PEOPLE GENERALLY CALL ME "THE STEED" MY FIRST NAME IS PRACTICALLY REDUNDANT, I HAVE ACCEPTED THIS GRACIOUSLY.

YOU CAN CALL ME ABIGAIL, ABI, AB, STEEDO OR THE STEED OR ALL OF THE AFOREMENTIONED.

SO THIS is the part where I have to dish the dirt on myself,

 I asked my children for some honest pointers so here we go!

It was going to be ten things you don't know about me, turns out there are some things I'm still discovering about myself so who's counting!

1.  I am obsessively compulsively early for everything,  if something happens that makes me late then I obsess about it for ages afterwards.

2. If we meet up and my hair is blonde,  it'll probably be a different colour by the time I come to your wedding. I'm addicted to dyeing my hair. 

I was brunette when I wrote this, now I'm blonde, you get the general idea

3. I cannot reverse park. I'll drive around in circles and pretend to look lost rather than try and reverse into a space.

4. I love wearing Birkenstocks,  if it were socially acceptable I'd wear them with socks in the winter.

(I lied, I do sometimes wear them with socks in the winter, but only to the corner shop,

Ethel, aged 85, does not have any fashion expectations of me in there)

5. I have terrible fitness fads, I currently have a treadmill in my room that is doubling as a clothes hanger.

(I have actually moved the clothes now, I just need to plug it in. Baby steps.)

MAJOR UPDATE: I am now running between 5/6 miles a day, outside, IN PUBLIC, I'm winning at life. Treadmill is now back to being a clothes hanger.

6. I'm a complete movie and TV buff, except soap operas, I have never watched a single episode of Eastenders.

7. I think baked beans are the work of the devil.

7a. I am a terrible cook, although I can bake a tasty cake, it will just look a bit pants.

8. I think I can sing, according to my kids I can't, but honestly, they are like ten years old, they know nothing.

9. I am terrified of snakes but can also name an awful lot of them just by sight. ( know thine enemy).

10. I wish The X files were real, I want to be Dana Scully and go find some aliens.

11. I think dogs are THE BEST THING EVER, if you are a cat person then that's ok, we can still talk. 

I won't hold it against you ;-)

12. Classic cars make me very happy, I love that old car smell and if they didn't break down every ten miles I'd have one (or two).

13. I am 92.5% sure I floated down the stairs when I was three years old, it was a very vivid memory, I have yet to recreate the experience but don't be alarmed if I start to hover in the air at your wedding.

14.Wes Anderson is a genius, I love all his films, especially this one  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0838221/

15. I hate having my photo taken, to make it worse I always inadvertently make a duck face. I am cursed.

So most photos of me will have a camera stuck in front of my face or be of the back of my head, this is by design and not accidental. 

 

 

If that hasn't put you off, then here's some more about what I do!

I specialise in documentary style wedding photography with lots of creativity and fun and I'm normally booked to do weddings that are slightly less formal or traditional, really the more relaxed and chilled out the better.

I like people, i especially like photographing people that are having a good time.

 I'm going to capture all the candid, real moments of a wedding, even the ones where you are crying with laughter or falling over drunk.

I will not try to pose you in a cheesy, dated fashion or make you feel uncomfortable or self conscious.

I will take formal photos if that's what you want but will find a more interesting way of doing them

and I NEVER EVER spot colour anything!  (Google it, it's awful)

I am based in the UK, (down south) but I love to journey anywhere for a wedding and travel is included in all my packages.

Wedding photography can be awesome, quirky, creative and should be really really fun and relaxed for you.
