Because when you stop and look around you,
this life is pretty amazing.
I saw this quote in a shop a few years ago and it stopped me in my tracks. What a perfect way to sum up an idea that I’ve subconsciously lived my life by. The power of stopping for a moment… to take a deep breath… and look at this dazzling world around us. Doing this has always inspired and motivated everything I do in my life including my photography.
My husband once told me the two things he loves about me are:
1. My passion for people.
2. The fact I notice the tiny details in the hustle and bustle of life, which influences my photography and, he believes, sets me apart.
A bit about me.. originally from England, my husband Chris and I have lived in Sydney for seven years. It feels very much like home and I’m still in awe of the beauty of this place! Two years ago we rescued a beautiful little Kelpie called India (she is our spirit animal for anyone who’s read The Golden Compass). Indie lives a lovely little life with us on the beach in Bondi jumping in and out of the ocean and chasing both dogs and balls in Marks Parks like her life depends on it!
Why do I love weddings?
Call me a sook but I LOVE witnessing raw emotion! I’m the one standing at the airport arrivals gate beaming at complete strangers as they embrace for the first time in ages (oh yes!). So where better to capture this than at…a wedding? Whether it’s people laughing together, greeting each other for the first time in years, or welling up with happiness, these candid moments are the stuff I live for, the stuff that gives me goose bumps every day! For me wedding photography is all about capturing these real moments, one’s you mave have missed, and encasing them for you to cherish forever.
So if you’re like me and love standing at the airport beaming at strangers than contact me! Together we can capture the story of your special day in an authentic, relaxed and beautiful way. Every couple is unique so every story is different. Let’s go!
