Yesterday in a lovely location just outside of London, I spent hours wandering around selecting spots for an upcoming photo shoot and found GREAT delight in actually slowing down and taking a breathe and being in nature. These pics just made me smile, the light, the simplicity + the quietness...all super important at this time of year as we start preparing to hibernate + rest + rejuvenate, enjoy x
Excited to be a small business, making connections with my clients who become friends, watching families grow, businesses expand and new ventures develop. Here's to a super weekend and THANK YOU for choosing me xx
Autumn light, the great outdoors.....
This time of year is one of my favourites for stunning light and photographing Beth's gorgeous family on Clapham Common was so much fun!!
Looks like this!
I am BEYOND excited for Tom & Emma's wedding next year!!
A couple weeks ago I met Emma + Tom at their wedding venue and got the chance to explore and discuss photography for their wedding in detail with them. We conjured with sunny weather and shhh...a plan b just in case lol. Choosing spots for their private 'just married' pictures, groups images and pictures with friends and family + discussing how the day is going to flow. I'm so excited for next year, it's going to be gorgeous!!.
A haven of nooks and crannies, we had such fun dodging the rain drops, exploring hidden delights and being creative with costume changes + 'Boggin's' their lovely dog was a super model .
Becomes even more important when you live at other ends of the country!
This image pretty much SUMS UP our photo session - SO MUCH FUN & SO MUCH Laughter!!!
These ladies were so great to photograph and we got to wander around Kensington Gardens (which is one of my favourite places in London). So fantastic to create memories and so much laughter and fun
Thank you so much xx "Just had my first look at our photographs. Love them. So very pleased with them. You are a great photographer xxxxxxx" Kathy Tallentire
November 4th 2017 -
Ottery St. Mary, Devon - Bonfire celebrations
As dusk set in, tar races started, children training to become the barrel racers as they age and quite the commotion of bangs and flames. The picture above at the beginning of the night, crowds gathered in eager anticipation. My mum and I as onlookers have NO idea what to expect apart from a crisp night and fun.
Try something new, clear out the old + make way for the new....

We had so much fun capturing these shots on location for Alitex So much craftsmanship goes into each glass house and so much care and attention is made to the process. It was a joy to work my way around each glass house we visited and discover each detail and something new! Who doesn't love being outside xx
What an awesome year it's been for the OGC!

I'm just so excited!! I took two rolls of film into 'West End Cameras' on Tottenham Court road last weekend and I just got the scanned images back (I'm going in to collect the actual film next week) and it felt like waiting for xmas as a kid as i had NO idea what was on one of the rolls of film and to my surprise along came Brighton - which I haven't been to in ages!!! I cannot even remember taking my holga with me so this is super fun!!
Have a great weekend everyone and revel in the magic xx
This week has been a joy combining my photography with passion for fitness and loved every second on this photo shoot for a Personal Trainer and London Gym. (Plus LOVE the colour of the lipstick here!!)
We've been published!!!
SUPER EXCITED to share this amazing wonderful news!!!
Mark hired me through flytographer to capture his proposal to Molly on their weekend away in London in May.
Post proposal we captured some fun engagement pictures along the south bank and on Waterloo bridge enabling us to include some of our amazing London skyline
I hadn’t been back to London in 10 years, and he knew it was my favorite city in the world. He surprised me two weeks before for my 30th birthday with a trip back over Memorial Day Weekend. We took a redeye over so after exploring a bit, he took a 3 hour nap, completely eliminating any possible ideas from my mind. On a whim he decided that since it was so sunny (which as we all know can be rare for London), that we should go down to the South Bank for drinks before dinner.
Of course, what I thought was last minute, was all part of his master plan. He had been working with photographer to get me to the perfect spot, so Jackie our photographer could document the entire thing. After a failed attempt at a selfie with the sun behind us, a nice women asked if we wanted her to take our picture to capture the lighting.
Turns out the entire thing was a setup and safe to say the rest was magic!

Heart is FULL, LOVE Margate!!!!!!
This past weekend was full of joy and delight as I headed to Margate to photograph the gorgeous wedding of David & Dennise <3 at an 800 year old church followed by roof top cocktails and a super special reception at their own pub! This is just a snippet.....more to follow just as soon as I've finished editing their amazing day xx
Sunny Margate on Monday
On Monday I went down to Margate and had a fabulous afternoon hanging out with these two...wandering around their wedding venues and capturing a bevy of wonderful pictures for their pre wedding pictures!! Super excited for their wedding at the end of the month!!
Friday was definitely FRIYAY.....outdoors all day amongst the sunshine photographing on a commercial shoot with wonderful people and Saturday.....well that brought ALL the feels with an early morning proposal and then venue visit with one of my gorgeous August couples :-)
Waiting with a tea for Saturday morning's proposal in one of my favourite London spots!! It was a gorgeous morning!! A little sprinkling of rain and then a glorious mix of sunshine and a soft cloud...and "she said YES!" so happy!!
Saturday afternoon around Dulwich...awesome collection of street art which I ALWAYS LOVE..this is brilliant and so fun to discover somewhere new. My late August couple live around here and so exploring with them and finding their fav spots was brilliant xx
Training Points, Crystal Palace, July 25th 2017
It's always fun to do a double take when I recognise and see images I've taken #beaming
The gems you discover on a venue visit in a completely new place and with a couple who have a wealth of knowledge......this stained glass window is over 800 years old in a little chapel that escaped Henry VIII's reign + destruction. It's utterly beautiful and breath taking x
Channelling these colours!!!
THESE Colours!!!!! Oh my goodness, what a perfect way to end the week!
Smiling looking at these feminine and strong tones. Shirley's dress just pops off the page and it brings me so much joy to look at this session. Shot around London. <3 London
Have a great weekend everyone! xx
