I’m a believer in good, honest story-telling — and a wedding is the perfect format for this to happen. It’s the one day that finally arrives which has consumed your energy for so long, yet you still have no real control over. Capturing that wild experience is what I love — natural and unscripted. I work hard to get to know you, enabling me to create that important connection to craft your distinctive story, whilst being one of the most relaxed people you can have along on your adventure.
