Wedding Photographer

Candid Wedding and Family Photographer

Relaxed, spontaneous & real!

Servicing the South Coast, Wollongong, Illawarrra & Beyond!


Our approach to Weddings and family photography is very similar!To put it simply, I think your story is worth telling! I want to capture who you are & honestly, to capture those natural, spontaneous and REAL moments is all that matters.

I'm not about making you look all stiff, posed and smile straight down the camera. I love to capture the moments that you are laughing so hard you snort or you start to cry happy tears. I want you to dance, move and remember the exact moment in time you are in.



I'm not sure I even have to explain this to you guys. Let's be honest is there any other place you would like to get married?? Okay... Maybe like some mountain top in New Zealand... or some epic national park in America... (did you know we travel world wide?)

But the south coast is my FAVOURITE for wedding and family photography. The Wollongong & the Illawarra has EVERYTHING that you could wish for. National Parks, beautiful bush and of course the most epic beaches with that dreamy white sand. It also has some of the most beautiful vendors around. Its a place that I feel so lucky to call home.

I love being a Wollongong / Illawarra wedding and family photographer because there are so many damn cool places that we can explore! No matter if it's a Wedding or Family Photography session, from the cliff and mountain tops to the beautiful beaches. The Wollongong / Illawarra area has it all!
