Paris, late 90's. I'm a law student at the time, spending most of my time commuting in the endless corridors of the busy Parisian subway. I do not love it, but law is as good a career as any, I tell myself. It'll pay the bills, and will look good on a CV.

The beauty of life, however, is that it rarely turns out how we plan it. If someone had told me that a few years later I would be a wedding photographer on the other side of the world, I would have laughed quicker than it takes to say "get out of here". But I picked up a camera along the path of my corporate years and here we are now, 10 years in and counting. 

The good news is that I was you once. From Googling countless venues to feeling self-conscious about fitting into a tight dress, I've walked the wedding path as an excited but nervous bride-to-be. That's why I'm passionate about providing a simple, easy and seamless experience to my couples, beyond photography. I want to be a sounding board, a trustworthy friend who can be there when questions arise and doubts creep in this complex wedding maze. And of course, make them look good.

And you? You relax and have fun, and we'll do the rest x

The ultimate alarm clock and afternoon pick-me-up.

Independant, Arthouse, Foreign... A must for ongoing visual inspiration and getting lost in the moment.

The best way to open ones heart and mind, and get some perspective on life.

MY HOME
AND REFUGE

lipsticks

Classic French photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson have been a great influence.

Pictures, books and candles. Lots of candles.

Because they're mini luxuries in a stick, a touch of  bottled up fun and a tonne of glamour.

My Must Haves

Every year when I go back home, I love sitting at cafés and watching the world go by. I watch people and wonder where they're headed, what their life looks like.

my favourite spot

When I'm not traveling or photographing, I can be found curled up on our coach with a candle lit, enjoying a glass of deep red wine with my husband.

in my spare time

Fashion is my first love, and still informs my shooting style, my approach to posing, and my tendency towards editorial imagery, layers, and texture.
