Hello, I’m Sam!

Your wedding photographer & friend throughout the excitement!

I am based in the Newcastle, Hunter Valley region of Australia – however I travel everywhere & anywhere, just give me a date.

Us Australians don’t tend to enjoy sharing their good qualities however there must be a time and place, and i’m sure this is it. Anyway; i’m the creative, beach loving, regularly laughing guy who loves people and his job passionately.

I love capturing moments full of authentic and real emotion.
I do this by making sure that each couple feels relaxed and comfortable on the day to truly be themselves, whatever that may look like.

I love weddings. I love photography; but I also believe that marriage is absolutely worth celebrating. marriage is an amazing life event and the most rewarding occasion to capture and be apart of.

I want every couple to have tasteful and creative wedding photographs that they can share and look back on as they venture through their marriage journey together.

  • What do you love most about what you do? I love being apart of a couples most important day for a living. To be involved in something so rich, exciting and significant is a true blessing.
  • What gets you out of bed in the morning? I have new ideas.
  • Where did your passion for what you do start? Honestly, I think it started all the way back with disposable camera's as a kid on holidays. I would spend half my holiday looking through the camera wanting to capture the scenery the best I could. Growing up in Newcastle definitely helped as well as it has such a beautiful coastline.
  • What is your advice for a healthy, long lasting relationship? Make your choice & choose to LOVE your choice, everyday.
  • The most romantic movie of all time is... The first scene of UP! It's so sad, but it always reminds me again how important my Fiancé Anna is in my life, so I guess you could call it romantic.
  • What is your best advice to couples planning their wedding? Choose the vendors you love, organise what you need to, then let the day happen. Don't micro-plan or pre-imagine each moment. Go with it and embrace the un-expected that happens throughout your day. That's where the magic is.
  • The most romantic location in Australia is... Way too hard. Where I live in Newcastle is honestly as good as it gets. However.. Perth is a hidden gem of Australia! Cottesloe beach is phenomenal. Or Sunshine Coast [Maloolaba] .. Ahh 5 more just popped in my head!
