My life started in Cheshire but thanks to my parents, at the age of seven we moved down to St.Ives in Cornwall. This is where I found my love for the ocean, nature, music and most of all, my camera.
At the age of 17, after studying music for three years, I swapped my saxophone for my dad’s old Pentax 35 mm film camera and went on my first adventure to Australia, New Zealand and the Cook Islands.
When I returned home to St.Ives I started a Higher National Diploma course in Photography & Digital Media. Leaving with a Distinction, I set up my Cornwall photography business. Over the past 13 years I have worked for the UK Pro Surf tour, international surf companies, magazines in the UK and around the world. Photographs from my Wedding Photography in Cornwall have been published in numerous magazines including WED, Bride, Cornish Brides and Professional Digital Photographer magazine.
I’ve travelled to Bali and Morocco for fashion photo shoots, photographed leopards in Sri Lanka, swum with humpback whales in Tonga, whale sharks & sea lions in Baja, Mexico and waded through lochs on the Isle of Skye photographing otters. My cameras and I have had many adventures and most recently I was awarded the distinction of winning the title of The Best Wedding Photographer in the UK 2017 in the UK Wedding Awards. I have also won the Cornish Brides ‘Wedding Photographer of the Year 2014′ along with having my photos of the Sri Lankan leopards published in National Geographic Asia.
10 years ago I shot my first wedding in Cornwall and haven’t looked back. It’s a huge honour (and responsibility) to be asked to document the most important day in a couples’ life. With such a dramatic coastline there are many beautiful locations for Wedding Photography in Cornwall. Working closely with many wedding venues in Cornwall I know all the best spots for your wedding photos.
Winning the UK Wedding Awards is a great achievement for me. Hearing all the wonderful comments from my clients gives me confidence that I’m providing a service which is appreciated.
Moving away from the traditional approach of wedding photography I shoot natural, creative and artistic photography. Aspiring to capture the true ambience of your wedding day and produce beautiful images that show you as a couple.
When I’m not out with my camera you’re likely to find me kayaking around the Cornish coast on the lookout for dolphins and basking sharks, trying out a new recipe, planning my next adventure or spending time with my family.
My husband Johnny and I have recently bought our first home together in St.Ives Cornwall. Johnny is a professional surfer and surf coach. He has won the British Champion title and English Champion Title… so he likes to think he’s pretty good. We live here with Joey the house rabbit (whom Johnny wishes was a garden rabbit) Joey likes to eat carrots and cables, cabbages and laptop leads, celery and phone chargers…the list is endless.
Along with Cornwall wedding photography, I also specialize in underwater photography, commercial photography in Cornwall, portraits and photography workshops in St.Ives.
I also offer my Wedding Photography services in Devon & Somerset, throughout the UK and overseas.
