this is me
IS THE BEST JOB EVER. FACT.
I’m a fun wedding photographer based in north London, but I shoot weddings all over the UK. I live in a wee Edwardian house with my fiancée (yes, I’m also planning my own wedding, we’re in this together!) amongst an assortment of photography props, old cameras, succulents and Lottie the cat – she gets instagrammed a lot. She’s excellent at judging my work but not so great at making the tea.
I’m partial to a bit of cheese music, this being a favourite playlist. I love a bit of travelling about, particularly Irn Bru fuelled expeditions around Scotland. Other things that make me do a happy Carlton dance are big crystals, Lush, chai tea, garden pottering and the 90’s (Golden era of the boyband). I’m basically a human library of Spaced and Friends references and sometimes there’s pink in my hair. I LOVE cats – Pallas’ cat being my favourite because it looks like Dumbledore and a cat smooshed together. See how I work…
Photographing weddings is the best job ever – family, friends and a right old knees up, what could be more fun?! My love of people is what inspired me to become a photographer. I’m not a traditional wedding photographer – I shoot fun doctmentary style with a touch of romance for laid back couples who hate the idea of awkward posing and endless group photos with random cousins they’ve only met once. I blend in with guests and capture the day as it is, from love, laughter and tears to mad faces and air guitars, and pretty much everything in between. Do I sound like your cup of chai? Let’s chat!

“SARAH IS FANTASTIC AT BLENDING IN AS A WEDDING GUEST AND PRODUCING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING PHOTOS. WE WOULD RECOMMEND HER TO EVERYONE WE KNOW – ABSOLUTE STAR!”
My couples value having a good time, and the last thing they want is a photographer who bosses them about, takes over their wedding day and leaves guests standing about for hours on end. Think of me as a good mate with a camera.
As a documentary photographer, I shoot your wedding exactly as it is. It’s the little lost moments tangled up with the big ones and the odd few hilarious bits that make your wedding story unique and true to you both. I love it when couples tell me how happy they were to see a picture of a moment or a detail they’d forgotten about from the day – that’s exactly what I’m here for.
I shoot in an unobtrusive manner – many of my couples have complimented me on my ability to blend in with guests, and move about unnoticed. I am what Phoebe Buffay would refer to as a “lurker”. It’s one of the rare few times being five foot tall comes in handy.
However I don’t just turn up at your wedding, shoot and leave – your wedding is much more than that!
I used to be an Office Manager and Monica Gellar is my spirit animal, so I’m all about organisation. I work hard to help couples build a realistic timetable for wedding photography. It means less stress, less faffing about, and way more party!
Your wedding is all about having a wonderful time with your favourite people. You don’t care about having all the “things” or formalities – you just want to eat, drink and be merry with your best friend and large it up with your mates.
Couples sessions are one of my favourite parts of a wedding day, and while I won’t keep you from your loved ones too long, I will aim to give you laid back and fun images with a little hint of romance, I’m a bit soppy like that. Photos you’ll want to blow up massive on your wall to show off to everyone!
If I sound like your kind of wedding photographer, please drop me a line, I’d love to hear about all you and your big day!
