Why do you shoot weddings? 

I am photographing weddings because I believe that every wedding is a work of art.

What type of couples do you enjoy working with? 

I absolutely love working with adventurous couples with a great sense of style.

Norway would be on the top of my list of places that I would love to photograph a wedding in. It’s probably the country with the most amazing culture, people and landscape.

I love photographing weddings because I have the opportunity to witness beautiful, emotional stories unfold each and every time. Being able to capture and preserve those moments for my couples constantly inspires my creativity.

What type of couples do you enjoy working with? 

The couples I find I connect with the most are the ones who embrace me as a friend and ignore me as a photographer, and genuine moments unfold.

Where do you dream of shooting? and why? 

I absolutely love travelling with every fibre of my being, and am incredibly lucky that my job allows me to do so. New Zealand and Greece are both high on my list of places I would love to shoot –  both have incredible landscapes and light.

What type of couples do you enjoy working with? 

I love working with all couples. The fun part of my job is meeting all different kinds of people that show their love for each other in their own way.

Where do you dream of shooting? and why? 

I do travel for weddings! I would love to shoot a wedding in Greece. My husband is Greek, so I would love to see where his (and our kids) ancestors are from. And I’ve heard it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world!

Photography package price range: $4,200+

I shoot weddings because I get to spend time with people on one of their happiest days.  I love that every couple is different and it’s a whole new love story…..and who doesn’t love, love!

What type of couples do you enjoy working with? 

I love working with clients who value the reason why they are getting married over the details and production of the day. 

Where do you dream of shooting? and why? 

I’ve traveled to many place for weddings; Cuba, Dominican, Maui, Jamaica, Mexico, USA.  My dream location would be in Europe because of it’s beautiful historical/architectural backdrop. 

Photography package price range: $3,800 – $4,800

Why do you shoot weddings? 

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.

Photography package price range: $3,050 – $4,750
