About

There is so much talk about styles of wedding photography. Are you a documentary wedding photographer? Are you a “styled/ editorial” wedding photographer? I don’t believe in either. I believe in capturing your day to look like it is true to being there. Does that mean that I believe that I have a “documentary” style of shooting? I believe that I do! But I also believe is capturing all those beautiful details that have been selected, created and curated by my clients. Their wedding day is an expression of who they are and I believe that all the little details should be honoured. I also believe in capturing tiny moments between dad and daughter, bride and groom or friends having a giggle in the corner. You see….if anything I would describe my style as capturing the entire day, in all its essence from the gorgeous shoes that the bride has selected and that make her feel beautiful, right through to the tears that are being shed by mom in the front pew.
It’s about a feeling. It’s about the tiny elements that are all placed together to create one magical day. I want the viewer of my work to look at the photos and feel as if they are there, experiencing the moment for the first time. And I want to capture all the tiny details that have been selected by my couples and their families.
I studied photography in 2001 for 4 years after which I moved to the UK where I worked for companies such as Nikon. After 5 years I moved to Cape Town where I now live. I have been shooting weddings for 7 years and I am loving every single moment. I have been featured in print publications such as Fair Lady Bride, Leef, Food & Home, True Love Bride and Cosmopolitan. I have travelled as far as San Francisco, Greece and Croatia to shoot weddings. I live in Salt River, Cape Town with my partner and our bulldogs (you can see more of them on Instagram)
Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope that we get to work together some day in the future!
