Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.
– David Alan Harvey
Wedding days are full of emotions!
I love and adore weddings and all that they are! However I only do a select number of weddings each year. I have no desire to be a production line wedding photographer. I prefer to genuinely connect with the couple to create natural and beautiful images that they will love- almost as much as each other!
Your wedding will be *YOUR* wedding- not “just another wedding”. I select couples that click (pun intended!) with me and my way of working.
I believe in working with you both prior-firstly by providing a wedding consultation and I also offer a complimentary engagement session. I believe the engagement session is an important part of the process, it allows you to see if I am the right photographer for you. If I am not the right photographer for you I am more than happy to refer you to others that I feel may suit you better.
As I limit the number of weddings I do each year- I am totally dedicated to those couples that choose to work with me.
Are you my type of couple?
* believe that your beautiful love story is worth preserving- for yourselves, for family and friends?
* have your own sense of style and are not dictated to by “wedding trends”
* know what is important to you?
* are not afraid to be yourself
* are pretty relaxed, and have a great sense of humour.
The majority of my couples to date have had outdoor or home weddings. Chocoholics also seem to be typical of the couples that choose to work with me. Most of my couples are located in Victoria or Tasmania- but I will travel any where if you would like me to capture the moments of your day- please drop me an email.
I work with couples who want to preserve their memories and feelings of the day in the finest handcrafted albums possible.
I use Queensberry- you can see the beauty here– and I will bring samples for you to drool over as part of the consultation process.
Am I your type of photographer?
It is so important to find the right photographer that suits you. Choosing your photographer is so much more than finding a photographer whose work you like. Your photographs will last longer than your flowers and dress. You need to feel relaxed and confident with the photographer you choose- this will result in better images!
I am not a “trendy” photographer- trends in wedding photography come and go. I basically ignore them!!! Most of my weddings are civil ceremonies held outdoors or held at home but what I love most of all is capturing a wedding that is truly reflective of the couple. They know this is their day and have made it their day rather than getting caught up in the whole “wedding industry” but do things creatively or differently.
The way I capture your story depends on you and your story.
My connection with you as a couple, understanding you both, what you like and dislike will inform how I approach telling your story.
I work in an unobtrusive manner while capturing beautiful imagery that tells the story of your day as it unfolds.
I do capture and respect moments. The moments you don’t see because you are in them! I love it when couples are surprised and amazed at the beauty in themselves when they forgot I was there.
If any of this makes sense to you and you would like to meet, please get in touch for a no obligation wedding consultation. I would love to meet you and hear about your plans for your special day. As I only schedule a limited number of weddings each year early bookings are advised.
