There are certain things in life that get me.. the light at the end of the day, road trips & blues music mixed tapes, any films with Michael Caine in them, waiting for a storm to hit, old houses, trips to Europe, chilli choc-tops & conversations that make me question things. I am also an old fashioned romantic, which probably explains my career choice.
I'm an award-winning exhibiting Photographic Artist and founder of I Got You Babe. I live in an old art deco house in Pascoe Vale South in Melbourne with my muso hubby Jake & our two intensely affectionate tonkinese cats, Charlie & Min. We married almost two years ago in Autumn out the back of an old shop under a 100 year old grapevine in one of my favourite country towns, Castlemaine. Skipping formalities, we decided to go straight for the 70's themed disco party, calling it 'Boogiewed', based on our favourite music festival. Dressing up in gold, we asked a close friend to snap the night up on a bunch of old film cameras and expired film, and drank & danced to old soul records ( & a pretty good late night Spotify playlist when our deejay went to bed) with our mates until 7am. It was a bangin' good party.
I started I Got You Babe in 2012, which means I've been doing this wedding thing 8 years now. When I'm not shooting weddings, I'm immersed in my Commercial & Personal exhibition work, desiring to create new work and push myself creatively, which then feeds back into my work with my couples. My work has been published extensively in print and online Internationally, including Real Living, Yen Mag, Aesthetica, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Frankie, Peppermint, The Design Files, Vogue Living, Modern & Contemporary Art & more.
