NSW SOUTH COAST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
What I love about shooting weddings is that every couple and every wedding is different. I love getting to know the bride and groom, and the things that mean the most to them. When a couple lets me into their world, it allows me to capture honest moments, the connection between the two of them, as well as capturing the fun times with their dearest family and friends. The excitement that represents the beginning of the couple’s marriage. Then go and add stunning photography locations like the beaches of the NSW South Coast for the perfect wedding day.
NATURAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY.
Most of my couples want a fun, relaxed day where they can celebrate with their guests. But in order to have a relaxed day, some planning must go into the day no matter how chilled out of a couple you are. I will help you plan your wedding day so that it flows smoothly by creating a wedding day photography timeline. This will allow you to be present in the moments, for us to create beautiful photos and spend time with your guests.
Whether you are planning an outdoor country wedding, a casual garden or beach wedding on the NSW South Coast or maybe you are searching for an indoor wedding venue with scenic views, a venue on a clifftop or a waterfront venue, there are many places to choose from. The Australian coast is dotted with beautiful beaches and the NSW South Coast is no exception – sandy white beaches and crystal blue water makes the South Coast the perfect place to have a beach wedding.
Just remember, if you are planning an outdoor wedding on the beach, you will want to have an indoor venue as a backup plan incase of wet weather. You can find a list of community halls on the local council websites.
Beautiful, natural photography inspired by the coastal surroundings, texture in the cliffs and beach lifestyle.
PHOTOS THAT CAPTURE REAL MOMENTS.
Your wedding photos transport you back to relive your special day. The moments. The emotions. The excitement. The love.
My approach to capturing your day, is through a mix of documentary photography, creative and romantic portraits. I am constantly seeking to capture moments of laughter and tears as well as all the details. Family photos are important too so there is time allowed throughout the day for portraits of your family as well as the bridal party. And my favourite part of the day, the creative and romantic portraits of the bride and groom all captured in a very relaxed, natural way.
IT’S A CELEBRATION.
Weddings are a big party. Celebrating love with the important people in your life. All the wedding planning is done so its time to have some fun. Whether you choose to have a backyard wedding, an intimate ceremony in a country field or forest, or a bohemian wedding on the beach, it would be a pleasure to capture your memories.

BEAUTIFUL WEDDING ALBUMS.
Throughout history, prints and albums have served as a record of a family’s history. In the good old days they kept printed photos in shoeboxes in bottom of cupboards. It would be fun to bring them out and tell stories of the people in the photos and comment on the fashions.
I fear that with the amount of photos we accumulate between our cameras and phones, our most precious memories will get lost amongst the data clutter, or even worse get lost when harddrives or phones crash.
Imagine if our parents, grandparents or great grandparents didn’t have printed photos. We wouldn’t have these historical records of who the people were in our family that came before us. Through the clothing they wore and even the fact they could afford professional photography, we can learn about their lives, even from the limited photos available. Imagine now though with how accessible photography is, there is so much more our future generations will be able to learn about us and the times we live in.
There is not many events like your wedding day where you are surrounded by your family members all together at once. By printing your photos in an album, you are ensuring that future generations have a record of your family. While it may be hard to fathom your own children or grandchildren, one day they could be looking through your album. What you probably can imagine, is being a child or grandchild and looking at your parents/grandparents wedding photos and how sentimental they are to you. Your wedding album is an investment into your family’s history books.
Todays albums are not like the bricks that your grandparents had. They are contemporary art books that will look good on any coffee table. For those that love prints or something tangible, consider one of our fine art wedding albums.
