Globe wanderer. Food lover. Diem carper.
I live in a little flat by the canal in east London with my gorgeous husband, a petite blue bike named Bobbi, and far too many cameras. When not photographing weddings I can be found travelling or eating – often both at once.
I love road trips, runny egg yolks, foxes, and giant cosy jumpers. I eat my body weight worth in food, yet still waiting for my growth spurt to happen. I’m a city girl at heart but adore nothing more than a good camping trip, marshmallow toasting, and sleeping under the stars. I never say no to adventures and plan to travel (for work or otherwise) till my legs give out; at which point I hope science will have caught up and I’ll carry on with my bionic legs.
“We love the photos so so much. We can’t believe how you have captured every detail and every moment of the day. When we watched them back they tell exactly the story we wanted to tell. You were so creative and did such a wonderful job putting everyone at ease. You are so incredibly talented and we are so lucky to have found you!!“

Chief photo maker. Story teller.
I am very fortunate to do what I love for a living, my work has taken me all over UK, Italy, France, Greece, Germany, Netherlands, Indonesia, Thailand, and Australia. Every wedding is unique and I love shooting a DIY wedding in an urban industrial London venue as much as one sets on a dramatic cliff in Bali.
I am drawn to beautiful lights, unique perspectives, and images that tell a story. The photos that make you feel awesome and beautiful, the ones that make you laugh or cry – maybe both. I want you to look back on these images and feel like you’re reliving that amazing day.
Love. Adventure. Honest moments. I’d love to tell your story – let’s chat.
