A Warm Welcome
Wedding Photographer in Maidstone
Hi, I'm Charlene a Kent photographer based in Maidstone, specialising in documentary wedding photography and natural baby photography. My style is very natural, fun and unobtrusive. I like to stand back and document natural moments as they happen. As a Kent wedding photographer I'm primarily based in Maidstone, but I do love to travel all over the UK. Some local counties I've photographed in include; London, Essex, Surrey, Herts and Sussex. If you live further out then please do still get in touch, I do love to travel.
I love to document your love story from the moment it begins, so all of my wedding collections include an engagement photography session in Kent. Some couples are a little shy in front of the camera, so pre-wedding photo shoots are a great way to break the ice and know what to expect on the big day. I love being a Kent engagement photographer as it provides you with a nice way to document your way to becoming husband and wife.
For the past three years I have been awarded Finalist for 'Wedding photographer of the year' at the Kent Wedding Awards 2018, 2019 and 2020. You can also find my wedding photography in a number of blogs and publications including The English Wedding Blog and Your Kent Wedding.

Specialising as a natural wedding photographer in Maidstone
My wedding photography style is all about capturing you and your guests having fun in a real natural way. I don't want you to feel like your wedding day is a chore with having all those countless posed photos, so I stand back and document the day as it happens. Specialising in natural wedding photography, I'm there to capture the smiles, the laughter and every special moment in-between.
I believe that your wedding photographer should be one of the most important decisions for your day. After all a wedding cake gets eaten and you wear your wedding dress once, but your photographs are forever. Something to look back on for years to come. I want you to remember your day exactly as it happened. So no false poses, no awkward group shots, just real, fun, natural moments.

As a natural Kent baby photographer, I am able offer all kinds of baby photo shoots from newborn photography to cake smashes. My style is all about keeping things natural and organic. When baby gets a little older I love to capture them having as much fun as possible.
Based as a Kent newborn photographer, sessions take place at my home studio in Maidstone. My style of newborn photography is very simple and organic, photographing you and your baby in a lifestyle way. I focus on the important details of your baby, capturing those tiny feet or newborn expressions. Optional family shots are included in all packages as I think it's important to capture the new bonds between baby and your family. I pride myself in being a natural newborn photographer in Maidstone providing newborn photo shoots to Medway and the surrounding areas.
I offer a number of maternity packages including the popular Bump to Baby package- This is a great package if you are looking to capture the transition from pregnancy to motherhood. Pregnancy is a truly amazing time and passes by so quickly, so I want you to have beautiful images to remind you of this special time carrying your newborn baby. Being a Kent maternity photographer, maternity photo shoots are held in the studio in Loose, with a choice of simple natural set-ups. You can choose to bare all with bare bump or underwear shots or choose an outfit which compliments your growing baby bump. Being a maternity photographer in Kent, I strive to provide you with a way to remember your pregnancy in a natural timeless way.
From your baby's first smile to their first steps, they complete so many milestones throughout their first year. I offer milestone sessions which capture your baby every step of the way. After the newborn session the next milestone is when baby starts to sit up. This is a great time to capture their growing personality. As all my baby photography, sitter photography sessions are kept simple focusing purely on your babys new found personality. Sitter photography sessions are also included in the popular 'watch me grow' package. This package includes three of the important milestone sessions in babys first year. The newborn package, sitter package and a cake smash. This is a great way to capture your babys first year.
When your baby turns one it's their biggest triumph yet. They have learnt to smile, roll sit up, babble, crawl and some have even taken their first steps. A cake smash is a great way to celebrate all their achievements. Being a Kent cake smash photographer in Crayford, I aim to keep sessions simple keeping the focus purely on your baby enjoying their experience. A small cake and outfit is included with all cake smash photography packages.
Throughout the year I hold seasonal on location family photo sessions. They are a great way to capture the family bond and the love you share together. On location family photography sessions, works great outside as the kids can run free and go wild. Being a Kent photographer in Maidstone, creates some beautiful locations being in the heart of the countryside. Some of my favourite locations throughout the year include bluebell sessions and the ever popular lavender photo shoots. However if you prefer a more studio setting then of course you are welcome at my home studio in Crayford.
