A unique combination of wedding photojournalism and stunning creative portraits. For couples who are looking for a fun and relaxed, yet different approach to wedding and elopement photography.

Hi, I’m Sam. I'm a South East Queensland | Byron Bay wedding photographer who specialises in a unique style of candid and creative wedding photography.



With my silent ninja photographic skills, I blend into the background, which allows me to unobtrusively capture your laughter, tears and heartfelt moments. My photography is honest, fun and romantic - exactly how it should be!


I always aim to get photos that go beyond the everyday, standard wedding photography. With my drone, I capture truly unique and stunning birds eye perspectives to give your wedding photos that extra umph! Perfect for country venues with no flight restrictions.


Don't worry! I want you to feel happy and relaxed on your wedding day. You won't find me placing you in cheesy or awkward positions where you don't feel comfortable. Through a handful of simple poses with easy to follow prompts, I can capture your natural connection, allowing your love and energy to shine through.


I'm really easy to get on with and not afraid to crack a few jokes throughout your wedding day. I love capturing all of the belly laughs and crazy dance offs when things get a bit wild into the evening. My images are full of life and highly emotive, and will allow you to relive your magical day for the rest of your lives.


I really love helping couples in all aspects of planning their wedding, whether it be with photography, timeline advice or other areas. I'm pretty much an open book so please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

Looking forward to chatting soon,




Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How do we book and pay?

I use an online booking system that is straightforward and easy to use. After we’ve decided that we’re a suitable match, you’ll receive a custom payment portal online where you can sign the contract and make the deposit and final payment via credit card.

Will you travel for our wedding?

Absolutely! I love visiting new locations! I love photographing weddings in Sydney, Byron Bay, Blue Mountains, Southern Highlands, Brisbane and beyond. I'm still hanging out for that magical Iceland wedding......

Can we do whatever we want with our wedding images?

You most certainly can! (So long as you're not using them for commercial purposes). You can print your photos wherever you want and you can distribute them on social media until your heart is content. All I ask is that you kindly credit me when posting images online.

Do you use an assistant/second shooter?

I’ve shot a lot of weddings el solo. However, my wife Corinne has started accompanying me to some weddings, acting as my second shooter/assistant. This has been really great because she is able to capture some beautiful candid imagery as well as making sure that I don’t forget to feed myself. If you prefer that I photograph el solo, then no problem. Just let me know when we chat.

Is it true you've never been beaten in a game of Settlers of Catan?

Absolutely true…. well, not really. I am pretty good though and I definitely have a few tricks up my sleeve (I’m a longest road kinda guy). If you fancy getting to know me before your wedding over a game of Settlers, then by all means hit me up and you can verify the above statement for yourself.

AMAZING. Sam is an incredibly talented photographer, and he works hard at his craft. Sam and his second shooter (his beautiful wife, Corinne) were amazing throughout the entire process. They met with us in person TWICE before the big day to make sure our expectations were met and fit in seamlessly on the day to capture some incredible candid shots on top of the beautiful portraits. Couldn't be happier!

We had Sam photograph our whole wedding from start to finish, the photos that Sam took where absolutely beautiful and we were so happy with the quality. Sam fitted into our wedding like he was a guest and got some really awesome action photos. Would highly recommend Sam super photography again and again 😊

Greg and I would recommend Sam in a heartbeat. His professionalism and creativity is outstanding and we are absolutely thrilled with the quality of the photos and the time & effort put into making them beautiful. Thanks again Sam xo Leanne & Greg

Sam is a brilliant and talented photographer! I could not recommend him highly enough. Sam was able to capture the special moments as they happened naturally without staging or posing which was important to us (as my now husband does not like being in front of a camera!). The love and support we received from Sam during COVID-19 and postponing the wedding twice was above and beyond of what we expected. A week after our magical elopement Sam sent us our gallery and WOAH! I was left absolutely speechless and full of happy tears. There is no words to describe the photos - he has captured the day to perfection. Thank you for capturing our special day and climbing the cliffs and getting into the water to get those perfect shot. Booking Sam to photograph our elopement was the best decision we made!

Sam was incredibly helpful throughout our entire wedding process from when we first contacted him to even a few weeks after our wedding. He worked with us to get what we wanted out of our wedding photos in a way that is professional and kind. He offered suggestions on what would work best, not only for the photos but for the entire day. Many problems on our big day were avoided because of him. We both couldn't be happier with the photos we got from our wedding, stirring up emotions we felt on the day all over again. If you want someone with style and experience, Sam is the man.

We could not have picked a better photographer than Sam! With COVID and all the restrictions, planning a wedding was tough however Sam was awesome to communicate with during the lead up, and he really went above and beyond to help make it easier for us. On the day, Sam was absolutely amazing; he was patient when needed, efficient when we were inevitably running behind on the day, he was present when we needed him, and quietly capturing in the background when we didn’t. By the end of the day we seriously felt like Sam was part of the family! The pics were delivered really fast, and they were exactly what we were looking for. He perfectly captured the vibe of our wedding day and the pictures were natural and candid. A huge thank you to Sam, any couple would be lucky to have him!

Sam is an amazing photographer, not only does he take gorgeous photos, he was throughout the entire process been super helpful, prompt with answering questions and with the craziness COVID added to the wedding so patient with last minute changes to the timeline on the day. The photos Sam captures are truely in the moment and gorgeous. I didn't want a photographer that would only take staged photos, I wanted someone who would capture me squishing my nephew, my mother-in-law crying happy tears and most of all the love I have for my husband. Sam captured all these moments and more. As soon as Sam arrived, he felt like part of the family that day. If you are looking for a wedding, engagement or couple photography, trust me, choose Sam he is the best.

It was clear from the start that I wanted Sam to be our photographer. I fell in love immediately with his award-winning portfolio of work. His documentation style was the exact photo coverage treatment I wanted for my winter wedding at the stunning Darling Harbour. I found him extremely easy to work with. We were blown away when he sent us a slideshow of the shoot just a few days after the wedding! He captured all our wedding moments in a wonderfully natural and magical way. As expected, our wedding photos turned out perfect. He gave us hundreds of amazing shots with great variety. If you are planning to book Sam, please don’t hesitate, because his services are quite on demand. He was also the photographer at my cousin’s wedding at Hunter Valley. I assure you that getting Sam as your wedding photographer is the best decision you’ll ever make.

Sam is an amazing event photographer. We were lucky enough to have him for two occasions - our engagement party and our wedding. Two of the reasons we booked Sam is that he takes amazing night portraits, and his candid photos of people and guests celebrating are amazing. At our engagement - which was an Indian henna party - he truly captured the colour and energy of the day. Looking through the photos is like being back at the event and seeing the joy on everyone's faces. Sadly, our wedding had to be downsized to five people because of COVID, but we did a photoshoot after the ceremony with Sam and he went above and beyond to make it magical. We stayed for a couple of hours and did lots of different set ups - we brought lots of our wedding decorations we hadn't been able to use and we created some great artistic night shots. The comments we've had on our wedding photos have been phenomenal.

Sam was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was professional and had some great ideas which we happily adopted. We couldn’t have been happier with the fantastic suite of photos Sam produced for us. Highly recommended!

We originally contacted Sam as we saw how natural and relaxed his portfolio was. After meeting up with him we knew he was going to be the ‘one’. Sam was so easy to work with. He was friendly, funny and passionate about every single shot he captured. It was really important to us that our photos were naturally taken and accurately represented our special day. Only a few days after our wedding we received a beautiful sneak peak slideshow which made us sob (happy tears of course). It still brings a tear to our eyes when we watch it now. Sam has a great eye for detail and we could not be any happier with our incredible wedding gallery. So much talent in a single person. We can’t thank you enough Sam. Such stunning photos captured. Cherished memories that we will be able to look back on forever!

Thanks heaps Laurise! You guys are awesome! We'll have to go for a beer down the track and catch up sometime!

He was amazing and I highly recommend him to anybody. We received the most amazing photos and people who were not able to attend the wedding were blown away by our wedding photos. Reasonable price for a full day as well. Thank you so much!

We recently hired Sam to shoot our wedding and thank god we did! We were so nervous on the day that it’s all a blur, but luckily we have the most beautiful photos to jog our memories. Sam put us at ease from the beginning (we are not natural models!) and captured some beautiful moments of our guests. On top of that, before the hangovers had abated next day we had some previews sitting in our inbox! Incredible. Thank you so much Sam!!

Everything was really light and breezy, nothing went wrong and we're really happy with him!

I really liked that he made us feel really comfortable. He delivered everything that we wanted with our photos. All the guests loved him as well which was really important to us!
