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. This home is like a maze and I often lose her inside of it (she’s small so you can understand). If you ask Daniela, it should be filled with kids and dogs (Labradors please) very shortly though, so family life is on the horizon for us both! 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!
I am always laughing, I think I have a problem! I like to look at everything in a positive light, which believe it or not, sometimes annoys people. I guess I could tell you that I love travel, and I 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 am the kind of guy who watches the same movie 25 times before starting a new movie. I live in the gym, and am very passionate about living a healthy (well, 80% of the time) lifestyle. More than anything though, is my love for the beach. I can always be found down at the beach soaking up the rays and hitting the surf.
I have been photographing weddings and couples, out on my own now for just over a year! 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! Couples who are a bit crazy and don’t take life too seriously. Couples who are always up for a good time, and down for a bit of an adventure! I love people, what can I say? 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 (I will pay for you, we won’t steal it) or beer, then let’s start chatting about your big day!
As a rule of thumb I service Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Sydney, Illawarra, and can take about 4-5 destination weddings per year. If you want me at your wedding though, get in touch, I am always happy to travel if possible! I have packages to suit everyone starting from $3,000. I can totally customise packages, so if we don’t fit your budget but you really want to work with me, hit me up and we can work something out!
- 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.
