Travelling was my doorway into photography. It all started when my partner gifted me a camera to document a year-long adventure abroad...and I haven’t put it down since. I loved capturing the little slices of culture, landscapes and people that I encountered on my adventure, showcasing the vibrancy and magic of the world around us.

I adore travelling and experiencing new cultures. Human connection has always fascinated me, specifically the unique interplay of love and its many expressions. Love of your partner, your friends, your family. Each type is distinctly beautiful and moving in its own way.

I was drawn to wedding photography because these momentous, emotive and explosively celebratory occasions are when you get to witness the full spectrum of this transformative emotion.

For me, shooting destination weddings and elopements combines the intrepid spirit of travel photography with the unbridled power of human connection, a union that continues to inspire me each and every day. As an international wedding photographer, I feel most alive when I’m shooting a beautiful couple, gracefully styled in an amazing setting. Although it may be miles off the beaten path, it’s where I feel most at home.

About me

You’re trusting me with an incredibly important job; I want to return that trust by giving you images you’ll keep close to your heart for a lifetime.

I’m not like anyone else and neither are you. I’ll never treat you like you’re just a day in my calendar, another job to tick off. I’ll be there with you in the lead-up to your wedding, offering help, guidance, the odd hilarious GIF and a steady shoulder to lean on.

I won’t tell you how to pose or make you hold an awkward position while I find my shot. You are the shot. I think it’s more important to build up a sense of trust and a bond of friendship with my couples. Whatever the natural expression of your connection may be, that’s what I’ll capture.

Being able to travel the world with couples in love is what I live for - but it only works for me if it works for you. I want to capture the passion of those who believe that every moment matters - from the riotous applause of the first kiss to a shared, intimate laugh. Nothing lasts forever but photos allow us the opportunity to relive our most cherished memories. For me, that’s worth everything. If you feel the same way, I’d love the opportunity to tell your story.
