Welcome to Louise May Photography


I’m Louise, a Documentary Wedding Photographer in Devon, living in Tiverton, close to the Somerset Border in the South West of England. I photograph Destination Weddings and Intimate Elopements across the UK including Devon, Somerset, Cornwall and Dorset. I would love to tell your wedding story through my unique creative style of storytelling photography.

I would love to capture your connection and tell your wedding story through my unique, creative style of storytelling photography

I photograph love and emotion which encapsulates all weddings regardless of religion, race or sexuality.

If you’re in love and planning a Wedding or an Intimate Elopement in the beautiful South West,
I would love to connect with you.


I am a woman rarely lost for words, but photos by Louise left me speechless and tearful with delight and gratitude - I cannot recommend this lady highly enough (she’s not 5* she’s 10* - stellar!).

There might be lots of people who can photograph your special day, but few gifted enough to capture it. Louise does exactly that - the very essence and feeling of those most treasured moments.

I really do not like being in front of a camera, so my wedding day was a challenge Louise rose to, above and beyond it. Louise is an extraordinary person, every contact with her is an absolute pleasure. She listens and responds, she made it easy and comfortable. She has given me the most beautiful images of the day, even better than my best hopes! Seeing them was truly reliving it. In the moment it’s all a blur, but Louise has a true gift - she caught the spirit perfectly. Wonderful candid shots, fabulous portraits - everything you could want and then some! These are not images I shall look at once and put in a drawer, they are real treasures and it lifts my spirit to look at them. I will look at these often because it takes me back to these precious moments.

I so wish I had the money to pay her twice the fee because it would be worth every penny. Book her - you will not be disappointed, she will exceed expectations!

Thank you for our gallery and for the slideshow!

We have absolutely loved looking through our wedding photos and savoured it over 2 weeks, just looking through a few each evening. You have done a brilliant job!

We loved the memories that looking though them brought back and they brought us many smiles and tears. It has taken some time to get over how wonderful and special the day was, and we are loving being married.

Thank you again for being there and helping the day flow so smoothly, it was the best day of our lives, and having you there was great.

The Photographs are absolutely beautiful!

Louise has been excellent throughout our wedding journey. She has been kind and understanding with us especially when the run up to our wedding got very stressful at times!

We would thoroughly recommend Louise to anyone. She has been a delight to work with and our pre wedding photos and photos from the big day are amazing. We absolutely love them. Louise really made us feel at ease, thank you!

I asked Louise if she would photograph myself and my bridesmaids getting ready for our wedding in July. She was, at all times, the consummate professional and made us all feel really comfortable.

Her photos are among some our favourite from the day as even though she was a guest, she took photos all through the day and into the evening. She managed to capture the joy of the day perfectly and some great shots of the evening's festivities!

We would recommend the lovely Louise to anyone! x

Louise made our day so very special. Great memories that will last forever.
She really knows how to get the best shots from the day. Everything we could have wished for in a wedding photographer. Even managed to get the kids to smile! Very relaxed approach and nothing is too much trouble.

We honestly couldn't recommend Louise enough. Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job!

Absolutely loved out photoshoot with Louise, our wedding day was very wet so we never got the photo's we really wanted but she gave us the opportunity to remake our photos, and in a style we really wanted.

The afternoon was so relaxed and unstaged, Louise made us feel so at ease, nothing was a problem even the sheep trying to eat her equipment and a 2 year old who didn't like to stand still.

We are so grateful to her and now we have some beautiful pictures we are proud to show others and have on our wall!

Thank you x
