We believe the gifts we use in our business have come from God, hence the name Avodah which translates from Hebrew as "work for God".
We believe that we are made in the image of God and this influences everything we do in business. Our very business is intended to communicate that purpose.
Yes! We absolutely love travelling. Meeting new faces and exploring amazing creation is our passion. Please get in contact with us if you are planning on having a destination wedding and are in need of a photographer and/or videographer!

At Avodah, we believe having an engagement photo session is important for several reasons. First, this time allows you, as a couple, to get comfortable in front of the camera with your photographer, and figure out how you work best together before the main event. For more information see our engagement page.
Here at Avodah, we have the unique ability of being able to combine both photography and design skills. For weddings, this means that we don't only take the photographs but can also display them in ways that enhance the images and create the ultimate 'WOW' factor. To us, your wedding is way more than just taking photographs, filming or designing cards. We want your day to be better and even more memorable because we are there. When Avodah captures a wedding there is always two highly professional, award winning photographers, working in their specialist area to deliver you a variety of perspectives on the wedding day. This means you will receive creative and contemporary photography in a variety of perspectives. For more information see our services page.
Absolutely! We will provide you with a USB drive containing all of your final imagery and a private printing release that allows you to print your images at your leisure, if you book with one of our Diamond or Platinum Collections. The quality of your images WILL be affected depending on where you get your images printed, so included in our printing release are our professional recommendations for the highest print quality and durability over the years.
Do you know where you will have your photos taken? Here are some of our favourite places. We would love to discuss options with you!
How about a back alley with a fire escape, an old warehouse with interesting metalwork or worn windows? Graffiti, brick with peeling paint, or old signage can all serve as fantastic backdrops. If you are adventurous and like to explore, this setting can add striking contrast to you.
Natural settings are popular because outdoor light is so flattering and easy to work with. Most public parks work well for this type of session, or anywhere with trees, long paths, open grassy spaces, or ponds and fencing. If you like to be active and moving, a natural setting will provide the most freedom.
Seniors who like a controlled setting or clean lines, and don't want to worry about the elements or other contingencies might prefer the simplicity of the studio. Avodah offers a variety of props, furniture, and lighting to complement any style.
What are your passions? Channel that into a customized shoot somewhere you love. The barre at a dance studio? The golf course? With your surfboard at the beach? The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination.
Please make sure you're 15 minutes early to your session just incase there are any unforeseen delays. If you are running behind time please be sure to let me know.

We wanted to outline the benefit of purchasing canvases through us. When you place your canvas order, we want you to look your best when your face is blown up 25 times the size of a 4x6 print. Each canvas order gets hand-held through the entire ordering process, unlike the common consumer lab that just want to get the print out as fast as possible. We're going to edit the image according to the size you are print it; this way we can make sure everything is the best quality it can be. All of our canvases are ordered from a professional print lab, not a consumer lab, and we work together to ensure that your canvas is absolutely perfect so that in 10 years time your print looks as amazing as the day you got it. We do all the work and you enjoy the benefit. A canvas is a great way to output your amazing images, it displays your artwork in ways that showcase it as best as it can be. For more information see our frames and canvases page.
