My name is Amy and I’m a boutique wedding and commercial photographer based in Dubbo in Central West New South Wales, travelling servicing the Newcastle area, and anywhere in Australia really. I am seriously obsessed with photography and get such enjoyment from shooting someones wedding, or coming up with creative ideas to help market a business using creative content designed for social media and digital marketing. 

I drink a lot of tea, watch a lot of Netflix and if I could eat pizza everyday, I probably would. I’ll shoot your wedding as it happens -  candidly, creatively and with love.

I’ve been shooting weddings for the past 4 years and I love every second I’m behind the camera. Weddings can be stressful, but I make sure to create an environment for you on your wedding day that’s everything but stressful. Being a wedding photographer is so much more than just taking photos. If you need me to do a coffee run, hold your flowers while you hit the DF, touch up makeup or hold your Nan’s hand as she finds her seat, I’ll be there.

If you were to ask me how I would describe my work in three words, I would say: authentic, intimate and creative.

This year my husband Simon has made the move over to the photography and videography scene (you can read more about him here.) So if you booked a wedding with me and request 2 photographers, you’ll get us. I love shooting weddings with him, he’s so much fun and always helps loosen up the boys! He’s super relaxed and can give a bit of cheek to make you laugh. He’s the best, you should book him to come hang out on your wedding day!

Simon’s passion is videography and he loves creating social media content for other small businesses. His videos are detailed, creative and emotive and he’s able to capture the true vibes of your business for the world to witness.

If I’m unavailable to shoot your wedding day as the lead photographer, Simon is shooting solo weddings from 2 January 2019. See more of his work here and request more information on the packages he is offering for both photography and videography services.

Q+A’s

When can we expect our photos?

I want you to have your photos back as soon as possible, but I don’t like to rush through the editing process as I want them to be as perfect as they could be! For lifestyle or commercial sessions, you can expect to have your images back 2-3 weeks after your shoot. For weddings, your gallery will be delivered to you 6-8 weeks after your wedding. It’ll be worth the wait!

Do you travel?

Um, heck yes I travel! So far I’ve only photographed throughout Australia, but would love to shoot Internationally. Travel fees do apply, depending on where you wedding is.

Do you only shoot weddings?

Mostly yes, but I do love lifestyle and commercial creative content as well!

How many photos can we expect from our wedding?

This depends on a few factors like how long you’ve booked me for, how many are in your bridal party and how long you allocate for photos. But I promise you’ll get more than enough! On average, an 8 hour wedding will be around 600-800 images.

How do I book you for my wedding or session?

Click the INVESTMENT tab above and complete the form with all your information. I will send you all the information you could possibly need!

We’re not ‘photo people’, can you still get good photos of us?

Truth is, most people don’t actually like getting their photos taken or being in front of the camera. But the good news is, once you’ve loosened up and feel comfortable, it’s super easy to get candid, in between shots! These are my favourite, they the most natural photos that give a good depiction of you as a person or you as a couple. I’ll also try my best to make you laugh!
