I want to take you back to how it felt...

Giving you the confidence to be yourself on your Wedding day is what makes photos magical.

A low key, calm, positive and honest presence. Catching moments between you, your guests and family. From the perspective of a wife, mum, daughter and friend.

I'll be your little beacon of support throughout the day. With you for the key moments and the quiet ones. Passing on advice built over 12 years and 100's of weddings. Helping through common pit falls, typical timelines and clever time savers.

Your choice of photographer shapes the memory of your wedding day.

The key to relaxed photos is to like and connect with the person taking them.

RELAX

Candid photos are my favourite. I am a people watcher. Gaging emotions to preempt the shot. I see raw emotion where people really let go and lean into themselves and their love.

Unscripted and real these images show your friends and family how they truly were in that moment and may be some of the photos you treasure more as time passes.

I am fully invested in your day. I will not take you away for hours. There will be no cheesy poses. A pre agreed (small) number of group shots will happen but won’t take over. Giving you the best experience possible.

ENJOY

Trust

Jenny Macaré

Photographer

A full time Wedding Photographer since 2012. I've watched for amazing skies and interpreted peoples interactions ever since I can remember.

Empathy combined with 12 years experience means I preempt moments - creating each image as the light, connection and surroundings align.

Happiest outdoors, somewhere high, over looking peaks or a dramatic backdrop. I love to feel like a small person in a big world. To hike a circular route with a flask of PG ending at a roaring fire gastro pub.

After a BA Hon's in photography at NUSAD I worked on magazine picture desks in London. But shooting and working for myself was always the goal. Moving to Derbyshire and having my boys pushed me to pursue this path and the enforced break of 20/21 has re affirmed the depth and importance of recording relationships, happenings and Wedding days.

Now based in a village by J25 of the M1 for speedy travel connections. My office overlooks open fields and running routes. A dream.

My biggest supporters (and constructive critics) are my husband Adam and our sons Beau and Leo. They love getting lost on a hike ;) I enjoy seeking out new walking routes. Planning the next trip to quirky air bnb's/canopy & stars. Cooking Thai (Massaman), trying to throw pottery (it's addictive). An artisan Coffee shop (shout out to The Cow Shed, Pip Tree Cafe and Apple Tree). Functional Fitness and a run (walk) run. Editing with a dark chocolate ginger biscuit to Off Menu, The Wolf & Owl and The Adam Buxton podcasts.

I love people at Weddings, finding out what connects each of them to you. Catching the split second that shows their personality. The joy, the support and the outfits. The euphoria of a wedding dance floor is like no other place, every generation dancing together is something I never take for granted. I love coming into your world for a day.

Wild places, DIY, tipi, family farm, city gallery, celebrant lead, less traditional Weddings are ones I love.

Couples wanting an alternative to the classic Wedding. Who care less about other peoples expectations and more about creating their own story are ones I connect with.

Jenny was our photographer for our engagement shoot and our Wedding.

I had to write this as I adore her, your Wedding is so special and Jenny is the photographer you need, so friendly, down to earth, understanding, personable, professional and I hope we stay in contact.

Our guests have not stopped commenting on how fabulous she was and such a nice human, from helping my step mum zip up her dress to giggling with us.

Jenny we both can't thank you enough for being at our wedding, let alone the incredible photos you take and service you provide.

You are a whole lot of lovely! We cannot thank you enough for capturing the most beautiful photos! When we started looking for a photographer, we didn't ever think that we would find someone that would fit so well into our Wedding day.

It was a pleasure to have you catching unforgettable memories. A huge thanks for listening to our thoughts and offering advise and guidance.

All of our family and friends commented on 'our lovely photographer' and have said how humble and kind you were and we certainly agree.

Thank you for catering for us. Our final memories are truly magical. Much Love!

Thank you for being such a wonderful part of our day. We both thought you were absolutely incredible. You made both of us feel at ease, you were so easy to talk to and just a wonderful person who we loved sharing our day with!

I don't think either of us knew what to expect from the day but you were always on hand to offer advice and help which we will be forever grateful for.

I am crying my eyes out at how beautiful the photos are! I imagine if anyone could see me they would have some questions haha!

They are stunningly beautiful. I am honestly speechless at just how perfect they are. It's transported me right back to our wedding and made me laugh and cry at the same time, thank you so much.

I feel like I need to have a viewing party for them!
