You'll most likely find me in the countryside, walking boot laces tangled and small, fellow-redhead pup by my side. Or tucked up in the misted-up window of a newly uncovered coffee shop, dividing my time between people-watching and some dog-eared novel. If it's neither of those, I'll be in the gin bar, trying something new, something local.
I'm your a-typical redhead, a once-upon-a-literature student, and I'm relentlessly camera shy - so I know exactly what you mean when you say 'we're not used to having our photo taken' - trust me. I live in a cottage in the remote Lincolnshire countryside alongside my partner, Will, and pup, Ruby, where the pace (and the internet) are a little slower.
I love heading off on my travels; we're in the process of renovating a Fiat Ducato into a home on the road, planning van life for wedding travels and the moments in between working. I'm pretty convinced the best way possible to spend the day is to head out in your walking boots, camera harness and go explore, stopping off for a G&T and a piled up plate of veggie haggis nachos (I guess my Scottish degree rubbed off on me after all!). My free time is filled with adventures and experimental hobbies, which so far have included ceramics classes, baking, painting and writing two murder mysteries from scratch.
I’m all about capturing the big moments: the confetti, the kisses, the portraits, but also the moments in-between - laughter and happy tears from your family and friends, your head in your hands as the speeches regale your guests, your hands laced as you walk together - those deserve to be remembered, too.
It’s less about posing, and more about guiding; playing off your relationship, and capturing the two of you as you are - your characterful, spirited happiness, your carefree co-existence.
It's warm, nostalgic and creative, documenting your beautiful plans how they deserve to be retold.
We don't really feel comfortable having our photo taken - how does that work?
It's so much less scary than it seems, trust me! If you choose an engagement session, we can work through the awkward giggles, create some gorgeous photos, and you'll feel like seasoned pros by the time your wedding comes around. But if you don't fancy that, don't worry - we won't do pose-y, or scary, we'll just take a walk together on the day and capture the sweetest of portraits whilst putting you at ease.
Do you travel?
Abso-lutely! Wherever you're headed, take me with you!
I'm based in Lincolnshire, but have covered Norfolk, Yorkshire, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Ayrshire - even Antigua! If you're a significant distance from my home in the English Midlands, there may be a small additional fee for travel.
Can we have a second photographer?
Of course! Having a second perspective can help to capture more of those untold moments. It's not a necessity at all, but can be the perfect extra for your day, especially if you have a large guest count or a unique venue. Just ask!
Can you recommend other suppliers?
Absolutely, there's a whole host of wonderful people I've worked with along the way, and I'm more than happy to put you in touch!
How and when will we receive the photos?
I'll send over a couple previews within a few days for you to share in all your newly-wed excitement, then the rest will be delivered around 8-10 weeks, depending on the season. I'll send over an online gallery and USB - from there you can share, print, frame them above the kitchen sink - however you'd like!
Are you insured?
I am, for your peace of mind and mine.
We like what we see, what now?
Perfect! Just send me a message, and tell me a little about your plans - I look forward to hearing from you!
