I came to meet Emma & Mat through a dear friend of mine named Gammy, who is Emma’s mother. I used to organise photo walks down the Mornington Peninsula to interact with like minded people and to teach them a few techniques about landscape photography, Gammy and her friend Lin were my two best customers! So when the day finally came around for Emma to get hitched, Gammy shot me a message through Facebook to see if I was free, luckily I was, because a wedding in the Gembrook forest amongst fairy lights and food trucks is something I’d hate to miss! The weather held off most of the day, but even when it decided to kick in Emma and Mat couldn’t care less, they danced in the rain and laughed the night away.
With Christianne well and truly into her pregnancy it was time for their portrait session, and with Davey's Bay holding some nice childhood memories and being only a stone's throw away from their home.. it was the perfect location.
I first met Brent in high school thirteen years ago, we weren't the best of friends but I felt there was always a mutual respect between the two of us. He came across as a guy that everyone seemed to like, and I can totally see why, he's a top dude. When I met Demi on the morning of the wedding I was instantly pleased with how cool she was, genuinely happy and always super easy going. So to see these two awesome humans come together and celebrate their love was truly humbling and as always an absolute pleasure to capture.
I had an incredibly fun time photographing this beautiful coastal wedding, Michelle and Mick are such genuine warm-hearted people and I’m super grateful they asked me to be a part of their big day.

Set amongst the picturesque Mornington Peninsula Cindy & Scott celebrate their engagement barefoot. Congratulations guys! Thanks for having me :)
Sophia & Mark decided to have their engagement session around the wedding venue at the Mountain Goat Brewery in Richmond, this gave us an opportunity to scout possible shoots for when their special day arrives.
Never a dull moment with these two.
I caught up with an old friend last autumn at one of my favourite locations on the Mornington Peninsula, Red Hill! We drove around for a short time searching for possible shoots that included the seasonal colours, within moments we settled on the beautiful Montalto winery.
This couple flew in from England to celebrate their wedding at Tom's parent's place on the Mornington Peninsula, setup with a giant marquee and 5-star catering, combined with 2 hours of location photos at the local beach this was an absolute ripper of a day.
Such a genuine, fun and relaxed couple to work with. Congratulations guys!
I couldn't resist making this wedding day my first blog post - because the suave groom is my brother!
So the wedding was held at Poet's Lane in the Dandenong Ranges, I couldn't hold in the excitement! This location is STUNNING! The photo opportunities around the venue are endless, surrounded by towering mountain ash trees and lush greenery it's a photographers dream come true!
Dan (Damage) and his beautiful bride Simone spent the morning around their hometown on the Mornington Peninsula, this gave me an opportunity to capture their portraits using the available natural light from the house windows, everyone was pretty chilled so thankfully the photos turned out fantastic - cheers guys! At the end of the day, just before the light faded we spent some time amongst the antique lanterns around the venue.. it was a magical ending to an unforgettable day.
