A believer in love, in the intimacy of light, and a story teller in the most raw and atmospheric sense. I want to create your legacy through emotional and beautiful imagery.


Do you offer different packages?

I offer one main package, for all traditional, full day weddings. Which is from prep - just after first dance. I LOVE micro weddings and elopements, and do bespoke pricing based on an hourly rate.

How do we book?

To get booked in, all I need is a signed copy of my contract, and a £250 booking fee. Then the date is all yours and secure in my diary.

How would you describe your style?

I feel like my style is so recognisable! There's a few words I'd use - dark, moody, romantic, atmospheric, intimate, emotive... I always look for natural and emotional moments, and try and adopt a storytelling approach to your day.


I honestly can't even begin to explain how amazing Esme is. We first met Esme at my sister in laws wedding, and knew then we had to have her. She was a dream to work with, and helped us more than you could even expect your closest friends to, she really went above and beyond. Her work is out of this world. She has you at ease the second she walks through that door, and I basically styled our wedding on Esme's work. I couldn't have dreamed for anything from the pictures - she really is something else.

We are absolutely over the moon with our images, as we always are when we're lucky enough to have Esme with us for a day. It's impossible to pick favourites, Esme is unbelievably, incredibly talented. I've no clue how she manages to capture such raw and emotive images so effortlessly. It just felt like she was a guest for the day - exactly how it should be, and we can never thank her enough.

When we found Esme through instagram, we fell in love. We couldn't find anyone's work that matched up to her expertise and uniqueness, so booked with no hesitation. She is worth every single penny. She's beautiful, carefree, and captures moments you never expected. The quality of the photographs is astonishing, we hardly noticed her throughout the day, and didn't realise so many moments were captured as she's so discreet. If you're lucky enough to book her, you will 1000% not regret it.
