“A relaxed and authentic feel for what family life is like”

We are absolutely thrilled with our family photos.  They were exactly what we wanted – a more relaxed and authentic feel for what family life is like (without the tantrums).  Tori has such a warm and approachable personality that works perfectly being a photographer.  She slips right in like one of the family so we all felt very at ease.  We will definitely be getting more family shots now that we have a new family member.

“The most heartwarming photos”

Tori came to Trent Park to do a family shoot for us.  Amidst the muddy terrain she managed to capture two toddlers, a baby, a 9 year old and several chatty adults, into the most heartwarming photos.  The photos Tori took now hang with pride of place on our lounge walls.

“You relaxed us straight away”

Wow, we are absolutely delighted with the wonderful photos that you took for us, especially considering how demanding our two year old was that day! You relaxed us straight away and the end result are some beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. Thank you and we will certainly be using you again in the future.

“We love the photos so much”

We would highly recommend Tori to anyone wanting to capture some happy family memories.  She immediately put all of us at ease including our then 15 month old daughter.  Tori managed to capture some beautiful, natural photos which we can cherish for years to come.  We love the photos so much that we are now planning on carrying out another shoot with the newest addition to our family!

The Stone family - St Albans family photographer

“I’m amazed at the expressions and emotions she has captured”

We have been lucky enough to have Tori photograph us for 3 years. She did our bump shoot during pregnancy through to age 2 family portraits. She takes shots I would never think of and they are fantastic!  With a young son, I’m always taking photos with my phone but Tori manages to capture these every-day moments that become treasured photos. I’m grateful to have these to look back on. Thank you Tori!

The Hingley faimly - Milton Keynes family photographer

“I have never had such amazing photos – really!”

OH MY GOD!! They are fabulous thank you so much! I have never had such amazing photos – really! We are absolutely delighted. Thank you Tori! Will be booking you in for the wedding!!

You are a talented photographer who has the ability to know exactly what we wanted and made us feel completely at ease throughout the whole process from briefing to delivery.  You captured the moment and mood to perfection and delivered first class results.  I have no hesitation in recommending you and will use you time and time again as a reliable, efficient and exceptionally creative photographer.

“We can’t wait for the next photo session!”

We absolutely love the photos Tori took for us at home. It really captured family life with a 5 month old baby. Tori is warm and put us all at ease. We can’t wait for the next photo session!

Remy - Bedfordshire family photography

“We’d both recommend Tori to anyone for their wedding!”

When Joe and I were looking for a photographer I found Tori online and was immediately amazed by her eye for natural, beautiful photos. It wasn’t until we happened to meet Tori at a wedding fair that we knew she had to be our photographer for our wedding. Tori balances being professional with being relatable to our needs and incredibly enthusiastic about our day. We used Tori for both our civil and religious ceremonies and second to the compliments about my wedding dress were compliments about Tori from all my family! To say that we barely noticed Tori on the day is the biggest compliment I could offer. Tori managed to capture all the wonderful moments we hoped for; natural, artistic and effortless without us ever feeling she was hovering around or that we were being told to pose here and there. Our photos reflect us enjoying what was the best time of our lives and Tori really understood how to achieve that.

For the religious ceremony, we were impressed with how her understanding of our traditions were so quickly adopted given she hadn’t done a Sikh wedding before. She was respectful of the traditions and some of my favourite photos from both days are from the religious ceremony.

Joe and I felt so comfortable around Tori which is what you want from a photographer and the photographs surely didn’t disappoint. We’d both recommend Tori to anyone for their wedding!

Niki & Jo - Syon Park - September 2015

“We are stunned at how much of the day she managed to capture so beautifully”

Tori was a calm and reassuring presence from the moment I met her at a wedding fair. I instantly found her very easy to be around and felt that she would compliment the day we were planning perfectly. Tori’s presence on the day was very subtle yet when we looked back over the photos we are stunned at how much of the day she managed to capture so beautifully. The one thing that stuck out the most was how quickly and well she put together our album and how she was able to take our comments on board and make changes to a couple of the pages. We have recommended Tori to friends planning weddings and other such events and will continue to do so! Thank you Tori.

Charlotte & Ben - Greenwich Yacht Club - April 2014

“Our high expectations were exceeded”

More than just an amazing photographer, Tori is a good friend of ours and we loved having her involved in our wedding.  Having seen lots of Tori’s previous work, we had no hesitation in hiring her.  Our high expectations were exceeded when we received our wonderful album.  The quality of the photos and the album itself were exceptional, and blew us away as we relived our special day through Tori’s magnificent shots.  We really couldn’t have asked for any more.  Thank you Tori! x

David & Philly - Burwash Manor, Cambridge - August 2014

“we could just relax & enjoy the day”

Simon & I just wanted to say thank you for taking such amazing photos of our special day. The album is just perfect & I know we will look at it many times over the years to come. You made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera so we could just relax & enjoy the day. You were so discreet in the church that Simon’s Dad (the vicar) commented on how nice it was to have such a respectful photographer! We would recommend you to anyone.

Sarah & Simon - Magdalene College, Cambridge - September 2010

“We absolutely…loved working with you”

Tori… Thank you so much for our beautiful photos. We absolutely love them and loved working with you. Best of luck for the future & hope to see you soon….

Sarah & Jamie - Wasing Park - December 2010

“you made me feel so comfortable”

Tori, you did a great job photographing our very special day!

Initially I was very wary of being photographed but you made me feel so comfortable and were very discreet. You managed to capture all the fun we had and took great care to ensure you got all the details of the day. You were a pleasure to get to know and I cannot recommend you highly enough.

Bryony & Chris - Loseley Park - December 2013

“unique ability to make you feel totally at ease”

Tori has the unique ability to make you feel totally at ease with her and in front of her camera. She manages to capture all the magic moment that you miss and the results are completely captivating.

I can’t recommend Tori enough and will be grateful for the moments she captured for us forever.

Lorraine & Peter, Tewinbury Farm, Hertfordshire - December 2012

“incredibly professional to deal with”

Tori was our wedding photographer for our wedding in May 2011 & I literally cannot recommend her highly enough. From the very first meeting, she did a fantastic job at answering our questions & helping us to decide what we wanted while making us feel relaxed about the day.

Tori was on time for every meeting we had with her & incredibly professional to deal with. She even managed to make our nerves disappear for our pre-shoot (which is something I never thought would happen!). We were a little dubious at the idea of a pre-shoot initially but it was so worthwhile as by the day of the wedding, we felt far more at ease in front of the camera & our wedding photos showed this. We also used one of our favourite shots from the pre-shoot as a signing frame at the reception so we have a wonderful memento of the day with messages from all of our guests.

On the day of the wedding, Tori managed to capture every single shot we wanted plus others that we hadn’t even thought of beforehand & now love! Tori was fantastic in organising our guests to be where they needed to be for the group shots & took amazing photos before people got tired of being photographed. The group shots are normally seen as a bit of a chore by the guests at weddings as they generally involve a lot of standing around & waiting but ours even commented to us that these were the most competently run group shots they’d ever seen at a wedding.

The fly on the wall shots that Tori took throughout the day are some of my favourites, she somehow managed to capture the best side of everyone there & get great photos of our friends & family enjoying themselves.

Tori’s advice when choosing which Queensberry album to go for was invaluable, she seemed to know our tastes perfectly & when the album arrived we were both blown away by how beautiful it was & have received so many compliments on it from everyone we’ve shown it to (which is everyone unlucky enough to walk through our front door!).

I would not hesitate to use Tori again as a photographer & recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer.

Fiona & Nigel - Sandridgebury Farm, Hertfordshire - May 2011

“Tori has a great manner with her subjects young and old”

We asked Tori to shoot some portrait photos for a family birthday, with family from one to ninety years old. She let us spend time together to capture some informal moments, then managed to gather us for some more formal ones. We’re thrilled with the results.
Tori has a great manner with her subjects young and old, which gets the best out of them. Her customer service was perfect, with the collection quickly edited, shared in digital and printed formats, and attractively packaged. Thanks so much for your help.
Clack family - Bedfordshire family photography

“She captured our cheeky, smiley boy brilliantly”

We asked Tori to take some photos of us with our 8 month old and our families following our son’s dedication. Tori did a fantastic job! She captured our cheeky, smiley boy brilliantly and took beautiful pictures of the whole group as well as our various family members in smaller groups. Various family members, myself included, don’t particularly enjoy having our photo taken, but you wouldn’t know it – we look relaxed and natural. Thank you Tori for beautifully capturing what was a very special day for us.
Clyne family - St Albans family photography

“She has a wonderful empathy with the subjects, putting everyone at ease”

Tori has done two wonderful photography shoots for our family. The first was me and husband and our two children when they were young. We did some shots in our garden and in our home and then went out and about to capture the family in more natural and playful poses. Tori even managed to humour my cross-patch 3 year old daughter into smiling although the one with the ‘big-bottom’ lip pose is one of our favourites as it captured her personality at that time! We loved the quality of the shots and the happiness in the photos. She framed them beautifully for us too and they have pride of place. The second shoot was a more complicated and busy shoot for my mum-in-law’s 70th birthday party in Essex. Tori was calm, organised and clear in her instruction always with a smile too trying manage 16 of us in various group shots and then many other shots in a more reportage style. What you get with Tori is a natural and creative representation of the event or that moment in time – she has a wonderful empathy with the subjects, putting everyone at ease …especially tricky children or shy adults and gets the best out of them –  you will get pictures you’ll cherish forever. Thank-you Tori
Parkins-Knight family - St Albans family photography

“Photos of our family that perfectly capture our personality”

We are a lively family with 4 boisterous boys so catching us all naturally on camera is no easy task. Thank goodness for Tori, who spent a lovely few hours at our house doing a Lifestyle shoot. Tori’s charming, easy manner put us all at ease, and her professionalism and skill as a photographer produced just the results we wanted: beautiful natural photos of our family that perfectly capture our personality and lifestyle. I highly recommend Tori for her professionalism, personal service and great results.

“Lovely natural photographs”

Thank you so much for our photos which are gorgeous, we are delighted with the results. You made us feel at ease in front of the camera and had lots of patience with our daughters which resulted in some lovely natural photographs. We have several of your photos framed on our walls and have received lots of compliments. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and using you again for future photo shoots.

Hutchinson family - Hertfordshire family photography

“Tori really captured the intimacy between us all”

We used Tori for a family shoot. She initially came to the house and put the children (and my husband) at ease immediately. Her style is relaxed reportage so we got on with a few activities and she snapped away. Tori really captured the intimacy between us all. We later met at a bluebell site and once again Tori gave us minimal direction but she got the most beautiful images of the children and some fantastic natural family shots.

I was delighted with the results when they came through. We’ve framed many of the shots and people always remark on them. I’d have no hesitation recommending Tori for any of your photography needs!
Gavin family - St Albans family photography

“Tori made the session fun”

We booked a maternity shoot with Tori as a way to document this milestone before our little one arrived. I don’t enjoy being in front of the camera and always feel super awkward but Tori made the session fun and I felt relaxed and not at all goofy in front of the camera. The result, beautiful shots of my partner and I that now take pride of place on our wall at home.

“Not only a fantastic photographer but also a lovely person who has infectious enthusiasm!”

I met Tori at a networking event a few years ago and she was so passionate about what she did that when I got engaged a couple of years later she was the first and only photographer I contacted. From the start, she was really enthusiastic and so helpful at answering questions. She was also flexible and really good at adapting her package to fit within our budget. It was a lovely coincidence that Tori got married at our venue so knew the layout well. And she was really helpful at recommending other wedding suppliers including a great tailor!
Tori really took on board what kind of photos we wanted and was also great at giving suggestions as to what would work. On the day itself, she was absolutely fantastic, lots of our guests commented how lovely and enthusiastic she was and her relaxed manner really put everyone at ease. The photos are amazing, we have no idea how she managed to be in so many places at once. We cannot recommend Tori highly enough, she is not only a fantastic photographer but also a lovely person who has infectious enthusiasm!
Chris & Charlotte - Quendon Parklands, Essex - April 2014

“She managed to capture some very special moments she was unobtrusive and discreet”

The only good thing to have come from my trip to the National Wedding Show in February 2015 was meeting Tori! I loved the natural, happy shots that were on display as this is exactly what we were after for our own wedding. Tori’s  attention to detail and organised approach made it all very easy and whilst she managed to capture some very special moments she was unobtrusive and discreet. No one felt uncomfortable and our pictures reflect that as there are a lot of people smiling and laughing! After the day itself Tori didn’t let her attention to detail slip in any way just because the wedding was over – the write up on the blog felt very personal and was lovely to read when all the excitement was over, and the effort that was put into getting our beautiful album just right was amazing. The whole experience of working with Tori has been great, from start to finish, and I’d very happily recommend her. Thank you Tori! xx

Saira & Jerry - Pembroke Lodge - November 2015

“you are so much more than a photographer!”

Tori, what can I say…you are so much more than a photographer! You helped button me into that dress, write the thank you note to my mother in law (our little secret!), please the Dean of Westminster Abbey & make me & my guests feel so utterly relaxed that you captured some of the most incredible moments of our wedding day! Thank you doesn’t begin to cover it…how you manage to combine professionalism with such a friendly, relaxed attitude I will never know but you made the day so easy and provided us with beautiful memories that will last us a lifetime. So many of our guests commented on how great you were! Thank you for everything!

Kirsten & Adam - Westminster Abbey & RAC - September 2012

“we love, love, love the final album”

Thanks so much Tori for taking the most perfect photos of our wedding day. You captured the sentiment and feeling of our day so well and we are over the moon. And we love, love, love the final album!

Thanks so much 🙂

Kim & Simon - Hertfordshire marquee wedding - September 2012

“You are great fun to work with”

We are so glad that we found you when looking for a photographer! You are great fun to work with, not only embracing our theme with enthusiasm, but managing to put us both at ease in front of the camera – no easy task! We can’t imagine any other photographer having fitted into the day so well, and have a beautiful set of pictures to look back on in years to come – thank you!

Kat & Andy - Surrey marquee wedding - September 2013

“we are over the moon…”

Tori’s photographs were wonderful of our day. We felt she captured the essence of the day and we are over the moon with her results. From the moment i met her it felt right. She is relaxed and almost invisible on the day and all our guests commented how lovely she was. If i ever got married again I would use her again ;).

Jane & David - Islington Town Hall - May 2011

“many people mentioned how friendly & professional you were”

Tori, thank you SO much! We love our wedding photos!

It was great to have your calming presence on our wedding day – so many people mentioned how friendly & professional you were.

Thank you for being so fantastic! And the pictures are amazing, we will treasure our album for the rest of our lives…

Dear Tori,

Thank you for being a wonderful photographer & friend and helping to make our wedding day so special!

Lots of love, Lisa & Peter xxx

Lisa & Peter - Brockett Hall Golf Club - September 2012

“She is more like a friend along for the outing than someone there to photograph it”

We love the photos that Tori took of our family in Bushy Park! It was a freezing day and she managed to put both us and our 2-year old at ease very quickly, getting some fantastic shots in the limited time we had outside.  Tori is very relaxed and friendly, and gets the job done without you even realising she is doing it, she is more like a friend along for the outing than someone there to photograph it. She was very flexible when it came to arranging a time to meet, working around weather and unpredictable nap times, and she is always very responsive.  The frames we ordered from the shoot were wonderful Christmas presents for grandparents, and everything arrived quickly, and beautifully packaged. Tori was a wonderful wedding photographer, but I think she may be an even better family photographer! Thank you!
Flatt family - London family photography

“We wouldn’t even consider looking for anyone else to take family photos

If you are looking for a family photographer then you need not look any further! The first time we met Tori, was when we were looking for a wedding photographer. We instantly clicked and needless to say she got the job. She then captured our special day so perfectly that within 18 months we met up again for her to take photos of our baby daughter. The many photos she has taken for us have pride of place around our home and we wouldn’t even consider looking for anyone else to take family photos. Her photography skills are the best in the business and I cannot recommend enough that you get in touch with her. Thank you Tori x
MacEachern family - Hemel family photography

“She lets everyone be themselves in front of the camera”

Tori’s photos leap off the page, because she’s a wizard with a lens and because she lets everyone be themselves in front of the camera. Tori knows how to handle grown ups and toddlers, to get the shot she wants without being bossy or tiresome, and she doesn’t take hours to do it. Our last shoot was in the bluebells near Wheathampsted and the photos are magical.
If you want to treasure your photos, the albums are a must; Tori’s album of our wedding is the first thing I would save from a fire. I’m glad she talked me into getting it.
Briggs family - Hertfordshire family photography

“Tori has a lovely way with children”

I used Tori for a family shoot. We went to the woods, and now have gorgeous natural pics that we treasure. Tori has a lovely way with children in that she is just there taking pictures without them knowing. My youngest daughter is very shy and hates having her picture taken but thanks to Tori, we have gorgeous pictures of both girls. She even helped the girls look for ‘stickman’. Thanks Tori, can’t thank you enough!

Hossack family - Hertfordshire family photography

“You really caught her cheeky little smile and personality”

Tori, I just wanted to say thank you so so much for the wonderful photographs you took of us recently. It was our first photo shoot as a family and you really helped put us at ease. The photos are amazing and really capture this period of our Abbie’s life. You really caught her cheeky little smile and personality. Thank you so much again, and we’re looking forward to booking a session in next year to do it all again! Love Pete, Cath and Abbie

“…yet another set of amazing photos…”

Hi Tori,

Just a quick note to thank you so much for taking yet another set of amazing photos of the boys.

We can’t believe how many great pictures you took of two energetic preschoolers! You have really captured them and their personalities. We will treasure these photos forever.

The picture book is also stunning quality.

“Tori was great at getting the best out of all of us”

I booked a family photo shoot when my daughter was 5months old. It was a pretty cold autumn day and we had booked our shoot outside so that we could use the lovely autumn colours as a backdrop. Tori was great at getting the best out of all of us and really read the situation well with a little one taking centre stage. She was kind, patient and ultimately took some great photos of all of us. We absolutely love them!

Thurston family - Hertfordshire family photography

“the best moment driven photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with”

It’s obvious to anyone that meets Tori, that she is passionate about what she does and also that she is a gifted photographer. However her stand out quality for me, is her ability to make every person she photographs feel incredibly special and important – setting you at ease, and capturing that “perfect shot”. Tori has photographed many things for me, but it was on our recent family shoot that I was even more impressed by these qualities. Tori coordinates an entire family (and dog!) seamlessly, and she has a special talent for engaging children in what she’s doing – even letting them photograph with her camera! Tori has an amazing ability to capture those candid moments, which the kids just love! Tori will capture those special looks and silly things you do (even the kids stropping), which makes the photos she produces so real and authentic of that point in time – she truly is the best moment driven photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Highly recommended!

Griffith family - Hertfordshire family photography - June 2015

“The photos are unbelievable…”


The photos are unbelievable, just stunning. We are so delighted with them, thank you sooooo much!

I can’t stop looking at them, had them up on theTV to look at on the big screen too.

Starting to share with family and they all agree, just wonderful!

Charlotte & Liam - Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury - July 2015

“We are so pleased with the album, it’s better than we ever imagined…”

Dear Tori,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for our beautiful albums. We are so pleased with the album, it’s better than we ever imagined, and our parents were completely overwhelmed by theirs. So many thanks!

We can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done.

Louise & Ian - Crazy Bear, Stadhampton - August 2012

“we have received sooooo many compliments”

Thank you  so much, you really have made our day and memories so very special.

You will be pleased to know we have received sooooo many compliments on your behalf of your work and have been recommending you to all!

Emma & Ben - Andaz Hotel, London - November 2013

“Our photos tell a wonderful story of the day…”

Tori, words can’t thank you enough for being part of our special day. You really do have an amazing gift of capturing people’s emotions and bringing them to life.

Our photos tell a wonderful story of the day which we will treasure forever – I don’t know how you managed to capture so much throughout the day in such great detail. Love Dee & Jo

Dee & Jo - Devonshire Arms Hotel - December 2010

“we have been delighted at every stage of the process”

My wife and i hired Tori as our wedding photographer and we have been delighted at every stage of the process. From the instant we met all three of us felt very relaxed and we knew Tori was the right person for the job.

Her calmness in the frenzy of our wedding day was infectious and she was always offering general advice on the day, not only realting to photography!

The photos are better than we could have dreamed of with the usual group shots and some ad-hoc shots which really capture the day and we are so pleased. A number of our friends have already expressed their delight at the photos as well.

We would have no doubts in hiring Tori again.

Martin & Sue - Horwood House - October 2011

“we knew straight away that she was the photographer for us”

My husband and I met Tori at The National Wedding Show in 2010 and we knew straight away that she was the photographer for us. Her sample portfolios were exactly the style of how we wanted our photos to look and the Queensbury albums included in the package were simply stunning. Tori also wasn’t time restricted which we found with some other photographer’s packages and we didn’t want to have to miss out on any shots throughout the day. We met up a couple of times before our big day to discuss what shots we wanted and to view some more of her sample wedding albums to give us an idea of what ours could look like and they were great! Each time Tori was punctual and well presented and was always loaded with a smile. One thing we really liked was that Tori offered a pre-wedding shoot to get you comfortable in front of the camera together before the wedding but it also gave us the opportunity to get us comfortable working with Tori and seeing what worked well. It was such a good day and we got some lovely photos of us together which we were able to view online after only a few days.

We were lucky enough on our big day to have a second photographer join Tori which worked extremely well and gave us lots of photos from different angles. They snapped away throughout the day to get a variety of candid shots of our family and friends and the usual group shots and the day flew by. After the wedding and honeymoon we arranged to meet up to view all of our 300+ photo’s and to put together our album! It was lovely to see Tori again and we got to view all of our photos up on a big screen and relive the wedding and as hard as it was to choose, we selected the photos we wanted to include in our album. We were also able to select the type of cover for the album and colour mounts for the photos and then we handed over to Tori again to design the album. Tori did an amazing job of the design and we were able to view the drafts online and make any changes we wanted and when the completed album arrived (earlier than promised) it blew us away! The quality of the album and photos was outstanding and our family and friends have all commented on how stunning it looks. We would thoroughly recommend Tori and we will definitely be keeping in touch with her for future special occasions.
