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.
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.
As a documentary wedding photographer my main focus is to blend in and capture the events that are unfolding on the day. It’s so important for me to be aware of what is going on, who is talking to who and where the best reactions are going to come from, so I don’t miss the momentary laughter, smiles and tears that can disappear within seconds.
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!
These are the things that make me ME…
– My lovely Fiance, Mike, who is an awesome cook so I eat very well (morning, noon and night)
– Bonnie our beautiful beagle, we rescued her at just 5 months old.
-Food, any food! My favourite is Asian cuisine. YUM!
-Being creative! I studied fine art at college & textile design at University so have a very creative background.
-Art & photography. I love old photos and unique pieces of art (even if I have no space left on the walls for it all)
-Antiques, I’m so interested in objects that have a story and have become worn over time.
– Driving around on hot summers days in my little classic car with Mike & the Bon. My perfect weekend!
-& lets not forget that important glass of red wine
Time for tea and a chat! I would be happy to come to you to talk through the moments you want to capture.
