Your story. Your images.
Your visual legacy.
let's get started.
You guys! I’m ridiculously excited for you! You’re getting married!
Marriage is awesome. I’ve been married for sixteen years to my wonderful husband Phil. We married young (19...just a baby!) popped out a couple of kids (two amazing daughters aged 10 & 12) and we’re happily living in Ashburton. But enough about me.
Before your awesome marriage, comes a crazy big party - your wedding day! Or, maybe you aren't into big parties, and just want something small and intimate. Either way, I'm in!
Weddings are my jam. Like, I really love them. In summer, I live and breathe weddings. I want yours to be be exactly what you want it to be. I also want you to be able to remember every detail for years to come.
That’s where photography comes in. Your wedding photos will be there to remind you just how special your day was. And how good you looked. They will capture fleeting moments, happy tears, and laughter.
They will be a part of your story.
WHY I SHOULD BE
Your wedding Photographer
There are hundreds of wedding photographers around, all with different packages, skill levels and equipment.
So why choose me?
One of the things I pride myself on, is making the whole photo process FUN! I’ve lost count of the amount of couples and bridal parties who have told me that not only was our session together easy, but it was also enjoyable! It is so important to me that you enjoy every minute possible of your day, and that includes the photo session. A lot of kiwis don’t enjoy being in front of the camera. I get it – I’m one of them. I can make the whole process easy with simple body language tips, and heaps of positive energy. Music helps too, so let’s crank up your favourite sounds and just have fun!
I’ve been photographing weddings for a long time. I’ve shot close to 200 and even after all of this time, I can honestly say that I still love it. Each wedding is different, and I’m all about photographing love as it is, whether you are part of the LGBT community, on your second marriage or super young and nervous. I’m dedicated to each and every couple that asks me to be there on their wedding day, as every love story is worth sharing. That being said, this is a big decision so let’s get to know each other. Let’s have coffee. Or wine. My treat.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How early should I book? I’m often take bookings for 12 - 18 months ahead,though occasionally I have an earlier booking available.
What do I need to do to secure my booking?
A $1000 retainer (non refundable - unless I can re-book your date) and you'll need to sign the contract.
Where are you based? I’m based in Ashburton but regularly travel throughout Canterbury for shoots. I am also available for weddings throughout New Zealand and international destination weddings.
Do your prices include travel? There is no charge for weddings less than 80km from Ashburton. Further than that can be arranged at a small cost. For international weddings I quote for flights, any extra transportation and 2 - 3 nights accommodation.
When you say 8 hours coverage, what do you mean? Time is measured from when I first show up at the first location, in consecutive hours.
Do you provide props? Nope! It's not really my style.
How long before I get my photos? A sample will be on my blog or social media within 1 week, and you will get your digital copies around 2 - 3 weeks after the event (payment must be cleared.) Once the album proof has been confirmed it will be sent away to be made and it will arrived within 4 weeks (expect lover over the Christmas period)
Can I pay off my package over time? Yes. Lump sum payments aren’t always easy, so installments are welcome.
How long will we be away for photos? I'll work to your schedule. As a ball park figure though, I like to allow around 45 minutes to an hour for the bridal party photos.
