Fun and free-spirited, I want you not just to look good but to feel good. This is a day you will remember forever so it has to be fun. You enjoy yourselves, I’ll capture the magic and will whisk you away for the golden hour sunset shots when the light is just right.
I’m so passionate about film. The effortless elegance it evokes is unrivalled. It’s the epitome of timeless nostalgia. I combine digital photography with film to create romantic textured images that are editorial and emotive.
I love weddings, I’m literally obsessed and could talk about them all day. Add to that my expertise and experience, I’m able to advise and offer an honest opinion on every element of your day. Trust between us is so important to me so this is an opportunity for us to
connect and for you to discuss your wedding with someone as excited as you are.
Super 8 and 35mm offers a vintage aesthetic and a sense of nostalgia. And as for the 48…
that’s my promise. To send a sneak peek of the images to you within 48 hours… I know the rush of those first images will remain with you forever and to receive them while you are still on a high or perhaps even on honeymoon, it’s the best way to sustain the excitement and the celebration. The 48-hour sneak peek is my favourite part.
Old Hollywood meets heirloom, what I love about Super 8 video is that it transports you back and feels timeless and textured in equal measure. It always reminds me of that scene in Love Actually where the best friend is secretly recording Keira Knightley, the rawness and authenticity and all that this elicits. It’s less polished than a traditional video and the grain adds a bit of grit and glamour. To get this effect I use an original professional vintage camera combined with lab development. Unrivalled romance captured on film.

The art is in the editing. Capturing your wedding is one small part of the experience. For me it involves hours of going through imagery and footage, editing, perfecting, polishing. I never alter the truth of the moment but I remove anything unnecessary in the background and adopt my signature style which is muted, timeless and filmesque.
Here I will choose whether an image calls for the warmth of the colour or the unadulterated glamour that you only get with black and white. The magic of the editing experience ensures the most sensational images that tell your story in style.
Crafted with fine art paper and beautifully bound, your wedding album is the ultimate investment. Created, curated and carefully considered, telling your story from start to finish of the most important day of your lives. A meaningful addition to your wedding experience, a fine art album taking pride of place on your coffee table is a constant reminder of your vows, evoking all of the memories and all of the magic forevermore.
It's no secret that I LOVE to travel and experience new places. It also fuels my creativity to be in a new place, with beautiful landscapes and light. Because of the time it takes for me to travel and shoot weddings abroad, I therefore only take on a very exclusive amount of destination per year
