I'm a wedding photographer based in the Wairarapa. My photographic experience includes weddings, family portraits, and editorial photography for The Dominion Post in Wellington. I trained in documentary photography and understand about capturing the moment. 

I like to approach a wedding with a mix of documentary style and posed photographs. Each wedding is unique and deserves a unique and fresh approach. Having recently been a bride I understand how important it is to listen to what the bride and groom want from their photos. Before a wedding I like to meet the bride and groom to find out their expectations, and explore location options. It is always a privilege to be a part of their big day.

Available to do photographic work in the greater Wellington and Wairarapa area, I'm reasonably priced and flexible, so please don't hesitate to contact me with any further questions. 


Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.  "
