About

about-page-portrait-headshot

So about me. I grew up in London, have an art degree and now I’m a fine art wedding photographer specializing in intimate SF Bay Area weddings. I did a ton of traveling throughout my twenties but now I’m firmly rooted in Oakland, CA. I love living in California!

I left my previous career to go into wedding photography. I’ve always been drawn to smaller weddings where there is a really special connection between everybody present.

From the earliest age, while other girls were dreaming about lavish fairytale weddings, I always wanted a City Hall one (where I come from they happen in Registry Offices, which are typically the ugliest municipal buildings!)

In 2016, my dream came true! My gorgeous husband and I tied the knot with a grand total of 8 people present. A 10 minute ceremony, no stress and no obligations for our guests. It was come as you are. I wore a black dress. That I’d had for over 10 years.

Maybe your wedding has a flowing timeline with plenty of time to chill or party. Perhaps you are getting together for a delicious meal. Maybe you’re eloping and you need an artistic observer to document the first day of being married.
