I am a mother and wife, a lover of beautiful things and a lover of love. When I am not behind the camera, you can find me chasing around my two beautiful children Charlie and Cooper with my husband Sean. If we are not on the beach, at sporting events, concerts or camping, downtime for myself involves watching infinite amounts of movies.

My passion for photography started from an early age, I grew up documenting milestones in my life surrounded by family and friends. I’ve always been inspired by the intimate interactions that happen between people - and I believe this lends itself naturally to wedding photography. I find the magic lies in capturing those fleeting moments - whether that be a quick glance or a small hand squeeze.

A wedding is a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring all of your family and friends together to celebrate this crazy, wild love you’ve found within one another. Weddings are reflective of the couples life, which makes them all so unique and special. I love seeing how two people curate all of their favourite things - food, music, rituals to share them with their nearest and dearest. I said earlier that I am a lover of love and I can’t think of another occasion where there is more ‘love in the air’. I’ve always said that if I am going to spend time away from my family it’s to be for something I love.

I find weddings to be a big beautiful day made up of smaller stories. My style is to blend into the background and capture these narratives. I like to observe the interactions around me and naturally capture them without interfering. Each couple spends so much time planning their perfect day and I love seeing their visions come to life, it’s my job then to document these details to ensure they never forget how perfectly ‘them’ the day was.

The 3 things I have always in my mind while photographing a wedding is to capture; the joy of the day, the romance and the overall story. I love seeing the reactions of my couples when they see each other for the first time whether it be down the aisle or a first look. I love family reactions during the ceremony and when it comes to romance nothing beats the portrait session - usually the only alone time the couples get together. I often witness the couples walk down the aisle and it seems a big wave of love washes away all of the nerves and it’s dreamy bliss from this point on.
