I am a wedding and portrait photographer based on the west coast of Cumbria, just outside the Lake District National Park. I love all things creative, family, dogs, and Oreo cookies. I have a passion for the outdoors, whilst often exploring with my four dogs, Shyla, Cooper, Ella and Kobe. I prefer the simple things in life, the fells, the dogs, cameras and my family. As long as food makes an appearance I won’t be complaining.
Originally from Bolton, I moved to Cumbria in 2014. I understand the vast amount of planning and stress a wedding can bring, so I aim to make finding and booking a photographer you love and trust one of those things you can easily tick off your list!
I love natural, documentary-style photography, focusing on the special moments and emotions between people. I will spend my time at your wedding capturing the essence of what your day is all about, from the small details, to the funny, tender and emotional moments between you and your guests - and all the little things you might have missed during the whirlwind of your wedding day!
I have dedicated most of my life to all things creative, always reverting back to my true passion in photography. Although I cannot stand and say I have 10 or 20 years experience as a wedding photographer, I have spent much of the last 10 to 15 years with a camera in my hand. Many people call me a perfectionist with a real fear of failure, perfect qualities for a wedding photographer. As a photographer I am in a privileged and unique position, being involved in the entire wedding day! I take my role seriously, which is reflected through everything I do and everything I offer.
Not only do you have my devoted attention on your day but every day from our first contact, to your delivered albums and beyond, I am here for you, whatever the request. With my meticulous approach, it's time for you to focus on what really matters, and enjoying your big day with your loved ones. You won't see me leaving early just because things are running a little late. No two weddings are the same, my approach and wedding package reflects this, it is your day for me and my camera to fit within. I have professional equipment, professional back up equipment, every camera, lens, battery and memory card is checked and checked again. I have two professional camera bodies, which both shoot to two separate memory cards, keeping your memories super safe at every step.
My creative approach is to look and listen with anticipation for those key moments to unfold. I tend to avoid any fuss or awkward posing, whilst producing a vibrant, natural, emotional result. I am not here to dictate like a director how the day evolves and more importantly the emotion you feel, I am there to capture those big moments, with all the special parts in-between. Here to tell your story, capturing memories that might otherwise be missed. i like to let the day unfold naturally and capture who you and your loved ones really are.
So, got any questions or if you feel I maybe what you are after, someone to capture your day as it happens for you to look back on for generations, get in touch!!!
I look forward to hearing from you...
