- Based near Brighton in the UK, I take bookings from anywhere on the 3rd rock from the Sun. I live life to the full, nurturing my three boys in the ways of life. I strive to make my client's chilled and relaxed, it makes things so much easier for all of us. Your partner/parents/kids/pets will love me, I promise. I've a pretty good sense of humour and I work like a ninja. I think I have one of the coolest jobs going and I get to wear a camera belt too! I want to capture as much as I can in my lifetime. From birth to death and everything in between, meeting new people along the way, hopefully learning a little bit about everything. Heading off on unknown adventures with my camera, sharing stories with old/new friends around a camp fire under a starry night are a couple of my passions. Tell me yours. Love is THE most important thing in my world .. and Percy Pigs! I'd like you to think of me as your Photographic Doula, gentle, kind, 10 years of experience and an expert in pretty much all photography areas. YOU You're someone who’s looking for a photographer to capture your journey or life story as you want it to be told You know it’s an important, yet really hard decision to make as it’s a minefield, even when someone has recommended a photographer You’re looking for a photographer to make you feel relaxed and at ease You want someone who can blend in You want someone who you can connect with You want someone you can have a laugh with and be yourself with You want someone who can make you, your partner, guests and kids just be themselves You don’t necessarily want posed photos but you might want a few. That’s cool You might not think you’re brave enough to come out in the rain when the sun’s gone down to try out a shot, but you just might as you know the end result is going to be awesome Most importantly, you want an amazing set of images to get emotional over every time you look at them If this sounds like you, I’d love to work with you!

What is your most memorable wedding?
A Wedstival in a field with a lake and tipis! We stayed on site, as the couple had booked my vintage caravan photo booth, and everyone (including my team!) ended up drinking far too much and dancing like crazy all night. There were lots of sore heads in the morning. The dance floor photos were pretty epic though!

Photography is my passion AND I get to wear a cool camera belt!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't stress. You love each other. Go with what YOU want not to satisfy the masses x
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A photo table with passed relatives ... and their favourite drink in front of each photo <3
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We email. We chat. We might meet at the pub and/or the venue. I take some photos to make you relax and not stress about posing. You book me. I turn up at your wedding and we have fun etc. etc etc.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A full on, middle on the dance floor, open mouthed singing shot with all your friends and family around you.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Under the table at a Danish wedding! Guests can initiate impromptu toasts, speeches, kissing and forming queues to kiss the bride/groom.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A brolly! I have only had (and this is true as I type this!) one rainy wedding in 10 years. We can't stop the weather but we will work around it.
Describe how you got into photography.
My dad was a photographer and he double booked a wedding and said they 'just' wanted a group shot and reportage images. I was soooooo scared but did it and the couple were delighted. Within 2 years I worked hard learning how to use my camera properly, switched to digital and then gave up my proper job (an Account Manager for a marketing agency). I got my first booking 10 years ago and haven't looked back since. I LOVE MY JOB lol
