I have always documented my life with photographs rather than words, and am fascinated by photographs that document a time or place I have not been fortunate enough to experience. I love to photograph people in candid, natural situations.
This led to an interest in street photography, capturing people going about their lives while I was travelling. However, before our Paris trip I’ve never dedicated any significant periods of time to this art and was excited to do so. It was an amazing and incredibly difficult experience but one I learnt a huge amount from. I can already see the difference shooting street has made in my wedding work.
