Weddings


If someone asked me to define my job, I would say it's a blessing; photographing some of the most intimate and significant times in my clients' lives is the best and most fulfilling work I could ask for....

You are looking for a photographer who will be excited about your wedding day and every last intricate detail or personal touch.  You are probably a creative person and crave lots of DIY details to stamp your own mark on your day.  your photographer will be someone who will see the beauty in your friends and family. Someone who will be driven by the raw emotion of two people in love, capturing their togetherness, the people that they are and the people that they are surrounded by.

When I pick up my camera at a wedding, I am not necessarily thinking about what 'I' can create, it's more about what is unfolding right in front of me.  All you need to do is make some memories together & I  will stand back to observe, documenting each & every significant detail of your wedding day.  

I can't promise I won't cry a little bit, but we definitely will laugh a LOT.  When the dress is dry cleaned & safely tucked away & the honeymoon has been & gone, I hope that for years to come you will be able to think back to your day & remember that it was ......nothing less than beautiful.

E-Shoot

E-Shoot


The 'Falling In Love' E-Shoot

Whether you are planning a romantic proposal and need a photographer to be on hand to capture it, you want a luxury e-shoot to show off your new sparkly ring or you just want to iron out some nerves before your big day and get in some practice then please do get in touch to discuss what  you are looking for...

E-shoots are normally location shoot; either at a location that has sentimental value to you as a couple (perhaps 'where' you got engaged) or your chosen wedding venue or perhaps you want to choose a location that is quite different or alternative to your wedding venue.  If you are having a quaint country wedding, maybe your location for your e-shoot would be somewhere more urban or by the sea!

I believe that the warm up shoot is an essential part of the process of photographing your wedding. my role, other than to capture your day as it unfolds, is to ensure that you are relaxed and feeling confident and beautiful in front of my lens.  By the time the wedding comes around, you will feel nothing but excitement for the beautiful photos that you are going to have to remember the best day ever!

By the time you have finished your warm up shoot, you will feel confident and happy in front of the camera, ready for your incredible day!!

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING ME FOR YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY, ALL MY WEDDING PACKAGES INCLUDE A COMPLIMENTARY 1 HOUR E-SHOOT, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS A WEDDING WARM UP SHOOT OR PRE SHOOT

If you are newly engaged and wish to book an Engagement Session then please contact me via the enquiry form or by email - sessions normally 1-3 hours and you can choose from a number of products to display your images.   Sessions start from £250.

LOVE IS BEAUTIFUL

Throughout my career,  I have been blessed to be able to work with some amazing couples.  This collection of images shows the style of my photography. Like so many photographers I am self taught; my love for photography came a long time before I began photographing weddings.

I photograph what I 'feel' and would describe my work as emotive and real.
