I'm a documentary-style photographer shooting on digital, analogue and Super 8 film. I deliver photographs that capture your unique story and the atmosphere of your day.


Do you travel?

I do - I love travelling for weddings! If you're getting married in the UK or abroad, I'd love to hear from you!

How long will it take to receive our photos?

You will receive 30+ preview images within 48 hours of your wedding. The full gallery will be delivered to you within 4-6 weeks (sometimes sooner)!

How do we book you?

Be in touch with me via Rock My Wedding or my website and I can send you more information and a quote. Your wedding date will be secured upon receipt of a 20% deposit and contract.

What's your approach to taking photos?

I am a documentary-style photographer, who will blend into the background of your day, capturing every moment as it unfolds naturally. I am a friendly presence and love getting to know your guests and will do all I can to help your day run as smoothly as possible. If you'd like group photos, I seek to make this part as creative and fun as possible - no simply standing there awkwardly and saying "cheese"!

We're nervous because we've never had our photos taken before!

Do not fret - I hear the same thing from the majority of the couples I work with! My main priority will be getting to know you both and what you're comfortable with. I avoid awkward poses and will instead give helpful prompts allowing the focus to be on just being yourselves, chatting, laughing and enjoying special moments together as I snap away.


Esther was our wedding day photographer. She did a fantastic job at putting people at ease and capturing special moments of our day whilst being very discrete. She is professional, kind, reliable and hugely talented. We would highly recommend!


From the moment we met Esther, her friendly and warm demeanor immediately put us at ease. Throughout the entire process, she maintained the highest level of professionalism, making us feel confident that we had chosen the perfect person to capture our special day. One aspect we truly appreciated about Esther was her unintrusive presence. She seamlessly blended into the background, allowing the day to unfold naturally without feeling like we were constantly posing for pictures. Her ability to capture the genuine interactions between our loved ones and us added an element of intimacy and sincerity to the photos. It felt as if she wasn't just a photographer but a cherished guest who genuinely cared about preserving the memories we were creating.


We booked Esther to capture our engagement and wedding photos and couldn't be happier with her photos! She captured the day in such wonderful depth and colour and we look forward to cherishing the photos and memories in the years to come! All the way through the process Esther was on the ball to ensure that nothing was missed on the day itself. She was very helpful in suggesting ideas for photos at the engagement shoot and the couple photos on our wedding day, and was timely in delivering the photos (we really enjoyed the sneak peeks too)! Overall we would highly recommend her to any couples looking for a wedding photographer!
