"Kelsie was our wedding photographer and without a doubt the best we could have wished for. Kelsie made things flow so well and made us feel comfortable during our day. Photos and moments were captured that we will forever be blessed with and have her to thank for this."

– Vicki hart

"Kelsie truly has a way of putting you at ease to capture the perfect candid shots. On our wedding day, she also offered unending support and guidance making her an irreplaceable part of our day. She is quite the wedding aficionado!"

– Kayla Stout

"I’m so glad we had you as our photographer – I’ve had nothing but compliments from everyone about how lovely our photographer was and we’d agree! Our day was beyond anything we could have hoped for."

– Aaron Haines

"I’ve gone back to look at them time and time again since we got them and each time I’ve looked, I’ve loved them even more. The way you seamlessly became an integral and sometimes invisible part of our day, yet still managed to gather such wonderful moments, is a testament to your skills. The photos are superb, and have filled our families with so much joy."

–  Daniel Aldous-Critchley

Marquee wedding photographer

Specialising as a marquee wedding photographer was a no brainer – much like your decision to get married in one!

If you’ve ever been to a marquee wedding before, you know the day is somehow unlike any other wedding you’ve been to before. 

I have my theories on why marquee weddings are so incredible. But in truth, all I really know is that photographs from marquee weddings always turn out amazing. Marquees create such beautiful light no matter the weather. And couples always seem so much more at ease and carefree.

So if that’s the kind of wedding day you want – one that is filled with joy, laughter and epitome of happiness – a wedding photographer is a key component. And I’m not just talking about any photographer.

Because what you need is someone who takes a truly unique approach. Not only am I a wedding photographer, but also your trusted guide. The secret sauce behind the beautiful photographs you’ll treasure forever.

In short, I get you, your love and your people like no one else so I can elicit, predict and capture authentic moments. I focus on creating laughter and joy between loved ones. And I know how to photograph your best angles and cultivate light in the most beautiful ways. 

Above all, my number one priority is your happiness. So I do whatever I can  to ensure my couples have the best wedding day possible. And I’d love to chat with you about all the ways I go above and beyond to make your experience an incredible one.

Luxury wedding photographer

Having photographed marquee weddings for well over a decade, I am a specialist at ensuring your day is perfect.

Above all, your happiness is always at the forefront of my mind. I do whatever I can to make the day epic. From your welcome guide full of advise and recommended suppliers, to the un-ending support I provide on the day.

You want a photographer who really gets you and knows what they are doing.

And with the awards and featured publications to certify my talent, you can rest easy knowing you are in good hands. 

My style is documentary, but with a difference. In short, I’ll be there whenever you need me. Is your mum self-conscious about her double chin? I’ll teach her my secrets from being a portrait photographer with one of the best in the business back home in the US. Has your hair got messed up with all the hugs you’ve been showered in? I’ll help sort it before I take another photograph.

But what ultimately makes me different from other photographers? I have a talent for getting people to truly trust me and relax in my presence. You and your loved ones will not shy away like they would from others. Instead they will laugh, celebrate and let loose their true personalities. And that’s where the magic happens. 

Wedding Photographer in Sussex

I am an East Sussex wedding photographer based in Brighton. But I don’t stay local often! I service East and West Sussex, Kent, Surrey, London, Hampshire and beyond.

Originally from the US, I have photographed weddings from around the world for over 15 years. Of those 15 years, I have been living in the Sussex for 7 years
