Full Description
  • I am a wedding, event and portrait photographer based in London & Essex. I live in Woodford, but work all over the UK & Europe. My reportage style is a blend of creative portraits and natural documentary photography. I tend to favour natural lighting, thrive off of snapping candid moments, and love working outside in either urban, rustic or rural locations. I aim to capture the magic you don't always get to see first-hand (because you're so busy entertaining your guests), and surprise you with it in your album later. Every client is unique, and I like to work with all sorts of different people. My clients are mostly couples who favour a relaxed documentary approach rather than posed shots. I also prefer to work in this way as I'm more likely to capture both intimate and entertaining moments throughout the day. If you like the sound of my approach, please get in touch!

FAQ
(10)
What is your most memorable wedding?
Shooting over 500 people at an epic Hindu & Christian ceremony across four days in the grounds of Oxford University.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Reportage, creative, candid, relaxed, honest.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Teaching myself from scratch & working my way up.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Create the day YOU want and don't give in to pressure from others!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Individual hand written comments on table place holders for each guest. It made everyone there feel special.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to get under the skin of what they're really looking for pre-wedding & will give as much help and guidance as they need in the run up. This ranges from recommending suppliers, to coaching them through nervousness about being in front of the camera, to sowing up a hole in a dress two minutes before the ceremony. Yes, it has happened! I just try to stay as human & accessible as possible for them throughout.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The couple cracking each other up. After all, that's one of main reason's we marry our partners right? Because we have fun with them. You have to capture the spark and chemistry on a wedding day. However that's my job, not theirs!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
My style is so reportage / documentary that people don't really ask me to take posed or specific images. It's actually the opposite of that- it's about capturing spontaneity. Lots of clients ask me to capture enjoyment, emotion and laughter, so thats what I aim for.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Wellies, white brollies, and a sense of humour!
Describe how you got into photography.
I loved it from a young age & then taught myself. Then I was lucky enough to work with some brilliant photographers who I've learnt bucket-loads from, and I've since been able to refine my personal style.
