My name is Vanessa Perri-Khoo and I am a female photographer who has a passion for travelling and after living here there and everywhere in 2011 finally decided to settle down in Devon
My passion for photography started at the age of 10 when my Dad gave me my first SLR camera... from then I have never put my camera down! I became my friends’ worst nightmare, constantly snapping away. Alas, it has proven to be worthwhile as we reminisce and have a laugh at all the bad hair choices we made.
To capture a moment, frozen in time, this fascinates me the most about photography. To then be able to look back at it and recall that moment!
I went to University and studied marketing and photography remained a hobby. Then one day I decided to take the next step and I felt that the best way for me to learn and to take this into a professional level was to follow other professional photographers.
Hence I decided to take a break from work and I travelled to Malaysia, where fortunately for me, my Aunt is a respected professional photographer. I ‘followed’ Samantha Khoo and went under her tutelage.
I soon discovered that photography was far from being "just a click". With Sam I believe I developed. I trained my eye for every detail in a shot... simple things... but it is these simple things that make a huge difference.. It is with the development of knowing and spotting these details that make the end result that much more!
After nearly half a year with Sam, I moved to Devon where I met my now Husband and have two Beautiful Children... Francesca and Mia.
I have a home studio and a beautiful garden to be able to capture some photos outside too. I love just letting ones doing their own thing in their own time so that they feel comfortable and in the meantime I capture those special moments.
I started capturing weddings 7 years ago, I love being a part of this magical day and getting to know the Bride and Groom. On the day I go around photographing all those moments that go by so fast and you get to relive only by going through the photos. It is such a powerful tool and I am honoured to be able to do this. I found myself not only being a photographer but I try to help in any other way I can. I hope you will let me Capture Your Big Day.
