Hello,

So, this is where I talk about me…

Photographing weddings, families, lifestyle photography, and subtle boudoir, in a soft natural light, and delicate non-intrusive style and way, is my passion, my full-time career, my life.

Want to know how it all started?  I’ve got a background in the arts.  I’ve always been into photography and film photography, fine art painting, photo-journalism, fashion, music, anything creative, it was, and always will be, a huge part of my life.  Whilst studying I was approached by a professional film wedding photographer who asked if I would like to assist him at weddings, I accepted and this led to me assisting him most weekends for around 4 years.  In 2004 I graduated with a bachelor of arts in art film photography.  I have since worked for some of the U.K’s leading portrait studios around different parts of the country, whilst shooting my own booked weddings in addition.  I have also worked as a photo-journalist in Australia.  I hold a teaching qualification and used to run therapeutic art workshops for schools and charities…  And here I am now… A Leeds wedding photographer that travels all over the globe creating visual memories for betrothed couples.

I’m also green hearted and proud!  I am a huge supporter of local businesses and a lot of my products are locally sourced and eco-friendly.  I strive for quality hand-made products and paper, and something a bit different.

Things I love:  Sandy toes and salty kisses, dancing under the moonlight, portraits at sunset, heartfelt readings, tears of joy, and live music.

I am also registered with the photographic charity The Butterfly Wishes Network.

Oh and I’m addicted to popcorn!
