This is what a wedding means to me…
It is the most special of days, there is laughter, there are 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.
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.
