Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… decluttering my home and organising as much as possible. Having things neat, clean and in order is my favourite thing in the world!

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… the first time I saw the Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach Oregon. I had both of my daughters with me who were assisting me for that shoot and we all just gasped at their beauty when we saw them. I will never forget how magnificent they were to see in real life.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Greece definitely!

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… meeting new people, getting to travel the world capturing love and educating inspiring photographers.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE… an interior decorator for sure!

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… don’t put yourself on a set “budget” and skip out on things that will really make the difference on your most special day. You will only get to do this day once. Be confident in who you are hiring to spend that day with you and help you cherish it for the rest of your life.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… the beach is life. We are a small beach town with friendly neighbours who don’t lock their doors and ice cream shops at every corner. I couldn’t imagine growing up anywhere else but near the beach and all the fun of the boardwalk life at the “Jersey Shore.”

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… Portland, Oregon hands down!

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? I have 2! Titanic and Avatar and I hope they make sequels to them!

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… A farm to table meal at a wedding I shot at Cedar Lakes Estate in New York. I had never had a meal so fresh and healthy and filling like that before!

THE PETS I OWN ARE… Maximus is my malshi pup, Deniro is our little guinea pig and Minnie is our pretty tabby cat. None of them like each other but we love them all.
