press weddings


I am at a loss for words.

I am giddy with excitement. My hands are shaking as I type this.


American Photo magazine has named me as one of the TOP TEN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THE WORLD FOR 2013!


Never it my wildest dreams did I ever think that this was possible.


oh my gawd .


I am so incredibly proud to be on this list and so honoured to be included among such talented photographers from around the world. A huge congratulations in particular goes to my dear friends Todd & Alyda McGaw of Todd Hunter McGaw Photography and the lovely Ashley & Jeremy Parsons of We Are The Parsons who are also on the list! :)

A big thank you to all my dear friends, family and clients who have believed in me and supported me along this crazy journey. I love you all dearly.

The print edition is yet to hit shelves, but you can purchase an issue on the zinio website or apps.


Now I must go drink some champagne!  :)
