I like to do things a little differently and love creative, fun, imaginative, stylish couples (just like you, yep you!) Documentary wedding photography is my thing, I’m not interested in overly formal and stuffy photographs.
Whether you’re eloping in the Swiss mountains, celebrating the day in a London pub or having a giant knees-up with your nearest and dearest in a French Chateau, my style of documentary wedding photography will grab the honest and real little moments that make the day so unforgettable. I’m not there to interfere with the day and force you into unnatural, awkwardly posed shots destined to gather dust in your loft forever more, but instead I let the day unfold around me and capture the magic as it happens. When you look back at your gallery in years to come, I want to take you right back to that very moment, and remind you exactly what you felt when you were there – the goose bumps on your arm, the short intake of breath you’d just experienced, the gentle butterflies in your stomach. As the day evolves, so too does your story, and I weave all of these smaller beautiful moments into an honest and atmospheric telling of your unique day.
I approach family photography the same way. It’s all about that irreplaceable connection, and all the ways you show it that you don’t even know – that’s what I’m here to immortalise for you. My kind of people are those who place more importance on the people around them and the experience they’re having than the stuff they might acquire.
Trends are temporary, but real, honest, emotional stories of love and life – they’re here forever.

If you are planning an elopement - exciting!! I'd love to be involved. Whatever you have planned, I'll be there to capture it all. Send me an email for special elopement prices.
Lets go on an adventure! Or, equally good: we can hang out at your favourite spot or even in your home. These shoots are not just for the engaged though. Perhaps you just fancy some photos of yourself for your website or of you and your loved one. Maybe you are visiting Switzerland on holiday or your honeymoon and want some epic photographs to remember the trip.
Family shoots are brilliant things. Whether you’re celebrating a special anniversary or birthday, or just want to get some beautiful photos done before your kids are all grown-up, they’re a fun day/afternoon/hour out that everyone always enjoys. I’ll simply ask you to play, interact and behave exactly as you always do with each other. There’s no need to dress up or force the kids to wear their best outfits. Just be yourselves. You are perfect as you are.
Great, Me either!!
Relaxed, informal, natural and candid photographs are at the heart of my wedding photography. Its all about capturing the in-between moments, fleeting glances and atmosphere that make love and life so great.
I don’t interfere too much with what’s going on at weddings. Instead, focusing on capturing all the crazy magic that is unfolding around you naturally.
Of course we will do some portraits of the two of you and some group photos (my Mum would want them, I'm guessing yours does too!) but in a natural and unobtrusive way.
I promise you, you are not alone, that is a very normal feeling I'm here to help.
So many of my couples say they don't like having their photos taken or are nervous beforehand. It is my job to put you at ease and to make you feel comfortable.
Putting people at ease and hopefully getting them to forget that they are being photographed at all is my main goal.
If you are still nervous or worried it can help to have a couple/engagement shoot beforehand to practice.
ITs all about the atmosphere!
My couples aren’t focused on having “The Best Day Of Their Life” but instead want to enjoy their day in their own way. Whether that is celebrating with their nearest and dearest or eloping on their own.
They don’t feel the pressure of having a super formal, highly stressful day, but instead want the kind of day that focuses on having a good time with great company, a great party, and great food.
They don’t worry too much about what their hair looks like and don’t mind if they get a bit messy. As long as they are having a good time.
Our wedding photographs are beyond stunning! They capture the day perfectly and I can't help but get warm, happy thoughts each time I look at them. Neither of us normally feel particularly comfortable in front of the camera yet somehow you made us and our guests feel completely at ease, resulting in wonderful, natural pics. Some of my favourites are ones when we didn't even know you were taking!
