NEWCASTLE & HUNTER VALLEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SINCE 2010

Your wedding is a day to celebrate your lives together. It's not about taking photos. You focus on having the time of your life, and I will capture it seamlessly along the way.

I understand what makes your wedding unique and document that, with over 500 weddings of experience. I shoot all weddings - any style, size, culture or gender.

Guests often ask if I'm a friend of the couple, because of the way I put people at ease. I work quickly, with silent cameras. No repeating moments or fake laughs - live your day and I will be ready. I'm based in Newcastle, but travel anywhere you need.

THE MOMENTS MAN

A nickname gifted to me by a celebrant - I'm always in the right place at the right time. I have a knack for blending in and capturing the moments that others miss.

I'M READY FOR ANYTHING

With 13+ years of experience, weddings are my natural environment. I educate myself on every technicality, I spend on the best equipment. I edit every image to the same standard as those you see here.

ABOVE AND BEYOND

Time is the most valuable currency at a wedding, so I make use of every minute. I don't take breaks or film videos for my socials. I dry your bouquet, pin your boutonniere, drive you around, fetch you a drink and anything else that needs doing. Images are backed up from the moment of capture. I hold insurance, I bring backups, my pricing is upfront. My couples always get more than they pay for.

TIMELESS TONES

My editing style is consistent - no weird blur or crooked horizons. Trends come and go, but natural colours remain gorgeous for decades to come. I have images in my portfolio from as far back as 2012, which blend seamlessly with those from today.
