Services

Creating images of your wedding day is why I am here, it is my passion. There is nothing I enjoy more than this. 

My approach to you and your day is one of love and reverence. The process of us working together will be a collaborative, ensuring that your images are unique to you and your wedding day. 

It is always my intention to make you feel as though your best friend is taking your wedding photographs. 

I am a storyteller, let me be yours

Weddings

Let's connect

Wherever you are,  that's where I'll be! 

After photography, my next greatest passion is travel. 
I have been fortunate to travel all over the world and even more blessed to photograph weddings in Australia, Dubai and Europe.

Wherever you decide to create your wedding in the world,
I will be there with you.

Destination Weddings

A pre-wedding shoot, is not only a treasure for you to keep, but it is a brilliant way for us to connect via the camera. 
For me to see how you interact as a couple and for you to see how I work and create your images.

It is also an opportunity for us to learn about the images that you want on the big day.

What you can expect 

On your wedding day

Being with you on your wedding day is an honour and I will go above and beyond to help ensure that everything goes according to plan.

I want you to have the best day of your lives

My style of photography is natural candid images of you enjoying these once in a lifetime moments. 
A wedding is a naturally beautiful thing, like a leaf on the wind. Once it starts, brilliant and exciting things just happen.

There will of course be times during the day when I will need to create or curate a photograph with you, but the vast majority of the time I will be out of the way, watching and waiting for the magic to happen.

Never in the way, but always close by
