What’s something you’d love every couple to know about wedding photography?
Most people don’t realise that I get to spend the most amount of time with you on your wedding day. I practically have a front row seat to an amazing show, and for me this isn’t work, it’s an absolute honour!
What should couples keep in mind when planning this part of their wedding?
Photography is a vital part of your wedding day. Cakes get eaten and dresses get worn, but the way your wedding is documented will speak to future generations. You want your day to be captured accurately, beautifully, and completely. You will most often regret the things you didn’t do, but I can assure you, you’ll never regret hiring an awesome photographer!
How do you create a great experience for your couples?
I’m a details girl! I love to send my couples little surprises in the mail, and I really love getting to know them in the lead up to the day. I also try to create a relaxed and happy atmosphere on the day, making sure they are calm (and fed). If all else fails, I have a long string of terrible dad jokes to make them laugh…
What do your couples say they love most about what you do?
I love this quote by David Alan Harvey, “Dont shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like.” My clients have always said I’ve managed to capture the emotion of the day. I get teary texts from happy couples and heartfelt emails from mothers of brides and grooms all saying the same thing! Couples also rave about how much fun they had shooting with me (must be all those awesome dad jokes!).
What’s your best advice for couples planning their wedding right now?
1. Don’t get sucked into the trap of the ‘big white dress’. Your wedding is your wedding, so do it your way! There is no right or wrong way to have a wedding – the only wrong thing about it is if you’re doing it to please everyone else.
2. Don’t stress about the weather – you can’t change it anyway!
3. Have fun! It’s the start of your marriage to the love of your life – be present and enjoy spending time with your friends and your family. Things will go wrong, but if you anticipate this, you’ll have the best day – and that’s the point, right?

I love being a wedding photographer! It’s such an exciting thing to be a part of someone’s wedding journey…to help them, guide them, serve them. Its definitely more than just a job for me.
I adore my couples! I absolutely believe in having real relationships that go beyond the wedding day. As a small business owner I pride myself on personal touches and authenticity.
No wedding is too small, or too far away. I have photographed weddings throughout Australia, in Fiji, New Zealand, and Las Vegas USA.
