I’ve always loved weddings and getting dressed up, ever since I was a bridesmaid for the first time at the age of 10 and got to wear a pretty dress like a princess (now hideously 80’s!). When I started working for a wedding and portrait studio in 2008 and assisted at my first wedding, I was hooked. I LOVED it. Everyone’s always so happy and dressed in gorgeous outfits, with gorgeous attention to detail in venue decorations. I’m like a kid in a sweet shop and can’t wait to photograph it all. I have a really natural, informal and personal approach to my work, and I love to tell a story! I especially love alternative weddings or anything a bit different. Why not do things your own way and in your own style?!
Something else I’m truly passionate about is women’s portraiture and giving women the gift of confidence, feeling beautiful and expressing themselves through my photography. I did a project in the second year of my degree in Commercial Photography, all about self esteem, body image and unrealistic images of women in the media… from then on I set it my mission to give women the gift of feeling beautiful and empowered; whether that’s to celebrate an occasion, help you on your journey of self discovery, or represent you and your brand.
Customer service and client experience is something that is really important me, and I am very good at getting my clients to relax and feel comfortable in front of my camera. All our hard work is thankfully paying off, because I have been lucky enough to be shortlisted for two years running as Best Wedding Photographer in London and the South East in the Wedding Industry Awards, and have also won awards for my images from the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.
I’m inspired by vintage, boho, retro and ethnic styles, whether that’s a wedding, clothing or home decor. You will probably find me glued to Pinterest daydreaming over mood boards! But if I do manage to drag myself away from my computer and get out and about, I love a stroll in the evening sunshine, a country pub and some yoga (to ease my sore muscles from the heavy camera gear!).
I love how I can capture a moment in time for people and love seeing and hearing about what joy my photography brings.
