I AM ANGE

THE NON-BORING

BIO

I have been shooting weddings for 15 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 may have PTSD about that one. 

I am a deeply stylish nerd, I am passionate about good cheese, the TV shows 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 What We do in The Shadows (nadja4eva), and I believe comfy shoes to be a basic human right.

RANDOM FACTS

Up until a few years ago I thought weasels were mythical – outside of Wind in the Willows, it had 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, adore dogs, and am fascinated by the puppies of the sea (sharks). I assume my eventual demise will be as a result of one of these animals.

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.  Really, how is anyone else remembering this stuff? I have to check the sleeve notes to Uno.

I not married to Nick Offerman or Matt Berry despite by best efforts. Staying single just in case.

But I do have two kick-ass kids who will rule the world one day if I can’t find a way to stop them.

WHY I 

WEDDING

Since I started charging for the pictures I take of people living their lives, I have learned some things:
  • Every bride looks like a stone cold fox on their wedding day.  They just do. Don’t come at me with disagreement. 
  • 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.
  • If you bring a dog to your wedding, 36% of delivered images will be of that dog. That’s just science. 

Dogs are EVERYTHING

But if you like cats

IT’S FINE

WHERE AM I BASED?
