Cappel Photography

Family and Events Photographer in the Bristol and Bath Area

Hello! I'm Heike. I offer professional family photography in the Bristol, Bath and South Gloucestershire area.

I can meet you in your home or at an outdoor location. I'm happy to suggest locations that I know work well, but I'm also happy for suggestions of places you like.

The sessions are fun and relaxed and children often think they've just been out playing.

I also cover events such as birthday parties, sports events etc.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to book a photoshoot for your children or family!


We really enjoyed our family photoshoot with Heike. Heike's experience, ideas for shots, props and locations were fantastic. What could have been a stressful experience was made easy through Heike's expertise and warm countenance. Our little one enjoyed interacting with Heike and the outcome was a set of photographs which we absolutely love.


Thanks so much for the photos! They are fantastic and captured the day so well, nice to have such lovely memories of the day and everyone who was there!


We had a wonderful photoshoot with Heike! My two daughters had a lot of fun, Heike really made them feel at ease and took some lovely, natural photos of the girls. Heike is a very talented photographer who is amazing with children! The photos are really beautiful and I would 100% recommend Heike. Thank you!


I’ve had professional photos taken quite a few times, both in Britain and abroad, outdoors as well as in studio settings. It’s fair to say that none of those outfits can hold a candle to Heike. She is incredibly good at getting children (and adults) to pose for her, turning it into a game and making it fun. The pictures show the sparkle in the kid’s eyes, which is beautiful. She is also good at capturing kids on the move, clambering in tree tops, exploring play grounds, roaming the woods, making the photos look natural, while at the same time managing to create an emotive atmosphere. She has an excellent eye for setting and angle; Heike can turn a single tree with a bit of grass into an image that looks like the middle of the wild wood. In the real wild wood, she can make it look like the land before time. It’s a rare talent! The photoshoot with her has been one of the best photo experiences I’ve ever had. The pictures are in pride of place and keep amazing us! Heike is simply the best.


Heike took the most beautiful pictures of my daughter in the spring sunshine. We met in a park and Heike just let her play and be herself whilst taking the pictures. Her patience and gentle approach made my daughter feel totally at ease. The result is a collection of natural photographs that I will treasure for a very long time.


These photos are absolutely stunning - we are completely blown away by them. And what a quick turnaround as well, thank you so much for all your hard work!


Oh my goodness!!!! I love them so much! Thank you - they really are amazing ❤️❤️❤️


We had such a great time with Heike. On arrival at the playground my little one was quite moody. With her kind, caring and intuitive nature Heike immediately put her at ease and have her enjoy the session which resulted in the most beautiful pictures. I can't wait for summer to come to book Heike again for a shoot with both my girls. If you never had professional pictures done before (especially with little unpredictable people) and are unsure (like I was) I can only say give Heike a call. It is well worth it!


Oh my goodness they are amazing Heike!!! Thank you so very much, you are awesome!


I am writing to thank you for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. We are very happy with both the formal ceremony photography, as well as the more spontaneous group and party shots. We have a wonderful souvenir with everyone who attend on the day. The set of photos includes large group shots, the sunshine that graced us on the day, the confetti moment, and also lovely portraits of us, our friends and their kids. We couldn't wish for more! Many thanks.
