A couple shoot in Paris | Rhianne + Cam

Rhianne and Cam were married a couple of years ago and I've been lucky enough to photograph them three times. First of all we had an engagement shoot together in Manchester, then I shot their vintage Hollywood-inspired wedding in Newcastle and then they invited me to visit them in Paris for a couple shoot before they moved away. Rhianne had built up a really successful photography business in-between so it was lovely to catch up with her and have a natter about how awesomely she'd been doing and generally hanging out with them again was wonderful. It's always ace to keep in touch with my couples and what happens after their wedding, and I love having the chance to photograph the next step they take together. And… I suppose it's especially wonderful if those steps happen to be around such an iconic and beautiful city. We found so many charming spots for photos around Paris, finding cute doorways and quiet side streets, as well as embracing the crowds at the Sacré-Coeur. If you're interested in booking a couple shoot with me, then head to my little shop and buy a gift card…. though if you fancy taking me on an adventure further afield like these guys did then you'll need to cover travel costs too. But hey, Paris is only a train ride away.

Naomi + Stephen | Litton, Derbyshire Wedding

Litton was one of the first places in Derbyshire I ever saw, when I was a teenager before I moved here. I fell in love with the Peak District back then… the dry stone walls… the little villages… I don't think those things will ever lose their charm for me. After I moved to Derbyshire some of my closest school friends lived in Litton so from time to time we'd end up there… it set the scene for adventures in the countryside, first kisses and hi-jinx (did I actually just say hi-jinx… jeeze, I feel about a hundred).

So when one of my old friends was getting married there I couldn't wait to be part of it.

It's a funny thing when you hit that age when your friends are getting married and having babies. Because you were young together… and when you spend time with those people it feels like you're right back there. I remember huddling up with Naomi in corners of our school to share angst about boys and then, suddenly there I was watching her cradle her baby while she prepared for her wedding day.

And what a day it was. I mean… it tipped it down and the wind howled, but how incidental that seems looking back. Naomi and Stephen's wedding was ace and packed with love and silliness and cake (a LOT of cake) and I bloody loved it. Here's some of my favourite photos from the day.

A family photoshoot in Derbyshire

"Let the wild rumpus start!"

I had so much fun on this shoot. Derbyshire has so much to offer… There's so much to explore so it's the perfect place for a family photo session! Whenever I photograph kids I love letting them run wild so that their personalities have permission to shine through. I also always make sure I give parents a chance to get some shots too, because sometimes life with kids can be a bit of a blur and you forget to give yourself a bit of love too. If you fancy coming to see me for a photoshoot with your wild things then get in touch, I also sell gift cards in my little shop!
