Weddings…

are an incredible mix of people, family, moments, romance, characters, hopes, gestures, emotions, happiness, nerves, excitement and love. Lots of it! It’s all there, crammed and squished tightly into one long, lovely day. And I love that I get to share in days like this through my photography, capturing those lovely wedding moments as I see them for couples who get excited about photography and understand it’s value – not just for now but for the future too.

I’m a creative storytelling wedding photographer…

capturing things as they are happening, in a relaxed and candid way. I’m based in Sussex based wedding photographer and LOVE what I do and will travel anywhere for weddings. I’ll blend those real wedding moments with some romantic and creative portraits of the two of you. My approach isn’t about the photography taking over your wedding day, far from it. I don’t interrupt the day’s events but simply let things flow. Weddings are all about moments… funny moments, romantic moments, family moments, tender moments, in-between moments, silly moments.

Moments that become STORIES…. your stories…

Moments for those couples who want to do it their way and aren’t afraid to show the world how much they mean to each another. I pour my heart and soul into every single wedding I shoot, and want all my couples to feel they’ve had real value, 100% of me, my energy, all my TLC and my creative take on your wedding day. Weddings are collaborations and I’ll tell you what I need from you as well as letting you have lots of help and advice along the way so you don’t feel overwhelmed or lost. Most weddings happen without a hitch and a fabulous day is had by all. But they’re not always perfect and they don’t always go to plan. At times they can be a bit stressful, time slips and nerves kick in… I’m here to help and guide you throughout the run up to the wedding, and will be there with you 100% on your day, a calm assuring presence when you need it.
