A little bit about me...

Life of a North Wales wedding photographer

I became a full time photographer in 2014. Since then I have captured hundreds of weddings in many different locations and settings, covering a wide range of styles.

I absolutely love being a North Wales wedding photographer and I am so grateful to all of my previous couples for letting me be a part of their day.

"I strongly believe that everybody should get the same high quality service regardless of budget"

When I'm not capturing photos (or editing them!), I enjoy spending time with my little family and going on an adventure, taking photos of landscapes around North Wales, especially in Snowdonia national park.

I also love travelling, movies, gaming and a good box set on Netflix!

Have a look through my blog and read about some previous celebrations that I have captured. Or alternatively, head on over to my Instagram page, where I post regular updates.

I have had the pleasure of capturing hundreds of amazing marriages across the UK, including Snowdonia, Chester, Wirral and Flintshire to name a few. I have even had the honour of documenting Elopements across Europe. So whether it's a small family occasion in a marquee or a massive celebration in a stately home like Château Rhianfa, I will be there to capture all the special parts of the day.

I have specialised in North Wales wedding photography for over 8 years now and I regularly photograph at venues in North Wales and Cheshire, so chances are that I have worked at your venue in the past!
