About Me

When I’m not photographing, filming or editing I like to adventure. The lake district is one of my favourite places in the UK, it’s just a truly beautiful place and it’s more than worth the drive. I like trying new things and quite enjoy being crafty even though I’m not very good.

Photography started out as a hobby a number of years ago and I quickly fell in love. I remember photographing my first wedding and i was absolutely terrified but by the end of that first wedding I knew I wanted more, it was so much fun! Filming weddings came a few years after my photography adventure after being asked a number of times it just made perfect sense to add it into my offerings. 

Awards/Published Work

Over the past couple of year’s I have received a number of awards and features for my work.

In November 2016 I was delighted to win the category of “Best Documentary Wedding Photographer UK” in the international wedding photo awards.
