Full Description
I have a love for rolling tides, foggy mornings, sad playlists, quiet moments, adventuring with no sense of direction, windswept hair, cosy blankets, lace dresses, and real moments. Natural and informal is my kind of thing, not awkward, staged and stuffy. I live for documenting real, authentic moments; the kind you will look back on for years and years to come! In terms of packages, I offer totally tailored wedding packages, elopement and destination wedding coverage, and plenty of lifestyle packages. No two weddings are the same, so I decided to be a little different in that I don’t have a set price list and instead tailor everything to you! Even if my lifestyle sessions don’t quite work for you, I can always create something bespoke! I am super relaxed, and, more often than not, I get asked if I am actually a friend of my couples! Usually, I am not, although let's be real, I like to be more than just a wedding photographer, so we will probably end up becoming friends! I love to get involved with weddings, and I promise to throw myself fully into your wedding. I am the kind of photographer you can text if you're struggling with decor ideas, or need a plus one for your suit/dress/outfit fitting, and I even make a great dance partner when your afterparty is in full swing! (I can’t comment on quite how good my dancing will be though!) If you had to describe me, I would say I am like a chameleon... Why? Well, I’m 5ft tall and love to blend into my surroundings! This means I can notice and document moments that would've otherwise gone unseen, but at the same time, I can still organise a big wedding party for those formal photos!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

timeless, intimate, alternative, laid-back, story-telling

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

My number 1 tip is definitely to ask your photographer with anything you might get stuck with! We are a wealth of help for our couples, from helping to pick a good ceremony time, to recommending vendors, to being on hand for any questions you might have - so always feel free to ask the question. No question is ever silly!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

My favourite personal touch so far has been the bride's ten year old son writing his extremely emotional and hilarious speech on a capri-sun box - because 'improvise, adapt, overcome!'

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to take a super personal process with my couples, because I know wedding planning can be super daunting! The first thing I do after your initial email, is to arrange a phone call so that we can have a chat. Who doesn't love a good natter?! It's a great opportunity to find out all about your plans, so that I can tailor and recommend some pricing and coverage types to you. I then send over everything you need to book, and the next step is to arrange meeting up for a chat over some tea and cake. I always want to be on hand, so communication is a big part of everything I do!

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

I always think every couple should take a photo with their family. Things change so quickly, from children growing up to losing loved ones, as much as family portraits can seem a bit 'boring' they are so important. They're the kind of photos you'll hand down for future generations.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

For a rainy day wedding, I have two words: embrace it! Rain on your wedding day is said to be good luck. My parents got married on the rainiest of days, with a photographer who threatened not to turn up if it rained. It rained. He was late. Luckily, they've been together for years, so there is definitely something to be said for rainy weddings! You can't change the weather, but you can have the best time in it no matter what. So let's just go for it!

Describe how you got into photography.

I shot my first wedding when I was just 16 years old for a college friend's cousin. Prior to that, I had loved taking photos as references to draw from, but soon my love for photography overtook that for drawing. It was a creative escape for me. But soon it held it's own prevalence. When I realised the power photos hold, it became so important to me to document everything. Those I loved. My pets. My hobbies. My life became a scrapbook of photographs. Physical digital records of my memories. When I began to lose those I loved, the importance of photography became ever more important to me. I thought, if I could document the things that are important to other people, and really immerse myself into their lives, taking photos of moments otherwise gone unseen, I would always be giving something so special to people. Photographs increase in value as they age, and that's so wonderful to me.
