As two people who don’t naturally love the camera, Philippa was patient and helpful and guided us through, she really helped bring out the best in us. We loved Philippa’s style; very natural, free flowing and a photographic style that really suited us and our wedding.
She was incredibly professional, friendly with our guests and gave us a very personal experience and made sure we were well looked after. She really went above and beyond with the venue and event staff as well to help make sure the day ran smoothly, and was really supportive and helpful.
Philippa was a wonderful, kind, professional and friendly addition to our day

Philippa created us a wonderful family portrait. She managed to capture so many beautiful expressions from our 6 month old baby in such a short space of time. She had such a lovely way about her and really had us at ease as soon as we met her resulting in naturally beautiful photos.
Thank you so very much Philippa, you are very talented.

Where do I even begin…From the first meeting with Philippa we instantly felt like we were chatting with one of our closest friends! Her passion and excitement for our wedding was amazing and we got on like a house on fire! Philippa doesn’t just photograph your wedding, she lives through it with you and captures the entire day as it unfolds. Planning a wedding in a pandemic was stressful to say the least but Philippa was always there for a chat, a laugh, a rant, what ever we needed! From helping us with our button holes, holding our glasses of fizz or driving us off for photos in a golf buggy, Philippa was always on hand! We couldn’t be happier with the photos and there are no words to describe how highly we would recommend Philippa! She is one of a kind and her work is out of this world! THE BEST!!
We couldn’t be happier with the photos and feel like we have made a friend for life!

She made my proposal from my boyfriend one of the best days of my lives. Due to Covid my boyfriend had to postpone a couple of times, but every time he did Philippa would be so understanding and kindly gave him the space and time needed to set up the next plan. On the day, I had no idea that it was my proposal and she played a fantastic role until the big moment. So many amazing photographs and so many great memories from that day, we genuinely can't thank and recommend her enough!
Philippa was about amazing as photographers get

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Your comfort & happiness above all else
I prefer to steer away from photography and editing trends and I stick to what I know stands the test of time. Authentic, one-of-a-kind imagery using natural light and neutral complimentary tones.
As dedicated as my team and I are to our artistry and work, we always put the happiness and experience of our clients first. We are well known for providing an outstanding high quality of communication and service. My client's experience from booking and beyond are just as important to me as the final photographs.
"It is my absolute joy to be a part of your dream wedding and to capture memories for you to cherish forever."
loves the outdoors
"The idea of a beautiful image framed in a special place in your home is at the heart of what I want to achieve for you."
a history buff
"A lot of people will think it’s a cliche to say ‘I love my job’ but I honestly do. I love every single part of a wedding day!"
"It’s being part of all the special authentic moments that makes being a wedding photographer simply the best job in the world."
a true romantic at heart
After years of dreaming about being a professional photographer, I took the plunge, bought a second hand DSLR and began technical training.
After two years, I had built up not only my kit bag, but my experience and had photographed over 25 weddings alongside other professionals. I created a basic website and took on my first wedding clients under my brand.
Now four years into my five year plan to become a full time photographer, I doubled my wedding clients again, and began adding editorial shoots, babies and families to my photography portfolio and skill set.
I got married! I had also doubled my wedding bookings, all while still working a 9-5 full time job in retail buying. I started to receive recognition for my wedding photography after becoming a finalist for 'Best Wedding Photographer' in The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA). I also began advanced creative business training and met many of my industry friends and colleagues who continue to inspire me today.
I now had my work featured on many top wedding blogs and magazines, as well as recognition for a second year for photography at TWIA. 'Shot by Philippa' was born this year, where I began to use all the skills from wedding photography and retail buying, to build a commercial photography business where I could focus energy into creating beautiful visuals for independent businesses to elevate their own brands. Wedding photography clients were still growing, and I began my remote product photography services.
I QUIT MY 9-5!!
I began working with Luxury Florists, Events Agencies, Event Producers and Beauty Giants to deliver beautiful brand imagery as well as having my biggest year of weddings to date.
After a whole year as a full time photographer, I couldn't be happier and things were still going from strength to strength. As wedding season began to slow down, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter :)
A slow start to the year but commercial work was back with a bang and come the summer, so were weddings. It was GLORIOUS and I was so happy to finally see so many of my lovely couples celebrate the best day of their lives. This was mostly a year of catching up and appreciating how lucky I was to do this job.
We all know what happened in 2020... A break from weddings allowed me time to find a team of talented photographers to work for my brand so that I could offer my services to more people. I raised money for charity offering my 'Doorstep Portraits' during lockdown(s). Thankfully, my remote product photography service really took off for luxury beauty brands, photographing product mailers for press and influencers.
My family became complete as my gorgeous son was born and life seemed so much more normal again. I've spent the year ensuring my clients have received a flawless service while photographing more weddings and families than ever before. I now look forward to all the fun and joy that 2023 will bring as I set myself new goals that balance the job that I LOVE with the magical madness of family life.
What a year, eh?
Pop that bubbly!
I live in London with my two young children Eloise and Oxley and husband James. Everything I do, I do for them. We love to explore and travel, South Africa is next on the list.
I splurge on skincare and have been cheating on fashion with interiors as we have been converting two flats into our dream home. Cat lady. Cocktail of choice would be anything with gin.
