What makes you different from the other photographers' work?

Me? I’ve been told from my past couples that I’m fun, passionate and an all rounded great professional third wheel.

My style of photography blends with Documentary & Natural, with those little intimate details in-between. Beginning from your happy nerves at bridal preparations, the moment you say your I-dos to one-another, those mingling portraits of you and your bridal party and the first dance of being a married couple. I buzz knowing that you both are having the best wedding day experience with me as your wedding photographer.

My go-to words to describe myself are: Intimate/Fun/Relaxed/Romantic

do you have insurance?

I sure do! I have only but the best protection for myself and for you on your wedding day! If you or your venue would like a copy to view this, I can give you a copy as proof. Safety first.

We hate having our photo taken, we don't want loads of posed shots, is that ok?

Sure thing!

I know at first-hand what that feeling is like. It can be daunting standing in-front of a camera but I promise you, I can help with your anxiety on this with little actions I’ve picked up over the years – I used to model and have a camera randomly pointed at me too – yikes.  Most of the photos I take during your wedding will be natural, unposed and relaxed. Occasionally I will steal you for 10 – 20 mins to capture some intimate moments of you both, but trust me, you will look back and love them.

Camera Shy? Here’s some info that might help

How long will it take for our photos to be ready?

After your wedding, I send over 10 random images of the day as a little teaser. After this, it takes around 8 – 10 weeks of hand-editing & uploading your wedding photographs to your online gallery. If you want your wedding images done a-lot faster this can be done for an added fee.

can we order our album at a later date?

Yes, this is an option that many newly-weds choose. Most of the time, they want their first year to settle into marriage before they order their wedding album. There is no rush whatsoever and you can hit me up with a message whenever you’re ready to gcan we order



I’m really looking forward to hearing from you

If you are a couple that values intimate, relaxed and romantic photography, then we will be the perfect fit.
