Heather Chadwick

I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer based in Gloucestershire.  I offer tailored-made packages for your individual needs at each event or shoot.  My photography captures unforgettable moments at key events in your life.  I can take it even one or two steps further, in offering a journal of your life, capturing all your amazing memories to build your life story in pictures, professionally.

A selection of my suggested extra memories to capture, in addition to the obvious:

  • Getting engaged
  • Pregnant with first child and not forgetting second and third...
  • Welcoming your new puppy
  • Annual family portrait
  • Starting up your own business
  • Turning 18 or 21 or both!
  • Turning 30
  • Turing 40 - the new 30!
  • Turning 50 - the new 40!
  • 17th wedding anniversary - why not!

These are just a selection, I am sure you can think of more.

To take this even further, I also offer Purely You shoots.  There should always be a reason to invest time on you; you deserve it. Clients who have undergone the Purely You experience leave with a renewed confidence and the liberty of taking time out for just 'you'. For more information, please visit my Purely You page.

Why did I take up portrait and wedding photography?

I like to think I’ve led a varied life and therefore completely understand the need to hold on to valuable memories. Pictures you can treasure for years to come are what drive the creativity behind each image. Having a visual collection of your life story that you, your family and friends can look back on for years to come is something precious to cherish.

I first picked up a camera at an early age and my enthusiasm has never abated. Born in Lancashire, I moved to Devon when I was four and grew up on the family farm. My own journey unfolded with time spent in London before travelling the world to Australia and the Far East – this photogenic continent, rich in colour and expression led to some amazing images.

On moving to the Cotswolds eight years ago with my husband and two children, I have continued to develop my love of photography and it is now a full time business in its own right.

I get to be behind a camera, capturing a moment in time and sharing it with those who will treasure it for years. How great is that!
