A photographer extraordinaire! I have commissioned Yve on a few occasions, but none have been so grand as for the stellar WAI Awards 2021 Gala Dinner! Yve captured the energy, the magic, and the essence of the room through the lens, adding her creativity and professionalism to deliver an exceptional portfolio of photos. Yve’s a pleasure to work with, delivers on brief, and more.

Thank you so much they are some of the best pictures I’ve seen of me speaking. If not THE best. You have one looking through someone’s elbow and they have my LinkedIn profile open, that’s gold. How you got that spontaneously, I will never know!

Yve did a fantastic job for my University of Otago recruitment publications. I’m in Dunedin, New Zealand, but distance was not a problem for this assignment – Yve nailed the brief and provided an excellent selection of portraits for me to choose from. Her approach was totally professional but also very friendly and her communication was top-notch.

nothing was too much trouble. I am thrilled with the results. For portraiture, there would be no hesitation in recommending her to individuals, corporates, small businesses, conferences, etc.
