Kevin creates beautiful, timeless wedding imagery that tells the story of your wedding day without awkward poses or filters. He continues to win awards year after year for his photography skills, & past couples will happily tell you that he’s easy & FUN to work with. His wedding photography packages include an hour photo session prior to your wedding day to get you used to being photographed.

How would most of the couples you’ve worked with describe your wedding day personality?

I stole these words from my past client reviews:

  • Super chilled, easy going, trustworthy.

  • A legend (yes, someone did say that!) 

  • All our family and friends loved him as well. 

  • He has so much passion and love for photography and it shows

  • Super dooper professional, yet knows how to make everyone around him completely comfortable. 

  • He's just like one of the family. 

  • Definitely makes me feel at ease.

  • Takes the time to get to know you.

  • Loves a laugh. 

  • A genuinely nice person who actually really cares about your day. 

  • Takes an awesome picture.

What’s the number one thing you always do or recommend when couples are nervous in front of the camera? 


Everyone needs a bit of TLC and practice in front of the camera, That's why I wholeheartedly recommend you have a photo session with your photographer before the day.

Unless you're a supermodel, most people feel really uncomfortable having their photos taken. Someone even told me that having a root canal is more fun. That's a true fact.
I can help make it less painful with a complimentary engagement (pre-wedding) photoshoot.

It’s very relaxed and easy – just the 3 of us. It’s yet another way for us to get to know each other and a great way to ensure you both feel calm and comfortable on your wedding day.

Do you usually meet with couples prior to their wedding day?


Yes, I'd love to catch up for a quick coffee and cake somewhere and chat about your wedding day. I'm around anytime for a phone call or email to ask anything you want before the day. All part of the service.

Coffee order: Double shot latte with no sugar, thanks

Do you offer engagement photoshoots or any other type of photoshoot before the wedding? 


With all of my collections, I provide a complimentary 1-hour “together session” where I give you a quick 5-minute lesson on how to be less awkward in front of the camera, show you my best hints on how to relax, tell some really bad dad jokes to make you laugh, and then we'll put that all into practice for the next 45 minutes. Give us 15 minutes and you'll even forget that I'm there. My clients often say that the together session was the best idea ever and really helped them relax on the wedding day (one less big thing to stress about).


What types of wedding photo albums do you offer?

I only offer the best for my clients, so I exclusively use Queensberry Albums — the Tiffany & Co. of the wedding album business — to showcase your wedding photos. Handcrafted in Auckland, your album is customised to your styling preferences. Once you have one, it will become a family legacy item that you'll treasure forever.

Do you shoot film or digital?

I photograph digitally and I process my photos in a quite timeless way that’ll look really, really good in 10, 20, 50 years’ time. I don't add funky filters or things that make it look trendy or hipster. What you’ll get are photos that you'll be proud to show everyone, anytime.

Do you usually work alone or with a second shooter and/or photography assistant?

For the most part, I work alone as I've done enough weddings to know where I need to be and where, however I can't be everywhere at once. I do recommend having a second shooter for at least half of the day if you have a larger wedding with lots of guests (normally over 150) so you can have more angles, and I get a bit of help organising your family photos to turn around things faster. Also, it adds peace of mind just in case anything happens, so it may be worth it just for that alone.

Can you tell us whose photography inspires you?

My dad. He was a wedding photographer when he was younger and he's inspired me to become what I am today. I know he's proud of me even though he’s never really said it (maybe it's a dad thing).

I don't have one photographer who inspires me. What does inspire me is: my clients, their story, and getting to really know who they really are. Making them happy inspires me to keep doing what I love again and again.

Can you share a couple of your favourite local photography locations?

As a Sydney wedding photographer, I’d say Centennial Park is one of the best locations around for wedding photos and/or engagement photos. Anything by the water with a view (that's a lot of places around Sydney).

Tell us about your packages.

Well, I have 3 photography packages that work for most of my clients, ranging from 8 hours to 14 hours. They all include a Queensberry wedding album because I feel that everyone should have one. They are really *that* good.

 

All of the things that make my services unique: 

  • A multi award-winning photographer (That's me! Awards include ABIA NSW Wedding Photographer 2018 - 2nd Place Runner Up & ABIA NSW Wedding Photographer 2017 & 2019 - Top 10)

  • Superb lifetime online gallery access for your photos

  • My "Safe as a Bank Vault" backup 

  • Speedy 4-week turnaround 

  • Engagement session to make you feel at ease before the dat

  • Handcrafted fine art prints in a lovely wooden box

 

I’m about stuff you'll be proud to have for the rest of your life — less of the crap you don't need, like USBs and things that won't stand the test of time. 

 

How many hours should we book your wedding photography services?

As long as you can! Which, for the most part, means from you getting ready to at least the part where everyone is on the dancefloor. You don't need to cover all of the party, as you can only have so many drunken photos grooving to YMCA and the Nutbush.

You never know when that "moment" will happen, whether it's the little things that you didn't even know happened or the big moments, your wedding photos are the only thing that will remain with you for the years to come, so you should prioritise them.

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How will I receive my wedding photos? Will it be on USB or DVD?

A commonly asked question that I get asked all the time is “How will I receive my wedding photos”, “Will I get a DVD or USB?”

When I first started as a wedding photographer in Sydney in 2012, I did what everyone else did and provide a DVD with all of your wedding photography. Not only was I restricted to 4GB of storage, it was incredibly slow to copy. It would literally take 4 DVD’s just to fit all of the photos. In addition to this, if my clients lost their DVDs they would have to ask me for the photos again. Luckily, I would have a backup saved somewhere, but imagine if I didn’t and all of the memories were on those discs and you lost them…

Did you know that Apple no longer has DVD players in their iMacs and Macbooks? In their eyes, DVD’s are obsolete. In a few years time, no one will have a DVD player.

Enter USB’s. They are cheap, easy and portable. You can copy multiple versions of your photos, take them anywhere and show your friends and family. You can copy them to your computer. It’s good until they do a EPIC FAIL on you and you can’t read it anymore. Don’t even mention the MAC/PC compatibility issues. Everyone has a story of when a USB failed on them….again, imagine all of your wedding photos were on that USB and it stopped working….

And guess what, they are releasing a new USB C which will make your USB’s obsolete in a few years.

As a professional wedding photographer in Sydney, I knew there had to be a better way of storing your digital photos with confidence it will be there in 5, 10, 15 years time. Future proof your photos that not only look good but it will still be around when you need it.

Enter Shootproof!

I’ve been using Shootproof for over 2 years now and it has made my clients extremely happy.

Here’s why you’ll love your Shootproof photo gallery

YOUR PHOTOS WILL LOOK AMAZING AND TAKE CENTRE STAGE. EVEN ON YOUR IPHONE.

Your wedding photography will be showcased with beautiful online galleries, complete with a slideshow functionality. Notice how all of your images are displayed in a tile format so it shows you a story. Not only does it look great on a desktop, it’s fully optimised for mobile.

YOU DON’T NEED TO SCROLL THROUGH THE ENTIRE GALLERY

The great thing about Shootproof is that your photos are displayed in stories of the day, example, Sarah Getting Ready, Brad Getting Ready, The First Look, The Ceremony etc. That way you can locate your photos quickly and not bore your friends and family with every photo of your wedding day. Trust me, only you and your future husband will sit through all of your photos for hours on end, not everyone will share the same enthusiasm!

YOU CAN DOWNLOAD ALL OF YOUR PHOTOS IN ONE GO

The gallery allows you to download all of your photos in one go, but you can also download particular photos one at a time if that’s your thing.

PEACE OF MIND

Your gallery is secured by password protection and a private URL, plus you can hide certain “Embarrasing” photos away from your mother in law and other zealous relatives.

SHARE THE LOVE

You can easily share photos  on Facebook and Twitter right from your gallery

Save your favourites so you can access them again and again and again

DO YOU HAVE A BACKUP PLAN FOR YOUR PHOTOS JUST IN CASE SOMETHING GOES WRONG ON THE WEDDING DAY?

Ask your wedding vendor if they have a backup plan, for example,  with photographers ask them how they will keep your photos safe if you lose a camera, gets stolen or your memory card fails.  Do they have backup equipment? What happens when it rains? If they can’t give you a good answer then I’d reconsider my decision. 

Most amateur photographers don't really consider how important this is, and only carry one camera and one lens. Imagine if they accidently drop that camera, what can they do?

I personally photograph my weddings with 2 cameras which contain dual memory card slots so one card backups the other. If the event of 1 card failure, then you have the 2nd just in case. 

For most weddings I have an assistant who serves as a backup to myself just in case anything goes wrong. 

I also have multiple lenses so if one stops working, I have a bag full other ones I can use. 

It does not stop after the wedding, so you'll be pleased to know that I have at least 5 working copies of your wedding photos by the end of the same evening as I copy it your photos to multiple devices and cloud storage to ensure it's completly safe.

Any photographer who doesnt consider photo backup  as important should not be considered for your the most important day of your life so far. 

I don't like wedding albums, I just want the photos on a USB. Can you do this?

I believe your wedding photos deserves a better home than a post on social media. This is why I am so passionate about wedding albums and printing your photos. 

It should be honoured and treasured in the same way you pledge to love, honour and cherish each other. 

Your wedding deserves a beautiful, high quality album so I only work with the best suppliers. I've found the world's best wedding albums in Queensberry.  Every time you open your Queensberry wedding album, you will fall in love again. 

I include a beautifully crafted photo album in every wedding package. Of course you will have a link to send your wedding photos digitally to everyone you choose, but this should only serve as a backup. 

Does opening your wedding album up in 10,20 years time evoke more memories, turning the pages and looking at the prints, or does looking at a computer screen give you a better viewing experience?

I understand that wedding albums do cost more, but in the long term it is something that won't go out of fashion or stop working dur to changes in technology.

Kevin is an excellent wedding photographer and we had no regrets choosing him to photograph the best day of our lives! From the moment we had our initial meeting at Kevin’s home we instantaneously fell in love with his portfolio and photography skills. We loved that his style was natural, candid and most importantly he focuses on capturing the raw emotions of people. No frills or awkward shots; just natural and simple yet classy images. We engaged Kevin for 15 hours on our wedding day in September 2018 and many were in awe that he was able to carry out his job so well on his own. On top of capturing all our special moments, he was non-intrusive. Most of the time we didn’t even realize he was around. Kevin also proved that he is more than just a photographer. He is friendly and approachable and made himself feel like he was part of our family. Our bridal party photoshoot on the wedding day was stress-free and full of genuine fun and laughter. Our friends and family were really comfortable with Kevin as he did seem like one of us – an old friend whom we haven’t met in a long time. Our photos were delivered promptly about 3 weeks after our wedding and we loved it to bits! The pictures are stunning, and we have received numerous compliments on them, with some guests commenting they’re the best they have ever seen! Kevin is definitely a very talented and brilliant photographer. If we could rate Kevin out of 10, we’d absolutely give him a 11!

Thank you Roxanne and Shaun for this wonderful review, I loved every minute of your wedding and the fact that you felt so comfortable around me that you can nearly call me part of the family for the day is just so heartwarming for me. Love how you gave me a 11 out of 10!

Kevin is an amazing photographer! We first met Kevin at a wedding open day. From the moment we approached his stall he was professional, friendly and showed us plenty of his previous work. We loved that his photos captured candid moments. His photos didn't looked forced or staged like some other photographers work. The whole experience was smooth and enjoyable. Kevin was quick to reply to all my emails and was very helpful when I had some questions. Everything on the day went smoothly. Kevin knew our venue well so he knew where to take us for photos. He is very creative and made us feel super comfortable. Kevin is not only a great photographer but a genuine, nice and friendly person. He is passionate about the work that he does and that shines through in his photos. I would highly recommend Kevin to any couple!

What can I say - Kevin was amazing on the day, making us feel completely comfortable. Photos came back so promptly as well, and boy were they beautiful. For quite a long-winded day with so many things happening, Kevin was so professional and captured everything so well. It's been amazing reliving the wedding through all his photos. He was also very responsive, patient and was readily available for all our questions leading up to the day. He was even readily available after the wedding, despite just having his first child newly born! You can really tell Kevin takes a lot of pride in his work - and rightly so. The hard thing now is - how do we pick only a select few for our wedding album?!

Hello Ann and Andrew, Thank you for such a lovely review, it means so much to me that you felt completely comfortable around us on the day! Absolutely loved your wedding, it was certainly one to remember especially the fun at the end of the night. Kevin

Kevin was recommended by our wedding celebrant. He took the best photos and got the perfect sunset photo that we would forever cherish! He made us comfortable during the entire time. Many thanks also for being our witness :)

14 Mar 2020

Deciding to choose Images by Kevin for our wedding was an easy choice. From our first meeting, Kevin warmly welcomed us as partners to what was going to be our biggest project yet. He fitted our preferences perfectly - we didn't care too much for staged or posed photographs and emphasised our wishes for our photos to be taken in the candid/natural light. We had a complimentary engagement photoshoot which was fun and also heartfelt. We were lucky to get our wedding celebration in before all the restrictions came into effect and the day/night could not have been better captured than by the talents of Kevin. By the end of it, Kevin had delivered a top quality finish that has surpassed our expectations. Every time we revisit our photos, it gives us so much joy. The photos capture so much emotion we almost feel like we're right back there on that special day. Thank you, Kevin.

10 Mar 2020

We couldn't be happier with our choice of using Kevin as our wedding photographer. We chose him because of his more natural approach to photography and he did not disappoint. He was professional while also making us feel comfortable on the day. Turn around time was super quick and the photos are absolutely beautiful. He has an amazing eye and captured every moment perfectly.

23 Nov 2019

My husband and I had the pleasure of having Kevin take our engagement and wedding photos. We had so much fun on our wedding day and we now have the most beautiful photos to remind us of it. He captured every important moment in a very natural / candid way which is exactly what we wanted! Thanks Kevin!

17 Mar 2019

He has captured the moments that can easily slip away. We needed our photos quite urgently as we have a small reception oversea. He was happy to help and gave us a lot of great photos just in time for the second reception.

17 Nov 2018

Kevin was the first and only photographer we contacted for our wedding in May 2019. Our wedding was a casual affair (spit roast next to my favourite park with jazz band and whisky) so it's very important that our photographer feels like a friend (rather than a stranger). We clicked with Kevin immediately and signed him on to do our engagement shot and full day. Kevin listed to all our suggestions and really became one of our guests on the day. The photos turned out amazing despite the rain. Kevin was very patient in helping us choosing the special photos for our album, which he personally delivered to our house. We have nothing but praises for Kevin's skills and wish him the very best!

22 Sep 2018

Kevin is a talented and unobtrusive photographer who takes beautiful natural photos. We were extremely happy with the photos provided by Kevin for both engagement and wedding photos. He has an eye for taking some uniquely amazing shots!

18 Aug 2018

Kevin is really nice and is down to earth and we really liked his style of photography. He made us feel very comfortable so we really liked this. He has such a quick turn around. He captured a number of candid moments. We have digital photos and will get an album made also. He has different packages to suit your needs!

1 Jul 2018

We didn't even notice he was there, he took beautiful photos and was not at all intrusive on us! We got exactly what we were after with him.

14 Apr 2018

None of our guests could contest what an amazing Job Kevin did. From the prep to the venue, reception and ceremony Kevin was there at the right time to capture every special moment. If someone was taking a photo on their phone he was right behind them. 5 Stars!

Hey Aaron, it was the best day ever seeing everyone so happy for you and Gemma. Loved every minute of your day!

16 Mar 2018

Such a great photographer, down to earth and warming guy. We felt comfortable with Kevin from the start. We wanted candid, loving and natural shots and he delivered plus more! We have such beautiful shots forever thanks to him :)

Thank you Stacey and Ben, your wedding was absolutely amazing and thrilled to be part of it.

1 Mar 2018

Kevin is a legend! He captured every perfect moment on our big day and ensured every moment of love was documented for our future viewing. Kevin was kind, patient and extremely accommodating to our every request. We want to do it again and if we could, Kevin is our man!
