Happy to Stay Home

We're baaaaaaaack! And we're here to say we are happy to stay home and make more of these for as long as it takes! This one was in Elsie's room and in front of her recently pained rainbow. Weirdly, before Covid struck Elsie had requested a rainbow room and I promised...

Sugar in the Kitchen!

Sugar in the Kitchen!

Elsie and I thought we'd use this weeks video as an opportunity to document one of our favourite things to do...BAKING! The appropriate track for this escapade was clearly going to be "Sugar" by Maroon 5. I mean, his definition of sugar and our definition of sugar...

A Faceless London Wedding

A Faceless London Wedding

Some of my couples prefer to remain completely anonymous, and I'm okay with that. It just means I have to be a little bit more creative in the images that I preview which is fun, and also means that this remains an entirely faceless London wedding. The light and the...

Cattows Farm Tipi Wedding

Cattows Farm Tipi Wedding

One cheeky little scamp told me at this wedding that photography wasn't a real job...and I'm here to argue that not only is it a real job, it's one of the best in the world! Weekends at a Cattows Farm Tipi Wedding prove that! It's a job that allows me to meet new...

Rainy Stamford Wedding – Abbie & Jamie

Okay, so the rain is starting to piss a few people off, me included, but I have to admit to doing a little "whoop" when I got home to see the picture above on the big screen. They might not have ordered a rainy Stamford wedding but that is what they got and sometimes...

This is 30!

This is 30!

I bloody love a shoot just for the heck of it, to celebrate how far you've come, how strong you are, and how amazing you look doing it. And what better way to start your 30's than by channeling the 80's?! I did this shoot at Romy's house the day before her 30th...

Dream Autumnal Wedding at The Woodlands

Dream Autumnal Wedding at The Woodlands

The Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall is one of my favourite alternative venues in this area because for starters is has a blummin' tree house as the honeymoon suite. And who doesn't love a blummin' tree house! Secondly, you can get married outside in a pretty little...
