Samuel Jacob, Newcastle Based Photographer


Passionately capturing tasteful photographs by embracing the moment. Based in the Newcastle, Hunter Valley region of Australia.

Hello! I’m Sam.

​I am a wedding photographer based in the Newcastle, Hunter Valley region of Australia. I also really enjoy travelling Australia Wide photographing weddings & elopements.

​I’m the creative, life loving, ocean swimming, regularly laughing guy who loves people & his work passionately. I love capturing moments rich with real emotion, whether that be subtle or expressive. I am able to capture these moments by creating a comfortable & relaxed environment where everyone is comfortable to be themselves, whatever that may look like.

I especially love my work because I really value marriage. Marriage is a beautiful event where two human beings commit to loving the other no matter what. I think that is pretty incredible & very rewarding to be apart of.

Most of all, I want every couple to have stunning & tasteful photographs that they can look back on throughout their marriage. Oh, and I want you to look good!

  • 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!
