A selection of awesome weddings from the past year...


 

Gill & Mani

Max's Restaurant Red Hill Estate, Mornington Peninsula

Two of the sweetest people I have met had a beautifully intimate wedding at the fabulous Max's Restaurant in Red Hill. A global affair unifying Ireland and India in Australia!

Lauren & Marc

Royal Botanic Gardens & Jardin Tan

All class here; Marc and Lauren started off with a first look on their rooftop overlooking Melbourne, had a beautiful ceremony in the Botanic gardens and celebrated with a fantastic reception at Jardin Tan.

Simone & Adryll

Stillwater at Crittenden Estate, Mornington Peninsula

Travelling all the way from Singapore to be married down here on the Mornington Peninsula, these two living legends were just a delight and put on a sensational wedding too!

Simon & Avital

Country Women's Association & Studio 3 @ Crown Casino

A truly spectacular reception at Crown Casino. I love Jewish weddings; they're full of culture, family and some fantastic traditional dancing!

ASHLEA & RYAN

Polperro Wines & The Epicurean Red Hill

A real hootenanny of a wedding set in gorgeous surrounds down here in Red Hill followed by one of the most pumping dance floors I've ever set foot on!

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.

Ash & Ben

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 at the fantastic Baths in Brighton.

Andrea & Craig

The Old Treasury Building & Cutler & Co.

It really was a pleasure to meet these two and their adorable little humans. Twas beautiful wedding packed full of all the feels... and a photobomb by a bus-load of Iranian tourists!

 

Bridget & matt

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.

Georgia & Noah

Melbourne City elopement

A beautifully simple, intimate, and relaxed elopement followed by a casual stroll through the city. We even stopped for a coffee at their favourite cafe!

HUSBAND. FATHER. Photographer.

 

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.

I always find the real things tell the best story.

As for my story, 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 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, no hurry. 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.
