My journey as a photographer was not planned, it was rather chance (and most likely a little luck!) that kicked off one of the best rides of my life. It all began in the late 90s where, at the age of fourteen, I met and was hired by Freda Elliot-Wilson to assist her on shoots. I spent weekends carrying heavy equipment bags, passing lenses and positioning the brides dresses for the perfect shot. Working for Freda was an incredible opportunity – by opening her business to me I had the privilege to learn very valuable lessons, not just about business, but also about life and working with people. Back then I simply knew that I loved being surrounded by brides and the beauty that weddings bring, funny enough, initially I never even took a single photo! Today I know that the time spent alongside Freda during those formative years greatly contributed to the foundation of the enthusiastic entrepreneur and photographer I am today.
