Having the opportunity to be the photographer photographing a couples special day is such an amazing feeling. To me, the day doesn't feel like I am "working" I feel like I am watching and capturing a fairytale. From photographing the bride getting ready, the groom shedding a tear as he sees his almost wife walking down the aisle. Wedding days are my favourite days. With a certification from New York Institute in photography, I am so ready to start snapping away at any wedding that comes my way. 

Frequently asked questions

Do you work with an assistant?

Yes, every wedding I shoot my assistant/second shooter Storm comes with me. With weddings it can be difficult to be in two places at once, Storm is a big help.

Do you travel for weddings?

I most certainly do. I love visiting different parts of this beautiful country of ours. I’m up for travelling anywhere in the world for your big day!

Do you choose the photos that we will recieve?

Yes! with thousands of photos to choose from it is alot easier for me to select which are the best photos for you.

Have you studied photography?

I graduated from the New York Institute of Photography majoring in wedding photograhy in September of 2019.

What if we arent comfortable in front of a camera?

No need to worry. I am sensitive to the fact that most of my clients are not professional models and not used to being photographed for an entire day. There are certain parts of the day that just ‘happen’ and I am there to document these moments in as beautiful a way as possible. Some of my favourite photos from the wedding day usually end up being the ‘unposed’ ones. Having said that, there are certain parts of the day like the couple photos or bridal portraits where my clients appreciate a little bit of guidance as to what to ‘do’ but the objective would be to create an environment for the clients to interact and be present in the moment. I might tell you a joke or two, I am a total sucker for laughing photos. A little tip: An engagement shoot before the day of your wedding can also be a great way of getting used to being in front of the camera but this is not essential, you don’t have to do any homework or feel like you have to know what to ‘do’, you can leave it up to me.

How do we book?

You can use the contact form or send me an email directly using the details on the ‘contact’ page. Let me know where and when you’ll be getting married (if you’ve decided yet) and I will send you my package details. Should you like to book, kindly let me know which package you’d like to take and I will send you my contract which you can sign and send back to me when paying your 50% non refundable booking fee.
