‘Here’s the thing about magic: It’s most powerful when it is believed in, whole heartedly’ Chanel French.

I am a Creative Wedding Photographer based in Hemel Hempstead and I definitely believe in magic. Photography is the most amazing and wonderful art.    I know choosing your Wedding Photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make and my creative talents will ensure you relax, have a wonderful day and enjoy your Wedding Photos for many years to come.  So, let me tell your story.   I shoot a limited number of Weddings per year to ensure a professional, and unique approach to every wedding.

I am a  documentary style Story Teller with an Arts background and  tell your wedding story through my images. With over 15 years of wedding experience, I deliver exquisite photos of your special day with a quirky edge & an eye for the comic, touching, and fun moments.  I am friendly, discreet and easy to get along with; devoted to capturing all your amazing moments including the traditional elements of your wedding. Apart from arranging your formal portraits (I promise not to spend too long on these so you can enjoy your guests! ) I will be documenting your wedding behind the scenes and focusing on beautiful photos of the two of you to treasure for a lifetime.

I am also known for applying a signature style to a few stand out images creating something stunning and unique for your walls.

I am  a recommended and trusted wedding photographer for top luxury wedding venues, Ashridge House, Latimer House, Shendish Manor, Sopwell House, The Noke Mercure, Notley Tythe Barn, The Kings Arms, Berkhamsted, Putteridge bury, Moor Park, Boxmoor Lodge.

As a family photographer I specialise in Pregnancy, Newborns & Family Portraits. Newborn Photography is such a passion.  I adore these shoots so let me know when your little one is on its way as best time to capture them is within the first two weeks. I work either in my studio & offer at home shoots with a variety of props, blankets and baskets. As well as family photographs (which are often taken outdoors in a rural setting if possible) I do bespoke Lifestyle Business Shoots which covers website head shots to a complete appraisal of your business and self image.

Engagement Shoot at Sopwell House

Wonderful little engagement shoot @Sopwellhouse St Albans with this very gorgeous family whose wedding will be shooting on 9th November this year – can’t wait.  They opted for an ‘engagement shoot’ as their wedding will be during winter.  It was also a great way for us to get to know each other a little bit more too.  We had a lot of fun together esp because of their most scrumptious little daughter with the longest eyelashes.  Can’t wait now guys – only three more months can you believe it! #sopwellhouse #engagementshoot #engagement #stalbans #authenticlove #lovemyjob #canonuser #creativeweddingphotographer #hertsbrides #novemberwedding #weddings #bridesandgrooms #brides
