a little about shutter + lace?
I am not very good at writing about myself…to be honest, I am terrible at it. I have always preferred to express myself visually. For as long as I can remember I have always had a pencil or paintbrush in my hand and in more recent years….a camera. It is this passion for the visual arts that brings you here to shutter + lace………I love art…I love design….and I love photography!
and of course…..I absolutely adore weddings!
In fact, my guilty pleasure is my daily wedding blog fix…it is sooo addictive. There is nothing better than to check what super cute weddings have been uploaded overnight. I can’t get enough of the quirky, of the vintage, of the unique, of the stunning, of the traditional….or of the simple, plain and ordinary weddings captured from all corners of the globe. Borderline obsessive?? Possibly.
But what is not to love about weddings? or even wedding photography for that matter? Each frame taken forms a piece of the couple’s love story……it captures family and friends, tears and laughter…quite simply, memories.
Simple. Natural. Creative.
I love to capture moments as they are and as they unfold naturally. My job is to stand back and document your wedding, however I will give a little bit of direction where needed to ensure you get the best from your photography. I want the story I am capturing to be as close to natural as possible.
getting to know you…
Feeling comfortable with your photographer is super duper important….which is why we encourage a meet and greet or engagement photography session. This gives me the chance to interrogate you for every little detail of your wedding (for no reason other than my own twisted obsession with all things nuptial) and to give you a practice run to strut your stuff in front of the lens.
what if it rains (again)..in sunny Queensland?!
Although most photographers welcome the filtered light that cloud cover provides, we do not welcome the onset of torrential rain. But of course it does happen…..If it is pouring outside, we will of course do our best to make the most of what we have to work with, but sometimes it just isn’t the same as those photos of that ‘relaxed stroll in the garden’ or ‘that stolen kiss at sunset’. Which is why I offer a “Take 2″ session. I know that if it’s not your wedding day, it’s just not the same – but the offer is there to get those outdoor shots on a sunnier day, if you so choose.
