Thank you so much for visiting my website.  I am thrilled to have you here viewing my photography and hope you love what you see. 

I photographed my first wedding at the age of 15 and have loved capturing people on their wedding day ever since.  Throughout my career which has now spanned over 16 years it has become a passion of mine to create images for people that don’t just record the wedding day but to capture and create images that will in fact become family heirlooms and priceless works of art that in time mean more your loved ones than most of their possessions. 

Wedding photography to me needs to be modern and fashion forward but most importantly it needs to be timeless.  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. 

My wife and myself manage our studio.  Our small, handpicked and experienced team will handle your images as if they were our own. 

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 award prints and to speak and educate other photographers on the fundamentals of photography. 

I have been blessed to photograph couples wedding days all around the world and have travelled to amazing locations such as Bali, Barcelona, Chicago, Phuket, Buenos Aires, Paris and London to do so.

Now based in sunny Queensland with my wife and gorgeous daughter Scarlett, I mainly photograph weddings and portraits here but also travel often to Melbourne and Sydney for photography assignments.   Please feel free to contact us and arrange a time to visit our studio located at Varsity Lakes, Gold Coast
