About Me

I am a mother of three boys (three boys, being punished for my sins!) and have been a fan of photography for years. I started shooting weddings seriously about five years ago. With the arrival of my twins, I decided to reduce my working hours in order to spend more time at home with my boys. Using photography to make up for the loss of income was a natural progression.

This is where you will be able to catch regular excerpts of what I am up to...

The two older flowergirls, were repeating a "naughty word" (stupid idiot) and would burst out giggling each time it was pronounced. I love these moments.



The rest of the images from this wedding in a day or two.

Time to stroke the ol' ego once again! Some feedback I received a while back, from Lorin (& Adam), after they received their pictures;
Dear Andrea and Ursula
Wow! You ladies are amazing!
Words cannot begin to express how amazing your photographs are.
The great thing is all the detail that we missed is captured in amazing detail (there were pizzas??) and each image is beautiful and thoughtful.
Thank you for allowing is to relive our day and enjoy it all over again. You have such amazing talent!
Love Lorin x

Well done Andrea.
These comments are to be expected as you are in my opinion rated in the top 10 photographers in the country and we can expect to many more compliments such as these as I myself am always inspired by your work. God bless

From elegant and sophisticated table centrepieces, to fun and quirky cake-toppers - every couple puts their own special touch to their wedding.


Ursula and I had an absolute ball photographing Gabi's & Llewelyn's wedding at The Cradle.


The day was a whirlwind of energy, right from the start.


There was such a great vibe and so much love and emotion, dancing and excitement. It was one of those weddings I wish I didn't have to leave!


Oh! And did I mention we had "THE BEST groomsmen in the world?" ;-)

Two unexpected visits to the Doctors rooms for two different midgets - and on two different days - my week is now out of sync by two days. I will try my utmost to post what I had planned to, but with the rest of the week being rather packed I am not at all sure.


I will leave you with this pic from Catherine's & Shaun's wedding which I am loving.

I love the two frames, how Catherine is framed in the one half and the hands & train framed in the other half.
