Allview Escape Blue Mountains Wedding | Katie + Sam

Allview Escape Blue Mountains Wedding  |  Katie + Sam
I love living in the Southern Highlands and having my business based there. We have lots of wonderful wedding venues for me to shoot at, but one thing we don't really have is huge cliffs, or massive canyons. So, i'm always keen to get into mountains to shoot. This day was an absolute cracker, and i'm really happy to finally share this Allview Escape Blue Mountains wed[...]

Aghadoe Estate Wedding | Sarah + Lachlan

Aghadoe Estate Wedding  |  Sarah + Lachlan
The car was packed, and Michelle and I hit the road: a 9 our drive to Daylesford, which was to be our base for a few days while we scouted, prepared and then photographed this wonderful Aghadoe Estate wedding. Full story below. I met Sarah + Lachlan a few years back; they were guests at a wedding I photographed in a tiny Victorian town called Metung. In fact, Sarah w[...]

Southern Highlands Marquee Wedding | Sophie + Andrew

Southern Highlands Marquee Wedding  |  Sophie + Andrew
I've actually known Andrew - the dapper guy in the Southern Highlands marquee wedding below - for around 32 years or so. To be honest I can't remember meeting him back in 1985. In fact he may not even have been born yet! That was the year that I was attending pre-school in Sydney with his big sister. Somehow she and I managed to stay in touch, and then when her little[...]

Bowral Photographer | 2017, a Summary

Bowral Photographer  |  2017,  a Summary
In 2017, I photographed 73 weddings in three countries (Australia, New Zealand and Canada). Of those Aussie ones, most of them were in the Highlands - I still call myself a Bowral Photographer, as I live in Bowral, and most of my weddings are there. But I also love to travel around. [edit: after posting this, I actually had some other random wedding photographer mess[...]

Circa 1876 The Convent Wedding

Circa 1876 The Convent Wedding
The Hunter Valley is one of those regions where, it seems, around every corner is a new venue you haven't seen yet. Drive one more block, turn one more corner, and you'll find a spot you didn't know existed. In this case, quite central to the area, if you make your way down a small lane through a stand of trees, and over a bridge, you'll find yourself here - where thi[...]

Milton Park Wedding | Alee + Scott

Milton Park Wedding | Alee + Scott
What do you do when you want to have a Milton Park wedding, but you have this venue in Bowral where you absolutely LOVE the food called Biota Dining? Well, you have your ceremony at one, and your reception at the other. That's exactly what Alee and Scott did for their wedding in Bowral this year. Springtime; all the gardens were blooming at Milton Park wedding. Alee [...]

Jaspers Berry Wedding | Shaani + Tom

Jaspers Berry Wedding | Shaani + Tom
There was a time that I took every single wedding enquiry that came in to my inbox, and for which I was available. I just wanted to be out there shooting, and I really didn't care where I was. If an enquiry came in for the middle of Sydney, which is a few hours from my place, it didn't matter - I'd take it. In fact I really enjoy traveling to new places to shoot. What[...]

Somerley House Wedding Sutton Forest | Natasha + Julius

Somerley House Wedding Sutton Forest | Natasha + Julius
As some of you guys may know, the wedding 'off-season' in the Southern Highlands is July until September - winter, obviously. During this period there are fewer weddings in Bowral quite simply because it's cold and can get pretty miserable. This time of the year I tend to go overseas to warmer climates (I'm typing this in the midst of a humid Canadian summer), and blo[...]
