Are you looking for a Blue Mountains wedding photographer?
Hey there! My name is Hank and I am a photographer servicing the entire Blue Mountains region, as well as the Lithgow, Bathurst and beyond. The Blue Mountains are full of romance and beauty. When it comes to photographing weddings, my focus is on capturing the romance and beauty between two best friends.
Because it means you're doing your research to find a photographer you love and trust.
I know you don't have time to muck around, so let me give you my one piece of advice to decide if we're a good fit: hire people you vibe with.
Chemistry, values and a sense of humour are going to be more important than simply “has camera, takes photos.”
If you want someone who will make you feel safe, seen and celebrated on your wedding day, then I am your person.
I can't wait to meet you!
Your special day should be relaxed, fun and free of stress.
The Blue Mountains in New South Wales is the perfect setting for your wedding and your wedding photos. Sweeping landscape views across the valleys provide a whimsical and adventurous backdrop to set the scene for your wild romance.
When people think of Australia, they often picture the Blue Mountains. Nestled in New South Wales just two hours from Sydney, The Blue Mountain's panoramic views provide never fail to take one's breathe away.
The Blue Mountains is one of New South Wales' premier wedding destinations, affording couples panoramic views coupled with divine, photogenic weather. I am personally a fan of the clouds and mist, and the mountains do not disappoint. However, choosing a location for your wedding can be tricky. There are a number of incredible wedding and elopement venues to get married in the Blue Mountains that make for incredible memories. Some of my favourite (and most photogenic) wedding locations include Allview Escape in Blackheath, Seclusions in Rydal and Lilianfels, Katoomba.
I have also photographed countless elopements at some of the Blue Mountains' most unique lookouts. I encourage you to choose a location for your wedding ceremony that feels relaxed, looks stunning and helps you to create lifelong memories.
Yes. Absolutely! I've always loved shooting weddings in the Blue Mountains. The cool, balmy weather and breathtaking scenery make for an incredible canvas to capture raw, intimate moments between lovers.
No. Living in Sydney gives me easy access to the mountains, and I want to make it as easy as possible for my clients to make the right decision on which wedding photographer to hire. By not charging a travel fee to the mountains, I am eliminating one extra expense for my clients.
Of course! Many wedding venues in the Blue Mountains already provide exceptional grounds to roam for portrait photos, but I have a few sneaky locations up my sleeve that I'm always happy to share with brides and grooms.
Depending on how many hours of coverage you desire, most couples choose to spend between $3,500 - $4,500 on their photography package. My standard wedding photography packages can be viewed here.
I have been fortunate enough to photograph several weddings and elopements in the Blue Mountains, NSW and I wholeheartedly believe it is a magical place. The natural landscape of the region makes for capturing compelling love stories and beautiful, candid images.
I have plenty of mountains-based friends in the wedding industry, I'd be thrilled to put you in touch with other wedding businesses such as caterers, reception venues, dressmakers, florists and many more.
My favourite place in the Blue Mountains is Leura, NSW, partly because they have some of the best darndest coffee! It has a special family significance because my brother got married in Leura at a stunning wedding venue called Leuralla Public Gardens Amphitheatre. It was the perfect destination to watch him marry his best friend and I was proud to be his best man.
The Blue Mountains is located within the Country of the Dharug and Gundungurra peoples. As a wedding photographer working on stolen land, I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land.
If you are getting married in the Blue Mountains, I encourage you to do your own research into the land you are having your wedding on. You can also ask your wedding celebrant to include an Acknowledgement of Country in your formal ceremony proceedings.
