It’s always easier to let me couples do the talking for me! There are lots more on my Facebook page too if you get chance to have a read x

We had the absolute pleasure of having Naomi from Lush Imaging as our wedding photographer in May.
For starters, she was so warm and friendly the whole day, everyone felt at ease with her around and it really just felt like she was another guest (albeit a rather talented one!).
We just knew we could rely on her to be doing the right thing. We had so many friends tell us afterwards that they kept seeing Naomi taking photos of lots of the details, never sitting still. To be honest I do not remember seeing Naomi for the whole ceremony – but she was definitely there because the photos are absolutely amazing! It’s so great to look back on them because it all goes so fast!
The first look at the photos I cried – they just captured the feeling of the day so well and completely took us back to the day. All our friends and family have said that looking at the photos, you really get the feel for the day – all the love, laughter and happiness from everyone.The photos fill us with such joy, and I also can’t get over how stylish and beautiful she made us look! You always wonder if your photos will turn out like the ones on all the bridal blogs – and they just exceeded our expectations.
Both Ben and I have said that our favourite part of the day was disappearing off with Naomi for our photos. We were so comfortable with her and it felt like such precious moments we were getting to spend together on such an important day.
We couldn’t recommend Naomi highly enough, from the first meet up, all the organising, on the day working seamlessly with all the other suppliers and our guests, and the post wedding communication, she has been really really amazing. Could not have asked for more and will be eternally grateful for such a brilliant everlasting capture of our Big Day!

“Cannot recommend Lush Imaging highly enough. From first contact to final photos, Naomi was kind, considerate and very reassuring, not to mention incredibly patient with us! Her style of shooting was perfect for our relaxed West Country wedding, and we’ll treasure the photos forever.
She somehow (magically) shot throughout the day without once holding up the festivities or ever intruding upon “the moment.” She managed to capture my “getting ready” shots in a tiny attic room, with a sloping roof, minimal light and barely enough room for me and the bridesmaids – taking everything in her stride and keeping me calm with lots of friendly chat and encouragement.
If you’re a little nervous about having your picture taken, Lush Imaging is definitely the way to go: even our more posed photos felt very laid back, and taking them was a million miles from the stressful situation that I worried it might be. I credit this entirely to Naomi’s talent for beautiful candid shots and skill at noticing the little details that make your day.”

Dan & Fay, Kingscote Barn
“Naomi! Thank you so so much! You were incredible yesterday! We are so truly grateful from the bottom of our hearts for your amazing spirit throughout the day – you were the air of calm and expertise when the dress dramatics unfolded and a real trooper getting everyone together for the group shots! Apologies it was so hard to rally the troops! Thank you for spending so much time for our couple shots and for experimenting with the night shots! Cannot wait to see the pictures, we would love to go for the album. We and everyone else today have been singing your praises!! Thank you for being there for us and for being so thoughtful! Also you stayed so late which was incredibly kind and we felt went above and beyond!! Thank you for the Bob pic online, it’s amazing we can’t wait to see the rest! Have a lovely time in Paris!! Again, you’re literally amazing, we are so happy you shared our day with us!Xxx”

“Where to start, what a total super star! Naomi came highly recommended and we are so pleased we booked her.
A wedding photographer is part of such a personal and precious time, it was so important to us that we found one we clicked with.
From start to finish Naomi was just wonderful, putting us at ease, making helpful suggestions and offering advice on timings to make the day run as smoothly as possible. From the moment she arrived on the morning of the wedding she just slotted right in, capturing the moments whilst also being part of the party.
We really wanted the day to be calm and relaxed and Naomi played a big part of allowing that to happen.
We are completely thrilled with our photos, it took us a few times looking at them to take them all in! She also offers so many wonderful and thoughtful touches along the way that seem to come at the perfect time. We honestly couldn’t recommend Naomi highly enough…thank you! x”
Kate & Liam, Kingscote Barn
A big thank you for being so wonderful at our wedding on Sunday Naomi! From the moment you arrived you made us feel so at ease and relaxed. You’re so lovely and your warm personality really helped us to enjoy every moment. Thank you also for all your help with getting me ready in the morning too- you were fab! We can’t wait to see the pictures now With much love and thanks, Kate & Liam x
Edlene & Precky, Hyde Barn
“Just a quick message to say thank you for being our perfect photographer!! We love our photos and are so pleased we picked you. We asked for lots for natural ones which is exactly what we got. I remember you saying not to worry about the photos, you will be like a ninja, we wont even know you are there. That is exactly what happened! I didn’t notice you snapping away at all. You made us all feel really comfortable after us both being pretty nervous about being followed around with a camera! Family members and wedding party had lots of nice things to say about you.
I only just looked at the USB today and there are pics on there I hadn’t seen yet which was a lovely surprise. Plus still have the excitement of picking photos for the album!! Although there is no rush to get that done.
Thank you once again you amazing lady.
Much love, Edlene and Precky xx”

“Thank you so much! We spent last night pretty much just flicking through them over and over again. How we’re going to pick a choice few to go on the wall I don’t know. THANK YOU SO MUCH! 🙂
Laura & Stu, The Glassboat, Bristol
We just wanted to say a massive thank you. Our Wedding album is a work of art! The photographs are to perfection and the layout and style is just perfect in every way :0)
Since collecting our parcel from you we finally moved house. It had been absolutely carnage with moving millions of boxes into a ‘project house’. We decided to keep our exciting parcel until last night, when we held a house warming, wedding photograph showing, champs night. We unveiled our photo album and everyone’s eyes just sparkled to see your work.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Love, Laura & Stuart.
I was very lucky to have recently been nominated for the Industry Awards. I was shortlisted as best in the South West! So blooming pleased! The best bit of it all were the lovely comments from some of the couples I’ve had the pleasure of photographing and I’m super touched, I’d love to share! :
“We couldn’t have asked for more. Working as an art director at Saatchi & Saatchi I come across a lot of photographers, few are as professional and genuinely lovely as Naomi.
“Naomi’s warm, friendly manner made me feel incredibly relaxed during my wedding day. She really was amazing, so discreet and fully understood our vision for the day. Our photos are incredible, a wonderful reminder of how perfect our day was. We would definitely recommend Lush Photography to others looking for a wonderful photographer for their special day.”
“We were so pleased that we found Naomi. She’s a lovely person, discrete and a fab creative photographer-everything you want from your wedding photographer. Your wedding photos are your lasting memories of your special day, so it’s important they tell the storey perfectly. Our day was non traditional, but Naomi captured it beautifully. We laugh and get chocked up every time we look at them. Everyone that has seen our album thinks they are the nicest wedding photos ever – even more than their own!”
“Her style of photography was in-keeping with our wedding and her friendly, personable nature. She is so easy to get on with, from the moment we met her we knew she was the photographer we had to have.”
“Personable and understanding of what we really wanted and delivered it in such an unassuming and non intrusive way. All the guests loved her and were so pleased with the images. Our photo album is trully out of this world but our taylor made video was the real highlight. Passionate about her craft.”
“Lush Imaging was incredibly enjoyable to work with, she has amazing people skills to ensure everyone feels relaxed and enjoys it. This combined with her natural/journalistic/uninvasive style means you get absolutely incredible photos without even realising she is there.”
“I loved the emotion and feeling in her images. She manages to catch you when you’re not expecting it and still make you look great! She’s also the most lovely person and we felt completely safe in her hands”

“Lush imaging or Naomi’s photography is totally, well Lush (say with a welsh Gavin and Stacey accent if preferred). I looked that word up recently and it means – luxuriant, rich, abundant, exuberant. If ever a company or a person embodied the ‘brand’ it’s here. Both the photos and the experience are rich, luxuriant, abundant ( in what they say, and the choice we had) and exuberant, or bouncy and full of life!
Naomi followed us to our dream location of Victoria Falls in africa for our wedding. Not only did she ‘fit in’ on the day, but made our guests feel so at ease with her as a person throughout the trip – ensuring they were natural and comfortable on the day (even the most camera shy!). This was one of the most important things for us, to not feel we were stopping and starting for photos, but just for it to be part of the day. Naomi was amazing at this element – not even remembering her being there mostly, but when she did ‘direct’ if needed it was friendly and often filled a moment that needed filling.
Our day was a small affair, but the photos capture the sense of space, location and fullness of the event – both in what we did but the love and happiness. Its hard sometimes when you go to spectacular locations – nothing seems to capture the sense of the place and the beauty – but Naomi did just that with spring african colors and the enormity of the mighty zambezi coming through.
We now live abroad away from our family and friends and have many of the photographs up in our new farm house – i love to relive the day walking through the halls of the house seeing the moments I don’t recall as ‘milestones’ on the day, but looking back are so important – a glance to my dad, or a smile to a friend who was beaming – things that Naomi and lush do notice in that moment and capture for you.
Thank you so much lush and Naomi!
Love the Trouws xx
The Callaghan’s Day – Natalie and Tommy
“On our special day we wanted everything to be perfect! It quite effortlessly was the most magical day of our lives. And because of Naomi’s professionalism and brilliance we can relive our magical Wedding Day again and again.
The Wedding photographs she took were sensational and her planning and attention to detail were equally superb.
Thank you Naomi, especially for our ‘jumping in the vines’ photograph – magnificent! The Callaghans x x”
The Bliss Wedding – Gary & Faye
“Naomi’s photography is simply amazing. Her enthusiasm on the day and for photography in general, ensured that every aspect of our special day was captured, bringing out all the fun, happiness and passion making each photo a delightful memory of our wedding.
As the months pass and the wedding seems further away, we love to revisit the photos. Each time it seems we see something new, and the photos spark more memories and discussion of the day. This was very important to us; to keep these special memories alive forever.
An added surprise was seeing the short video Naomi created from some of the best photos of the day; this captured all our favourite shots and reduced me to happy tears!
Other friends have viewed our photos and will admit they wish they’d seen Naomi’s photography before they got married. Naomi comes highly recommended, she is dedicated to her work and it all comes so naturally to her. It was a pleasure to have Naomi as our photographer and part of our special day.”
