“do more of what
makes you
happy

I often get asked, “you must have seen so many wonderful weddings, which one is your favourite?”  Yes I am very privileged to have seen some of the most beautiful and glamorous weddings, however I always note that it is the people that make the event so special.

This wedding which got featured in Asiana Wedding magazine, took place in Kenya, I have such fond memories of not only the country but the really amazing people that formed this wedding. The wedding  entourage (this includes photographer!) were encouraged to dress in animal onesies for the trip to go on safari in Masai Mara. For their pre wedding shoot a year earlier I had proposed the idea of a themed shoot at a movie theatre; I was delighted to see the couple had incorporated this theme on their final day reception (the wedding was a week worth of cultural celebrations) at the beach in Mombassa, including gold pop corn buckets and vintage style movie theatre place cards

fashion + typography

I really enjoy fashion photography and the aesthetic look when type and image are placed together. This is a shoot I did with singer, Bambi, the final images I felt were so sticking that I included bold type in the final prints.
