So, I’ve noticed something.

I fly in from Australia, check in to my hotel and then a couple of hours later I meet up with the couple I’ve talked to online for months.

And they thank me.


– Thank you for taking the time to shoot our wedding.

– Thank you for being here.

– We feel so honoured.

And I think.

Thank me?

For the chance to go to cities I’ve never been to.

And hang out with people who like what I do?

You are flying me across the world and you are saying what?

  1. Great shot, very original composition. The great thing about the job is the lifestyle and when you are in a good place, the images reflect that.

  2. So beautifully written! Photography has to be the most gratifying profession, I love it.
    I’m so glad your couples appreciate the incredible effort you put into every shoot.

  3. God I love that image.

    And I had that exact same experience last week in Spain. It was pretty insane and I kept pinching myself!

  4. It is a weird dynamic, isn’t it? All I know, is that your pictures rock socks… And if I was 50% of one of your booking couples, I would be pretty thankful too.

  5. oh man…this is such a refreshing blog post! there’s so much ego in this wedding biz, but it’s nice to read about a level head who just so happens to take some of the best pics around! always a pleasure seeing an entry from you in my reader! :)
