MY STYLE

 

My work is up close, intimate and personal, its the only way to roll to capture whats really important about a wedding which is the people and relationships

People often comment my photography captures the energy and emotion of people. Thats no accident. With over 15 years working for Australia’s top newspapers  The Age and Sydney Morning Herald I learn’t a thing or two about photographing people, from all walks of life capturing their stories, not unlike wedding couples. I learnt about working quickly and being adaptable, when to stand back and when to take control, all vital skills to a professional wedding photographer. My work is primarily candid and photojournalistic but when it comes time for some posed shots I bring that photojournalistic sensibility there too. I don’t treat you like a model because that not who you are and even if you are

My work is authentic. It focuses on you and who you are. I want you to look back on your wedding photography in 20 years time and feel the love of that day and relationships with the family and friends who made you who you are.
