I grew up in the beautiful picturesque Lake District, spending my time either walking the magical rolling hills or competing with my horses. My background before photography was in the fashion world, so colour and movement to me, has always been at the forefront of my mind. It became very apparent very quickly the I was more interested in the photography side of things which is how I became to becoming a wedding photographer. I combine the editorial elements of the fashion world with the a documentary style to create truthful natural images that tell the most raw and beautiful story of my couple’s day. My mission is to photograph an authentic love story of my couples and to create images they can cherish for a lifetime. I am a great believer that all of the in-between moments are just as important as any other moment throughout the day.
I am also trained in Interior Design, so my combined love of photography, colour & styling, means I love capturing those beautiful little details and really just love seeing how couples make their day so unique to them. I photograph mainly in the North of England but also take a limited number of weddings throughout Britain and Europe.
Ailsa has such a gift for finding the beautiful in the everyday moments. She captured so many from our day so every time we look through the pictures it is like we are re living it all over again. She put us all at ease right from the very start and nothing was too much hassle. Some friends and family asked if we had a videographer but there was no need because the photographs do our wedding more justice than a video ever could. I seriously cannot recommend her enough and there is nobody else who I would have wanted to document our day. She only does a select amount of weddings each year which makes it feel so personal and special. Lucy & Ross
Ailsa is a fabulous photographer- her photos are beautiful, unique and captured the spirit of our wedding day perfectly. Ailsa is such a lovely person and a great calming influence to have if you might be feeling a but nervous! From getting ready in the morning until the party started in the evening Ailsa was amazing and even managed to keep our rowdy families in line!Francesca & Richard
