About Kim Shaw

‘Kim Shaw Photography’ was born from my long standing love for capturing a particular moment so it can be kept forever. Even from a young age, as young as my early teens, you would find me with a camera in my hands, snapping away at family events – some of these photos I still cherish to this day!

I went to college to study photography and I am now a qualified, full time principal wedding photographer. 

After trying different types of photography, Weddings. Portraits, Lifestyle, Children, Pets and Newborn I decided that weddings was where my heart truly was, so I decided to concentrate on wedding photography and become a wedding photography specialist.  Now 13 years later I have a wealth of experience in photographing couples’ special wedding days and providing them with a high level of customer service as well as great quality wedding albums and products.  Over the years many of the couples have become friends and we still keep in touch which is really lovely.

Being based on the Border of three beautiful counties; Cheshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire I am extremely lucky to have a fantastic selection of beautiful wedding venues nearby and further afield that I photograph at regularly.

I like to get to know all of my clients on a personal level, therefore, it’s only fair that you know a little about me too. So here are some fun facts about me!

  • I come from the West Country…. which you may be able to tell when you talk to me by the give away twang in my accent (which I don’t think I have by the way)!
  • I got married in 2005 after a whirlwind romance!
  • We used to have a very intelligent house rabbit who would sit beside the fridge when he wanted some baby sweetcorn and the cupboard when he wanted breadsticks.
  • It took me 14 years to talk my husband into having a dog … persistence really does pay off as now we have our Wilma the tri-colour Cockapoo (who is adorable but a right little hooligan lol).
  • We love travelling, and Mexico is our favourite relaxing holiday destination (so if you’re getting married in Mexico, I’m in!) but we love to go to the Far East if we are feeling a little more adventurous!
  • I’m a really fussy eater but love a good roast dinner!
  • I am a Nutella loving chocoholic.
  • I love twiglets but don’t like Marmite.
  • I really cannot drink water I loathe the stuff… even having a number of sessions with a hypnotist couldn’t make me drink it ?.
  • I drink far too much fizzy pop (without ice).
  • I rarely drink alcohol but am partial to the odd glass of Baileys (with ice) or Southern Comfort and Coke …. full fat Coke …. never diet!
  • My friends and family say I am far too generous for my own good!
  • I love weddings and love my job. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do the work I do.
  • I regularly go on photography training courses to keep up with new trends and techniques.
  • My family and friends are everything to me and one of my favourite aspects of my job is being able to meet so many amazing people who often end up becoming friends.
