Welcome to Louise May Photography

I’m Louise, a Documentary Wedding Photographer based on the Devon and 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'm Louise

and I photograph Weddings! Real, intimate, bursting with love celebrations.

I live tucked away...

In Deepest Darkest Devon on the edge of Exmoor, but I’m not limited by miles…

I photograph wedding all over the UK as well as Destination Weddings & Intimate Elopements

I love an adventure

and I’m always up for a road trip, so I’ll happily travel anywhere to capture your day

I'm obsessed with Photography...

…and a hopeless romantic!

I love raging storms, crashing seas and roaring fires on cold nights and can often be found creating my seascapes with an old Bronica film camera

Horse Power

Wheels and hooves… These are two of my very favourite things, along with Avocados of course!

Storytelling Photography



I’m obsessed with real emotion and with making people smile. I love my kids and my horses, raging storms and gentle kindness. I believe that there is beauty in everyone and everything. I believe that love is home and home is love.

I LOVE photography! Live and breathe it in fact! Although I do have to admit to being a bit of a nerd for the technology, for me the end result is not about my camera or the settings, it’s about you and the emotions surrounding your day, the beautiful moments that take your breath away. When I discovered photography I found love and I found soul. I found light and laughter and a way to belong. I found home.

My passion is for you and your stories. Your beauty and your bursting hearts. An intimate glance, the slight brush of a hand, naked emotion, vulnerability. Raw, genuine and real. This is what I love….

Years from now, when you look back through your wedding album, I want all of those incredible feelings to come flooding back to you…  I want you to feel the goosebumps as you relive your most special memories again through your photographs…
