I'm Alice and I'm a London based photographer who likes to shoot weddings given half the chance. Here's a bit more about me in case you should be interested to know.
A bit about me
Since moving from my home town of Cambridge to London at some unknown point in 2015 I have been working full time in photography and to this day I have no idea how I managed to do that. I am a big London-ophile and have lived in Kentish Town, Hornsey, Muswell Hill, Finsbury Park and Walthamstow where I live now with my partner. I grew up in Cambridge and went to uni in York so London still feels like a big place to me and somewhere I find endlessly exciting. It's been here for more than 2000 years, how is that possible? Aside from photography I have an excess of hobbies, including singing, playing guitar, reading, writing and more recently now I'm pushing my mid 30s - ever the cliche - growing vegetables and home improvements. I am obsessed with cats and plants and all things Scandanavian and I day dream about travelling a lot. Essentially, I am a millenial.
How did I get started in photography?
My love of photography began when I was travelling in Italy in 2010. I had just discovered Instagram filters and the heady combination of Italian doorways and 100% contrast was enough to send my life in a whole new direction. My preoccupation with capturing people, places and things has been a constant in my life ever since but thankfully my taste in and aptitude for editing has matured with it. Photography is my way of exploring the world around me and as a bit of an introvert at heart it gives me permission to be really nosey and a lot bolder than I'd be without it. I travel as much as I can with my camera and I’m lucky enough to get to work abroad now and then too.
It feels good to be able to create something meaningful and lasting for people on what is such a major life event. The wedding photos are one of the only tangible things left over after the day is long gone and I love the idea that the day can be relived in the years after and passed through families for generations. They’re one of the only times you get everyone together in one place so having a great record of this is, in my opinion, really important. They're not just personal photos they'll one day be historical artefacts! The fact I get to be in charge of documenting that in a creative and fun way too is the cherry on an already pretty sweet cake.
