I’m not quite sure where to start with this story and that’s because my involvement almost didn’t happen. I’m not going to get into the how and why I wasn’t available but I decided that I would meet Adam for a drink and at the very least help him find a kick ass photographer. I met Adam at the Benjamin on Franklin here in our little Adelaide. I was sipping on scotch when this infectiously bubbly human came running outside where I was sitting.
Fifteen minutes later I turned to Adam and said.
“I’ll do it.”
Adam simply replied; “What, how? Really”.
“Yeh man, we will figure something out. I want to be there.”
And so it was. You see, sometimes people connect, sometimes people move you, sometimes there are extenuating circumstances beyond our control and sometimes when there is a will there is a way. I respond to the heart. I am a terrible business person. I am however incredibly interested in telling stories worth telling.
So with that, i’ll leave you with the images from their day. They will tell their story better than I ever could with words.
Thank you so much to you both, Adam and Erica. Thank you for entrusting me with your dearest memories and thank you to the beautiful and talented Gaja for second shooting this with me.

From the little town of Port Lincoln here in our very own South Australia, this couple is about as ‘salt of the earth’ as I think you can get. We first met over coffee and experiencing their shy, yet charismatic personas, I was pretty stoked to hear they wanted to have me shoot their wedding in their very own backyard in a year from now.
But that is a story for the future. About a month ago, they were in town and we spent a day getting to know each other better and what do you know? I brought my camera, so how about I just let the images tell the story of what we did.
Thanks again to the lovely Gaja for coming along and second shooting this and thank you to the both of you for being positively wonderful! Let the count down begin…
Till next year you two!

Jules, Ferg and I had a couple goes at this shoot. The first time around, we got rained out and the second time we also got rained on but only as we were walking back to the car at the end of the shoot…
We started as strangers but by the end of it all, it really felt like we had become friends. Beautifully in love, jovial and deeply kind people, I had an incredible time adventuring around with these two. We happened to take some pretty epic photos along the way also.
I had a very dear and special friend second shoot this session for me and i’m sure if you do some searching online and instragram you will find the very talented Gaja Kutnjak.
Thank you so very much for all the memories Jules and Ferg. Oh and do tell me if you need a wedding photographer, won’t you?
