Wye River General Store, The Great Ocean Road

Baie Wines & One Day Estate

Aylin & Dan flew over from San Francisco to host a beautifully rustic & rural wedding at the two best venues on the Bellarine Peninsula. 

Lauren & Marc

Laurens Hall, North Melbourne

A big fun industrial Greek wedding at the fabulous Laurens Hall. Elena and Dave put on a fantastic party featuring a golf cart entrance, food trucks and traditional Greek dancing/plate smashing!

Courtney & Chris

Main Ridge, Victoria

A stunning hand crafted country wedding at Chris's family home down in Main Ridge on the Mornington Peninsula.

Ash & Ben    {feature coming soon}

British Consulate & Middle Brighton Baths

These boys held an extravaganza over two days: an intimate ceremony at the British Consulate and then a big shindig to celebrate with their firends at the fantastic Baths in Brighton.

LINDA & NATHAN

Fitzroy Gardens & Trunk

Bah gawd I love these guys! Such a fun day with a little bit of everything; dancing, confetti, firemen and a runaway veil.
Defs worth a look.

Kelvin & Mat    {feature coming soon}

Rupert on Rupert, Fitzroy

Kelvin and Mat eloped to Canada the previous year but they wanted to throw a party to celebrate with their friends and family back in Aus. This was a super stylish reception at the uber cool Rupert on Rupert.

 

Bridget & matt    {featured on ivory tribe}

The Barn, Wallington

An absolute barnstormer! (geddit, barn-stormer... never mind) This was a fab DIY rustic barn wedding of two fantastic humans who did not stop smiling all day.

ZOE & ANDREW    {feature coming soon}

Stones of the Yarra Valley

The legends known as Zoe & Andrew threw a big, elegant, Jewish wedding at Stones of the Yarra Valley.: Not many brides ditch the heels to get stuck into a bit of extreme sports on their wedding day like these two! 

NORMAL GUY. TWO KIDS. ONE WIFE. takes photos.

To me, photography is the best kind of storytelling.  It’s how I like to look back on some of life’s best bits. 

In terms of style, you can safely group me under the ‘fly on the wall’ doco-style photographer.  I prefer to capture you guys just being yourselves. 
Think less posing and more documenting things visually.

As for me, I'm just a normal dude with a love of breakfast foods, a decent pale ale and chocolate milkshakes. The other loves in my life - Archie, my little boy, my little girl Maggie and CJ, my beautiful wife. They're the biggest part of my story so far.  And when I’m not clicking buttons on my cameras, I’m usually out trekking through the woods around the Peninsula on imaginary bear hunts with Arch.

So, that’s a little about me.  I'd love to hear more about you and how you’re planning to ring in your big day or mark time with your family.

If you like what you’ve seen around here and think we’d make a good team, then let's have a chat and see if I'm the one for you. No pressure. Feel free to get in touch and we can take it from there.

Families

Photographing Archie from day dot has been something I’ve really enjoyed about being his dad. I’ll sit for hours and trawl back through images of him over the last two incredible years.  Some make me laugh, others turn me into a big softy.  And yes, like everyone says, they change by the minute.  The importance of documenting those real moments in his life, whether we’re stomping through bush looking for koalas or just hanging around home drinking ‘chocolate teas’, resonates with me so much more now. 

I’m really fortunate to be able to document similar moments for other families that hopefully they too can share, look back on and feel the ole’ ticker beating a little harder. 

Here’s a little selection of my family photography.
