MY WORK


Thank you so much for considering me to capture your most precious memories. I’ve been privileged enough to make pictures with some of the most wonderfully interesting, kind & beautiful people that I’ve met over the last six years as a photographer. I am based in Melbourne and have been lucky enough to document the most incredible and unique celebrations of love all over the world, including Italy, Norway, Malta, Spain, Bali, New Zealand, and locally, from Perth, Brisbane, Tasmania, Adelaide, Sydney, & to some of the most beautiful parts of northern NSW.

My work is on the documentary, romantic and natural side of the wedding photography fence, with elegance & a tad moodiness thrown in. I look for the intimacy & human connection in the 'in between' & unseen moments, and love to use soft light and a nostalgic film-like feeling to capture the raw beauty & emotion in my images. I believe that full trust, and feeling comfortable within a safe and stress free space with your chosen photographer, is key to capturing images that hold true emotions which you will want to remember forever.

My aim is to capture you, surrounded by 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 for years down the road, I want you to be able to relive the magic and many different emotions that made up the whole day ~ made up of 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.

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. It may be a grand affair with all of the trimmings, or an intimate elopement in a foreign country. Whatever your plan, I’d love to capture this incredibly special celebration of love and life for you.

About ME


There are certain things in life that make me tick.. the light at the end of the day, road trips & blues music mixed tapes, any individual who can do an accurate Michael Caine impersonation, waiting for a storm, swimming in any water that I can find, 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 founded I Got You Babe in 2012. 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. Jake & I married almost three years ago, out the back of an old shop & under a 100 year old grapevine in one of my favourite country towns. Skipping formalities, we decided to go straight for the 70's themed disco party, calling it 'Boogiewed', based on our favourite music festival Boogie. 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, one of the best days of my life.

When I'm not shooting weddings, I'm immersed in my commission & personal work, pushing myself creatively, which then feeds back into the work I make 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, Peppermint Magazine, The Design Files, Modern & Contemporary Art & more. My artworks are represented by Modern Times, Curatorial & Co. & Metro Gallery.
