I’m not going to tell you that photography has been my passion ever since I was little, because that would be a lie. I used to wake up not quite knowing what I wanted to do with my life. I tried so many different jobs and couldn’t find something that felt right. Then I started taking photos. I soon discovered that being able to capture the special moments in peoples lives, in images that they can treasure forever, gave me a great sense of fulfillment and joy.

My passion for photography has since grown even stronger. I have met some incredible people and been to some beautiful places around the world along the way. Now, I can’t imagine a better way to spend my days. I am lucky enough to have found a job that inspires, pushes and moves me every day.

Photography gives my creative mind permission to play and when I have my camera I feel free of all life’s little worries. I become absorbed in the beauty around me. Being behind the camera allows me to completely focus on those special moments in life, to block everything else out, other than that very moment.

To me, weddings are without a doubt one of the most beautiful moments in life. I put my heart and soul into wedding photography because I know that the celebration of love through the act of marriage is one of the most wonderful things that one can ever experience. as such, being chosen to be a part of someone’s wedding is such a honour.

I love surfing and anything to do with the ocean. I love spending time cooking and being creative in the kitchen. I love good food and good coffee. I love listening to records and find music a great source of inspiration. I love traveling, being outdoors and exploring new places. I am in love with my little family – my wonderful wife Ash, my little girl Lula-May and Milko the pooch. And I love taking photos.
