Something about me

'You’ve been an absolute legend from day one. Louise and I are so delighted you agreed to document our wedding day.

We really appreciate the hard work you put into both the wedding day and the album.

You've been delightful. We can't thank you enough.'

Hello!

I am a creative reportage photographer based in Surrey, and my style is relaxed heartfelt and unobtrusive. I am really passionate about great wedding photography, and my wonderful couples are typically relaxed and fun and nearly always as enthusiastic about their photography as I am.

I have been a professional photographer for over 10 years, so whether you book me to photograph your wedding day, another special occasion, or precious family memories, you can be sure I'll bring all my years of knowledge and expertise. There really is no substitute for experience.

When it comes to weddings, I love all the pretty, but I'm essentially interested in capturing the emotions of the day. I am genuinely interested in each couple's story, and want to record for them not just the big moments, but candid little moments with reactions and surprises, tears of happiness and joy.

The Winding Road That Brought Me To Photography

I originally trained in London as a nurse. It was hands on from day one, and a brilliant foundation for dealing with any situation. Later, fueled by my mother's tales of East End midwifery (real 'Call The Midwife' stuff), I became a midwife.  For nearly a decade I delivered care to women in the community and hospital settings, giving support to women and their families going through challenging and life changing times. 

In this time I met and married my husband and had babies of my own. I rekindled an early love of photography and this turned into a fledgling family photography business. 

Eventually I photographed my first wedding, and found the experience both exciting and hugely enjoyable. From there referrals came by word of mouth, and I've never looked back.

Success

My editorial and real weddings have frequently been featured on wedding blogs such as Rock My Wedding and Love My Dress, as well as featured in You And Your Wedding Magazine, Wedding Magazine and Wedding Ideas Magazine.

I have twice been shortlisted for best UK wedding photographer in the UK Wedding Awards (2016,2017), and have worked with British bridal designers such as Suzanne Neville on numerous occasions. I also have strong links with top Surrey bridal boutique Miss Bush, having collaborated on several projects over the years.

The real measure of my success however, is not industry recognition, it's happy clients. I'm proud to share their feedback with you and you can read this on my Testimonials page.

The Personal Stuff

I also believe it’s really important to shoot for yourself on a daily basis. From everyday shots of my kids growing up, to documenting my grandmother’s final days, I know no other way that tells their stories with such power and emotion.  I am essentially most interested in people and their emotional journey through life.

I am an animal and nature lover, and we have ducks, chickens, and 4 utterly ravishing but rather high maintenance Siamese cats!  

Please feel free to follow me on social media and do get in touch if you'd like to see if I'm available for your special event.
