wedding photography

How I do things.....

My style of wedding photography is all about documenting YOUR day, your style, your love. As every wedding is different it's so important to me that I capture your wedding in a way that fits how you want it to be remembered. 

I love to capture all the emotions! The love, the laughter, family and friends coming together for such a special time in a couples life. I felt so honored to be apart of it, I loved capturing all those treasured moments of the day for the couple to look back on for years to come. 

Our journey starts the moment you book me. if you need help planning in any way, wedding vendor recommendations, visits to the venue, an engagement shoot, Whatever you need I am here, Weddings can be stressful to plan but they don’t have to be! I want to get to know you both so I can capture your day to fit you personally. Then you can be relaxed and enjoy your day the way its meant to be!

~Lifestyle family sessions info ~

What booking in a Portrait photo shoot with me will be like.....
My style is relaxed, fun loving, lifestyle photography with a strong focus on people being natural . I’m not into that posy-posy stuff....sit here.....look at the camera.....don’t move....BORING!!!

My photo shoots are aimed towards families with young children, and, as you can tell from my existing work, I’m all about capturing moments. I love to capture kids being kids: having fun, playing, climbing trees, splashing in puddles, being thrown in the air by mum or dad! 
I also appreciate the quiet things in life: sitting together watching the waves, walking though the trees listening to the birds, taking a break to breastfeed the baby, or having a cuddle with the family pet.

In my shoots, the focus is on having a fun and relaxing time and enjoying each other’s company, with the added bonus that you get to keep a bunch of photos!

Shoot price includes parents and their children only (I don't do large group shoots). However, if Grannies and Poppas want to jump in on the fun and run around with their grandkids, they are more than welcome to come along too!
