Welcome to our storY
It’s hard not to write these things without sounding cliche, but here goes… In the years of my life – our life – I’ve learnt we’re all just playing along as we go. Jumping hurdles. Creating and living out new memories and stories, and trying our best to love the whole experience that is life, as best as we can. When I picked up a camera for the first time – actually it was probably about 30 years ago on my Mum’s old Pentax, I’d found a way to express my voice, and tell my own stories.
What does this have to do with figuring that great mystery called life?
Five years ago I was separated from my wife, and my whole world was turned upside down. I quickly learnt a whole lot about myself – I actually learned to grab each day like it really matters. No more sweating the small stuff.
I travelled, made new friends and stopped to smell the flowers a bit more often. One theme that sticks is the stopping to smell the flowers. And – more importantly, taking pictures of them.
These days, as ever, my camera comes with me everywhere. It’s my happy place – creating images.
Two years ago – I met the love of my life. My new life. My Renée. And at the click of fingers, she’s restored my faith in what it means to be in love.
To really celebrate it.
Life is a story, and everybody’s story is completely unique.
One of the things I really love about shooting weddings is getting the opportunity to be a small part of a big day for someone else’s story. And more importantly – to celebrate it with you.
Most of my past “clients” (I really dislike that word…) I’ve had the pleasure of shooting with, I now call friends. To me, photography is so much more than just taking photos, it’s sharing the moments and memories that make up the story. When you invite Renée and I to be a part of your day – you get a whole lot more than just a guy with a camera. You get a couple of new friends, and a part of our story too. 🙂
