I like to think of myself as the documentary photographer of your big day. Between poses and outfit changes, I’m always on the lookout for those moments of spontaneous quirk, humour or overwhelming emotion. To me, beauty lies in those tiny glitches in time; in the loud crack of a belly laugh, in mischevious glances shared across a room, in a stray tear threatening to spill over or in a rebellious strand of hair that keeps falling delicately onto a lace-covered shoulder. Beauty nestles into the nooks of daily imperfections, especially when it comes to love and life-long commitment. It’s that subtle energy and authenticity I’m always looking to capture with my lense.

Needless to say, the years I spent travelling and frolicking in the countryside have had a tremendous impact on the way I seek, perceive and capture beauty. Whenever I can, I try to get my couples outside and interacting with natural landscapes. After all, few things mirror the strength, fragility and singularity of love with the precision and grandiosity of a stunning landscape.

I want your story to be captured with the delicate poetry and light of a movie or dream; honing in on the texture and grain of your chemistry, on the blurry edges of your collected momentos and memories. My years studying film, fine arts and photography have no doubt had an impact on the way I look at photographic narration and storytelling. But fundamentally, no academic understanding of aesthetic and light can truly teach you the importance of genuine trust between a photographer and the people she captures. That’s why I put your ease and comfort at the very heart of our time together, creating a relaxed and safe space for a couple to feel vulnerable and natural. Only then can I have the priviledge of witnessing and documenting your truest chemistry; the succession of tiny moments and unsaids that have made you choose one another in the first place.

If you’re curious about straying away from traditional wedding photography and you’re looking for a creative rendition of your special day that’s just as unique and intricate as your relationship is, I would love to hear from you.
