THE GAL BEHIND THE GLASS
Hey there! I’m a photographer based in Nelson, a lovely little town situated at the top of the South Island in New Zealand. I love the mountains, coffee at first light, scuba diving, camping, hiking, thai food and Harry Potter. I also love interior design – in fact I probably spend half my week trawling interior stores, playing with colours and textures and pinning my life away on Pinterest. I have more indoor plants than I can count and take the greatest pride in my small (but growing) art collection. I’m married to the coolest guy on the planet, Ben. He’s a dog-loving, hunter / gatherer and he’s my biggest supporter out there. We were married on my childhood farm, and just at the conclusion of our ceremony, the skies opened and it absolutely poured with rain, NON-STOP. We were soaked to the skin, but it was beyond amazing and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Marriage is the bomb-diggity. I’ve been shooting weddings part-time for the past 3 years now, and just over a year ago I decided to throw caution to the wind and go out on my own; it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I haven’t looked back. Shooting couples in love is what seems to make me tick as an artist, and so, here I am.
I’m all about photographing in a way that not only captures the way you look, but the way you FEEL. I endeavour to capture those feelings and turn them into tangible, beautiful, frozen fragments of time for you to enjoy for many many years to come. For me, it’s about connection. Heartfelt expression. Love.
I want you to receive your images and remember the way it felt to be with your truest love at this amazing time in your life. The way a scent from many moons ago triggers your fondest memory.
It really is the stuff of dreams. Shooting a wedding day is an absolute privilege. And I count my lucky stars every day to have accidentally fallen into this industry.
It warms my heart to the core that you are here reading this, and if you have made it this far, I would love to know a little more about you and your wedding plans.
