Where are you based?
I am based out of Sydney, Australia servicing all areas.
Do you travel for weddings?
Of course! I absolutely love to travel abroad for my couples.
How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as elegant wedding photography with a fashion-editorial edge.
What is your most memorable career moment?
Not to be too corny - however, booking my first ever wedding photography job in 2017 is a very endeared memory of mine. To feel trusted with an important day in the lives of not just one but two people for the first time is something I won’t be able to shake the joy of.
What inspires you?
What inspires me most at the moment is fashion design and bridal design. I love to see where dressmakers choose to make a statement with elaborate designs, but also when to be understated with something simple, timeless and chic.
Something else that inspires me is finding a way to showcase the unique characteristics of my couples in their photographs, getting creative collaboratively with them to bring their vision to life.
My most recent source of inspiration was the Australian Fashion Week which I had the pleasure of attending and shooting this year.
Do you shoot digitally, on film or both?
Mostly I work with digital photography, but I love using my Leica M6 for film photographs throughout a wedding day for some unique images. There is something special about doing things the ‘old way’ that is more tactile and hands on. Every film frame is curated more delicately and with more intent.
Do you have custom packages according to individual needs?
My couples enjoy a tailored experience, no weddings are identical and should be catered for specifically. I take joy in meeting all my clients and discovering their specific needs, special moments and ideal wedding day. With this information I build a custom package that’s tailored for each of my couples.
Where would you love to travel to for work?
I love everything out of France. So some places I would love to travel to and revisit for work are Le Havre, Saint Tropez, Paris and Toulon. However, I do have a heart for their neighbours in Italy and Sicily.
Who is your dream client?
Lovers with a heart for design, fashion and a creative spirit.
