My story...

I’m Jay, and I’m a wedding and portrait photographer based in Sydney. I’m the luckiest guy in the world, with my wife, Cath, and my three little princesses – Macy, Scarlett and Ellie.

I’ve been photographing weddings and families since 2007, a journey that has taken me all around Sydney and Australia, and even to destinations like Fiji and India. My work has been featured in publications including Cosmopolitan Bride magazine half a dozen times, South Asian style blog The Crimson Bride, Modern Wedding magazine and The Sydney Morning Herald.

Photography is my calling. It’s been eight years since my first professional shoot and I still get a thrill every time I look through my photos, knowing that I’ve tried something new and created something unique and special for my clients.

Having been married and started my own family, I’ve never felt more connected to my photography. Hearing a groom talk about how much his new wife means to him reminds me of how important my wife is to me and our family. Watching first-time parents unable to take their eyes off their new baby reminds me of when I first held my baby girls and the surge of emotion and excitement that I felt.

Southern Light Photography is an extension of my own journey. From falling in love, to coming together in marriage, to nurturing new life – I believe in the importance of capturing all of life’s big moments.
