My Journey

How it all started

From a young age, I was captivated by the power of storytelling through images. Growing up in Tasmania, I would often explore the natural beauty around me with a toy camera in hand, capturing the subtle play of light and shadow that turned everyday moments into something magical. This passion led me to pursue formal education in photography and cinema at Murdoch University in Western Australia, where I honed my technical skills and developed a keen eye for detail. I delved into the world of cinematography, immersing myself in the technical intricacies of composition, lighting, and camera settings. These skills seamlessly transitioned into my photography journey, where I craft beautifully exposed images infused with cinematic flair.

After graduating with flying colours, I began my professional journey as a music photographer. My portfolio boasts features in prestigious publications like The Guardian UK and the Perth Fashion Festival, alongside a diverse body of editorial and music photography.

I started photographing weddings by assisting some of the industry’s top photographers. These experiences provided invaluable insights into the art of wedding photography, from understanding the intricacies of lighting and composition to mastering the delicate balance of capturing candid moments while directing posed shots. Over the years, I have had the privilege of photographing weddings across the country, each unique in its beauty and emotional depth.

Philosophy and Artistry

My journey as a wedding photographer commenced in 2011, amidst an industry marred by quantity over quality practices. Witnessing this, I embarked on a quest to redefine wedding photography, striving for an experience that is compassionate and empowering. Despite running my own business, I continued to question existing tropes. I observed disparities in labor, coercive sales tactics, and unmet desires within couples. As a dedicated modern wedding photographer, I aim to capture polished images without the painful posing. I believe you should have a relaxed and trusted relationship with your photographer.

My goal is to ensure your most meaningful moments are captured and treasured, from booking to album delivery.

Let's celebrate love in all its forms and yearn for great memories. Together, let's redefine the essence of a wedding day, reducing the influence of archaic conventions. I invite you to embark on this journey with me, where breaking norms is not just accepted but celebrated, leaving behind any regrets.

In my pursuit of normalizing the modern wedding, I aim to collaborate with those who challenge conventional norms. My aim is to inspire you to embrace your unique vision for your special day.

Whether you opt for a traditional bridal party or not, identify as straight or queer, or plan a grand affair or an intimate elopement, the focus remains on the sentimental aspects. It's about cherishing the hilarious and precious moments, and acknowledging the fleeting presence of loved ones.

Let's redirect our attention to what truly matters: honoring your cultural roots and celebrating the union of two individuals in a sincere manner. Whether you choose to don white or forgo the traditional wedding dress, let's challenge ourselves to prioritize what holds the most significance.

As a progressive photographer, I endeavor to showcase real diversity through deliberate, passionate acts of love. Join me in reshaping the narrative of weddings, where individuality reigns supreme, and old-fashioned conventions make way for the new ultra-modern standard. Whether you choose a warehouse over a church or elope to the other side of the world, your story is valid, and I'm here to capture it authentically.

Join me in redefining what a wedding day is about.

Another touching moment was during a wedding in New York City. The bride had lost her father shortly before the wedding, and her brother stepped in to walk her down the aisle. As they reached the altar, the bride and her brother shared a private, tearful embrace. Capturing this moment was incredibly moving, and it served as a poignant reminder of the deep emotional connections that weddings celebrate.

One of the most memorable weddings I’ve photographed was a destination wedding in the heart of Tuscany. The couple, who shared a deep love for Italian culture, chose a historic villa surrounded by vineyards as their venue. Despite a sudden summer storm, the wedding unfolded with an air of romance and resilience. The rain added a magical touch to the photographs, creating reflections and textures that enhanced the beauty of the day. This experience reinforced my belief that sometimes, the most unexpected elements can result in the most breathtaking images.

Personal Stories

I’ve always been drawn to stories and the emotions that define our lives. Weddings are one of the most significant milestones in a person’s life, filled with raw, genuine emotion. Capturing these moments and turning them into lasting memories is a privilege that deeply fulfills me.

What inspired you to become a wedding photographer?

Preparation is key. I start by getting to know the couple and understanding their vision and preferences. On the wedding day, I blend into the background, capturing candid moments while also guiding the couple through key portraits. My goal is to create a stress-free environment where they can be themselves, allowing me to capture their true essence.

How do you approach a wedding day?

I believe it’s my ability to connect with my clients on a personal level and my commitment to capturing their unique story with authenticity and artistry. Each wedding is a new canvas, and I strive to create images that are not only beautiful but also deeply meaningful.

By sharing these insights into my journey, philosophy, and personal experiences, I hope to build a deeper connection with potential clients. My dedication to capturing the beauty and emotion of weddings ensures that every couple receives a collection of images they will treasure for a lifetime.
