GAZi - Photographer. The wedding day is a perfect story. And it's my job to tell that story through spectacular photos.
Photos that are unique and evocative and transport you back to that exact moment.
Many of my weekends in high school were spent in art galleries staring at the artworks in amazement. I always found myself drawn to the photography exhibitions and fell in love with black and white images. I was 17 years old when I purchased my first camera, and I’ve lived and breathed photography ever since.
A couple of years later, as a shy and lanky youngster, I began an apprenticeship in a commercial photography studio working with many highly skilled and talented artists. Combined with several years of Photography College, I absorbed everything that i saw, and then began experimenting in my spare time to develop my own signature style.
That was 20 years ago but it feels like yesterday.
These days I have my own studio in Melbourne, with my own dedicated apprentices whom I love to teach. I specialize in fashion and advertising and I have been on assignment throughout Australia, Europe, Asia and the USA. I regularly shoot bridal fashion and my work has appeared on covers and in the editorial features of magazines including Wedding, Couture, Complete Wedding and Modern Weddings. The knowledge and experience I have gained from these opportunities provides me with a distinctive edge when I photograph you in your gorgeous dress.
For most couples, their wedding day is the first time in their lives that they are in front of a professional camera, so It’s my job to ensure that the bride and groom both feel very relaxed and comfortable. My style is very natural and candid, combined with a cool fashion edge. I like to watch what is unfolding in front of me.... but always be ready to jump in when i need to. I will document those fleeting moments in a way that highlights the difference between a good shot and a lasting memory captured in an image.
Why do I photograph weddings? It’s the emotions that I see in the people. The first glimpse the groom has of his bride, the pride of the parents as their children stand together to begin their new life and so much more.
I think it's a genuine privilege to share such a day. An honour to meet and befriend the family and friends of the couple on the happiest days of their lives
Rest assured I am as fussy as you will be to make sure that your wedding photography is all you want it to be and more. My hands on approach from meeting the couples, finding the locations, shooting on the day and creating the album, will ensure your wedding photos are the envy of all your friends.
I am straight up with all costs so you know exactly what you will receive, and I know my approach works because all of my wedding clients find me by word of mouth.
I look forward to sharing my passion with you and capturing your wedding story in a photo.
