I wagged a lot of English classes in my high school days to hang out with local photogs, already knowing that all I wanted was to be a photographer. So the worst thing for me to be asked to do is to write, and even worse than that is to write about myself!  So I asked other people who know me well to write a little something…


You hate writing…that’s why you became a photog and not a journo and you’ve been doing it forever and still love it. The main complaint people have is that their face is sore from laughing, and you occasionally get called a dork but you think they mean it with love 🙂

I think you are totally about laughter, keeping it fun, helping the most timid groom come out of his shell and relax. You give great direction and like to capture the essence of an occasion through fun and laughter and good times.

Our kids had so much fun with you in the studio! They often ask if they can go and play at Sachas house because you have a way about you that just makes people at ease so they enjoy themselves. Its obvious that you love what you do.


Sacha has been taking our family photos in her studio every year for the past four years.  We find her to be fantastic at capturing our children; they warm to her friendly bubbly nature instantly.

We also love that Sacha takes the time to capture our family, often just patiently waiting for that perfect moment to snap away.  She is extremely fussy when it comes to getting the lighting, backdrop and stance right.  I am always so excited to receive the finished disc from Sacha as above and beyond the amazing quality of the photos every time we visit her she manages to add that little bit of diversity and a personal touch unique to our family photo.

Sacha will spend the time listening to your requests and I have learnt over the years that her own inspiration and idea’s are equally creative and trust her completely to use her artistic flair.  I would have no one else photograph my Children.  When they smile for Sacha they are enjoying themselves and always have a natural genuine smile on their faces – something that always shine’s through in the photos.

I have recommended Sacha to all our family and friends, who too have used her and been wrapped with their photo’s.

I look forward to all the future family photo’s we will have with her – you can put no value on capturing truly happy warm family moments.

Sacha – you were a pleasure to deal with in preparation for our wedding.  On the day we felt at ease as you guided us and kept everything running smoothly and on time. We very promptly received our photos and not only loved them !, but were blown away with the degree to which you captured the spirit, moments and emotions of the event. Without hesitation, as soon as we had our first child, we only wanted baby photos of our darling daughter done by the best …You! Only you manage to capture her cheeky personality, inner & outer beauty – in a photo. We are constantly asked who did our wedding and baby photos. It’s always with confidence we send them your way. Thanks again Sacha.

Both Pete and I were thrilled with your ability to capture the essence of our wedding day  and our personalities through your photos.   We really enjoyed the shoot, and the opportunity to relax and play up.  Our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the DVD slide show, especially the bloopers reel at the end.  It was an absolute crowd pleaser!  Thank you once again for your amazing contribution to our day.

Being two Commercial photographers getting married we had high expectations for our wedding photography. Sacha not only met our expectations but exceeded them. She relaxed us, was fun and encouraging so that we got great shots and also had a ball doing it!  We love our photographs. Sacha captured our fun side and also the depth of our feelings on our special day. Her creativity in ideas and locations is fantastic with a modern and fresh approach all the way through.  We are recommending Sacha to all of our friends because we know they will be as happy as we are with our wedding photographs.  Awesome work Sacha, we couldn’t have asked for better!
