When you are choosing your wedding photographer it is super important that you click with them!

My work is based on emotion. I look for connections people share and emotions that are felt. Shooting with intent, and  I collaborate with you to get the images that you want from your wedding day. I spend time getting to know you both so I can respond to your personalities as I work.

I encourage your to feel relaxed so that the pictures do not feel forced in anyway. I also work candidly for sections of the wedding day to capture your guests enjoying the moment.

My approach to wedding photography forms part of a trend called Creative Wedding Photojournalism which, combines documentary photography with portrait photography. Documentary photography does not seek to disturb the natural flow of events, so I step back and let the day unfold and let things happen naturally. However I compliment this with creative portrait photography, so I am constantly seeking out good composition, light and colour. The working with you I also like to pop some fine art portraits in too if you have given time for that in your wedding timeline.

Why not book an #Eshoot to see if we are a good match!

How I Work

Marriage is a journey that unfurls itself before you. Let that road be amazing.

I AM MY BRAND.
My business was born from returning to my creative eye through the lens, after some major life challenges. It makes me take more notice of things that are important to me and help unfurl them more presently in my life. I bring myself to my brand and all that I do.

I VALUE MY TALENT AND TIME
I respect my talent, my time, all my previous learning and development. My pricing reflects that.

I SHOW UP WITH ALL THAT I AM
I bring my art, my heart, my gut instinct, resourcefulness, spontaneity, determination, professionalism and passion to my clients. My job is to deliver not only what you want, but also what you don’t even know what you want.

I SHOOT WITH INTENT
I press the shutter when I am moved by what I see. I shoot to tell a story. This can be a curated moment, or a quick fire snap based on quick instinct. I love negative space. I love small details.

I EMBRACE COLLABORATION
My work is enhanced when working with a team of other professionals who excel in their given specialty. I also work with other photographers to embrace our talents collectively and inspire each other.

I ADAPT
I have a compelling picture in my mind of what I’d like to create in a photograph, but can adapt for to suit the client and the landscape and environment for a successful outcome. I sense when clients need guiding, or when to let events unfurl.

I SELL EXPERIENCE AND EMOTION
I make sure I shoot for, capture, and deliver emotion. I also sell the experience - my photographs are a reminder of the experience that created them.

I BELIEVE IN THE EMPOWERING NATURE OF IMAGERY
I love providing the gift of creating how people remember their lives, empowering an individual to define and redefine, and creating a lasting visual reminder of how incredible life is.
