Our team

Meet the family

I started taking photos as a kid with basic film cameras and it taught me one important lesson – make it count, you only have 24 shots!

Then I spent years working/backpacking around the world. I wanted to capture images of everything I saw.  I was drawn to colourful landscapes & portraits of the interesting people I saw in faraway lands. When my images were not representing my experiences I pursued an education in photography. I refined and perfected my skill. Then my 2 sons were born & I naturally pointed the camera at them. Soon my friends wanted me to take pictures of their kids, then came family & friends weddings.

My evolution from enthusiastic amateur to professional has been totally organic – I never set out to make it my job, but all those years with a camera in my hand have given me an eye for capturing emotions & so, wedding photography has found me.

Primary Photographer

For me film and photography have always been a passion. From a young age it was the magical feeling of being able to immerse myself into another reality that had me hooked.

However, it’s the story telling potential of film and the ability to change people’s hearts that lead me to the New York Film Academy, where I graduated with a diploma of screen and media. From there I started a career as a professional lighting technician working for large companies like Disney and Touchstone.

Recently I have been drawn to wedding cinematography. Filming weddings is always fun as every wedding is completely original and unique.

Film Maker

I’ve always loved the arts, especially film. I became obsessed with making videos  by messing around with friends on weekends trying to be creative and having fun.

That passion grew and took me to study Screen & Media at the New York Film Academy. This led to working on Films & TV at Roadshow Studios, and doing lots of other side projects like commercials and music videos.

I enjoy all aspects of the wedding filmmaking process – Lighting/Sound/Editing – and I love every couples unique story.
