AN ADELAIDE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

April 1, 2022

The last time I posted a wedding on this blog we were in a pre-covid world. Instagram is an incredible way to share work, but it’s also important to show how a wedding photography collection comes together in the long-form (having said that, these photos make up less than 10% of the whole collection, you […]

How long do we need for family photos at my wedding, and how do we organise it to make sure things run smoothly? Unlike the rest of the day, family photos don’t have a lot of artistic merit. What they do have is a tremendous amount of historical significance and as a result, they are […]

A wedding day timeline is something a lot of couples have questions about. How long do we need for photos? What time do hair and makeup have to be finished? Will we get to have canapes with our guests after the wedding or do we need all that time for photos? Coming up with a […]

If you’re a dog lover and you want your fur babies on board at your wedding you need to make sure your venue is on board. BJ and CJ really love their dogs and fortunately, Howard Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills is one such venue. They love their dogs so much that CJ surprised BJ […]

Sometimes everything comes together just right. The venue (Brooklyn Farm is next level awesome), the weather, the couple, the guests and all the other little things just fall into place. I’m sure Sasha and Brett (but mostly Sasha!) would have a slightly different take on in, with all the planning, organising, rushing around and ensuring […]

  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 […]
