THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
My pictures, my art is simply an extension of who I am.
I adore shooting weddings because I just don’t shoot weddings in a regimented way, but create images that reflects the mood. I tell the natural story of your special day. The beauty of a wedding is that the occasion creates itself. I love the way it just happens and that nothing is prescriptive. The people, the romance, the moments and my role is to narrate the story of your Wedding day through my lens.
