So about me. I grew up in London, have an art degree and now I’m a photodocumentary/fine art-style wedding photographer specializing in artistic and alternative Bay Area weddings. I did a ton of traveling throughout my late teens and twenties but now I’m 33 and firmly rooted in Oakland, CA. I love living in the States!
I’d always planned to go into wedding photography since leaving my previous career. What I love about weddings is that each one is unique and expresses what’s important to the couple. So much care has gone into every single decision – the invitations, jewelry, table linens, cake toppers – and I lovingly preserve all of those beautiful things so that you and future generations can enjoy them long after the day’s over.
I also love photographing weddings which are a break from the norm. If you’re more the type of couple that make your own traditions rather than follow them then let’s talk, I’d love to hear about the wedding you have planned!
Most of all it’s the emotion of the wedding experience that gets me every time. Strip away the trappings and it’s essentially two people promising the rest of their lives to one another, in front of all the people that mean most to them. And I get to photograph all the joy and craziness! That’s pretty special, I think!
