My passion is capturing people’s stories through my lens. My philosophy is to offer fresh, natural, documentary style photography that is timeless yet contemporary. I am there to tell your story in images, to capture those beautiful, special moments, emotions and details that will be treasured for years to come.
I am drawn to the beauty of natural light and love to shoot in locations that show this off, whether it is a beach, park, urban setting or somewhere a little more unusual. Along with some gentle direction I will encourage you to relax and be yourselves while I snap away. I love capturing those in-between moments, which gives my photography the candid style I favour.
Although based in Auckland, I also spend a lot of time in the Coromandel, in particular Whangamata, where I was married myself. Bitten with the travel bug, I am open to any national and international enquiries – I love destination weddings!
If you want your story captured by me, then lets chat!
