“I must have flowers, always, and always.” — Claude Monet
I’m Jazzy, an incredibly lucky human who gets to work with people on the most special day of their lives.
Photography began as a hobby for me due to an undying fascination with capturing and documenting my life and the lives of those around me - in a totally non-stalker way. I’m a believer in doing the things you love, with the people you love, in the places you love and so one glorious day I decided to quit my job as a Librarian and become a poor, but oh so happy, photography student.
Back then I had no idea I would end up loving weddings - I hadn’t even been to one! But I knew I loved photography, people and real stories. It turned out, weddings brought together all of these things and so from my first one I was hooked.
As my poor student days came to an end I landed every new photographers dream job working with one of the world’s best wedding photographers; Jonas Peterson. Working with Jonas threw me into a whole new world of photography, I learnt not only how to tell a better story, but live a better story.
I now have my own photography business, specialising in - you guessed it - weddings! For me, a wedding is all honest moments and raw emotions and I love capturing them, whether it’s the look on a grooms face as he see’s his bride for the first time, the tears and laughter shared by everyone during the speeches at the reception and the crazy dance moves at the end of the night...
A few extra things you should know about me:
-I’m a people person (going to blame that on my Mum who can talk to almost anyone)
-I’m 1 of 6 and some of my siblings are 10 years older than me, so I have no qualms immersing myself in people’s lives from any generation and all walks of life
-I live on the Sunshine Coast which is also where I grew up
-I may live on the Sunshine Coast, but I travel everywhere for the weddings I capture
-Oh how I love a good cup of tea
