I love stories. They have the power to transform lives and preserve beautiful moments that are not to be forgotten. Every person has a unique story; but when two individuals in love decide to get married, a very special story unfolds. A story of promise, unity, trust, passion, hope, joy, tears, laughter, and commitment. Being a wedding photographer allows me to witness such amazing stories and gives me the honour of documenting them.
It is always a privilege to be trusted by a couple to capture the essence of one of the most important day of their lives and re-tell it through my perspective. Wedding photographs become memories that are embedded in the couple’s history, they are shared with family and friends alike. In a sense, I get to become part of their family’s history.
I also experience moments, precious moments that one cannot put money on, nor can anyone take away from me. Moments like when a couple whose wedding I photographed emailed me a picture of them and their new-born daughter 11 months later. Moments like that are what I breathe for.
I have met some amazing people, experienced interesting cultures, travelled to remarkable places and have documented beautiful stories. My hope is that, I get to experience much of the same on my journey as a wedding storyteller.
I am a Creative, Contemporary, Wedding Story-teller.
1. The opportunity to build relationship with strangers - the chance to become friends with my clients. 2. The privilege of documenting the story of two people in love through my perspective and becoming part of their family's history as a result. 3. CAKE - yep!
