- professional reliable and friendly photograher
We saw lisa advertised and contacted her by phone and arranged to meet her, even on the phone she made us feel at ease and when we met her we both knew we should hire her. We were both relaxed and when the day arrived she was outstanding we didnt have to worry about anything and even our guests felt at ease with her. The day was fabulous and she took all the usual family poses etc, and she stayed all day and took pictures of people relaxing and talking and enjoying themselves. The photographs were absolutely amazing and we were really pleased with them. Lisa provides a service which is professional and outstanding. I would defiantly use her again for another special occassion.
- LISA COWEN DELIVERS
Lisa covered our wedding in Sandbach last august and did fantastic job!she had a full consultation with my wife and I months beforehand and we were immediately impressed with her proffessionalism.on the day she was at the house promptly for shots of bride and bridesmaids getting ready which were unposed and turned out great!! she took hundreds of fantastic picture at the venue and reception and,in fact, stayed past ten o’clock to ensure she got all he speeches,cake cutting etc. we were given full copyright over all pictures which she supplied on disc very soon after the wedding,and the album was fantastic.all in all Lisa was a great asset at our wedding and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone-even her prices came as a pleasant surprise!MANY THANKS lISA !!
Hi Lisa firstly a massive thank you for photographing our wedding back in August. I am overjoyed and thrilled to be sharing such wonderful photographs with my family and friends. I find that I am looking at the pictures constantly, and each… time I am finding something that I didn’t see before and am amazed at how you captured the magic and beauty of my wedding. When a bride can look at her photos and feel the same emotions as her wedding day, it is incredible. Words cannot ever express my gratitude towards you. I felt like I was the only bride you had ever photographed…because you dedicated every second of that day to Anthony, my family, and myself. You truly made me feel like the world revolved around me that day. THANK YOU. Lisa & Anthony Carr
- Excellent at doing what she does best
Lisa photographed our wedding in August 2010 at Leigh, I can honestly say that Lisa made our wedding day perfect leaving us with perfect memories for us and all our family to look back on, I cannot thank her enough for her time and effort that she put in to make us feel at ease with everything, i consider myself quite fussy and Lisa never ever made me feel like i was mithering her and everything i asked for she gave me, she took so much stress of us, she came to see us before the wedding and helped me out with so many decisions, everyone on the day and night was extremely impressed with her, and the album is absolutely beautiful we love it. Value for money is an under statement as i felt i also had a friend with us on our big day, Thank you so much Lisa your hard work patients and time will never be forgotten Lisa & Lee Brown
- Memories for the rest of our lives
Booking Lisa to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we have ever made. These moments can’t be recaptured and will be lost forever. This is where choice is crucial. If you want stuffy formal photos with half a dozen group pinheads and somebody telling you where to stand you can go anywhere. What Lisa gives you is a much more up to date service. We wanted specific formal photos throughout the ceremony and small group photos with our friends, family, work colleagues etc. We gave Lisa a list of all the names and places to photograph and boy did she deliver. After the formals we gave her a free reign. Our photos were unbelievable, incredible, just amazing and beautiful. She captured moments that Paul and I wouldn’t have seen and expressions that are priceless of us and our guests.She was so discreet you didn’t know she was there. All our guests love them as they are part of these moments both funny and serious. To us that is so important. All I will say to you readers of this review is – if you put your trust in this lovely warm lady, you will be over the moon. We look through our photos and they tell us a story of one of the best days of our lives. Having said that, it is up to you to tell Lisa exactly what you want. Do a list of people you want photographed relating to all aspects of the ceremony, name who you want in your groups. After all she is a fabulous, professional lady, unfortunately she isn’t a mindreader, although she’s pretty amazing. Thank you Lisa from the bottom of our hearts.Second to gettingh married we could’t have made a better choice when we picked you. xxx
- Fantastic photographer
Lisa Cowen is a fantastic photographer,Brilliant prices,Very likeable and very friendly, we had 200+ at our wedding and our guests still comment on how nice Lisa was, we was married in june 10.Lisa has an Amazing attitude towards her photography and this reflects in the photos, i can not grumble about one of the photos and i was sent 250+, I would definately recconmend Lisa.
- Couldnt be more pleased!
We adore all of the photos that Lisa took for us and they were exactly what we wanted a mix of formal on fly on the wall as well as some special request photos. I found so many moments when looking through them that I hadn’t even realised at the time had been photographed! All the photos are perfect and we cant stop looking through them. Pricing was spot on and Lisa is a wonderful lady, made us feel super relaxed before and during the wedding, never any pressure selling either (she doesn’t need to!) We also booked Lisa husband Dave as our DJ! great duo! I couldn’t recommend both more highly xx
- Outstanding photographer!
I would absolutely recommend Lisa. She is very professional, a lovely person and makes you feel very relaxed. Lisa went up and beyond her photographer duties, eg. Lisa made sure I had access to a toilet out of view of the guests before the ceremony. Not only that, the photos are amazing. Lisa has an excellent eye for detail. We also booked her DJ husband Dave, who is also excellent. The perfect duo!
- Highly recommended to capture your big day with no stress
Lisa was brilliant from initial meeting when we discussed what we wanted, she always relied to emails quickly In the following year and was happy to go extra locations to get a variety of pictures of we wanted to. Me and my husband aren’t particularly used to posing/ having photos taken but she was very friendly and professional so it wasn’t awkward She captured a great mixture of shots from posed traditional, loads I had no idea had been taken which was brill and lots of guests and details We arrived home after our 2 week honeymoon to the disc of pictures which was lovely really quick There was a nice mix of black and white photos and the images were stunning they really captured the day We also ordered 3 storybooks which Lisa designed and was brilliant making lots of little changes so it was exactly what we wanted – we are so happy with the end result . Very highly recommend for a brilliant service, beautiful photos and no hassle. Thanks so Much Lisa for capturing our day so Beautifully!
Lisa was the photographer at our wedding on 27.06.15. Lisa is an absolute professional and I would reccommend her without hesitation – 10 out of 10. From the outset Lisa was very supportive and helpful in guiding us through the key shots we wanted to capture our special day. On the day, Lisa was prompt and organised. She blended into the background and was able captured some amazing pictures. After the wedding we recieved our pictures on disk much quicker than expected and we were very impressed with the quality and number of pictures. Book her now!!
- Excellent and friendly
Lisa took some really lovely photographs of our wedding and sent them to us in no time at all. She was friendly and helpful, and I would definitely recommend her Thank you, Lisa!
- Fantastic photographer
Lisa photographed our wedding on 26th september 2014, From our initial meeting to recieving the photos Lisa has been fab. She was always quick to respond to my queries and concerns in the months leading up to the big day. This re-assured us, we knew we were in good hands. On the day itself Lisa blended into the crowds and did her thing, what a great job that was. We felt very comfortable, and were able to relax. We were so happy to recieve the disc of photos so soon after the wedding, the pictures are amazing. Both informal and formal pictures capture our special day. Now we have the difficult decision of choosing a selection to go into an album, but Lisa has re-assured us there is no rush. Lisa was also willing to accommodate my demanding mothers request of an additional disc for her. Thankyou Lisa for your hard work and capturing our special day, that we will never forget thanks to these wonderful snaps.
- Wonderful Photographs and Friendly Service
I would definitely recommed Lisa as a wedding photograher. We found her via google, and contacted her as she seemed very reasonably priced. We had spoken to a couple of photographers at wedding fairs, and they either seemed very expensive and commercial, or to be offering ‘budget’ packages. We were looking for someone who could take formal but contemporary photographs, as well as some which were artisitic/fun but not cheesy or cliche. Lisa definitely achieved this. Right from the initial meeting she offered advice and ideas, but was very open to what we wanted. I sent her a couple of ideas I had found, and she was more than happy to incorporate them. On the day she was friendly and enthusiastic, organising people without being demanding. The photos are beautiful!
- Amazing photographs that we will treasure forever!
Lisa was so professional at our wedding, from start to finish. Her friendly personality put everyone at ease, and as a result she got some great shots! Her unobtrusive approach meant that everyone could enjoy the day without even realising there was a photographer there, until the formal group shots took place. The end result is an amazing set of photographs that we will treasure forever! I would recommend Lisa to anyone, she’s a star! x
- Very friendly and professional
Lisa was very friendly and professional. She was very discrete so not to intrude on your special day. However she worked very hard throughout the day to capture special moments. The photos were beautiful and she offered very good value for money. I would highly recommend her. Becky and Gareth
- Just perfect
It was a pleasure to have Lisa photograph our wedding from start to finish. Like others we had spoken to many other photographers that were more ‘commercially’ minded but after our first meeting with Lisa we were convinced that not only would she be able to do a great job of photographing our day and producing a wonderful album but also that she would go about it in a friendly and professional way. We were not disappointed! Thank you very much for all your hard work Lisa and also having the patience to wait 6 months for us to decide on photos for the album!
- Beautiful natural photos
We found Lisa via a google search and liked her website, very informative and had a down to earth sense to it. The fact that she did a lot of capturing the moment photos sealed it for us, along with being given full access to every photo taken. Lisa was very professional and knew exactly how to get the best shot, she was very organised and didn’t stop all day. A lot of our guests commented on how polite, lovely and unobtrusive she was throughout the whole day. We are extremely pleased with the photos and she captured all the memorable moments. We are so happy we chose her and would 100% recommend her to anyone else, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much Lisa for everything.
- Highly recommended – a true professional.
When we first met Lisa we felt instantly relaxed and knew she would be a good choice of wedding photographer. Our wedding day was on a cold, snowy weekend in January 2013. We were very impressed that Lisa had actually stayed in a hotel overnight to ensure the weather didn’t cause her any transport problems. This was typical of her excellent attention to detail throughout the day. Despite our wedding venue being quite dark, the quality of her photos was fantastic. Lisa took a wide variety of photos to capture the day perfectly; we hardly noticed her taking some of the more candid shots. One of the main things we requested was a selection of family group photos and she captured these perfectly. A big tick in the box for Lisa is that she is not precious over copyright like a lot of other wedding photographers. I would strongly recommend the photo album option – even though it took us over a year to choose our photos(!), the end result was well worth it and something to treasure for years to come. Thanks again and good luck for the future!
- Magical day
My daughters wedding was in december ’13, Lisa was very professional, organising us all without us realising it and she was very patient and unobtrusive, her friendly manner put everyone at ease. The photographs were amazing and looked so natural, she captured our laughter and tears. Thank you Lisa, very best wishes. Dawn Griffiths
Lisa photographed our wedding on 6th June at Bredbury Hall in Stockport. Working with a bride who doesn’t like having photographs taken can’t be easy!! However, Lisa was excellent. Warm, quiet, unobtrusive but reassuring & professional; as a result we were quite relaxed and the photos on the DVD we received shortly after the wedding were all lovely. We particularly like the ‘unposed’ photos that were taken without the subjects knowing: This made for some wonderful shots providing delightful memories of the occasion. We will find it difficult to choose the required number of pics for our album as they’re all so good. We would highly recommend Lisa for your wedding photography. Thanks Lisa! x
- Beautiful Photos
Thankyou Lisa for our wedding photographs. The disc arrived promptly and we haven’t stopped looking at the pictures since. You captured our day perfectly, I especially love the unposed pictures and some of the facial expressions you captured. Your unobtrusive and friendly manner was really appreciated on the day and was commented on positively by many of our guests. Thanks again – Shelley and Phill Torres x
- exceptional service
Lisa is very professional and calmly gets the best shots to tell the story of the whole day from start to finish. She is unobtrusive but able to organize people quickly and effectively. The resulting disc of photos was beyond our expectations. We would certainly recommend Lisa to anyone considering their wedding. As a bonus we found her a lovely person to work with.
- Amazing professional
Lisa, we would just like to say a massive thank you, you arrived at my house at 10am on the morning of our wedding and did not leave until after 9pm, you were so professional and half the time we didn’t know you were there, nearly every person at our wedding commented at how amazing you were. We received our album today and were overwhelmed with the thought that has gone into it, you tell an amazing story of our incredible day. Thank you again Lisa, we will be recommending you to all our family and friends, Sue & Les xxx ??
- Don’t look any further for your wedding photographer
In the stressful process of planning a wedding you put a lot of trust in a lot of people, and by far the best decision we made in planning our wedding was securing Lisa as our photographer. Lisa without a doubt delivered above and beyond anybody else that we dealt with (venues, florists, DJs, suit hire etc); it was a pleasure to have her involved in our wedding day. From our initial meeting Lisa was friendly, organised and efficient, and on the day was magical – all of our guests were put at ease and commented on how lovely Lisa was. We chose to order an album from Lisa, and created a number of bespoke albums ourselves for our families – Lisa’s package is brilliant value for money compared to many other local photographers. If you choose Lisa as your photographer for your special day it will be one stress-free aspect of your wedding, ending with beautiful pictures to cherish forever. The reviews on here speak volumes – Lisa really did make a big impression on our big day, and we couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
- What more could you ask for!
The most perfect day of our lives and what a pleasure it was to see the results that Lisa had managed to capture. Out of the full disc of pictures I can’t say that there isn’t 1 I don’t love! She is such a lovely person too… Nothing is too much trouble, and very patient with the children who were determined to kick off having the photos done, but she didn’t even flinch. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone and as a very anxious bride she completely put me at ease for the first time we met. I can’t thank her enough. Very reasonably priced too for the service that you receive! Thank you again Lisa. Mr & Mrs Williams
- Absolutely brilliant – highly recommend!
Lisa was the photographer for our wedding at Capesthorne Hall in May this year. From beginning to end she has been fantastic. It was important for us to have someone we felt comfortable around and we knew from the initial meeting that she would be perfect for us. She was happy to work with our ideas but also lead us with her own suggestions so that we got a really great selection of photos. Her patience with the younger guests who insisted on playing in the background to the shots has to be admired! Lisa was absolutely what we were looking for and great value for money as well. Can’t recommend her highly enough. Thanks!!
Lisa was brilliant from start to finish. I loved the formal pictures and the natural pictures. It was apparent straight away that she was a lovely person as well which helped to put everyone at ease. As she knew the venue well she was able to take us over to some hidden away spots where she managed to get some of the best pictures of the day. She showed a lot of patience in getting the group shots just right and was willing to stay until late in the day to get the shots of our first dance. She was professional throughout and did a great job at a good price.
- Thank you Lisa
My mum actually found Lisa, I was a little concerned we had only seen her website and not any of her portfolios but I really shouldn’t have worried. As soon as we met Lisa it was obvious she was right for us; very relaxed but also professional and obviously experienced. A few weeks before the wedding I sent her a list of all the formal shots I wanted, which really helped on the day. When we were getting ready I barely noticed Lisa was there but when we got the photos back there are beautiful shots of my family getting ready that I will treasure forever. My favourite shots are probably the ones of my husband and I together. We were both a bit nervous about these but Lisa didn’t make the experience cringeworthy at all. Having the copyright is great, I just need to get round to ordering a beautiful photo album from Lisa now!! Thanks so much Lisa you were perfect for us x
- Thank you
The photos were fantastic they really captured the moments of our day. All the pictures were exactly as we had discussed and imagined with lots of informal photos, capturing personal moments. Lisa was very accommodating and helpful on the day too. thanks very much
- fabulous lady !!
Lisa was a dream to work with leading up to the wedding If I needed to speak to her or had a question she was willing To help She captured our wedding day perfectly we are so happy with our Pictures and can’t wait for our wedding I would recommend Lisa for ur wedding photos as you won’t be disappointed x
- Fantastic photographer
Lisa was so friendly and personable at our first meeting that we both knew straight away she was the photographer for us. Together we made a thorough list of the images and group shots we wanted to capture on the day so we were really relaxed on the day knowing all the photos we wanted would be taken. Lisa is fantastic to work with, so relaxed and made us and all our guests feel totally at ease. I would thoroughly recommend Lisa to anyone, our photos are absolutely perfect
- A must have wedding photographer!
From the moment we met Lisa we knew she was the photographer for us! From the initial consultation we just knew we were in safe hands. Your wedding day is the most special day of your life. Your photos and your rings, are the only things you are left with (apart from your wonderful memories) to remind you of the best day of your life. You want to do it right! We could not of been happier with our photographs. Lisa comes to your home if you wish and runs through all the details, shows you some of her amazing albums, you will not be dissapointed. Lisa was not pushy as other photographers were at some bridal shows we went to, but made you feel relaxed and explained every detail. On the big day Lisa was there every step of the way. Taking photos of us getting ready, the ceremony, then all day, through to the first dance. We didn’t even know she was there! We had formal photos, creative photos, relaxed photos. We could not rate Lisa highly enough! When our disc came there was not one photo we were not happy with. She’s brilliant, and captures every moment perfectly. Our whole magical day through a story of photos. Afterwards we decided to also have an album from Lisa too and it is show stopping! ‘I’ve never seen anything like it’ people have said. It truly is a work of art in itself, and shows Lisa’s talents again. Nothing is to much trouble for Lisa, we used to call and ask questions and make sure she knew what we wanted, she was always available to help. Wonderful! A must have wedding photographer!!!
- Our photos are amazing, just like Lisa!
We first met Lisa when we contacted her over a year before our wedding. She is friendly, professional and was excellent in communication from the first time we met her in our home to the delivery of our photos. Lisa managed to achieve a perfect balance of organising our guests without being too authoritarian (as we’ve experenced some photographers being) she caputured the natural shots which speak a thousand words. The photographs themselves are amazing. We really loved the option of the CD only package. we would have no hesitation in recommending Lisa to anyone as their wedding photographer. Thank you Lisa. Love Jenn and Dave Appleton x
- Fantastic Service
Finding a photographer for our wedding started to become impossible as my fiancé was very picky (he is an amateur photographer himself) and no one I suggested to him was good enough or they were far too expensive. I found Lisa on the internet and having looked at her Gallery and prices both my hubby and I felt that she would be ideal. Lisa works in the Cheshire area and has a set price guide for her photography so I was a bit worried that she may turn down our wedding as we live in Shropshire however from the moment I first spoke to her she was fantastic and she was willing to travel that little bit further without further charge to us. Lisa was fantastic on the day, none intrusive, relaxed yet professional. She arrived to start taking pics as I started getting ready and remained until our first dance was over. Everyone at my wedding commented on how great she was and we gave her a standing ovation at the end of the day. The disc we got had so many wonderful and varied pics which meant we struggled to pick the final 75 for our album however once we did, we couldn’t have been more happier with the finish quality and professionalism. I cant thank Lisa enough for the hard work she put in and would recommend her to anyone. The disc we received allowed us to share our photos with friends and family who don’t live close by and the album is beautiful (worth the extra payment in my opinion). Lisa is very open about cost, so there are no hidden extra charges and her work is amazing – again thank you Lisa for capturing our special day.
- Thank You, Lisa!
I actually wrote a review on here in October having seen Lisa photographing a friends’ wedding – we were so impressed with her that we asked there and then if she was available on our wedding day… we weren’t disappointed – Lisa is fantastic, she’s really calm and collected and knows what she’s doing – she arrived a good few hours before we got married, to photograph the prep stages in the bridal suite, dealt with the chaos brilliantly and got some really fab, ‘as they happen’ shots while us ladies were getting ready. Lisa was brilliant at getting my two young, shy, Nieces (little bridesmaids) to pose for her. The shots of me coming down the stairs towards my Dad before he gave me away are amazing, and we didn’t even know that Lisa had photographed our actual ceremony until we got our photos back. Once again, incredible – totally natural, brilliantly captured pics – afterwards when we had all the group shots, she was great, and the results are fantastic. Lisa stayed with us all the way up to our first dance – and again we didn’t spot her – even though she must have been standing on a chair at one point in order to get a different angle!! In short, we’re really really pleased with our photos – all 237 of them lol x so glad we chose Lisa
- Lisa did totally perfect job!!!
We got married on 7th Oct and i can not recommend Lisa enough! We both hate our photos being taken and Lisa completely put us at ease and the photos look so relaxed and natural. Lisa captured our day completley and with such a big family has managed to include everyone! At one stage i actually thought Lisa had a superwomen cape on as she managed to be everywhere but we never even knew she was there! We changed our plans at the last minute due to some rain and Lisa’s organisation to get everyone back inside the church for the more formal shots was totally impressive. We are so happy with our photos and they will be treasured for ever! A huge thank you to you Lisa!!!!!
- Fantastic wedding photographer
Lisa did the photography for our wedding in August 2011 and she was amazing! From our first meeting to receiving the album, everything was wonderful. She was always so organised and happy to answer any questions before the big day and we knew we were in good hands. On the day itself, she made us feel so comfortable (even though neither of us really likes having our photo taken!) and was really organised. We were so excited about receiving the images after the wedding, and were not disappointed. They are all beautiful and we love the mix of formal and informal shots. Choosing pictures for the album was tough but once we’d narrowed them down the album was fantastic – such high quality images presented in a beautiful way. We’re so happy we chose Lisa to provide these memories of our special day and cannot recommend her enough!
- Our amazing wedding dated 30th June 2012
Lisa photographed our wedding day on the 30th June 2012, from the moment we met Lisa we know we wanted her to help make our wedding day special. Lisa thought of every detail to capture our day and made us feel special and is such a warm and lovely person. When we received our pictures they were as amazing as we hoped and didnt have to wait too long for them either. Deffinatly reccommend to Lisa to anyone😉
- friendly service
We haven’t even had Lisa’s services ourselves yet! We met Lisa at a friends’ wedding and were so impressed with her making everyone at ease and putting fab shots together that it was ‘search over’ for a photographer for our own wedding next year. Can’t wait. We just know that our pictures will be amazing even though both of us don’t like having our photos taken! Lovely knowing that we can relax about that side of our day now.
- fab wedding fab pics
Lisa was jus amazing made me feel like a princess, for first time ever i felt comfortable having my photo taken thanks to her, and the pics were amazing and lots of natural pics of people enjoying the day, lisa’s pics really reflected the beautiful happy feelings of the whole day.

- First Class Wedding Photogra[hy
Lisa did an amazing job with our wedding photographs. The disc we received contained every photo taken on the day and the photo book was absolutely beautiful. Lisa was in no way intrusive on the day and many of our guests commented on how professional and approachable she was. No request was too much trouble. I would highly recommend Lisa.
- wedding photography
lisa did our wedding photos for or wedding on the 25th june 2011 and i have to say we couldnt have asked for anyone else she was great and the photos are fantastic the best i have ever seen and i would recomend to everyone i know
- Excellent Photographer, beautiful photos!
We were so happy with the service Lisa provided right from the start! The preparations were effortless – I didn’t even have to worry about anything to do with the photos as Lisa was so efficient it was all taken care of! On the day Lisa was very well liked by the guests – very friendly and professional. She captured both the formal and casula shots beautifully! Overall really happy to recommend Lisa for her excellent service and value for money!
- Lisa is amazing!!!!
We chose Lisa for our wedding on 10th September 2011. Right from the start she was very professional but warm and friendly at the same time. Nothing was too much trouble and she put us at ease right from the start. We received the disk of our photos today and we are thrilled with them! They are beautiful and she really has captured the spirit of our day. She got some great intimate shots without anyone noticing she was there. I can not recommend her highly enough. Choosing Lisa was the best decision we made. The best bit is getting copyright for all the pictures and no pressure to buy a photobook. Thanks to Lia we have a lovely reminder of our day.
What can I say?? Lisa is A-MA-ZING! We got married in July and chose Lisa to photograph our day. What a choice it was! From our first meeting a couple of months beforehand I knew we had made the right choice, extremely professional throughout. She really knows how to make you feel at ease too for the ‘posy’ shots. The candid shots of the guests were a lovely surprise as we didn’t notice her sneaking round snapping away All in all we couldn’t be happier with the service and the end product, would recommend to anyone-you will not be disappointed! Thanks x
- Superb Personal Professional
Lisa photographed our wedding on 1st October. She did an absolutely superb job – despite the baking heat and super bright sun from the freak heatwave !! Lisa was professional from start to finish, always courteous to us and all our guests and snapped lots of natural shots which are fantastic. We’d recommend Lisa for any occasion.
