north yorkshire wedding photographer

Ace compliments from ace people... 

“I am such a self conscious person and hide behind a sense of humour and a pouty face when it comes to pictures, so I was extremely tense at the thought of someone taking pictures of me all day. However, my sister found Laura and I really liked her style, it’s perfect for capturing the natural emotions that run through your big day! The pictures are fantastic and I just want to say a huge thank you to Laura for being open to my insecurities, reassuring me and most importantly being completely honest and taking on board everything I suggested I was insecure about! We LOVE all the pictures and I will most certainly recommend Laura to anyone who wants great, natural, fun pictures on their big day. THANK YOU AGAIN!”

“Laura photographed our wedding in the summer and we absolutely LOVED the photos! We were able to have fun and felt relaxed around Laura, which was reflected in the photographs. Choosing a photographer is always such a massive part of your big day, so we were over the moon that the photographs captured the most special moments and even bits we missed as we were so busy on the day. I can’t imagine us ever getting bored of looking through our fantastic photos! Her professionalism, speed and down to earth personality made her stand out. The guests commented on how subtle yet personable she was. Thank you, Laura!”

Chloe & Adam, married at Barmbyfield Barns, August 2018

“Laura photographed our wedding a couple of weeks ago, we chose Laura because of her relaxed approach and mostly because she loves dogs! 
Laura was there when we needed to speak to her during wedding prep, she always responded quickly and was really flexible when we decided to add an extra hour to facilitate more dog photos! On the day Laura was AWESOME, she was there when I was getting ready and didn’t miss a thing. At the village hall she even disposed of my prawn tail when I couldn’t find anywhere to put it! We wanted the documentary style photographs we had seen on her website but on the day we elected to do a couple of quick group shots too to capture family we don’t see very often. Laura was happy to roll with this. The results are way beyond what we expected. First photo she sent us looked like it could have been in a magazine! When the slide show arrived we sat in Italy overlooking the coast laughing and crying at the wonderful images we saw. We’ve watched it so many times that the song goes round and round in my head when I run!!!! We got the final edits last week and we really couldn’t be happier she’s truly captured the fun love, laughter and relaxed atmosphere of the day. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laura for weddings and dog shots. We’d love to work with her again! We’d give her six stars if we could! Thank you Laura xxx 🐾❤️”

“Laura is AMAZING! It took me a full day of research to find the perfect photographer and it was well worth the effort, her photos speak for themselves! The best bit was that no one even noticed she was there and out of nowhere we get these incredible photos. We wanted to enjoy our day and not worry about getting the perfect photo...but the funny thing is we still got our perfect photo...and so many of them! I couldn’t recommend her enough she captured our day perfectly ❤️”

"Thank you once again for our amazing wedding photos. They are all absolutely brilliant, you've no idea how many times we've looked through them already!! You managed to capture moments that I had no idea were going on around me, you really are the ninja photographer!! Only problem is that you have given us one very tricky task... how do we pick photos for our wedding album when they are all flipping fab!! 
Thanks again for all your hard work, you went above and beyond!"

Claire & Paul, married at Fishlake Mill near Doncaster, September 2017


"So this is exactly why we booked Laura at Hip To Heart Photography. Her laid back documentary style is exactly what we were after. As the bride and groom we had so many people to see, there wasn't much time to stand back and watch everyone enjoying themselves. Laura's photos have allowed us to see parts of the day that we would have missed out on otherwise!! Would recommend to anyone.

We love them, let's do it all over again!"

We'll be highly recommending you to everyone we know!! The pictures are even better than I imagined they'd be :-) Just need to decide which ones to put on our walls now!"

Louise & Harry, married in Islington, April 2017


"We absolutely love them! They capture the day beautifully - which we knew they would, but in an even better way. Thank you so so much!!! We have chuckled or 'ahhed' at pretty much all of them and cant wait to show people!"
