I Love photographing weddings, the joy, the tears and the romance, I LOVE IT. Being a more down to earth kind of girl, I will bring my easy going, fun and relaxed personality. This along with utilising artistic techniques and quality I will capture those moments and emotions. So that long after the flowers have wilted you can look back and remember your special day.

Portrait Photography

For special occasions, a family event, the true essence of your family or just because you want to capture that moment and create everlasting images. Photographing people is definitely something I love, every person has a different character and bringing that out in my photos is the most fun part. I love going out into the big wide world, a park, the beach even your back yard using the natural light available to us and creating a master piece, a portrait to last a lifetime.
