Description:

Award-winning wedding photographers based in the mighty Blue Mountains, capturing truly emotional elopements & weddings abroad

Shoot with the heart in mind as genuine sparks between you are everything.

This is deeper than pretty tableware, awkward posing and over the top glamour.

So begins your legacy together.

I’m not about to halt the flow of your wedding day to force you into awkward (and ultimately less meaningful) wedding-y poses for hours on end. I also don’t really give much of a stuff about pretty styling or epic views. Nor do I think your wedding is the ultimate pinnacle of your lives. I’m neither ‘dark and moody’ nor ‘bright and airy’, because I don’t force my photography into a mood that doesn’t feel authentic to the day. You also won’t hear me commanding crowds or see me with a tonne of photo gear, yammering on about Photoshop and Instagram likes.

I’m tattooed and pierced. I have a huge beard and a Scandinavian scowl. I also wear dark denim, weigh a hundred kilos, love to deadlift, and I’ll drink beers and eat vegan ‘til I die.

So, yeah. I’ll probably scare your mum.

But really, I’m a huge cuddle monster. And I think that love is more enveloping, layered and powerful than many give it credit for. I think a lot of folk are stuck inside little social and traditional constructs and they’re unable to see the big picture. And seeing big picture is kind of essential, isn’t it, especially if we’re going to live for 100+ years.

I value the humans in front of my lens more than the photos I take of them. I don’t shoot for the front page of magazines, nor for my own portfolio. I think relying on awkward posing and static movements is lazy and meaningless, and that emotion and drama will always win out over perfect composition and exposure. I’m an artist, more than I am a businessperson. And as much as I like to plan for a wedding day, I crave spontaneity and anarchy, so you know I’ll be ready for sloshed beers, flowing tears and an inappropriate atmosphere.

Put simply —

I aim for the soul more than the sky, because I know these photos of you will mean more in a hundred years from now.

I’m intuitively led, focusing more on human emotion than epic portrait set-pieces.

I photograph your day according to the flow of it,

Never interrupting, never repeating or posing,

Simply shooting the events as they unfold,

in a powerful and impactful manner.

Ben.
