Let me tell you a little about me….
I’m Claire, an outdoorsy, animal loving, coffee drinker (and yep, ok, gin drinker!) with a passion for photographing people! I live just outside Solihull with my husband, two daughters, our cuddly, giant vizsla Skye, our mini sausage dog Joey and our cat Ziggy, who is the most vocal cat I have ever know and is obsessed with squeezing into cardboard boxes!
Family means the world to me. After tragically losing my wonderful dad 5 years ago, I know just how much the little moments matter. I firmly believe you can never have too many photographs of the people you love.
For me, life is all about experiences, going on adventures, laughing until you cry and making amazing memories along the way.
In the last 8 years of photographing weddings, I have worked with the most awesome couples who bring so much fun and creativity to their wedding day. They are relaxed, laid back and and the most important thing to them about their day is having the best celebration with all the people they love the most. They want fun filled, emotional photos that bring back all the amazing moments of their day and a photographer that will fit right in along with their guests.
When I am not photographing weddings or families, you will probably find me riding a horse, walking across the fields with my mini & giant dog combo, or drinking flat whites and eating cake with friends! I’m also a bit of a dab hand at the ukulele (everyone learnt a lock down instrument right??!)
Who is poppy k?
So, you’ve noticed my name’s Claire, not Poppy! I named the business after my two daughters. Photographing my gorgeous girls is what originally propelled me into the world of professional photography, and they remain a huge source of inspiration.
A Hampton Manor wedding is stunning whatever the weather! I have photographed winter weddings in the snow, summer weddings in blazing sun and a gorgeous spring wedding earlier in the year, jumping from umbrellas to glorious sunshine. I arrived for bridal prep for this...

An outdoor, lakeside wedding ceremony in the sunshine- how gorgeous does that sound? This is exactly how Chloe & Alex exchanged their wedding vows, at their Wootton Park Wedding. It is such a pretty setting and definitely one to wow the guests. Wootton Park...
