Photos by CJ turns 13!

so happy to win this award - female wedding photographer in kent

So today is the 13th anniversary of Photos by CJ (used to be Swinky Photography back in the day)!

Wow. What a few years!

Well.. My business got through a pandemic eh? How many people get to say that eh? (well… lots of people do.. but I just mean from an era perspective it’s a pretty massive thing to say).

So how does it feel?

It feels pretty darn amazing actually. I’ve been blessed to have met so many amazing Brides, Grooms, Same-sex couples and family members who are always so welcoming and genuine and who have made my job literally the best job in the world.

So, what has been happening in my life?

Well as all of you that follow me on Facebook know; first came Wolfgang into my life

If that wasn’t enough I met a man and quickly went from #singledogmum to… well… not single


Over the 13 years, I have taken on a second job when things have been slow and opened up a studio when things have been busy.

Though Wedding photography has been my core business throughout, I have loved clients coming to me for:

  • Pregnancy
  • Boudoir
  • Headshots
  • Family

I’ve even been asked to create and photograph a mermaid!

Something I’d love to do is, pet portraiture… let me know if you want to be the first!

Here are some of my favourite photos from over the years
