SNAP photography festival in Photo Professional

Photo Professional feature on SNAP photography festival. Photo by Marianne Taylor.
I’ve feel slightly embarrassed that I completely forgot to share this piece of press at the time it was published! I’m talking at a super exciting new photography festival called SNAP next month, and Photo Professional magazine ran a brilliant article on it a few months back. It was a nice surprise to see my image used full spread at the beginning of the piece (and to be referred to as ‘big name in the field! Ha.). I’m so excited to be a part of this new endeavour, and I’m sure SNAP will be a roaring success and that there will be many more to come in the future!

Preston Family | Together

I first met Rachael and Dan four years ago at their London engagement session. I can’t quite believe how the years have flown by! It was such a pleasure to get together again, this time for a Family Together Session in Bushy Park, with the addition of the adorable Noah. We tried not to let the freezing drizzle which we call spring bother us, and had a lovely time in the end, albeit some red noses!

Aniko & Anthony | Together

Aniko & Anth we our real couple at a recent mentoring session, and the four of us had such a good time that our time together pretty much turned into a full-on Together Session. Even though it was still a little bit chilly, you could definitely start sensing spring in the air, and we even found the first of the blossom! Here are some of the photos I took while demonstrating, before my mentee took over. Thank you Aniko & Anth! x

Pen & Cam | Together

Here’s a session that’s super close to my heart. Not only do I completely adore Pen & Cam, but I got to capture their Anniversary Together Session at Pentire Head in Newquay, Cornwall, which is one of the most beautiful places on earth (and soon to be right at my doorstep!). The wind might have been bracing, but these two rays of happiness brought their own microclimate to this portrait shoot, challenging even the sun to come out to play. This is the kind of photography I could do all day every day with a huge smile on my face.

Cornwall, we’re on our way!

Photographer in Cornwall.

Once in a while you come across a place where you feel like your soul is at home. You might be thousands of miles from where you ever thought you’d end up, but you just feel at peace. For me that feeling has always been strongest in Cornwall. The wild ocean and the rugged, majestic landscape soothes me in a way that no other place on earth does. Over the years I’ve returned many times, often in winter, the wilder the better!

It’s been a day dream of ours to one day live in Cornwall. To be fair, it’s always been a more of a retirement plan due to the distance and the poor job opportunities for my husband. But sometimes, when you dream hard enough, and when you’re brave enough to ask out loud, magical things can happen.

Due to a combination of circumstances we figured out how we might be able to do this, right now, rather than in the distant future. It’s crazy how fast the momentum picks up speed after a decision is made. Our home is on the market and we’re getting ready to go. I’m sure it will take a little while to get everything in order, and the restlessness is building… I just want to be there already.

Despite the anxious wait, my heart sings with joy every time I think about it. Yes, we are coming, my beloved Cornwall! While it might take a little while for us to get there, I want to start reaching out to those of you out in the South West. If you, or your friends are getting married in Cornwall, do reach out. If you are a local vendor who wants to get together to make things happen do get in touch. If you want to hang out and have coffee or plan shoots or work with me in other ways in Cornwall let me know. I cannot wait to get down there and start my life!

P.s. Those of you not in Cornwall, don’t worry. We are planning to have a base close to London as well, so I will continue with my London (and destination) shoots and weddings, too.
