2017 AIPP South Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year

Extraordinary Photos...

...FOR ORDINARY PEOPLE

Ahhhh weddings...

You spend months (if not years) planning this day, you’ve shopped for expensive dresses, weighed up a million venues and spent way too long figuring out your bonbonniere. At some stage you’ll probably be wondering what it’s all for, why didn’t we just elope and save ourselves a lot of hassle and a bunch of cash?

But then the wedding day comes, and everyone you love is in the same place at the same time. You’re looking better than you have in your whole life and feeling on top of the world. You get to make promises to the person you love more than anything and then kick on to an incredible party. There are emotions flying around in all directions, love, laughter, tears and everything in between.

And then it’s over. Just like that. You wake up the next morning and you’re back in the real world (kind of, there’s probably a honeymoon still to come), an ordinary person who just experienced something extraordinary, hoping that your photographer's memory cards are full of all the moments, big and small, that made the day so incredible.

ABOUT

MEET SIMON

I’ve been shooting weddings In ADELAIDE and around the world for more than ten years now. over that time I’ve learned a lot about what makes an important photo.

I approach every wedding with the mindset of how will these guys want to remember their wedding in twenty years TIME rather than is this going to do well on Instagram TOMORROW

ABOUT

Is this an important photo? The answer is in the small stuff, the sneaky smile from your maid of honour when your dress goes on, the teardrop rolling down your father’s cheek as the ring goes on your finger, the warm embrace from a frail grandparent right after the ceremony. These are the photos I spend all day looking for and this is why I shoot weddings, to create a wildly comprehensive collection of images that tells the story of you and your tribe. Being part of a day with so much going on allows me to blend in with guests and capture so many important moments. 

Combining these candid moments with the more structured parts of the day - portraits of the two of you alone, together and with your bridal party, family photos, first dance etc - results in a collection of extraordinary images that will be shared through your family for generations to come. And you’ll also have plenty of sweet shots for Instagram.

Collections begin at $3,450. I’ve got a very simple price list I would love to send you so please use the contact form at the bottom of the page to get in touch. From there we can arrange a time to have a chat at my home studio or over Skype.

GEMMA & JOSH

We both wanted a laid back vibe to our wedding, and it was important to us to find a photographer whose photos looked natural, and artistic, as opposed to the usual forced and staged photos and you were everything we could have hoped for in a photographer and more. Not only was your easy.going attitude exactly what we had hoped for, but your work exceeded our expectations. Even though we did not know you before we felt completely at ease with you and felt like we were hanging out with someone we had known for years! The time spent taking photos at the various locations was a lot fun and is an endearing memory from the day.

we'd known for years!"
