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.
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.
