THE GIRL BEHIND THE CANON

SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT…

I thought I’d give you something a little more interesting than your average photographer’s bio, so I’ve racked my brain to think of a few fun facts about little ‘ole me. And because I bloomin’ love a list, I’ve separated them into what I reckon are positives and not-so-positives for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!

The Sweet

  • I am most proud of being a mum to my two little boys – Elijah and Axel – the absolute loves of my life. Even if they do drive me up the wall sometimes!

  • I am passionate about what I do – and I have yet to get through a whole wedding without tearing up just a little…

  • I find working with other people’s children easy (my background in teaching helps there!) – my own boys are a different story altogether when having their photos taken!

  • I used to sing in a 10-piece funk and soul band in my spare time

  • I know all the words to The Rocky Horror Picture Show – I can do a mean Frank N. Furter if I do say so myself… (and yes, this is totally in my good list…)

  • I get day-long bursts of energy/adrenaline when shooting. Being a wedding photographer and bouncing all over the place, this is the secret sauce (although I am prone to a photographer’s hangover in the morning where my thighs feel the BURN from all the acrobatics!) Totally worth it though.

The Sour

    • I HATE having my photo taken – I am MUCH more comfortable behind the camera, thank you very much!

    • Ever since having kids, I cry at EVERYTHING! I think I’d make a good actress…
    • I drop vague film references into conversation that very few people ever get.

    • My sense of humour can be a little dark and dry… This could mean that we get along very well…

    • I’m a total metal-head – give me a mosh pit over a dancefloor any day – actually, give me both!

    • I don’t even want to think about what my life would be like without dry shampoo…

Getting the Shot…

 

Yes, a groom and I laughed about the possibility of capturing some of his ‘must-have’ shots from the lake… And then it happened… (and I’d do it again – I’m a sucker for a little adventure!)

The Method to the Madness

 

My style is partly documentary – capturing the little moments that you may not have been part of on the day and that you can look back on as a couple and smile / belly laugh / shake your heads at! I love to get right in there and shoot the love and fun while being unobtrusive and relaxed. One of the MOST important things for me is to get right in there and capture the feelings and emotions of your special day so that when you look back at your images or album, you are totally back there in the moment.

 

At your wedding, you will totally see me rocking my awesome Spider Camera Holster – making sure I get ALLLLL the shots and feeling like a quick-draw master while I’m at it.

I would love to travel the globe in my quest to photograph the most beautiful weddings – full of fun, laughter and loved-up couples! If you are planning an elopement, get in touch – I’d love to hear from you!

Let’s say ‘I do’…

 

When shooting weddings, I like to keep my eyes peeled to capture the moments that the couple may miss on the day. Weddings are so packed full of fun, love and things to do, that they fly by in an absolute whirlwind. My job is to capture all that loveliness for you to look back on and remember, and even to include some surprises for you to see for the very first time!

I love to capture the little moments that mean the most; a smile between family, a first kiss as newlyweds, a whispered secret between siblings and mostly, just plain silliness! What can I say, I just love ‘LOVE’! It makes me so happy to be able to share in the joy and provide people with memories and keepsakes to last a lifetime.

A work of heart…

 

During a shoot, I like to take the lead from my clients. I love to take a step back and capture natural, unposed images so you can treasure the true personalities of the people involved.

I am more than happy to give little posing suggestions and tweaks (a slight hand movement here, or a sneaky leg shift there), to really show you off in your best light. I won’t let the session come to a close until I am sure I have captured the best of you and your loved ones.

I love what I do, and I want you to love it too! Let’s work together to create the most beautiful and unique images for you to treasure forever…
