Hi, my name’s Daria.

I believe you should hire the photographer who you have a spark with – the same way you had a spark with your partner. Because when you know, you know, right? So here’s a bit about me. Let’s get sparky.

I live in South West London with my soulmate, Dave. My motto in life is ‘a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’, which I have tattooed on my arm. I believe in following your dreams and living life in its fullest, richest glory. And it’s for this reason that I quit my corporate job in events to pursue my dream to work as a full time photographer! I’ve now been taking photographs of beautiful weddings and happy people since 2011.


I’m completely devoted to photography and hardly a day goes by when I don’t take a photograph. I adore the concept of capturing life on film, and if I wasn’t a photographer I’d probably be working in the film industry. It’s such a simple thing, to take a moment and put it on film – but so powerful. As a professed introvert, choosing a life behind the camera suits me very well! You’d never say that I’m the loudest person in the room, but that’s my super power: I’m incredibly observant and I never miss a moment.


When I’m not taking photographs, you’ll find me being active outdoors. Trekking, running, skiing or cycling – I love to get moving and feel the breeze on my face and fresh air in my lungs. Fortunately Dave shares my passion for cycling – we have five bikes in our household – and we’ll frequently spend our days off whizzing over to the Surrey hills on our racer bikes for coffee and cake (because cake should be at the end of every bike ride, in my book).


I’m completely addicted to travelling and have been on all continents apart from Antarctica, which is the top of my bucket list to visit. It’d make a brilliant venue for an elopement, hint hint...

Book your session

If it feels like we'd be a good fit, please send me a line through my contact page, I’d love to get together over a drink (mine’s a G&T) and learn about your special day and how I can help you document your wedding catching every smile, tear, laugh and unforgettable moments in between.
