About

I am a professional wedding, elopement and family portrait photographer based in Tugun on the Gold Coast of Australia. Originally from New Zealand, I’ve been shooting weddings throughout England and mainland Europe for the past 12 years and have now emigrated to the east coast of Australia to live with my wife and daughter. I'm a beach bum at heart, so having the opportunity to live near and work on and around the beach is my idea of supreme job satisfaction.

The wedding industry has changed a lot over the last 10 years with elopements, smaller boutique weddings and pop up weddings becoming increasingly popular. I now offer 3 packages that cater specifically for this style so if you’re planning on a smaller wedding please check out my pricing page.

The most important aspect of my work is creating an atmosphere where my clients feel relaxed and comfortable with myself and the photographic process. My partners in crime in achieving this goal are natural light and stunning outdoor locations. With a strong emphasis on highlighting the Architectural beauty and simplicity of nature, I'm always exploring the coastline and beaches looking for new locations for my wedding and family portrait work.

My mission is simple. To continually evolve & refine my creative approach to the way I shoot families and weddings, whilst providing an affordable service, managed with integrity. I am now focused on shooting weddings & elopements throughout Australia, and destination weddings in New Zealand, Fiji, The Cook Islands, Indonesia and other locations worldwide. 

I look forward to meeting you soon.
