I’m exceptionally lucky (and wholeheartedly grateful). As a photographer, I get to travel the world, experience amazing destinations, make connections with wonderful people and have a front-row seat to witness adventure, love, family and emotion in their most powerful forms. These are just some of the moments that hold a special place in my heart.

I’m always the one behind the camera. But, thanks to my (super but very sneaky) second shooters, I often find myself staring back at my face on a computer screen when I download and review photos from a wedding. Here’s a collection of me and my team (including crowd faves Daisy and Poppy!) doing our thing.

Is there something else you’re bursting to know more about?

I’m all ears! Tell me what’s on your mind and I’ll include it in a future behind the scenes post.
