“ I see the world through grainy film stills, every location, moment & scene is an opportunity & a story waiting to be told.”
Call me Florence, Flo, Flojo, Floberry or ‘Photo-girl’. I’ve been photographing my whole life, and been doing it professionally since 2012. I’ve developed over time the vision that is needed to be a photographer, seeing everything with a frame around it – weddings are my happy place & I have a real passion for having the pressure of capturing everything you have planned, and unplanned. There’s something extra special about handing over images, knowing full well that they didn’t realise half of them were taken.
What keeps me fresh is my other interests, I’m big on fashion and often the art of advertising used by high end designers travels through down to the portraiture used today. I often flick through Vogue & Harpers Bazaar letting all the images sink into my creative ‘board’ ready for when I’m next shooting. I loathe having my photograph taken, ironic I know. So I’m sympathetic to people like minded, I aim for amazing photographs yet this is only achievable with comfortable couples, I’m as laid back or as directive as you’d like me to be!
