What is your story? How did you meet?
“We met on a church trip to Africa. ” “I first saw her through the crowd as I was singing on stage it was as if time stood still and she was the only one in the room.” “ It was serendipity; we met at train station in Germany, only for a moment, then years later at a wedding in Australia. We have been together ever since.”” We grew up together, our families were close, we fell in love at 17 that was 30 years ago she is the best thing that ever happened to me.” Your story embodies what I love about life, it is why I do what I do, every story is different and deserves it’s own unique approach. Welcome to my passion.
Let me experience your love story from the first email, to the couple photo shoot, to the wedding day and beyond. Your story began long before I met you and will last long after the click of the shutter. As the seasons pass the time moves on from generation to generation your story can be remembered through the imagery composed as I partner with you to create a representation of your love as you begin a life together.
After years of perfecting my art; driven for my passion of people, photography and story telling, I have developed into a photojournalistic fine Art photographer.
No matter how we decide to approach your day; I want to be there to create something unique.

Do you travel and where are you based?
To knock on doors, look behind walls, walk in strange new places. I am forever passionate about life. For me photography is about capturing the journey.
Based in Melbourne and Sydney Australia. I travel where ever you require, both nation wide and internationally. Call and I will follow. I commonly photograph in Melbourne, Sydney, The Hunter Valley .
How long until we receive our wedding photographs after our wedding?
One of my biggest commitments is to at least have a feature collection of images in your hands 3 weeks after your big day. With the rest shortly followed.
What is an E-Shoot?
I love the opportunity to capture work out side of the wedding day, some times we might use the couple photo shoot for styled photos before the day and get you accustomed to being in front of the camera it also helps build rapport with myself . These photos are sometimes used with Hair and makeup trails as well invitations.
Or you might opt for a post wedding shoot. Where we meet up and do fine Art images after the wedding. This is great to relieve the time pressure of your wedding day and try more unique locations.
Can we meet, what is the booking process?
These days more often than not I meet via phone or Skype after works hours on a weekday, then in person at the e-shoot, as it seems more convenient for people. However we can also meet in person at Magenta (just outside of The Entrance) if thats preferable I have some Sundays available.
Do you have specific photographers you work with, when including a second photographer?
Yes I have a select few, amazing second photographers, I commonly work with. They own and run their own wedding photography businesses.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, I require a $500 retainer.
