AN ADELAIDE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

September 18, 2022

Wet and windy are two things you’re not really looking for on your wedding day, but for Jess and Shaun it didn’t matter. The inside/outside debate had been raging all day, ultimately they decided to throw caution to the wind (literally) and roll the dice with the soggy bottom lawns at Mt Lofty House. In […]

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 […]

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 […]

Golding winery wedding

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 […]

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 […]

To be honest, before heading up to Longview for this wedding my experience of the haka had been limited to watching the All Blacks intimidate the hell out of whoever they were about to destroy (actually, not entirely true, I saw the Tall Blacks play Team USA at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and they […]

  If I was writing a manual on how to do a wedding I’d use Kat and Steve’s day as my blueprint. Step 1 – find a property, ideally in the hills and surrounded by gum trees Step 2 – Build a dance floor from wooden crates and erect a marquee (it helps if the groom […]

***MORE PHOTOS BELOW *** Q: What happens when you combine The Big Day Out with a time honoured tradition where rings are exchanged and promises made? A: Chloe and Andy’s wedding. 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. […]
