About Us

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website. Shots of Inspiration is run by a Husband and Wife team, Liza and Ian, who split their time between Exmouth and Truro and live with Baxter their Jack Russell and four rabbits, Simba, Jimmy, Cadbury and Stewie. Being based in both Exmouth and Truro, they are able to cover Weddings across both Cornwall and Devon. They have even been known to stray a little further afield to cover a Wedding in Gloucestershire. The third member of the Shots team is Eggbert, a brightly coloured parrot puppet. Eggbert is used to direct the attention of small children to the camera while photographs are being taken. We have found that Eggbert is especially helpful when working with children who have additional needs.

At Shots of Inspiration our experience has shown that each couple is unique. Therefore we do not offer fixed packages; instead we provide bespoke Wedding Photography Packages at an affordable price to give you professional images of your wedding whatever your budget. Please visit our gallery pages to get an indication of the bespoke packages that we have put together for some of our couples. We are a happy to cover all the memories of your day from the Bride and or Groom getting ready up to the first dance and beyond. Our products range from a USB stick of your images in a presentation box to prints, handmade albums, canvases, DVDs and storybooks. We are not tied to any particular suppliers and can therefore source products to exactly match your requirements.

Liza Lancaster-Watts

Liza has been interested in photography for as long as she can remember and was given her first camera when she was five. She is highly organised and this ensures that your Wedding Photography will go smoothly with the least disruption. Her unflappable nature means that she is level head in a crisis and it would not be unusual to find her sewing a Bridesmaid into her dress moments before leaving for the Church or showing the Groom how to tie a cravat. Her approachable style will put you at ease, allowing you to ask any questions throughout the process from booking your Wedding Photography to the day itself.

Ian Lancaster-Watts

Ian has been taking photographs for the last 50 years and his first proper camera was an Olympus OM2n. Although most of Ian's professional work these days is done in a digital format, he likes to shoot with film in his spare time. Ian also likes to restore film cameras and his collection is rapidly growing, so much so, that Liza dreads the delivery man calling! Ian’s creative eye ensures that when capturing those special moments on your Wedding Day you always end up with the beautiful images you wanted and more. Ian's friendly nature ensures that you and your guests feel relaxed allowing you to enjoy the experience. He is also an expert at tying cravats, fixing button holes and attaching ribbon to Wedding cars.
