About Me

Being able to photograph weddings as a full-time job is a dream come true for me. Not only do I get to take photos for a living, but I get to capture the most emotion-packed, kick ass day of people’s lives. For me, weddings are a celebration of a couple’s absolute love for one another, not a scheduled itinerary of scripted traditions. And for that reason, I think it’s so important that couples celebrate their marriage in a way that represents their personalities. A massive party with hundreds of family and friends or an intimate elopement on top of a mountain with no one around? As long as it’s for you! I specialise in non-traditional weddings and no idea is too crazy for me. I fucking love weddings and I am physically (will climb mountains) and emotionally (will cry) invested in your marriage.

How I got here

In 2015, I backpacked for a whole year around South East Asia and Latin America. Somewhere between climbing into a volcano with gas masks in Indonesia and jumping out of a plane in Chile, I was inspired to take risks. Since then I have returned to Tasmania and worked tirelessly to turn my passion of photography into a career.

Tasmania, you legend

I love Tasmania. I was born here and there’s nowhere else in the world that I’d rather live. This place never ceases to amaze me with its wild locations and landscapes, it is truly one of the world’s best venues for a wedding or elopement. I feel so lucky to have such an incredible place right at the foot of my doorstep.

Get married and have a fucking good time doing so!

There’s an expectation out there that you have to get married a certain way. Don’t believe them…it’s your wedding and you can do whatever the heck you want. My partner and I eloped on the top of a mountain with just a celebrant, photographer and chef. It was the most epic experience of my life, emotions were at an all-time high and we got super drunk afterwards. Do it for yourself and love every minute of it!

I can’t wait to hear about what you have planned for your upcoming wedding. If you’re a Hobart local I’d love to sit down for a coffee or beer sometime so that we can get to know each other!
