My name is Elise Daw, and my business name - A'Daw Photography - is a fun little play on my last name and is pronounced 'adore'. I started my wedding photography journey in 2014 when a friend of a friend asked if I happened to be free the next weekend to photograph their wedding. The rest, as they say, is history!
I fell completely in love with capturing people's love stories - the nerves, the laughs, the tears, the love, the rawness of emotion and the glamour. I want to capture that epic landscape photo for your wall, those precious memories of your families coming together and the candid 'in-between' moments. For the majority of the day, I will capture your wedding as it unfolds naturally, but will give direction when needed.
I'm not just there to capture your day, but I'm here to help you figure out your schedule so that you are optimizing time with friends and family, along with capturing the best light of the day. I'm here to recommend photo locations, venues, vendors... whatever you need.
My amazing husband, Steven typically comes with me as an assistant on your wedding day. This is to ensure that, on your day, I am focused on you and only you! So, if you book with me, you'll get a chance to meet him too.
Outside of photography, you can find me paddle-boarding at the beach, hanging out with my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Indy, travelling all over (and taking even more photos), or unwinding at the end of the day with a glass of red wine.
