Kind Words...

“Lou photographed my best friend’s wedding last year so when I started planning my wedding I knew I needed her to do ours. She’s like a breath of fresh air!! Lou was brilliant throughout, even helping me into my dress and keeping me calm!! We’ve seen a sneaky peak of a couple of pictures which are absolutely amazing!!! I can’t waaait to see the rest. Really couldn’t recommend her enough!! Every bride needs a Lou!! I just wish we could do it al over again xxxx” – Kerry Cuttell

“Lou took photos of my best friend’s wedding on saturday at the lovely Dumbleton Hall. From the start of the morning she was welcoming and friendly and everyone was at complete ease with her. Lou went above and beyond the duties of a photographer and was so helpful. I think I speak on behalf of everyone when I say I felt like I’d known her forever and she was part of the family. Just from the few photos I have seen I know they will all be fabulous and I can’t recommend her enough!! Thank you so much Lou, you did Simon and Louise proud!!” – Emma Braker

If you are looking for a photographer and are on this page- stop right now, you’ve found her! Lou did our wedding December 2016 and I can honestly say from the moment we met her she has been fantastic in every single way.

We had to change our wedding date due to a first venue falling through but by this point after meeting her we knew that our date had to fit to ensure Lou could still be there, she was completely understanding and open to changing the dates, no problems. What is special about Lou is that you immediately feel you’ve known her years, she is so lovely and easy to get on with, it’s comfortable and that’s what brings out the best photos!

Poor Lou should have been fed up with us- we had to ensure that no direct flash was used (and chose a nice dark venue just to be helpful), as soon as she knew this she took it in her stride, researched and asked around about how she can make it work best, can truly tell she cares about the person in front of her as well as her work! On the day my very drunk brother thought it would be a great idea to put her in a headlock and drag her on the dance floor! Lou took this so well, laughing along and even joined in with the dancing (she was also forced by the hubby).

Her photos speak for themselves. The ones you see on her page aren’t exceptions, all of her pictures are stunning. We have got our work cut out deciding what to frame!! We love all of them and feel they capture the day as it was. Lou has an eye for detail and spotted great spots/options for portraits that we didn’t see ourselves!

I’ve rambled enough and could say so much more but will shut up. In a nutshell, you will not regret choosing Lou. She is fab and as a bonus a very reasonable price! I see her now as a friend and will miss our Facebook chats between chatting wedding! Thank you so much Lou!! Our day wouldn’t have been the same without you” – Michaela & Tom Bradshaw

“We couldn’t have been luckier having Lou, Tickle Photography, as our wedding photographer! We didn’t consider any other because of her charisma and incredible connection with people! She was so friendly and relaxed it was like she knew everyone and that is what is needed when someone in going to catch a special moment… connection! She was a massive help with everything! Help us to make the day go smoothly and with zero stress. Another pro is that she speaks fluent effortless Spanish. My Mother doesn’t speak any English but Lou made her feel comfortable and got some brilliant shots of the whole family seaminglessly switching between the two languages. She photographed us at all different periods throughout the day, which helped her to get some amazing images using the different types of light to perfect effect. Just awesome! We could continue talking about her implacable job but the photo gallery we received of our wedding photos speaks for itself. This is testimony to her professionalism and experience. Thanks Lou!” – Carolina & Tony Cristofoli

“I would like to say a big thank you to Lou who did our wedding photography. Excellent, friendly service, which we highly recommend. Our photos are lovely. We have a child with additional needs and she was brilliant with him. Definitely use Tickle Photography again. Very, very satisfied customers.” – Tracy & Michael Hopper

“Recently announced my baby news to the world (and Facebook) with the help of Tickle Photography. Lou was amazing and even got a smile out of my half daughter (that’s worth 5 stars on its own!!) We had such a fun day in the park. The photos were amazing, everyone has commented on how good they are. I cannot wait until next time we meet for our next lot of photos in preparation for the gender announcement. Thank you so much x” – Emma-Louise Tschbenko

“Lou did a great job. Kept me calm, helped me do jobs that weren’t even part of photography. Lovely girl really easy going. Demo recommend her. Thank you Lou xxx” – Marie & Kenny Walton

“This lady has a heart of gold I cannot thank her enough for capturing special memories today, her work is fantastic, and is just a wonderful person thank you so much xxx.” – Emma Evans

“Lou was amazing! She helped me into my dress and made me feel at ease straight away. I’ve had a number of people who were at the wedding mention how fab Lou was, friendly and ready to get involved. She put up with our unruly groomsmen and Navy boys and had a smile all day long! Cannot recommend her enough!!” – Robyn & Sam Bonnett

“Lou was the photographer at my brothers wedding and to say she was amazing is an under statement. She was still there snapping away until 10 pm. She was great with everybody from the youngest child to the oldest person there. She had a smile on her face from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. Nobody will be disappointed if they book Tickle photography.” – Peter Milligan

“Very professional service from a lovely young lady.” – John Walker

 What can I say other than WOW! From the very beginning Lou has been incredible! Our engagement shoot took place at Cannock Chase with our children, where Lou went above and beyond to get the pictures we wanted (including laying down in a huge muddy puddle). The photos were so incredible we used them as our wedding invitations! On the day Lou ensured everything ran smoothly, and honestly it was more like having another friend there than just a photographer. Again the photos were stunning and we really couldn’t have been happier with them. We had sneak peaks of some of our pictures very quickly, and again showing how fantastic this lady is, she then drive straight from work to us over an hour away just so we could have our album in time for Christmas. Lou you are amazing! I really couldn’t recommend you highly enough, your pictures speak for themselves, but for us it was the personal service you provided that really blew us away.” – Becky & Ben McLeod

“Lou and Mark I absolutely love you, you are absolutely amazing and words cannot explain how fantastic you are and how easy you made our wedding photos. You’re a true artist I have so much respect for you guys” – Theo James

“Big Thank you to Tickle photography for capturing amazing moments! Lou is an excellent photographer with great attention to detail.  We are so happy to have fantastic wedding photos created by an awesome photographer and her modern fancy gadgets and equipment.” – Merna & Sam Dawood

“Lou did the photos at my son’s wedding in Sept 2016, great service from a friendly and talented professional. Traditional and innovative shots, all great quality.” – Angela Bonnett

Amazing photographer!! Couldn’t fault Lou at all! Such a laugh and a lovely person who is amazing st what she does!” – Jade & Andy Povey

“I cannot describe in words how truly amazing this young woman is. So many of our wedding guests commented on her professionalism as well as her fantastic sense of humour. We booked Lou just over a year ago she came to the house showed us some of her photographs and explained what was included in her packages, at that moment more than anything your booking the person you see before you, not what they may or may not be able to create with a camera. And we certainly picked well! Lou is friendly, helpful, honest and as we found out over the weekend just a true artist, she works so hard, does crazy hours, travels hundreds of miles and still greets you with a smile everytime she speaks to you. Myself and my partner have so much respect for this lady it is unbelievable. She made the wedding photography so easy, non-stressful and went above and beyond even dropping her dinner grabbing her camera from her car and taking more photographs when she was supposed to be leaving. From all the stress that planning a wedding creates Lou makes sure that photography isn’t one of them.
We requested two photographers for our wedding and the gentleman that Lou came with was also absolutely amazing to work with they both felt like wedding guests and bounced off each other. We had such a great day but Sunday was a realisation that we won’t really see these guys again so absolutely gutted! We could not recommend her highly enough” – Lauren & Theo James

“We had Lou photograph our wedding back in August and I could not recommend this Lady enough ! From the first time we met her even till now she has always been so helpful and easy to talk to, nothing is too much trouble.
On the day, everyone commented on how hard she worked and how lovely she was, even to the point where she let some of the younger page boys help her with the shots.
She captured all the special moments of our day and even more that I didn’t expect. I will definitely use her again, for any special occasion. I love my photos and that’s all thanks to Lou!”  – Leah & Alastair Herd

“I booked Lou in August 2017 to photograph the moment I proposed. I knew she would do a fantastic job as I had seen much of her work before. She didn’t just meet my expectations, but exceeded them. She was so professional and she is so easy to get along with. She had some great ideas thus producing some amazing pictures. My fiancee and myself were so impressed that we have now booked her for our wedding.” – Rob Stevens

“When working alongside Lou in a professional environment, she provided me with several head shots for my professional profiles. The quality of photo was fantastic. As someone who doesn’t like having photos taken of myself Lou put me at ease and made me feel extremely comfortable.” – Amber Ford

“An Amazing photographer, would highly recommend! Thank you Lou! O x” – Owen & Natalie Riley

 “We loved having Lou doing our recent xmas and new year photos she was amazing and Evie loved you x” – Samantha Ward

“Lou photographed my wedding in October and she was absolutely amazing!! We heard nothing but amazing things from friends and family about her after the event! I was really happy with the fact I didn’t have to ‘direct’ her. She arrived when I was having my hair done and she just started taking shots, she took pictures of my shoes, dress, jewellery and of the bridal party and I never once felt rushed or like I had to focus on Lou, unlike I’ve seen brides do at other weddings I’ve attended. The pictures were amazing, so beautiful. She really has an eye for small details and definitely went above and beyond to scout out some wonderful shots, even going as far as to notice a near by fair ride, creating some of our favourite shots of the night.” – Kristin & Matthew Hallas

“Lou was great! We met at the venue beforehand and she gave us a clear picture of what would happen on the day. She is totally professional and makes sure you feel comfortable. My wife now wants to fly Lou out to Taiwan for our traditional Taiwanese reception!! We couldn’t thank her more and above all else, she took some cracking photos!! Would highly recommend.” – Matt Kenworthy

“Lou was our wedding photographer on June 22nd. She did an amazing job was friendly kind thoughtful. Nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend. Lou stepped in at the last minute as we were let down. I am so glad she did as we had an amazing day. Big thank you Lou for making our day so special. Sue & Paul xx” – Sue & Paul Milligan

Nothing was too much trouble, not only is Lou an amazing photographer but she’s a chief dress “flumper” a brill handbag holder and such a genuine down to earth lovely person! I cannot thank you enough! 5*s does not give you enough credit! You made our day brilliant and so hassle free and relaxed! You are fab hunny, no amount of praise is good enough for you! THANK YOU xx” – Emily Louise & Adam Hardstaff

“Lou was my wedding photographer when we wed in September. I can’t even think about where to start… The whole experience with Lou was above and beyond.  Communicating with her before we even met was so great I felt like I’d known her for years. When we met for a chat before the big day it was like I was meeting a friend I’d known forever.

She was full of great advice, so understanding and took away so much stress. She was a dream and this was even before the wedding.

She was the same on the wedding day. She was as excited as my bridesmaids which meant everyone loved her and this showed in the photos. She captured the best moments of the kids that were there as she took the time to get to know them so they were comfortable with her snapping away in front of them all day.

Lou made sure she knew who everyone was so that she could capture photos of those who I wanted to have in photos forever. She blended in so well that the quality of the photos that we have are so natural that they captured the feel of the day.

My husband and I could have easy been swept away in all of the craze of the wedding day but we had moments where Lou would take us away to get shots in different lights from morning to evening and every time telling us to take a minute to “take it all in”. Things like this have made our memories last in such detail to this day. Everyone says “it’s over in a heartbeat” Lou’s professionalism really helped us take a step back and appreciate the moment so for us it wasn’t.

To this day when we talk about our wedding with our family and guests they still mention Lou and say “oh gosh! Remember how fab your photographer was? Wasn’t she fab”

I haven’t even had a chance to tell you or her how thrilled we were with the quality of her photos! Jeez… there were so many and every single one was perfect. Every time we whip out the photos it’s like we were there all over again. We can relive the wonder of our magical day over and over again… For years. Forever. And that wonderful thing is all because of Lou and her quality work!

Brides and grooms to be… If you’re looking for a photographer. Stop right now. You’ve found her. She’s worth more than five stars. She’s wonderful.

(Sorry Lou for this review taking so long, I’m rubbish at managing my time)” – Kelly & James Harwood

“Wow! Lou really is a diamond! From first contact to our goodbyes after she shot our wedding, Lou has always been friendly and accommodating. I can not wait to see our photos, she put a lot of effort into our day and her photo booth is amazing!!!” – Emma & Nigel Jenkins

“We got married upon the 15th August 2015. When the time came to look for a photographer, I found Lou and after a few exchanged emails and seeing how talented she was. I found the our photographer.

In the run up to the wedding Lou was a great help, she held my hand. I didn’t have a clue regarding timings or anything. Lou was on hand to answer any question I had. Lou was also a great support, as I had not long lost my mum, so was finding times hard. Again, Lou was always there to listen, which I’m sure is not in her job description but that’s just Lou. An amazing woman, which I now close as a friend.

Forward to the wedding… Lou was great, never intrusive with a high level of professionalism. My family even remarked on what a wonderful lady she is. Before the wedding, I had showen family members her work and they couldn’t believe how talented she was and was very surprised with her pricing, as they had paid a lot for their weddings and the qulity was not as good.

My husband and I will be starting a family next year, so will be calling upon Lou’s services for a bump and thereafter shoots. Wouldn’t think to look else where. So if you are wanting someone who’s work is first class, will take the time to help you along a stressful journey and who’s photos are amazing, Lou is your girl.

Thank you again, Paul and Regina – Mr & Mrs Owen”

All of the bridal party loved Lou when she was with us getting ready and the groomsmen had a good laugh with her too.
Lou really listened to us when we said we didn’t want too many forced photos and wanted natural ones that captured special moments.
Everyone has had nothing but good things to say about Lou and the groom and I really feel like she went above and beyond for us.
We have had one photo so far and we absolutely love it, so we are really looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos – we know they will be amazing!
