How would you describe your style?

As a female wedding photographer passionate about color and candid moments, my style is vibrant, authentic, and bold. I specialize in capturing the genuine emotions and unique quirks of each couple's special day, focusing on unposed, spontaneous moments against lively, colorful backdrops. My approach is personalized and unintrusive, ensuring your wedding photos not only pop with energy but also resonate with the true essence of your relationship. If you're drawn to vivid storytelling and cherish the authenticity of candid moments, my photography might just be the perfect match for your celebration.

What do you love about weddings?

As a female wedding photographer with a photojournalist background, what I love most about weddings is the opportunity to capture raw, unfiltered moments that tell a story. My passion lies in observing and preserving the genuine emotions, from joyful laughter to tearful vows, through my candid-style photography. Each wedding is a unique narrative of love and connection, and being able to document these stories as they naturally unfold is truly fulfilling. It's not just about taking pictures; it's about capturing memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. My job allows me to witness and celebrate the most intimate moments of love and companionship, and there's nothing more rewarding than that.

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

When searching for your perfect wedding photographer, my advice is to focus on finding someone whose style resonates with your vision for your big day. Look for a photographer whose portfolio reflects the emotions, moments, and aesthetics you envision for your own wedding. It’s essential that their photographic style, whether it be candid, traditional, or artistic, aligns with how you want to remember your day.

Don’t just consider the visuals; think about the personality fit. Your photographer will be with you through many intimate, emotional moments, so it's important that you feel comfortable and connected with them. A good rapport can significantly influence the authenticity and beauty of your photos.

Lastly, communicate openly about your expectations, desired outcomes, and any specific moments you want captured. This ensures you’re on the same page and helps the photographer tailor their approach to meet your needs. Remember, the best photographer for you is someone who not only captures stunning images but also tells your unique love story in a way that feels true to who you are as a couple.

Your Travel policy?

My travel policy is straightforward and flexible, aimed at making it easy for you to have me capture your big day, no matter the location. Based in Bristol, I'm excited to travel both domestically and internationally for weddings. For events beyond a 30-mile radius from my base, I charge a travel fee that covers transportation, accommodation, and related expenses, always seeking the most cost-effective solutions for my clients.

I’m open to traveling to any destination to document your wedding. To ensure everything is smoothly arranged, I handle all travel logistics myself and ask that we finalize travel plans at least 3 month in advance. My aim is to keep the process as stress-free for you as possible, focusing on capturing your special moments wherever they unfold. Let's chat about making your dream wedding photos a reality, no matter where in the world it takes us.
