Who we are

Hi, we’re Chris and Jacqui, and thanks for visiting our site.

Before making a home and starting our wedding photography business in the Hunter Valley, Chris and I spent much of our time working and travelling around the world. We experienced and lived many great adventures, including the night we met in Venice. From this point we continued working all over the world for the next nine years. During this time, we learnt so much about people, life and of course, we never stopped learning about photography.

After the arrival of our first little boy, we moved permanently to Australia and very quickly fell in love with the Hunter Valley. We feel very fortunate to be able to live, work and raise our family in this beautiful region of Australia.



In recent years Chris and I have worked as freelance wedding photographers and have shot over 200 weddings for reputable wedding photography companies in Sydney and the Hunter Valley region. We are both experienced in photography management, training and leading teams of photographers. I have a BA Degree in Photography from Napier University in Edinburgh. Together we both have 30+ years of photography experience.
