Camera and Kit is an offbeat bohemian adventure in travel, film, nostalgia, beauty, and emotive photography.  My camera is my side kick.  My adventurous co-conspirator on a journey that began when I shot my first wedding in 2002.

I adore photography.  I do.  To quote Vilem Flusser in a round about sort of way, "we see the world through photographs" and that's what I do.  See your wedding through imagery. I hold a Master's Degree in Digital Photography from a London university and I am currently a Doctoral Research student undertaking a PhD in photography. 

I have been privileged to have photographed weddings of many wander-lust couples. Some of my previous clients have included society weddings, but I endeavour to treat every couple I work with as partners in crime. Co-conspirators on a photographic adventure.  I want to work with you to tell the detailed story of your wedding with passion, creativity, wit, grace, humour, and warmth.

For me, it’s all about capturing the moment – there’s no staging and no re-runs.  It's completely free spirited.

I am unique in the wedding industry.

In addition to my extensive experience as a commercial photographer,  I am an award winning and published wedding photographer.  In addition I hold a Masters Degree in Digital Photography with other university qualifications in curating, archiving and conservation plus graphic design and bookbinding. I am currently PhD doctoral researcher in photography - so it is fair to say that photography is my life

I am also a specialist in luxury destination multi-day weddings. For when, one day for your wedding is simply not enough.

Well, what does this mean to you?

It means I retain full creative control and offer everything from shooting to album/book design and print production in-house - no outsourcing.

My belief that digital photography is not infinite memory and, that we are in the midst of a ‘digital dark age’ inspires me to print every day.   We are in an uncertain era in which many photographs of loved ones have been lost as they have been rendered inaccessible by the swift obsolescence of the software or the loss of memory sticks and discs.

So,  because of my fear of this destructive digital dark age, I am a photographic purist when it comes to printing, and you will see this reflected in my packages. I create romantic nostalgia for you and your loved ones. I create histories and hand me down heirlooms and memories.

I try to build up a personal relationship with each of the couples I work with, and each wedding I shoot involves many hours of editing (no “in-camera” editing for me). I believe that this approach is integral to producing the best possible photographs (both digital and film) for each couple, but it does, unfortunately, mean that I can only take on a very limited number of bookings each year.
