My story...

I met a girl back in 2008 at a mutual friend’s wedding. It was held at a grand stone mansion in Sydney’s inner west. We instantly hit it off, barely having a moment of silence between us as we chatted the night away.

We were in separate relationships at the time, so nothing came of it for a few months. Those ended, we started dating, fell in love very quickly, and three years later in 2011 we were married in the very same mansion.

Fast forward to 2019. We have brought three beautiful daughters into the world, and love the day-to-day of building our lives together. Cath and my girls are the centre of my world, and I love to work with couples who feel the same about their family.

Photographing weddings 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, Modern Wedding magazine and The Sydney Morning Herald.

The photos I treasure most from my own wedding are the unscripted, candid moments between me and my family, and it has been my mission to capture those same images at each of the 300+ weddings I’ve photographed.

I do this by getting to know each of my couples personally, understanding not only what they are planning for their wedding day, but who is important in their lives and what they love about each other. This enables me to creatively tell their story in a way that is unique to them.

If you’re looking for a wedding photographer that will get to know you and understand your “why”, get in touch – I’d love to meet you.

    review rating 5  Jay and the Southern Light team are the best in the business. If you want someone to capture your special day that is unique to you Jay is the best! The process from initial meeting to pre-wedding shoot to shooting on the actual day and to the final album production was so smooth Jay was amazing to deal with. His relaxed yet professional attitude makes it just that so much more comfortable. Thank you so much!
