Most of my week is spent doing property photography for estate agents.
This was a lovely property I did the other week. I love it when I walk in to a house and it is neat, tidy, and beautifully decorated. This one did not disappoint, it was like a show home! The vendors had obviously done a lot of work to it over the years, and the price it is on the market for reflects that. It has gorgeous views looking over open fields. As well as overall shots of each room I also get nice feature details, and there were plenty at this one.
This particular property just required a floor plan and photography, although these days I also offer the option of a 360 tour, which some agents like.
These days I have to work very safely, so I always wear PPE – a mask and gloves. I touch as little as possible when I am in the property, and I hope vendors are put at ease with the safety measures I take. The way I work has had to change due to Covid, and I get through so much hand gel each day I should buy shares in it! But it is better to be safe than sorry. I have to say, I find in more difficult to communicate with people when wearing a mask, and gone are the days when I gladly accept a cuppa if offered. But I am still my usual friendly chatty self, even if I am a bit more muffled than usual!
This particular property was a real pleasure to photograph – I am sure it will look great online and I have no doubt it will sell quickly.

Nikki was fantastic! She worked with us from the very first informal meeting to discuss our budget and what we wanted to achieve. She gave us guidance and ideas about the best photographic places in our wedding venue and what options we had. Nikki was not only very professional but friendly too and had the perfect tone for gathering everyone together for the photographs so there was no waiting around. I have since recommended Nikki to a few brides to be with no hesitation.

Nikki was brilliant on our wedding day: Professional, but personal at the same time. She made everyone feel so comfortable and, consequently, captured some really beautiful moments. As a "stressed out" bride, I really cannot compliment Nikki enough... in both the run up to our wedding, and afterwards, her communication was excellent - so proactive. She was incredibly organised and efficient. It really made this part of organising the wedding effortless. We would highly recommend her.

I am so glad Nikki did our wedding photography, she went way beyond our expectations of our photograph's! We had a wonderful happy day with our family and friends, and she captured the atmosphere perfectly. She more than delivered the outline I had given her, and we have beautiful artistic memento's of our very special day. I love how she seized the moments of different parts of our day, both the formal and informal. We will treasure these photographs, and I could not recommend her highly enough! The trouble will be now just deciding what to leave out of the album!

The wonderful Nikki Bowling captured our day from bridal prep to the first dance (and beyond). We got the set pieces we requested and a plethora of candid, natural shots which capture our day perfectly. Nikki was very familiar with our venue and knew all the good nooks and crannies to get really wonderful pictures. A number of our guests commented on how great she was on the day. Getting her job done without imposing on the day and special time with family and friends. I would recommend her to anyone.
