“...the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
My style as a wedding photographer, is to unobtrusively curate all the key moments and special details to help you tell the the story of your wedding day, in a collection of beautiful photographs that reflect the love, fun and style of your day.
I am available in London, throughout the UK, and abroad for destination weddings. For any weddings outside London, travel and accommodation costs need to be covered. For destination weddings, my hourly rate is negotiable to offer you a package rate.
My headshot style is based on training by Peter Hurley, the top headshot photographer in New York. My goal is to direct you, so you feel natural and relax in front of the camera, achieving a head shot that conveys confidence and approachability. A head shot that reflects your personality, as opposed to the traditional corporate mug shot! I have a portable lighting kit, so can travel to you, or arrange a studio if preferable.

Wedding, Event and Headshot Photographer
Helen did a tremendous job. Mingling with the crowd and took some fantastic shots. Would definitely recommend her work. Thanks again
Helen was a pleasure to work with. She kept in regular contact before the event and was very pleasant to work with on the day. She put us both at ease. She contacted us very promptly with photos of the wedding. We would be more than happy to work with her again in the future and recommend her to our friends.
It has been a pleasure to have Helen as a part of our wedding day at Clifton Nurseries in London. She has been amazing from start to finish. We discussed the day with her ahead of the time. She was at the venue well before the ceremony started. She made us feel so comfortable. We absolutely loved the pictures. We'll like to work with her again in the future and would recommend her.
A great photographer! Very thoughtful and positive to work with.
Helen is a fantastic photographer!
She was quick to respond, great to discuss the project with on the phone, organised - sent a proposed shot list that we could edit - and was very down to earth. It was clear she really connected on what we wanted and has great experience, so there was a great sense of trust from the start, which left us to relax and enjoy our day. Everything you'd want out of someone coming to shoot your wedding. She got on so well with our families and certainly got the best out of them in the lovely, timeless images she captured.
Thank you, Helen!
Helen captured my wedding reception wonderfully, with the effortless and natural style that I was expecting based on her portfolio. She delivered the photos so quickly.
Writing this review is difficult because I have so many good things to say about Helen that I'm struggling to express how truly grateful I am that she is:
- So professional and flexible
- Friendly - I feel like we were able to have conversations from the minute we met
- Understanding, kind, caring and genuinely interested in photography and capturing our special moments
- A good listener that is interested about what I want as a client and how she can provide that
I feel these are all incredibly important traits when you are placing your trust (and money!) in someone else's hands. She blended in and got on so well with all of our guests. I read in another of her reviews that she felt more like a friend than a photographer, and I have to say I completely agree with this; I'm so happy about that.
Two things that I'll remember for a very long time:
1. Her suggestions for several "action" shots/poses that would never have happened if she didn't suggest them
2. Her attention to detail - she said it is part of the job but I'm not sure how many photographers would be able to tell me a dress strap is showing without making it awkward at all :)
Helen is irreplaceable and I would recommend her to anyone that is even vaguely interested in her photography.
Very professional and friendly photographer.
Was fantastic very profesional reliable and took fantastic photographs, in a very short preparation time and speedy delivery of photos which was perfect!
“When choosing the photographer for our Cocktail Party, Helens photos instantly stood out above the rest and once we’d met her in person we were in no doubt she would do an amazing job. Her passion for photography was undoubted, her professionalism was second to none! She was always in the right place for the shots needed to capture the evenings events, and the photos were available to download the following day. We would not hesitate in booking Helen for future events.
Thank you Helen.
