THE CONNECTION

 
sunshine-coast-australia-queensland-engagement0187_BLOG.jpg

We will get to know each other well, because I've learned that taking real photos of people in love requires an intimacy that can only be forged by spending quality time together. I never want to be a stranger that shows up on your wedding day, pretends they know you, and asks you to tenderly kiss on camera. My top priority is your comfort. You aren't all lovey-dovey in front of a camera all the time, and I'm not going to force you to be, but I know that showing up as a trusted friend will help you open up and feel way more confident.

Finding the right photographer for you is just as important as finding the right couple for me. Therefore, it's extremely important that we connect on an artistic level as well as a personal level. Beautiful and authentic imagery is one of the top priorities of the couples I work with, and their adventurous spirit embraces the spontaneousness of the day. They are excited to get married for the marriage, not to re-create a wedding they saw on Pinterest. 

I love creating a bespoke experience for you because I get inspired by your energy, your romance, your vision, and who you are as human beings. Whether you're getting married on a cliffside, a backyard, or a manor house - I am there to capture your story in the most epic and honest way where you see your truest selves in the photos.

ADVENTURE SESSIONS

COME ON, DITCH THE BORING AND AWKWARD ENGAGEMENT SESSION.

WHY are you in a field awkwardly kissing, and you've never been in front of a camera before...
HOW are you ever going to feel comfy in front of a camera after just an hour in some boring location?
EXACTLY. LET'S DO SOMETHING AWESOME INSTEAD.

 

 

I call what I do an "Adventure Session." I meet you anywhere in the WORLD (yes, really, I do) and we take the day to grab drinks, hang out, drive around, take photos, get a snack, take more photos, catch the sunset, eat dinner, and really get to know each other.

Wanna see an example of a typical Adventure Session?

Give yourselves permission to take that trip, or use this as an excuse to do that "elopement style" wedding you wanted to do but your parents would give you hell if you didn't do a proper wedding, or we can hang out in a place that's super meaningful to you and you want to share it with your fiancé! Hey, maybe you're already married and DIDN'T end up with photos you loved or you want to celebrate an anniversary abroad! Look, you found your ONE person you want to spend the rest of your life with and that needs to be celebrated to the fullest!

Here's why I do this:

A: let's be honest... you walk away with some seriously awesome, REAL photos and memories of you guys that document your engagement vacation in a place that's actually somewhere you want to be.

B: you get a solid amount of time in front of the camera and get to know me as your wedding photographer so you're not all deer-in-the-headlights on the day you get married and actually can focus on enjoying your day and being comfy in front of the camera. 

There's a crazy difference in how the wedding day feels when my couples opt for an adventure session and when they don't. I've PROVEN that when I do adventure sessions with my couples I feel like a trusted friend to you AND your family rather than a lady who shoves a camera in your face all day. (AKA: The wedding day is just WAY better).

oh and Rehearsal Dinner Coverage
&
Brunch too... if you're extra like that.

I specialize in affairs for those with creative hearts and a bit more non-traditional views on how a wedding should be. I fully welcome your adventurous spirit, breathtaking environments, small guest lists, and rad, out-of-the-box receptions. I believe your wedding should be an expression of your love and individuality as a couple. So if you're lookin to do the usual church wedding and ballroom reception, we probably aren't gonna click. The more creative, boho, industrial, old world, flower-filled, outdoorsy, and unique, the better. I can't wait to hear all about your ideas!

Thinking about videography but don't need anything crazy?
You got it. We do 5 Minute Wedding Music Videos, too, if you wanna add that.*
(because you KNOW nobody -- including you -- is ever gonna sit through a 20 min saga of your day).
*we don't do video if ya book another photographer
