A real romantic, plant fiend, and, in case you hadn’t guessed, just the person to photograph your most important moments. I seek beauty in the shadows as well as the light and find perfection in the imperfect. For me, it’s all about authenticity, and giving you the real and emotional rendition of your wedding day, rather than a clipped, truncated highlights reel. From belly laughs to hand holds and the way the fabric of your skirt just catches the light – that sets my soul on fire. I love to work with couples who are relaxed, lighthearted, imaginative and fun.
Whether you are looking for wedding photography in Basel, someone to capture your elopement in the mountains or some family moments in your back garden. I like to capture the events around me as they unfold. I’ll never ask you to pose or do anything that doesn’t feel natural to you. All I’ll ask you to do is be yourselves, and I’ve got a knack for putting people at ease (especially those who don’t like having their picture taken!)
I’m also a teeny tiny bit adventurous. If you’re game, we’ll go for a wander through the mountains and see what we can see. I think there’s a kind of magic in the unexpected and some of my favourite work has come from simply roaming through the wild and allowing nature to show off for us.
I'm originally from Cambridge in the UK but have been living in Basel for nearly 5 years. Living here makes me uniquely placed to capture weddings and elopements in the Swiss mountains. There’s something absurdly gorgeous about photographing a freshly married couple amidst the grandeur of an awe-inspiring mountain range. It just never gets old. Don't get me wrong though, I love a chic city wedding just as much!
I’m also a calm, relaxed, reliable sort of person to have around on a wedding day. I’m very, very experienced and know exactly where to be and when. I think to be truly “good” at something you need two things: a genuine passion for it, and a long list of happy clients. I think I have both.
When I’m not behind the lens, I can be found tending to my growing plant collection (I’ve transformed our home into something of a botanical wonderland) and exploring the beautiful countryside with my boyfriend John. We try to get out of the city at weekends to breathe some of that Grade A Swiss mountain air and, in the summer, you can swim down the Rhine, followed by beers on the bankside. With a vibrant art scene and amazing food options, I just can’t recommend it enough as a place to live.

This is John, I know you can't see his face but trust me its lovely.
A few random facts:
I notice the little things and take pleasure in them all.
Always try to make friends with dogs (and cats) that I spot in the street (unfortunatley cats ALWAYS like John more!)
I literally stop and smell roses.
I’m weirdly pretty good at finding four leaf clovers.
Some of my favourite photographers (although this list changes almost daily and I'm sure I've forgotten loads!):
DON MCCULLIN // Greg Williams // Francesca Woodman // Wolfgang Tillmans // Adreas Gursky // Vivian Maier // Corinne Day // Martin Parr // Tony Ray Jones // Sally Mann
I love cooking, but do not like the daily ‘what shall we have for tea’ decision!
I really miss London pubs.
And tea, I miss big boxes of tea! The tiny packs they have here are just not enough!
I’ve been a photographer for over a decade.
Before I was a wedding photographer in Basel, I was a photographer for The Department of Chemistry at The University of Cambridge - slightly different setting (!) but still photographing people and their interesting stories.
The first wedding I photographed was for my Dad's boss (terrifying!) I'm pleased to say it went well.
Everything else has rolled on from there.
I've photographed over 100 weddings all over Europe in pretty much every type of venue you could imagine.
My work’s been splashed across:

She made us feel so relaxed!
We were so impressed with the quality of photos that Caroline took at our wedding, she really captured the spirit of the day and got stuck in with all the action without being obtrusive. Caroline worked with us in a really lovely way and I would certainly recommend her services to anyone needing a wedding or event photographer. She made us, our friends and family feel incredibly relaxed.
