hello

about me

I’M FRIENDLY & DOWN TO EARTH. I LAUGH A LOT AND WEAR MY HEART ON MY SLEEVE.

I’ve been a full time professional wedding photographer for 11 years, so it’s fair to say you’re in experienced hands.

I live just outside Birmingham, with my husband, three teenage daughters and a dog called Buddy, who can’t fetch or catch anything  but I have taught him to smile, just not at the camera.

I love meeting people and often drive my family nuts beacuse I like to chat to everyone! I think I’m really lucky to do what I love for a living.

Although I’m a wedding photographer in Birmingham, I get to travel all over the UK and abroad for weddings. I’ve seen quite a bit of the world, when I first got together with my husband, he convinced me we should have an adventure. I gave up my job, rented out my house and off we went around the world. After travelling and being together 24/7 for 12 months, without killing each other, we knew it was the real deal, so we tied the knot in Bali, Indonesia.

He’s my best friend (after the dog) and the person who I laugh the most with.

So if you’re looking for a friendly, relaxed, West Midlands Wedding Photographer who will fit into your wedding day and capture all of the emotion, or photograph your family in a way that shows bags of personality. I’d love to hear from you. You can get in touch by filling in the contact form here or simply give me a call on 07950 482429 if you fancy a good old fashioned chat.
