I have been shooting weddings for 10 years and have dealt with pretty much every scenario that they can throw at me. From torrential rain to a surprise visit from Tony Blackburn in a shirt unbuttoned to the waist and making people dance to ABBA.
I am a bit of a nerd, I am passionate about good cheese, the TV show Parks & Recreation (Watch it. Really. But Season 1 is a bit sketchy. When you’ve finished season 2 or 3 come back to me and we can talk about how much you love it) and dogs, and I believe comfy shoes to be a basic human right.
Up until a few years ago I thought weasels were mythical – outside of Wind in the Willows, it just never came up. I have been deeply in love with Keanu Reeves since I was 15 years old, he curiously doesn’t seem to feel the same if the marked lack of texts and emails is any evidence. His loss. What am I saying? I can’t stay mad at Keanu.
I am terrified of large beetles, although weirdly I own a bright yellow vintage beetle (the car, not like an old cockroach), called Sunny Von Buglow and I adore her (when she is not costing me all the money).
I was once an extra in a Welsh soap opera
I am not Welsh but this is fine because I didn’t have to talk.
I instantly forget the rules to all board games
Literally as soon as they are explained to me, but I remember the complete lyrics to far too many musicals.
I am married to a man I met at school
We are still together, despite his inability to properly stack things, and we have two kick-ass girls who will rule the world one day if I can’t find a way to stop them.
MADE OF CHEESE
- Every bride looks like a stone cold fox on their wedding day. They just do.
- Children will not sit still. Ever. Unless you want them to run about. And reverse psychology doesn’t work. It really comes down to hypnotism or a blow dart.
- I consider being present at these important days such a privilege. To see the anxiety, the drama, the relief, the fun, the dancing, the affection; and then to get to record it all – is there a better job?
- Also sometimes there are confetti cannons and I am basically a delinquent magpie so I find this endlessly exciting. I may or may not keep a mini one in my car boot at all times.
Dogs are EVERYTHING
But if you like cats
WHERE AM I BASED?
I shoot creative, modern wedding photography in Winchester, Hampshire, and throughout the UK. Wherever you are planning to say 'I do', and to whom, please get in touch.
