I have been photographing weddings since my first one in 2003 and I still love the crazy-connected-fun of every wedding I shoot. 
I love nature and am in it as much as possible, whether it's walking in the bush or swimming in the sea. You'll notice that a lot of my photography incorporates the beauty of the world around us.  
I love songwriting and playing music. After a long day photographing your wedding I'll get a second wind when the reception music starts. Don't judge my dancing.  
Before my daughter was born I expected that her early years would be more about looking after her than enjoying our time together. I was wrong. The moment she was born I loved her, simply because she existed. Being a father made me appreciate love so much more. I now take this appreciation with me to weddings, noticing all the ways that people show love and what is special to them.  
When I met my partner I more fully understood what it meant to love someone so much that they felt like a part of you. Photography became more about capturing that connection between people and not just creating art.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am based in Sydney, Australia. I have special rates for weddings in Canada.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

Photographed my first wedding in 2003 and went full-time pro in 2007.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My goal for your wedding photography is to create images that capture your unique personality and show you looking absolutely amazing. But my goal is more than just capturing pretty pictures. 
At every wedding there are fleeting moments—often unnoticed by the bride and groom—where people connect, open themselves, and for an instant we see them as they truly are. 
We see love, humour, quirky playfulness, that one expression they do that we love so much. 
In that moment we fully connect with them. And through their photo we continue to feel that connection down through time and across distance. 
My goal is that you will receive, not just photographic art that shows you looking amazing and uniquely you, but also that years from now you’ll be able to look at your wedding photos and remember exactly how you felt during those moments. 
That is my goal and style all in one.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My wedding packages start at $2500 and I customize them based on your particular desires.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

These days I tend to do meetings via Skype/Facetime/etc.
