Moments spill from a life lived. The time I fell off the bike with my brother and needed stitches. The love and loss of a mother and father. The first kiss in a game of spin the bottle. The disappointment at failed exams. The achievement of passing them and going on to a marketing degree at University in Edinburgh. The year studying and making friends in Sweden. Buying my first house in Belfast. Moving to London and working in the sky (28 floors up in the Gherkin).
Taking my first photography course and finding my passion for capturing life better. The invitation to shoot a wedding in Australia, and the moment on Tom and Lorelie's wedding day that I decided I wanted to be a photographer for the rest of my life. Falling in love, marrying my soulmate and meeting my daughter Sophie for the first time!
With over a decade of experience, I am an internationally travelled destination wedding photographer who calls Derry~Londonderry home.
I have named as one of the top wedding photographers in the UK by Photo Professional Magazine and have been published by some of the industry's top publications including Brides, Getting Married In Northern Ireland, Wedding Journal and many more.

Whether it’s Nespresso or Starbucks, getting together for coffee is always fun.
My heart lies in America, I remember trips with my mum to New York and proposing in Malibu.
I love giving back to the photography industry through education and love getting to speak at conferences around the world.
I love gadgets and have my home smart enabled so I can control everything from my iPhone.
My parents ran a cinema when I was growing up – losing yourself in a movie is the best.
I’ve been known to play Coldplay on repeat, I proposed on a hilltop with a guy playing Viva La Vida.
