Any client testimonial/s you’d like to share?
“Thank you for your amazing time a commitment at the wedding on Saturday. Your love and dedication really showed in an amazing way.” – Lisa & Wes-Lee
“Thank you so much for being such a sweetie on Saturday. It’s not often I am bothered to write to suppliers after a wedding, but I am so impressed with you that I just had to tell you that I think you are really good at your job, clearly passionate about photography and your manner with the client was exceptional. Well done!” – Alexis (Wedding Coordinator)

“Just wanted to say thank you for the great service that you provided us. We were both thoroughly impressed and are very glad that we had you to be a part of our wedding. You went above and beyond to make the day run as smoothly as possible and we really appreciate that. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility with the creative shoot and we are really looking forward to seeing the pictures that you have taken. We wish you all the best with your business and we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know.” – Melissa & Lyle
Tell us what inspires you. Any websites, people or companies that you follow?
I love Instagram and there are a few people who I follow for inspiration. The best part is that the art of photography is done on numerous platforms. Whether it be on a cellphone or a DSLR – it’s all about perspective and that’s what I love about Instagram – you get to follow different people from different backgrounds and see life through their perspective through their lens.
What advice would you give Brides- and/or Grooms-to be?
Planning a wedding can be an exciting and nerve-racking experience – the main thing to remember is that the day is all about YOU! Don’t try to please family members or friends – this is YOUR day and it only happens once so make it one to remember! Photography is an extremely important aspect of your day. Your photographs will be the only memories you will have to look back on in years to come. When choosing your photographer remember that you are not just paying for the pictures, you are paying for creative behind the lens and you need to be comfortable with your photographer.
Plan your day so that you have the time to enjoy it! Give a little bit of extra time throughout the day so that you are not racing against the clock and have some time to just sit back and soak it all in.
