I always love a Butleigh Wootton wedding, and Lily and Jason’s unique day was no exception. Jason and the boys rolled up in the morning with a box filled with photo booth goodies including props, Polaroid camera, and a corkboard to pin all their guest’s photos as their day unfolded. Lily was getting ready in the master bedroom, upstairs at Butleigh Wootton. Her warm smile set the scene for the day, as she climbed the grand sta
Kathleen and Jason had their wedding at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church with a very stylish reception at Butleigh Wootton. They all flew down a few days before from Queensland. Jason and the boys were very relaxed and having a few laughs when I arrived. His best man David was looked for cufflinks on line as he misplaced his own. The boys had gone Go Kart racing the day before, and yes Jason won. Rumours floated around th
Teena and Howie held their classical wedding ceremony and reception at the grand Butleigh Wootton. They had spent several years living in Hawthorn, after moving from Canada, and wanted me to capture the cobble stone lane ways and cafés that reminded them of why they loved this historic suburb. Met up with Howie and his groomsmen, as they got ready at the Quest Apartments. After a quick Google on how to tie a bow-tie, we moved

Set up a controlled experiment in the studio where, lighting, background, subject matter (me, yes not that exciti
Documenting Lauren and Andrew Sunbury Wedding at Our Lady Mt Carmel Church started with a relaxing drive to their home with planes flying overhead as I passed the airport. Photography was a very important element to the natural way they wanted their story told. It was very candid approach with the boy’s eager to light up their cigars and pour the scotch once the suits were on. Meanwhile, Lauren and the girls were relaxed, with
With my passion for documentary photography, I’d love to share one of my recent personal projects. Greek Easter, growing up, revolved around three key elements for me. Becoming a vegan for 7 days and fasting. I had it easy as you are ment to do it for 40 days. Attending midnight mass on Saturday night, with our candles lit, while eagerly waiting for the fireworks to explode above our heads; or on someones head at times.
There are times when the story just unfolds in front of the camera, and your creative spirit runs wild with ideas. You could feel the warmth and close bond of Merisha’s family, when I arrived at the Captain Treat Victorian Terrace in Williamstown, to capture all the laughter and excitement as the girls were getting ready. After photographing a special moment between Merisha and her dad, when he presented her with a beau
Rachel and the girls prepared for the big day in the upstairs bedroom at Butleigh Wootton where the ceremony was going to be held under the Silk Lined Marquee. Like most grooms, Mathew was a little nervous waiting for his bride but you could feel the joy when he saw Rachel for the first time in her gorgeous dress. We had a lot of fun after the ceremony with the big group photo in the court yard. With such a fun, relaxed gro
