About Me


This is the story of how we meet….

About Me:

I have got the best job in the world. Every day, I capture memories for wonderful people in beautiful Perthshire & across Scotland.
The themes in my life and my photography are fun, creativity and nature.

When I’m not behind the lens, you’ll find me out and about exploring. I love discovering spectacular landscapes, stunning buildings and breath-taking wildlife. My favourite place in the world are the mountains of Nepal. The people, the scenery and the physical and mental challenge made me realise that I am stronger than I ever dreamed I could be.

Closer to home, Scotland is my happy place. Full of dramatic scenery, picturesque waterfalls and amazing people. Swimming in cold water is my escape from life and my chance to reconnect.

My experiences make me value every day and see the lighter side of life. The fun side to my personality will be reflected in the images I produce for you. Photographs should remind you of the happiest parts of your day. To catch those special moments you might have missed. Like when the groom shared a joke with the flower girl. The hilarity during your lifestyle shoot when the wind nearly swept you off your feet. The emotional moment when your two year old takes Grandma’s hand and tenderly kissed her on the cheek.

And yet, perfect photos also take some thought. This is where my creativity comes in. An autumnal theme, a pillow fight or a splash of colour could enhance your lifestyle shoot.

At your wedding, I will use the scenery and guests as props to make sure that your images are like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
