A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
Comma. Semicolon. Full stop. A pause is so simple, and yet essential to any good story. It is that brief moment when you take a deep breath and just let everything sink in. I think my job as a family and wedding photographer is a lot like those punctuation marks; to be unnoticeable and yet breathe so much life into a story. Your story.
A photograph has this unique ability of bridging time and space to release the wave of memories and emotions contained within that fleeting moment. A moment that can help sustain you through all the ups and downs of life. That’s because photographs serve as a reminder of what was. These images are about you and telling your story in all its raw and beautiful glory so that you have tangible memories. From the way your partner holds you to the way they make you laugh, you should have these memories you can hold on to forever: ones that you can feel in your hands, share with friends and your future generations.
I take pictures of what happens on your wedding day, and for the much of the day, you won’t even notice me. When I do steal you away for creative, fun and elegant couple portraits, I focus on bringing out the little moments and expressions that define your personalities and relationship.
Never the stereotypical photographer, I always do what it takes to ensure everyone I am photographing is having fun and is comfortable around me. Having done my fair share of sewing bridesmaids into dresses to getting anti-photo grooms and ushers to cut loose, I know how to handle a crisis. I’m a people person, and you can rest easy knowing your day will be epic, you and your guests will be natural in front of me, and you’ll have amazing photos to remember it all.
Pre-wedding engagement sessions and family photography are a perfect break from the chaos of everyday life. It is an opportunity for you to have fun and to make memories.
We do a lot of talking, laughing – and in general – goof around during these sessions. I ask questions to get to know the nuances of your relationship and come up with some silly prompts to bring those out in a way that feels completely authentic to you. I’ll never ask you to ‘act natural’ and I don’t do pose after pose, but I do set you two up to look absolutely bang-tidy in the resulting images. I’ve got a bag full of tricks and tips that I’ve picked up over the last decade to make you look your absolute best so that you’re sure to love the photographs.
Take a gander at the engagement gallery and family gallery for more information and to see some of the lovely images I’ve captured of people just like you.
Choosing a photographer to capture your memories? That might queue anxiety. Especially if this is for your wedding. But whatever you’re photography needs, know that I’m happy to chat with you about it all. You can sit down with me virtually or in person at a local café.
If you’re here looking for a wedding photographer, one of my biggest focuses in the lead up to the day is to help you create a timeline that flows smoothly and naturally. Every wedding is unique, but no matter what, it should be remembered as a day of pure happiness, laughter and love. My goal is to take the stress away and help you make the day your own kind of epic love story.
