ABOUT ME

I'm not too serious about life but I'm serious about your wedding photos. I will treasure your wedding photos like they're mine (which is a lot).

 

I'm a natural light photographer and live for golden hour sunset pics. I'm no macho man so won't carry around huge, studio umbrella lights.

My style of work is documentary, unobtrusive, and honest. I will see things you don't and pick up details of your day to tell a story. 

I genuinely believe that the raw + unposed fragments of your day will be more precious than the straight lines of formal group shots (though we can totally take these photos for grandma too).

I prioritise meeting up + interacting as humans. I will get to know you both as friends, not just as clients. I will most definitely be emotionally invested in you guys + be sad that it's all over after your wedding day. 

ABOUT YOU

You're madly in love, get sarcasm, and value your wedding photos.

You don't mind sneaking away from your guests for 20 minutes to snap some golden hour pics.

Fun, organic, candid images speak louder to you than the straight lines of formal group shots.

You're probably a bit nervous about a camera following you all day (and how to smile and where to put your hands), but you're also willing to trust your photographer.

You're excited for cute pics with bae which are natural + authentic.

You're open to making a new friend (me), which also means you like a bit of weirdness in your life.

I believe in simple + transparent pricing so I can give you the best of me.

 

I only offer two packages - one for full day weddings (from bridal prep alllll the way to first dance), and one for smaller, more intimate weddings/elopements (just the ceremony and a few bridal portraits). 

 

However, I know that one size doesn't fit all so you may choose to customise this package with the optional upgrades.

Your photos aren't meant to be forgotten on your laptop. They were taken to be held, relived at random hours of the day, and passed around the coffee table when friends and family visit.

As a thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer, I'll be gifting you 10 fine art prints (you get to pick your most favourit-est pics) which will be presented in an elegant, handmade, faux leather pouch (you also get to pick whether you want a cream or taupe pouch!).

I'm super duper proud to be supporting a local business which delicately produces high quality products you'll only love. All your images are printed on 310gsm rough textured fine art paper with hand deckled edges using a Giclee printer (a fine art printing process). ALSOOO your prints are of museum archival quality meaning they will last for generations. aka I want to gift you the gift of a lifetime.

I freaking LOVEEEE to travel and am fortunate enough to have a job which allows me to see the world and take incredible photos of different cultures, sights, and colours.

First, fill in the contact form below so I know that YOU WANT ME.

I'll get back to you within 48 hours with my Wedding Guide packed with info on what to expect and how everything is gonna work.

If you're happy with everythanggg I'll hop on the phone and say a big HELLO, get to know you + your fiance, chat briefly about your wedding plans, and answer any questions you may have.

I ask for a signed contract and £400 non-refundable deposit (or 30% of your package if you're booking an Intimate Wedding) to officially book your wedding date in. Please note that nothing is booked + no deal is sealed until I receive both your signed contract and deposit. The remaining payment can either be made in one lump sum or over two instalments, and must be fully cleared 14 days before your wedding date. You can choose what works best for you guys! 

We will officially meet and chat about 3 times before your wedding date (in addition to the millions of texts and emojis and GIFs we will send each other). Once for your initial consultation, usually on the phone, once to discuss your wedding questionnaire about 6 months before your wedding (we can go all out and grab meatballs or coffee here), and once a few weeks before your wedding to nail down every single detail. 

I can't wait to hear from you!! Please know that I do a happy dance every time a new friend pops up in my inbox. If you have any burning questions, see if I've answered them already here.
