My Canterbury photography services

Wedding photography in Canterbury

I’d love to be your wedding photographer in Canterbury – it’s always an honour to be part of a couple’s special day. Let’s talk about your perfect wedding and how I can make your day even more special, with beautiful photographs to help you remember it forever.

I offer packages for all types of weddings, receptions, celebrations and ceremonies, including:

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

Canterbury is a wonderful area to get married in, with many stunning venues such as The King’s School, Kent College Canterbury, and Canterbury Golf Club. Wherever you’re getting married, I’ll spend time getting to know you and your partner so I can convey your story through my photographs.

Maternity photography in Canterbury

Pregnancy is a special time in your life. Mums-to-be really do have a glow of anticipation and happiness – you might not see it yourself in the mirror (as a mum myself, I know how busy and tiring pregnancy can be), but I promise you will see it in your photographs. A maternity photoshoot is a chance for you to have some ‘me’ time, so you can relax, unwind, and show off your beautiful bump. It’s a lovely bonding experience for you and your baby before birth, and you can look back on your photographs together in future.

Newborn and baby photography in Canterbury

Life doesn’t get more exciting than the birth of your baby. I’m here to help you capture those precious early moments in your little one’s life, whenever the time is right for you and your family. It’s such a joy to meet new mums and dads, and to help you celebrate your new arrival.

If you’re looking for photographs of an older baby or toddler, I can help with that too. Some parents have multiple photoshoots as their babies grow, capturing all the major milestones. Whatever you’re looking for, I’ll have a bespoke package to suit you.

Family photography in Canterbury

I always love meeting families and taking meaningful photographs of people having fun together. I started my career as a family photographer, when people saw shots I’d taken of my own children and asked me to do the same for them. There’s something so special about working with families.

I make my sessions engaging for all members of the family so you can enjoy spending time together while capturing wonderful memories on camera too. I can photograph family groups of all sizes so gather everyone together and let’s have some fun with your photos.

Special occasion photography in Canterbury

I can photograph any special occasion for you, of any size, helping you look back on your memories for years to come. Some of the occasions I regularly shoot include:

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

I also offer engagement shoots to help you celebrate your news, and start getting ready for your big day (it’s never too soon to plan!) I’ll make sure you feel comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding, and we can find out which styles of photography you like.

Corporate photography in Canterbury

I work with businesses in Canterbury in need of professional images for digital marketing, social media, PR, press coverage, internal comms, marketing collateral, and anything else at all. My photography packages for businesses will generally include:

  • Individual headshots
  • Team photographs
  • Branding and marketing photography
  • Product photography
  • Photography for websites and digital marketing

If you need anything else, just ask. This is your shoot, for your business. My photography helps you build on your professional image, and show customers your personality as well. There’s a lot to be gained from professional photography.

Pet photography in Canterbury

As an animal lover, I know pets really are part of the family. Let me take heart-warming images of you and your animal companions that you can look back on for years to come (they look great displayed on the wall too). Your pet can also pose for their own beautiful portraits – I’m patient, encouraging and make sure I capture their unique personality. It can be tricky to get a puppy to pose, or to encourage a cat to look into the camera, but I love working with animals and have the skills to make your shoot a success.

Event photography in Canterbury

I can shoot events of all sizes in Canterbury, providing you with custom photography for marketing PR, social media and more – you can use your images however you’d like. I’ve photographed a wide range of events, including:

  • Business functions
  • Awards ceremonies
  • Showcases and performances
  • Balls and proms
  • Product launches
  • Conferences

I started my career in events management so I know how to navigate busy environments very successfully, getting you your perfect shots. I’d love to hear more about your event and how I can help you make it a success with tailored, professional images.

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
