Description

Although big weddings have their place, they can often come with a lot of outside pressures from society and family. Rather than being about you, it can quickly turn into a production you put on for others and can cause you to lose focus of what’s most important; your love. That’s what’s beautiful about elopements and intimate weddings. They strip down a wedding day to just that.

Part of my why is to empower couples to ditch expectations of a traditional wedding and focus on creating an unforgettable experience with your love at the centre. This means I am usually very involved in the planning process and work alongside you to help this vision of your dream wedding come to life! Practically this can include scouting locations, working to find the best lighting and finding other vendors.

Rather than just showing up to do a job, I focus on building a relationship with my clients. Because when you trust me and feel comfortable to be yourselves, that’s when the magic happens! After all, your wedding day is one of the most intimate and special days in your life and you deserve a friend to be there, not a stranger. With my couples we usually end up become life long friends and keep in touch long after their wedding day which I love!

If you’ve seen my work, you’ll know my style is super natural and laid back, nothing too posed or stiff! This is because I focus on creating an experience which will bring out those natural moments of joy and laughter, rather than forcing you to smile.

Throughout the day I give direction on what to do, but I am pretty hands off in my approach. So it gives you guys a chance to connect and have a fun time together and allows me to really capture those real moments.

I don’t want to offer complicated packages. My mission is to tell your story and capture those incredible moments that happen, even the ones you didn’t notice. When you receive your photos and look back on the day, you’ll be so immersed in the memories it’ll be as if you’re right there doing it all over again!
