WELL HELLO THERE!
It’s a little strange, but most of my inspiration comes from punk rock and grunge music – where a story or an idea simply flashes into my head. It was punk and performing arts that inspired me to shoot in a fun reportage style when it came to weddings. Often I like to give my own little sprinkle of quirks to give the photos that extra bit of fun and realism – from custom Polaroid frames, to popping candy, to trashing the dress, to bridesmaids beating the ushers at handling the sharp taste of sourball sweets, to recreating iconic film scenes – you name it!
My work has been featured in Rock and Roll Bride, Quirky Weddings and Unconventional Wedding. I occasionally collaborate on more fashion based shoots with Lily Jones Events.
I live right on the cusp of Southfleet in Kent, where I'm usually found editing in the office with David Bowie soothing my sanity – with a pyramid of stolen tea mugs next to me. In my spare time I perform on stage and play bass guitar. I also love to attend conventions such as MCM Comic Con, where I have many fun shoots on the side with cosplayers.
You may have guessed but as much as I love my rock music, nothing can beat sitting in a cool cafe in Camden, sipping coffee with some good Jazz playing.
I dream of one day going to Salem or owning a house in Devon.
Aside from Weddings, the loves in my life are Blackadder, builders tea, gin and anything tartan. I also work as a fashion and portrait photographer, and am currently travelling around the UK for an ongoing project, celebrating the revival of Punk, Goth and New Romantic subculture.
