Where it began

Whilst planning my wedding to my husband Daniel, we looked for weeks for a style of photography which had a whimsical, dream-like feel. The many weeks of searching paid off (in more ways than one) by leading me to discover fine art photography. I instantly fell in love with the soft pastel tones, considered shots and the romantic feel which the style portrays. 

The beauty of this style of photography is that each frame tells the essence of a story using soft yet warm tones, which are highlighted using natural light - perfect for portraying the romance at weddings and the innocence of a precious newborn child. I was hooked. I knew this was the style of photography I wanted for our big day.. but something stirred a little deeper - I wanted to create these beautiful images for others. 

My journey so far

Being a photographer allows me the great honour of meeting so many people at pivotal chapters in their story. Documenting the happiest of times in their life  is the greatest of privileges and it is something I hold dear to my heart. I have had the great pleasure of photographing weddings across Yorkshire and the UK including venues in York, Harrogate, Newcastle and even some more secluded venues in hidden parts of Northumbria.  

I am dedicated to delivering a collection of truly beautiful images in my unique style, which tell your story in a honest way. My job is to preserve the emotions, the punch-lines, the happy tears, the tiny details that some may miss and the sweetest of smiles so that you, the viewer, can relive and rejoice in the memories which are sparked for years to come.  

If you like the sound of my photographic style, why not 'say hello' and let's chat about the next chapter of your story.
