Hey, I'm Amy and I'm a wedding and family lifestyle photographer. I live in the Midlands in a town called Rugby, with my amazing husband, Matt and my gorgeous little boy, Harry! I love to travel - I cover weddings in Warwickshire, The Midlands and all over the UK.
When I'm not working, it is all about family time! I enjoy family adventures and woodland walks. We are really lucky to have gorgeous countryside right on our doorstep! We live near a beautiful bluebell woods so it's real treat in the spring to go there!
Autumn is my favourite season! I just love the gorgeous autumnal colours and the carpet of leaves. Plus I love any excuse to get a comfy jumper on, cosy up on the sofa with a blanket and hot chocolate, watching repeats of Friends (even if I have have seen 'The Last One' a gazillion times, I still cry!) I love a good romcom. You know how most people say Christmas begins for them when they see the cola advert... well for me it's when Love Actually is shown on the tv! The bit where Colin Firths character proposes to his housekeeper gets me every time! Basically, I'm a sucker for a cute love story! (Hearing about engagement stories is one of my favourite things.)
I love floral dresses and anything with polka dots on - the majority of my wardrobe is floral or spotty! Tea definitely tastes better from my favourite (spotty and floral!) Cath Kidston mug. I'm awful at cooking (luckily I'm married to a good cook) but I like to think I'm not too bad at baking - I make a rather tasty chocolate fudge cake. Although I'm not sure it would win me star baker on Bake Off!
I love crafting. I was a DIY bride and crafted pretty much everything for our wedding. I even decided to be a florist for the day and made all the bouquets, buttonholes and table centrepieces myself! Extra brownie points if you're crafting for your wedding too! I love photographing details at a wedding - the little bits that make a day unique!
I have been to Glastonbury festival 5 times and I sometimes think maybe if we were to plan our wedding day again, we'd have a festival themed day! Not that we didn't have the best day ever already of course!
My wedding day!
This is me about 8 years old, taking a

My journey into photography...
My dad brought me my first camera before a trip to London, I must have been about 5. It was a film camera and it came with a sheep camera bag which I loved! When I was a bit older, I would always be taking photos on my dad's 'fancy' film camera too. I remember being at my uncle's wedding and spending the whole time at the reception taking lots of photos.
I got a digital camera for my 12th birthday and I would do little photoshoots with my friends. I mean, I cringe at those photos now... but it was all part of my journey into photography!
I studied art & design at college and it was there that my love for photography grew and developed into a real passion. After college, I studied at The University of Northampton and proudly graduated with a BA (hons) degree in Photographic Practice.
My style and approach...
I actually have the best job in the world - I get to capture love! I have been shooting weddings for over 6 years now and I have been lucky enough to photograph so many beautiful love stories. Being asked to play such an important role on a couples wedding day is such a huge honour.
I describe my style as creative, natural & relaxed. I focus on capturing the story of the day unobtrusively. I'm a reportage style photographer, and that basically means that for most of the day I blend into the background, documenting moments as they happen. You can find out more about my style and approach to wedding photography here.
After Harry was born, I introduced family lifestyle photography sessions. Little ones don't stay little for very long and I think it's so important to preserve those precious family memories! Find out more about my family sessions here.
