Photos that document each happy, natural moment, without you feeling watched.


I'm there to capture everything naturally as your day unfolds, so you can focus on having the time of your life! For me, the best part about wedding photography is getting to know my couples and joining in the fun to get the best pictures.

Get to know me

A fun, relaxed & quirky Yorkshire wedding photographer.


I’m Olivia, a wedding photographer from Leeds, die-hard music lover and true crime podcast fanatic.


I'm a master of blending into the background at weddings so that your photographs are completely natural. That's the best way to document every genuine laugh, embrace, even your uncle's unusual dance moves.


My style is very relaxed, giving you the chance to focus on each other, family and friends. Your wedding photos will document everything that makes your day personal; from your carefully chosen details, to the moments shared between guests.

Do we have to spend a long time taking group photographs?

Not at all! I want to get you back to your guests with a drink in your hand as quickly as possible.
We can do as many or as few group photos as you'd like, although I recommend a maximum of 10.

I always bring spare group photo lists with me, so that with the help of some key people we can rally the troops even faster.

What if I/we don't really like having our picture taken?

The funny thing is I'm not a fan of having my picture taken either, so I understand how it feels! I find the best pictures happen naturally so I won't be asking you to pose. Your portraits are an opportunity to steal a quiet moment together, you'll forget I'm even there.
I'm often told by couples and their guests that they didn't notice me taking pictures, this is the best compliment.
