Choosing the Right Photographer
Selecting the right photographer for your special day is crucial. Your Wedding Day isn't a photo shoot; it's a day dedicated to you and your partner, and I'm committed to ensuring it stays that way. I understand the time and investment you've put into this, and I can assure you, I'll deliver.

My photography style combines elements of photojournalism and natural photography, complemented by a touch of fashion and creative lighting—all woven together with my discreet approach to wedding photography.

I'll be there for every part of your day, from the early morning preparations to the dancefloor madnessI know when to blend into the background and when to step up for that perfect shot—mixing those occasions up is not in my playbook.

Most importantly, I'm easy to work with. No big ego or overbearing personality here; in fact, I lean towards the introverted side. There's no 'big persona' taking over your day, no cheesy vibes, and no unnecessary interference. I can be as involved or as discreet as your day requires.

Let's make your wedding day uniquely and authentically yours.

How far in advance should I contact you?
Venue, Celebrant, Photographer! We book up really fast. As soon as you have confirmed your date you should confirm your photographers availability. My diary is usually open for 3 to 4 years in advance.
Will it definitely be you shooting my wedding?
Yes. 100%. Unless I am physically unable to attend your wedding day it will be me turning up and shooting. I dont double book dates and then send associates and in over 10 years I havent missed a wedding.
