This one hour pre-wedding package includes one location, one wardrobe change, and is for those who know that the before is just as important as the during and after! You want to capture your relationship in an authentic yet beautiful way before your special day. You're not looking for that mechanical, one size fits all experience, one that pushes you through a series of fake backdrops, forced poses and heavy photoshop filters. You want something real, photos that tell your story. It's not easy right? Finding a photographer capable of capturing the essence of your relationship in an artistic way. Well, now you've found one, and my speciality is putting people at ease in front of my camera. My strategy is simple. I listen to you. I learn about you. I engage with you. Even if you've never had professional photos done, I work with so many couples who are in the same boat. Part of my job as a photographer is to make you feel comfortable and over the years, I have learned how to bring anyone's true personality out for the camera to see.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Once we meet up for our photo session, we take a good 10-15 minutes to sit down where I will explain how I work and the general outline for our session. This short discussion allows us to get to know each other, confirm our visions still align, and see the big picture so that we may have a more fluid and relaxing day. During our photo session, I don't demand that you spend the whole time posed in front of the camera. This is why on EVERY SHOOT I encourage you to take a break at a cafe along the way, indulge in some food and grab a taxi if your feet are even slightly sore. Often I find it is these moments of natural interactions and relaxation that result in some of the best photos. And guess what, it's all on me! While our photo session may have ended, our relationship is far from over. Over the coming weeks you will be able to hand pick your favourite images from a private, online proofing gallery. I will bring the most out of every one of your selections in post production, and then send you print and web ready images that can be downloaded with a single click. You are free to share and print you photos as much as you like. If you require further retouching, an additional hour is included with every package.

As I'm sure you know, the wedding photographer you choose greatly influences how your day is documented and portrayed. Each photographer creates their own version of your wedding as seen through their unique filter. Some photographers have a story in mind before they even arrive. Brides and grooms who end up choosing me do so because they want something REAL, not another formulaic bridal magazine story. They desire artistic, documentary style imagery that captures and conveys the essence of themselves, their families and friends. My newlyweds often comment that they didn't even notice me during their ceremony and are thus a little perplexed as to how I captured some of their favourite images. This is the way I intend it to be, discrete, because it's not my day, it's yours. However, when it comes time for receptions, groups shots and after-parties I'm not afraid to get right into the mix. Interacting with guests is really the only way to capture things from their perspective. If you think our workings styles are fitted for each other, I would love to tell the story of your wedding day.

Your love is one-of-a-kind. Whether you're celebrating an anniversary, feeling adventurous, or looking to mark your engagement, you deserve a photographer who'll make sure the photos are worthy of the moment -- and ones you'll cherish for years. As a photographer for over 10 years, and a professional lifestyle portrait photographer since 2018, I bring a down-to-earth, no-fuss approach to every couples and engagement shoot -- so you can relax and trust that everything's taken care of. I bring a documentary approach to couples/engagement photography -- which means I don't hold back when it comes to giving you all the photos from the session. I'm always looking for the story-within-the-love story: the scrunched-nose laughter at your loved one's terrible jokes, the moment when you're gazing into each other's eyes and forget the camera's there. With all my couples, the goal is to have a session where you feel like you're hanging out with an old friend -- so you can be authentically you. Looking for a wedding photographer, too? I've got you covered! Have a look at my Half-Day and Full-Day Wedding Packages on my portfolio.

Intimate Elopement Session

Elopement are usually mini weddings with a small number of guest. Couples mostly only ask for the coverage of the ceremony, family photos, and some formals. 2 hours is enough for most elopement coverage. For the 2 hours of coverage, the couple will get photos from their ceremony, family photos, wedding party photo and couple's portrait. I always like to arrive on location 30 minutes before the ceremony to scout the location and get ready. During the ceremony, I like to use my zoom lens so I don't have to stand too close to the couple to capture the critical moments such as the ring exchange. I always ask the couple to have a family photo list ready before the wedding so we can do family photos right after the ceremony before people start to wonder around. After the family photo, I will take the couple and the wedding party to my scouted locations or travel off site to do photos. Even though I know how to do great wedding party photos and couple's portraits, I encourage the couple to find their own inspirations such as build a Pinterest board. This way, I know what the couple likes and can make sure the favourite shots and moments are captured. I usually come home with 200 to 400 photos and I pick the best 100 to 200 to do editing. The finished photos will be delivered via online gallery where the couple can download, print and share the photos with friends and family.
