My approach to shooting is a little bit different.
I don't want to be a random at your wedding that you only meet once in your life. I want to give you an experience that makes you all excited and want to happy dance. Take some time to reach through how I approach each story I tell and see what you can except. I am nothing but transparent with you so if you don't think we are the right fit for each other; no hard feelings! I want you to have the best experience with your photographer/videographer as it can be reflected in the memories you get back.
You deserve a photographer and videographer that is going to be there for you; you deserve more than just a basic experience; and that is what I am here for.
The way I shoot is focused on intimate and real moments. I don't want to force moments that look like they belong on a Christmas card. It’s the real good stuff. We create together. Although I can take beautiful images putting you in front of a cool sunset, that’s not my jam. Even though I could just show up to your wedding and be a fly on the wall and get good shots, that’s just not who I am. This isn’t going to be an afternoon full of posing. I’m not going to be making you to turn to the right a little bit and smile at me on your wedding day, while making sure your dress is always laying perfectly flat. It’s way, way more than that to me. If you’re just wanting a photographer to show up and get the typical, posed, smiling “perfect looking” shots, we might not be the best fit.
I don't want to be a photographer you meet once and never talk to again and I don't want you to be a client that hired me once and I never saw again. We are friends. Connection and trust is at the centre of every shoot. I know every photographer says this but I care so much about the people that trust me to capture their love. No two love stories are the same, and no two sessions are the same. I create every session tailored to the couple and their unique personalities. I want this to be a collaborative job; creating magic together. I want you to feel comfortable and at the end of the day, have an amazing time. a, walk out with hundreds of memories you will cherish forever. A photo session doesn't have to be awkward. You may have butterflies at the beginning but I know that by the end, you will walk out confident and ready for round two!
You deserve a one of a kind experience, not a one size fits all kind of package. Every couple has their own unique story, and deserves to be captured as such.
I tend to attract couples that like to break tradition. The world is your oyster and whether that means having a first ping pong match instead of a first dance, hiring a food truck for dinner, or having a pool party as your reception. You want to see each other before the ceremony? Let's do it! Don't like cake? Who needs it! Your day should be free of opinions, traditions and things that make you feel uncomfortable. You should be celebrating your love however you want and in whatever way that makes your day feel like your own. I want you to be able to look back at these photos for decades and feel the love you feel for each other right now. I want them to be meaningful to you.This is your day. And I will be there as your number one supported and to capture it all.
I know what you are thinking. Why are photography and videography so expensive? And I completely understand. But it is more than something on your checklist. It is more than a centrepiece, or flowers, or dresses. It is all about your memories. It is the one thing you get to keep and reflect on for years to come. I know so many couples who went with a cheap photographer or videographer and regretted it and ended up requesting a reshoot from me. As you get older and have children and then grandchildren; this is something they will cherish forever; it is your legacy and lasting heirloom. This is a lifelong investment and one I promise you won't regret. I am not the cheapest option and that's okay. You deserve a photographer that is going to be there with you every step of the way whilst creating emotional, magical and timeless masterpieces.
Every couple's story is different; I don't want to paint you with the same brush. My style revolves around capturing your love and uniqueness. So in saying this, I wouldn't say I have one set style. I make sure that the way I’m interacting, shooting, and editing is reflective of who my couples are and how things actually felt. It’s a lot of small little things like this that go a long way. The artistic choices I make aren’t to benefit me because these are your memories, not mine. I focus on quality over quantity so we can create something together you’ll value forever.
I only take on a few weddings and elopements per year, and I only take on a few sessions per month. I do this because I want to focus on giving each and every one of my couples an experience they will never forget. I don't want you to become just another client; I want to get to know you, become friends, create a memorable experience. I don’t feel it’s fair to my clients if I’m overbooking myself because, in the end, they won’t be getting my best work if I’m physically, mentally, and creatively exhausted. I want to be the best version of me; for you.
Planning a wedding is so much fun; but also super stressful! Chances are... this is probably your first rodeo and you are only just figuring this stuff out as you go. However, you are in luck! I have been shooting weddings since I was 15 so I know a thing of two about the things to do; and not to do, and just general wedding planning business. I am going to be here for you no matter what. So reach out; tell me about your plans, your difficult decisions and all the in between. I'll be here for you each step of the way; whether it is a big or small one. I want to make sure I can make this the most stressless process of your life!
