How would you describe your photography style?

I have a relaxed approach that’s a combination of reportage and editorial styles. I capture both naturally posed and candid photos depending on what works given the situation. Whatever approach appeals more to you, we’ll work together to arrive at a combination that works well and makes you feel comfortable so you can look your absolute best.

Head to MY CLIENT REVIEWS to know what it’s like working with me.

Do you work with a second shooter?

This depends on the size and requirements of your wedding. For a small wedding, expect me to shoot on my own. For bigger weddings, I include a second shooter as part of your coverage.

Can we meet you first?

In-person meetings are available for my booked clients. If you’re at the enquiry stage, we can arrange a phone call or a video call and get to know each other virtually. SEND ME A MESSAGE and let’s start getting to know each other!

How do we reserve our wedding date?

Once you sign our contract and pay the non-refundable retainer, the date is yours!

What’s a retainer and what’s it for?

The retainer is the amount you need to pay to protect your wedding date from any incoming enquiries and bookings I may receive for that particular date.

How much do you charge? Can we pay in installments?

The non-refundable retainer is due immediately but the remaining balance can be paid in installments. Please refer to my PRICING PAGE for more info.

Do you offer discounts?

I’m afraid not. I work hard to achieve the same high level of standard for each wedding I accept & I also don’t cut corners. Therefore, I don’t offer discounts. However,  CONTACT ME with details of your wedding so I can tailor a package for you.

How much of the wedding will you cover?

I’ll cover everything from the bridal preparations in the morning up to an hour of the evening party after the first dance.
