Southern Swell

Chantelle and Tim joined me for an afternoon of exploring some of Sydney’s southern coastline. Rock jumping, swell watching, spray-dodging and sunset hunting. A beautiful afternoon in the soft autumn sunlight.

Grounds for Love

Shehana and Stephen’s beautiful Grounds of Alexandria wedding was just the way a “Grounds wedding” should be. Vibrant, warm, full of colour and happy moments. These two are just made to be together: Shehana - level-headed, calming and warm matched perfectly with Stephen’s laid-back, wavy-haired chill.

A Sydney Icon

If I were to describe Monica and Sam to you here, the one word that would probably come to mind is ‘overachievers’. Not in the normal sense, but in the ‘wow, you did all of that and you’re only so young? ‘ That’s only about half of it, and I probably only have heard a fraction of the incredible things these two have achieved in their lifetime so far.

Boho Thunder

Robyn & Allan’s boho beach epic. Thunder, rain, wild weather, crazy sunsets, and lots and lots of love. Who knew that a campground could become so lush and decadent?

Elanora Epic

The brief for this stunning backyard wedding was simple: Ben and Linda wanted to celebrate their love with close friends and family in their very own backyard. Uncomplicated, elegant. All the best bits. They are both mountain bikers (like me!), and had their bike bags all tucked up under the stairwell for a trip to Rotorua, New Zealand, the day after the wedding. Priorities!

A Hunter Valley Dream

This was a very special wedding. Harleigh and Callan got in touch with me a while back, and told me a bit about their day. They explained they were young, on a bit of a budget, but had some pretty cool ideas. This wedding shows what can be done when a community of people get together and make something properly special. So much of it was put together by friends and family, and it all came together beautifully at Pokolbin Hall in the Hunter Valley.

Magic in Mudgee

This was a pretty special wedding. Mudgee is a cute country town in central New South Wales. It is known for two things in particular: food and wine. For the latter, imagine vineyards on the outskirts of this cute, country town. Now imagine a wedding in the vineyards. That's The Vinegrove.

Harbour Heaven

Monica and Sam have recently moved back to Sydney from Canberra. Actually, they had moved back only the day before their engagement shoot! Naturally, Sydney was putting on a bit of a show, and these two were very happy to spend the afternoon enjoying each others' company while the sun set over the harbour. We began at Balmoral Beach, where we climbed over some rocks and played around in the afternoon light. We jumped in the car and headed off to a Sydney classic: Bradley's Head.
