If you’ve landed on this page then congratulations on your engagement! I’m a total romantic at heart and never turn down an opportunity to hear a good love story, so I absolutely can’t wait to hear yours. But first, there’s a reason you’re here, and that’s to discuss wedding photography, right? Well you’re in the right place; come on in you two, pour a drink and make yourselves comfy…
My role is much more than a photographer; you’ve found your lobster and I’m here to help you capture memories through images that will last a lifetime. The kind of images that you will want to display proudly all over your home together. I know how it feels to plan your special day; the excitment of finding the perfect location. The hidden folder of inspiration for your wedding attire you’re desperately trying to hide from your other half. The late night wedding admin in front of the telly and the last minute vow writing the night before because, honestly, thats the absolute best time to write them. I want to highlight all those beautiful details that make your wedding day truly unique. To remind you how you both felt when you looked into each other’s eyes and said “I do”. Let’s work together to document you taking the next step in your relationship in the best – and most beautiful – light. Are you ready?
LET’S TELL THE WORLD YOUR
Growing up on the stage – theatre, singing, a drummer in a rock band (true story) – storytelling is in my blood and heavily influences how I shoot. From gorgeous wide shots of decadent interiors to set the scene right through to the close up detail shots of lovingly hand-written typography, my goal is to curate a selection of images that need no words to explain them. Whether you have 200 guests or its just the two of you, let’s tell the world your love story in the most beautiful way I know how.
Having started my photography career over a decade ago in the basement burlesque clubs of Soho, I have plenty of experience working in atmospheric (dark) venues as well as in glorious natural light, so whatever your wedding location wants to throw at me, I can handle it. My years of experience photographing anywhere and everywhere means I’m ready for anything; nothing phases me, and yet every time I shoot I feel the same ignition of passion and excitement I did the first time I took a photograph.
As for retouching, did you know I’m an ambassador for both Adobe and Wacom? Thats right, having spent most of the past decade delivering lectures, workshops, tutorials and live streams for other wedding photographers on how to edit their photos and speed up their post-photoshoot workflows, my industry accreditations make me your go to woman for gorgeously edited images. I’ll get as much right as possible in camera on the day, before going through each individual image and tweaking them to ensure I am 100% happy with the composition, colour balance, exposure and crop. Once edited, I’ll send you a high resolution (300dpi print ready) Jpeg of every edited image – usually at least 400 images – with the rights to print and share online as much as you like. Because after all, you’re going to want to show them off!
YOUR WEDDING IN ALL IT’S
No one likes FOMO, so my second shooter and I will arrive during your pre-wedding preparations – around 1.5 hours before your wedding ceremony – which gives us plenty of time to capture some gorgeous shots of both of you getting ready and spending quality time with your favourite humans. We’ll then be with you right through to the evening reception to capture the first few dance floor numbers. You never know, we might even throw some shapes on the dance floor ourselves! If you’re up for it, we’ll also find an opportunity to steal a little alone time together for a couple’s portrait session, which is a great opportunity for you both to catch your breath and enjoy the beautiful location you’ve chosen to get married in. The portrait session can be as long or as short as you like – I can work around your timetable – and with a little bit of gentle posing guidance we’ll create some magic together.
your package includes…
AN EXTRA COUPLE OF BESTIES
Photographers are a friendly bunch & like to travel in pairs, so there will be one of us for each of you during pre-wedding preparations, and then double coverage throughout the day.
With over 12 years’ experience, I’m here to offer posing guidance & make you feel at ease. I’m also excellent at boutonnières, corsets & suspender straps!
ALL DAY COVERAGE
That’s right, you’ve got us for the entire day! We start around 1.5 hours before your ceremony, right through to the evening reception & the first few dance floor numbers.
We’ll also find time to sneak off & create some epic portraits together.
500+ HIGH RESOLUTION DIGITAL FILES
My goal is to create images you’ll want to display all over your home, which is why I include high-resolution digital images ready for printing. as well as the rights to upload & share them to your social media. I usually deliver at least 500 images.

HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL? DO YOU TRAVEL INTERNATIONALLY?
I love a good road trip! I’m based in Hertfordshire and regularly travel into London, but the sky is the limit. You name it, I can be there! I have a UK passport and can travel and work anywhere, providing the necessary paperwork and visas are organised. Taxi, take me to the airport please!
(Travel and visa expenses may apply – these will be communicated to you in writing before any agreement is made.)
DO WE GET A PORTRAIT SESSION ON THE DAY?
I LOVED the portrait session James & I had on our wedding day – it was a great opportunity to steal a little alone time together, catch our breath and enjoy the beautiful location we had chosen to get married in. If you’re willing, I’d love to give you that experience too. The portrait session can be as long or as short as you like – I can work around you – and with a little bit of gentle posing guidance we’ll create some magic together.
WHAT SORT OF SHOTS CAN WE EXPECT? HOW DO YOU EDIT?
For the most part, I try to be as discreet as possible during your wedding day, focusing on candid shots of you two and your guests, with the odd one or two gently posed shots throughout the day if I see something that inspires me. My aim is to capture your day as it happens, to make your gallery of images reflective of you as a couple.
With regards to editing, I have a small handful of presets that I use as a starting point, before going through each individual image and tweaking it to give a bespoke, clean finish. I ensure I am 100% happy with the composition, colour balance, exposure and crop, before sending you a high resolution (300dpi) Jpeg of every edited image.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Absolutely! I have both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance. I am very happy to provide you wedding venue with proof if required.
HOW DO YOU BACK UP YOUR IMAGES?
I take every precaution possible with my image files. I shoot on a dual slot camera, which means the your images are recorded simultaneously to two separate memory cards throughout the day. As soon as I get home, I then transfer all the RAW images from my memory cards to my computer on two separate external hard drives. I also keep all of my files on the original memory cards until I have finished editing and delivered your images. Once your images are edited and sent to you, I then upload high resolution JPEGs to my offsite storage as an extra precaution.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR US TO GET OUR IMAGES?
I love a good set of sneak peek images, so I always make sure to send a few edited images over within a couple of days of your wedding (hello new profile picture!) You can then expect delivery of your full online gallery within 12 weeks of your big day – although usually I like to make sure they arrive a little sooner. I only take on a maximum of 5 weddings a year, so your edits will never be rushed.
COULD YOU ALSO SHOOT MY BRIDAL BOUDOIR PHOTOS?
I’d love to! Bridal boudoir shoots make great pre-wedding gifts and can also be a fantastic confidence boost ahead of your nuptials. Click here for more information about boudoir shoots including my current pacakges and pricing.
