I explored East London with Maddie and Manos for their pre wedding shoot ahead of their big day next month in Peckham.
We decided to go East to switch up locations so they have a variety of photos.
I personally think pre wedding shoots are really important. I got to know Maddie and Manos and they got to see how I worked, but most importantly how we worked together. It’s a great way to practise for the day!

“It is what you make it”
Embrace what you have. Don’t worry about what others think of you. Utilise your skills and enjoy what you’re doing.
The concept of this shoot is about living for the now, focusing on yourself and doing what you love. If your head is in the clouds doing it, then so be it. It’s good to look up.

During my time in London this month I collaborated with Uttercouture clothing.
UtterCouture is an online fashion retail store with a pop up shops in Shortditch Box park. They deliver trend forward, pioneering, emerging brands to valued customers. They focus on stocking stylish and innovative emerging brands. One of the main purpose for UTTER is to support new brands and designers by stocking their collections, giving them a platform to showcase their talent and supporting their growth.
I met Hattie, the brands marketing executive at their womenswear store in the box park. Hattie had picked a selection of outfits from designers Neumenon, Min Wu, P.I.C Style, House of Sunny, RWD, Grace Gordon, LOUS Warsaw and Cossac!
We headed out around the streets of Shorditch with our model Holly Horne and captured these looks!
In October I ventured out of small village life for a couple of months and went to Los Angeles.
I went to experience LA fashion photography. It was one of the best experiences of my life.I was lucky enough to have found a great photographer who gave up a lot of their time to educate me about the whole industry and taught me so much. I met a lot of interesting people and saw so many interesting places.
Los Angeles is a city with an electric feel. Its fast pace and diverse culture always gives you something to explore. Its beautiful coastline and year long warm weather makes it a popular destination for people from all over the world.
