Documenting love...


Not your typical wedding photographer. 



As demand grew organically and unexpectedly for me to capture a wedding, a couple’s love, or engagement or even elopement with just a handful of people standing by, I grew invested in this work and decided to offer it formally as a photographic service, for select weddings each year. 

My take on your day, is with full dedication to not miss a moment, a look, a candid commentary... all with the promise of my ‘eye’ on your day. Whether it be a large wedding or party, or a small cosy celebration, a wild elopement, or an intimate couple session, I will deliver with expertise, artfulness and unique visual style your story spotlighting your relationship with the one you love. 

Most wedding and couple photographer’s take on a large number of clients, however with my work across various genres and fields, I have chosen to take on a handful each year to promise my best work and bespoke style. With much of my work held in the analogue format, I also bring to your day two approaches ︎the classic style of digital photography, and the nostalgic, organic style of film analogue. I will shoot your day / session in equal portions of both formats and provide you with a varied, narrative-filled, art inspired yet raw, timeless gallery of images special to you. 

Please get in touch to discuss your story, wedding or event, and how I can assist bring that essence of love to the forefront of your photography. I am currently based in Melbourne, Australia and available for work worldwide (surprise me!)

︎ Elopement (for pricing, please enquire)
The idea of whisking away just the two of you, a celebrant, and perhaps a few others close to you is so dreamy and thoroughly sentimental. Documenting such intimacy, intense desire and connection, and capturing it all for your private collection (or to share with others who were not there) very much sings to my tune. Increasingly popular in these modern times where public gatherings and restrictions are in place (covid19), but love does not wait...
