I've been lucky enough to document some pretty incredible and unique celebrations of love since 2012. My work has allowed me to travel all over the world, from the olive fields of Tuscany, to historic manors in Norway, hot islands of Malta, sunset beaches in Bali, rolling hills of New Zealand, and locally, from Perth, Brisbane, Tasmania, Adelaide, Sydney, & to some of the most beautiful parts of northern NSW.

Style


My work is on the documentary & natural side of the wedding photography fence, with romance, elegance & mood thrown in. I look for the intimacy & human connection in the 'in between' & unseen moments, searching for light & beauty. I find that allowing my couples to be themselves within a comfortable and intimate space, is key to being able to capture images that hold emotions which they will want to remember until they grow old together.

I strongly believe that my artistic practice should represent the honest & perhaps complex story behind your day. There's more to true love than the wedding day. Together, you have gone through a unique journey, from the first dates, to falling in love, moving in together, sharing best friends, supporting one other in the harder times, the proposal.. so many precious memories that have led you to this milestone.

Now, it's time to get dressed up, feast on top notch tucker & hand selected booze, and perhaps have a good ole' boogie to some fine tunes with your best of friends, family & love of your life.

My aim is to capture the good, the bad & the ugly (in a good way), of you & your loved ones in these moments, as your most vulnerable and authentic selves, evoking the warmth between you and reaching through to your true characters, capturing a real representation of who you are, together.

When you look at your wedding photos, I want you to be able to relive the feelings and many different emotions that made up the whole day, the crushing hugs, giant smiles and sometimes silly faces, beautiful tears, crazy dance moves, and remember how full to the brim with love you both felt.

About 


There are certain things in life that get me.. the light at the end of the day, road trips & blues music mixed tapes, any individual who can do a good Michael Caine, waiting for a storm to hit, old houses, trips to Europe, chilli choc tops at Cinema Nova & 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 Fine Art 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 just over 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.

When I'm not shooting weddings, I'm immersed in my commission & personal 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 magazines and online Internationally, including Vogue Living, Real Living, Yen Mag, Art Aesthetica, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Frankie, Peppermint, The Design Files, Modern & Contemporary Art & more. My artworks are represented by Modern Times and Curatorial & Co.
