I’m all about the little things.
…the hand squeezes, the getting ready giggles, the nervous intake of breath, the dab of tears, the awkward ‘is the ring going to fit’ pause, the hugs, the toasts, the blushes and the big belly laughs.
But most of all I’m about the smiles. Not fake, ‘say cheese’, ‘do I have to do this?’ smiles but real, ‘put a sparkle in your eyes’, ‘cheeks are going to ache tomorrow’ smiles.These are the moments that will tell the real story of your day and are the ones I love to capture. As a documentary wedding photographer I get to people watch through my lens on the smiliest day of their life.
BEST JOB EVER! My style is unobtrusive, relaxed and candid and I keep my interference in your day to a minimum so your day is about you, not me.
But I hate having
my photograph taken!
I hear you. Me too.
But believe me when I say that everyone looks at their very best with a genuine, natural and spontaneous smile on their face. You’ll be surrounded by your family and besties, having just the best day and I will be clicking away, in my own little, happy photographer bubble, turning all those beautiful moments into lasting memories for you to keep, always.
You do your thing, authentically, honestly and without being self conscious, and I do mine, with genuine sentiment and passion. Yay!
I’m a relaxed, happy person and I don’t do bossy. If at the end of the night you think you’ve not seen much of me then that’s amazing, we will both have had a great time; you making the most of the best day of your life and me, getting to take photographs of it.
WHEN I’M NOT PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS…
I am a wife to my sidekick and soul mate, mum to my gorgeous daughter and bestie, step mum to my two step sons who are literally a pair of crazies, dog walker to Nell the ball obsessed Springer Spaniel, cook, housekeeper and manager of my seemingly, self generating washing basket, at home in the village of Borough Green near Sevenoaks.
I LOVE COOKING
…particularly a good Sunday roast and I make mean yorkshire puddings if I do say so myself. (My secret is 2,4,6!)
MY FAVOURITE WALK IS A LONG ONE
…with all the family and Nell with a nice pub somewhere on the way and a good, full bodied red wine.
I’M PARTIAL TO A GOOD COFFEE
(usually courtesy of the plush Nespresso machine I “borrowed” from my parents house which I hope they forget to ask for back).
I LOVE HAVING A GOOD BOXSET ON THE GO
The Walking Dead and The Affair are the most recent but I think Breaking Bad is still my favourite.
I ADMIT THAT I HAVE A SNEAKY GO OF FORTNITE
…when the kids aren’t around. I think my top position is about fourth which I don’t think is too embarrassing.
I LOVE A BIT OF STRICTLY & GBBO
…to my husbands dismay. I do get subjected to the football season though so I think it’s only fair he has to suffer a little.
I’M NOT A MORNING PERSON
…I don’t function properly until I’ve had a cup of tea! I’ve tried really hard to like green tea so I can sound sophisticated ordering it but it’s just yucky. Good old fashioned breakfast tea is how I roll.
OUR FAV PLACES TO VISIT
…Purbeck in Dorset, Durness in the Scottish Highlands and Greece. It’s so lovely to now be re-creating the type of memories I have with our own kids. Durness is just stunning – worth the 13 hour drive from Kent (Yes, 13 hours!) . And as for Greece; feta, greek yoghurt, souvlaki, sun and sea – lovely!
I'm a documentary wedding photographer based in Kent and also cover Surrey, Sussex, Essex and London. I also love to shoot family portraits in the Kent area.
