I LOVE TO DRAW, WATCH A CRAP LOAD OF FILMS, LOVE SEINFELD, DRINK A LOT OF COFFEE AND HAVE A BIG HEART. I LIVE ON THE SOUTH COAST OF NSW, AUSTRALIA. I HAVE AN AMAZING WIFE AND A BEAUTIFUL SON.

I was brought up in a pretty big family with 4 other siblings. Anyone from a big family knows that it’s pretty hard to carve out anything for yourself. Fighting for a sense of individuality was tricky growing up. For me, that happened in primary school, when I picked up a pencil and started to draw.

As time went on, I became interested in the way light shapes an image, giving it depth. By high school, my portraits were becoming pretty realistic. At about the same time, my dad started playing around with black and white photography, and made himself a homemade darkroom. I think that was about the time that I started to understand what makes great images and I was hooked!

Every time I photograph a wedding, it brings me right back to those first days of me picking up a pencil and pressing it against a blank piece of paper, or smelling darkroom chemicals while watching an image come to life.

These memories mean so much to me!

When I photograph your wedding, what I want for you is this; I want my images to bring you back to your wedding day. Exactly how it was. All of the memories and emotions, every single time you look at the images. I want you to feel like you are right there all over again! To me, that’s the most important thing that I can offer you guys.

 

NOW, THAT I’VE TOLD YOU MY STORY, HOW ‘BOUT TELLING ME YOURS 🙂 HOW DID YOU GUYS MEET? HOW DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE BOTH RIGHT FOR EACH OTHER? WHAT HAVE YOU GOT PLANNED FOR THE WEDDING? LET’S CHAT!

MY APPROACH

So you’ve read this far… Awesome! I’m going to split this block of text up in the number of parts that best described my methods in certain moments.

1 | PERSONALITY

I’m going to be around you guys all day long, but you don’t have to worry. Why? Because I’m fun, relatable and super easy to approach. Oh before I forget, I won’t tell you to put your jewellery on 10 times to get the right shot. I like to just let it flow. You can see some of my testimonies here.

2 | EXPERIENCE

Human beings are weird creatures, we have soooo many different emotions that can play out over just one single day. I’ve shot around 700 weddings in my time and can pretty much say that I’ve experienced it all; 2 cakes smashed, at least 10 brides fall over during the first dance, etc 😛 But it’s the important things I’m talking about, tears, warm moments, funny moments, I’ve been through them all and I can bet my butt that I will do my best to be there at the right time to capture it!

3 | BE IN THE MOMENT + STAYING POSITIVE

There’s heaps of times a wedding can get a bit crazy! Different flowers may rock up to your door step, a groomsmen might forget his shoes, you forgot the rings at home… Yep I’ve seen it all 🙂 The best thing from it is to see the lighter side. I love to see a well planned day, we all do, but the most important thing to me is capturing peoples emotions, which is what weddings are about.
