I like going to special events and telling someone's story in a creative/visually compelling way. I love seeing and capturing the genuine emotions, intimate relationships, and the friendships that people have formed. It's easy to forget all the details and moments throughout a big day. I enjoy being able to capture these moments and love seeing my clients relive the experience.
I have photographed many birthday parties. I put my full effort into making my subjects feel comfortable, and making the photography a fun experience. I enjoy getting candid photos of people having fun, especially when they're bringing it on the dance floor! I have also photographed many family portraits in the past. I put a lot of preparation and time into making the experience fun and getting nice smiles from the kids. I like to find quiet locations with great natural light, and beautiful scenery. I have photographed a number of weddings, both locally and internationally. I like to understand the vision of the bride and groom, and match it with the images that I specialise in producing. The day is all about the bridge and groom - I like to be unobtrusive, direct people when required, and make the whole experience organised, relaxed, and fun!
I photographed a wedding recently in Wellington, New Zealand which will be part of a SBS documentary called 'cross cultural weddings'. It is due to come out on SBS later this year.
