Location

  I reside in picturesque Victoria, British Columbia spending the majority of my time photographing weddings on the West Coast of BC, Canada. In the winter months I combine my passions for travelling and photography and head south to the warmer climates to photograph destination weddings, with a specialization in Cuba.


My Story

I initially fell in love with photography when I started traveling over 12 years ago. I wanted to be able to capture the feelings and the beauty of different countries as I adventured through them. For me traveling taught me the art of being unobtrusive. I became adept at not only being in the right place at the right time but also having the eye to catch incredible moments as they unfolded.


Upon returning to Canada I attended several weddings where I witnessed several pushy “smile at  me” wedding photographers. This style I realized was not for me, and I knew there was a better, more natural way to capture the intimate details from a wedding.


After gaining experience shooting a number of weddings in the summers of 2002/3, I instantly fell into the role of a photojournalist. By capturing moments as they happened, recording them as a historian would, I was preserving these moments for years to come. The visual story I was recording allowed my clients to enjoy their wedding day over and over every time they looked at their album.


In the following years I worked with and was mentored by professional photographer Erin Ruff. She helped me refine my style, eventually pushing me out of my nest and convincing me to start my own business. Since then I have been in love with the challenges and intensity that wedding photography provides me.


My Style

  In your search for a wedding photographer I believe that it is important to not only match photography style to your tastes but to find a personality that you can relax and have fun with. Finding a photographer that you really like being around is key to creating beautiful, spontaneous images that capture the raw emotion of the day. For me, the importance of having a relaxed and fun day is essential to the creation of these beautiful images that will last a life-time.


I immerse myself in every project with great passion and intense dedication. I focus my attention and energy on finding ways to create original and fun images of people in unique way that allows me to step out of the formalities of traditional formal wedding photography.


Photography Options:

  Cuba is an amazing country full of beautiful people, postcard perfect landscapes, and surreal 16th century architecture. The possibilities for creating unique wedding images abound. I have a multitude of ideas for funky and creative wedding photos, that I would love to share with couples that are excited by the idea of getting married somewhere different. The couples I am looking for would be willing to put in the extra effort and time creating these special images and memories that will last a lifetime.
