TaleChasers Photography


One of our favourite images from the very talented wedding photographer, TaleChasers Photography, is this gorgeous shot…


“I love that couples feel comfortable enough with me to be themselves and relaxed enough to display genuine affection for each other, which makes even the staged shots real. This glamorous autumn wedding was such a highlight for me because despite the weather, the couple and their party enjoyed the day so much. We had lots of laughs and made the most of the gorgeous venues and locations they had chosen. It was hard to choose just one, but I love everything about this shot, even the rain drops on his shoulder as he shields her from the rain.” – Simone Gardiner, TaleChasers Photography
