 "I booked Defining Beauty for my engagement and wedding photos. We weren't booking your traditional wedding and wanted a nice relaxed atmosphere for us and our guests. Defining Beauty couldn't have delivered a better service or matched the tone in a better way.
 Laura expertly handled the engagement shots which included one scowling horse, one dog more interested in chasing chickens and one husband to be who hates having his photos taken! Despite the obvious problems this created Laura managed to do such a great job my biggest worry was picking just one photo to display on the big day. (So much so in fact I picked 2!) As the day arrived Laura joined the bridal party like another guest and was able to capture natural and beautiful photos without me noticing. She kept to our relaxed theme but delivered the perfect memory of our special day. I cannot recommend Defining Beauty enough as I feel sure the service would really deliver what your looking for.
