“Each story is unique and comes in a different shape and size. It’s my job to capture the magnificence and meaning as it unfolds. It’s not just about talent when I photograph a wedding, it’s about trust, and I hope that my easygoing, fun and friendly style brings a positive energy to the day.” – Yours Truly, David
Husband to Belle, Daddy to Jasmine Rose, and hopefully, potential photographer and friend to you.
I’ve been photographing beautiful weddings and portraits for close to a decade but I actually started out studying commerce and going on to work in finance. It was many years later that I got a chance to hold my first camera and discover the beauty of pressing pause on those wonderful moments, creating keepsakes of all that I had seen. My journey into weddings was organic when I was asked to capture the wedding of some friends. I had a clear career pathway planned prior to this but fate had other ideas and so my foray into photography and film began.
I’m incredibly passionate about my craft and I am so honored to be chosen by my couples. I consider it my role not only to take the images but to provide tips for them, to introduce industry connections, scout out the venue in advance, suggest ideas and above all, ensure that they are comfortable and completely at ease whilst I capture the emotion. I like to treasure the little things, to truly see your romance from all sides. The name Origami comes from that concept. Each story is unique and comes in a different shape and size. It’s my job to capture the magnificence and meaning as it unfolds. It’s not just about talent when I photograph a wedding, it’s about trust, and I hope that my easygoing, fun and friendly style brings a positive energy to the day.
When I look back at my journey so far I feel that everything has happened exactly as it was meant to. From meeting my beautiful wife, where we bonded over our mutual love of Japan, to creating a family of our own and making the move from working with facts and figures to film photography.
But what you need to know most about me is that I believe in love.
And money can’t buy you love.
"We absolutely love the photos!!! They are just magical. You were so professional and calm despite the rain and wind. Thank you for making us feel comfortable and relaxed, and of course reminding me to let the wind blow as it definitely added a special touch to our photos.
We really appreciate your support - all the emails, reminders, suggestions and tips. It’s our great pleasure to have you as our photographer. We can’t thank you enough!"
