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 […]

When I first met Nicole and Cam they told me how much they loved sunsets. I mean, everyone loves sunsets, but these guys LOVE sunsets and it was important to them to get some sweet shots of the sun saying goodnight to their wedding. Honestly, I was a bit like “well, a fair bit of […]

  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 […]

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.

  With nearly 200 weddings under my belt it’s not often I come across something I’ve not seen before, but Louise and Ash executed a reception idea that was totally new and super awesome. Fairy lights overhead are pretty commonplace, and rightly so, they look freakin’ awesome and really make the photos sing, but the […]

***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. […]

  Sometimes great photos are meticulously planned and sometimes they just happen. If I’m shooting at a new venue I’ll generally do some location scouting to get an idea of what I’m in for but as a rule I don’t like to be too rigid with my planning as a scene can look totally different […]
