PHOTOGRAPHER & STORYTELLER


      There’s more to capturing a moment than just pulling out your semi-new iPhone8 and clicking away at something. To me, perfect photographs are made up of equal parts patience, skill and experience. There’s an art to it.

      And that’s where I come in.

      WEDDING STORIES

      FROM MY JOURNAL …

      Gina & Anton – Engagement Shoot Currumbin Valley, QLD I’ve never really posted a lot of “engagement shoot” work. Without trying to sound too much of a wanker, I’m a guy who really focusses on the ‘documentary’ aspect of a wedding day, catching all the little moments, the details, the action, the so called “in-between”. I’m not the photographer who does posed family photos in the park, and therefore, for a little while I thought that engagement shoots were a bit of a challenge. How do I take the documentary aspect and apply it to this? A while ago now though, that kinda changed. I started to treat engagement shoots with the same approach as a wedding. I thought, it’s still just about capturing what’s real. It’ still about who showing who people are. Really I’m just documenting the love between them. Same as a wedding. And that’s exactly what it is. I’m just there, mostly asking people to walk and talk, tell each other jokes and hangout. Afterward, a lot of people say things like: ”well that was really easy”, or “that wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be”. And I guess it shouldn’t be hard. Sometimes we go and drink beers and sit on a headland, sometimes we go swimming, sometimes its just a sunset walk with your arms around each other. I think people think that they might fail at the photo taking part of their wedding day, so they want a little praccy-run first. Which, if you’re feeling nervous, is 100% a great idea. But honestly I think the most under-estimated part of these little sessions is just having some time to enjoy some fresh-air, get some beautiful photos of the two of you and just “be together”. That’s my aim anyway. Here are Gina and Anton in Currumbin a few weeks ago. They get married in January.

Fast-forward nine years later, they got married in the funnest, most-awesomest way possible. Two ceremonies, lots of RnB music, some incredible golden-grass hang-time at twilight and what felt like the biggest party of all-time! READ MORE
