About This Vendor

I’m 27. I shot my first wedding in 2010, and I’ve been full time since 2012. I didn’t grow up with dreams of being a wedding photographer, but nowadays I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love my job, living in Newcastle and being married to Liv.

Other loves include: cupcake espresso, Arrested Development, travel, Spotify, Mexican food, Breaking Bad, Melbourne, a good bow tie. I started out shooting bits and pieces of everything, but quickly realised that weddings were what I really loved – now, that’s all that I do. It’s awesome seeing how each couple makes their day their own.

I try to keep my photography as simple as possible – clean, colourful & honest. My aim is to stay out of the way and let things take their own course. Not taking things too seriously is the best way for me to get real emotions, rather than tightly controlled poses.

Pricing structure: I have one package only – a portrait shoot, full day wedding coverage and the digital files for $4000. More details on my website, including options for a second photographer and album if you like.
