When planning my own wedding, I wanted to be photographed looking like the best version of myself- but in a natural way.

 

I didn't want to be photoshopped beyond all recognition. But I wanted to look beautiful.

 

I wanted photographs of the details I had spent months planning- personal details that reflected my husband and I.

 

I wanted pretty, happy, relaxed portraits of my husband and I.

 

I wanted a few traditional group shots, but I didn't want the day taken up with masses of staged, artificial posing.

 

I wanted a photographer who I felt comfortable around.

 

 

 

 

I wanted to cry with happiness when I saw my wedding photographs.

a little more...

I see beauty everywhere, in everyone. I am constantly with my camera in my hand, seeking to capture all of the beauty and inspiration around me. I love to travel (I will happily travel to your wedding, wherever it is in the world) - new places excite and inspire me.

 

My heart sings for film photography! Its luminosity, its radiance, its history, its relationship with the light and its power to flatter and transform a subject. Film creates precious, timeless, atmospheric images. I collect film cameras and have around 14 so far.

 

When not behind my camera or travelling I love coffeeshops, bookshops, visiting exhibitions and galleries, horseriding, pretty vintage dresses, spa days and yoga.

 

I am a complete foodie and love eating out- my happy place is being in a great restaurant with good company and good conversation. Though most of the time, the thing I enjoy most is life at home in the tranquil, pretty Cotswolds, with our two baby daughters and our ultra-sweet bunny named Barney.

 

 

I finished my photography degree course at The University of Westminster in London two years before I got married, but had not contemplated wedding photography as my career path. The search for my perfect wedding photographer convinced me that I had found my true calling. I use film and digital techniques, with sound knowledge of light, to capture you and your wedding beautifully.

 

If you are searching for the same qualities in a photographer that I was, then email me . I would love to be your photographer- from capturing your big day, or your growing family. I want to tell your story.
