"We highly recommend Lou Westbrook photography. She has exceeded our expectations in every possible way and our experience with her is second to none. If Lou is not available for your wedding date, as unreasonable as this might sound, we would suggest you move your wedding date according to her availability. You and your partner will not regret it. This is because the happiest moments of your lives together are meant to be captured by her, hands down the best photographer that your wedding deserves. Our guests even said how comfortable she made them feel, we had planned to have our photos by the river at wetherby. it was possibly the hottest weekend of the year so everyone decided to be down by the river. We drove around looking for some where else Lou spotted a lovely shaded place on the out skirts of town centre. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos x"
"I hired Louise for my 40th Birthday. She was amazingly organised and completely understood my brief. The photos went above and beyond what I expected. The pictures are amazing, a great blend of candid, natural shots and some amazing group ones. I could not be happier with her service or the results. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
"Not even been our wedding yet but so impressed with our engagement shoot that it's left me so excited for Louise to be joining us on our big day and I have all my confidence in her. Very talented woman and thank you for our photos"
"Louise took great photos, she was very flexible and went out of her way to make sure I got what I wanted, and also importantly she was lovely to work with!"
"Thank you Louise for some fantastic photos, you really captured the sense of the occasion as well as the lovely venue and surroundings. Having looked at all the photos we really are spoilt for choice and can't decide which to get printed! It was great to meet you before the 'big day' at the venue and go through our ideas for the location for the shots. On the day, you were so patient while trying to rally everyone into positions. We can't wait to order our prints and have them displayed in our home as a lovely reminder of our perfect day! "
"We are so grateful to Louise for capturing the essence of our Wedding Day in March. Lou is friendly, professional and creative. She provided really useful advice during the run up to the day which helped us plan and make the best use of the space. We had selected a rather unusual venue - full of convex mirrors, very reflective windows and narrow spaces! Lou loved the challenge and did a fantastic job with understanding the space and the light. But most importantly, she captured the warmth and happiness of the day. Lou is easy to work with and was quick to come up with a solution when rain meant we couldn't take group photos where we'd originally planned. Since the wedding too, Louise has been quick to turn around a beautiful gallery of photos and continues to advise us about printing etc. Thank you Louise!"
"[We] received the link and looked at our photos this morning; also received the lovely gift box containing the memory stick - what a lovely momento! What can I say except we absolutely LOVE the photos! You captured the day perfectly and how we want to remember it: relaxed, fun, wine and music! You have given us exactly what we wanted and were so discreet around people, which is how you've managed to get some lovely images ... Thank you again; we know who to come to if we need a photographer again!".
"I contacted Louise after being impressed with the photography work she had done for my brother and sister in law's band. Louise was extremely responsive and great to communicate with in the lead up to the shoot. Louise was really helpful, suggesting a few options for locations for the type of pictures I needed. I appreciated her flexibility especially when I added in a third location for the shoot with very little notice. On the day she arrived promptly and made me feel at ease behind the camera with her warm and friendly persona. Louise worked to really hard to a tight turn around time so I could have images ready for my website. I'm really pleased with her work and i'll definitely be recommending her to friends and family."
"Louise was fabulous at our wedding, very organised and great at communicating in advance of the event, she ensured that she was familiar with the venue and our requirements but still remained incredibly flexible on the day. I was blown away by the photos, Louise is so unobtrusive that she managed to take some incredible and very natural shots that truly embodied the experiences and brought them back to life in our memories. Louise was incredibly professional, working to all the unique requirements we asked her to, in a friendly way, she accommodated our requirements including linking in prior to the event, research and support. I was intimidated by the cost of a wedding photographer but Louise has proved that it was worth every penny, her photos truly bring our whole experience to life and have left us with a tangible record of truly precious memories and the people who shared them with us. Thank you Louise."
"Louise took our wedding photographs at late notice as our photographer cancelled 2 weeks before the day. She was brilliant and the photo's were exceptional, at the reception after the formal pictures we hardly knew she was there but she managed to get pictures of everyone. Looking through the pictures is like living through the day all over again I would recommend Louise for ANY occasion she is efficient, professional but most of all you feel you have a good friend with you in the background. We will have a hard job picking from these beautiful pictures we would also like to thank our original photographer for cancelling he did us a huge favour."
"We picked Louise to be our wedding photographer and she was amazing! Really flexible in terms of timings, I was so fed up of reading 'we have one package for the whole day' when we only wanted a few hours. We wanted some really original urban style wedding pictures and Louise just knew what we wanted and delivered amazing results, no cheesy pics for us! I've no hesitation in recommending Louise's work, thank you."
"My husband and I would highly recommend Louise. Louise did the photography for our wedding day and we were delighted with the results. We had a lovely mixture of single and groups shots, in a mixture of settings and styles. Louise is friendly and makes everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Louise also worked quietly in the background taking fabulous photos of the ceremony and meal capturing moments of chatter and laughter which are some of my favourite pictures. Thank you Louise."
"Louise recently did a shoot for my band - so pleased with results and she got the shots to us in super quick time! Highly recommended and a real professional!
"Louise did an amazing job photographing Isla and Alfie. She made the kids feel at ease, is professional and friendly and we are super happy with the images!"
"Louise did such an amazing job restoring two very special photographs for me. One being an old passport size photograph restored and enlarged to 6x4" size. They turned out even better than I imagined they would. Louise, you are extremely talented and I would recommend you to everyone."
"Louise thank you so much for the beautiful wedding photos. You captured our wedding day perfectly, the pictures are of a high standard and quality. You were very professional and helpful and made everyone feel relaxed. The wedding photo book is lovely with a good mixture of formal and informal pictures. I will recommend you to anyone who wants a photographer in the future. Thank you for making our day so special."

"Louise ... couldn't have been more obliging and helpful. We were having a fund raising charity dinner and needed someone to be low profile and get photographs as guests arrived. All this was achieved. It was a real pleasure to deal with Louise"
"Thank you very much, I am over the moon with the photos! You have done a brilliant job; they tell a lovely story of the day ...It's made the day even more special having the photos to look back on"
"Thank you so much for the pictures of Neeve's Holy Communion. It took the stress out of my day knowing that I didn't have to worry about capturing pictures and memories. The photos are amazing; family and friends are desperate for copies! The shots of my daughters are beautiful and will be treasured memories. Look forward to having you at other events and will recommend you to friends and family."
"We had an amazing time on our UK tour with you Lou, thanks so much for coming along and being our tour photographer. The images really look amazing. Look forward to many more."

"Louise was organised to take photos at my 50th Party by a close friend of mine as a surprise gift. On meeting Louise we were immediately put at ease and she took some fabulous, natural photographs without me or the guests really knowing she was there. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who wants a photographer who isn't pushy and allows you to relax."
