We are both Kiwis and I have been in the wedding photography and portrait photography business full time since 2016 after completing my Diploma in Photography. I shoot on a Camera 5D mark iv.
I picked up a camera for pretty much the first time when I decided to go on my big O.E. to Europe in 2004. It was a Nikon DSLR and used film. It was a bit of a pain carrying rolls of film around for 4 months and a little bit of suspense when I came back to New Zealand to process all my photos at the camera shop.
Before becoming a photographer, I was a legal secretary for over a decade. The working to deadlines and organisation skills I learnt from this job has helped me coordinate and organise weddings. I can't stress enough how important it is to be organised for your wedding, before the actual day. I can help you with this, but ultimately we need to know timings and everything about your special day. By knowing every detail about your wedding, it means that I have an overview and know where to be and when.
I see myself as a photographer who will turn up and come and shoot YOUR PRECIOUS MOMENTS. As each moment is different, I don't want the photos to be 'staged' or typical. Every event is different because every person is unique and YOUR photos should reflect YOU, not me. All I do is frame that with a particular eye. To me photos should be a beautiful and heightened version of the reality of your event, but still very much about you. I will work with you and ask you what type of shoot you want and photos that you are drawn to, however as it is about you, I will make it unique to you.
I live in old Botany Downs, Auckland, New Zealand.
I love to travel and have been lucky to visit Australia, Pacific Islands, Asia, Europe, South America, America, Canada.
I adore animals and have one cat, named Gracie. Featured I have been featured in Shutterturf's top wedding photographers in Auckland
