Sometimes I feel like I captured "The Perfect Wedding". The venue is beautiful, couple madly in love and not shy about showing it, every part of the wedding day has got stand-out wedding photos.Read More
Jo and Ryan combined quirk and tradition together. We actually spent some time together before the ceremony. Ryan got a first look of Jo away from everyone, in a private. I love photographing The First Look as it's called in the biz of wedding photography. Away from a prying eye emotions often fly high.
The balcony was a last moment find but (it's Westin btw) what a cool find it was. Where else can you dance with this view literally at your feet :)Read More
The wedding was a great combination of modern and traditional; quiet romance and pure fun; shadows and light.
I really like photographing at COMO as place offers unique architecture and light/shadows. The place is quiet, elegant and soft and so are the photos we captured after the First Look. Some happy tears were shed.
Mandoon Estate is all about being close to the nature. Ceremony right by the river; among the trees. Massive windows make you feel like the reception is happening in the middle of the bush.Read More
What a visual feast this wedding was. From the ingenious wedding dress to the summer colours of UWA. The whole wedding day seemed to be infused with warm glow.
And I love photographing at the University of Western Australia. The place is full of photographic potential if one looks beyond the cliches. Dara holding Hugo the Poodle is one of my absolute favourites photos. Palm trees form the perfect background and help the eye to find the focus of the photo, you can see the love there even if you don't know Dara. The next image is even better :)Read More
Backyard wedding it was but full of chic and style :) In a new house in the heart of Fremantle. New house for the new family and a new start. Big, bright and just right. There's a metaphor lurking there, wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Leslie and Simon got married only a few days after moving in and their kids were the bridal party.Read More
My second destination wedding of the year was in Canada in stunning British Columbia. I never imagined my job as a wedding photographer will take me to places like this. I feel very lucky and humbled that someone would fly me to the other side of the world just so I can photograph their day.Read More
Fremantle is one of the best engagement photography locations in Western Australia. This cool engagement session is a perfect example. I know how this statement sounds but hear me out.Read More
There is a pattern among the couples who come to Perth for their pre-wedding session and hire me. They want their photos to be different, unique, creative and full of emotions. This is how they describe my portfolio, not me.
They are adventurous, open minded, fun and very comfortable in their relationship. I don't know how exactly it came to be but this is a description of my ideal client. A few years ago I wasn't sure what I want to shoot but I knew well what I will not. So every pre-wedding photograph I have shown on my blog is exactly what I want to do with my future couples.Read More
When I started this thing called “being a professional photographer” a few years ago I wrote a list. The list wasn’t all about my photography goals but they were there. Back then I wasn’t even sure what sort of photography will be my thing. I just knew landscapes were boring and people were not :) I wrote my list, put it in my wallet and forgot all about it.Read More
There are wedding destinations that take your breath away the moment you see them. And Pienza in Tuscany is definitely one of them. A little town made of stone, perched on top of a small hill. In the morning when fog fills the valley it looks like town floating on a massive cloud. Fig trees grow in the cracks of hundreds year old walls and smells of delicious food fill the air. This is Pienza.
Terre Di Nano is a wedding venue to match the town. Also perched on a small hill, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. A place where pizza oven is a size of a small house :)Read More
We were so lucky that day with the weather. The sun has already disappeared, it got dark and I felt a bit disappointed. And then the sky exploded with colours- it looked like someone splashed a bucket of paint all over it.Read More
I remember walking into Moore and Moore gallery a few years ago. Prints by best Western Australian photographers were on display. I was in awe of all the beautiful photographs on the walls. I wrote down the names of a few people and decided to get in touch. It was 2014 and just I quit my job to give photography a go. I knew no one in the industry and I knew nothing about being a professional photographer. All I had was a very vague idea about turning passion into work, one camera and three lenses.Read More
I might be a bit biased but I honestly think Fremantle is one of the best places to get married. It's the mix of history, architecture and nature. As a wedding photographer I want my images to tell a story. A story of the place, story of the couple and their friends. I want to capture all the little things that make them special and make their wedding day unique. Fremantle has a great mix of locations which always allows me to make something different and push me creatively.Read More
There are places you like the moment you see them. I love venues that are a little different, not too big and not too small. Venues with lots of light and places which I can use creatively. And Upper Reach Winery was just like that. I don't know how Krystle and Scott found it but I'm happy they did. It's a part of Swan Valley which still has a very homely feel to it.Read More
I’m excited and humbled at the same time. A few days ago Capture Magazine the winners and finalists of Top Emerging Photographers of 2018 . Somehow I managed to scrape my way to the top and became one of the Top 5 Emerging Talents in the Wedding Category in Australia. I really wasn’t expecting the 5th place, knowing many of my super talented WA fellow wedding togs also entered this year. But there I am, the man with a strange name :)
Thank you to all my friends and family who helped and supported me along the way. And big thank you to all my clients for their trust.Read More
I don't blog any weddings for a month or so and than I blog two weddings in the space of a few days :) That's the way it is sometimes. Katie and Bob flew all the way from rainy UK for their big day. And it rained on their wedding day. But only a bit, and by that point no one cared :)Read More
Swan Valley is one my favourite places in WA. I really like the relaxed atmosphere matching the slow run of Swan River and the multicultural background. So I was obviously excited for Courtney and Cal's wedding at Sandalford Wines. They booked me without a meeting me in person first which is always a good sign. They really loved my portfolio and there isn't a photographer doesn't like hearing that ;)Read More
Here's my latest bit of family photojournalism. I don't even know if it's a thing - family photojournalism. I Googled "Family Photojournalism Perth" really quickly and nothing came up. But this is what happens, when instead of posing people, you focus on storytelling and catching moments. Predictable family photos versus meaningful and multi-layered images.Read More
I knew I'll have great wedding photos because their couple session was amazing. I am not disappointed. We chased light, played with shadows and climbed things :) There's many more images I'd like to put in here but I can't. The post would be just too big. Look me up on Instagram, I'll be posting there.Read More
