Behind The Brand

How would you describe your photography style?

I think my style is best described as documentary with an editorial feel. I love to create cinematic inspired images, it’s about wide angles with lots guest layering the images to tell the whole story – to tight frames to capture emotion.

 

What is it that makes an image magical?

For me it would be the way the light falls across the frame, as well as instantly having a memory wave over me when I view image – an emotion being evoked and sometimes being able to hear the conversion or an infectious laugh that was happening at the time.

 

What advice would you give to the camera-shy couple?

I always find camera shy clients are so surprised with how relaxed they feel on the day. It’s so important to find a photographer you feel comfortable with – have regular catch ups and not make your wedding feel like one big photoshoot. Most of the day can be shot in a journalistic way and direction can always be giving when needed, sometimes a few glasses of bubbles help with those nerves as well.

 

Do you travel interstate or internationally?

Absolutely, I’m so fortunate to live in such a beautiful location. So far my job has taking me to Bali, Paris, Toulouse and Majorca. It’s so inspiring to shoot in new locations and most of all, to absorb different cultures wedding traditions.

 

As an estimate, how long does your editing process take?

I always supply a preview a few days after the wedding to give clients a feel for what’s to come. I usually spend around a week editing a wedding, it’s incredibly important to me to be happy with my attention to detail before I send anything off.  My turn around time is 4 – 6 weeks.

 

Describe a magical moment from a wedding you’ve photographed…

It was definitely my brother and his wife taking a leap of faith and asking me to document their wedding, even though I had no experience photographing weddings whatsoever. It was that day when I learnt how incredibly full you can feel as an artist, by capturing one of those most special days in a couples and their families lives.
