I didn’t pick up a camera until I was 25 years old. I had some experience in the digital side of things previous to this (photoshop, graphic design, etc.) but did not pick up a camera until I was 25. However, when I did my whole world changed. I did my first wedding for a small fare for starting out, but I was immediately blown away by the moments and flashes in time I was experiencing with these strangers! They had opened up and let me in on something so private, so sacred and so personal and I was responsible for documenting it all.
It’s the overall wedding story that pushes me forward – its the only way I can ‘see’ a wedding and its incredibly rewarding. Each one provides me with a whole new chance to feel this surge over and over; this is my drive to create unique, authentic and honest images that make a statement. Every single couple, every single wedding is totally different in feeling, personality, traditions and I capture it in style. One of the best compliments I have received on my work was that it is so incredibly varied, with each image ‘looking totally different than the last’.
So far I have been blessed to work with so many beautiful couples from all over the country! I have been invited to weddings all over the maritimes and abroad; at home in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and across the country in Ontario. I have also covered weddings in the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica and Mexico.
