I LIKE IT
WHAT IS IT?
PERSONALITY > POSING
SUBSTANCE OVER STYLE
I create images that my couples, families + friends connect with – beyond simply creating a visually ‘pretty’ photograph. I prefer photos with substance over style.
I tell stories led by characters that make you feel something, rather than just a photo of what something or someone looked like.
I’m unobtrusive, but also not a total pain to be around.
Choosing to spend your life with another human being isn’t a unicorn, crapping heart-shaped confetti glitter, over a perfect double rainbow (although it would be kinda awesome).
Instead, I choose to focus on a raw, genuine + less posey side of relationships.
I mean… you *might* pose romantically together all the time (you lie) but I rather understand your little ‘in’ jokes + get to know you guys on a real level than just brute force a bunch of cliché poses for the sake of convenience + tradition.
I photograph “love” a lot (like… a lot) so my definition of it is important because it inevitably contributes to creating relaxed wedding photography that is an authentic representation of who you are, not just a generic cliché set of images.
Humans are designed to communicate, socialise + engage with other humans so it’s inevitable we feel a connection to portraits of people where we can sense genuine energy or element of their characteristics.
To me… “love” is laughing till you snort at yourselves. It’s vedging out on the sofa together on a Friday night, binging on Netflix + not wanting to be anywhere else in the world.
It’s also rating each other’s farts.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1) [INSERT COIN]
2) We hang out like normal human beings + I learn all your secrets.
3) I put laughter laxatives in your drink.
4) Camera boy goes click-click.
5) I hang out with your mates + family + I showcase my vast array of blending-in abilities.
6) I capture your memories in a box, like an absolute creep.
7) You have a totally above average day + we all move on with our lives.
I only work with a limited number of couples every year so I can focus on a small group of people in a way that allows me to take the time to get to know you better + create genuine portraits, full of life, character + authentic expression.
I avoid photos that feel
It's basically the exact opposite of a doughnut.
But mostly it's...

YOU ARE NOT JUST "ANOTHER COUPLE"
