My work takes me Internationally, working with a wide range of clients from Universal Music to high-level CEO’s, health and wellbeing companies and everyone in between. I only shoot a limited number of weddings/Unions Of Love per year, to allow time to focus on other clients and projects.
My clients value quality over quantity, and after many years of shooting ‘full day packages’ with hundreds of images, I simply believe it is unnecessary for most people. Instead my focus is on the highest quality images taken with the upmost intention. I meticulously sort through every image and only pick the very best that you will love and keep forever. You simply don’t need a thousand images, it’s overwhelming and dilutes the uniqueness of capturing any event with an artistic eye.
Therefore I only offer 2 and 4hr packages for wedding and boudoir. I can work all of my magic in that amount of time and I guarantee it’ll be more quality images than you’ll know what to do with. For portrait and commissioned projects please email me for a quote.
This is my magic!
2hrs is the perfect amount of time to photograph a beautiful collection of images that will be more than enough for most people. Check out the blog posts tagged with 2hr weddings to see what is capable.
4hrs is more than enough time for a small intimate wedding, without having photography become a distraction from your day. I create an abundance of incredible images and capture all the goodness from the main events of the day. I shoot quality over quantity every time, and only focus on the very best images and memories (see what clients think below).
Boudoir shoots are photographed 100% on film, for an experience unlike anything else. A long lost art of photographing intimate natural portraits of women using the simplicity of film cameras, and without the glamour of a traditional studio. For some it’s a playful beautiful experience to embody your true self and have images to love and honour yourself for years. For others it can be quite healing to truly be seen and witnessed exactly how you are. No glamour, no fancy lighting, no studio, and no barbie-doll makeup. The real, beautiful you.
Whether it is a handmade linen album, or fine art printing, everything I offer is of the highest standard in eco materials, craftsmanship and made with love. Only non-animal based materials are sourced and every effort is made to be as environmentally conscious and local as possible.
All prints & albums are either traditional photographic prints or fine art cotton rag.
The purest love of photography for me comes from shooting film. Some clients still highly value the magic of having some of their images photographed on film and others don’t care as much. Therefore it is an optional extra at simply $200 per hour for wedding and Portrait, and quoted per commercial job. Please make a note when enquiring about a booking request.
I have travelled all over Canada, USA, Europe and Australia to photograph, and am always open to new places.
Half the year I reside in a summer cabin in the misty coastal mountains of BC Canada, photographing, biking, hiking, climbing and paddling my way through old rain forests and mountains.
The other half of the year I am about an hours drive from Melbourne Australia, on the south-west coast, close to the beach, family and great food.
Yes absolutely. We all have magic to offer the world and each other, and I’m always open to discussing a value exchange that works for both of us. I have exchanged a range of things from electrical work to timeshare holidays, business coaching and handmade furniture. Send me an email and we can discuss in more detail.
I’ve kept my timelines simple and quick, and will happily prioritise with food-based bribes:
Commercial – 1-2 weeks
Boudoir – 2 weeks
Wedding – 6 weeks
Please note film shoots require an additional 2 weeks.
I can’t stand being sold stuff I don’t need, and wouldn’t wish the same upon anyone else. When you have received the images and had time to sit with them, it is your choice whether you want a DIY your own album or work with me to create something professionally made. No sweat.
I’m definitely big on making a plan, and love to make sure things are organised prior to the day. Prior to the day I help you with allocating photography timing to cover the most important parts of the day. There are options for things like a “first look”, “unplugged wedding”, and shooting the majority of ‘couple’ photos before the ceremony so there is no break and allows for you to hang out with guests afterwards.
Usually most people haven’t ever planned a wedding, so I’m happy to help where I can.
I stick pretty close to my scheduled times, but will always be happy to hang out an extra 15mins or if I’m being fed some kind of delicious food. 🙂
