Most people would call me a documentary photographer, but I prefer the term “storyteller.” My images highlight real moments, protecting them forever against the passing of time.
Often, these are some of the biggest moments in my clients’ lives: the day you pop the question, marry your best friend, or welcome home your first child. That trust – the trust to witness and capture these memories – is the greatest honour.
As you explore my images, I hope you feel something stir inside you. If you do, you’ve got it, too:
An empathetic heart and a love for human connection.
As a documentary photographer, my goal is to blend in. During our shoot, you’ll get to enjoy the presence of your loved ones without worrying about the camera, and I’ll get to capture you as you truly are.
MY TALENT LIES IN SEEING THE EMOTION IN THE MOMENTS YOU ARE GENUINELY PARTAKING IN AND PRESERVING THEM IN THE BEST LIGHT.
My top priority is the emotion in the image, but I don’t stop there. Through years of practice, I’ve developed an artistic eye for dissecting a scene, spotting unique patterns, and finding the best light. I use natural light to showcase your radiance.
Aside from a few family photos, I won’t pose you during our time together, and I won’t ask you to look directly at the camera.
When you hire me as your documentary photographer, you ask me to retell a piece of your love story, not rewrite it. I won’t force you into poses or expressions. I’ll just capture what’s already there.
As a bride who poured her heart and soul into her wedding nine years ago, I wholeheartedly understand the effort that goes into crafting your perfect day. All those details are part of your story, and they’ll be part of your photo collection as well. You can expect to receive photos that capture your venue, your decor, the surrounding landscape, and the feel of the day.
Since my photography style embodies a documentary approach, your photo collection will reflect the authentic vibe of our time together.
If that time includes tons of laughter, jokes, and joyful movement, your photos will reflect that energy. If that time is quiet, calming, and intimate, your photos will reflect that, too.
Either way, your personality will shine through. The more comfortable you are with letting the story unfold, the better.
Following your session or wedding day, I will go to work curating a collection of images and editing them to my standards and style. The final collection will include a mix of black and white and colour photographs.
Every photo client receives their full collection on a password-protected online gallery.
I can also create tangible items like prints, canvas wraps, albums, and announcement cards. These can be customized and purchased through my print store attached to your online gallery.
