AN ADELAIDE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

February 11, 2018

The top floor of a fancy hotel is always a great place to start a wedding day. Simon and the guys were getting ready in a swanky suite of the Intercontinental on the same day the cricket was in town and theirs was one of the few rooms without security by the door. After everyone […]

  I’ve been sitting on this blog post for way too long. During wedding season life is pretty hectic and I find it tough to squeeze blogging into the mix, but once the offseason gets underway sometime in May I find myself with more time up my sleeve. Then once the NBA playoffs finish up in […]

Sometimes a wedding sounds too good to be true. When Connie and Luke told me of their plans to get married in Innes National Park, on the south-west tip of the Yorke Peninsula, I could barely contain my excitement. I absolutely love every country wedding, the chance to see new places, spend a night or […]

Mount Lofty House is not only one of Adelaide’s most picturesque wedding venues, it’s also one of the most versatile. The onsite accommodation means the guys can get ready in one place, the girls in another, then the ceremony is held with the Picadilly Valley as a backdrop and the reception is just 50 metres […]

          Poppy and Shaun have all kinds of things in common. They’re both super laid back, sporty, and tall –  she’s literally a tall Poppy. They also have this beautiful connection and comfort level around one another, it’s super cheesy but when you spend a bit of time with them legitimately feels […]

For whatever reason, it hardly ever rains at the wrong time on a wedding day. Maybe it’s because 95% of my weddings are in the driest state of the driest continent on earth, actually, that’s almost certainly the reason, but even when rain is forecast it always seems to dodge my weddings when it needs to. […]

FILED IN: Awards, Best Of, Wedding

I stirred at around 8:30 this morning and my mind was hazy. I glanced over at my phone and it had blown up. Turns out it was just some messages about a dinner on Sunday and nothing to do with photography, but still, pretty exciting. Five hours earlier I was shovelling a yiros into my […]

When Emma got in touch about her wedding I got pretty excited for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I get excited about basically every wedding enquiry I get (even after 8 years of doing this, pathetic, I know). Secondly, this one was a Mt Gambier wedding which meant a trip to the country, a nice long drive […]

I’ve got a soft spot for back yard weddings. I got married in my own back yard and wouldn’t have it any other way – there’s a certain intimacy when you welcome people into your home that is hard to match elsewhere. Likewise, I’ve also got a soft spot for Belair National Park. It’s where […]

  It’s not every day you get to shoot a wedding on a movie set, but that’s exactly what Brooklyn Farm brings to the table. Roughly 10 years ago Scott Hicks (best known as the director and screenwriter of the Oscar-winning Shine) made a movie starring Hollywood heartthrob Clive Owen in little old South Australia […]
