A warm welcome to brides and grooms Googling “wedding photographer Derby”… You have found Laura!. I hope you will enjoy some examples of my wedding photography work. My name is Laura Folkes, & I founded  Af1 Photography in Derby 5 years ago after working for a photographic company who were more interested in the sales through the till, rather than caring about the clients wishes & requirements.

After many friends & family asked me to to capture their wedding day for them I realised that my unique delivery & creative outlook, would benefit many other couples like yourselves who are looking for a personal, low impact observer to their day of magic!

I have developed a personal style, that covers the traditional static posed shots, to a more relaxed approach of natural, unobtrusive lifestyle images. By allowing myself & assistant photographer, Richard, to become part of your day, we get the best results simply by watching, listening & observing your guests, & getting to know you guys are hoping to achieve, through prior life style sessions, booked previously to your big day.

We find through experience that this takes the edge off of you by feeling awkward & creates a relaxed atmosphere, getting to know what you like & dislike, making the whole day a magical experience !!

You’ve done the hard part Googling “wedding photographer derby”! Now let Laura, the Derby wedding photographer, take care of the rest and create memories you will treasure for a lifetime.

The Wedding Photographer for Derby & Surrounding Area

Wedding Photographer Derby has. Image of bride sitting in a chair with flowers. The best wedding photographer derby hasI am based in Allestree, Derby in the East Midlands, but have had the pleasure of travelling all over the country, as well as international locations.

Making your wedding day the most special occasion of your lives by capturing the atmosphere & guests as it happens.

My passion for keeping every little detail the way you planned it, results in our #bespoke created images, full of those once in a lifetime #memories, from the very start of the day to the very end of the evening*. Filling your wedding album with wonderful images, in the form of your very own #STORY TELLER, rather than just a wedding photographer.

I capture each Bride & Groom’s day with my unique style. Keeping that relaxed, non obtrusive throughout the day.  Allowing natural lifestyle images, ensuring the best results in your photo’s.  Though sometimes if it is necessary to take charge of the photo call, should “Uncle George” unfortunately gets to the champagne first, then a firm hand can be delivered!!!

Along with my magic box of tricks & wedding planner experience I am prepared for the majority of hiccups ….

We have listed some of our services to give you an idea of the most #popular styles at affordable prices.  Please feel free to ask any questions,

Remember there is always our alternative package of “DESIGN YOUR OWN DAY”, making sure you get the most important things on the day the way YOU want them & not how the photographer sees his album finished in his/her eyes…
