Hi! I’m Kim, I’ve been a professional wedding photographer in London for over fifteen years.   I’ve had a lifelong love of photography since age 9 when my travelling through Europe on holiday with my parents, I was rationed one single photo a day on our family’s film camera.  I would think and plan my single shot carefully and can still see in my mind the picture I wanted to capture - a family of swans swimming under a bridge in the rain in Lucerne, Switzerland.  I waited patiently for that shot, much to the chagrin of my rain-soaked parents, but I got it in the end.  

That photo pretty much sums up my approach to photography all these years later – a clear vision of the kind of photograph I want to capture, coupled with diligence and patience.  Good photography isn’t about showing off but about capturing real moments that tell stories you want to look to at again and again later in life.  

A good photograph isn’t always perfect, but it’s the perfect moment – the bride shyly smiling walking down the aisle, a newborn baby making eye contact with mum in a brand-new world, or a moment of family laughter and chaos during a portrait session.

With an education in art history and a stint at Christie’s, I became a wedding photographer in 2006 after photographing a friend’s London wedding as a little surprise present.  She had booked a professional photographer, but she later told me that my photographs captured the real spirit of their day and suggested I pivot to being a wedding photographer.

With almost 400 weddings under my belt, I can honestly say that being a photographer in London is one of the best jobs I can imagine.  I love meeting people from all walks of life.  I’ve had the opportunity to photograph Gay weddings, Asian Weddings, Hindu Weddings, Muslim Weddings, segregated, lesbian weddings, and on a few occasions a combination of two or more.  

Also, I get to capture and tell the story beautifully and artistically.  You’ll see me on the ground photographing up to show a big, blue sky or in a rose bush to frame a couple through colourful flowers.  Ask me when to plan a portrait session, and every time, I will answer – in the golden hour before sunset so that everything is glowing. Anything worth photographing is worth photographing beautifully!

More recently, I worked on the maternity ward at Whittington Hospital as a mother and baby photographer.  It was an amazing experience to document hundreds of little ones’ first hours in this world.  As a people person, my time at Whittington led to working for the Communications departments of several NHS Trusts.  It has been truly rewarding to capture portraits and tell the stories of so many wonderful nurses, midwives and patients before and during the pandemic.

So, whatever you’d like photographed, if you want honest, flattering pictures taken by an experienced and friendly female photographer in London, get in touch. I’d love to chat!
