About This Vendor

Great wedding photos. No bullshit.

I photograph weddings and weddings only. I’m at 300+ and counting, 9 years in and just hitting my stride. I mostly shoot Newcastle & Hunter Valley weddings, but if you’re partying down anywhere in Australia or NZ I’d love to join you. I offer one simple package that includes all-day coverage. Full details and a stack more photos are available on my website.

Stuff that’s important to me :

• Supporting marriage equality
• Encouraging couples to do what they want rather than following tradition for tradition’s sake
• Delivering images & albums free of watermarks / logos
• Being upfront with my pricing
• Sharing complete wedding galleries before booking
• Making sure you get your photos in a reasonable time (6-8 weeks)
• Ensuring I talk to brides and grooms. The myth that ‘it’s all about the bride’ drives me insane.
• Referring other vendors based on merit (my recommendations are genuine, not ads)
• Using only the best in gear, backups + insurance

  • Favourite place in the world? It sounds obvious, but home - Newcastle. It's big enough but still small enough. Every time we find somewhere new that we love, we still decide that we'd rather live here.
  • Best wedding-related tip? Don’t follow tradition for the sake of following tradition. Figure out what’s important to you and run with that.
  • Three words that describe you? Relaxed, genuine and lanky.
  • Fav thing about your job? The moments just after the ceremony, when it’s an all out hug-fest. You can see the joy on people’s faces - it’s impossible not to get caught up in the excitement.
  • #1 dance-floor song request If you don't play the remixed version of Jagged Edge's 'Let's get Married', what are you even having a wedding for?
