About Me

I like to laugh. My heart races when I click the shutter knowing that everything has just come together perfectly for that single moment (maybe I should see a doctor about that?!). I love working with people who are fun. I am grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to capture memories that will be revisited many times by the people in them, their families and people who have not even been born yet.

I enjoy listening to people tell interesting stories about their past and how they met. I love the range of emotions on the faces of couples when they see their wedding photographs for the first time.

Being within earshot of the ocean makes me happy.

About You

You like to laugh. You have fun wandering off the path and finding your own way. You get a strange sense of satisfaction when a sticker peels off in one piece.

You value photography. You like looking at photographs of people you know when they were younger. Seeing a moment captured in a photograph transports you back to that time. You’ve got an eye for detail.

MY MISSION

My aim is to make wedding photography a really enjoyable experience. Regardless of whether you are very camera shy or if you’ve mastered “Blue Steel”, we will have fun together and create great images.
Every wedding is different and I’m there to tell the story of your wedding day. My style is consistent, but the images from each wedding tell the unique story of that day. Your wedding day is a love story – I’d love to tell it.

10 things I love

Photography is a huge passion of mine, and I love everything to do with it. Outside of photography, here are 10 other things that I love…

Music

I listen to a lot of music, especially when I’m editing. I love going to see live bands too.


Apple products

I love how everything is simple and just works. I guess I can relate! 😉


The coast

I love the smell of the ocean and the fresh salty air. The sounds of waves crashing relaxes me.


My wife

My favourite person to go on adventures with and to just hang out with.


My daughter

The most amazing little girl in the world.


Books

Probably about some sort of post apocalyptic world. Or a quirky non-fiction book. Or the occasional business book.


Venice

My favourite city on Earth. It forces you to slow down to it’s pace. AND it’s got great ice cream!


Movies

I love movies that are a little different or quirky. I’m not a big fan of franchises – give me a good story and I’m happy!


People

I love people’s stories, their uniqueness, and how you can meet a complete stranger and immediately click with them.


Crazy shirts

Not at weddings, obviously! But I’m a big fan of Desigual clothes these days.
