Carol is simply amazing. She understood exactly what style of photos we wanted and she captured those beautifully. Each photo captured a moment and a memory, instead of smiles being forced etc. I felt Carol was incredible value! Her work is turned around quickly. I have been recommending her left, right, and centre.
Thank you so much for your review Rebecca! xx
Carol Elizabeth Photography's response
Carol was an absolute dream to work with, from our very first trial shoot she was great at putting us at ease and getting the most natural and beautiful photos. We're thrilled with our wedding photos and Carol was able to get the perfect shots without having to take ages out of the day which was really important to us. Thank you again for everything Carol - we massively recommend her!
Top Photographer. If your getting married in the Oxford area, Carol is the wedding photographer to choose!

I have worked alongside Carol for a number of years now and it's always been a pleasure. She's professional and knows how to put her couples at ease. She is able to capture the essence of the day in a friendly and efficient manner, which shows the care she takes to get to know her couples. I would highly recommend Carol to any couple.

Working with Carol on a number of weddings I feel moved to say just how good she is. Not only does she produce beautiful work but she achieves this by working in a charming, extremely likeable and highly professional manner and is a pleasure to have around.
We would highly recommend Carol, she is unflappable even when others around her are losing their heads. She lets you know exactly what she is going to do and when she is going to do it. We printed off a timetable of the day and she managed to fit all of the photographs we had requested around that, plus way way more. We have had so may compliments on the photos and a lot of people wanting to get copies of their own. She is so friendly that we felt at ease straight away with her. Her photography style is very easy to follow and she didn't make us stand in any awkward poses or do anything we weren't comfortable with. The photos are timeless. She always kept to schedule and was flexible enough to work in close proximity to the videographer and still manage to avoid getting him in any shot. We were incredibly impressed with her work and loved having her there on the day. She is hands down the best decision we made for our wedding!
Carol is a very good photographer who captured some great shots of our wedding day. We found her to be very professional and efficient from start to finish. She was willing to do a pre-wedding photoshot which really helped as we aren’t usually comfortable with having our photos taken and this allowed us to relax for the big day. She is also very good at taking ‘natural’ shots which is a photo style I personally prefer. We will always treasure our photos from her. Thank you so much. Nikki and Ben :)
I have had the pleasure of seeing Carol in action at numerous weddings, and find she always provides a professional, reliable and first -rate service to all the couples she has photographed. I have no hesitation in recommending her service to couples looking for a photographer for their big day.
Carol was great in every way. We loved her style - our photos are simple yet sophisticated, and classic but modern at the same time. We wanted beautiful photos to elegantly tell the story of the day, and that's what we got. Our more formal and posed shots are wonderful, but she is also a pro at capturing all those many candid and natural moments of our guests having a good time. She was also so relaxed and down to earth, which made us feel relaxed - a huge help! Highly recommended.
Always a pleasure to work with Carol , a true professional and goes the extra mile to delight her couples.
Carol photographed our wedding at Cogges Manor farm back in June and she really made it a perfect day. She catered to our day in the way we wanted it to be. She remained so calm throughout the day which I think is really important, and was a complete professional. We loved the photos that we received and were exactly what we were looking for from our day.
Carol was our wedding photographer this year. Where do I start? She’s AMAZING! So so pleased with our photos, very natural and off the cuff, with the formal ones to! She’s so relaxed and everything we were looking for in a photographer! Captured every moment, and even ones we didn’t know had happened! Truly special! Best choice we made to have carol they’re on our very special day! She’s a lovely lady to more than 5* ????
Carol was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Her eye for detail was just perfect. We truly love our engagement photos and our wedding ones too! On our wedding day, carol turned up on time and ready to get snapping - she wasn’t imposing like some photographers can be it was nice to know that we had some very natural photos without the need to “pose”. I have a few that I particularly like, just perfect! Thank you again!!
Absolutely fantastic photographer. Really understood what we wanted to make our wedding the best day ever. She managed to capture everything we absolutely love our wedding photos.
Carol was very professional and helpful all the way up to the day and in her after care providing the photos etc. We've never been comfortable subjects for photography and she was great with her friendly but firm approach. Really knows how to get the most from her subjects.
Working at weddings alongside Carol is always a pleasure and great fun. She is very professional but also warm, friendly and accommodating to couples and guests. Would highly recommend speaking to Carol to discuss capturing your big day. She gets some fab pics from the party too!
We really enjoyed having Carol photograph our wedding! She put us at our ease and was very friendly. It was great to have met up for a coffee and practice shoot before the big day too. And maybe most importantly, we had lots of wonderful photos at the end!

Carol was brilliant on our wedding day! Her style really told a story of our day which we will be able to look back on everytime we see our photos. Such a lovely lady who knows exactly what shes doing. Thank you Carol, we cant recommend you highly enough..
How uplifting it is to view all Carol Elizabeth's wedding photographs. She certainly captures the beauty and individuality of ever bride and groom.
I have worked with Carol a few times and as a videographer we clicked immediately and she was so friendly and accommodating. She takes beautiful photos and is fun and easy going which makes her the perfect photographer to work with.

Carol was the photographer for our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with her service and photos. Carol was kind and professional throughout the whole process, from first making contact and talking through our options to the day itself. She really put us at ease, and helped us to relax and have fun. The photos she took are beautiful (we even managed to not look totally goofy in most of them - quite the achievement!), and working with her throughout has been a pleasure. Thank you so much Carol!
Carol stepped in last minute to assist on the photographing of our wedding day. She was so professional and her photos are beautiful, so stunning. With hindsight I would have just booked her directly rather than the photographer we did go with.
Carol did our wedding last June & was brilliant from start to finish, putting us at ease & producing a fabulous final album. She also took some extra photos of us for our save the dates. Many of our guests have commented of how great our wedding day photos are. I would highly recommend Carol as a wedding photographer!

Absolutely the best wedding photographer ever!! Booked her for our daughters wedding. Carol gave us lots of time, listened to what we all wanted and totally delivered lots of very special shots! Took control when she needed to but wasn't in your face spoiling the day like some do. Captured ALL the special moments on the day (even some we missed!)...how she did it I just don't know. Can't recommend her enough.

Couldn’t recommend Carol enough. From meeting at a wedding fair to our finished photographs, we never imagined so many incredible memories being captured. Thank you Carol.

As a fellow photographer who has shot with Carol at a number of weddings I know that Carol is someone who really contributes to the day in a positive way. Professional, conscientious, always extremely pleasant and I know that clients are delighted with what she does. The photographs really do speak for themselves. Highly recommended.
Totally professional and delivered a lovely set of images
Carol did our wedding at Laims Barn in October. She was fantastic and professional. We were blown away by the photos!
Carol has been so lovely in speaking to us, emailing us promptly with answering our many questions and seeing us before we signed up with her to do our wedding photos. Not been pushy at all and been so patient with us to help us choose what we want for our day.
Wonderful photos; very artistic but also true to the subjects :)
Carol was amazing on our wedding day. She made us all feel calm and ensured the day went smoothly. The pictures we received are just stunning and I would recommend carol to any future bride and groom!!
Absolutely amazing photos
We hired Carol as our wedding photographer two years ago and she was nothing short of amazing. My husband and I are quite awkward at having our photographs taken and she really put us at ease. The free pre-wedding shoot helped us to know what to expect. On the big day itself, Carol had a calming influence during the manic bridal preparations and even had enough time to get to the church and photograph our guests arriving. We had a mixture of formal and informal photographs which were all of a very high standard. We would thoroughly recommend her - you won't be disappointed

Working alongside Carol at a wedding in Oxford was brilliant. As a videographer, communicating with the photographer is really important on the day and Carol was so lovely and helpful and we were both mindful of each other so we could both get perfect shots. Would definitely recommend!

After meeting Carol at a Guides for Brides fair, we knew we wanted her to photograph our wedding! We loved the style of photography and really appreciated the informal and laid back approach. The photos are absolutely stunning and can't wait to receive our photo book!
Stacey - Awards nomination
Carol was absolutely amazing the photos are breathtaking and I will recommend Carol to anyone seeking a wedding photographer. I absolutely hate my picture being taken but Carol made me feel comfortable. Both myself and my wife shed a tear when we first saw how good the pictures came out. Carol captured our whole day with exceptional professionalism and was very patient especially as we had children and a dog to photograph (every photographers nightmare). Absolutely amazing service and amazing photographs
We cannot recommend Carol highly enough. We were a bit unsure of what we wanted but Carol had the perfect blend of patience and experience, and met with us a couple of times ahead of the day to help us flesh out our plans. On the day itself she got the balance exactly right between the formal and informal snaps of guests, and was always in the right place at the right time without ever being intrusive. Some of our favourite shots are the ones we didn't realise were being taken! The photos themselves are all excellent, and were processed really quickly. The online gallery was a real boon, and the ability to look through the photos online has been something that all our guests have really appreciated.
We picked Flash Photography, having narrowed down an internet search to around 5 wedding photography companies in the area. We went with Carol based on the quality of images on the website (the photographs were very natural with vivid colours, including a nice mix of candid and posed shots). We also felt that the package outlined (inclusive of 2 photographers, a DVD of images, and photobooks) seemed like good value compared with others. We were delighted we picked Carol, she was simply lovely to work with - and did not make us feel under pressure at any stage at all. She listened at every stage and was also happy to meet with us on a couple of occasions prior to the big day, where we were able to drill down to exactly what we wanted. On the day, Carol and Richard (2nd photographer) worked in the shots we wanted, but intertwined their own artistic license - much of the time without us even noticing their presence! They photographed an incredible number of high quality images, including photographs capturing all of our guests. Bearing in mind our wedding was in the middle of January, we were concerned about getting enough shots in decent light. However, the results show how well Flash Photography maximised these opportunities. We have been left delighted with the excellent coverage of the whole-day. Many thanks!
