Photography to me is so much more than just pointing a camera at something and pressing a button. It is about capturing a priceless moment, filled with life and emotion and saving it for all eternity. I think Ansel Adams said it best when he said: “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” That to me is the art of photography.
I am first woman, and as such, love all things beautiful. I have always loved art, and as much as I wanted to be an artist, that gift was not mine to have. So, from a young age where others got their first stereo, I got a little pink camera. And my love for photography just grew from that, and I was finally able to express the hidden artist inside me.
As my life evolved, and God blessed me with an amazing family, and the honour of being mommy to two beautiful daughters, I made the decision to focus my career solely on wedding photography.
My style is easy-going, almost photo-journalistic. I believe you have dreamed of this day your whole life, and although I will give guidance when necessary, I try to capture the emotion filled moments as they happen.
