How long have you been a photographer?
Seven years, and heading into wedding season number eight!! I have photographed more than 100 weddings (I really should find out the exact number!) and just as many engagement sessions, if not more! I love my job more and more with each wedding I photograph! I started photographing weddings after finishing university. I was planning to go to law school but I experienced a little "what do I want to do with my life" crisis and turned to photography as a form of therapy. Turned out I was pretty good at it! I saw an opportunity to turn my love for photography into a business and I've never looked back.
How would you describe your style?
"Candid emotion. Timeless Portraits"
I am inspired by the raw emotion and authentic moments that abound on a wedding day, and I love to photograph all of this with a photojournalistic approach. There are some moments when I may intervene, to ensure that you are in the best light (for example when getting ready to step into your wedding dress) however, for the most part, I choose to be in the moment with you and refrain from orchestrating things. I also love the time that I get to spend with my Couples on the wedding day, composing timeless portraits that are full of authentic emotion, natural body language and loads of laughter!
Will you photograph a winter wedding?
Absolutely!!! I love the opportunity to work in all seasons as each one has its own beauty that makes for great portraits! Plus I have these new boots and a really cute scarf that make me excited to bundle up! Some unique logistics will need to be worked out to maximize daylight - a first look is highly recommended and preferred.
We want to book you, what's next?
To secure my services for your wedding date, a contract and 20% non-refundable retainer fee are required. It’s that simple. Use the contact form or email to get the process started!
Do you only photograph weddings?
