It's so lovely to meet you!
Here you will find a little bit more about me, and why I LOVE weddings and family photo shoots so much!
I am a wife, a mum, a traveller and a nature lover! Liberty Pearl is the name of my daughter. I set up the business back in 2013 so I could spend more time with little girl, who was aged 4 at the time, (she is 13 now!) and enjoy lots of adventures during the school holidays. And here I am 8 years later! I am now married to Jesse, and have an 9-year-old stepson, and a 2-year-old daughter!
I studied for my Conservation Biology degree at university in Bristol so I could travel anywhere in the world researching and photographing endangered species. But life guided me along a different path and after several years working as a music photographer I stepped into the world of wedding photography. What a monumental decision this turned out to be.
As a Christian, I love everything about marriage, and what it symbolises. Being able to capture this amazing moment in people’s lives is truly a blessing to me.
My personality is warm, welcoming and friendly. I love making people feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera and bringing out those natural smiles.
On your wedding day I'm helpful and organised. I go about my work in a calm, kind and considerate way. I blend into the background. You won't even know I'm there, which means you can relax and enjoy your day (and your canapés), stress free - knowing I will be documenting the big emotions, incredible couples shots, fun group photos, and all little moments that may pass you by.
When your sneak peek image gallery arrives 7 days later, you will be blown away by how fantastic your wedding photos are. That perfect combination of quality and style you wanted. Beautiful memories you will treasure forever!
Hey, I'm Amber!

Here's a snapshot into my world.
A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life
We have travelled across the globe, starting with a month long trip to America to visit my father in law, I fell in love with New York! We then took our honeymoon in South Africa and stayed in Cape town which was BEAUTIFUL!
We have since enjoyed trips to Italy - Tuscany & Amalfi Coast, France, and Ibiza. Where next?
Definitely Spain, it's where my husband grew up and I can't wait for him to show us around!
Es Vedra, Ibiza
Traveling WITH MY HUSBAND
One of the main reasons I became a wedding photographer is because I LOVE marriage. I was a single mum at the time, and it made me so happy to see couples, so in love on their wedding day. It inspired me to set my goal of finding myself a husband, and I did (I will save that story for another day)!
I love hearing the stories of how couples met during the speeches, and I love an engagement story however perfect or eventful it may be!
This is my favourite bible verse about marriage
"I have found the one whom my soul loves”
Song of Solomon 3:4
Kingsand Village Hall, Cornwall
A family of five who live five minutes from the coast.
You will find us outdoors whatever the weather! Wild swimming & kayaking at our local beach.
Camping in Cornwall for weeks over the summer months, enjoying the local beaches , and eating Cornish Clotted cream ice-creams ! In winter we are walking on Dartmoor or visiting the local south west coastal paths.
My children love jumping in muddy puddles and going on 'adventures', wild camping on Dartmoor, pony rides, and learning to surf!
Seaton Beach, Cornwall
My Blended family
I love wedding cakes they are just so pretty and super tasty! Favourite flavour has to be lemon and elderflower! Best invention ever!
I love popping down to our local bakery to find out what pastries they have baked fresh that morning (and whether they have anything left)! My favourites are the giant cinnamon croissants! YUM!
I also love going to my favourite cafe for a latte and slice of cake to catch up with friends, I love cake!
EDIBLE ESSENCE DESSERT TABLE, Deer Park
I have been a Christian for the past 9 years, it coincided with starting my wedding photography business, (I'll leave that story for another day)!
My faith is very important to me, so of course I LOVE a church wedding! They are so much fun. I love praying for my couples and blessing their marriages.
I capture weddings from all faiths, religions, beliefs and traditions, and have photographed Catholic, Hindu, Muslim, Chinese, African, Asian weddings, and hand fasting ceremonies and Celtic blessings and I loved them all!

My Favourite Things
Due to high demand and never wanting to disappoint any of our lovely couples, Liberty Pearl has evolved into a Collective of photographers and film-makers - all united by a desire to deliver our award-winning service with professionalism and in our unified elegant and rustic style.
Love stories are our forte. Nature inspires all that we do.
We breathe in the sea mist while capturing couples at our favourite Southwest Coastal Venues.
Our hands brush against the green grass of a Country Estate as we find the right position to film you walking down the aisle in your outdoor ceremony.
We love what we do.
We LOVE a weddings that don't follow traditions.
Our images reflect a couple and their personalities, however joyful, stylish, or calm you may be!
No two weddings are the same and we treat each one as a blank canvas.
We develop a personal relationship with every couple because understanding your unique personalities allows us to use our organised unobtrusive approach, to put you at ease, capture your incredible wedding day, to create beautiful memories that are priceless and cherished.
I am very organised and personally handle all inquiries and bookings and love talking through the wedding details, and hearing your engagement stories, especially the funny ones that didn’t go to plan!
I wish I could capture every wedding we book, they are all so beautiful and stylish in so many ways.
We have been named as one of the top 50 UK wedding photographers in 2019, 2020 and 2021, which is a fantastic achievement because it's a very competitive industry.
There are so many amazing wedding photographers right here in Devon & Cornwall alone so thank you for taking the time to look around the Liberty Pearl website.
"We had such a lovely experience with Amber for my surprise proposal on Boxing Day, it was such a magical experience getting engaged but also having all the photos in the moment to look back to. I keep looking back and tearing up, the photos are absolutely beautiful and we will cherish the moments forever.
Amber is so friendly and made us both feel so at ease in front of the camera while having photos afterwards and doing an engagement style photoshoot for us where it all happened which made it all the more special, she even got some beautiful shots of our dog with us in his neckerchiefs!
It was so lovely for her too take time out of her festive period to help my partner to make our very special Christmas memories.
I would recommend Liberty Pearl photo and film to anyone who is looking for a friendly, warm and welcoming photographer and the photos taken are absolutely gorgeous and so natural.
Thank you so so much!💗💗💗💗💗

"We are SO pleased that we had Liberty Pearl Photography as our wedding photographer. Amber was so lovely and helpful throughout the planning process and on the day.
She put everyone at ease in front of the camera, while also organising group shots quickly and effectively – which meant we could also enjoy our canapés!
The photographs are beautiful, from the detail shots of the table set up to our couples photos, we will treasure them forever and looking through the album takes us straight back to the best day of our lives.
Thank you Amber x"

"Amber is an incredible photographer, I am so glad she was able to capture our lockdown wedding. She is patient, creative and she is so calm that you feel at ease - especially if you are camera shy!
Due to COVID-19, we changed our wedding date THREE times, but Amber has been so accommodating and supportive throughout the whole journey, adjusting her schedule to help us.
We will treasure these images forever, she did such a stunning job and we are still in awe of them.
We really appreciate you Amber! ❤️"

"Amber was the most wonderful photographer and took all of the shots that were important for us for when we look back at our wedding day. She made us feel at ease, especially when taking the couples shots when we didn't really know what to do! She also coordinated our group photos really well and absolutely nailed the balance of fun without being cheesy. We are so in love with our photos - thanks so much!"

"Amber is absolutely brilliant and I would recommend her in a heartbeat! We wanted a relaxed wedding photographer who would capture natural shots and people's emotions on the day. The photos we got were better than anything we could have imagined!
Amber helped advise on timings, organising group shots seamlessly - she captured the day perfectly and was so unobtrusive. We're absolutely delighted with the photos, especially given the extremely windy conditions Amber had to work in for the outdoor shots!
Thank you so much for creating fantastic memories of our special day ❤"

"Absolutely over the moon, Amber is an absolute artist. She was amazing on the day, super friendly and lovely. We had our ‘sneak peek’ photos today (it is rare to get photos back this soon, you won’t get this from many photographers!) and we are blown away by the beauty of her work. We are so excited to get the rest now because they are so stunning. Thank you thank you thank you!!"
