intimate, relaxed, heart-felt + beautiful
if these are some of the words that spring to mind for what you are dreaming up for your wedding DAY then WE ARE ON THE SAME PAGE!
Intimate Wedding + Elopement Photographer
Capturing your love story on your special day encompasses absolutely everything I love:
Celebrating love and life with your nearest and dearests, laughter, happy tears, dancing, architecture and landscapes, intricate details, and intimate heartfelt moments.
My goal as your wedding photographer is to document and preserve all your memories from the day, including the moments you will be too busy to notice, so that you can look at them afterwards and adore them forever.
If you would like to find out more about me, you can read my story here.
My Photography Style has been described by my clients as natural, relaxed, candid, documentary-style and detail-oriented. I will capture your wedding with a creative eye, whilst keeping the images elegant and beautiful.
What I believe draws people to my photography most of all are the intricacy and emotions I capture through my imagery and the warmth they feel as they look through them.
When you get through an entire wedding album you will be filled with the same joy you felt on your day, perhaps with a tear in your eye, and a little warm nostalgia as the series of images will give you a complete and detailed account of your unique love story.
A Boutique Experience
I pride myself in providing a bespoke and boutique experience to my couples. For this reason, I only take on a limited number of smaller, more intimate weddings (up to approx. 80 guests) and elopements a year.
I want to get to know both you and your partner - find out how you both met, what makes your relationship special, what your common values are, and what you would like from your wedding photography.
On your wedding day, I will be quietly in the background for you to feel supported and at ease that I am capturing everything you wanted.
I will provide you with a seamless experience from the moment you get in touch with me until you have your wedding album in your hands.
Your wedding photography is the one thing that will withstand the test of time and carry with you for the rest of your journey.
I truly believe in the importance of creating something timeless to preserve your beautiful memories from your special day in a tangible form so that you can look over them in many years to come.
I will work with you to design a fully customised, exquisite album that you and your love story deserves. For more information please take a look at my album page.

NOT SURE HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE YOU NEED?
...Or unsure of what package is right for you? No worries!
I would be happy to guide you through what would be the best options for you.
Let's start with a phone conversation after you have filled out the below form.
Looking forward to capturing some epic images on your wedding day!
It would be an absolute honour should you wish to share your wedding day with me and have me document your special day!
Please fill out the form to get in touch, ask me any questions and to start the conversation. I will be in touch with you as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours on a week day). I can't wait to hear your story and what you are dreaming up for your day!
What is your covid policy?
If you choose to reschedule because of COVID-19 you will not incur any rescheduling fees, price increases or loss of payments you have already made should we be able to mutually agree on a new date. All rescheduled wedding dates must be booked again within 12 months and dates are subject to my availability.
If cancellation is unavoidable, you will be issued with a refund (minus the non-refundable retainer fee).
I can provide further detailed information on my Covid-19 Policy and this will be updated periodically according to any updated from NSW Government Regulations. All wedding photography services will adhere to Covid Restrictions and Business Requirements strictly enforced.
How do we book you and what's the process?
Following receipt of the above contact form I will get in touch with you within 24 hours (during weekdays), to discuss with you further on which package would be suitable for your wedding day. I am also happy to be flexible and customise my packages according to your specific needs.
After you have chosen your package and we have confirmed this together, I request a $800 non-refundable retainer fee to secure your date, as well as a signed contract.
We will be organising an in-person meeting soon (or zoom meeting if in person is not possible) to make sure we are well prepared for the big day!
How many photos will I receive?
This depends on the hours of coverage and package you choose but for a full day coverage but you can expect roughly 50 final edited images to each hour (so for an 8 hour day you’d expect to see approximately 400 images).
My motto is always to give you quality over quantity. From experience, I can confidently say people appreciate a print-worthy set of 400 photos over a mediocre set of 800 images.
Every single image you receive will be carefully edited and enhanced to my photography style as seen on this website.
DO YOU ONLY PHOTOGRAPH SMALL WEDDINGS?
I specialise in small weddings (namely up to approx. 80 guests) as I believe the smaller more intimate weddings and elopements fit my portrait-focused, intricate, and detail orientated photography style that is all about the intimacy and emotions of the bride and groom as well as the people present.
However, if you are someone who loves my style and are thinking "I absolutely want her to be my wedding photographer!" then of course I am so honoured and would love to have a chat with you!
Do we need a second photographer?
I photograph most of my weddings as the sole photographer as I specialise in smaller weddings. However it does also depend on the time and brief requirements you have for your day so the best thing to do is for us to have a chat, for me to understand your needs, and we take it from there.
When do we get the photos?
All the edited images will become available for download via your personal online gallery approximately 4-6 weeks after your wedding date. The albums and products will be delivered to you a few weeks after you receive your personal online gallery.
Can we get the RAW (unedited and straight off the camera) photos?
The editing process is an essential part of my style and art. A RAW (unprocessed) photo is flatter, less saturated, and duller than edited images (not to mention they are enormously large files and need a special photography software to just open the file). The RAW file contains all the raw data so that I can make edits to them to create the look you see on my website and in the photos you receive. RAW files are essentially an incomplete piece of work, which is why I cannot send them to you.
Do you have back up gear?
You can call me the queen of back ups! I have back-ups of the back ups from my camera bodies, to lenses, to batteries, to memory cards. I also shoot with two memory cards so that your images are getting backed up as I take them.
Do you photograph LGBTQ+ Weddings?
YES!!! My wedding photography is all about documenting and celebrating love. It would be an absolute honour to capture your love story!
