ME

I’m Laura May and I’m a wedding photographer living in the beautiful village of Shifnal in Shropshire, but I shoot weddings all over the UK including Birmingham, London, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Cheshire.

I live in a bijou (it really is tiny) house with my fella Dave and our French Bulldog, Reggie.

Reggie is quite possibly my most favourite living thing in the world. When I’m not photographing you’ll find me walking Reggie or snuggling on the sofa with Reggie perfecting my ability to binge watch Netflix! I also love to spend time with my neices and nephew, they really do make my heart smile.

I’m partial to a bit of live music; be it gigs or festivals. I love Wolverhampton Civic and attended Glastonbury five times but my lucky “I can always get tickets!” fingers lost their luck after 2010 and haven’t been since *sad face*. These days you’re more likely to find me sipping a gin or a pint of Aspells in my local beer garden!

I’d really love it if you popped over to read about ‘My Story‘ – I share with you all the details of how I arrived here, wriritng this. It all started with my Grandad and how I’m self-taught with some training here and there but my biggest investment was training with lifestyle wedding photographer Kate Hopewell-Smith at her training school, ByLumiere.

WEDDINGS

I believe weddings are all about enjoying yourself! Who cares about chair covers or formalities? I believe you should do your wedding day, your way. Spend the day with your favourite people and dance wildly (BALTER!) to the band. Perfect.

TRAVELLING

Starbucks Mint Blend Tea

I couldn’t live without...you guessed - Reggie, travelling and Starbucks Mint blend tea - I'm OBSESSED with it. Have you tried it? It's a delicious blend of various mints. I spend a lot of time at the cinema with Dave as we have one those unlimted cards, but nothing makes me happier than travelling around the world and adding new stamps to my passport. It's a business goal to spend every January in a far flung hot destination practising yoga and leave the boys at home together.

AND I can't let you go without sharing with you my addiction to Walkers Thai Sweet Chilli Sensations. Amen to them.

p.s I have a HUGE fear of pigeons.

MY STORY

How I ended up right here. Typing this…

My love of creating memories led me down the road to becoming a wedding photographer. I’ve been a photographer for years and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Do I miss the 9-5pm office job? No.
