With music being my sole creative outlet up until my late 20s, my passion for photography started later than I wish it had, but strangely began years earlier in video. As the dedicated family videographer back when I was a teenager, the only one with any patience to operate my dad's camcorder.
I did not know then how infectious this would become later in life. ​ 
My love of photography actually started with my first camera, a Kodak Advantix back in 2001. A glorified disposable camera really. The highlight feature being the ability to capture panoramas; then on film of course. A year after this I purchased my first digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix - I forget the exact model, but I do know, from the pictures I still have this sparked into becoming an obsession. ​

Roll on to today, I cannot help in taking a photograph of every tiny detail that catches my eye. This has been a common thread throughout my photographic career, be it professionally or personally. I absolutely love the ability to take snippets of our lives and permanently record them to look over later. It is a constant reminder of the beauty in the world around us, and I cannot wait to capture even more.

Many years ago, I was asked to photograph a friends wedding, as i'd previously photographed events and already had a deep love of photography, I thought 'why not'. But then the reality and gravity, of what I'd been asked to do, set in. I decided that I would treat my first wedding as if it was our own wedding, with the care and respect that comes with it. I still adhere to this now, I treat all my weddings as if they are my own. I feel like you are family, if only for a day, you deserve the absolute best.

We believe candid photography is the best photography. 
Those spontaneous, in-between moments, will stand the test of time, and last forever. 
We aim to be part of your day, and treat it as if it is our wedding, not create art for our portfolio. 
This is YOUR day, THE BEST day of your life, and we want to CAPTURE it for you.
