I am a quirky and creative wedding and family photographer, with a passion for love, emotion & people.
To me, photography is about seeing the real emotion of a moment and freezing it, to be seen and felt again, whenever, wherever, forever.
I see every couple, every family, every child, differently and I photograph them differently. I love the individuality of each shoot I work on, the relationships between families, couples, friends - it's flipping awesome and I love being there to see and to record for you to look back on.
My philosophy is not to merely to accept differences, quirks and anomalies, but to celebrate them.
I'd love to chat with you, so please drop me a line or send me an email.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
When you take a step back and watch, you see the most beautiful, tender moments that are otherwise missed. I call these 'in between' moments. The moments that string our lives together... not the dramatic 'I do' kiss or the teethy grin of the cutting of the cake, but the look back down the aisle as the bride approaches, the tear wiped away during the speeches... the rugby-esque stance of the bridesmaid at the bouquet toss......
When at an engagement shoot - I observe my clients around each other - how they naturally behave, touch, hug, kiss - that way, when the big day comes, the poses I ask for never feel forced or awkward, they are an exaggeration of how my couples naturally interact.
I notice all the shizzle that others miss, I photograph it and BOOM. It's yours to look at forever.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
I ask all my clients what they want the 'feel' of their photography to be - relaxed, vintage, festival, natural - these are all popular themes at the moment.
I ask what the most important aspect of their photography is - good views & dramatic backgrounds, emotion, formal shots - a few examples of what people value most.
I find out about my clients, their interests, hobbies, how they met etc. this gives me an insight into who they are so I can project that through photography.
What do you love most about your job?
This sounds so SO cheesy, but I love love. When I edit my photoshoots, my other half will often say 'you know you're grinning, don't you?' and it's true... I love being a spectator of people's love!
I always cry at weddings (subtly, don't worry...!) I just get swept up in it all & being a creative and emotional person enables me to focus on the beauty of each moment as it unfolds.
Honestly, I'm such a sucker for a romantic story & love helping my couples re-tell theirs.
I love meeting new people, I really am a people person & love learning about people, what they do & what inspires them. I've kept in touch with so many of the people I've taken photos of and many of my families come back and see me year on year to update their walls and albums.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I got my first camera when I was 7 from my Grandparents for Christmas. I used to save my pocket money for getting my films developed in Boots. (Thankfully, I've honed my skills since then and my finger no longer obstructs each image...)
I've never been one for office work, 9-5 jobs or years of study... in my late teens and early twenties I spent time travelling the world and working in ski resorts... when it came down to 'getting a proper job' I decided to take photography more seriously, a couple of qualifications later & I booked my first client - never looked back!
Why should our clients choose you?
