Ellen Starrett

For as long as I can remember I’ve been passionate about photography, and that love continues to grow. I’ve been a professional photographer since I was 18, working alongside many national and international photographers. While I’m experienced in many areas of the industry, weddings are by far my favourite. I have a natural talent for connecting with people and can translate this into personalised images that reflect the essence of my clients. I’m at my happiest when I capture that perfect image that sums up a day, a moment, a life.

Danielle Minett

I have a gift for capturing your story – for reflecting who you really are. My talent is enabling people to feel relaxed and comfortable in front of a camera – capturing a natural and candid state which reflects who my clients really are. I like to be as unobtrusive as possible so that I can capture intimate and honest moments as they happen. This means I can help create stunning memories that you can cherish and keep as a testament to your love, and your life.

Danielle was an absolute delight to work with and the images speak for themselves. She shot in a natural, casual way (exactly what we wanted). My guests barely knew she was there. Such a pro!

I wouldn’t chose anyone but Natural Lights Photography for my photos. I think the results speak for themselves but they make the whole experience fun and easy going with no awquardness about being in front of the camera. There dedication to the art and work is admirable and definitely something you don’t see I everyone. Weather it is family portraits, wedding portraits or anything in-between. I can’t recommend them enough. Awesome people and awesome photographers!

Natural Lights photography recently covered our wedding. From start to finish they were complete professionals. The direction, the ability to capture the right moments and there friendly nature made the whole experience unforgettable. We knew the prints would be amazing but we were still blown away with the results. Couldn’t recommend more highly! We’re are so happy we chose them!

The Natural Lights Photography team are highly talented photographers with great energy and a real creative flare. They have photographed both my pre wedding shoot and wedding, my photos are incredible and I would highly recommend them as they are a pleasure to work with and they make the whole Experience enjoyable. My husband and I loved having them shoot for us and I look forward to using Natural Light’s plenty in the future

In 2011 Danielle photographed my cousins wedding and the pictures were amazing! Last week she photographed my 8 week daughter. She had a hard morning with my squirming VERY awake and "not having anything to do with it" baby and the pictures are incredible! If you're looking for a great photographer, Danielle is your lady! Thankyou so much!
