CLASSIC ALL WHITE BOUQUET

While we’ll always love colourful blooms, carrying an all-white bouquet is an instant classic. Whether you favour crisp white or a more creamy ivory, there are tons of floral options to pick from when creating your single-hued bouquet. Design: Wild Orchid Floral | Photo: Katch Studios

WHITE COUTURE BOUQUET

We like to call this the couture take on the white bouquet. Luxurious gardenias with a pop of colour and a gold handle. You can substitute the yellow + gold with your main wedding colour and it would look just as fabulous! Design: faBLOOMosity | Photo: Katch Studios

I capture weddings because to me, a wedding day is this amazing combination of raw, emotional moments + beautiful aesthetics. I love engagement sessions, where I delight in getting to know my couples.

What type of couples do you enjoy working with? 

I believe I am the perfect fit for couples who love a classic, natural and romantic style. Who aren’t afraid to be their true selves in front of my lens. Who love each other deeply, and aren’t afraid to show it.

Where do you dream of shooting? and why? 

I love traveling! My favourite trips are the ones where I can execute creative sessions while exploring beautiful new settings. I would love to capture a wedding on a Greek Island, but there are also many charming mansions/manors and parks in the U.S. on my must-shoot list.
