- I absolutely adore weddings. I am a huge romantic at heart and just love seeing people in love. My photography style is very relaxed, capturing the essence of your day perfectly. I am based in Berkshire but also cover weddings in neighbouring counties. I would love to hear all about your wedding plans, so feel free to get in touch for a chat.

What is your most memorable wedding?
My first wedding; no-one forgets their first!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, natural, fun, creative, adventurous
What about your business are you most proud of?
The kind words each of my Brides have had to say about their wedding photographs. It means the world to me to know that they have been happy with my work.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get to know your suppliers. If you get on with them, communication will be easier.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Personalised wedding converse worn by the Bride!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Upon enquiry, finding out what they are looking for. I like to meet in person if possible, to really get to know the couple, hear all about their plans and provide further examples of my work. Once chosen a £250 deposit secures their date. I stay in contact throughout the lead up to keep up to date with plans and answer any questions. If having an engagement shoot I like to do this around 2 months before the wedding date, with final plans confirmed and balance paid 6 weeks prior to the big day. I always aim to provide a sneak peek on social media within 24 hours, and final images ready within 8 weeks.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Laughing. I like happy people and want to capture the happiness of your day!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The Groom's bum! (He was wearing special wedding pants)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Wellies and and umbrella - dancing in the rain makes great fun images!
Describe how you got into photography.
Photographing my children, my friends, my travels. It naturally evolved into me taking the plunge and setting up my own business.
