My parents are the ones who passed on the passion for Wedding Photography. As a little girl, my playtime was spent running around assisting them on Wedding assignments. It was wondrous to see my parents role in helping numerous couples immortalise their very special day.
This sentiment stayed with me to this day, and it is what I pride in my work today.
I aim to let you enjoy your day entrusting that I will be there wide eyed constantly in the look out for every special moment as it occurs.
I'm a big geek myself and absolutely love working with non-conforming couples who just want to do it their own way. I understand that every couple is different and requires a bespoke approach.
That's why we will have at least 2 consultations, to make sure that I'm delivering what YOU want!
Your Wedding Photos are there to remind you of your big day, so what use are they added to your digital clutter? This is why I also include sets of prints in all my packages, allowing you a t tangible memory you will instantly treasure.
My Candid Style
What to expect
Planning: We will have at least 2 consultations, one before you make a booking, outlining your schedule and what you want from the day. The second consultation will happen 6 weeks before the wedding to reconfirm your schedule and together we'll create a shot list, making sure I give you everything you expect
Booking: Your date is booked, upon payment of 50% deposit and signing of the contract. Then the remainder 50% would be due 30days before the wedding day.
Preparations: A mixture of Reportage & Styled Candid, where I'll capture details like the rings, you and your party as you're getting ready, with some fun elements thrown in the mix.
Ceremony: Reportage capturing arrivals, bride walking down the aisle, grooms reaction, vows, exchange of rings, first kiss, and all that's occurring in the moment.
Group Shots & Newly Weds: easy direction, helping you & your family feel relaxed with natural activities.
Reception: Reportage, capturing arrivals at venue, celebrations, first dance and all the authentic celebratory moments as they happen.
After your big day: I will send you a sneak peak of 3 photos, while you'll receive the entire collection within 30days. You'll also get your photos delivered via an online Gallery, a USB & a set of Prints.

A huge thank you to Desiree for our beautiful wedding photos! Desiree is amazing - we moved the date, changed the brief, had to deal with rain and traffic, but Desiree stayed super professional and nice and guided us all the way!! We are so happy with our photos. Thank you again.
