As with most arty/creative types, I’ve been into photography since I was very little and was gifted my first camera at the age of 6 and used it to mainly take photos of my dog (little has changed there) and my Sylvanian Families. A brief hop and a skip through college, then University and I graduated in London with a degree in Photography. I worked on film sets and TV commercials taking photos for a while and then a school friend asked me to photograph her wedding and I was hooked from then on in!
Again, it starts from a young age when various family members would send me postcards from beautiful places and I poured over family photo albums. I loved looking at those beautiful images and imagining what it was like in real life. I’d spend hours visualizing how the day went, imaging the sights and sounds such as the bells and laughter. I was always drawn to it… so here I am (many) years later and firmly believing I was destined to do this because that is exactly how I want others to feel looking at their own photos – that warm, fuzzy, happy feeling.
Photography is something I am so passionate about and I’m at my happiest with a camera in hand. So combining my love of photography and creating memories for others, I really do feel so absolutely privileged to play a part in the most important day in a couple’s life together and meeting all the people with them on the day.
I adore dogs. I have a gorgeous and very energetic Brittany Spaniel called Louis.
I’m a history geek. Wind down time for me is exploring some ancient building or watching something on the history channel!
My favourite movie is Gladiator.
I did one of those Meyers Briggs personality tests years ago and I’m an INFP. This type value authenticity, empathy, and harmony – things I absolutely try to use in my style of photography and how I work.
Coffee all the way!
I love quirky things and places, such as little shops hidden down old rambling streets full of treasures.
I’ve lived all over the South of England – Bucks, Berks, Surrey, London, Devon and Gloucestershire.
I love the seaside in winter. I particularly love watching waves crashing onto the rocks on a stormy day.
I love a good quote!
I honestly love it when previous couples send me photos of their images framed and hanging on their walls!
