Real Moments – Real Emotions – Real Relationships

Telling the Story of Who You Are

My job is to tell the story of your wedding day and the emotions, relationships and moments that are you and your lover, you and your family, and you and your friends. It’s not so much about what you look like but who you all are, together.

Unobtrusive, Unstaged, Relaxed, Fun

A wedding day is a wedding day and not a photo shoot and it’s your day not mine. So I fit in unobtrusively, ensuring everyone is at ease with me and my cameras, I take photos of you, your family and friends as you know them…laughing, smiling, having fun and looking good!

“My Job is to give you wonderful images that evoke great memories and emotions
every time you look at them. I LOVE my Job!”

Telling Stories

In my style of photography, the emphasis is upon telling the story of your wedding day, and reflecting upon who you all really are. Reflecting the love you share with your family, your friends and each other. It’s about capturing those special moments and evoking memories every time you look at your photos in the years to come. It’s not so much about what you look like but who you all are, together.

Having Fun

I’m a very experienced wedding photographer living and working in Hawke’s Bay having moved here from UK in 2012. As a top UK wedding photographer I’d been telling the story of over 40 weddings a year for six years. Not just the story of a wedding, but a story of you all coming together to celebrate your marriage, your love, your relationships. To have fun and to remember.

Enjoy a Browse of my Work

Do have a browse through my work in my WEDDING PORTFOLIO where you’ll find my favourite images from six recent weddings and a collection of images from the various stages of a wedding day.

I BLOG all my weddings. Look for a TAG of venues where I’ve worked. Maybe your venue choices are there. Call me if you’d like any tips / recommendations. Happy to help.
