Relax, we've got this...

At the heart of any successful event / occasion is teamwork. 
Weddings are fun, but lets keep it real, they also take a ridiculous amount of planning - let me be your wing-woman along the way.
With over 500 weddings photographed, I know it takes more than just a top of the range camera and an eye for visuals to be a amazing photographer.
It is so much deeper than that. It is, understanding, reading the room, preparation, communication, dedications, energy, enthusiasm, love, passion, creative flare and people skills. It is an individual willing to put their career ahead of their own life.
It is early nights and self-care, continuous education and investment in myself, for you. 

Connected & involved...

Your wedding photography isn't just about gorgeous photographs that tell your story and capture your wedding day. For me, it is a journey, it is the whole experience. 
Aside from your partner, your photographer is the person you'll spend the most time with on your day, so ensuring we all connect is important. 
We get to know each other, initially via a pre-booking virtual meeting. 
From when we connect (if we connect), because this is a vital element of working with any photographer, I'm here alongside you. 
I'm not that photographer who stands in the corner, I'm part of your day. From the initial planning through to rocking that dance floor with you all. I'll communicate with your guests and be part of your day, putting them at ease and allowing you all to relax. 

110% Effective

Reliable and consistent, are qualities I look for when investing in anything, therefore I don't expect anyone to want any less when working with me.  
Given I have over a decade of experience photographing weddings, I only take on a low number of bookings. Once I have hit my capacity, I do close my books for the year. 
The system I have in place, creates a 'safe selection' process for both my potential clients and myself. Ultimately, guaranteeing we are a successful match. Even if we aren't a perfect fit, I happily advise on other photographers who may suit your requirements. It is nothing personal, I just know it is important there is a connection and you love my work ahead of committing to work with each other.
