arrow

Weddings

Kat and Marcus held their beautiful wedding at Alto Event Space in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. They have one of those stories that almost didn’t happen. They met on E-Harmony and had both already decided to close their accounts after a string of mediocre dates.

Thinking of Skipping the Engagement Photo Shoot? 3 Reasons Why You Should Reconsider

Personal

  Let’s face it, your wedding photography is an investment and one of the few items from your day that you can go back to, to re-live/remember your day. Long after the food is eaten, the flowers have wilted, your dress dry cleaned and sealed up and the decorations packed away; the images your photographer […]

Hi, I’m Sonya and Welcome to My Page!

Personal

I’ve always had a passion for story telling through the written word and through the art of photography. It’s almost ironic since English is my second language and I couldn’t speak, read or write it until I was about 6 or 7 years old. And then I discovered books.. lot and lots of books! By […]
