What is your favourite wedding theme?
I love anything that the bride has done herself. I know that it takes a lot of time and effort, but it really shows. I think that the guests really appreciate any DIY and personal touches also. I also love country/rustic themes.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by my couples. I’m 100% fuelled by their enthusiasm on the day and leading up to it.
What is special about weddings to you?
Families coming together and celebrating, couples declaring their love for one another and the great energy coming from everyone all day long.
What do you love about photography?
I love wedding photography, I love that I can be as experimental as I like without a director or client giving me any direction. From that, I love that I can make people so happy with what I create.
What is your favourite image of all time?
I don’t often look at or study photos and have never really thought to myself ‘this is my favourite’, but I do love everything that is created by Jeff Newsom who photographed our wedding last year.
What book are you reading at the moment?
I just finished ‘Scar Tissue’, the auto-biography of Anthony Kiedis. I’m about to read ‘Drive’ by James Sallis. I loved the movie!
What is your Number 1 tip for brides and grooms?
Enjoy every moment of your wedding day.
What is the one tool of your that you can’t live without?
What is your resolution for this year?
Get out of the house more! I’m always working to streamline my business to allow me more time to get out and about.
What are you excited about right now?
The wedding season ahead. It will be exhausting but I’m regenerated after several months off and ready to push myself.
Where is your favourite place to escape to for downtime and why?
We just escaped to Cape Tribulation last weekend, it was incredible and only two hours away. The place is off the grid with no phone reception. I personally loved being disconnected from everyone, except my wife, for a couple of days.

Ms Chinoiserie Says: I love the brides’ little DIY touches too – and Cape Tribulation must have been a wonderful place to get away from it all before your busy wedding season starts again!
