Welcome to my website.
I am a wedding and portrait photographer now based on the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border.
I remember the ‘buzz’ from photographing my first wedding…I still get that same feeling today and it is why I enjoy photographing weddings so much. Each wedding is unique and I offer a bespoke service that is tailored to your needs.
I love to capture those behind the scenes moments that will make the memories of your special day complete - the best man nervously rehearsing his speech, a candid look from the groom as he sees his bride for the first time - the details are what the memories of the day are made of and it is my pleasure to capture them for you.
Organising a wedding can be time consuming so my packages are as straight forward as possible and they include at least one pre-wedding consultation so that we can sit down and discuss your special day. Sample albums are on hand for inspiration and I am happy to visit the wedding venue with you so that we can run through ideas together.
Once your special day is over, I will creatively edit your photographs using a mixture of black and white and colour to capture the story of your wedding day from bridal preparation through to when the party begins!
My approach is to be unobtrusive, friendly and for you to feel relaxed and comfortable around me. I have been told on several occasions, that I have felt like part of the family on the day – after all, I am sharing one of your most important days!
I am proud to say that many of my bookings have come through recommendations from previous clients.
The second team member is my husband, Dave, who also comes equipped with a camera, sense of humour and is the expert 'dress fluffer'. As well as second photographer, he has a passion for motorsport and is a dab hand at making sure the men get to the venue on time.
The most recent addition to the team is Preston our mini schnauzer. He has been known to photo-bomb the occasional pre wedding shoot and can only be described as an over confident, hilarious, growly furry thing - but we still love him!
Lastly, the photographs below show a few snippets from my life. I love travelling and photographing interesting places and this is one of my favourites – the Janubio salt flats on the west coast of Lanzarote – a fascinating place to spend a few hours! The two most important things in my life, Mr H and of course, Preston and then a few wedding pictures snapped by other people. I love what I do and I've made some great friends through it!
