Full Description
My goal is to create a relaxed, pressure-free environment for you on your wedding day. Capturing you at your most natural and spontaneous, doing everything I can to make the experience fun and carefree. I work almost 100% with natural light, in natural settings where you can relax, play, and forget I'm there. I will be snapping away freely, capturing laughter, love, silliness, and pure joy.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Outdoor wedding at Lusty Beg

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, Creative, Friendly, Lifestyle, Natural

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am so proud of starting my own photography business with 2 kids under the age of 3 back in 2011! Taking the leap from employment to self employment was scary but the best thing I ever did!! I get to do what I love for work!!

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

My tip is to do things the way you want to! Lots of family & friends will have an opinion but it's your day do it your way

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love seeing images of the couple throughout a venue, in guest books, multi and different frames. The complimentary pre shoot I offer is great for this

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After sending you my brochure I would arrange a meet up over a coffee and have a chat. It's important that you like my personality too as I'm with you most of your day

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

I love a veil shot, a couple close and cosy under a veil is beautiful even if does feel a bit silly on the day. But my fav shots are just the natural one, real laughs instead of posed smiles

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

Pinterest has a lot to answer to thats all I'm saying lol

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Most venues now have instead space but grab an umbrella and get out for some shots too, your dress will dry out and the images last a lot longer. I don't mind getting wet lol

Describe how you got into photography.

I have always had a camera in hand from I was little with my little film camera, I get it from my dad. When I had my kids I knew it was the path I was suppose to take. I took some shots at my sisters wedding and everyone then encourage me to take it up professional. I set up a facebook page, went on some workshops and the rest is history, 7 years later I've shot nearly 100 weddings and countless family portraits.
