If we aren't laughing, I haven't done my job right...

Hey, I’m James, Hunter Valley Wedding Photographer based on the beautiful Central Coast. My wife Daniela and I recently started this new chapter, having moved here from the beaches of Southern Sydney. We live together in our beautiful home, which is the perfect setting for NERF war games coincidentally. This home is like a maze and I often lose her inside of it (she’s small so you can understand). If you ask Daniela, it should be filled with kids and dogs (Labradors please) very shortly though, so family life is on the horizon for us both! Family is and always will be a very important aspect of both our personal and professional lives. That’s why we absolutely love being tasked with capturing the biggest day in your life as a new family!

I am always laughing, I think I have a problem! I like to look at everything in a positive light, which believe it or not, sometimes annoys people. I guess I could tell you that I love travel, and I am a massive foodie, but let’s be honest…who doesn’t and who isn’t? So let’s get a bit more personal. I am the kind of guy who watches the same movie 25 times before starting a new movie. I live in the gym, and am very passionate about living a healthy (well, 80% of the time) lifestyle. More than anything though, is my love for the beach. I can always be found down at the beach soaking up the rays and hitting the surf.

I have been photographing weddings and couples, out on my own now for just over a year! Why do I love this job so much? Why not! I spend all my time with sick couples who are crazy in love, couples just like you! Couples who are a bit crazy and don’t take life too seriously. Couples who are always up for a good time, and down for a bit of an adventure! I love people, what can I say? It’s like, my thing! I’m weird, outgoing, and a bit crazy. If that sounds like your kettle of fish, and you would be up for a free coffee (I will pay for you, we won’t steal it) or beer, then let’s start chatting about your big day!

As a rule of thumb I service Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Sydney, Illawarra, and can take about 4-5 destination weddings per year. If you want me at your wedding though, get in touch, I am always happy to travel if possible! I have packages to suit everyone starting from $3,000. I can totally customise packages, so if we don’t fit your budget but you really want to work with me, hit me up and we can work something out!
