a year in review: 2014

Wow, what an incredible year that was!

2014 saw me travel to Canada, USA, Bali, Thailand, Fiji, New Zealand and all over Australia, photographing weddings, people, landscapes and everything in between.

Bring on 2015, I’m going to become a Dad! I’m the Best-man at one of my best mates weddings (bit nervous for the speech) and I get to shoot incredible weddings for awesome couples all over the world again! (Including Santorini and Mexico!) Woo hoo!

Here’s a selection of my favourite moments from the year just past…


David Canpbell - All killer, no filler! What a year and what a year coming up.
Amazing work mate.

jenny - stellar images friend! so glad we were lucky enough to have you photograph us in 2014!

Jack Chauvel - What a wonderful year :) Exciting that you are soon to be a dad man and look forward to seeing what 2015 brings for you.

James Day - This is the first time i’ve commented on a blog in years… but I just had to. This set of images is absolutely epic. I’d be beyond proud if these were mine.

The Richardsons - These are amazingly beautiful images. Kudos to a very talented photographer! Thank you for capturing the best day of our lives:)

John Doutch - As always, a fabulous year’s work. I have a wedding to shoot this weekend, and I often look at your work for inspiration………..not to copy, but to remind me to keep ‘thinking outside the square’ as you do to such brilliant effect.
I hope 2015 is another great one for you!

Phuket Wedding: Kristen & Karlson

I feel so lucky to be able to combine travel photography with a destination wedding.

So I jumped at the opportunity to do exactly that, when Kristen and Karlson emailed me asking me to photograph their wedding in Phuket, Thailand.

… and what a wedding it was!

I took my good friend Dave Campbell along to help capture the day too.

The team from Luxury Events Phuket absolutely nailed everything from start to finish as per usual and the facilities in Singapore airport were as state of the art as ever!

Thanks so much for having me there guys! I Cannot wait to design your album!

Jack Chauvel - Awesome Alex.. looks like such a fun wedding :)

David Campbell - What a wedding! And what a location. Good times brother, let’s do it again soon!

Kirk Marks - Wow that looks amazing and a great location – well done

Santo - Really awesome work Alex, looking forward to work with you this coming saturday!

I’m a fan already!

Tocal Homestead wedding: Raych & Karl

7 months… That’s the amount of time from when Raych first contacted me to the time we found a date that worked for both of us. The wedding date and location changed at least 3 times over that period of time.

We got there in the end, we had a venue the beautiful ‘Tocal Homestead’ and we had a date ‘Friday the 13th.’ Everything aligned and it happened and I’m so glad that it did.

I wish so badly I could write out the transcript of our emails back and forth in the organising stage of this wedding but it would just be too funny* and you wouldn’t be able to handle it.

Long story short as told through the following pictures…

*by too funny I may also mean too rude

I took my good mate David Campbell along for the day too!



Aisha - beautiful photos!

Sam Clark - These photos are mind blowing marksy!!! Such an amazing wedding!
