I am a photographer with a real passion for storytelling. I often describe myself as a “documentary photographer” which put simply means I love using natural light in an unstructured way, which not only creates beautifully soft images but keeps every wedding uncomplicated and relaxed. This approach lets me photograph real moments and real emotion. I first got excited about photography when I was about 9 years old, exploring in a loft I found an old suitcase full of photos that belonged to my Nan. There were hundreds of old photos, some familiar faces and others I never had the chance to meet, but every image had a story and I wanted to know about all of them. Ever since then I have been obsessed with the creativity of photography. The most important part of my job is to capture the images that portray you and your loved one as naturally as possible, telling the story of your wedding day and the individual personalities within it. I understand that having your photo taken can feel sometimes feel daunting, which is why I work in such a natural way. I don’t do any forced posing and definitely no ‘look and smile’ shots, I want the moments that I capture to have happened organically. Every shot should show the real you. The importance of photography is far greater than many of us think. It is one of the best ways to hold on to the important and significant times and to trigger our memories and emotion. I love being able to capture these moments in people’s lives and give them something that will truly last a lifetime. Every wedding and session is different, which makes my job so exciting. My creativity and skill is always being challenged, which helps me continue to develop and evolve as a photographer. I really do love my job!
