I photograph weddings, and only weddings. No commercial work, no babies, landscapes, families, fashion, food, none of that. I've found what I have a passion for and dedicated myself to it.

With a simple, quality product, there's no need for gimmicks. Couples coming to me based on referrals from past clients are always increasing, which is incredibly humbling. Some of the principles I've based my business upon are :

- supporting marriage equality
- not marketing solely towards brides - grooms get married too
- keeping final images and albums free of watermarks, logos, or my name
- providing final images in their highest resolution as standard
- being upfront with my pricing structure
- sharing complete wedding galleries before booking
- maintaining reasonable delivery times
- referring other vendors based on merit
- using proper backups of equipment + image storage

My photos are honest and real.

It's important to me to keep direction to a minimum. For the majority of the day, I keep out of the way and let everything occur naturally. I'll pipe up for a bit shooting your family photos and give you a hand looking your best during portraits, but that's about it. I include the funny, the unexpected and the genuine frames as well as the emotional moments.

"The way you interacted with us and our guests brought out the best in each moment"

"Thank you for an easy, pleasant transaction. Excellent seller. A++++++"

I'm there all day. 10AM to 10PM.

A wedding is more than just the ceremony. It doesn't squeeze into four or six or eight hours. A wedding is full of moments, and when they happen I don't want to be sleeping in or driving home. I want to be there.

Shooting weddings in this style is the best way for me to truly understand everything that goes on within the day. I can't tell you how many times a chance to chat with a guest has given me extra insight into who the couple are and what is important to them, which affects how I frame different parts of the day.
"It felt like you were a friend who just happened to be carrying a camera."

I photograph everyone.

When it comes down to it, a wedding is about the people – and not just the happy couple. One of my favourite parts of the job is getting to know everyone else who is there and aiming to shoot as many of them as possible. It's unlikely that your guests will ever be all in one place at any other time, which makes it a pretty special opportunity.
"Although we barely noticed Ben there on the day (which is the best way it can be) he will now be such a big part of our family, the photos he took will be the ones hanging on our walls, the ones we show our children and the ones we will look back on in decades to come."
– Alyce, 2015

Doing business with me is easy.

My pricing is simple, and you don’t have to email me to get it – it’s all available here. I'm happy to meet for a chat outside business hours, or we can Skype if you're further away. I use online contracts, which means securing a booking is as quick as clicking a link. Once your photos are ready, I create a secure online gallery which makes it super easy to share the photos with whoever you like. I provide an online printing service, or you're welcome to make your own prints from the files - and I'm happy to recommend a local printer if so. If you order an album, I’ll select the initial images myself and prepare the first draft – usually couples only make a slight tweak (if at all) before sending to print.

You get married.

I handle the rest.
