Hello out there!

Looking forward to meeting you

I’ve always loved taking photographs and especially people. Whether you need me to capture your wonderful vintage wedding day or record fabulous photographic memories of your family, I would love the opportunity to create great images for you. Based in Lancashire, I also cover Cumbria, Cheshire, West Yorkshire, Merseyside and Manchester. I will also consider travel further afield, including any destination weddings you may be planning. California anyone, I know some pretty amazing locations!
I strive to capture the true essence of an event whether it be a fantastic wedding or fun family portrait shoot, I strive for that natural relaxed look that shows you at your very best! I combine my own creative traditional style with stunning reportage photography giving you a memorable set of images telling the story of your incredible day, wherever it may be! Feel free to get in touch with your wedding plans, then maybe we could meet up and chat about the details of your special day over a cuppa or two!

When I down tools


The Lake District

Being fans of the great outdoors this has been our stomping ground for many years. We started out as walkers on the fells right up to scaling rock faces and even the odd winter climb or two on our favourite, Helvellyn. Come rain or shine, its a breathtaking location with something new to discover on every visit. I’ve still got plenty of those Wainwrights to do too.


Family time

We just love our little dynamo of a daughter and the three of us always love a trip to the local park or down to the beach for a spot of sandcastle making. When at home Netflix is a big hit with everyone too and I’m not sure how we did without it. Even little Holly and Harry the crazy Goldfish agree too.

IMG_4234Camera stuff

The latest professional gear has come a long way since my Minolta film camera I bought second hand for a trip to Canada many years ago. I’m a bit of camera geek and I’m always clocking anybody else with a DSLR and striking up a conversation with them and what setup they are using. But nothing beats getting some new shiny camera items from the postman.

In Wedding Photography I am blessed to have such wonderful clients and can’t wait to get to know you better, chat to you soon!

I’m always looking to capture those heart stopping moments, find that epic angle or record some unseen gem. I love what I do and can’t wait to be there on your big day!
