Bride and Groom at Templewood House for a sunset wedding photo.

Cute moments, an incredible collection of fine wines and an overflowing of joy in every direction you looked is the way I would describe Kirby and Ash’s wedding at Templewood House. It was clear that a lot of effort went into putting this day together, and boy oh boy did it pay off. They were […]

Mariafe Artacho del Solar wedding photo with husband Jack Curtin at Glenelg Beach in Adelaide

When Mariafe and Jack told me of their plans to marry at 2pm, overlooking the ocean, in a shade-free park in the middle of summer I was nervous. There were a lot of factors working against me, shadows, squinting, heat, sweat, you name it. In hindsight I was a fool to question it – the […]

For most cities in the world, you’d need to drive for a while to find a gorgeous field for some photos, perhaps you would head up into the hinterland, or down to the coast somewhere. Not Adelaide. Right in heart of the city, in the CBD itself, exists a secret spot with lush native grasses, […]

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 […]

I hate to say it, but you could make a pretty good case that the rest of the world does weddings better than we do. Whether it’s a French wedding that typically kicks on until the sun comes up the next morning or a Lebanese wedding that has the most insane drumming to get the […]

Adam’s first love was not Bec. It was Eleanor, his 1970 XW Ford Falcon. When he proposed he said there’s one condition about the wedding – “that I get to finish doing up my car so she can be in it!!” True to his word Eleanor was finished for the wedding and Adam and boys […]

Way back on Halloween last year I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding that was a bit different (which I love). I mention Halloween not because it just happened to be on that day but because the whole day had a very halloweeny theme (black cat handbags for the girls, black wedding cake with […]

Al Ru Farm Wedding

I first encountered Jessica and Mitchell at the wedding of Jessica’s cousin Stuart many years ago. One of my enduring memories of that wedding was two guys executing the most perfect Gangnam Style dance I’d ever seen (I told you it was many years ago – truth be told I miss wedding dance floor Gangnam, […]

nanna on the dance floor, mt lofty house wedding, fun adelaide wedding, quirky wedding photo

It’s true. I don’t always remember what a couple looks like between the time of our first meeting and our second meeting which is often 12 months later, particularly when our first meeting is done over Skype. Such was the case with Olivia and Francis. For many months those names were staring down at me from […]

Any business book will tell you that to stand out from the crowd you need to be doing something different. Zig when everyone else zags. To that end, when the rest of the world was busy putting together their summary of 2014 at the appropriate time (ie the last few days of the year) I […]
