As a people photographer, it is my hope to catch those genuine smiles, the tearful faces, the energy, the happiness and the love in a simple, visual narrative. To document and weave a story of light, grace and mood, the feelings and details that are particular to you and your love. To work as your ‘memory keeper’, so you can recall in years to come the most important things, those emotions and experiences again and leave a legacy that will become even more valuable to the generations yet to come.
Your photographs should reflect the truth and emotion of the day. I’m so fortunate to have had clients who put their trust in me completely with that. Artistically, I look for a certain luminosity in the light, a feeling, almost like the softness of a remembered dream. As a lover of the classics and art, I’m always hoping for moments and portraits that will stand the test of time. Coming from a magazine background I like to create photographs with an editorial eye – carefully curated stories, consistent in style and tone.
I also understand that you want natural photos without hours of posing, The one thing that I love to hear from clients time and time again, is that having portraits taken was easy and a really enjoyable part of the day. I like to get to know my clients so I can shoot quickly and with intentionality on the day.
My favourite photos are the ones where the love shines out of them. Whether that be the love between couples, between a parent and child, or even that spiritual bond between people and place. There’s always the challenge to find the unique story in everything. No two relationships are the same and it’s those unique connections that I look for. Of course I also enjoy shooting flowers, dresses and cake.
