My style is effortlessly romantic, documentary photography - I chase beautiful light and real emotion. I strive to create a relaxed environment, putting you and your guests at ease so you can forget I'm there and I can capture the real you. I am based in Buckinghamshire but love to travel especially if you are planning to head off to Bali or the Maldives...
I love sushi, Wes Anderson films & espresso martinis - preferably all at the same time! My favourite moment of the Wedding day is always throwing the confetti - there is something so special about welcoming the new couple with so much fun, colour and love!
I would absolutely love to photograph your day for you to capture a collection of images that you will treasure for the rest of your lives.

We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say THANK YOU for your cheerfulness, professionalism and family-wrangling on the day. You were absolutely fantastic – so many people remarked on what an excellent job you did of capturing everything and keeping everyone in line. They look AMAZING, we love them – we were literally crying with laughter at some of the dancing shots!Sent on 08/08/2019

Poppy was our wedding photographer and made everything on the day so easy, she kept everyone in check and made sure we knew what was going on as well. Poppy is so lovely to have around, it just feels like one of your friends talking to you and you can see this come through in all her photos. We are so pleased with how she captured the day and can’t thank her enough for such incredible photos. She captured the mood of the whole day perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for better photos. We are totally in love with all of them and can’t stop looking through them. Thank you so much!Sent on 08/08/2019
