I love weddings and you’re getting married – sounds like a Perfect Match!

I would feel privileged to document something so wonderful in your life.

I want you to know that I believe in simplicity.  As your photographer, my job is to make things easy for you.   From our first meeting, to your wedding day, to receiving your album,  I will guide you through the whole process from beginning to end.

I’m friendly and down-to-earth by nature.  I started photographing weddings in 1995, and bring with me a calm, professional approach.

Please get in touch if you think I would be a good match for your special day.  You can book in a consultation by emailing me through the contact tab above or calling me on 0404 194 826.

Local Wedding Coverage begins at $1990.

All packages include a pre-wedding consultation x 2 (second one 2 weeks before your wedding day to confirm your wedding schedule and finer details),  initial photographic coverage (8 hours), and digital images.  This covers bridal preparations, the ceremony, photos with family & friends after the ceremony, a couple and bridal party location photoshoot, and up to the beginning of your reception.  I can stay longer, just let me know what you require.



Are all photos edited?

Yes.  All photos receive exposure and colour correction & colour enhancement.  Editing does not include retouching (e.g:  skin smoothing, skin tone correction to fix spray tans, body shaping).  However photos featured in Albums and wall art are all retouched.


How many photos will we receive?

Plenty!  Every part of the day I am hired to cover will be well represented.  Exactly how many photos you received depends on the collection you book and the amount of photographic coverage included.


Should we purchase a Wedding Album?

I sure hope you do!  ❤  An Album shows off your photos like a disc of digital photos simply cannot.  A professionally designed album beautifully tells the story of your day.  It is something that will be around after facebook and jpegs are long forgottten.   See some of my albums here , or better still, book in a consultation to experience them in person.


Do you travel interstate to photograph weddings?

Yes.  Though I am based on the Gold Coast, I have also photographed weddings in Sydney, and in the Whitsunday’s.  Travel expensives are additional to photographic Coverage.



Are you a bossy photographer?

I always remember that this is your wedding day, not my photoshoot.   You won’t hear me yelling out orders to anyone, and will find that I blend in nicely with your guests.

I will be there to document all the big things as they happen, and all the little details in-between that you won’t have time to notice on the day.  My job is to tell your story.  With beautiful photos.


Image Delivery

4 – 6 weeks after your wedding day.


Can we meet to Talk further?

Absolutely.  If you think that I would be a great match for your wedding then let’s meet.  I am based on the Northern end of the Gold Coast.  For those couples not on the Gold Coast, we can meet via Face Time or Skype.   I’d  love to hear your story &  your exciting plans.  Many couples book within a few days of meeting,  so they know their date is secure.
