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.
With 14 years of photographing weddings full time, I am an internationally travelled destination wedding photographer who calls the NW of Ireland 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.
I have a daugther Sophie, Step-Daughter Jenny and yorkshire Terrier, Milo, who all keep me busy.

My daughter Sophie and her sister Jenny are my life. I love spending time with the girls from lounging at home to heading out on an adventure it is always fun!
I love ticking travel destinations and experiences off my bucket list. Next I want to visit Bali, New Zealand, Japan and Santorini
Whether it’s Nespresso, Nero or Starbucks, getting together for coffee is always fun and I couldn't start my day or live without it (dramatic I know!).
I love interiors, minimalism and making my home a cosy and welcoming spot.
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!
