Benefits of choosing Cottrell for your headshot


With years of creative photography behind me I use each experience to continually build on my skill level which means amazing photos for you! 


I will not rest until you have the photographs you imagined. It’s the small touches that make such a difference.


As a Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Certified Photographer, I’m in the tiny percentage of artists who strive for this level of excellence. 


To be honest, I was quite nervous about being in front of the camera on my own wedding day! All that smiling and posing!

Because being a little camera shy is a common phenomenon it’s important that we feel comfortable with each other before the big day!

By listening to you and inserting a little of my British sense of humor and laid back style the jitters soon fly away leaving us free to enjoy the photographic journey together!

Showing you a few shots on the back of the camera as we progress often helps you see how amazing you look and makes for better and better images as the day evolves. As Jacksonville Wedding Photographers we’ve heard time and time again how we make people feel at ease..

Getting married is so exciting! Ironing out the details and planning the day can be a little nerve wracking that’s for sure! From looking for the perfect wedding venue, an officiant that shares your values, finding the dress or tux of your dreams and a photographer that will document your day….. It can be a little overwhelming! Well I can certainly help to put your mind at ease regarding a photographer! You’ll want to have the emotions of the day, the tears, laughter, sighs and loving hugs captured forever. You will love showing your children and grandchildren one day and sharing the day with them! Whatever the scale of your wedding, be it a few family members or a larger wedding it’s a day to treasure forever.

A $500 retainer will reserve your date and time. I pride myself on keeping things organized and punctual and will always be willing and available to answer any questions you might have before, during and after your Wedding day.
