Work With Me

“Photographs are my attempt to pause time, to hold onto unique and unrepeatable moments before the moment slips away, the memory fades and dulls over time, and all that we’re left with is that single cherished photograph”

What I Offer


Wedding Photography

Your Wedding Date

You have only one opportunity at capturing those once-in-a-lifetime wedding memories and you want exceptional, out-of-this world photos journaling or capturing these special memories. Photos you will admire, cherish and treasure always.

It’s All About You!

I want to tell YOUR story, without missing one single moment. On your special day I’m going to be witnessing and sharing your most authentic, emotional moments. You are entrusting me with the magic of your wedding day and although I like structure when it comes down to defining a timeline to make sure we cover all of the important moments, I will not interfere in the way your day unfolds. I want you to enjoy the day without stress. Have fun! Let’s think ‘outside the box’!

Because I celebrate and respect your individuality and your personality, I would prefer for you to be yourself. No awkward poses. Together we will ensure we get beautiful portrait photos during the prep part of the day, as well as tasteful, elegant and stylish photos in the couples shoot. During the ceremony and reception we will be ready to photograph those emotive, fun and precious moments.

Lastly, so you know, the photographs I capture throughout the day are taken with an album layout in mind. Should you opt for an album, your images will be ready for designing an artsy album you will just love to share!

Personal Branding and Branded Lifestyle Photography

Your Personal Branding

Personal branding is about marketing YOU. You get to define and consciously manage your personal brand. Let’s put together your personal branding with photos reflecting the essence of who you are. We’ll start with the professional pose and move on to the imagery that reflects your interests and your passions.

Build your Personal Brand with Professional Photographs

The benefits

Professional portraits take time and money investment but are essential for any business owner who takes pride in their brand and what they do. Used on a website and social media, they give a prospective client a first look at who you are and how you present yourself. If you had a choice of two professional speakers to hire for an event and one had a selfie taken on their phone as their profile image on their business website and the other had an up to date personal branding image, which would you choose? Professional portraits are important to make a good first impression before someone meets you in person.

Who benefits?

There might be the misconception that professional portraits are only for business owners, but they are as important for business owners and entrepreneurs as they are for company employees. Most people have a LinkedIn profile these days and personal branding portraits are applicable to everyone who’s looking to make meaningful connections and possibly move jobs or get hired.

Choosing the right package for you

Before booking a personal branding shoot, it is crucial to discuss the photographer’s packages and select one that most suits your needs.

I have two packages you can choose from.

  • The Moment

We spend 90 minutes in this shoot, capturing your professional look, and with one wardrobe change, your informal social look.


  • The Journey

We take the day, and capture your story. Usually starting of with your professional portraiture, we win your potential customers and peers’ respect with uniquely presented images.

Thereafter we capture your life passions! Whether it be your family, hobbies, favourite social project, or even special holiday destination. We show the world the essence of YOU.

Beside your professional look, you can choose up to 4 different scenarios.


To have you look superbly beautiful in each setting, I have a professional makeup artist joining us to do your makeup, and joining us for the day to do the necessary touch ups.
