I started to discover photo-reportage about 5 years through the work Trent Parke and decided the photojournalism path was right for me. I'm based in Sydney, Australia and shoot weddings all around Australia. Last year I was awards 2013 NSW AIPP Album of the Year.
My aim is to capture natural emotions, feelings and connections. I want personalities to be distinct from wedding to wedding and the best way to do that is to document people acting naturally.
