Your wedding day is far more than a carefully chosen dress, it is about the tears that were shed, the laughter that was heard and the small hugs that were felt. I'll ensure that this is not forgotten.

Photography Style

Reportage / Documentary
Full Description
I have a strong documentary approach; no photoshop manipulations, special filters or effects, and I like to be as unobtrusive as possible. This enables me to capture those real moments between yourselves, and your closest friends and family. I don’t have formulas or lists of photographs that need to be covered, I concentrate on your day and your day alone. I don’t work according to set hours - I am there to record the most important day of your lives and to ensure I capture every magical moment.

What is your most memorable wedding?

The wedding of Mike and Mandy photographed on the beach in Natal, South Africa

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Emotive, spontaneous, creative, honest

What about your business are you most proud of?

The moment I see a couples face when I first show them their photographs and how much the photographs mean to them

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always keep to a tight schedule. There al lot of people working behind the scenes keeping events running smoothly. Any change in time has a chain effect all the way down.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once the couple have decided that I am going to photograph their wedding I like to see them at the various locations of their wedding at the same time that the events are going to take place on the day . This gives me an opportunity to discuss locations for photographs and assess the lighting conditions. This also gives me an impromptu opportunity to do a few casual photographs of the couple as a taster of whats to come .

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

When the bride and groom are oblivious to the camera and there is a real moment between the two of them

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

With Robert and Hannah wedding, Hannah really wanted to incorporate her horse into the wedding shoot. While quite tricky on the day because you are always shooting under very tight time restraints, it was worth it as you can see in the results.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

The weather is part of the day. when I photographed Mike and Mandy on the beach there was a howling wind . This enables me to capture some really fun shots with Mandy's dress and veil blowing in the wind

Describe how you got into photography.

My entire family is a creative one . All of us work in a creative industry . My form of creative expression became my camera .
