If you're looking for unposed, relaxed wedding photography, I may be just the girl you're looking for...

With well over a decade photographing weddings, I bring experience and passion to every event I photograph. I strongly believe that no wedding day should be spent mindlessly posing for photos: it's your day to enjoy! This is why my style is incredibly relaxed and unobtrusive; I pride myself on creating artistic and beautiful images without taking over. If you've ever come across my work before, you may know I also own an unposed family photography studio in Torbay, specialising in- you've guessed it- unposed baby and family photography. For me, it really is so incredibly important to me that my work is authentic, raw and captures real emotion. Everything I do is about just this ethos.

I have photographed over two hundred weddings, and trained with some of the most amazing photographers around the country. I never stop learning and trying to improve my skills, and I work incredibly hard to make sure that my clients get the absolute best service and products that they'll love for years to come.

Finally, I only shoot a limited number of weddings a year: this ensures that I can give each and every one of my couples my full attention. I cover all over Devon, Cornwall and beyond, and will most definitely consider destination weddings (I hear the Caribbean is great for weddings...). My packages are all very reasonably priced and will not break the bank and I'm happy to offer shorter packages if you don't require a full day of coverage. Most locations within Devon and Cornwall are covered with no travel costs.

I love to chat to anyone and everyone, so please get in touch if you'd like to talk more about what I do and what I can offer.

"I just can't even. Amazing. You were so calm and knowledgable on the day, and I don't know how many other photographers babysit the bride's kids during the meal but you certainly are multi-talented! Thank you again, you were fab and we couldn't recommend you enough."
