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 and creative agencies.

I have fond childhood memories picking up 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 moving on to 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 worked as a 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. I also raised over £3000 for the NHS during the COVID lockdown by riding my bike around my town and taking doorstep portraits which you can see on my blog.
