So, how do I shoot weddings?
I have a constant fascination with people. How they interact with each other and what they are truly like in the real sense of the word.
When shooting weddings, it’s all about the couple, family, friends and being welcomed into a world that I wouldn’t otherwise be exposed to.
To me, wedding photography is a way to bring people back to a particular moment and feeling in time. It’s about representing your wedding as honestly as possible and capturing as many moments and interactions as I can for you. I want to bring the viewer into these moments and scenes to make them feel like they are there taking this journey with you.
I want to get to the core of the day, the emotions, the feelings, the environment and the mood. Let me represent who you are, what’s important to you through imagery that you will look upon for years to come. Let me be a witness. Let me tell your story.
Although I’m happy to photograph family formals, if you’re looking at a day that also involves a portrait session, I urge you to consider shooting that session on another day either before or after your wedding. This would allow us to take the time to create images that represent who you are without having the thought of rushing back to your guests in the back of your mind. Couples that have chosen to do this have been more relaxed on their wedding day and during their portrait session which, as a result, has left them with images and experiences they will cherish forever.
That said I’m more than happy to set aside part of the day for a more structured portrait session. Weddings are not about the photographer, they are about people. It’s my aim to make sure that my services and products reflect the needs and wants of my clients.

– Photographer –
I like to photograph stuff. It’s my raison d’être.

I prefer it though, if what I’m taking photos of is something alive. Even better, if it’s people – people and their stories. That’s when I am in my element.
Um well, I guess if I expect you to allow me to tell your story, I should tell you a little about mine.
I moved to Melbourne, Australia as a little 2 year old. I’m still little. Discovered The Beatles. Discovered photography, art, music, dance. My first SLR camera belonged to my Grandfather and was given to me by my mother. She must have been onto something!
I learnt how to shoot the best way. On film, by trial and error, fully manual, knee-deep in darkroom chemicals.Fell in love with moving image, spent my later high school years bugging my teachers to buy an edit suite (digital video) for the school. I finally wore them down! Taught myself how to use it, taught the teacher how to use it and then, the students. Decided I had to be a video editor.
So I Studied Screen, Video Production at RMIT. Learnt how to tell a story. Fell in love with lighting (the beginning of a never-ending love affair). Graduated on a high. Worked as a video editor. Discovered the truth that is Ella Fitzgerald.
When I bought my very first DSLR camera my world changed: I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down.I discovered that you can tell stories with still images as well. It’s sheer magic to me.
Career-wise video-editing shifted into photography. And here we are.
