What’s it like having me there on your wedding day?
My goal with every wedding is to give you genuine and beautiful images that help you remember a never to be repeated day and for us to have fun in the process. I’m an easy-going and relaxed person and I often get told I put people at ease which comes in handy on wedding days. I also know when to take charge so we can smash out those family photos or get your bridal party moving to the next location.
You’ll most likely forget I’m there for most of the day. I blend in with your guests and capture candid moments throughout the day – your grandma giving you a big squeeze after you come back down the aisle, those big belly laughs, little touches and wild dance floor antics. In the end, you’ll be surprised by the moments captured in the images. To me, this is all part of the magic.
The photo shoot part of the day will be really fun, with lots of giggles and a relaxed vibe. Then we’ll ditch the bridal party so you don’t have them watching you for your couple photos. During the couple shots I don’t pose you or make you do awkward things that don’t look or feel like you guys. I’ll let you guys be you and simply guide you when you need it.
With everything in my business, I aim to treat people as I would like to be treated. I truly give a shit about every couple who’s wedding I photograph – I want you to have the best day possible and will do what it takes to help however I can.
Who is Kirsty?
When I’m being invited along to the most intimate day of your life, it’s only fair that I introduce myself and help you get to know me so that by the time your wedding day rolls around, I just feel like a friend with some bangin’ photography skills.
After studying photography and then spending time in commercial studios, I was naturally drawn to weddings which has been nothing short of sensational! I photographed my first wedding in 2012 and apart from a few stints of travel, I haven’t stopped ever since, deciding to go full-time in 2015.
Travel is a huge love of mine. I find that it refreshes and inspires me and gives a perspective that few other experiences can give. It is also my favourite type of photography to do just for fun. When my husband Andrew and I did a round-the-world trip for 7 months and I was taking hundreds (if not thousands) of photos every day, my camera really became an extension of my body. So many people say to put the camera down and just enjoy the moment but for me, there’s something about taking a photograph that slows down time, makes me more observant and preserves the moment. There’s a few travel photos below if you’d like to see what some places around the world look like through my lens 🙂
I’m also obsessed with dogs, love to dance and drink tea like it’s going out of fashion. On a rare weekend off you’ll find me at the beach by day and hopefully watching a great game of tennis with friends by night paired with a delicious meal.
