Professional Photographers Talitha, James and Cathy-lee Crawford
Talitha – Photography has always been a part of my life, as I grew up around it and knew I wanted to be a photographer from a young age. I make travel a priority, seeing new places and experiencing different cultures opens my mind and inspires me to grow. Italian food, cheese and fine wine are my vices. For relaxation I love to lay back with my pooch Tigerlilly and read a good book with a cup of tea. Rainy weather feeds my soul, I crave the sound and smell. I have been working my way up the ranks in our business for the last 10 years and have been loving it more every year. I live for those moments when I know I have caught a truly wonderful instant in time.
Tigerlilly my mini Schnauzer is my baby, she grew up with a camera in her face, she now pulls poses whenever she see’s me with a camera. It can be difficult to explain to her that she can’t be in everyones family and portrait shoots.
I love having the opportunity to meet so many happy, in love couples. It’s truly an honour to be asked to document one of the most important days in a persons life. My main goal for your wedding day is to help you relax and really enjoy the whole experience, it’s a fleeting moment and you want to have the best memories possible!
James – I was raised a coast kid, where I lived to surf and ride dirt bikes. This is still something I love to do every now and again, along with hitching up our camper van and taking off into the wide blue yonder with a bag FULL of camera equipment. My family tell me I am a people person and that I light up while interacting with everyone. Photography is something I have always been a part of, as my parents back in the black & white film photography days (Im not that old… :D) ran a Professional Photography studio. I have always had a camera in hand and traveled the world in my 20’s taking trillions of images (driving my traveling buddies mad). There is nothing I like better than to connect with the people I photograph; I don’t think this is something that I will ever tire of, every new shoot brings with it new possibilities and creative moments.
Cathy-lee – I adore being able to immerse myself in everything wedding. From meeting people for the first time, to shooting their wedding, attending to the ALWAYS stunning, ecstatic bride in any way I can, then capturing the delight on the grooms face and at times, a tear or two. I also adore designing the wedding albums. It totally is such an honour to be a major part of a wedding, being a calming, helping element is my speciality; one which has been nurtured over the past 20 years photographing peoples special events.
Stalking all facets of the industry is pretty interesting too, it keeps me up to date with current trends.
Another passion is travel, camera always in reach. What an adrenalin burst it gives me. It seems the more I photograph, the more imprinted on my mind the trip is. Ahhhh BLISS
