Lucy and Ryne’s Engagement Shoot

We headed to Waterloo Park to take the photographs for Lucy and Ryne’s engagement shoot. They had an idea of the sort of thing they were after, using Pinterest for research, we created a relaxed, fun and romantic look for their shoot. They brought with them a selection of props to use throughout and Lucy decided to wear two outfits - a dressed up look and a more casual look. It was lots of fun taking these photos and I’m very excited about being a part of their wedding in June! Here’s some of my favourites!

Website Updated!

Hey folks! You may have noticed that things look slightly different round here. I’ve decided to update my website, giving it a whole new look. I’ve added some new photos, new services are now available on my “Prices” page and there is now an Instagram section on my “About” page… so go check it out! 

I’d love to hear what you think, so get in touch to let me know your thoughts about the new look :)


My most recent portrait series “Ultraviolet” stems from my love for colour. I tend to use a lot of rich, dark colours in my work, but this time I felt like I needed a change. I use Pinterest as a main source of inspiration (I LOVE PINTEREST!) and over the last couple of months I started a board called “Colour”. I found a lot of interesting pins featuring purples, in all sorts of tones and combining them with other colours to contrast and compliment. Purple is a colour I don’t use very often, even though it is a colour I like a lot. 

When editing the portraits I used my action “silver tones” to remove the warmth from the photos. I also changed the colour of my hear to silver/violet so my blonde hair wasn’t so intense. I kept telling myself I could be a female Gandalf! I then pulled out magenta and blues by using Selective Colour and Gradient Map to give it that violet hint. 

Here’s an example of a before and after. As you can see I retouched the skin and got rid of annoying hairs. I also brought out the make-up more.
