This provided me with a wonderful first hand opportunity to learn over the years, and to adapt that knowledge into my own photographic style. I travel a lot for both work and holidays, and have always enjoyed capturing images of the landscapes, scenery and people I meet there - around 2016 I realised that more and more I was seeing and expressing the world through a camera lens, and I decided to take that love and turn it into a career.
We love vibrant colour, candid, bokeh, flare, romance and our photography style reflects exactly that. We love to capture the moment of fun and laughter - you doing your thing. We try our best to make sure that you are feeling relaxed, pressure free from intense poses, enjoying your loved one's company and just having fun.
" My goal isn't just to create beautiful images, but also to capture something that is meaningful to you. A memory that you will forever treasure."
Photography formed part of my course at university, we used traditional film cameras... developing the film in the dark room, and watching the images that you last saw through the lens come to life on paper. Later, as a makeup artist who has worked with many brilliant photographers, I took every chance to act as their assistant - helping with lighting, capturing ‘behind the scene’ images and working on set.
Destination weddings and elopement are perfect for those with an adventurous soul. The most popular reason that most couple decide to get hitched abroad is so they can get away from the gloomy and unpredictable British weather. But also take the beautiful scenery of wonderful foreign land into account, the architecture, the heat, the culture, or the beach and the tropical island, isn't all these reason enough to make you want to say I DO abroad?
Price of my packages remain the same at home (UK) or abroad, the only additional cost would be travel & 2 or 3 nights accommodation depend on destination. I would be more than happy to work with you both to keep this cost effective! So no hidden extra cost!
My approach to photographing your wedding... "I believe that every couple has their very own love story to tell."
You are the heart and soul of your story, my ultimate goal is to capture memories, the authentic love and special connection between my couples and their loved ones. I want you to look back on this special day and remember those magical moments, the anticipation, the emotional moment when you said "I do", the mood, the laughter, the tears, the scent of your beautiful bouquet, the taste of your champagne and all the fun you had. All those memorable moments - let me freeze them all for you.
Are we sing the same tune?!
If you are looking for a natural, relax, non-traditional wedding photographer, you are on the right track!
Saying that, but of course we do a little bit of traditional poses too, but we tend to save the super posey or formal pose stuff for family group shots. I prefer to capture an authentic, natural and candid style which has a less intrusive approach when it comes to photographing your wedding. If you are a fun, loving adventurous couple and you would like photos that capture raw loving emotion then I'm your girl. Either it's an intimate wedding, a runaway elopement, a stylish and chic city wedding or escape destination wedding, big or intimate, I love them all so give me a shout!
WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS + FAMILY + PORTRAIT + LIFESTYLE + MATERNITY + NEW BORN + ENGAGEMENT + EVENT
My signature style is all about colour. My palette is leaning toward rustic warm tones, I love punchy colour, flares, bokeh, contrast of details and flawless texture of skin.
How I edit? With regard to tone - I don't have a restriction as I believe that each and every wedding is unique. From your venue, the vibe, the colour of your flowers and décor to the lighting and shadows on the day. I look at everything as a whole before deciding how to edit your wedding. My goal is to bring out the best of what make your wedding stand out! My aim is to enhance the colours, not to dye or replace them.
I do take your preference into consideration, therefore I also have my own version of light and airy tone. So take a look >>>

" I chose Pkay Bridal for the photography of my wedding and from start to finish I couldn't be happier with the service we have received. From the outset Kay was very open, bubbly and attentive. I would definitely recommend engagemet shoot before your wedding day, especially if you are a little shy or unfamiliar in front of the camera. Kay is very friendly and down to earth and immediately put us at ease. Kay made myself and my fiancé feel much more informed and relaxed ahead of our big day, this coupled with the beautiful photographs taken just make the experience so worth it.
The wedding day itself was incredible. She is very professional, but is so attentive that she makes you feel like you come first, like this isn't only a job to her but a true passion. This is further exemplified in her talent and creativity when shooting, it's as if nothing is too much trouble for her in the pursuit of getting those perfect shots. I truly could not have imagined we would get such stunning photographs from our day (which surely was not the norm in the middle of a field surrounded by sheep). But we now have photos that ourselves and our families will treasure always.
I would highly recommend Kay and her team and wouldn't hesitate to use her in the future."
