WHO'S BEHIND THE LENS? 

I'm a twenty five year old Christchurch gal, and I'm mildly obsessed with crime shows, chilly philly, afternoon naps and photographing couples in love. I have a love of my own. I would travel forever if I could, and I love making people laugh.
 
I shoot documentary style -  whether it's a together session or wedding, i'm going to capture you for you and everything as it unfolds naturally. The real moments - that's what I find most beautiful. 
 

I'M NOT A VERY PHOTOGENIC PERSON

You are not as awkward as you think, I promise! If you aren't into posing, that's cool because neither am I. I want my clients to feel as comfortable as possible, so i do provide some suggestions, direction and mildly hilarious banter to help. 
 

DO YOU TRAVEL?

You bloody bet I do! I'm a bit of a free spirit and I get restless if i stay in one place for too long. I have been to nine countries and can't wait to explore the rest of the world; I would love to photograph your destination wedding. I would need help with flights and possibly accomodation - of course discounted packages are available. 
 

HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE GET, & WHEN DO WE GET THEM?

If it's your big day, this depends on your collection - I can't give an exact amount as I find this a bit unauthentic to you as each couple is different and unique! This can be anywhere between 550 to 1,500 images. For engagement and family sessions, a minimum of 30 images.
 
With weddings, everything should be ready from three to six weeks. Together and family sessions are usually ready within two weeks. 
 

CAN WE HAVE THE RAW FILES?

No way jose, sorry. The way I see it (and alot of other photographers) is that the raw images are essentially unfinished. Post production is an important part of our work and we want to provide you with the best high quality and perfected photographs. 
 

SO HOW AND WHEN DO WE BOOK YOU?

Once we catch up for a drink or a coffee and you're happy with everything,  I will send you through a contract! Once this is signed a 25% non-refundable booking fee to secure your date will be paid within seven days. From there I'll check in and keep in regular contact - i'm more happy to help with any planning if needed!
 
I would recommend booking your venue and photographer as one of the first things you do! As much notice as possible the better.
