I have had a love of imagery for as long as I can remember. My dad taught me how to use a camera when I was a kid and I used to follow him around watching him learning and taking photos. When I had my children I was constantly sticking a camera in their face and documenting their lives. Through the art of photography and journalling I recorded all the memories I could cling onto in the hopes that one day they would understand (if they ever questioned it) just how much I love them.
I was constantly asked to take peoples photographs but I never had the confidence to trust myself with such an important task of capturing moments for other people, even though I was dying to! So in 2015 I completed my Diploma in Photo Imaging and finally started living this dream of mine. My true passion in Photography is portraiture. I cannot describe the feeling I get when I capture an image of your faces that makes me gasp. I get so excited to share what I see in you, with you! To know that for the here and now those images will make you smile and truly see yourself, and that one day your future generations will look upon them with love & wonder.
So I guess it was a natural progression that I would end up being a Wedding Photographer. After all, it is people that I love, and there is no better way to create connections than to be there to witness and capture such a momentous day in your lives. I have an absolute ball at weddings, and my sole purpose is to not only capture your images but to be there to help guide you and support you through the whole process, ensuring your day is everything you could have dreamed of and more. I tie ties, do up cufflinks, lace up wedding dresses, fix bouquets, hold phones, umbrellas and anything you could think of. I am your one stop support shop, and yes, I carry scissors, needle and thread, safety pins and band aids!
I got you covered.
Being there to witness couples exchange vows in front of their loved ones is truly a blessing. I am right there alongside you crying and laughing with all the joy and emotion that weddings bring. From the smallest most intimate ceremonies, where I can also be your witness, to the biggest most fabulous events, I will be there for you. The day is yours to enjoy. Your day, your way.
My Island home is the perfect place to say your 'I DO'S'. I can help you with locations and organising the amazing group of wedding professionals we have on offer. But I also love to travel, so hit me up if you want me to roam.
I shoot with a Canon using natural light, and am obsessed with warm tones, sunsets and all the little things that make up the bigger picture.
I live with my husband Darren and have two children (of four) left at home now. We have a Border Collie puppy name Pippie and my favourite thing to do is beachcomb. I am a hoarder of shells (especially cowries) and most mornings I can be found wandering the beach with my Pippie girl discovering new things and having a swim.
