I’m not just a wedding photographer - I’m a wedding storyteller. I believe in capturing the real, genuine moments and emotions that decorate your wedding day, without the awkward posing! I’m constantly looking for ways to capture that perfect moment, rather than just the perfect photograph. Those genuine human interactions that cannot be staged or faked - the warm smiles, the kisses, the laughs, and those unique expressions - they require a photographer skilled at anticipating all of these perfect, fleeting moments and capturing them in print. When you look back on these, you don’t just see a picture of people smiling, you see warm human interaction, full of heart, genuine emotion and soul. I am pleased to provide half day and full day packages, with or without a storybook album and I offer a beautiful wooden print box with glass USB on all packages! If you don't see something that will fit your day, I would be delighted to offer a more bespoke solution.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Documentary, Storytelling, Creative, Modern, Authentic.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My couples always score me highly in both the quality of my work and the level of service I offer. I'm proud to say that following your wedding, you're more likely to be a friend than a client.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Focus on the 'human' element; always meet with your suppliers in person and get a feel for who they are as people before booking.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Cake and coffee is usually a great way to kick things off, with an informal, obligation-free chat to discuss your plans!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The confetti shot, captured as naturally as possible to reflect your first moments as husband and wife with your most special people around you.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace the rain! We live in Scotland and rain is part of our everyday lives - it doesn't matter when your wedding takes place, the risk of rain is generally quite high so it's best to rock those bridal umbrellas and embrace it for some dramatic outdoor photographs!
Describe how you got into photography.
Photography has been a passion since my childhood - I love the challenge of telling a visual story through my images and how each one is unique.
