A lover of coffee and cake, sunshine and beaches, pastel colours, Formula 1, and... of course... dogs! Originally from the Scottish Highlands, I now live in the Peak District with my husband Daniel and our two beagles, Jenson and Cooper.
I met Daniel in high school we've now been together almost two decades (giving my age away there) and six years ago I married my best friend at the Peak Edge Hotel. We love exploring new places together, going on holidays to the beach with the dogs and also looking after our new build garden which we've slowly turned into a (slightly) tamed jungle.
When I'm not behind the camera you might find me out with the beagles (in all weather), in the garden or watching a good movie or the latest tv series. However, without a doubt, I'll either be eating or thinking about what I'm having for dinner... I'm all about the food!
My passion for photography started at a young age. I used to fill rolls of film with holiday photos and snaps of me and my friends just acting daft. Having always been a creative person, I usually have some kind of project on the go; whether it be decorating, a garden project, upcycling furniture, or some form of arts and crafts. I bought my first digital camera in 2006, but little did I know that one day, my passion and creativity would lead me to a "job" that I absolutely love.
I can't describe how happy it makes me to deliver beautiful memories for my couples, allowing them to relive their happy day time and time again.
I feel privileged to be a part of, and share in your special day. I'm not just there to take photos, I'm there to guide you through, be on hand for any of your needs, and create lasting memories for you to treasure forever.
My goal is to leave you with a wedding gallery brimming with genuine fun filled and heartfelt memories for you to cherish forever. I achieve this in an unobtrusive manner, allowing you to relax and enjoy spending time with your loved ones and have an incredible day.
I'll be discreetly present throughout the day, watching for candid moments unfolding and capturing authentic photographs without intruding. I especially love to capture all the intricate details of the day which you have put so much time and effort into creating your vision.
However, I won't be entirely hands-off. I'll be there to help ensure everything runs smoothly and to offer assistance and guidance as needed, whether it be folding a pocket square, pinning button holes, or calming last minute jitters.
Also, I'll coordinate a fun and fast group photo session to ensure that these essential shots are captured but don't take up too much of your celebration time.
The couples I've had the pleasure of working with often express their thanks for the support I provided throughout the entire wedding journey, from the pre-wedding preparations to the actual wedding day, and beyond. They've commented on my ability to put them at ease, creating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for everyone involved.
I will also ensure that you have time to sneak away from the busy schedule of the day, allowing you to enjoy a few precious moments together as newlyweds. During this time, I will capture some beautiful portraits of you both.
I offer free consultations with no obligation to discuss your wedding plans, helping us to determine the most suitable photography options for your special day.
My goal is to provide you with a smooth and stress-free experience, from our initial consultation continuing through to the final delivery of your photo gallery and print products, as well as ongoing support. I will provide my guidance and expertise wherever you require it.
I will arrange to meet with you before the big day (ideally in person), giving us the opportunity to get know each other, delve into your journey together, and to understand your vision for your special day. Above all, I want to ensure you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera with me as your selected photographer, as this ultimately results in outstanding photographs.
This approach allows me to tell your story and document your wedding day authentically; providing you with photographs that capture your personalities and reflect you as a couple.
Whether you're organising a cozy, intimate wedding or a joyous weekend-long celebration, if you seek a photographer who exudes a calm yet confident approach, is a reliable ally who you can wholeheartedly rely on, I am the person for you!
