- I'm so grateful to photograph weddings for a living because I get to capture people on one of the happiest days of their lives. I love taking the time to really get to know the couples that hire me - your trust in me helps me create beautiful, heartfelt images. On a wedding day I'm all smiles and treat everyone like friends. In the end, it's about you, not about me. I love photographing portraits and details, but what really matters is capturing your connection with the people who mean the most to you. I don't impose myself on your day; I want to photograph your wedding just the way it is. I call myself a documentary-style wedding photographer because I strive to create heartfelt images by being as unobtrusive as possible. I consider myself to be warm, approachable and easy-going. In my spare time, I love making pizzas, drinking coffee and playing video games. A website can only go so far, so if you'd like to see more wedding photos (or what I'm up to!) have a look at my Instagram.

What is your most memorable wedding?
There isn't one! Every wedding has something beautiful and unique that I take with me and remember years down the line.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, unobtrusive, creative, modern and clean.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My partner Eleanor! It's technically "just me", but she's always there to give me that little push when I need it the most.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't feel like you have to do something at your wedding just because everyone else has. It's your day, and there's no right or wrong.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Home-made honey jars as little gifts for all the guests.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We'll get together for a coffee and get to know each other and talk about your wedding day. If you decide to book me we'd sign a contract and meet again about one month or so before the wedding date. Here we'll confirm all the little details and talk about your day. After all the pictures are edited you can expect to receive them no later than 6 weeks after the wedding date. I'll be here every step along the way to help with any questions you might have.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The one you don't know I'm taking! :-)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Realising that your day will be just as beautiful as if it hadn't rained.
Describe how you got into photography.
It's a long story, and I'd love to tell it to you in person! :-)
