Full Description
If you were to ask me what I thought was the most important thing in life, my answer would be empathy and relationships. From my unusual upbringing, family example, my very first boss and working as a medical photographer - these were all influential experiences where I learned my most valuable professional skill as a wedding photographer and that is forming genuine relationships and having great empathy for people. My philosophy and style of photography is fresh and relaxed and to keep things simple - with the main objective, to tell your story as it unfolds and to leave you with amazing memories from your day. To tell your unique story in a beautiful, creative, passionate, and artistic way. Simply documenting real life moments as they happen and genuinely taking the time to truly get to know each couple that I get the opportunity to work with. That is why I am always confident that I will capture the moments that truly matter the most. And the most beautiful thing at the end of a wedding is being able to pass all your wonderful moments back to you so both of you can re-live your day all over again and again and again - and leaving behind your legacy for generations to come - dramatic I know - but true! On another note, for those of you who tread the vegan road - you've happened upon a kindred soul xxx

From the moment I arrived I just knew our day was going to be perfect! Everything just felt so right. The venue team were incredible, Sue & Matt were so calm and friendly and had me at ease immediately. Our day flew by and we wish it didn’t have to end. Looking back through our photos gets me every time, the happiness and joy of our day is captured beautifully, I can’t stop looking through them! I’m so grateful to Sue, she’s provided a wonderful service with photos we can cherish for our lifetime together. She snapped brilliant moments that would otherwise be a forgotten memory and there is no price tag for that! From Emily & Jay, thank you always!

SWPP Wedding & Portrait Photographers

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding is memorable, every one unique - no person, relationship, vision or wedding day is alike.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Genuine // Devoted // Artistic // Photojournalistic // Inspired

What about your business are you most proud of?

Being totally engaged in each moment and staying grateful is what drives my soul and keeps my photographs talking - I love sharing the world through my eyes, constantly learning and capturing love stories.

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

Be super organised and allow much more time than you think you need throughout every stage of your day and if you can't, that's not a problem - I'm there to be the eyes!

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

The sweetest thing I've read about was when a bride had all married couples dancing to a slow song and the DJ said, “anyone married less than 5 years please exit the dance floor”, then they would continue dancing... “anyone married less than 10 years please exit the dance floor”, then continued dancing until there was one couple left. I think the couple that was left was married 50+ years and the bride ended up giving her bouquet to them. I thought that was a very sweet way of seeing how happy the older married couple was to be noticed in that way.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Couples in crazy-love are the best! I want to capture real, authentic love, your tenderness together, the feels, the emotion, and the happiness that shines through everyone on a wedding day - in a relaxed, calm & gentle unobtrusive way.

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

A beautifully lit & artistically styled group family portrait to hold dear for generations to come.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

The most original photos are the ones I dream up and offer to my couples.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

I always have rainy-day ideas and they can be great fun - of course, there's the umbrella photo but I love the dapper groom lifting his jacket over his brides head & shoulders and protecting her - so romantic x

Describe how you got into photography.

My father photographed & filmed every opportunity he had until his amazing life was so sadly cut short. It was in my blood from then on and after Art College, I went on to Trent Poly and left 3 years later with a BA (Hons) in Photography.
