After my Mum showed my first girlfriend a photo of toddler-me naked in the bath, I might have had a problem with photos…
Quite the opposite though, I love them, and truly, truly realise how important they are. Even that one. Having spent years as a creative stuck in a technically-minded body, when I finally found photography, suddenly I had a way to create using technical skills, and I was addicted.

I’ve been a wedding photographer for nearly a decade now and I’m just hitting my stride. On your wedding day, I’m there for you. I’m not just going to shoot your wedding, I’m going to capture the emotion, the moments, the beautiful little things that are happening everywhere, all day. That’s photojournalism, capturing what is actually happening, as opposed to creating things to capture. That’s the reason I stay into the evening, there’s still wedding happening! You deserve that. You deserve an honest, documentary record of your day that shows how it felt as well as how it looked.
Beautiful, honest images, truthfully showing your loved ones enjoying your day.

I fell into weddings accidentally and never left. Now, it’s everything to me. Our stories need to be told, our emotions remembered, our family histories created and recorded. It’s a bit of a mission for me. I am all about making sure your story is told.

I’m unbelievably lucky to share this life with my wife Nicole, the most compassionate and patient person I ever met, and our two daughters, Erin and Phoebe.
I like, among other things, Country and Rock music, savoury snacks, Game of Thrones, sci-fi, live music, bbqs and beers with friends, and seaside towns.
