About Me

Just call me Fee

Hi, I’m Fiona…or Fee as most people call me and I’m the one behind the camera. I'm your London & Surrey wedding photographer shooting all over the UK. I specialise in beautiful, natural and creative wedding, portrait and commercial photography. I’m based in London, and I'm generally known as a Surrey wedding photographer, but will happily work all over the UK.

I’m originally from the Lake District and still very much a Northerner despite having been in London for over 20 years. I live in Purley, South London, with my husband, our son, a grumpy cat called Chilli and a crazy fuzzball Cockapoo called Baxter. There’s never a dull moment but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

A tom boy at heart, I live in jeans and love outdoor adventures… especially when they end up in a lovely country pub. I do pilates, have recently started running and sweat my way through HIIT classes. All so I can treat myself to a cheese plate, glass of wine and a movie! I know pretty much all the words to The Sound of Music, can easily get lost in Harry Potter, Star Wars or Lord of the Rings and now, thanks to my son, I am a connoisseur of animated films. I have recently discovered the joy of pottering in the garden, even though I have no idea what I am doing. I’m a bit of a collector of ‘things’ (something my son has inherited) and on our travels we pick up all sorts of souvenirs and artwork.

Photography was not my first career

I first dabbled with taking photos many moons ago (I’m definitely not telling you how many!), when I pinched my Dad’s old film camera and decided to have a go. I was lucky to have a dark room at school so learned to use the camera, develop my own film, print my own photographs and do lots of experimenting! This early foray into photography got sidetracked by a degree in Graphic Design and then a job as a Graphic Designer & Photographic Art Director.

Little did I know at the time how many valuable skills I would learn, while travelling the world working on fashion, lifestyle and interiors shoots. My interest in people, places and design and my love of natural images, beautiful light and creative composition made for a perfect fit when I finally rediscovered photography and took the plunge, setting up

How I work

Since I started as a Surrey wedding photographer, over 300 couples have trusted me to capture their special day all over the UK and abroad.

I bring all that experience to your wedding. I know where to be at the right times and how the day flows. I know when to stay in the background and discretely capture the moment, and when to step up to sort out the photos that need taking. I know how to help you keep calm when things get a little hectic and I have sorted out more veils and buttonholes than I can remember.

I love to tell stories with natural, beautiful and creative photography. I have a bit of an obsession with sunsets and have been known to do a happy dance when the light is just perfect (you have been warned!). As well as capturing the big events of the day, I’m always looking out for the small moments. Things that might not even be noticed, but will create the most amazing memory for you after the day.

Over the years, I have had my work regularly featured in leading UK Wedding magazines and on highly respected blogs, such as Rock My Wedding, Love My Dress and Style Me Pretty. You can check out some of my features + happy couples right here.

And what about your wedding? Wherever it is and whatever you choose to do, your wedding will be uniquely yours. A day of celebration, fun, laughter, the odd embarrassing story and more than a bit of crazy dancing. You will be surrounded by your favourite people in the world and your wedding will be as wonderfully individual as you are. For some top tips on how to plan your day, check out my popular planning guide here.

If you think we would be a great fit and you would like me to capture your wedding day, get in touch and tell me more about your plans.
