Hi, I'm Lily.

Welcome to my blog, where I share my recent work from weddings, engagements, proposals and other significant photography sessions from around the world. When I'm not behind my camera, I spend time travelling, playing with my daughter, eating my husband's lovely meals, and cuddling with my 2 dogs and 2 cats. I adore documenting love stories and cannot wait to tell yours!
