Hi, my name's Gerrie and I've been photographing weddings for about 4 years now and I can't imagine doing anything else. Weddings are happy, joyous, unpredictable, awesome, fun and the best part about the day is, I get to tell your story, from beginning to the end.
For about 20 years I was working as a professional singer and was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to tour and record with some great Aussie artists, and loved very minute of it! I got to see a lot of Australia and travelled overseas to places I wouldn’t have gotten a chance to get to, it was a ball… but as we get older and wiser life changes and takes us to new directions. I knew I had to do something creative , so I decided to turn my love of photography into a career and I can’t get enough of it. It’s the second best thing I’ve done in my life, apart from the first which was marrying my awesome hubby Stephen, who you’ll find as my second shooter.
So I put myself out there and started shooting live events such as festivals, music gigs and portraits and then came glorious weddings. Ah, weddings, they’re the best! They’re fun, unpredictable, fast paced, emotional (I get teary during speeches), and you get to see some wicked dance moves! I’m all about taking images just like a documentary film maker, I love telling stories through my images from beginning to end. I don’t want to make pretty pictures that are soulless I want to make pictures that will provoke emotions and memories for many years to come.
If you have any other queries about me, my work or anything else get in touch 🙂
