I’m a wedding & lifestyle photographer based in Norfolk, but travel happily anywhere!
I’ve told stories all my life. I began with simple paper shapes, twisting them into stick people and acting out dramas. This was followed by drawing stories with simple text until I reached the age when I wrote whole stories with chapters! I began working life as a trainee journalist, writing for magazines and newspapers over the years until the twirling paths of life took me into teaching – English of course! Then 4 years ago I returned to what I loved best, telling stories myself – but this time with a camera instead of a pen. Your wedding day is a complete story, and it starts with the prelude – your engagement shoot. On the day itself, your story unfolds from the bridal prep into the ceremony and continues right through to the celebratory dancing in the evening. My camera captures ever moment of the day unfolding – giving you your own wedding story to remember as the years of your marriage go by. But your story doesn’t end there! I’m also available to capture the story of your family. Wedding or lifestyle family shoot – both are stories from your life – and that definitely deserves to be told and remembered. xxxx
I am available for wedding & lifestyle bookings in the UK and abroad. My preparation for your wedding days starts from the day you book me as I work with you to ensure every detail of your wedding is captured along with your family and friends.
I know that you spend a long time making sure everything from table plans to flowers to food and wine is absolutely perfect, and that you will want a record of them all. As well as reportage shots, I also make sure you have some magazine fine art style couple shots that will be suitable for you to frame for your home. After your wedding, I spend up to 3 days editing your pictures before selecting a number to put together as a slideshow, making it simple and beautiful for your first viewing of your pictures.
Your pictures are supplied in digital format on USB. I am registered with some of the finest quality album printers in the world, and if you choose to, can design the perfect retelling of your wedding story in an album that will become a family heirloom.
OUR FAMILIES WANT A LOT OF GROUP PICTURES. HOW MANY SHOULD WE HAVE?
Formal traditional group photos are extremely time consuming, each one taking on average about 5 minutes to gather up participants and pose them. They require your guests to stand around waiting for their turn when really they want to be celebrating your marriage! And you can always guarantee that someone will have disappeared to find a toilet, just when they’re needed. For that reason, I only do a maximum of 6 formal pictures, and will help you work out who should be in those. When you look back over your day, the last thing you will want to see are huge numbers of photos that look very similar when the time could have been spent on beautiful and unique images showing your friends and family at their natural best.
WE WANT TO GET MARRIED IN THE HEBRIDES. HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
The only extras you will pay will be travel to and from your wedding location plus food and accommodation for the day before and the morning after your wedding. The price of your wedding photography remains the same.
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU AT OUR WEDDING BREAKFAST?
Yes please!! By the time your wedding breakfast starts, I will have been working on my feet from early morning, carrying heavy cameras and will probably be fainting with hunger by early afternoon. However, I don’t need to be accommodated in your guest seating plan – most venues will have a quiet corner where I can sit and have my food. And rest assured, whether your speeches are at the start or end of your meal, I will be capturing those.
