Full Description
I love telling stories through photographs. Being a bit of a romantic, a fan of weddings and just curious about people, I love that I can bring this altogether through photography. Your wedding is a personal unique love story. Once the wedding day is passed and the dress is packed away, your photographs will play an important part of keeping your wedding memories alive. Your wedding album is a treasured keepsake for you, your children and your grandchildren. From your engagement to your first born, providing photographs that tell your personal story is my true love. If you are looking for someone who shares your wedding excitement, then you are looking in the right place. I love the thoughtful detail that goes into weddings, from the exchange of pre-wedding gifts to the quirky table names to the stunning decor. It is all part of what makes your day unique to you. Becoming a parent really sparked my interest in photography. I had a desire to capture all those wonderful moments of childhood, which can quickly become forgotten as time passes. And there was no denying that I had a magnet-like ability to attract and entertain children (long before I had any children of my own), which has proven to be a valuable characteristic when trying to bring the best out of people in front of the camera. And it is here where my journey into photography began. I live in Essex and graduated from the London College of Fashion many moons ago. I work predominately in Essex, London, Kent and Sussex, but travel further afield too. In was a regional finalist for 2018 and 2016 The Wedding Industry Awards Photographer of the Year. In 2013, I was thrilled to be a finalist for both 2013 Havering Business Awards New Business of the Year and 2013 Docklands Business Club & East London New Business of the Year. In case it reassures you to know, I am a member of the Guild of Photographers and a member of the British Association of Professional Child Photographers.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Now that is a hard question. I don't think I could give one memorable wedding. I have a lot of great memories from different weddings...from the alpacas, from the groomsman who split his trousers on the dance floor and the bestmen who sang their speech to the theme tune of the Fresh Prince of Belair to the mothers and fathers who cried whilst holding their daughters, to the grooms that didn't make it through their speeches without crying. That is just a few. I can definitely tell you more over a cup of tea and biscuit!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, fun, candid, emotive, vibrant

What about your business are you most proud of?

Quite possibly, the thing I am most proud of is that I had the guts to start my wedding photography business in the first place. I had a dream and decided that I didn't want it to stay as a dream. I didn't want to spend my life wondering "What if...". The only way to beat that is to jump in and do it!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Whether you plan your wedding on post-it notes or in an Excel spreadsheet, what stands out the most for me, is when couples do what is personal to them. They throw out the need to meet others expectations. They know what they love and what they don't and design their whole wedding around that. I adore it. They truly make the best wedding days as people really are at their happiest.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

My favourite photo is when couples see each other for the first time. In that moment of that first look, suddenly if feels as though no one else is in the room. It's a beautiful moment, and often once in a lifetime too.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Bride, groom and a giraffe! It was pretty cool!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas and wellies! Don't let the rain spoil your day.

Describe how you got into photography.

Becoming a parent really sparked my interest in photography. I had a desire to capture all those wonderful moments of childhood, which can quickly become forgotten as time passes. And there was no denying that I had a magnet-like ability to entertain children (long before I had any children of my own), which has proven to be a valuable characteristic when trying to bring the best out of people in front of the camera. And it is here where my journey into photography began. My motivation to capture memories on film actually roots back much further. It was sparked by my Grandmother and the loss I felt during childhood after she passed.
