Are you looking for a Blue Mountains wedding photographer? Hank is a Blue Mountains wedding photographer who has been capturing intimate and romantic love stories since 2013.
I'm Hank; wedding photographer, board game collector and self-proclaimed "imperfect vegan." I have a passion for celebrating the joy of marriage through sustainable and ethical practices and have been photographing love stories since 2013.
I believe that life is full of both grand adventures and intimate moments - many of which I've had the pleasure of capturing in my work. Whether it's with family, friends or clients; these moments truly make life worth living.
When I'm not attending weddings (and busting out "The Hank Crank" on the dance floor), you can find me cooking scrambled tofu for friends or waiting in line to see the next Marvel movie.
The Blue Mountains in NSW 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.
As one of Australia's premier wedding destinations, the Blue Mountains provide engaged couples with sensational backdrops for photos, along with year-round photogenic weather.
I am personally a fan of the clouds and mist, and the Mountains do not disappoint.
I have also photographed countless elopements at some of the Blue Mountains' most unique lookouts.
Do you travel to the Blue Mountains?
Yes. Absolutely! Photographing weddings in the Blue Mountains has got to be one of my favourite things to do. The cool, balmy weather makes for an incredible canvas to shoot raw, intimate adventures.
Do you charge travel fees for weddings in the Blue Mountains?
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.
Have you got some ideas about where we can take our wedding photos?
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.
How much do you charge to shoot a wedding?
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 and I wholeheartedly believe it is a magical place. I have plenty of mountains-based friends in the wedding industry, I'd be thrilled to put you in touch with caterers, venues, dressmakers, florists and many more.
My favourite place in the Blue Mountains is Leura, partly because they have the best darndest coffee! But also because my brother got married in Leura at the stunning Leuralla Public Gardens Amphitheatre a few years ago, so I have very fond memories there.
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.
