Love brings me joy

Documentary wedding photographer documenting love

The look of admiration in movies, forehead kisses, magical first looks, the joining together of cultures and families, hand squeezes, first dances, and stories told by loved ones during speeches.

Love brings me so much joy & I could not be more thankful to play a small part in my clients' love story.

My Wedding Photography Style


What if your wedding photos looked exactly how your day felt?


My photos capture the warmth, movement, energy and joy of your day, from the laughter to the tears. The nervous anticipation to the relief once you say 'I do'.


A seamless blend of documentary and editorial is my forte.

I capture images with a candid, detail-oriented and documentary-style eye. Alongside this, I'll tie in elements of editorial and modern posing and framing.


What does that leave you with? You'll have a gallery of effortless cool, film-like black and white shots interspersed with warm, emotion-evoking images. With beautiful light and attention to detail always.

What you can expect from me


Confident, joyful, prepared


My biggest priority is ensuring my couples always feel comfortable and at ease. Open, honest communication about your comfort level with having your photo taken is key and it's one of the first things I ask my couples to make sure that we're on the same page.


I aim to be a source of guidance, friendship and ultimately an advocate for your peace and positive experience on your wedding day. I won't take you away from your guests for too long - 10-15 minutes is usually more than enough time for couples portraits (but I'm always happy to photograph for longer!)


On your wedding day you can expect me to be prepared, confident and enthusiastic - it's the most exciting day of your life! I love interacting with your loved ones and making sure they feel comfortable with me too.
