ABOUT ME

KRAUT SCOT HYBRID WITH A LOVE FOR ALL THINGS COLOURFUL AND PHOTOGRAPHY

I love vivid colours
And beaches and the sea
I love dancing (especially when no ones looking)
I love to laugh
I love a good old party
I love pasta (I could eat it every day)
I love a good cup of coffee
And expensive biscuits
(at least that’s what the guy in my local fruit and veg shop tells me whenever I put them in my basket)
I love short stories (with any other books I always have to read the last page first – it’s really annoying)
And music from the 50’s and 60’s and even the 80’s
Pressed on beautiful vinyl
My favourite drink is fizz
My favourite noise is opening a bottle
I love my kids
I love my cats
I love my husband – he’s hunky and Scottish
(I honestly love my husband more than the cats but it sounded better that way round)
I love flowers – big time
I love trees and mountains and cloudy skies
I love old buildings (I live in one)
I love stripy tops and dungarees
And the right kind of boots (they’re hard to find those)
I love walking
And picnics in the park
And cooking in my kitchen
I love people in love
I love photographing them
If you love any of the above,
I think we’d get on just fine

AND IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW I ENDED UP AS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER...

I grew up in a little village in the south of Germany. It's beautiful there. After school, I took a gap year and moved to London to figure out what to do with my life. I've always loved art but never felt that I was good enough at drawing or painting. Then my Dad gave me a camera and I fell in love with photography. I went on living and working as an assistant for advertising photographers in London and then moved to Brighton to study editorial photography. I never thought I would end up as a wedding photographer. The first wedding I photographed was for a friend and I loved how you have to think on the spot and make the most of whatever the day throws at you. I love that weddings are a story that I get to tell with my photographs. I moved to Glasgow in 2005 and started my business in 2008 so now have 11 years of shooting weddings under my belt. And, believe it or not, I still love my job and feel extremely lucky that I get to work with such a fantastic bunch of people every year. Long may it continue x
