AN ADELAIDE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

  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 […]

          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.

It started like any other wedding, a group of guys kicking back acting way too relaxed for such a big occasion. A bunch of girls […]

      When I arrived at Lauren and Bo’s house in Woodville to take photos of the guys getting ready I felt like I had arrived at a villa in Bali. Their backyard had all sorts of relaxed vibes, a sweet pool and exotic plant life that transported you to another time and place. […]

  Sometimes great photos are meticulously planned and sometimes they just happen. If I’m shooting at a new venue I’ll generally do some location scouting to get an idea of what I’m in for but as a rule I don’t like to be too rigid with my planning as a scene can look totally different […]

Groom’s Mum via Facebook: “Hi Simon, Daniel’s mum from Friday’s wedding, thank u for the wonderful photo of my parents dancing, could’ve knocked me over with a feather seeing that, haven’t seen dad up like that in a very long time.” Me: “Hi Tracey, that was a pretty magical moment watching your parents dance, especially […]

We started the day, like all good weddings should, with a game of beach cricket and a swim in the ocean. The problem was it was super windy and actually pretty chilly, a lot colder than we were expecting when we put the schedule together. Fortunately Tim and his men were up for anything and […]
