About Us

Professional photographer

Brief History & Description

Welcome to Buds and Branches Photography. We are a small, family run photography studio located in Shepperton,  Surrey. Our names are Jean-Paul and Hannah and from a young age, photography has always inspired us. The fact that a small camera can capture so much more than just an image, but emotions, memories and feelings, is what has driven us to create art through the medium of photography.

As parents ourselves, we have experienced first hand just how fleeting the moments that we cherish can be. Every day is different and every chapter of our lives passes by with a wisp of the wind, so here at Buds and Branches Photography, we pride ourselves on freezing time and preserving those chapters for you to keep and cherish.

We both started photography many years ago. While I (Jean-Paul) was travelling all over Europe working as an airline pilot, I was lucky enough to see many amazing places and witness incredible natural sights as well as develop essential and advanced skills in photography. In the meantime, Hannah worked in a photography studio and eventually moved on to working in a maternity unit and later in schools, while maintaining her photography as a hobby. We felt at the time that it made perfect sense to invest in a decent camera, the Sony NEX5, and photograph everything that we were experiencing. Eventually in 2015, after several years of gaining experience and the inevitable death of our beloved camera, we decided to start Buds and Branches Photography together.

Now with our expanding horizons, we have invested in some of the best camera technology, computer hardware and software alike. This is enabling us to create true art that not only captures your precious moments, but adds real depth and natural beauty to them through working together with you, creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere during sessions, knowledge of our equipment and very subtle post processing.

We offer a wide variety of packages that range from portrait, family, maternity, baby and bespoke. Please have a look at the pricing menu above and let us know if there's anything we can do to tailor any packages to your needs. If you would like to get in touch, you can do so from the contact page via email, or just give us a call and we will try to answer any questions you might have.
