Its All About You! Capture the day I understand that your wedding day is your day, it’s all about you so I acknowledge that and take it into consideration. I’m hired by you so please don’t be afraid to ask me anything. I photograph your special day as it happens, as non-intrusive as possible & capture wonderful moments unfold to eventually be looked back upon with great memories. Each wedding has it’s own unique touch of style and decoration that really makes the day magical. Each of my packages all come with my personal attention which include a pre-wedding meet to discuss thoughts, get to know each other and have a chat. I’m a very relaxed, bubbly friendly person who is easy to speak too! All of which has a huge impact with your family & guests on your special day. "To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
