Tips I’ve Learned

Tori & Martin

I recently shot an engagement shoot for Tori and Martin. We opted for a green forest location which gave the pictures a beautiful dreamy effect. We had perfect morning light which shone through the trees every now and then as the clouds rolled in providing us with beautiful soft lighting. The above image is my…

Andi

Andi and I met at one of my favourite shoot locations one afternoon to capture a fairytale-like scene in one of her SnowWhiteProject dresses. We bonded over our love for OTT dresses and shiny details. I had my eye on this flowery backdrop for months and knew when I saw this emerald green dress –…

Zoe Brown – Outfit Shoot

Zoe and I met in Bree Street one morning to photograph this cute outfit! I loved how the location I chose complimented the colours of her outfit.

#UglyLocationChallenge – Warehouse

After many different suggestions, I was challenged to shoot in the Zando Warehouse specifically. When I contacted Zando they were very…

She chose the Vineyard Hotel Garden as her shoot location. On the morning…
