Jess and Robbie’s Wedding



In June I had the pleasure of photographing the Burn’s wedding at Wallsend Hall in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. The bride looked amazing in vintage lace and hair and flowers by Petals Pins and Powder  . We were very lucky with the weather and the venue was just lovely. I wish Jess and Robbie all the best in their married life. For more about my wedding packages visit my website

Sarah and Ian Engagement shoot

I’ve been booked to photograph Sarah and Ian’s wedding in September and so they thought they’d also go for a pre-wedding shoot. Sarah is the sister of the amazing photographer Christeeny so it was a real honor to be asked. Sarah and Ian are a fantastic couple full of fun and energy and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding!

Rebecca and Will engagement shoot

Back in deepest darkest January I shot this engagement shoot for Rebecca and Will. Rebecca had her make up done by Kitty ; Will experienced Kitty’s groom’ing service which is a quick grooming session to make sure gentlemen are looking their best.

We were losing the light a little as it was around when the sun was setting at 4pm but I love the effect we got. I really enjoy doing couple shoots as I adore being part of people’s love stories.





Clare and Marley

Just a quick blog update tonight. Back in December Toni bought her sister Clare a voucher for a photoshoot. We recently got around to organising it and the results we lovely. Clare and her son Marley were lovely to take photos of as well as Marley’s auntie Toni. It was a lovely summery day and as always Saltwell park was a great setting for the shoot.

Yarrr Josephine and John’s Pirate Wedding

Last year I had the pleasure of photographing my friends pirate themed wedding. Josephine and I met many years when we were both models going to an award party type thing and we both spent the evening doing Zoolander impressions and since then we’ve been great friends. I was so touched that she would ask me to shoot their wedding. Being an ex model she had the pick of the photographers so it ended up being one person shot the ceremony, I did the couple portraits and another shot the reception. I absolutely loved their outfits and attention to detail. Jo now works as a make up artist so her make up was on point and she looked amazing. I definitely loved the opportunity to photograph a more unusual wedding! Jo and John have been so supportive and such good friends to me, it was one of the loveliest moments of my life to see them married. Happy anniversary my friends!

A while ago I worked with a team of my favourite creatives to make a series of pictures based on the Greek Goddess Persephone. I wanted to explore the seasonal aspect of the Greek myth, how she made the world come alive through summer and spring and then when she left for the underworld the world slowly withered and died as her mother Demeter mourned her loss. The pictures are simple beauty shoots using exquisite headpieces from Kathryn Russell. Kitty Kerry did the make up and Tony Arts created the hair styles. I shot them very simply using a ring Light and an open aperture. The black background was intentional to isolate the subject and give it deep shadows and a sense of depth. The model is Jennifer Brown of Tyne Tees

I used music to inspire me for this shoot namely Ed Harcourt’s ‘Come into my dreamland’ EP


Legend Bridal: Fable and Promise

Last year I had the pleasure of working with Legend Bridal on an editorial shoot. I’d been meaning to edge my way into more Bridal and wedding photography and their designs really appealed to me. I used the Autumn sun to make really warm pretty images but also had some rain and a very stormy sky to contend with. I love the feminine yet quirky dresses and headpieces, they really complimented the models too. My only regret with this shoot is that I didn’t have my 90mm or 50mm 1.4 which I think would have really added to the shoot.

Models are Sophie Nattrass and Jennifer Brown of Tyne Tees Models
