up to the challenge of getting a puppy to sit for a portrait, or persuading a cat to look into the camera, but I’ll embrace it with open arms! With patience, skill, and perhaps just a few treats, I’ll capture the perfect shots.

Pet portraits are lovely to display, give as gifts, or have as a keepsake. And the photoshoot will be so much fun too!

Event photography in Broadstairs

I have a background in events management, so I know how to navigate busy events, find the perfect spot and capture your ideal images. Whatever your event might be, I’ll be there, camera in hand, working away discretely and getting the perfect photos each and every time.

Some of the events I can shoot for you include:

  • Corporate functions
  • Balls and proms
  • Awards ceremonies
  • Product launches
  • Performances and concerts
  • Conferences and away days

If there are particular shots you need (perhaps for PR or social media), just let me know. I’ll always work to your requirements.

I would love the chance to chat with you about your photography needs, so please give me a ring on 07717 740 072 or email harriet@buckinghamphotography.co.uk
