hello

about me

I’M LAID BACK AND FRIENDLY, I LAUGH HARD AND WEAR MY HEART ON MY SLEEVE.

I’ve been photographing weddings and families for 10 years, so it’s safe to say you’re in good hands,

I live in the West Midlands, in Sutton Coldfield, with my husband, three teenage daughters and a dog called Buddy, who can’t fetch or catch anything  but I have taught him to smile.

I love people, chatting to them and finding out what their story is. So being a photographer is the perfect job. I think I’m one of the lucky ones to do what I love for a living.

Although I’m based in the West Midlands I get to travel all over the UK and abroad for weddings. I’ve seen quite a bit of the world, when I first got together with my husband, he convinced me we should have an adventure. I gave up my job, rented out my house and off we went around the world. After travelling and being together 24/7 for 12 months, without killing each other, we knew it was the real deal, so we tied the knot in Bali, Indonesia.

He’s my best friend and the person who I laugh the most with.

So if you’re looking for a friendly, relaxed Photographer who will fit into your wedding day and capture all of the emotion, or photograph your family in a way that shows bags of personality. I’d love to hear from you. You can get in touch by filling in the contact form here or simply give me a call on 07950 482429 if you fancy a good old fashioned chat.
