“at every point Shona was in the perfect place to capture the moment and we barely noticed”
Welcome to my wedding photography. If you love natural photos I am your ideal choice.
Photographing in an unobtrusive and discrete way, finding flattering portraits, and following
the day the way you planned and imagined it: allows you the freedom to relax knowing that the 
photography is taken care of. 
Not forgetting the details as we go along, I work in a quiet an efficient way to record everything that
matters to you.
We chat as much as you need before the day so that you are confident of what to expect, and how
my photography will complement your plans. We plan where and when we will take the 
group photos and I have lots of experience which means this part of the day runs
smoothly and surprisingly quickly without any rushing. I can offer support and suggestions 
if you want to discuss ideas as I have the experience of 100’s of weddings to draw upon.
Your photos will be edited and available to preview on line within days . 
My ‘natural’ eye’ is a lucky gift, and I have developed my skills too, but equipment
also matters! So the Canon 5D mark 11 and the L series lens, and full back up kit too.

My studio has indoor space lit without flash so it's very gentle for children and adults alike! We also venture outside into the beautiful countryside here so that you can all chill out and enjoy some quality time and I have endless opportunities for quiet unobtrusive photos.


is varied ranging from shows, events, meetings, portraits, buildings, interiors, products. Quotes are based on a detailed brief and the agreed time to cover this and include the photos on CD with the copyright license you need. My prices are very fair for this too and I often have regular work for the same clients.


I took an HNC in Photography in 1998 and loved it all! Gaining lots of Distinctions I photographed my first wedding whilst still at college. Previously I had spent 16 years as a professional advisor and so my social skills were developed, assessed and evaluated continuously. A fantastic foundation for my new career. Years later and I am still developing but aim to stay true to what I do best.

I love photography for the miracle it is. The chance to keep a little bit of our lives for ever.
