Behind The Brand
How would you describe your photography style?
Emotive, honest and romantic.
What is it that makes an image magical?
When you capture the true emotion or reaction of a human being.
What advice would you give to the camera-shy couple?
To me, being shy in front of the camera is not a bad thing. It’s easier to capture someone’s raw emotion or get them to let their guard down than someone who is super confident. Concentrate on each other and let the photographer work their magic.
Do you travel interstate or internationally?
I travel everywhere. I am based in NZ, but often to The States, Europe, Australia and other exotic places for weddings.
As an estimate, how long does your editing process take?
I like to hand over a preview gallery a few days after the wedding and the full gallery takes 10 weeks.
Describe a magical moment from a wedding you’ve photographed…
Capturing a couple’s reception along the Amalfi Coast. The sun was setting and watching their intimate rooftop gathering of family and friends whilst listening to a guest sing opera was somewhat of a dream.
Why we love it…
One of our favorites who we’ve worked with for years, Bek is an inimitable talent with an incredible eye for style and detail. Her frames are powerful and palpable with emotion, yet coincidingly, they’re soft and delicate. The balance is what draws us in, each and every time.
For the couple…
For the modern couple drawn to stylish, beautifully composed frames that spill with light and emotion.
Consider contrast and balance in all aspects of styling, from your bridal gown and veil to your reception theme and decor. Bek has a flair for producing incredible black and white photographs where this can be complemented. Whether it’s a minimal veil styled delicately against an intricately beaded gown, or subtle tableware pieces juxtaposed against textural linens or florals.
