Davina Durward-Brown - Davina Paterson - Image Bliss Photography - Image Bliss Retouching

Hey, I’m Davina of Image Bliss Photography. A photographer and retoucher based in Tring, Hertfordshire. I have a long-standing love of photography, so I cover it all! Weddings, Newborns, Food, Lifestyle, Portrait, I’m not fussy! I love the editing side too and retouch, for other photographers.

My fondest childhood memories involve using my Dad’s Olympus Trip 35 and OM10. Every summer, on our holidays to Spain or Cornwall, I would find opportunities to capture a new memory.

In the late ’90’s, way back when it was all about film and dark rooms, I studied Art & design, photography and digital imaging. Things have changed, but its ok.. i’m keeping up! Initially, I worked as a production assistant and PA within a Photographers agency (CLM UK) and then moved on to become a digital retoucher, working with fashion and beauty photographers.

After spending 4 years in Abu Dhabi, where I had my little girl and worked with a friend as a specialist children and family portrait photographer, I returned to the UK in 2014 and started Image Bliss Photography in Surrey. I’m now settled in Tring with my husband and 2 happy little souls.

I’m passionate about charities such as Blood Wise, having lost my dear Dad and a gorgeous friend to Leukaemia… and more local, humanitarian aid charity People Not Borders.
