ABOUT ME

I take photos for a living … and just for fun too :)

I love a good chat over coffee, travelling the countryside, and dogs are the best. One day I plan to travel the country living in a Sprinter van whilst taking pictures of my travels.

EVERY PHOTOGRAPHER SEES THINGS DIFFERENTLY, AND HOW I PHOTOGRAPH MY COUPLES AND WEDDINGS, IS MY VERSION OF THAT STORY.

Welcome

I am a photographer from Sydney and where my love of taking pictures began in around 2000.

At the time I was working in the commercial interiors industry in a sales & marketing capacity. While I was debating whether to study my other love, interior design, I purchased my first DSLR camera.  The plan was to create photo-based art to sell to interior designers as I discovered digital printing and ability to print on canvas - which is laughable now as it's a common household product, but back in the year 2000 it was a new printing technique only known to limited industry insiders.

In the process of learning how to use a camera, I fell in love with taking pictures and eventually photographing people. Finally leading me to taking that next step and become a professional photographer in 2009 after relocating to Brisbane in the name of love. Through photography I have made friends I otherwise never would have and found a wonderful community of photographers and creatives.

I have spent the last eight years photographing weddings mostly in and around Brisbane, South East Queensland and Northern NSW, along with the odd destination wedding. After 11 years in Brisbane, I have returned home to Sydney. Now as a Sydney based photographer, I look forward to photographing more couples on their big day around this beautiful country.

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
- Ansel Adams
MORE ABOUT ME

I am a self-taught photographer who has spent many hours playing with her cameras, watching online photography workshops, and attending seminars both here in Australia and overseas. And while I don’t seek affirmation from my peers through entering photography competitions to become an award winning photographer, I put all my energy into creating beautiful images for my couples. I would rather let my couples be my judges.

The fact that I have been a full-time photographer and sustaining a photography business since 2009, and that couples continue to hire me each year, plus all the lovely reviews I have received over the years, are the best judges of my photography.

Life has taught me that when you are passionate about something, your drive and motivation can open you to learning more than you could ever imagine. My journey as a photographer has been life changing. My life revolves around photography and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

For many years I have worked in creative industries, but none has brought me as much happiness as documenting people’s stories. I do believe things happen for a reason, and my past has enabled me to be the photographer that I am today.

I would love to tell your story.
