Welcome to the blog

For a while now, I’ve been looking for a chance to get out from behind my camera and see a shoot from my clients’ point of view. To remember what it’s like to have the camera snapping at me, rather than being the one doing the snapping! After all, the world looks very different from […]

Welcome video

If you were anything like me, you grew up dreaming of being the perfect bride in the perfect wedding. Your makeup flawless, your gown exquisite, your doting husband Disney-prince-perfect in an immaculate suit, and all set against a magnificent backdrop somewhere absurdly picturesque and romantic. Sound too good to be true? Well, this is all pretty standard in the wonderland world of the Asian pre-wedding shoot. Less than 50 […]

Pre Wedding Shoot London

Those empty years that have you waking up on New Year’s Day, bleary eyed and suffering, wondering, where did that year go? What the hell did I achieve? The crushing weight of another year wasted pushes you into your pillows and stops you from getting out of bed. We’ve all been there. I certainly have.   I’m […]

Holly & Yan- Montreux Switzerland Couple Photoshoot

But in reality not all weddings are like this. The comfort zone is a wonderful place but nothing ever grows there, which […]

Ain’t love Grand- Grand Canyon couple shoot

I often get asked, “what happens if it rains?” I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if you’re getting married in the UK, you can NEVER guarantee good weather. In fact, I would almost say to expect bad weather and take sunshine as a welcome bonus! Of course in the grand scheme […]
