editorial wedding photographer
Hello and welcome, friend!
I am so grateful you are considering Serenity Photography for your event. I feel humbled and privileged for the opportunity to document your love story.
Over 25 years have passed since I first held a camera in my hands and experienced an eternal love affair with the art of photography, driven by an insatiable desire to capture the breathtaking beauty of our planet. Through my lens, I aimed to evoke a sense of serenity in those who would gaze upon my images.
Today, I stand humbled and grateful to all the amazing souls who have entrusted me with their most treasured memories. Your love stories have touched my soul and inspired me to become a better version of myself. It is an honour to walk alongside you on this extraordinary journey, where emotions run deep, laughter fills the air, and hearts overflow with love.
Here's to capturing the magic of your love, one frame at a time.
Cheers to you, daring dreamer!
Little did I know that this passion would eventually lead me to found Serenity Photography, as I've come to realize that I had the power to infuse serenity into the whirlwind of wedding planning and the frantic pace of the wedding day itself. I yearned to be the calming presence, the pillar of support for couples on their most important day. I strived to go above and beyond, ensuring that their wedding day became a realization of their dreams. Guided by my knowledge, skill, and expertise, I endeavored to provide a sanctuary of peace amid the joyful chaos. For more than a decade, I have had the privilege of documenting weddings, and in doing so, it has profoundly transformed me as a person. Despite the cliché, the truth remains that I have learned invaluable lessons from the remarkable individuals I have encountered on these journeys. They have graciously invited me into their lives, allowing me to witness and immortalise one of the most intimate and cherished days they will ever experience. Love has opened my eyes to the power of connection, vulnerability, and growth. Behind the lens, I've learned that every click captures not only a single moment but also the incredible potential for love to change lives. It's a privilege I cherish, for I get to freeze time and create memories that will weave through the tapestry of generations to come.

With his background in engineering, Lawrence brings a unique skillset to the team. On the day of the wedding, he takes on the role of a second shooter. Apart from covering different angles and assisting Anastasia on the day, he is a master at capturing candid, often funny, moments: he "hides in the bush with a telephoto lens" waiting for the guests to forget about the camera.
Lawrence's exceptional people skills and calm personality create a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.
Travelling all over the world & working for United Nations for almost a decade, has made me realise that the world is bigger than us and even a simple act of kindness can make a big impact. I have partnered with I=Change to support close to my heart causes and donate 10% of earnings to environmental and humanitarian projects.
