Perth wedding photographer



Take a minute to enjoy the slideshow of visual goodness above, this is best done with a vino in hand and Leon Bridges serenading you in the background, then scroll down for more info.

I’m a visual storyteller that loves documenting people and places. I try capture a connection between two different souls who are drawn together by this thing called love. I capture them during their engagement, at their home or secret hideouts, then follow them around on one of the most special days of their lives at epic locations around the globe. To be truly honest I don’t love weddings, I do love marriage though and are lucky enough to have recently married my best friend in two celebrations in both Perth and South Africa, so I know a bit about what it’s like to plan a wedding, the high’s and the lows!
Being a documentary style photographer with a fashion background I try capture the story as it unfolds, with only subtle guidance and lots of the fun candid stuff that you may or may not remember after the day.
Emotion and connection are my jam.  I make images that reflect who you are together.
I’m a no-frills kind of girl and I think that shows in my work. I’m not fancy, I can’t spell, I use exclamation marks too much when I get excited and I may trip over my own feet. I love raw imagery so don’t airbrush you or edit in Photoshop.
I love the colour teal, moody light, confetti cannons, smashing party pinatas, giant sparklers and personal unique details. I’m a sucker for personalised vows, usually hiding behind the camera trying to hold it together during the ceremony and can’t help photograph kids and old people at weddings.
One of my mottos that you may hear me say over and over throughout a shoot.
Planning a wedding myself has opened up my eyes to a whole new dimension to the wedding planning process!
I would love to help you in any way possible and so have begun creating a blog (still a work in progress!) filled with a stack of info on where to begin, my favourite vendors, and starting in June the process I took along the way including the hurdles i had!
My ideal client? People who are drunk in love and connect with my work and ideology of weddings.
My favourite couples are fun, creative individuals planning on including personal touches to make their wedding day about them, not because they think they have to do something, or because it’s the norm. Something different and rad as heck. I love couples who aren’t afraid to get dirty, cause with my love for adventure, let’s face it you probably will.
I don’t mind at all if you tell me you are camera shy and don’t want to spend the day posing for photos, I actually love it! I find beauty in awkward, raw moments. I just need you to be able to feel free around me, to be yourselves and connect with one another.
As much as I love boho chic/ celestial/ nomadic styling (or whatever the trend is when you’re reading this) out on farms, forests and mountain tops with tipis and llamas and harp on about loving unique styling, It’s not all that.  You can have rad as heck styling or no styling at all, as long as you’re rad as heck in love (and not afraid to show it) that’s all that matters.
My client’s value photographs as the most important products and services from the wedding.  Photos to them are lifelong memories and precious heirlooms to share with future generations. They see photographs as apart of their legacy and realise they are the only thing left with after the day has past to tell their story. They look at the image of their dad handing her over at the ceremony and remember that first time they have ever seen him shed a tear, they can smell the fresh air from their intimate mountain elopement, they can feel the squeeze of their now late Grandad during the congratulations. They are real and genuine people.

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.” 

I love the fact that I can capture a love bond between two people on a 2D surface and every time you look at that image you are transported back in time to that very moment. How you felt, how in love you were at that moment, that feeling and connection. I love that people who weren’t even at your wedding can feel the connection and emotion. While I am into all those candid shots that make you laugh and cry, being a traveler at heart I am also a sucker for a good location. Whilst in Perth I try stay away from the traditional popular venues and love finding new ones.
I would love to hear it!
So go and think about it.
Why are you together?
What do you love about each other?
What makes you two ‘you’?
Every time you go to book something or plan the day ask yourself, why?
Why are you doing it, what does it mean to you? Is it special to you as a couple? Does it reflect your personality?
Is it making that day rad AF or do you just think you have to do it because it’s what everyone else does?
If you connect with my images, I would love to meet up and connect as people, because If you’ve got this far then I’m sure we will!
Investment starts at $3600+gst and my collections let you ‘choose your own adventure’, you are able to personalise and create a collection to get exactly what you want and nothing you don’t.
I am so blessed to be in a group of the best wedding photographers in Perth so If I’m not available or overseas on your wedding day I can always recommend someone who is.
