About This Vendor
Hey, I’m James, Hunter Valley Wedding Photographer based on the beautiful Central Coast. My wife Daniela and I recently started this new chapter, having moved here from the beaches of Southern Sydney. We live together in our beautiful home, which is the perfect setting for NERF war games coincidentally. Life is crazy and it’s about to get crazier as we welcome our first child into the world in May 2020, so Dad life here I come! Family is and always will be a very important aspect of both our personal and professional lives. That’s why we absolutely love being tasked with capturing the biggest day in your life as a new family!
No joke, I’m always laughing, I think I have a problem! I like to look at everything in a positive light, which believe it or not, sometimes pisses people off. I guess I could tell you that I love to travel and am a massive foodie, but let’s be honest…who doesn’t, and who isn’t? So let’s get a bit more personal. I’m the kind of guy who watches the same movie 5 times before starting a new one. I used to travel the country playing in a band. But more than anything though, is my love for nature. A lot of the money I make through this business is donated back to the environment. I can almost always be found down at the beach soaking up the rays and catching some waves.
Family is a major part of my life. I have been photographing weddings under my own business now for about 2 years, but photographing couples for over 5! Why do I love this job so much? Why not! I spend all my time with sick couples who are crazy in love, couples just like you! I love people, it’s like, my thing. I’m weird, outgoing, and a bit crazy. If that sounds like your kettle of fish, and you would be up for a free coffee (you’re ok with doing a runner? Jokes, I’ll pay) or beer, then let’s start chatting about your big day!
My main area of service is of course Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Central Coast and Sydney, but I travel all over the country and world if requested. I have packages to suit everyone, with an average couple spending approx $3,800, but all weddings can be tailored to suit the individual needs of your big day!
- Three things you'd take to a deserted island? I would certainly have to take my surfboard (please tell me this island has solid waves!), tequila for obvious reasons, and my wife, because I need someone to stop me from doing silly things!
- Best wedding-related tip? Just before the sun sets, take 15 minutes with your partner and get outside. This is a great opportunity for beautiful sunset photos, but also serves as a chance to slow things down, and take in what has happened throughout the day. It gives you a little bit of time away from the madness, and with just your partner. It is really a special moment between you two!
- Favourite place in the world? Port Macquarie! Weird right? It's actually where I took my wife on our first ever getaway as a couple, and where I realised I loved her. Will always be special to me!
- #1 dance-floor song request Toto - Africa...all other requests are inferior and will dance battle you on the floor to prove it.
