Becoming a wedding photographer was not something I had ever envisioned for myself when I first picked up a camera. However, over the years, I discovered a deep passion for capturing the most intimate and beautiful moments of people’s lives. In this blog, I want to share my personal journey and the reasons why I became a wedding photographer.

Through my lens, I have the privilege of documenting these stories and creating lasting memories for the couples.

Photography is an art form that enables me to express my creativity. From composing shots to playing with lighting and editing, every aspect of wedding photography allows me to unleash my creative spirit. It’s a constant journey of self-expression and improvement.

Few things are as emotionally rewarding as witnessing the raw emotions and love between a couple on their wedding day. Being able to capture these feelings and reactions in photographs is incredibly fulfilling. It’s an honour to create images that bring tears of joy to my clients’ eyes.

Weddings are a treasure trove of intricate details, from the floral arrangements to the bride’s dress and the intricate decorations. Photographing these details and bringing out their beauty is a skill I’ve developed and a joy I find in every wedding.
