"the photos are amazing"
Nicola and Doug
I take stylish, authentic shots by being flexible and fun. We are increasingly surrounded by beautiful images of brides, families, products, lifestyles. For me, this aesthetic can lead us away from the true purpose of photos, which I believe is to capture moments and memories. I'm here to help you combine the two and get some fabulous pictures of your special day.
I've been taking pictures since 2006. I've lived in many different countries and had lots of adventures, but for a long time I struggled to find meaning in my photography. It wasn't until I lost my mum and had my beautiful daughter that it all started to make sense to me, I now live in Huddersfield with my family and love helping people document their love and relationships.

More about my style
I'm friendly! I like a chat. I'm told I am good at putting people at ease, making them feel comfortable and relaxed. I'll be the one to ask your mum about her shoes, chat to Uncle Bob about his camera and snap your little niece as she checks herself out in a mirror.
I look to some of the old photographic masters as my inspiration such as Cartier Bresson and Robert Capa. I try to draw on timeless photography conventions in my work rather than current trends. So that when you look back on the photos in years to come they won't look dated or old-fashioned.
I like to take a mixture of posed shots and more natural 'reportage' style shots. Throughout all my work, though, I'm looking to illustrate those genuine moments of emotion and connection. Photos that tell the true story of you and your loved ones.
