South East Asia is where I call home, having lived in Thailand & Vietnam for 15 years years. Currently based in Bangkok, destination weddings take me all over Southeast Asia. With a love for photography & traveling, meeting people & celebrations, destination weddings was a natural choice. My style of wedding photography is best described as creative reportage with contemporary portraiture. I like to remain inconspicuous as I wait in anticipation for the events to unfold; ensuring that the images captured remain realistic and natural looking. I have a degree in Photography and have covered live music concerts, major sporting events, luxury hotels and documented for charities and NGO's. During my time as a wedding photographer, I have been very fortunate to photograph weddings for a TV presenter, a Miss Universe model, a Prime Minister's Daughter and perhaps the biggest compliment of all, another wedding photographers wedding!
