If you're looking for someone who really is fun and fearless, and who feels like a friend (and really becomes one!), who checks their ego at the door and blends in seamlessly all day, goes the extra mile, puts you at ease and makes you laugh, encourages adventures and quiet moments together, and delivers an epic gallery of images that perfectly captures you and your day in the most incredible light, then I'm your girl.
Shooting on film as well as digital, offering the best of both worlds - and new for 2023, now also opening my books to Destination Weddings. See my website for more info!
I live on Dartmoor, Devon, which is wild and rural and full of sacred stone circles and covered in huge rocky outcrops called Tors, and I cover all of the South West and now, the world! I do have to charge for travel outside of a 50 mile radius from home purely because fuel prices have shot up so much!
6 years now, and upwards of 120 weddings (increasing rapidly year on year!)
Candid, authentic, 'Kodak vibes', poetic, and YOURS. By that, I mean I adapt my style on the day and craft my photos to fit with your personalities, and to convey your connection authentically, but always with a high level of artistry and creativity. My editing style (and film choice) is always Kodak inspired, so there's a timelessness about my photos that preserves the true tones and vibrancy of colours but has a warm air of nostalgia about it. Colours are actually usually the thing most clients mention to me first, so hopefully this little explanation helps you understand what sets me apart.
My UK full day wedding package is my most popular at this point, and includes a pre wedding shoot, and film & digital photography, and starts at £3200. I offer 10% off for payment upfront in full, and hand crafted fine art wedding albums and prints are also available afterwards (and are absolutely incredible! I'm very blessed to be working alongside one of the best print companies in the world, and they're small, sustainable and of a quality I can't find anywhere else).
I use Skype and FaceTime or WhatsApp for those who live too far away to meet face to face, but you’re always welcome at mine for coffee and cake! My studio is currently being built as we speak!
I'll never stop learning. I'm always looking to raise the bar on my previous work, go further, gain more skills, and that's now led me back to film photography, where I'm learning to develop and scan the film myself and one day soon will also hopefully be able to offer a full analogue process where I print the photos myself for you in the old school way - no digital processing interfering whatsoever. I also attend workshops when I can, and even on my 'time off' you'll find me immersed in something creative and photography focused. I'm a little bit obsessed!!
I grew up half in the UK and half in New Zealand, and have also lived in Australia (northern Queensland) and Spain (the Alicante region) and have traveled everywhere in between. I LOVE other cultures and exploring the world in a very real way - my worst nightmare would be an all inclusive resort where you never leave and explore...! Traveling is second nature to me, and as a permanent resident of New Zealand and a bit of a gypsy at heart, I have decided my kids are old enough for me to add destination weddings to my schedule from now on, and so I am now taking bookings for anywhere across Europe (I especially want to shoot a wedding in Venice and anywhere in Tuscany or Puglia, the South of France, or somewhere incredible like a Santorini wedding) and I am going to be taking photos in Marrakech in November 2023 if anyone wants to encourage me to extend my stay for more weddings or engagement shoots! My soul is really craving travel and the creativity and artistic expression that destination weddings demand, so anyone who's planning something special please get in touch and we can have a chat! I would love to be your destination wedding photographer.
