AN ADELAIDE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

January 27, 2020

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 […]

I used to always put together an end of year slideshow, it was a great way of distilling 12 months of hard work into a few minutes of easily sharable content (doesn’t sounds so romantic when you put it like that). The last couple of years I never got around to it, but to round […]

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 […]

The top floor of a fancy hotel is always a great place to start a wedding day. Simon and the guys were getting ready in a swanky suite of the Intercontinental on the same day the cricket was in town and theirs was one of the few rooms without security by the door. After everyone […]

  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 […]

Golding winery wedding

          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. […]

FILED IN: Awards, Best Of, Wedding

I stirred at around 8:30 this morning and my mind was hazy. I glanced over at my phone and it had blown up. Turns out it was just some messages about a dinner on Sunday and nothing to do with photography, but still, pretty exciting. Five hours earlier I was shovelling a yiros into my […]
