Full Description
I'm a storytelling & natural moment wedding photographer that loves to capture weddings as they happen. No forced smiles or cheesy poses. For most of your wedding day I document the day and make sure I capture all the smiles, the tears and the love. I also like to bring it for the portraits and create some epic looking images that you will treasure forever. As standard, I like to get there early and stay until late to make sure I tell the whole story of your day. I offer second shooter packages also and have albums available. Take a look at for plenty of full wedding stories and hopefully I'm exactly what you are looking for :)
