" My wedding work is mixture of timeless artistic portraits alongside reportage-style images with an editorial flair. Creating images that honour real life and soulful moments is fundamental to my work. I am constantly anticipating those offbeat moments on a wedding day that are perfectly imperfect and that make life worth living.
On a personal note, shooting a wedding
is more than just taking photos. The story
of a family and the anthropolical aspect
of a wedding fascinates me. After living in many countries, i've learned to observe and understand people, relationships, read the energy in the room and anticipate that precious moment before it’s gone."
CONNECTION & PLAYFULNESS
" The best work happens when I feel an honest connection with my couples, knowing that they can fully trust me to capture the delicate mix of real emotions and the artistic imagery. Understanding their story, how they are envisioning their celebrations is a key part of the creative process.
My dream client likes to embrace their personalities in the vision of their wedding day and focus on the special moment they are about to share with their loved ones. They usually love a multiple days celebration, appreciate art and fashion, and a good dance floor.
I always keep in mind that you will need time to truly take in the incredible experience of the day. To achieve this, keeping an awareness of how people
feel in front of the lens, and knowing when to step in, and even more step away, is essential. I like to be engaging with people in order to make them feel at ease."
STAND THE TEST OF TIME
" My aim is to also bring a sense of timeless beauty and understated elegance to my work. I aspire for my images to be a testament to beauty that lies beneath the surface. Therefore creating a body of work which coherent and cohesive that will also stand the test of time, is at the core of my style.
I challenge myself to find the beauty and give the perfectly imperfect a sort of dream-like quality. "
