Hey, I'm Becky

A wedding photographer, on a mission to bring colour, style, and personal connection through photography.

What makes me different to other photographers is that you not only get a supplier, you get a laid-back foodie friend who loves to get to know you and your individuality, and in turn, you get colourful, cool and documentary-style alt photos.
