So often, society puts us into boxes based on who we are, what title we wear day-to-day. Maybe sometimes we even start putting these limitations on ourselves?
Tameeka flipped the ‘accountants aren’t creative’ cliche completely on its head.
Between her and Mitch they poured their absolute heart and soul into their day, learning photoshop from scratch to create their custom stationery, making their own photobooth props, constructing countless items through multiple prototypes (including concrete candle holders)
And what about this? She even learnt how to bake and made their wedding cake. #nextlevel
But as amazing as all that was, the philosophy of the day was really simple. Two people in love, just beaming at being able to celebrate + party with those closest to them.
I felt blessed I could be there for it and do their hard work and their story some justice.
Thanks for watching.

Thrilled to share the highlights from Jarrod Croker and Brittney Wicks’ wedding held in the Byron hinterland.
I met with Britt a few month prior to the wedding, and after hearing more about what was planned, I suggested the idea of spending some time in the days leading up to the day with both of them to help build a more complete story.
I’m glad I did, and I’m glad they trusted my vision.
Connecting and having the space and time with them to capture some of the events, feeling and thoughts in the lead up to the day was priceless.
So much great content, so many great stories and plenty of surprises from an amazing couple of days.
Thanks for watching.

‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.’
~ Maryanne Williamson
And with those words from Simon’s Mum I knew for certain how the edit was going to come together.

Billy and Sarah got married. Channel 10 + Channel 7.
Completely high on life and each other. Completely present on soaking in every single moment of their day.
Here it is through my eyes + ears + lens.

Every product, service and brand has a story behind it.
They all started with a seed; an idea, a thought, a passion.
The story that’s behind the brand helps customers relate and connect to what it is that you do, offer, or represent. Done well, the power of quality film not only educates potential clients + customers, it truly engages them.
Everything I do is driven by story. Conveying what’s happening, whether big or subtle, and interpreting that through light, camera movement, the lens and into the edit suite to really shape and mould it into something honest and meaningful.
This careful listening + observational approach is 100% applicable to businesses or brands that need to get their message out there. To really connect the viewer and deliver something emotive and powerful.
Over the last few years I’ve produced brand films for quite a few different industries – from boutique photographers to farmers to international airlines and everything in between.
There’s been innumerable studies about the power of high end video and how large a portion of internet traffic it takes up now. Put simply – if you don’t have video, you’re missing a big part of the picture
If you felt engaged by what you’ve seen of what I do, and need your brands story told or a message delivered…get in touch.
Would love to start a conversation.
Every brand has a story behind it. Tell yours well.
