Behind the Brand

What draws you to wedding photography?

Finding those fleeting moments that say everything. It’s like panning for gold.

How would you describe your photography style?

I like marrying multiple photographic disciplines on the day. Landscape photography, photojournalism, editorial and lofi party vibes.

What inspires you creatively?

Art Nouveau cinema and renaissance paintings.

What is it that makes an image magical?

If an image can pull me into the moment to the extent that I have an emotive reaction. Anything fresh that doesn’t follow the typical wedding photography playbook.

What advice would you give couples when selecting their wedding photographer?

I always schedule a meeting first – if the energy flows well this will translate into great imagery. Being comfortable around your photographer trumps everything else.

Your dream location to shoot a wedding?

Something different would be great! Cuba, Patagonia, Africa – just somewhere I don’t see on the socials that’s fresh.
