“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”
― Paulo Coehlo
It may come as a surprise that i never planned on being a Photographer of People. But i believe what was meant to be will be. Call it Destiny or whatever the Art of Photography found me and would not let up until it became an Intrinsic part of who i am today. And so NECTARINE was born. The last 8 or so years have been the most rewarding path of discovery of both myself and the love of many many young couples. I always feel sentimental at weddings, I regularly shed a tear ( yep, usually at the vowels, sniff ) and will quite often sneak home with a piece of Cake. I LOVE a modern, unconventional wedding with a relaxed vibe and feel its important to create a celebration that really reflects you both as a couple, be it elegantly understated, or wildly Bohemian.
The photographic legacy of print is a wonderful thing. I can picture your Grandchildren avidly looking over your Wedding Album when you are old and grey. “My my Gran, you were BEAUTIFUL !!”. I believe in Dogs in Bow-ties. Mismatched Bridesmaids and DIY styling. I believe in the Owl and the Pussycat, Shakespeare and that Crazy Uncle whose speech will surely be Hilarious. I believe that sometimes you do need 2 dresses, and 6 different cakes at the reception. I believe Wedding dresses, like personalities come in all shapes and colours. I believe in dancing Barefoot in your Wedding dress. Lastly, but most importantly, i aim to capture real CONNECTION, in all its candid spontaneity – I believe in NO CHEESE. Except, on a cheese board of course, and that is always most welcome.
