Hi! I’m a Norfolk Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer, working all over Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
I live in a really pretty village in Norfolk, not far off the A11 (so I can scoot to most places fast!), in an old, beamed cottage (named Cosy Corner - and it is!). It’s a nightmare to dust and creaks wherever you walk, but at least my kids will never be able to sneak in too late :D My son, who’s at the UEA and daughter who’s doing her GCSE’s (yikes) both live with me. Oh and a huge, fat ginger cat and a delicate tabby cat, supposedly siblings, but fight like mad – pretty normal then!
Things I LOVE
Taking photos - My biggest hobby has ALWAYS been photography, from when I was right young (yes I know everyone says that, but it’s true, honest).
Reading: I love reading real books (Kindles are for holiday packing), the more random the fiction, the thicker the book, the better - has anyone else but me read Stephen Donaldson's Thomas Covenant series?!
WATER! I love water – being on it, near it and even in it, in the summer, paddling rivers on my kayak.
Spring – I wish it was spring ALL year round, except for when it’s autumn & everything’s so colourful, and winter, when it’s frosty & snowy...
GAME OF THRONES, oh yep (and also Stranger Things, Riverdale, Outlander, Lucifer, Santa Clarita Diet, Humans, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Grimm, The 100 ... I sense a theme here?)
Exploring - on foot if I can, in a soft top car preferably ;)
Sparkly things - just call me Mrs Magpie
Stationery & stuff - MAMBI - look at your peril!
What makes me great to have at YOUR wedding?
Well, I'm extremely sneaky, but in a nice way - I'm still waiting for someone to invent a Cloak of Invisibility but in the meantime I'll shoot through foliage and round corners and generally blend into the background so you won't know I'm there...
I've BAGS of experience and nothing fazes me - really, nothing - and I have to be honest and say semi naked groomsmen getting ready are one of the perks of the job ;)
I never want to give up shooting weddings because I love them so much - if I'm still doing this in my 60's I'll be delighted ;)
The professional me:
I work very professionally and discretely on the day – I document the day naturally as it unfolds and your guests will barely know I’m there, but I’ll get great photos of them. I’m definitely not a bossy photographer, and can usually get those groups together without having to raise my voice (I just let someone else do the job for me – that’s what best men are for!). All the equipment I use is of high professional standard and I am also fully insured and have multiple back up procedures.
