How did you get into wedding photography?

I’m not sure if I found weddings or they found me! My first job was for a friend I went to school with, he knew I was a keen landscape photographer and asked if I felt comfortable shooting his wedding – “sure, no problem” I said! Up until this point I hadn’t even been a guest at a wedding and I was completely unfamiliar with what happens on the day. They had asked me to shoot only the ceremony but I stayed a little longer and built a little portfolio I was really proud of. From that first wedding wedding I setup a simple website and I was lucky enough to get 2-3 bookings the following year. Things were initially quiet but after a couple of years I rocketed up to 54 weddings in a single year.

Before I was a wedding photographer I had loads of different jobs, from Web Developer to Graphic Designer. I’ve never stuck at anything until photography came along – I’ve been shooting as a full time professional for just over 4 years now and I truly feel blessed that I’ve landed a career which I deeply love working at.

What really gets you emotional when you’re shooting a wedding?

Throughout the duration of any wedding there’s little glimpses of subtle moments between people that I love – I hunt them down and document it for my couples (and for people that haven’t been born yet too). Since having children of my own my outlook has change a little and I’m definitely drawn more towards moments that I would adore as a parent; like the time Rhea was having her make-up done, and her son sat on her lap cuddling her the entire time. To be in that space and at that time really felt like a wonderful privileged to witness, share and document. I know that when my couples look back it’s these honest legitimate moments that will resonate with them and they’ll hold closest to their hearts.

How do you put a couple at ease before and during their big day?

Before the big day arrives we’ll always catch up to go over their timings and chat through things that are particularly important. I love this part of the process as it’s a great chance for us to get familiar with each other and gives my couple the opportunity to ask as many questions as they like. I encourage my couples to get in contact as much as they like – whether it’s photography questions or just seeking advice on any other aspect of their wedding I love to be able to help them out as much as possible.

What is it about being a wedding photographer you love?

There’s heaps of things I love about being a wedding photographer. I love being self employed and in control of my own destiny, and I love meeting new people every weekend and seeing them at their best. I also love that I have a career working in the creative arts which I’ve longed for, but most of all I love that my work makes people happy and puts a smile on their face. I’ve found weddings to be highly rewarding in this way.

What is it about being a wedding photographer that you don’t love so much?

The hours can be a little unsociable and it’s hard to wave goodbye to my family if I’m working away for a few days. During the peak of wedding season (which is usually around August) I can be away every weekend from Thursday until Sunday – but I make up for it by being at home for the rest of the week.

What is your favourite part of the day?

The ceremony is always my favourite part of the day. Emotions are generally running high and it’s exciting to be able to capture all range of reactions from laughs to cries. It’s also the part of the day I most look forward to editing too.

What tips would you give a couple on choosing a wedding photographer?

You’re going to be with this person for a long time on this very important day so it’s super important that you feel relaxed around them. Having a good rapport with your photographer will also create more relaxed moments which ultimately result in amazing photography. Here’s 3 questions I think every couple should ask their photographer:

– We want for our story to be told beautifully and honestly – what’s the best way we can make this happen?

– What is the most important thing to ensure awesome photos? (answer, pick a photographer who you really connect with on a personal level)

– What happens if your camera breaks on the day? (answer, I bring backup and backup for my backups!)

Why do you think couples choose you?

I think that my couples love my style of creative documentary photography and after our initial consultation they’ll also know that I’ll do everything possible to give them the best photos imaginable. I’m a very relaxed person to be around and I don’t get flustered, I think this helps because weddings can be stressful events.

Genuine, passionate, creative, and not afraid to step outside of the box of traditional wedding photography.

What are you looking forward to and why?

I’m really looking forward to all the amazing weddings I have booked for 2017 and 2018, and meeting the new people and making friends along the way. I’m also looking forward to pushing my wedding photography even further and wow my couples with my imagery.
