for relaxed & laid-back couples
I’m a Stamford wedding photographer with a real love for being in large spaces full of happy people. Documenting weddings in a natural way is a real pleasure for me, I’m so lucky to be doing something I love for people who really care about their pictures. I mostly photograph weddings in Rutland and around the East Midlands but rarely pass up the opportunity to travel!
My photography style is documentary and natural, editorial at heart. My photos are light, rustic and mostly unscripted with a dash of humour.
My story began about ten years ago in press photography. I really enjoyed my time working in journalism but soon realised wedding photography was my true calling and set up my own business in 2011. I can’t think of any better way to have spent the last six years and am so grateful to all the amazing couples who have made my dream job possible, thank you so much.
As a press photographer, I learned to investigate, to ask questions, and to be flexible. I like to guess people’s behaviour and reactions to things, looking out for special spontaneous moments. This helps me get good, documentary photos – photos with meaning and emotional significance.
I bring this same spontaneous vibe into your group and couple shots, too. I enjoy being with your family and friends and keep things fun and light-hearted. If you’re feeling a little camera-shy, I’ll help you feel comfortable and relaxed.
I like to get to know you as a couple, and find out which aspects of the day are most important for you to have photographed. I want to capture you in a way that shows who you are and your unique love and affection for each other.
I treasure my own family photos so much and love the idea that you’ll feel the same way about the ones I take for you, for years to come. It’s a genuine honour to be trusted with your memories.
I like a more natural edit style so your photos are light, bright and colourful, never over-processed or forced. I want your photos to still be shining 20 years from now.
I live with my partner in the quirky little market town of Bourne, close to Stamford and Grantham in the East Midlands. When I’m not out shooting weddings I’m usually working at home or taking long walks with my partner (we’re quite outdoorsy). I’m also a bit of a secret geek, I love nothing more than the latest popular psychology book and I’m also a wannabe polyglot – I love languages (I’ve been trying to learn Hungarian for fifteen years, it’s hard work!).
I like to work with relaxed couples who want to have a lot of fun at their wedding rather than spend hours on formal, staged photos. If this sounds like you and you like what you see in my portfolio, let’s talk! I’d love to hear more about you and your wedding plans.
Yes, every wedding collection comes with a USB containing all your fully-edited images as high resolution JPEG files. You'll also receive a lovely online gallery to share with your guests and order prints if you like as well.
Absolutely, please go ahead and share your pictures however you like as long as it's for non-commercial use. If any of your other suppliers would like access to the photos and you're OK with that too, please ask them to contact me so I can help them out.
Yes indeed, though I do recommend using a professional photo lab or your online gallery print facility to ensure they are the very best quality. This way I can personally check all orders and offer technical assistance if required.
Depending on your coverage you'll receive anything between 300-500 individually edited photographs. Exact numbers depend on a whole host of factors including the timings of your day, how many guests you're having and whether you choose to book a Second Shooter. There's no limit on the number of pictures I take or edit, if an image is good it'll be included.
I edit a wedding in several stages. First I'll go through all the photos taken and pick out the best shots, so often that's comparing two or three very similar frames and curating a series which becomes your final set. After that I individually edit each photo in my signature style before uploading them to your web gallery. I may edit some images in black and white but can make colour copies available on request.
For weddings happening between October and May you'll normally be able to view your photos within five weeks of your wedding day. In busy times (June-September) this may increase to six weeks depending on workload.
Yes. If you'd like a wedding album I'll ask you to pick around 100-120 of your favourite photographs using your online gallery before I set to work on the design. If you struggle for time to do this I'm more than happy to pick an initial selection for you with the option to adjust things once you’ve seen the first design.
Depending on the time of year, your album will take between two/three weeks to design before you approve the layout. As soon as you are happy with the design, the books will be ordered and normally take a further four weeks to be bound, printed, checked and delivered. Turnaround time may be longer over the holiday periods or if you pick your photos later than two weeks after the initial request.
Yes, I'm very lucky to work regularly with other wedding photographers around the country and have a wide network of second shooters who would love to help capture your day. Please get in touch for more details.
Yes, I'm fully insured with £5 million Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance as required by most venues.
I'll always work my socks off to get you the very best pictures whatever the weather and am more than happy to go out in the rain to take pictures if you are. If you don't fancy going outside we'll find a covered area or space with nice light inside your venue instead.
Only if you ask for extra coverage, extra products or a second shooter. Travel expenses are included for weddings within a 100 mile radius of Bourne, Lincolnshire. If your wedding is outside this area we'll discuss any extra mileage or accommodation during your initial consultation. As a sole trader I am not registered for VAT so this will not be added to the price.

While a portfolio is a great way to look at a photographer’s favourite images, I think you can tell a lot more about a photographer’s overall style by checking out their blog. Here are a selection of some of my favourite blog posts from over the years.
I like to post a good selection of images from as many weddings as I can to show how my photography style works throughout the day. When you’re choosing a wedding photographer it’s good to see examples of a full wedding day start to finish, so everything from getting ready and ceremony to the reception, speeches and evening party.
Check out some of the wedding magazines and blogs my fab couples have been featured in. It’s always really exciting to see a weddings in print or on a wedding blog to give newly engaged couples inspiration for their own day in the making.
There’s nothing I love more than receiving notes and thank you cards from couples’ whose weddings I’ve photographed. It’s like a little souvenir of the day for me and makes my job feel extra fulfilling.
So last Tuesday was just a typical weekday in my office. Answering emails, editing and planning next year’s shoots. I was actually just clocking off for the evening when a quick glance at my messages stopped me in my tracks – I’d just been Highly Commended for the East Midland’s Best Wedding Photographer in the Wedding Industry Awards. ...Read More
Gemma and John’s vintage-inspired wedding at Shustoke Farm Barns was probably one of the cutest and most perfectly-styled weddings I’ve ever photographed. What a fab start to 2017! I was so excited when I got Gemma and John’s first email way back in 2015. Gemma is an old school friend who I’d not seen in ...Read More
Sometimes as a wedding photographer you come across a venue you instantly fall in love with. For me that venue is Caswell House in Oxfordshire. I’ve photographed three weddings at this gorgeous barn venue now and would love to go back again soon. With its beautiful Cotswold stone and pretty gardens there are tonnes of ...Read More
I’d been looking forward to Kelly and Chris’ Rutland wedding since I got their very first email way back in July 2015. It’s always exciting when you receive a wedding enquiry with lots of detail and after reading their first message I was sold!
