Are you looking for a Canberra wedding photographer? Hank is a Canberra-born wedding photographer who has been capturing intimate and romantic love stories since 2013.
I was born and bred in Canberra where I attended a high school in Dickson, and later Lake Ginninderra College. It was in Canberra where I first discovered my love of wedding photography, which has now enabled me to travel all around Australia and beyond capturing people’s special days. There is nothing I love more than celebrating a wild, romantic love story in my hometown of Canberra.
I am frequently in Canberra for work or visiting family, so please feel free to get in touch if you’d like any more information, or would like to set up a meeting. My favourite place to meet is Monster Bar in New Acton - I highly recommend you check it out if you haven't been before.
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 name "Canberra" is taken from a few Indigenous words that mean "meeting place". And what better place to have all of your family and friends meet together to celebrate your wedding. Take your pick of some of Australia's most iconic buildings such as the National Gallery or National Museum of Australia, enjoy a waterfront ceremony at Lake Burley Griffin, or head to the gorgeous wine country nearby for some love in the vines.
There are plenty of stunning wedding venues in Canberra, including Fitter’s Workshop, The Boat House, Poacher’s Pantry and more. I have been fortunate to photograph at dozens of locations and venues around Canberra, and I have an especially sweet spot for New Acton and the National Arboretum.
Will you travel to Canberra to photograph my wedding?
Yes. Absolutely! Although I live in Sydney, I relish any opportunity to come home to Canberra for a wedding. I like to say that Canberra is “just down the road”, and it gives me a chance to catch up with my family and see my baby niece
Do you charge travel fees for weddings in Canberra?
No, I don’t charge any travel fees for Canberra weddings. The key is to book me in early to avoid missing out (typically 12 months in advance).
Have you got some ideas about where we can take our wedding photos around Canberra?
Having spent my adolescent years roaming around Canberra, I have a few favourite locations that I love returning to with brides and grooms. However, I always love to hear from my clients if they have particular places that are sentimental to them.
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.
Canberra is Ngunnawal Country. As a wedding photographer working on stolen land, I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land.
If you are getting married in Canberra, 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.
