WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER? I spent years studying fine-art and found photography to be a natural progression in my creative studies, and wedding photography incorporated all of my favourite things: art, fashion, travel and love. Once I photographed my first celebration, I was hooked!
TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR PATH TO GET THERE: After photographing a few celebrations for friends and family, I started to find my voice and style. One of the biggest influences on that journey was shooting film, allowing me to have a more refined and artistic approach to a wedding day.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? Elegant, timeless images that evoke beauty and real emotion.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT WEDDINGS? Amidst the beauty, the style and the incredible destinations I have been lucky enough to travel to, at the heart of a wedding is just two people madly in love with each other. It's a rare gift to be surrounded by so much joy and love, and I am incredibly thankful to be a part of it.
