SHE SAID YES!!!!!!!!
Ed popped the question to Stephanie on a chilly November morning in front of the main fountain in the Italian Gardens, London and it was so fun to capture this amazing moment for them both. Stephanie had absolutely no idea what was about to unfold and after she said ‘yes’ we spent some time creating gorgeous engagement pictures for them to cherish and look back on.
SUPER CONGRATULATIONS Ed & Stephanie, here’s to a lifetime of magical moments xx
Opening & Closing 2018 with love
To start and end a year with beautiful proposals is, for me, epic, delightful, heart warming, magical + a blessing. It bookends a year in the most romantic way but there’s something about coming full circle that I just love + I am super grateful for.
Jay & Sheena at Kew Gardens
Michael & Lauren in London
Wishing everyone a magical 2019 full of happiness, love, smiles + delight! xx
Farnham Castle - love the drama of the main room, first dance and a touch of smouldering smoke
Jon & Izabela's wedding at Farnham Castle was divine and I particularly love these shots from their first dance, swoshing, sweeping drama #love #weddingday
August 16th 2016 Destination Wedding: Florida * Happy 2nd (cotton) Anniversary Gilly & Jon!!
Rajan & Janaki June 16th, 2018
Oh...My....Goodness......I am SO EXCITED to share Janaki's & Rajan's wedding at Woolwich Town Hall. It was beyond beautiful!!! The interior of the town hall is spectacular and the colour and vibrance of the decor totally complimented the ceremony and post wedding pictures!!! <3
On Friday June 15th in the middle of the gorgeous Kent countryside, Tori & James tied the knot! Such a gorgeous day, so many special moments and attention to detail and beautiful colour scheme that I am thrilled to share a sneak peek from their day!!
A stunning colour scheme included soft minty/pastel green of the bridesmaids dresses with hints of white and pink in the bouquets and looked striking amongst the amazing outdoor space created for this special day.
A super relaxed afternoon ceremony in front of the most spectacular tree I think I've seen! Both Tori & James are fitness guru's and LOVE the outdoors so it made sense to tie th knot outside with all their family and friends.
Roof Top drinks and canapés followed the ceremony with an array of delicious cocktails and tons of laughter filling the air.
Congratulations James & Tori xx
A gorgeous Venue Visit with undulating views and the feel of nature was super fun with these two lovebirds!!!
TONS of laughter and awesome chatter - fitness tips (James was doing 2 mega spartan races over the weekend!!!) So I was gaining lots of amazing insight into nutrition and performance as they are both fitness pro's :-) I cannot wait for June + their wedding day!!!! xx
New Year's Eve 2017.......Kew Gardens, London.
Love was in the air!!!
When Jay emailed me explaining he was planning to propose to his girlfriend Sheena, I was so thrilled! I'm always hugely delighted to receive an email or call along these lines and this was extra special because I had met Jay through photographing two of his cousins proposals and engagement parties.
We set about making a plan! This past New Year's Eve had an invigorating briskness to the air (or a chilliness depending upon your sensibility lol) + Sheena had NO CLUE what was about to unfold when she and Jay walked along by the Plant House. I love the shock + delight in these images and afterwards we created some wonderful memories around the grounds...perfect overcast soft light mixed with a few sips of prosecco and fun + delight! xx
VERY excited my new postcards have just dropped
+ they are GORGEOUS...even if I do say so myself lol
I'm celebrating February and the month of love over on my Instagram page!!
I see so many forms of love every time I pick up my camera that I wanted to share this throughout February + each day I'm posting a new image + adding love to my 'instagram story'. From weddings across the spectrum to friendship - it's all pretty magical!
When you're one of the few to know a proposal is coming...(it's an amazing feeling!!)
Last February I ran a photography workshop + my student shared with me he was going to propose to his girlfriend. I was beyond excited!! I love the excitement and nerves of knowing a proposal is coming and the planning and the details and the ring and of course the "YES"!!
So fast forward many months from our conversation and knowing they are in New York City I smile wondering how things are going and IF anything has happen when I receive a photo and this message below!!!
I screen shot the message because I was smiling and beaming from ear to ear at the picture they sent me + the joy + excitement on their faces AND then because they asked if I would be their photographer right away!!
+ here I am writing this post to share with you just what that meant.
I see love in so many different ways every time I pick up my camera and photograph people, you can't not. Love varies day to day and person to person but it's there + it's magic + to be asked to be someones wedding photographer is pure brilliance. It's one of my most favourite things ever I LOVE WEDDINGS!!
To be asked to be their photographer right after their proposal is beyond memorable. Being in on a proposal plan is enchanting and thrilling all at the same time. To be trusted with that information on something so personal + something life changing always makes me tingle.
I've been writing 3 things I'm grateful for each night, not because I need to lift myself out of the January blues, although that would be an excellent way if I had them, but because it's important to remember and be appreciative of the people in our lives, the part we play in theirs + the footprints we leave as we go x
Congratulations if you just got engaged over Christmas or have started the New Year with all systems go to organise your BIG Day!
I wanted to share this pricing visual if you're on the hunt for a photographer and you're finding your feet with what to budget for with the different services and professionals that combine to create your wedding day + if you have any questions just shout! x
OMG!!!!! OMG!! OMG!!!
YES - Doing cartwheels all over the place :-) My images from Mark & Molly's amazing proposal in London has been selected and included in The 10 Most Epic Proposals From Around The World in 2017 over on the Flytographer blog.....wooooohhhhooooooo - YES YES! What an awesome between xmas + new year surprise <3 :-) xx
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
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 .
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!
