That's annoying. Google started rewriting SERP titles very aggressively during last year - see an explanation here, and (largely useless) docs from Google here.

Your title tag on the page is 

<title>Home-Lloyd Birch Property &amp; Landscape Photography</title>

so that *should* be good. You might want to remove the "Home-" from the beginning of it?

Otherwise I'd focus on doing other things to encourage Google's crawlers to recrawl the page and hopefully it will get it right on the second pass.

Couple of suggestions:

  • Find a way to add the same (or similar) text in an <h1> tag in the page itself? Perhaps a headline under the drone footage before the intro text? Google might be getting thrown off by there being no heading 1 tag on the homepage.
  • Get set up in Google Search Console if you haven't already – upload your sitemap, and submit the homepage URL for reindexing.

The drone footage looks awesome 🙂
