Based in London, I am hugely passionate about delivering high-quality photography services across Surrey and the rest of the South East.
I feel very lucky that I am able to be constantly surrounded by happy people, fun celebrations, and beautiful locations and i get to call that 'work'. I absolutely love what I do and feel completely fulfilled in knowing how much the photographs I take mean to people.
For the last 10 years I have photographed many celebrations across the UK and Europe and I specialise in weddings, destination weddings, family and events.
Wedding photography is where my love of photography truly began and is my signature offering.
I see weddings are such a unique and special opportunity for me to beautifully and authentically bring my love of photography and happy moments together.
My balance of natural documentary, editorial and fine art photography allows you to enjoy your day exactly how you want to while creating beautiful timeless images that you will bring the memory of your wedding to life, year after year.
My Luxury Wedding Photography Collections include timeline planning, pre weddings sessions, bespoke photo viewings and luxury deliverables, as well as the options for additional event coverage, photographers, and albums.
Catherine & Rishi
Her photographs captured every aspect of the day beautifully: the scenery, people's laughter, the colours and details, special moments, hilarious dancing shots, and lovely 'posed' shots. The end results really look like something out of a magazine - incredible!
More kind words
Wedding photography naturally lead me into photographing families, as many of my past couples come back to me when they are expecting and once they've had children.
Photographs of your bump and your children will become some of your most precious heirlooms. Time moves so fast with kids and you will wish that they would just stop growing! I love capturing families so you can always look back on those times fondly.
Below you have the option to view information about the different shoots, including my new mini shoots, or go straight to booking.
Sarah & David
Having used Philippa for our wedding, it was only right that we asked her to do our first family photoshoot. Philippa was brilliant on the day, going with the flow, in a super calm manner that meant it didn’t matter whether our baby was awake, sleeping, crying or feeding. Her incredible eye means that she can direct you and capture the most priceless moments
As well as weddings, I love to document all celebrations in life. From lavish milestone birthday parties, to intimate dinner parties, I cover any type of event in my signature style; beautifully detailed and stylish candid photography.
I have photographed many events including proposals, children’s birthdays, baby showers, Christenings, retirement parties, and adult celebrations in private homes, venues and luxury hotels.
I cover the whole of the UK and Europe for
any special celebration.
A pre wedding session is included in all Collections for my wedding couples but there are times when newly engaged couples travel to London and want some beautiful portraits to celebrate!
I have been lucky enough to photograph couples from all over the globe, including America and Canada who were celebrating their engagements or special anniversaries.
I work with and help a range of independent businesses grow their brand identity with strong, beautiful imagery that SELLS.
Whether you’re a coach looking to grow your personal brand, a stylist in need of more inspiring images to showcase your work on social media, or a creative launching a new product – you’ve come to the right place!
I am proud to have worked with many commercial and corporate clients across many different industries. From beauty and fashion to charities and security companies, I capture not just the event itself but the details and any VIPs.
My clients. include Skin Ceuticals for Selfridges, YSL, Viktor & Rolfe, Armani Beauty, Lancome, for The Baftas, Elemis, New West End Company, Polar Black Events, One Roof Social, Moet Hennessey UK, All For Love London, Amie Bone Flowers, Rebecca K Events, EMYP Studios & Safer Business Network.
You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about two to three weeks of your photography shoot or coverage (6 for weddings). At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums.
Amos & Emily
She was so kind, patient and open with us when handling some of the more sensitive parts of the day: from fine-tuning the smallest details to filling us with confidence and reassurance with some of the more daring photo opportunities (taking photos on Tower Bridge in front of tourists!)

Right from the very beginning, Philippa made us feel excited and like we were in very safe hands. She remains in constant communication throughout the planning purpose and is unbelievably organised. Including a test shoot is such a great idea (even if you have a reluctant groom, as I did!) because it made for beautifully natural pictures on the day.

Louise & Ross
Nicola & Matt
She has become a friend, I was able to ask for her advice many times throughout the planning process of the wedding and she was wonderful in helping to keep me calm on the big day. She even gave me some rescue remedy just before the ceremony as I suddenly became so nervous whilst getting into my dress!

Gemma & Will
Philippa is the perfect wedding photographer - she managed to capture everything in such a natural way. The images are better than we could have ever imagined! It was such a pleasure to have her there on the day and she just blended in like a guest.

We do not offer videography services, however we can recommend Ash Videography, I Will Video, Together We Go Studio and HD Moments
In these very unlikely circumstances, we will always help to work alongside you and your planner to secure a new date.
I shoot digital Canon 35mm cameras, and my team shoot a mixture of Canon and Sony. We always bring camera, lens, and memory card backups, and all of our equipment is regularly serviced to ensure it’s in full working order.
As a natural photographer, I want your images to look like you, so light retouching is included if necessary which may include blemish removal, slight under. eye touch up, teeth whitening and cropping. Any adjustments made are minimal as my preference is to delivery natural clean representation of you.
I do also offer outsourced professional retouching for more extensive requests which are quoted on an individual basis and would require your approval before proceeding with any additional work.
Yes, myself and my team all have our own indemnity and public liability insurances.
The simple answer to this is no, and this is because raw files are unedited photos that do not reflect the final product and work of a photographer. It would be like Picasso handing over a line drawing of a painting... 'RAW' is also a format that most people don’t have the software to support so you wouldn't be able to use or. view them anyway.
