I shoot weddings but MARRIAGE is what I'm really passionate about. I believe that a strong marriage is the foundation for a stable home so I want my couples to relive every moment of their wedding day. The emotions, the elation and everything in between because whilst they think I'm capturing love stories (which I suppose I am), I'm really there to document the making of a promise. One I want them to keep all of their days so here, we specialise in creative and beautiful ways to remind them of that promise for years to come.

Hyde Park is a special place for my family. In the warm months we go there probably once a week and I have the sweetest memories walking the loop with my wife and daughter. About a year ago I took an image just like this one of my wife and daughter using my phone. At the time I thought it looked like a painting so when Alistair and Catherine suggested we shoot their pre-wedding there it gave me an opportunity to re-create that image.

Photoshop has a lot of filters you can use but I've never used them. Years ago I always thought they looked fake and gimmicky but I did notice there was an Oil Paint filter. I've never clicked on it so I thought to try it out on this image. The result is pretty cool! I spent countless hours painting with oils in high school so it's amazing that this actually looks like an oil painting.

Perth is amazing... If you're from around here then you probably know exactly where this is. My job is to take couples from the ordinary and put them into a fairytale. You could mistake this for a scene from a movie or Autumn in Paris but the wonderful thing is you don't have to venture quite so far to get there.

I love taking these starry night portraits. This one is my favourite as you can see the core of the Milky Way at the bottom left of the image. It's one of those rare times of year where the milky way is at the right angle to create a beautiful composition.

Lawn games are pretty popular at the moment for guests whilst they're having pre-dinner drinks and canapes before entering the reception. This is a giant connect-four game and I wanted to use it in the final image of the night. Needless to say this shot took a lot of careful planning to execute but in the end we have a different spin on the "back-lit couple in a gazebo" theme.

This is taken inside Perth's beautifully restored treasury building. I love the symmetry there and I think even the simplest compositions should always be carefully and purposefully executed.

In most of my images I just try to let God's creation speak for itself. This is a perfect example as I haven't actually done anything except place Ed and Jo in the highest point I can, shooting with a cooler magenta white balance and exposing for the gorgeous sun-kissed clouds.

This image was taken during a rare sunset in summer at Mosmans Restaurant (Mosman Park, Western Australia). Guy and Kerrie had already entered their reception and I was watching the sunset time as rain clouds started covering the sky. The sun is actually setting behind me and as it went down it filled the sky with deep oranges and reds. I quickly grabbed the couple and we rushed to the jetty to create this.

This photo is really special because it was raining heavily when we arrived at the blue boathouse and just as we were preparing to shoot, the rain clouds blew over and we managed to get this photo half in the rain and half clear blue skies!

Derrick & Abigail asked me to take them wherever I pleased. They just wanted some special images so I took them to a little suburban nature trail next to a freeway. It goes to show that no matter where you are, if you have the right light and composition you can turn the ordinary into a fairytale.

The Crawley Boathouse is probably Western Australia's most iconic location for wedding photos. Couples fly in from all over the world to have their photos taken at the "blue boathouse" The special thing with this image is that the beautiful soft light on the couple is due to a storm cloud that has just passed overhead and is directly behind me creating a natural softbox. On most days with blue skies you'd never see such a perfect balance of light in the middle of the day.

This image is colour but it need not be. I loved how the river rocks surround the couple and the stillness of the water creates a clean frame for Simon and Michelle. It's a busy scene but your eyes are pulled directly to the couple.

One of the best things we get on the west coast of Australia is sunsets at the beach. I have so many couples who fly all the way to Australia for their wedding and pre-wedding photos just so they can bring home images of themselves at our beaches and natural landscapes. I love the unpredictability of the coast. I can go back over and over throughout the year and it never looks the same. Like this image, all I need to do is ask my couples to walk out and enjoy the view and they find themselves walking into a work of art.

This image was taken between offices in the Perth CBD. I loved how this frame had a very obvious highlight and a lot of interesting lines which supported and led your eyes to the highlight so it was a matter of putting the couple in the perfect spot with a beautiful moment.

This creative portrait was taken at an engagement session and the swirls you see are made by the torch function on the couple's mobile phones!

One of the groomsmen at this wedding asked for a photo of himself in front of the fountain and as I took the obligatory photo i noticed a sliver of light peeking through the falling water. Knowing the sun was descending fast I grabbed the bride and groom and the result was this unique image.

This final image is probably one I'm not likely to repeat any time soon. Moored at Fremantle Port, this ship is a scale replica of the Duyfken, the first known European ship to sail to Australia in 1606. I noticed that the padlock on the gate had been accidentally left unlocked so we strolled on board to make this unique sunset portrait.

This image was taken out in the countryside down in Kendenup Western Australia. I loved the silhouette of this huge tree on the groom's family farm so whilst we strolled around the cow paddocks I noticed the sun peeking through the branches and we were able to make this gorgeous landscape portrait.

It was a hot sticky summer day threatened by storm clouds but thankfully the skies kept relatively dry. Just after sunset and 5 mins before speeches I convinced the bride and groom it was worth leaving their guests to make this image overlooking the beautiful Swan Valley. Not all my punts pay off but this one certainly did.

This was one of my more difficult images to create because it required my couple to climb over slippery river rock formations and though spider webs to get to the perfect location where the sun was setting. However once in the right position, I asked them to enjoy the moment together and this is the result.

I thought it fitting to send though an image with a bit of Christmas spirit for the December collection. I was asked to shoot a short marriage ceremony at the registry office and on the way there we walked past an elevator lobby where the sun had come in at the perfect angle to light up the room. On our way back after the ceremony I couldn't resist and we popped in to create this image.

This image was made at Perth's famous Cottesloe Beach. The wonderful thing about the beach is that you often get some amazing limestone formations that come and go as the tides reveal and hide them. Combine that with a special sunset and being at the right place at the right time, we were able to create this beautiful silhouette.

During winter the orchards are bare and a few weeks in early spring they blossom and you get these beautiful rows and rows of pink and white flowers. I have many clients who fly to Western Australia for their pre-wedding photos. Nick & Charlize flew in from Singapore on short notice and they wanted images that were nothing like home. Her purple pastel dress and flower crown matched perfectly with the pink blossoms and this was the last image we took at their session.

I was asked if there were any white deserts in Australia for engagement photos but sadly all our deserts are dry red sand. We do have huge white sandy dunes near the coast so I brought Kevin & Monica out there for their shoot. Fortunately the thick clouds make the entire background muted which all serves to make Monica's red dress the first thing you see in this image. I also love the symmetry of the dune in this image.

This is one of my favourite images of all time and was taken in the middle of winter in a dry river bed in country Australia. Normally this river bed is barren and dusty but the winter rains made it uncharacteristically lush. The greenery and streaming light makes it look like a scene from a fairy tale forest and every girl wants to be in a fairy tale of her own (if even for a brief moment)
