How would you describe your style?
My journalistic style involves the careful and skilful documentation of the raw elements that tell your story, without getting in the way. Relaxed, unrehearsed and real. To put your mind at ease, I offer direction and advice when needed (e.g. during the portrait session) so that you can relax in knowing that your wedding photos will look amazing. My instinct drives me to seek out gorgeous light and to make use of beautiful natural surroundings to provide you with photographs that transport you back every. single. time. I have a keen eye for the small gestures of love; a hug, an embrace, a kiss, and I strive to provide you a personal and unique experience by playing an active role in ensuring your day flows smoothly and stress-free. I know that planning a wedding is no easy feat! I have a wealth of experience that I’m dying to share with you to make it just that little bit more enjoyable!
Will you travel for our wedding?
Most definitely yes! Although I am based in Sydney, I am available for weddings all over NSW (Southern Highlands, Hunter Valley, South Coast), Australia and internationally. I am passport ready, so wherever you want me, I will be there. So far, I’ve been lucky enough to photograph in Vancouver, Vienna, Normandy, Fiji, London and Amsterdam.

How do we book you?
It goes a little bit like this…. Shoot me an email or use the contact form to check if I’m available on your wedding day. If your date is still available, then you can breathe a big sigh of relief! I’ll send across all the information that outlines my different collections & pricing. You’re bound to find an option that provides you with everything you want (and more!). I love to meet each of my couples before the big day to ensure we’re a good fit too. To secure your date & wedding coverage, a $1500 retainer and completed wedding contract are all it takes to lock in the date exclusively for you. As I receive a lot of enquiries for the same date, I do have a first-come first-served policy to keep it as fair as I can. The balance is due one month before the wedding.
What are your rates?
A guide to my rates is listed on my pricing page.
What do we get?
A tall, dark and handsome wedding photographer documenting all the intimate moments at your wedding – duh! You will also receive your photos, edited and in high resolution on USB (with no watermark) and an online gallery to share your precious memories with friends and family. There are many extras you can also choose from, including engagement sessions, my stunning fine-art albums, fine-art mounts & prints.
How many photos will I receive and when will I get to see them?
The number of images depends on the length of coverage, but my average is around 600-700 individually crafted photographs for an 8 hour wedding. It generally takes six to eight weeks for your photos to be uploaded to your online gallery for viewing.
Are all the photos processed?
Yes, all of the photos are processed to achieve a consistent tone and style that matches the work you can see throughout my website. My editing style is clean, natural and timeless – so that in twenty years time you won’t look back at your photos and cringe! Post-production or “photoshopping” of images to drastically alter or remove elements of a photograph (e.g. airbrushing) is not part of my standard processing workflow but can definitely be requested (additional fees apply).
Do you use a second photographer?
I usually work alone, but a second photographer is definitely available on request for weddings that require me to be in two places at once (I haven’t quite mastered that skill yet), larger receptions and for those times when you want even more photo goodness!
Where are you located?
My studio is based in Sydney’s leafy north-west (near Kellyville) in NSW, Australia.
