Wedding Photography

 

This is what a wedding means to me…

It is the most special of days, there is laughter, there is tears, there is joy and there is love. This is a day filled with fleeting moments, where time stands still and two people join together.

I guarantee I will capture unrepeatable emotions that few people will even notice. I don’t just use my cameras for this; I use my heart, soul & all that I am.

About me;

A quick “about me”… my first professional assignment was in 1998 in Alice Springs, I then moved to Cobargo NSW (Bega Valley) in 2001, my home ever since. I have been a full time professional photographer since 2004, this is not just a sideline or hobby for me – I am deeply committed to my art & profession.

In that time I have photographed over 300 weddings in; the desert, the beach, remote bush, snow, tropical islands & major cities, ranging from 2 to 500 people. Although I have extensive experience in the areas of Sport, Landscape & Commercial photography, people are my passion, especially weddings.

My approach to your wedding would be – even though I play a very important part of your day, I don’t believe the whole day is about photography! I won’t drag you away from your family & friends for a 3 hour “shoot”, nor will I be telling you what to do all day long.

I like to be as unobtrusive as possible and not stand in the way of natural moments. I strongly believe in “keeping it real”, I love truth & authenticity.

I don’t follow the latest ever changing photography fads/gimmicks/props, to do so means your photos are not really “you” and will quickly date.

I want your photos to be more about you than me. Most off all I want to show who you are as individuals & the sum total of you, together – as life partners.

After many years of photographing around 45 weddings a year, I made the conscious decision to limit this. I get hundreds of enquiries every year, but I cap it at a maximum of  10 weddings per year now. Put simply, I am selective about the weddings I say yes to. With little advertising, many couples now come through word of mouth referrals from previous clients and carefully selected high quality wedding vendors.
About you;
Below is the type of couples who choose me as their wedding photographer :o)
  • No “Bridezillas” or “Grooms from Hell”, etc.
  • A couple who are getting married simply because they love each other.
  • A strong desire for a relaxed happy wedding, that they and all their guests will enjoy and remember.
  • An appreciation for high quality photography and understand what is involved in achieving my level of quality.
  • Nice people, who love what I do and welcome me into being an important part of a very,very special day
Pricing;
Wedding photography is one of the strangest things you will ever “buy”. You are investing a large amount of money, up front, for a service you can’t actually see, from a day that has not even happened yet. Being able to trust your photographer is everything.
When you first start looking, the broad range of pricing out there can be confusing!
$0-$1500 – friends, part-time/amateur/newer photographers with poor to average skills and experience.
$2000-$5000 – starting price for full-time professional photographers with good, to extensive skills and experience.
My wedding coverage starts at $2900. As a guide, most couples invest with me between $3500 and $8000, with the majority sitting comfortably in the middle.
