Before I was a full-time Photographer, I was a Interior Designer, having obtained a Bachelor's degree with full distinctions, I am still very passionate about Interior Architecture. With an experienced background in Interiors, my approach to each shoot is from an artist eye. I also love to incorporate the "less is more" principle, as this forms the foundation for all my shoots.

Don't you just love the word Unity. I love when couples get united in my romantic beautiful soft light photography session. My main aim is to focus on fun, love and happiness. See this couple shoot as the next journey in your relationship and it will be made perfect by the everlasting images and memories that i'll be capturing for you to cherish forever. The best time to shoot a couple shoot is early morning, late afternoon or on cloudy days :)
