My wedding photography is all about capturing natural and beautiful images that when viewed tell the story of your special day. I want my images to be relaxed and natural and show your personalities. I try to connect on a personal level with all my clients as this helps you relax in front of the camera and leads to natural more relaxed images. I love looking at fun images of couples enjoying themselves. By developing a relationship with you I hope to inject some fun into the photography and capture images that show laughter and joy as you interact naturally with each other. Wedding images need to delight the senses and mind and give pleasure to the viewer. The use of natural light, the anticipation of the ceremony, that loving glance, the embrace, the kiss and those first moments relaxing together are all beautiful moments that I love to record.
