The story and celebration of your love and connection is so important
A fun, intimate and honest documentary of your wedding day:
Your wedding is an epic celebration of your connection and the love you have for each other.
It’s a day that is just yours together, something that you have collaborated to create with each other, and you can’t wait to celebrate with your friends and families.
It will be super emotional.
There’s a good chance that your voice will waver as you say your vows, that your fiance will fight back the tears as you walk down the aisle, that one of your relatives will share a slightly inappropriate story, and there’s a 100% chance that everyone be holding their breath waiting for you to appear, that you will be radiant in your love from the moment you set eyes on each other and that the day you’ve waited so long for will be over in the blink of an eye.
Getting up close and personal, documenting the fleeting moments and celebrating the relationships we have with each other is what I do.
These are not your traditional everybody-smiling-at-the-camera kind of photos (though we get those too), but a more fun, intimate, and honest documentary of you and your loved ones in this moment.
l work to capture the little moments with just as much care as the big moments.
To capture the best of both worlds with epic artwork-worthy images and the timeless candid moments that make up the experience of your wedding day.
I’ll guide you when you need it and fade into the background while you experience every moment with your all.
Working with me, you can relax and be fully present in enjoying the biggest celebration of your relationship knowing that that your photographer is capturing the real, raw emotion, the seconds that make up the moments, the moments that make up your story, the whole feeling of that day that has been months or years in the planning.
As a specialist people-photographer, I document the treasured moments of your life and create photos you will enjoy forever.
The base package is 6 hours of photography with one photographer (that’s me!).
You can then choose to add on extra hours (up to 10 total hours), a second photographer, and products such as albums and prints. Build the package that fits your day!
Prices start at $2600. Contact me for more information.
A complementary engagement session valued at $400 is included with every package. This is my way of saying thanks for booking, a great way for us to get to know each other a little better before your big day. You get an awesome experience to enjoy together, and amazing photos too, obviously!
Getting to know you is so important to me, so I meet with every one of my wedding clients in person or via video call to find out what’s important to you and together we plan the best way to document your wedding day.
You’ll receive my wedding guide with everything you need to know about working with me and I give you tonnes of tips, advice and local recommendations developed over my years working in the wedding industry.
I only book a limited number of weddings each year to ensure that I can give you the best experience possible.
All of your photos are delivered digitally in a password protected gallery – from here you can save and share your photos with friends and family right away, highlight your favourites and order your prints and additional products. This is part of our commitment to sustainability and reducing e-waste. Read more about this here.
