Africa – Nomad Adventure Tours

Africa - Nomad Adventure Tours
Two weeks in Africa: three countries - Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. Fourteen days to try and get a feel for this immense, hauntingly beautiful continent. To dip our feet in the pond, and decide if we want to come back in a few years and dive right in. I'm not really a fan of the 'tour' - I've never been on a Contiki tour, and the idea of being on a cruise ship mak[...]

Bendooley Berrima Wedding Photos
It's no secret that a Bendooley Berrima wedding in autumn is my happy place. In May I spent a wonderful autumn day at Bendooley with Caitlin, Rob + their families and friends. Here are some reasons why this day was perfect:   1. The temperature. Autumn in the Highlands is perfection: not too hot nor cold. Shirt weather in the daytime, and cool enou[...]

Milton Park Bowral Wedding

Milton Park Bowral Wedding
The first wedding I ever photographed (I think back in 2008) was at Milton Park. I remember turning up with my meagre camera gear, no idea what was happening (I'd only been to one wedding in my life). I remember being absolutely and utterly terrified. Things went pretty well, I had fun, and I think my photos weren't too bad. For some reason I'd never been back to shoo[...]

Arthur's Pass Wedding  |  Jean + Cam
Jean + Cam's Arthur's Pass Wedding was one of two New Zealand weddings Michelle and I had the pleasure of shooting earlier this year. I have a bit of a history with these two lovely people; you can read the story here in my blog post of their engagement shoot in Banff, Canada. Since that shoot i'd been very much looking forward to hanging with them again in their home[...]

Terrara House Wedding Nowra | Ali + Matt + their bulldogs

Terrara House Wedding Nowra | Ali + Matt + their bulldogs
Say hi to Ali and Matt. Their Terrara House wedding will go down as one of my most memorable weddings; let me explain why. When I met Ali and Matt for coffee a year or so before the wedding, we bonded pretty quickly over various things: our love of good food and coffee, of the south coast and the beach, and of course of animals. They told me all about their lovely pai[...]

Gibraltar Hotel Bowral Wedding | Tiff + Jimmy
Say hi to Tiff and Jimmy, and say hi to their wonderful Gibraltar Hotel Bowral wedding. I'm just going to go ahead and tell you a few of my favourite parts of this day.

Wanaka Wedding Photographer  |  Criffel Station Woolshed
I'm very proud to share this epic Wanaka Wedding with you today. Both my parents are in fact Kiwis (although I was born in the UK). We moved to Australia when I was very young. I do love Aus, but sometimes I wonder how my life would have been different if Mum and Dad had decided to settle in New Zealand, rather that shifting the family to Sydney. Would I still be l[...]
