Tell us about your photography background and what got you started in Wedding Photography?
I was lucky enough to realise my dream job from the young age of 10 where I used to take some lovely photos that only my parents would think were good and have now been a full time photographer for over 10 years. My first wedding was 7 years ago when I shot my brothers wedding on Waiheke Island. I have fallen in love with weddings as they really have it all from documentary to fashion. It’s so special to be chosen to be the person that captures a couples intimate day.
Tell us the story of how Bayly & Moore came about?
Si was a musician and spending a lot of time recording and touring for different bands and Soph was working as a freelance designer at a few ad agencies, and we were both shooting stills on the side. Soph shot a band Si was playing with at a festival, they met up backstage and the rest is history. We both realised not long after meeting that we enjoyed being around each other romantically as well as creatively and we were both wanting to shoot more and push ourselves to become more focussed on photography, so we threw ourselves in the deep end by shooting a friends wedding and patching together any small jobs we could along the way. The learning curve was steep but wonderful.
