Angela Ward Brown Photography

“Angela Ward Brown Photography is based in Winchester, and loves taking pictures of people during the important bits of their lives. She lives in Hampshire but travels all over for lovely couples and fun weddings; whether is an emotional ‘I Do’ among close family, shouting about your love to the world with an epic party, or just you two, under a tree.

Angela’s style is romantic and relaxed, she is very much there to tell the story of your day as it happens with a bit of direction & support for camera-shy people.  Some of her favourite feedback is when guests mention they barely noticed she was there.  She doesn’t tell them that is because she is a ninja.

Your wedding photographs matter, and it matters whom you choose to take them. “
