Sophie and Mike
Lovely, Fun/enthusiastic (this definitely counts as one! :D) and Talented
We were lucky enough to win Ayesha’s competition to have her as the photographer at our wedding. After having admired her work on the blog, we couldn’t believe it! We first met about a year before the wedding and we went up to Manchester to talk through our day and get to know each other. Mike and I were pretty nervous as we’re both fairly shy, but as soon as we met Ayesha she instantly put us at ease: She’s so lovely and friendly.
We kept in contact throughout the year, touching base every now and again to keep each other updated about various things, which was reassuring to know that she hadn’t forgotten us in all that time. She is really flexible in making sure you get what you want and finding out what shots are a priority to you.
About a month before the wedding we had a Loveshoot. We had so much fun messing about with Ayesha on the beach and it was great to get to know how she worked. She is brilliantly enthusiastic always aiming to get the best shot: even getting stuck in the mud as the tide flowed in and climbing sand dunes.
She is not intrusive at all but still manages to get all the great shots. She was actually mistaken for a guest as she blends in so well. Ayesha is one of those people you feel like you’ve known for ages and it was really reassuring seeing her throughout the day. She’s so calm and bubbly always making you feel great. We were worried about coming across as awkward in the photos but they all look so natural and she really captured the unstaged look we were after beautifully.
The images are so stunning, they really captured the feeling of the day. Every time I look at them I’m instantly transported back. They have that beautiful whimsical quality full of laughter and love. I would recommend Ayesha wholeheartedly.
