and next steps

Fancy meeting you here

I’m stoked that you’re thinking of partnering with me for this incredibly epic time of your lives. I know it can be a pretty stressful time too (having tied the proverbial knot myself, I know it’s quite the ride!) which is why my #1 priority is to give you the breathing space you need to focus on all the feels of what will most likely be the most magical and whirlwind day of your life so far.

My work is all about collaboration and heart.

I’m a passionate, creative soul in love with this beautiful art of storytelling, and so moved by the moments that come to life before my eyes (like, ugly-crying-behind-the-camera vibes). I know first-hand how sacred these memories are, and how important it is to keep them with us on the winding road of life. I would be over the moon to work with you and to play my part in telling your story.

I’m all about the belly laughs, dance-offs, road trips, sunsets, puppy cuddles, exploration, popcorn and living life with the training wheels off. More importantly, I live for those goosebump moments that can literally take your breath away…

Take only memories, leave only footprints


It is my promise to you that my full attention, passion and energy will be poured into your wedding day, so that you walk away from the experience feeling RAD, with feel-good memories that will start a fire in your heart every time you relive them.

If you decide that I’m the gal for you, I’d love to meet with you in the run up to the big day (in person or online) to plan, discuss and visualise exactly how the day will come together and where I will be most effective in doing my job in the very best way possible. Relationships are important to me, and making sure that we ‘click’ is part of the process. After all, you’re trusting me with a pretty important task!

This is my most popular package for couples who want full day coverage (up to 10hrs). On the wedding day, I will capture as many moments as possible, and as time allows. This usually includes the couple getting ready, ceremony, venue & decor, couple portraits, family photos, social shots of guests, and the early part of the reception.

For weddings of over 120 guests, please chat to me about a bespoke package, as a 2nd photographer and additional editing time may be required.

Intimate Package

For smaller, more intimate weddings that require less coverage. On the wedding day, I’ll capture as many moments as possible, and as time allows, which usually includes the ceremony, decor & details, couple portraits, family photos, social shots of guests, and the start of the reception.

Fancy a chat?

If you’d like to chat about my packages and find out more about how I work, or if you have any special requirements that need a tailored quote, then let’s have a chinwag!

Since I’ll be with you on the most special day of your life, it’s important that we vibe! I want you to feel at ease with me, like you have a trusted friend hanging out with you for the day (with a camera in her hand and a questionable sense of humour). 

Book a Zoom or Whatsapp call and let’s find a day and time that works for us all… the sooner the better!


Once you’ve made the decision to book with me, simply select your package above, or head over to my booking form so I can provisionally secure your date and get the wheels in motion.

I’ll then send you my contract and invoice via email. A £500 booking fee and a signed contract will secure your booking. Then it’s officially time to pour yourself a fancy beverage, kick back and relax… your work here is done!

Please note that bookings are granted on a first-come, first-served basis, and I am unable to confirm dates without a signed contract and booking fee.

If you have any questions along the way, please get in touch.

I’m a London wedding photographer based in Kent, but I’ll happily travel if your wedding venue is in one of the other home counties.

My Full Day packages include travel to venues located within 2hrs from West Kent.

My Intimate packages include travel within London or 1hr from West Kent.

For weddings further afar, or international/destination weddings, please get in touch so I can quote accordingly.

Heck yes! I have full, professional insurance and public liability to cover every aspect of my wedding photography services.

I always aim to share a few ‘sneak peeks’ with my couples within the first few days after the wedding, as I know how excited you are to see them and relive some of the moments while you’re still on that wedding high!

Your full private online gallery will be ready in 6-8 weeks after the wedding, particularly during the peak wedding season. You will be able to share, download and print all or any of the images from within this gallery.


If you take a look at my work, it should be evident that I’m a lover of natural, unstructured storytelling.

There may be moments that call for some gentle direction – especially if you prefer a bit of guidance which I’m happy to give – but I want to capture truth and real emotion and those little sparks of joy when nobody else is looking. 

I aim to document your day as it naturally unfolds (instead of manufacturing what and how it happens) so you can remember how it was to be there in that very moment. 

I’m also always on the lookout for beautiful light and composition and might whip you away to grab a few quick frames if I see a moment that’s too good to miss!

In terms of my editing style, I really don’t believe that one ‘look’ fits all. I don’t do carbon copies, but rather draw inspiration from the feeling, light, tones and energy of the wedding day itself, as they are all beautifully unique.

If you want absolute perfection, I may not be the photographer for you… but if you want authenticity, cheesy puns (my lame joke game is strong), images that come from the heart, and incredible memories for life… I’m your gal!

Thanks to the magic of technology (“ok boomer”), we’ll absolutely be setting up an online ‘face-to-face’ chat, once the booking is confirmed, for us to get to know one another a bit more and talk about how you’d like your wedding day to unfold! 

Then about 1 month before the wedding you’ll receive an online questionnaire so that I can get all the juicy deets (venue info, final timings, order of events, etc) and make sure we’re ready to roll come the big day.

Of course, I’m always available on email or phone to answer any questions you might have during your planning stages… and if we happen to live close enough to each other, then I’d love to get together with you both for a coffee or a cheeky glass of wine, if our schedules allow!

It’s important to me that you feel at ease, relaxed and confident in me and my abilities so that you can focus on more important things… like marrying the love of your life and having the wedding of your dreams!

In the event that you need to cancel your booking, the booking fee you paid at the time of booking is non-refundable and will be forfeited. If you need to reschedule your wedding date, I’d be happy to transfer your deposit to the new date, subject to my availability. Please note that fees for rescheduled weddings may be subject to change.

Although it has not happened yet, if any unexpected situation arises and I’m unable to shoot your wedding, I always have a backup plan.

One of my very talented and trusted fellow photographers will step in and cover your wedding if necessary and meet the same highest standards as I would.

I will still be processing, editing the entire wedding and delivering the online galleries myself.
