- Why wedding photography is an incredible artform
I am a wedding and portrait photographer and havebeen part of the photography industry my whole life. Growing up in a photographic family, I was printing at my father’s laboratory at the age of 12 and after taking over the family's wedding and portrait studio, I now shoot more than 60 weddings a year in Australia and overseas.
Wedding photography needs to be modern and fashion-forward but, most importantly, it needs to be timeless.
I photographed my first wedding at the age of 15 and have been passionate about capturing people on their special day ever since. I was lucky enough to be the youngest ever recipient of the AIPP Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2012 when I was just 20.
It's imperative to create images for people that don’t just record the wedding day but capture something that will become family heirlooms and priceless works of art. The images that I create for my couples on their wedding day will be treated with the utmost care and respect. From the moment I press the shutter every care and attention to detail goes into what I do.
Throughout my career I have always strived for excellence in what I do and this has seen me travel the world to compete in photographic competitions, to judge photographic awards and to speak and educate other photographers on the fundamentals of photography.
