Why I Love Photography
As a child, I remember finding a poppy growing in the drain and rushing home to my mum to explain that I wanted to photograph it with an old 125mm film camera my gran gave me. "Why do you want to photograph a poppy in a drain? There are loads of flowers in the garden", exclaimed my mum. But, in that moment, I saw that beauty could bloom in any place, you just need to see it. Even when I was so young, I understood the capability of a photograph to communicate beyond words. I waited for twooooo whole weeks for the film to come back! I was totally hooked.
How Travelling Inspires my Wedding Photography
Perhaps one of my most treasured possessions is the massive map on my office wall where I document all the places I have visited as an editorial and travel photographer. Maps play an influential role in how we see the world because distortions can appear, and if we don’t question the information we are given we can’t see the world any other way. This ability to observe and investigate is a documentary photographer’s gift, and one that gives you the most personal and unique photographs of your wedding day.
I love travelling and debunking my own misconceptions about the places I visit. While exploring new countries you see the harmony in humanity and discover that the world is a beautiful place with amazing people. Weddings are like new destinations, and I take my responsibility as a photographer very seriously to uphold my values of sensitivity in representing your day with all the love and care that you are taking on your journey through life. You deserve personal, quality images that tell your story beautifully.
